John Evans was born on August 7, 1867. He married Emma Bartron. John drowned on his farm on August 25, 1896. His grave can be found at Darling Cemetery, Cherry Ridge Twp. in northeastern PA, USA.

The Honesdale Citizen reported on 3 Sep 1896: "John Evans of Cherry Ridge, met an accidental death, in a little pond on his farm, last Thursday morning, while fishing. He was a victim of epilepsy, and it is thought that while in a spasm, he fell into the water, which, where his body was found, was not fifteen inches deep. Deceased was 29 years of age, and leaves a wife and two children. Interment was in the Cherry Ridge Cemetery, on Sunday afternoon."
