    Sketch: Brief Notes on the Children of Evan Jones
    Dr Evan Jones was twice married, first to Mary Stevenson in about 1725, and secondly to Bridget Mathews. As a Mathews family researcher, I have been most interested to identify the mother of Evan Jones' children.

  • Notes 
    • In the sketch titled "Brief Notes on the Children of Evan Jones", I have compiled very short bios on each of his seven identified children. It is the result of research I have done to try to determine the identity of the mother for each of the children. In this database see - Sketch: Brief Notes on the Children of Evan Jones. Pam Garrett, 2016.

      John Jones is the son of Evan Jones and his first wife Mary Stevenson. "John Jones, surgeon, born in Jamaica, New York, in 1729; died in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 23 June 1791. He was a son of Dr. Evan Jones, a Welsh physician, who came to this country [New York] in 1728. He was educated professionally at the medical schools and hospitals of London, Paris, Leyden, and Edinburgh, where he became acquainted with the most eminent contemporary professors" . . . John Jones went on to a most distinguished career in New York City and Philadelphia. There is no evidence that he ever married or had children.
