Just a stab in the dark. Has anyone run across any COVEY folks in
their research. They probably would have come to Iowa from New York
in the early 1800's to mid 1800's. Any help you can give me will be

Regarding the pedigree for Samuel Franklin Evans, married to Nancy Locke.
The parents of Samuel Franklin Evans according the descendents I have come in contact
with are still unknown at present.
My THEORY (stress theory) is that his father may have been Robert C. Evans who was
married to Elizabeth Davidson.
Robert died about 1812 by drowning in the Tennessee River near Strawberry Plains
Tennessee. His widow moved later with her married children first to Putnam County,
Indiana and then to Davis County Iowa. In the Troy cemetery there is a grave for an
"Elizabeth Evans (Mrs. R)."
Robert C. Evans was the son of Samuel and Ann Colville Evans.
Samuel Franklin Evans lived at the edge of Troy I believe according to what I have
seen until about 1865 when he, his wife and some of their children moved to California.
Part of my "theory" is that a brother may have been William D. Evans who lived at
Troy and who also contributed the name "Bloomfield" for the county seat. The
circumstances surrounding these two are similar as best I can tell (widowed mother, a
move to Putnam Co and then to Davis Co.) but I have no documentation to prove any of
it as this is not my direct line of Evans descendents from Samuel and Ann Colville Evans
I can provide other individuals who are researching this line and might not have been
in contact with perhaps.
