      Phelps "Philip" Evans
      Birth 22 Nov 1834
      New Tecumseth, Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada
      Death 19 Feb 1916 (aged 81)
      Bond Head, Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada
      Burial
      Bond Head United Church Cemetery
      Bond Head, Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada
      Plot Row 12, Plot 3, West section

      Son of David Evans and Hannah {Smith} Evans of Lot 16, Concession 7, Tecumseth Township, Simcoe County

      Phelps "Philip" Evans and Eleanor "Ellen" Clark were married in 1862, and eventually had 6 children

      Parents of:
      * Minetta {Evans} Long of Bond Head
      * Fred Evans (moved to Saskatchewan)
      * Selby Evans (Winnipeg, then Vernon BC)
      * Norman Phelps Evans (lived in Dauphin, MB)
      * Clark Evans (moved to Seattle, WA)
      * David Evans (lived in Newmarket, ON)

      Phelps Evans was a contractor and builder, and spent some time as far away as Michigan. He came back to the north half of Lot 2, Concession 6 West Gwillimbury Township, next to the present-day Bond Head United Church (and this cemetery). Here he built a sash and door factory. Later, he and his wife retired in a house he built in Bond Head village

      Phelps Evans died as a result of an accident, in his 82nd year

      Mr and Mrs Evans were highly respected residents, and the houses in the area that he built, have stood the test of time
