Thomas Evans Family of Johnson County Kentucky Updated December 28, 2010
About Our Family Research
I have been searching for the origin of the Thomas Evans family for over 30 years, on and off. Thomas Evans originally came to Kentucky with his wife Nancy, presumably from North Carolina. As of yet I have been unable to find Nancy's maiden name, and there is an odd notation in one census that lists her as having been born in Virginia, where all previous ones say NC. I am still working on this, as I have been unable to search farther back. From dates available, I have been able to see that Thomas Evans was born in 1810, but can not find his death records, marriage records, or parents' names. I will keep on searching. Most of our family has moved away from our Johnson County, Kentucky home, but some still live near Paintsville and Flat Gap.
