The red man and wild animals were common features. Many trees had been felled, in order to make a way for their present home, and it is certain that the deceased did his share of the work for his life of industry, economy, and honest integrity. Here he prospered, sufficient to gain means which placed him beyond want. William Evilsizor, Sr. and Nancy Jenkins were married December 10, 1829, in Champaign County, Ohio.

Mr. Evilsizor has 20 children. 11 sons and 9 daughters. About 14 years before his death, he united with the Harmony Baptist Church. He was baptized by his brother Rev Henry EVILSIZOR, who was a minister in the Christian Church. To this church, he proved faithful until death, leaving two aged brothers, Squire and Allen. He departed this life July 25, 1892 aged 84 years, 1 months, 15 days. Of this family death has now removed a loving and kind father, mother, and step-mother, 4 brothers and 2 sisters, while 7 brothers and 7 sisters with a large number of grand and great grandchildren.
