Child of Evan and Nancy:

Narrative

     Evan married first Eleanor Laswell. Eleanor died before 1830. Evan also married Nancy Patterson and Sarah (Wells) Bradford. The marriage date to Sarah was 25 April 1836. Robert Hinton indicates that Evan had a daughter Mary Wealthy Henton born in 1831. Since Eleanor was deceased by then and he did not marry Sarah until 1836, Mary must be the daughter of Nancy Patterson and thus she was his second wife with Sarah being his third wife.

Children of Evan and Margaret:

Narrative

     From Wayland's "History of Rockingham County": "The oldest well-known summer resort in Rockingham is located four miles east of Harrisonburg, and is now called Massanetta Springs. The old name is Taylor Springs. The original name-givers were Jonathan and William Taylor, owners at the beginning of the 19th century. They were of Irish descent, and their graves are at Cross Keys. In olden days, according to tradition, Taylor Springs were resorted to by many of the East Virginia notables, i.e. the Madisons and Monroes, among others. In 1816 they were selected as a permanent place for the annual campmeeting by the quarterly conference, Rockingham Circuit, of the Methodist Episcopal Church; and were leased at that time for ten years. On the death of the Taylors, the Springs passed into the possession of Evan Henton, who was proprietor in 1854, and thereabouts. Later, they were sold to Abraham Miller. In the early 60’s they came into the hands of Geo. E. Deneale, and in 1870 Leneas Woodson became owner. In 1872 they were purchased by a company made up of John F. Lewis, Dr. Burk Chrisman, and others, and the name was changed to Massanetta."

     Evan went west and came back settling in Taylor Springs.61
