Descendants of Jacob Evilsizer & Martha Arnold

Notes for Jacob Evilsizer:
Information on this immigrant ancestor provided by Mary Ellen Martin at the Cass Co, Indiana Historical Society. One similarity in this family, aside from Williams burial record, is that Rev . John Evilsizer, s/o John Evilsizer and Mary Peters, s/o Old "Jakob" also married an Arnold, Mary Polly. Coincidence? This family may have been related back in Germany, but they never left Cass Co, IN. And they did not migrate until between 1860 and 1870.....over 100 years later!

Privileges Revoked By Court
A 26-year-old Burns Harbor man is sitting in Porter County Jail unemployed
after his work release privileges were revoked by Porter Superior Court Judge
Bruce Douglas following an officer's report that the man was found to be so
drunk he could not stand unsupported and
was about to pass out when he was a passenger in a car stopped by the police
officer.
James R. Evilsizer will now have to complete the one-year sentence ordered when
he pleaded guilty last April 25 to third degree burglary of a Jackson Township
home. At the time of the sentencing by Judge Alfred Pivarnik, credit was
allowed for the time Evilsizer had been in jail since his arrest last Jan. 18.
, On Aug. 2, Judge Russell Nixon allowed Evilsizer to be released daily from 4
p.m. to 4 a.m. to be a cab driver, including the direction in his order that
"at all other times, the defendant is to be confined in Porter County Jail."
On Aug. 9, Judge Nixon gave Evilsizer a day's freedom to go to Indianapolis to
get his driver's license, which had been suspended for failure to pay a fine
for a traffic violation. On Sept. 24, Judge Nixon ordered a warrant (or
Evilsizer's arrest, after he failed to return to the jail after his work
release. On Oct. 4, the judge again allowed Evilsizer to be on work release,
noting that
it appeared that his failure to report back to the jail appeared to be due to
an honest misunderstanding. He was allowed to be released daily from 5 a.m. to
9 p.m., and ordered to go directly from jail to and from his work.


45. Garry Lee Evilsizer was born 17 Nov 1949.

Research Notes:
Garry Lee Evilsizer (and six other inmates of the Fort Madison, Iowa prison)
were convicted of contempt of court by the Lee County (in the extreme southeast
corner of the state), Iowa District Court on June 30, 1982, for f ailure to
testify before the Lee County Grand Jury. Evilsizer and the othe rs claimed
fear of reprisals if they testified. The Iowa Court of Appea ls upheld the
convictions (and six month sentences). Criswell, Misner, Gof f, Evilsizer,
Wainwright, Frazer and McGhee v. Hendrickson, 344 N.W.2d 2 55 (Iowa 1983)
11/29/1982 Convicted of 2nd degree murder. 1989 Transferr ed to Oklahoma State

July 10, 1982 Fort Madison, IA
..... prisoners and one former inmate for the Sep 2, 1981 murder of Tyson
during a prison uprising. The inmates found in contempt of court were Thomas
Milner, Jan Criswell, Charles reese, George Goff, Gary Frazier, Gary Evilsizer,
Eugene Wainwright and Glen McGheee.
Mar 23, 1981 Burlington, IA
...Burt testified he saw Gauffer, Frost and inmate Garry Evilsizer go into the
prison laundry room, and that Frost was carrying a knife. Evilsizer was
convicted of second degree murder in Gauffer's death by a Lee County jury in
Fort Madison Feb 12. Former inmate Billy White also contradicted Frost's
testimony, saying Frost admitted to him he killed Gauffer ....An attorney for
state prison inmate Larry Frost asked District Judge William Cahill to declare
a mistrial in Frost's first degree murder trial in the killing of fellow inmate
Theodore Gauffer. ...Gauffer was stabbed to death in the laundry room of the
Iowa State Penetentiary in Fort Madison in 1979. Inmate Garry Evilsizer was
convicted of second-degree murder in the Gauffer killing last month, but no one
else has been charged. The state did not prove premeditation on Frost's part,
so the first degree murder charge was dropped.
Mar 19 1981 Burlington IA
Inmate Gary Evilsizer was convicted last month of second degree murder in the
killing. Frost, 28, of Marshalltown was serving a sentence for robbery and
worked in the laundry room when Gauffer was killed. Earlier this week inmate
Jerry Burt told the jury he saw Frost with a knife in his hand and Evilsizer
enter the launfry room with Gauffer the day he was killed. Evilsizer who is
serving a 25 year term for robbery with aggrevation in Scott County is charged
with the murder.


UPDATE-Garry Evilsizer by Sandra Evilsizer Koscak I have been corresponding
with Garry for about 5 years. He was original ly sent to prison for Burglary.
He was only to serve 2-5 years. While in p rison in Iowa, he was in the "wrong
place "at the "wrong time" and was a
witness to a murder that occurred in the laundry room. He refused to testi fy
for fear of his safety, and in doing so was found guilty of "conspiring" . He
was to serve 20 years additional time and was moved to Oklahoma State
penitentiary for security reasons. He had asked me to find his family roots. In
doing so , I found a completely different line of Evilsizers who immigrated to
Cass Co, Indiana. Ironically, The immigrant was also named Jacob, b c1808 in
Germany and came to America after his son William was born in 1828. Garry's
story has a happy ending insomuch, as he fell in love with his attorney. He was
released from prison in November of 1998 and they moved to somewhere in the
orient where she continues her prac tice, and we hope Garry is living "happily
ever after"

Garry's hobby was orogamy and he made a beautiful rose for me out of paper. It
is such a beautiful thing. I will treasure it forever.
