David Evans is assumed to be my ancestor through his son Eli. However, I do not have Eli's will, and the link from Eli to Mary Evans, wife of James Madison Abbott, is yet unproven. I would certainly like to hear from others tracing these lines. I am going through court and probate records of Lincoln, Moore and Franklin counties, TN, hoping to find records of Eli. I'm also going through Pope Co IL records, but more counties of IL may need to be searched.
