      Evander married Mary Charlotte 'Mae' Dawkins on June 14, 1913 in Richmond Co., NC. I believe you have the dates for Mrs. Mae. She is buried at Mizpah Cemetery in Rockingham, Richmond Co., NC. Her parents were: Richard Dawkins 1872-1925 (no specifics here) and Mollie Sanford born 1869; unsure on her date of death. Also unsure on where born, buried, or married. I do not know either of their parents' names. Sorry!

      Mae and Vander had three children before her untimely death: 1) Hazel Odessa born 24 Feb. 1916 in NC; died 14 May 1983 in Rockingham, Richmond Co., NC Buried at Eastside Cemetery in Rockingham (unsure of actual burial date). She married Joseph Benjamin ('Ben') Thomas. I will have dates on him shortly. They had 2 children: Rita Thomas and Butch Thomas. I feel sure Butch is a nickname, of course. Both of them are still living; I need to get birth dates for them, and dates for their father.

      2) Donald Franklin born 9 June 1918 in Richmond Co., NC; died 20 May 2002 in Rockingham, Richmond Co., NC (I want to clarify his place of burial). He was married twice. First wife was Ollie Mae Goodwin. She was born 7 June 1915 in Chesterfield Co., SC and died in childbirth on 2 Nov. 1938 in Hamlet, Richmond Co., NC. Her parents were William Miles Goodwin and Minnie Lee Barmer. If you want dates or locations for them, let me know--I have all of theirs. I am unsure if the child she had was a boy or a girl if you were curious. While still on the subject, Ollie Mae also had a child with a Peter L. England, but I know none of his data.

      I do not believe they ever married, but they had a son, Robert Lee ('Bobby') England, born 27 Nov. 1936 in Rockingham, Richmond Co., NC and died in Dec. 1979 (I do not know the exact date or location). He was married to a lady named Ann, but I do not know any of her specifics other than she'd married a Carpenter before my cousin Bobby England.

      Donald's second wife was Euna Mae Johnson born 11 May 1920 in Chesterfield Co., SC and died 5 Feb. 2006 in Rockingham, Richmond Co., NC. Donald and Euna Mae had 4 children, and I do not know any dates for them at this time. Their children were Yvonne, Danny, Randy, and David Anthony ('Tony'). I can tell you Tony died earlier this year in Charlotte, and is buried at the Veteran's Cemetery in Salisbury there near the hospital. Danny is also deceased. Let's start with these names, and I promise you I will get better info on them and their families.

      3) James Evander ('Jake') Williams was my grandpa. He was born 16 Nov. 1921 in Rockingham, Richmond Co., NC, and died 3 Dec. 1989 in Rockingham also. He is buried at Richmond
      Memorial Park in Rockingham. He married Odessa Lee Goodwin (a sister to my Uncle Donald's wife Ollie Mae from above). She was born 17 Oct. 1923 in Chesterfield Co., SC and died 20 Dec. 2013 in Rockingham, Richmond, NC. She is also buried at Richmond Memorial Park in Rockingham. Her parents are listed above--William Miles Goodwin and Minnie Lee Barmer. My grandparents had three beautiful daughters: my mother Reecie Faye, born 30 Dec. 1939 in Rockingham and she died 10 Dec. 2012 in Rockingham, Richmond, NC. She was cremated, and her 'cremains' (as they call them now) were interred at Richmond Memorial Park next to her parents. The other girls are Hollie Mae and Martha Opal. Both of them were born in Rockingham, Richmond Co., NC, and I need to get more info on them as well.

      Vander's second wife was Lula Juanita Goodwin, and if you're wondering about that last name, yes, she was a sister to Donald's wife Ollie Mae and my maternal grandma Odessa Lee. So the Williams father and his two sons married three
      Goodwin sisters and made everyone 'double kin!'
