Evers from Illinois and Scranton, Pa
Posted by: John Walker (ID *****5361) Date: September 19, 2002 at 10:36:49
  of 662

My great grandfather, John Evers, was born in Scranton, PA on July 18, 1849 to Patrick and Catherine Evers. Apparently, Catherine was killed soon after John was born in a farm accident. John was an itinerant baseball player and migrated to the Dakotas. He became a coal miner and moved to Janetown, Iowa, and married Matilda Shannon. They had seven daughters and one son. They then moved on to Canton Illinois. Any information would be appreciated.
