"Evans" in St Johns Newfoundland
« on: Friday 28 November 08 03:09 GMT (UK) »
William King Evans born St Johns Newfoundland 5 Sept 1899. His father was , Theophillus and mother was Celia King. They lived on Pope and Tesser Place in St Johns. William had several brothers and sisters, 13 in all which 4 or five brothers were killed in WW1
William Evans was in the army and I think he went to Nova Scotia and joined a Highland Regiment. After the war he went to Calgary in 1919, married Gertrude Alice Frazee on 23 July 1923. In the depression they relocated to Port Alberni. William died 9 Nov.1968
Would like any info on the Evans of St Johns Newfoundland
