Evan T Jones

11 April 2020

That’s Evan Thomas Jones somewhat post-war at the back right next to his wife Susan Schultz and other family. He’s seated at the left in the smaller picture with his brother William, probably taken before the war. Both photographs are from great-great-granddaughter Carol Lewis Haughey.

Evan and William enlisted in New York City in August 1861 as Privates in Company K of the 57th New York Infantry. Evan was hit on the forehead by a piece of shell at Antietam in September 1862 but survived that and the war. He was a miner in Pennsylvania and he and Susan had 9 children between 1868 and 1890.
