About James - Eva Family Tree
Please sign in to see more.


First and foremost, I must give credit to my grandmother, Carol Ann (Atcheson) Eva, without who's plastic bin full of genealogical research, documents, and old photos (in no particular order), this website would not have been possible.
My family research began with opening this plastic bin (The Blue Box). As I sorted through the names, stories and photos, my knowledge of my ancestors grew, but what grew even more was my curiosity of the missing ancestors, the un-researched branches that had names, faces, and stories that had yet to be discovered and put in their rightful places.
In the four or so years since I first opened the Blue Box, I have expanded on my grandmother's information and begun my own research on the missing branches, which included all of my father's side - something I am particularly proud of as I had to begin it on my own, from scratch.
Along the way, I've found many interesting ancestors like Thomas Newcomen who invented the Newcomen Steam Engine that lead to the Industrial Revolution and his great great great great great great great great great great great great great great grandfather, Hugh le Neucomen who hobnobbed during the Crusades with another ancestor of mine, King Richard the Lion-Hearted. More recently, the Hauswirth family, who were some of the first people in my home town, played a very important role in the city's growth and development. My great great great great grandfather John R. Hauswirth was the third to sign an 1875 petition establishing the city I live in, in what was still called the Montana Territory at the time.
I've discovered my deep roots in America, including immigrants to Virginia and the realms of the Pennsylvania Dutch, decades before The Declaration of Independence was even an idea as well as grandparents who only recently came to the U.S. from Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, England, and Ireland.
I've collected many photographs (seven generations, in some cases) and have been amused by the family resemblances passed from parent to child.
I've heard and read stories, both saddening and hilarious, from books, websites, and talks with family members.
It has been quite an experience that has blossomed into a mildly obsessive addiction that both my mother (whom I must also give credit to for her equal effort in this tree) and I have grown to love.
As of now, I am in the process of putting my work so far online, hoping to share it with others while adding to it as I trudge onward in the never ending battle with old census records, birth certificates, Google searches, and the great mystery of Prussian records.
As anyone who's ever done research into their own genealogy knows, some branches are easier to find information on than others. So, if you happen across this site and have any information (names, dates, photographs, stories, or anything at all) you believe pertains to this family and would be willing to share, please feel free to contact me. Also, if you notice any mistakes, as this is a work in progress and I am only human (and sometimes a bit spacey at that), please let me know.
Enjoy the site, and sign the guest book if it strikes your interest.
