Master builder David Evans, Jr. was the son of David Evans, Sr. He first appears working with his father on the Pennsylvania Hospital where he is differentiated in hospital records as junior. The younger Evans appears to have solved the design problem of joining the new wing of the hospital to the earlier plans by Samuel Rhoads. When the younger Evans first appears in Philadelpiha city directories in 1797, he is listed as an architect at 37 Almond Street; thereafter he is listed as a carpenter until he disappears from the directories in 1806. No record of his death has been found.
