I am William C. Evans Jr, my grand father is Orland C. Evans and his father was Jesse Evans but since they were born in the 1800s and died before I was born I have on idea of our family tree.  All I know is the birthday for this file is about the same as my GGF and my GF was born in 1879 and married Hulda Knight she was born in 1890.
WikiTree profile: Jesse Evans

I am so frustrated and have been trying to get decades of family tree ged files up from ancestry.  Because the files are huge, I have been deleting folks from them, trying to skip the repeats.  And I have gone to family search and connected those that look the same.   I would love to answer your question, but alas, the answers are locked up in a GED file that I can't seem to clear because of the over 10 matches.   Yesterday, I took an almost 700 member file down to 420.  It felt like sacrilege!  But we are of the same line.  I recognize the names.   I am trying to get it up.  Did your family head west from KY, to Arkansas or Georgia?  And have you signed into family search and entered your names?   The only problem is, when you use family search if there are aliases or parentages without explanation, it's hard to get the people sourced.   I did finally get some help.  So be careful there.   I'm a newly at this wiki tree and I came here to share with folks like you.  Sorry and I'll try to be back.
