101 "Eleazar was the son of John and Elizabeth Evans of Loudoun County, VA. 

For decades descendants of Eleazar had no clue as to his parentage. Family tradition said he was orphaned young, and there was no record of his parents, any siblings, or of who raised him. His father was believed to have been killed in the Revolution.

Some referred to him as Eleazar II, but there was no known connection to any other Eleazar who could have been his father. 

Eleazar moved his family to Goshen Twp, Belmont County, OH in 1803. In 1839 he settled at the south fork of Captina Creek in Wayne Twp. The house he built there burned in 1884, but was re-built on the same spot by his grandson Lee Evans, who lived in it at that time. (The house was still there and occupied, though not by anyone from the Evans family, when I photographed it in 1985.)

There are no tombstones at Hunter Cemetery for Eleazar or his wife, though they are supposed to be buried there. One descendant says the church was destroyed by fire and re-built, perhaps at a different location. This could account for there not being any tombstones at its present location. (The date on this Cemetery photo is 1897, but there are some stones dating back to the 1830s.) 

In the last decade, researchers have found evidence indicating that John Evans was the father of Eleazar. He had two wives and many other children, but the family structure is not clear. I am speculating that Eleazar was the only child of his first wife Elizabeth, who perhaps died in childbirth, and the child was raised by someone else. The remaining children seem to be much younger, and probably belonged to the second wife Deborah.:

His parents, Ignatius and Bethsheba, came to Goshen Township, Belmont County in 1807 and settled about one mile southwest of where the village of Belmont now stands. The country was almost an unbroken wilderness, and little George had to take hold of the work as soon as he could lift a twig of branch.

George grew up to manhood with his parents, and in 1829 he married Miss Eliza McFarland. He has seven children who have grown to years of maturity ... three sons and four daughters ... Lemuel, Thomas William, George Bentley, Bethsheba Jane, Elizabeth Ann, Lydia Louisa, and Mary Viola. Two of the sons, Thomas and Lemuel served in the Civil War. Of the daughters, three are married.

116 "George Williams, a Welsh Quaker who signed the 1742 petition to divide Prince George's Parish, had no land surveyed or patented in the Frederick County area.He may even have lived a little south of the mouth of the Monocacy River. But he was associating with the Monocacy Quakers when his son Richard Williams was born in their area in 1726. The records of the New Garden Meeting of North Carolina on December 11, 1746 reported the marriage of Richard Williams to Prudence Beals, daughter of John Beals, 'of Monoquosy, Prince George's County in Maryland of Virginia."p. 84.

He probably settled in this area in 1704 when most of the grants were given.
From the book entitled "Colonial Families of the United States, Volume II" by George Norbury Mackenzie:George Williams, a Welsh Quaker (or Friend), arrived at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with a train of Quakers about the year 1690, and shortly afterwards settled in Prince George's (now Frederick) Co., Maryland, and died at Monocacy Creek, in that county, leaving a son, Richard Williams.
