Charles Evans says he plans to set the tombstones back up in the family plot south of Owensboro and fence it off. He also plans on applying for a historical marker. Evans’ great-great-great grandfather was Capt. Benjamin Field who was commissioned as a captain in the American Revolution by Jefferson.
