the in title of tne the fore of will ..... ol the tne for on of ot as - of to - THE EVANS FAMILY. Or Delaware County, Pennsylvania. The following corrections of Rev. Mr. Hayden's article on the Genealogy of the Evans Family, comes "Aston Place," Ard - more, Penna. We give place to it from the fact that Notes and Queries, without entering into any controversary, whatever, is desirous of presenting the truth in our Pennsylvania History. I desire to correct a few errors in the Evans senealogy as it appeared in recent Issues of Notts and Queries. The mistakes noted were in the chapter containing an account of the Owen family, descendants of Owen ap - Evan, son of Evan Robert Lewis. x be manuscript in the possession of your correspondent is a copy, or, perhaps, I should say, one of several copies of the original genealogy compiled about 1800 to 1820, as stated. These old papers, while they give correct descent from Evan Robert Lewis, and on this account have a certain value, are all more or less in error as regards other information. During the past few years I have spent mnch time investigating the Owen family, of Merion, and such informa tion as I have been able to collect, will be fonnd in the July number (1889) of the "Pennsylvania Magazine of History," to gether with authorities. The corrections I desire to make are as follows : Robert Owen's wife was Rebecca, not Jane, as stated. She was the daughter of Owen Humphrey, Esquire, ol Llwyn - du, in Merionethshire, a justice of the peace under Oliver Cromwell. Robert Owen and "Jane, his wife, and Lewis, their son, " came to Philadelphia in 1684, settled on Duck Creek, New Castle County, and the old couple died in 1685. This fact has led to a confusion of persons. Robert and Rebecca Owen removed to Penn sylvania in 1690 and settled in Merion, on about 500 acres of land purchased from Thomas Lloyd. They had issue : i, MJvrn, b. in Wales; m. Mary lloskins. ii. Jane, b. 1685 in Wales. tit. Elizabeth, b. 1687 in Wales; m. David Evans. in. Owen, b. 1690 in Merion; m. Anne Wood. v. John, b. 1692 in Merion; m. Hannah Maris. vi. Robert, b. 1695 in Merion; m. Su sanna Hudson. vii. Rebecca, b. 1697 in Merion; d. infant Evan Owen was a Provincial Councillor of Pennsylvania, colonial judge, and altogether a man of mark; he died 1727. Owen Owen became high slierin: ot Phila delphia, and John, his brother, served for many years in the same office in Chester county; being also member of the Provincial Assembly. Robert Owen married busanna, daughter of William Hudson, Mayor of Philadelphia, and bad three daughters : i. Mary, a. young. ii. Hannah, m. 1st John Ogden; 2ndlv Joseph Wharton. tit. Uacltael, m. Samuel Kemble, of Bur lington, N. J.f By her first husband, John Ugaen, ian - nab. had one son, William Ogden, who had among other children, Hannah who married Captain William Duer (lost at sea 1800), and had Harriet, d. unm. William, d. in fant, Mary Ann m. Lewis Washington Glenn, son of James, of Maryland, and had William Duer Glenn d. s. p. in Cairo, Egypt, 1875, Edward Glenn, of Ardmore, and Hannah Cuthbert, who m. A. W. North who d. a. p. By her second husband, Joseph Wharton, Hannah Owen had besides other children, Robert Wharton, Mayor of Philadelphia, Captain of the City Troop, etc. Turning again to the children ot Uwen ap Evan, of Fron Goch, I find that Ellen, or Elin, married Cadwalader Thomas ap Hugh of Kiltalgarth, in Llanvanr, Merionethshire. They had two sons and a daughter. One of these sons, John Cadwalader, came to Mer ion, in Pennsylvania, 1698, and married a daughter of Dr.Thomas Wynne. This was the ancestor of the Cadwalader family of Phila delphia, and is not to be confused with John Cadwallader who died in the West Indies.

VI. rWe conclude in this number of Notes and Queries the very interesting list of Dauphin county inhabitants of 1794. Heidleberg comprised the eastern portion of Dauphin county. Since 1813, when Leba non county waB created, it has been divided into several townships. It was originally formed in 1757, whilst a part of Lancaster and Berks counties. Its exact boundaries were not established until the erection of Dauphin county in 1785. IleUelbers Townahlp. IIARKISBURG CnURCnKS. Where the Pulpits Will be Occupied morrow.

TSUI KWOYAN'S WAKDROBB, Gorgeous Gowns of tho Wife ef the New Chinese Minister. At the ball she will have the assistance of the Minister and his legation, and the attendance of the entire suite, bi't she will not be permitted to dance, promenade or even shake hands with a man. Mrs. Tsui will return calls, and instead of asking her to remove her bonnet, the cosmopolitan hostess will invite her to take oft? her petticoat, at the same time directing tho maid of honor lo show her mistress to a private parlor. This petticoat, by the way, is a marvelous vestment, made of the finest silk sewed with stitches of infinitesimal length and laid in 100 plaits, embellished on one side with low tones of embroidery and worked along the inner folds with flat flower patterns stitched with bright but delicate threads. She has 200 toilets in her troussean, including the jewel - embroidered shoes, satin stockings, silk trousers, petticoat, robe, coat and hat bands, and valued at an average of $1,300 a suit. All her satin shoes are hand - wrought. Those for dressy affairs are studded with Ceylon pearls, the toe being tipped with a solitary pearl much larger in circumference than the thumb joint of her pretty brown hand. The trousers are made of plain silk, those for cool or cold weather having fleece or fur lining. The petticoat is a work of needle painting. The robe, of superb embossing or brocading, has a lining of silver work, and the very perfection ot embroidery is shown in the gores and sleeves of the coat.

Sitting by her in a parlor and wishing to introduce conversation I asked her: 'Are yon a married or a single lady?' She curtly replied: I am only half married,' and remained an silent as before. This stamped me, as I had never hoard of such a case belore. one saw she had excited my curiosity, and no doubt enjoyed it. At length I ventured to ask : 'Will you please explain that half married? I don't understand it. ' She replied : 'If you mnst know tho trnth about it, I have trained my own consent to marry, and when the other half of the couple to make the match gains his consent we will have a wedding.

ImpIoye.. Edison's employes in Edisonvillo, N. J., as it will soon be called aro said to be preparing an electrical novelty by way of a surprise for their chief when ho lands fresh from his triumphs abroad and comes home to the town which is best known by his residence. They greet with derision the reports that the Parisians were disappointed in his personal appearance and declared that ho neither looked nor dressed his role of savant. Edison and some of his young men went abroad, the stay - at - homes say, in soft hats and knock - abouc clothes. They we:t for a royal good time and they had it. Now they are coming homo to work and to dazzle the wordly with an electrical display of ptartling novelties. One of Edison's chiefs lives in Newark in a house which is all agog with wires. As one approaches tho front gate it swings open and shuts automatically. The visitor's foot on tho steps of the porch rings a bell iu the kitchen and also one in the master's study. Jiv touching a button he opens the front door before the stranger has time to knock. An electrical muBic - box plays during dinner. When tho guest retires to his bed room the folding bed unfolds by electricity. When he puts out tho gas a strange, mocking diHplay of skeletons, gravestones, owls nml other hidoous phantasmagoria dunces about on the wall at his feot, reappearing and disappearing in a ghostly electrical glare. Edison's young men play with electricity as small boys do with fire. None ot them has handled a "dead" wire with fatal results yet. a
