1886--1955 [Beloved Grandfather of Midge Frazel]

Evans7 (Charles6, Dudley5, Edward4, Nathan3, William2, Lt. William1) was born 22 September 1886 in North Stonington, CT. His father Charles Edward STEWART, of N. Stonington and his mother Adah Ann EVANS of Adams, MA lived there for a time and then moved to Westerly, RI. Charles's father was Dudley Wheeler STEWART, last child of Edward STEWART and wife Rebecca NOYES.

Rebecca's brother Avery Denison NOYES is buried in this plot.

Dudley married Eliza Fish DENISON, daughter of Isaac DENISON and Levina FISH buried here. After Dudley died, she went to live with her son Charles and his wife Ada and so, Evans lived with his grandmother and heard the "Denison stories".

Evans took part of his father's business [Westerly Laundry] and moved to Cranston, RI after marrying Hannah Josephine BARBER of Westerly. Evans and H. Josephine had two children: Dorothy Frances [my mother] and Evans Jr.

Evans died in Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston on 26 June 1955.
