Evans, Oliver, 1775-1819 Inventor; born in Newport, Del., in 1775; was of Welsh descent, and was grandson of Evan Evans, D. D., the first Episcopal minister in Philadelphia. Apprenticed to a wheelwright, he early displayed his inventive genius. At the age of twenty-two years he had invented a most useful machine for making card-teeth. In 1786-87 he obtained from the legislatures of Maryland and Pennsylvania the exclusive right to use his improvements in flour-mills. He constructed a sted in America, to which he gave the name of Oracter Amphibolis, arranged for propulsion either on land or water. This is believed to have been the first instance in America of the application of steam-power to the propelling of a land carriage. Evans foresaw and prophesied the near era of railway communication and travel. He proposed the construction of a railway between Philadelphia and New York, but his limited means would not allow him to convince the sceptics by a successful experiment.
