Sanders E. Evans.

Sanders E. Evans, who owns and operates about three hundred acres of land on section 6, Richland township, was born in Cambria county, Pennsylvania, June 25, 1868.  His parents, William E. and Mary Ann (Williams) Evans, were natives of Wales but were brought to the United States as children by their respective parents.  Both families located in Cambria, Pennsylvania, where the parents of our subject grew to mature years and where their marriage occurred.  In 1870 they emigrated westward and located in Iowa City, whence, in the following year, they came to Adair county.  They settled in Richland township and the father became an extensive landowner, acquiring about nine hundred and sixty acres.  During the last few years of his life he resided with our subject, and he reached the advanced age of eighty-eight years.

Sanders E. Evans received his education in the district schools and upon reaching manhood became his father's partner in the operation of the latter's extensive farm.  They engaged in raising high grade stock and our subject received half of the profits.  When about twenty-two years old he purchased his first land and has since added to his individual holdings, which now comprise about three hundred acres of fine land.  He concentrates the greater part of his time and attention upon stock-raising and has found that occupation very profitable.  He understands the business thoroughly;  is progressive and energetic;  and manages his financial affairs well.  He owns stock in the Fontanelle Lumber Company.

Mr. Evans is a republican in his political belief and fraternally is connected with Fontanelle Lodge, No. 250, I. O. O. F., and the Rebekahs.  He is one of the prominent citizens of his township and has made many warm personal friends.
