EVANS, JOHN S.
EVANS, JOHN S. (?–1841). John S. Evans edited the Galveston Commercial Intelligencer in May or June 1838. The paper was not a success, however, and lasted only a short time. He was also interested in starting another paper, the Galveston National Intelligencer. He wrote Mirabeau B. Lamar on June 29, 1839, asking for an appointment in Washington with the hope that this position would help him in establishing a paper. A newspaper called the National Intelligencer did appear in Galveston in July 1841, but Evans had died on April 22. Before his death he was an assistant editor of the Galveston Morning Herald.
