Evans, Robert
(1768-1812)
Collection: American Collection
Specialty: Silver
Robert Evans probably began his silversmithing trade sometime between 1790
and 1798, but the exact date is not known due to the lack of biographical
information about him. He was married to Mary Peabody, and died intestate
in 1812. His estate was administered by the silversmith Rufus Farnam, and
Hazen Morse was listed as one of the appraisers.
