Alban Taylor Eavenson, born on November 9, 1895, in Philadelphia, was the son of Louis L. Eavenson and Rachel T. Scott. His family had a notable legacy in the business world, with his grandfather, Alban Taylor Eavenson, co-founding the Eavenson & Levering wools scouring business at 301 Jackson Street in Camden. Additionally, his great-grandfather, Jones Eavenson, established the J. Eavenson & Sons Co., a soap products manufacturing company that thrived in Camden for over a century.

In the early 1920s and 1930s, Alban T. Eavenson II ventured into the auto parts industry, founding the Parts Service Company in Camden. According to the 1924 City Directory, the business was located at 32 North 3rd Street. In 1926, he temporarily operated from an old building at 1139 Mt. Ephraim Avenue while constructing a new facility at 1135 Mt. Ephraim Avenue, which was completed and occupied by 1928. However, by 1934, Mr. Eavenson, a resident of Pennsylvania, relocated his business to Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Tragically, Alban T. Eavenson II passed away from a heart attack at Taylor Hospital in Ridley Park, Pennsylvania, on June 9, 1951.
