Hi Ken,
I will have to look at copies of papers from about 15 years ago. I think this is fron a book about families of Guilford.
The biggest hurdle was figuring out that Mary being first married to John Evarts Jr meant the younger John Evarts in town. This one "John Jr." was son of Daniel and brother of James (sister Anna Bowe's husband). Daniel had a brother John Jr. in town so they must have distinguished between the two John's by calling them senior and junior when they were both alive. The way the books have arranged it makes no sense at all, because they assumed John Jr. meant the son of John in all cases, and it made it look like Mary married someone 30 years older. I'll do a printout for anyone who asks....

I have many more generations than in this list.
Anyway here is how I put the data together.
