Evans, Esther (1838 - 30 AUG 1923)
Mrs. Esther Evans died August 30, 1923 at the home of her daughter-in-law, Mrs. George Evans, in the town of Pine Valley, Clark County, Wis., aged 85 years. She was born in Connecticut in 1838, her maiden name being Ester Ann Gregory. She was married to Edward Evans in 1860 and lived in Canada a few years, then moved to Mackford, Wis. Her husband died in 1893. About seven years ago she came here to live with her son, George Evans, and remained at this home until her death. For the past two years she was an invalid, being confined to her bed most of the time for the past four months. Of the eight children born to her and her husband, only three survive: Emily Evans of Flandreau, S.D.; John Evans, Whitewood, S.D., and R. C. Evans, Pontiac, Ill. She leaves 14 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren.
Owing to her age and feeble health, she made but few acquaintances here, but all who met her, felt that in the days of her health and strength she was a woman of superior qualities.
The remains were taken to Mackford for burial beside her husband, and were accompanied there by Mrs. Geo. Evans and daughter, Mrs. Louis Hantke.
