David Woolley Evans

David is almost certainly author of our source "Lost on the Plains." Captain _______ was undoubtedly William Budge who served as bishop of the northern Utah community of Providence, Logan Stake from 1864 to 1870. The "Brother P. now living at Payson" was very probably Alvis (Alvus) Patterson, who was not a Captain of 10, but an assistant Sergeant of the Guard in the Budge Company (see the 1870 Utah Census). A John Ames was also living in Payson in 1870--possibly the man mentioned in Evans' article. Part of the Evans family is in the 1862-1863 Company of the unknown years.
