Old Evans Family Cemetery
Evans Researchers (and those with an interest):  This cemetery is referred to several times in the book "Our Evans Heritage"
by Ms. Annie Belle (Evans-Dantzler) Bodie.  The cemetery is located between I-95 and U.S. 301 on Old State Rd. (Highway 176)
and is on private property owned by Mr. Charles Hutto (permission should be obtained before visiting the cemetery), a prominent
land-owner and farmer in the area.
The location map below is from the USGS topo, Felderville, SC showing the area near Providence, Orangeburg County, SC.
As an additional area of interest, the gravesite of Captain Rowland Evans is also shown.

This map of the cemetery was developed in the spring of 2007. All names (with the exception of Bair) end in Evans.

The large oak shown here borders the cemetery.
Reportedly other oaks that surrounded the
cemetery were destroyed by Hurricane Hugo.

All of the headstones in the cemetery are shown
below.  A full list of names and inscriptions follows
the photo gallery.

A current view of the cemetery is shown to the
left.  Hopefully, work can be done in the near
future to clean the site of growth, etc.

Thanks to Larry Shuler (shown right) for his help
in locating the cemetery.  Larry is pictured beside
the grave of Sarah Ann Hall--the marker is in
need of repair.
