Excerpt from The Descendants of David Evans of Charlestown, Mass: To Which Is Appended Partial Records of Certain Families Connected With Them by Marriage
The following pages have been condensed from a more voluminous manuscript, not intended for publication, addressed to my ... children, and written in a colloquial style, which must be my excuse for the occasional use of the first personal pronoun, and for references to myself as the writer and actor in some of the inci dents. In consequence of the intimate connection of the families under consideration with the history of the town of Fryeburg, Me., it was believed that the relation of some of the facts of that history would enhance the interest of this work to many who look back upon that place as their ancestral home. Even in so small a record as this, the vast amount of labor, research and correspondence involved can only be appreciated by one who has undertaken a similar task. Perfect accuracy of data has been aimed at, and infinite pains have been employed to secure it. Multiplicity of detail and the imperfection of carelessly kept or entirely neglected family records must be the apology for any errors that have been made.
