57 "At his home at Zanesfield, Logan county, Ohio 8th month, 27th, 1883, Lemuel Watkins, age 78 years, 7 months, and 7 days.

A member of Goshen meeting for more than 50 Years. Has always been faithful in attending meeting twice a week, but did not make a public profession until a few years ago, when he realized the joys of God's salvation. Since then, when able to be there, has not only had a seat in the house of God, but his voice was often heard in testimony and sometimes in prayer.

While passing through the most intense suffering, he said if it was not for the hope he had, the pain would be much harder to bear. He died in the triumphs of living faith, and a hope of glorious immortality beyond the grave."

73 "C. Vernon Eddy was the first librarian of Winchester's Handley Library, serving from 1913 until 1959. The Winchester native began his professional career when he ran a printing company with his brother while still in school. The enterprise grew into one of the state's largest publishers until it went bankrupt in 1904. He later moved to Philadelphia and eventually learned the library trade. In 1912 the board of trustees of the new library, built with funds provided by benefactor John Handley named him its librarian. Dealing with a limited budget, Eddy emphasized the acquisition of family papers while creating an accessible atmosphere for patrons. He also became known for cataloging the maps and papers of Jedediah Hotchkiss, a cartographer and topographer for Confederate generals Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson andRobert E. Lee during the American Civil War (1861–1865). Eddy died of heart disease in 1963."

87 "David Patterson was born in Perthshire, Scotland, March 11, 1794, and came to this country in 1812 in time to see the burning of Buffalo, although he was not a belligerent. He located at Buffalo, which he made his home for two years and then moved to Oneida, New York, and began to farm, and by this labor he lived until 1834, when he went to Sheridan [New York] and continued farming until old age compelled his retirement. Then he moved to Dunkirk [New York] and died January 17, 1877.

He was early taught the Presbyterian faith but joined the Baptist church after coming to America and died in its faith. Politically, Mr. Patterson was originally a democrat, but when the slavery question agitated the country, he transferred his allegiance to the whigs and afterward to the republicans. He was active in politics and energetic in business, decided in his convictions and one so well informed, that it was difficult to touch a subject upon which he could not talk intelligently.

He served five years in the British navy before coming to America and married, on October 31, 1818, Eva Kern, who was a native of County Wicklow, Ireland, born July 8, 1892. Her father, John Kern, was a sea captain who came to America some years after the Irish rebellion of 1798, and died in Oneida County, New York, in 1839, aged ninety years. Mrs. Patterson is still living with her son in Dunkirk, with a mind unimpaired by age. She is a member of the Baptist church."

93 "Education and financial assistance are very important factors in achieving success in the business world of to-day, but they are not the main elements. Persistency and determination figure much more prominently and a man possessed of those qualities is bound to win a fair amount of success. William P. Green, whose name forms the caption for this article,earned his own education and during the later years of his life he has climbed to a high place on the ladder of achievement. He is one of the most prominent citizens in Carthage and at the present time, in 1911, is secretary and treasurer of the Carthage Transfer & Storage Company, one of the most important business concerns in this city.

William P. Green was born in Clinton county, Ohio, on the 9th of February, 1848, and he is a son of Jesse and Alice (Paxson) Green, both of whom were born and reared in the state of Ohio, the former in Clinton county and the latter in Logan county. In the agnatic line William P. Green traces his ancestry back to stanch old North Carolina stock, his ancestors having come to America from Ireland, about the year 1800, and on the maternal side he is descended from an old Tennessee family.

In the public schools of his native place William P. Green received his early educational training, working on his father's farm during the busy seasons and attending school during the winter terms. He was engaged in agricultural pursuits in Ohio until the year 1870, at which time he came to Jasper county, Missouri, where he was engaged in farming until 1875. In that year he settled in Carthage, where he engaged in the farm machinery business, following the same for the ensuing five years, at the expiration of which he began to travel for a farm-machinery concern. He represented the Champion Harvester Machine Company of Springfield, Ohio, for ten years and for three years he was with the Deere Mansur Company of St. Louis, Missouri. Subsequently he again entered the employ of the Springfield company, traveling for twenty-six years in all. In 1894 he established the Green-Hurst Transfer company, his business partner having been Earl Hurst and the place of business located at Carthage. Three years later,when the Carthage Transfer & Storage Company was incorporated, Mr. Green became secretary and treasurer of that concern.

In politics Mr. Green is an ardent supporter of Republican principles, believing that the policies of that party make for the best government. He has never desired political preferment of any description but gives freely of his aid and influence in support of all measures and enterprises projected for the good of the general welfare. In their religious faith the family are devout members of the First Congregational church, in which Mr.Green is a member of the board of trustees. Mr. Green is strictly a self-made man and in view of that fact his success in life is the more gratifying to contemplate. He is a man of great benevolence and broad human sympathy and it may be said concerning him that the circle of his friends is coincident with that of his acquaintances."

94 "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.:

Elizabeth married secondly David Helm born about 1825 as his second wife on 1 May 1866 in Pulaski County, Indiana. They had at least two children (Rebecca and Ettie) before Elizabeth died in 1872."
