George Evans and Ella Brakefield, my 3rd great grandparents, married on 18 Jan 1878 in Henry County, Indiana. George Evans was the son of Samuel Evans and Susannah Warren. Ella was the daughter of William C. Brakefield and Hannah L. (maiden name unknown). George and Ella’s story is one filled with love and sorrow. Four children were born to this union, William Manson Evans, Lemuel Evans, Walter Evans and Elizabeth Evans. At the young age of 22 years, old Ella took sick and died less than two months after giving birth to her daughter Elizabeth.
Thank you for reading.
