Thank you rbeyke1 for the information... I guess that sort of makes us cousins! Any further info that you can supply would be greatly appreciated. I haven't been in Petersburg for probably 50 years. I really don't remember much about the Evans family there, as I was quite young at the time. I grew up primarily in California and never really learned much about my grandfather's family, really a lot more ingformation on my grandmothers.
My daughter and her family (now in California) are considering moving back to Indianapolis and I just may come back that way for a visit. I would like to see Pike county and gather information while there. I've been looking at house prices on the web, so who knows, I may just end up going to Petersburg to retire. Never know how things will work out.
Thanks again, and I hope to hear from you soon.
