Mary Frances EVANS

Sorry for the long vacation! No excuses - but it is time to get back on track.

I had an exciting weekend this past weekend - April 7-9, 2007: because I just made another, a new contact with a Tener descendant from the Blue Book. This particular branch has been elusive to me - and then I received a "hint" from a previous contact and, "EUREKA" more open doors!

Genealogy is a wonderful past time, hobby, some may even call it an addiction - but that sounds excessive!

Today I received the following picture - to share: it is what looks like a painting of Eliza Frost at age 16. Since she was born in 1844 in Nottingham, England - we can fairly accurately 'guestimate' the date of this picture at 1862. Three years later she would become Mrs. Hampden Evans Tener I. Enjoy:
