As a 7th generation African Canadian I have searched to discover the story of my great, great grandfather who joined the British to fight against the Americans in the War of 1812 and ended up in Nova Scotia Canada. His name was Samuel Evens (Evans) and the first record of him was l816 requesting land from the govenrment of Nova Scotai. I want to know more about him and his life in the United States as a slave and if he came to Canada with a wife and children and if so whom. Who was Samuel Evens? Where did he come from?
