    • John and Susan EVANS resided in Sullivan, Oneida Co(sic), NY.
      !The CHAPMAN Family (1854); Rev. F.W. Chapman.
      NOTE: Madison County was probably intended.

      But by 1854, they had actually already removed to Niagara County. Probably in 1848, as in 1855 the NY state census indicates John had been there (Niagara county), seven years. Ellen was the first child born to the family in Niagara County in 1849.

      About the year 1850, the area of Sullivan had a higher immigrant population from Wales, Ireland and Germany than the entire population of the rest of the county.
