I'm glad you posted this info. Did you receive anything further from this grandson, or have any contact info for this branch of the family? I am also descended from David Rising Pendarvis, who married Amanda Tucker 9/29/1853. His oldest son, George H. Pendarvis (b. 7/12/1854, d. 8/30/1923), was my Great-Grandfather.
I am interested in learning about the other children of David and Amanda, as well as further discoveries about the history of Evan Pendarvis.
