After the death of Andrew HAMILTON, his widow Mary (BEALL) remarried to Thomas
EVANS14 by 1724. A widow with small children and real estate as Mary had
often remarried within months of the death of their husband, and they likely
married as early as 1719. Thomas EVANS had several proved children, although it is
unknown if all were by his wife Mary. Because of his known age, Walter was likely
a son by Mary. Jane may have been by a first wife, in that in her will she referred
to both Andrew HAMILTON and George HAMILTON as brother-in-law, while Elizabeth Evans
was called her sister. The term "brother-in-law" was commonly used for step siblings,
and less commonly for half siblings.
