    Anecdote 1912 
    • .... Mr. Evans was united in marriage, in 1888, to Miss Nina
      Mabee, a daughter of John and Celeste (Swart) Mabee. The father
      was born at Hoffmans Ferry, Schenectady county, New York, and
      is a member of one of the old Holland families who settled at a
      very early period in the Mohawk valley in the state of New
      York. On the old homestead the house is still standing which
      was built many years before the Revolutionary war. Many of the
      descendants of the Mabee family were volunteer soldiers in the
      war for independence. John Mabee, the father of Mrs. Evans, is
      a veteran of the Civil war, having enlisted in Company E of a
      New York regiment. At the close of the war he removed to
      Wisconsin and established his home in Plymouth township. For
      some little time after taking up his abode in Wisconsin he was
      employed by the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Company,
      but later returned to his farm where he remained until 1900,
      after which time he removed to Plymouth, Wisconsin, and there
      has since maintained his residence. To Mr. and Mrs. John Mabee
      two children were born: Nina, who was born September 20, 1869,
      and is the wife of the subject of this review; and Giles, who
      is a resident of Plymouth, Wisconsin.
