HENRY D. EVANS.

The subject of this notice was born in Wales in 1812. In 1842 he came to this country, bringing with him his wife and family, and settled in Pittsburgh. He remained in that city and vicinity until 1854, when he located in Johnstown. The deceased was a miner by occupation, and was employed by the Cambria Iron Company up to 1879, when he relinquished all labor, in consequence of increasing years. He enjoyed good health, however, until about a year ago, when he began to fail. Last January his venerable life-partner was called away, and after that event his decline was more rapid. He made his home with his only surviving child, out of a family of six, Mr. Josiah Evans, who resides at No. 77 Vine street.

Mr. Evans was a man of considerable intelligence. He read a great deal, and had a very strong mind. He was a writer of some ability, and furnished many articles on current topics to Welsh newspapers. In politics Mr. Evans was an uncompromising Republican, and always participated actively in the local management of his party. He was a member of the Welsh Baptist Church, a deacon, and for many years a trustee.
