Mrs. Sarah B. Evans, widow of the late Moses Evans, for more than eighty years a resident of Spring Valley township, a member of one of the oldest and most substantial families in the county, died at her home in Spring Valley at 6:15 last Wednesday morning. (Note: She died in 1906, but I do not know the month and day.) She was in her eighty seventh year.
Mrs. Evans’ maiden name was Sarah Huston, and she was the daughter of Robert Huston, a pioneer, who came to Spring Valley township eighty two years ago from Warren county, where she was born November 7, 1822. (Note: Her father was born in 1778 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and married Hannah Townsend (1787-1844) on July 18, 1821, in Waynesville. They had four children that I know of: Mary (1820- ); Mary (1828- ); David Townsend (1825-1883); and Sarah B. Robert died in 1829)
Mrs. Evans leaves her daughter, Miss Elizabeth, with whom she lived, and who tenderly cared for her mother in her declining years; two sons, Joseph and Edward, in Spring Valley; and a son, T. Hilliard, in Urbana. (Note: Sarah and Moses had nine children: Robert H. (1843-1865); Joseph Coppock (1845-1914) – married Anna Ellis Buckles (1846-1890); Daniel T. (1847-1868); Hannah L. (1849-1896); Mary Elizabeth (1851-1920) – married Merrill Scharff (1847- ); Sophia Angeline (1854-1908) – married Newton Berryhill (1841-1918); Thomas Hilliard (1857-1919) - married Nellie Zell (1861- ); Emma (1861-1881), and Moses Edmund (1866-1930) – married Jennie K. Scharff (1867-1908). Sarah’s husband, Moses (1821-1868), was the son of Robert (1797-1868) and Sarah (Coppock) (1799-1871) Evans. They were Quakers from the Newberry District of South Carolina, were probably married in South Carolina on December 18, 1817, moved to Ohio around 1823, and had twelve children: Rebecca (1818- ); Esther Evans (1821-1883) – married Lewis Hartsock (1822-1889) – my 2nd great uncle; Moses; Mary Ann (1823- ) – married Isaac M. Barret (1827- ); Lydia (1824- ) – married William Stanfield; Nancy J. (1825- ) – married Martin Peterson; Isaac (1835- ) – married Matilda C. Stump (1836-1897); Margaret (1839- ) – married Lewis W. Babb; Sophia – married Carroll Whitney; Joseph; Sarah; and Robert.)
For forty years Mrs. Evans was a member of the Methodist Protestant church in Spring Valley. She was a noble Christian wife and mother, and her influence will long be felt in her home and her church.
The funeral service was held at the home at 10 o’clock last Saturday morning conducted by her pastor, Rev. Mr. Reynolds.
