    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.

      Evan Jones was probably the son of Evan Jones and his first wife Mary Stevenson. He "worked for a New York City mercantile house and he had contacts in Spanish Louisiana and British West Florida, during the 1760s and 1770s. After the Revolutionary War, the Confederation Congress appointed him as American consul to the Spanish colonial government in New Orleans. The Spanish in turn appointed him as commandant of the Bayou LaFourche district." Evan Jones married Marie Ponponne Verret in New Orleans and had a number of children.
