EVANS, Augnsta Jane, author, born in Columbus, Georgia, S May 1835. When a child she removed with her father to Texas, residing in San Antonio from 1847 till 1849, when the family settled in Mobile, Ala. She was educated almost entirely by her mother. While her parents lived in the frontier town of San Antonio the Mexican war was in progress, and that town was a place of rendezvous for the soldiers sent out to reinforce General Taylor. She afterward entered a school in Mobile, but delicate health compelled her to leave it. During the civil war Miss Evans was an active, zealous sympathizer with the south, and a benefactor to the soldiers that were stationed near her country home. An encampment a short distance from her residence was named in her honor, "Camp Beulah," and there she was a constant visitor among the sick and the dying. Miss Evans married in 1868 L. M. Wilson, of Mobile. Her novels have become widen popular, especially in the southern states. She is the author of "Inez, a Tale of the Alamo," anonymous (New York, 1856); "Beulah," the novel that established her reputation (1859); "Macaria" (Richmond, 1863); " St. Elmo " (New York, 1866); "Vashti" (1869); and "Infelice " (1875).
