Notes for John Enloes:

Per researcher Jean Inlow of Nevada:

Hendrick’s son John died and “left four orphan children”

(two of unknown gender)

(In documents regarding his unexpected death, NO WILL)

I have been able to find out that two of those children were named Abraham and Henry.

One I have confirmed the descendants of (Abraham)

the other (Henry) I have not.

These unplaced names may be descendants of Henry.

Jean Inlow 2/25/2001 from E. E. Enlow’s book, p. 4: an accounting of John’s debts which were paid by the administrators of his estate, was dated 9/8/1703. Therefore John died before this date.

The following information was obtained by Jean Inlow, thru the Maryland State Archives; On June 2, 1714 Henry Enloes, son of John (deceased) was bound to William Wright. Abraham, son of John (deceased) was bound to Charles Simmons and wife until the age of 21.

Abraham is clearly stated in these records to have been 13 on the previous March 20, thus b: March 20, 1701. Henry’s age was 14 which puts his birth about 1700.

 

John Enloes and Elizabeth ?Enloes had the following children:
14. i.

HENRY3 ENLOES was born in 1700 in Kent County, Maryland. He died in 1794 in Baltimore, Maryland. He married MARY YOUNG. She was born about 1700.

 

15. ii.

ABRAHAM ENLOES was born on 20 Mar 1701. He married ?? ?ENLOES.

 

iii.

?? ENLOES was born before 1703.

 

iv.

?? ENLOES was born before 1703.

 

6.

HENRY2 ENLOES (Hendrick1) was born about 1679 in Saint Pauls Parrish, Baltimore County. He married MARY ?ENLOES.

 

 

Notes for Henry Enloes:

10/20/2006 email from Jean Inlow

June 22, 1728; On this date in Kent County, Maryland, Henry Inloes or Enlowes, Cordwainer [rope maker], executed a Quit Claim Deed as “heir at law of Hendrick Inloes, Decd, of Baltimore County, Maryland” to a parcel of land in Baltimore County known as Sawyer’s Choice – land which was first taken up by Hendricks Inloes, Sawyer, of Baltimore County.

This Quit Claim Deed makes it abundantly clear that Hendrick Inloes had sold this land – Sawyer’s Choice – 200 acres – while he was still living, that is, it was not in Hendrick’s possession at the time of his death or probate of his will.

The Quit Claim Deed was executed in favor of Josiah Middlemore and his wife Frances. Henry Inloes was paid the sum of Nine Pounds Six Shillings and One Penny to execute the Quit Claim Deed. Mary Inloes, wife of Henry Inloes was examined separately and apart from her husband to determine if she freely and voluntarily agreed to this transaction. The Quit Claim Deed was transmitted from the Clerk of Kent County to the clerk of Baltimore County and it was recorded on December 4, 1728.

(essentials extracted from the lengthy quit claim deed)

 

Henry Enloes and Mary ?Enloes had the following child:

Notes for Anthony Enloes:

Reference: CD #208, Vol. 11, No. 4, page 27, dated Nov. 1970 – MD Gen. Society bulletin

mentions date of death, his will named the children but not the wife, mentions possible unborn child

Anthony’s will is copied in E. E. Enlow’s book on page 7, it was dated 9/12/1750 and probated October, 1750.

Anthony Enloes, son of Abraham, had surveyed for himself, May 22, 1714, “Enloes Rest”. This was patented in

1717.

Charles the Second and To All persons Know Yee that for and in consideration that Anthony Enloe of Baltimore

County in our said Province of Maryland hath due unto him within our said Province the quantity of sixty two

acres of land, -. Wee doe therefore grant unto Anthony Enloe all that Tract of Land Called Enloes Rest lyeing – on

the north side of Middle River Beginning at a bounded red oak standing at the head of a small cove -. – Given

under our Greater Seal at Arms this twenty fifth day of April one thousand seven hundred and seventeen, Witness

our Trusty and well beloved John Hart Esq. Govenour in Chiefe and Keeper of our said Greater Seal at Arms in

our said Province of Maryland.

In 1739 there was: resurveyed for him “Dutch Neck” and about ninety acres added thereto. The whole he gave

the name of “Anthony’s Delight”. His last acquirement of land was in 1748. He is met up till the middle of the

century in other documents. He is found as a surety on a bond in 1723, again in 1743. This same year, 1743, he

and his wife Elinor were witnesses to the will of one William Galloway. This Elinor is supposed to have been the

daughter of Thomas Cheney, one of the Anne Arundel Gentry. Eleanor Cheney was baptized October 18, 1711;

she is mentioned as Elinor Enloes in the will of Thomas Cheney in 1737. Anthony’s will was probated October

10, 1750. Eleanor was appointed executrix giving bond for 500 pounds sterling. During 1751 and 1752 she

submitted several accounts. On January 14, 1752, she married William Grover and the accounts thereafter are

issued in the names of both. The estate was distributed between the widow and the three children, Abraham,

Ellinor and Elizabeth.

——————————————————————————–

1. Abraham ENLOW (prob. son of Abraham ENLOW and Mary DEASON) was born about 1729 based on the

following information (as transcribed in The Descendants of Thomas Pollack):

He served as a private under Capt. David English in 1778 (Draper Manuscript); “he was exempted from future

duty being fifty years of age Oct. 8, 1779 [Ohio Co., VA Courts-Martial].” The citations given are “The Enlow

Family” and “Enlow, Revised” by Raymond Bell published in KEYHOLE Oct. 1983 and Oct. 1989, respectively.

I have not seen the articles or the primary sources. I have been informed that DAR records show his birth year as

1729. That year is plausible considering that: (1) church records show Anthony, son of Abraham and Mary, as

born in August 1731; and (2) he married Nov. 28, 1754 at which time he would have been about age 25.

2. Abraham INLOES (son of Anthony and Eleanor) was born about 1734. “In memory of Abraham INLOES, who

departed this life November 20, 1790, aged 56 years” (Memoirs of the Dead, and Tomb’s Remembrancer, pub.

1806, p. 70). The remains of the deceased were deposited in a Methodist burying ground. (In the back of the

book, perhaps appended in the 1989 reprint, is a map of Baltimore City wherein the only Methodist Church listed

is Dallas Street Methodist Episcopal located in Fells Point. At the time of Abraham’s death, Dallas St. was known

as Strawberry Alley, and the site was on that alley at Fleet St.) He may have been the Abraham INLOES who

gave his age as 46 in connection with a deposition made in Baltimore Co. in 1782 (Maryland Deponents 1634-

1799, citing Chancery Court: Chancery Record, Liber 14, folio 12).

3. Anthony ENLOES (son of Abraham of Hendricks/Henry) was born about 1698. In connection with a

deposition of April 6, 1744, Anthony ENLOWES gave his age as 46 years (Baltimore County, Maryland Deed

Records, Vol. One, by John Davis, 1996, p. 185).

“Enloes Rest” was surveyed for him on 22 May 1714 (Rent Rolls, probably Series C, available on microfilm at

Md. Hist. Soc., Baltimore City), at which time he probably was at least age 16. (One or two of the Enloes books

stated that Anthony was born before 1700.) Furthermore, a birth year of about 1698 is consistent with his father’s

will, wherein Anthony was listed first and presumably was the first born son (and first born child, in my opinion).

I suspect that all the children were named in age order in the will, except possibly Margaret because many of the wills of that time named the sons first, and then the daughters.

Although this message is not in the nature of a query, I wanted to share the information with Enloe/Enlow/Enlows descendants. My primary interest is Elizabeth, wife of Abraham Enloes (born 1707) and John Ensor, and whether she accompanied her son Wm. and brother Guilford to Hyde Precinct, Bath Co., NC by 1731.

 

Anthony Enloes and Eleanor Cheney had the following children:
18. i.

ABRAHAM4 INLOES was born about 1734 in Baltimore County, Maryland. He died on 20 Nov 1790 in Fells Point, Baltimore County, Maryland. He married ELIZABETH ?ENLOES. She died after 1820 in Maryland.

 

19. ii.

ELEANOR ENLOES was born about 1736 in Baltimore, Maryland. She died on 18 Jul 1781 in Baltimore, Maryland. She married James League, son of John League and Mary Jean Noe on 02 May 1759 in St. John’s Church Baltimore, MD. He was born on 14 Feb 1732 in Baltimore, Maryland. He died on 21 Mar 1781 in Baltimore, Maryland.

 

iii.

ELIZABETH ENLOES.

 

9.

WILLIAM3 ENLOES (Abraham2, Hendrick1) was born between 1706-1707. He died before 1738. He married Mary Silverthorn, daughter of Guilford Silverthorn and Jean Jacob about 1721. She was born about 1700 in Hyde County, North Carolina. She died about 1778 in Hyde County, North Carolina.

 

 

Notes for William Enloes:

It will be remembered that Abraham II, son of Hendrick, had three sons besides Anthony; one of these was

William. He purchased land in Carolina in 1731.

Gilbert Silverthorne

September 25th, 1731 Beaufort & prect.

Hyde September Court 1731

Presumably William Inloe had been in Carolina for a while preceding this for the document speaks of “said Inloe

now present dwelling house”. He disposed in 1742 of the 50 acre tract on Middle River in Maryland, left him by

his father, to William Right (apparently the same William Wright mentioned in the Maryland documents).

NORTH CAROLINA, BEAUFORT COUNTY

TO ALL TO WHOM THESE presents come I William Inlose of the County of Hyde in the province: Yeoman

Send Greetings.

KNOW YE that I the said William Inlose for & in consideration of the sum of sixty pounds lawful Bills of North Carolina to me in hand paid, before the ensealing & delivery of these presents by William Right of Baltimore County in the province of Maryland Gent: – do fully, freely & absolutely give, grant, bargain, sell, alien, enforced, convey & confirm unto the said William Right his heirs and assigns a tract or pacel of land, lying in Baltimore County upon the middle River and — Creek, in the neck, between the afsd River & Creek, in the afsd province of Maryland

IN WITNESS WHEREOF I have hereunto set my hand & affixed my seal this first day of September anno Dom., 1742.

Why did William Inloes leave Maryland? The most likely explanation is that he sought new land for his tobacco raising. Many in Maryland and Virginia were finding their soils depleted, themselves ruined because tobacco was being produced more cheaply elsewhere and brought in. Furthermore Carolina was the only province in English America where cattle could be wintered without expense or labor.

William’s land purchase in Carolina was witnessed by Gilbert Silverthorne.

We gather from the will of Gilford Silverthorne, February 5, 1737, taken from the Secretary of States Office, Raleigh (all wills being recorded there until 1760) that William married his daughter. Gilford Silverthorne speaks of his son John, his grandson Abraham Enlows, his granddaughter Elizabeth Enlows, his daughter Mary, his son Sawastin, his wife Jean. William had other children than Abraham and Elizabeth, one being named Sebastin.

Abraham Enlow purchased August 28, 1750, for twenty five pounds one hundred acres “on the south side of Tar River” from Joana Thomas of Boston, “widow and sole executrix of the last will and testament of John Raulins, decd., late of Beaufort County in North Carolina”. This deed was registered in Beaufort County at the September Court, 1754. John Hardie “of the County of Beaufort & Province aforesaid” for seventy five pounds sold Abraham Enlo “of the County and province aforesaid” on March 13, 1758, a parcel of land and plantation “on the So Side of Pamptico River joining on Enloes beginning at a hickory on the river bank & down the river – being part of a tract of land taken up by John Hardie containing 640 acres as by patent dated 21 Mar. 1742. by estimation 220 acres more or less” .

If we interpret these land holdings properly, then William the father had his plantation in Hyde County north of Pamlico River, east of Pungo, and Abraham, the son, his on the south side of Pamlico River, nearer to New Bern.

Abraham’s will, executed September 2, 1774, and proved in Court in June, 1775, bequeathed to his brothers William and Sebastin each one shilling sterling; to Zelpha Enloes “one Cow and Calf One Ewe and Lamb to be delivered to her as soon as this Will is in force Likewise one Feather Bed and Furniture after her Mothers death it being the same I lend to her Mother Likewise I give unto her the first child my wench Jin doth have and to be delivered her at eighteen months old”-, to Elizabeth Gladding, daughter of Ann Gladding, one plantation of 160 acres, “my Negro Wench to her and her heirs and assigns after the death of my wife Mary and until the said wench Jin to be hired out according to law and the profits arising there from to be equally divided between my wife, Elizabeth Gladding and Ann Gladding until Ann Gladding marry and after between the said Mary and Elizabeth Likewise I give unto the afsd. Elizabeth six new Pewter Plates and One Pewter Dish Supe, One large Iron Pot Hooks and Iron Tramel, one Feather Bed and Furniture One twelve Bottle Case and Bottles, one chest nine Delph Plates and one Delph Dish one Silver Spoon one Blew Milk Pot, one Third part of my Shu Cattle and Sheep (marked Crap Slip and over bit the left ear)  and my Mare”; to his wife Mary and Ann Gladding the remainder of the estate. His gun, one horse, cattle, sheep and hogs, sufficient to pay his debts, were to be sold.

John Silverthorne was executor. One of the witnesses was Elijah Fortescue.

Mary Inloes in her own will, made about 1778, gave Elizabeth Gladding “one Hand Mill, one Linning Wheel, two Puter Dishes, two Puter Basins, four Puter Plates one Box Iron to all my Cattle to all my Hogs Chests to one Iron Pot and Pot Hooks” and “all the remainder of my living that I have not already given both within doors and without”. She gave Ann Fortescue and Zelpher Walls each one Shilling.

Apparently, therefore, Ann was a daughter of Abraham and Mary Enloes, marrying first a Gladding, and secondly after Abraham’s death, a Fortescue. Elizabeth must have been the unmarried grand-daughter. Zelpha, the other daughter, married a Walls. There is no mention of male issue.

Abraham Enloes was the son of Abraham Enloes and Elizabeth. He was a grandson of Hendrick and Christiana

Enloes. His mother married second John Ensor ca. 1710, as her husband had died in 1709 and she had a son, John

Ensor Jr. in 1711.

In 1733, Abraham Enloes leased Lot #50 on Lord Baltimore’s Gunpowder Manor which consisted of 100 acres

and may have been called at that time “Enloe’s Last Shift.”

In 1743, he leased another 41 acres on the Gunpowder Manor known at the time as “Abraham’s Desire.”

In the Maryland resurvey of the manor, these two leases were known as “Enloe’s Last Shift” (1785). Both leases

were made for the lifetime of his wife, Mary, age 55 (in 1767) and son, Benjamin Enloes, age 28 (in 1767)

although the second lease showed Mary’s age as 56 (in 1767).

Benjamin was actually born 19 Jan. 1738/39 so the 1767 survey was correct on his age.

Abraham Enloes died intestate between July and August of 1758. His wife Mary Deason Enloes administered the

estate per Baltimore County Administration Accounts Liber 6, f. 244.

The account states that the deceased left ten children. Except for four of these children, whose births were recorded in St. John’s & St. George’s Parish, the “ten” children have had to be guessed at from other records.

The first child of Abraham Enloes and Mary, according to the church records was Anthony, born in 1731.

However, this son may have died in infancy since Benjamin Enloes is shown as Abraham’s heir in his lease of Lot #50 of the Gunpowder Manor in 1733.

(Note: Benjamin, born in 1738/39, was probably added to the lease at a later date since he was not alive when his father first leased the property in 1733.]

Thomas Enloes is shown on most lists of genealogists as a son of Abraham with the speculation he was born ca.

1729. This date, of course, could mean he was born before the marriage of Abraham and Mary.

Sometime after her husband’s death in 1758, Mary Enloes probably joined her Deason relatives in York County, South Carolina. She left a will there and one source said she died in 1774 while another said, 1789. She only named directly one child in her will as a daughter: Christen, or Christiana.

The children of Abraham Enloes and Mary Deason accepted thus far:

1)Thomas Enloes (b. ca. 1729) m. Sarah James (b. 10 Feb. 1733, daughter of William) 2 June 1754.

2)Anthony Enloes b. August, 173 1. No other info.

3)Avarilla Enloes b. 1734 m. Robert Garner 3 May 1757 (Note: the record shows Robert Gardener).

4)Benjamin Enloes b. 19 Jan. 1738/39 d. prob. SC. No other info.

5)Sarah Enloes b. 16 Feb. 1740.

6)Enoch Enloes b. ca. 1741 d. 1799 York Co. SC m. 1) Sprusebanks; 2) Jane McCord.

7)Isaac Enloes b. 13 Feb. 1745 (Enloes Bible) d. 1819 York Co. SC, m. Violet Porter.

8)Deason Enloes. No other info.

9) Christen Enloes (in mother’s will).

10)Potter Enloes. No other info.

11)John Enloes. No other info.

[Note by RBE: this is one too many children; either Potter or John must have been the child of some other parents.]

The final account of Abraham Enloes’ estate in 1758 in Baltimore Co. not only shows his wife, Mary Deason Enloes as his administratrix but shows the appraisers of the estate to be William Ensor and James Elliott.

James Elliott was the father of Jemima and Mary Elliott who married respectively Abraham Enloes and Henry Enloes, supposed sons of Abraham Enloes and Mary Deason Enloes.

(note by RBE – this assumption was not correct, this Abraham and Henry were actually sons of John Enloes, who also left two unnamed orphans at his death) The fact that James Elliott appraised the estate of Abraham Enloes adds a bit of support to the supposition that James Elliott was the father of Jemima and Mary Elliott.

Also of interest is that William Ensor Sr. was security for William Ensor Jr. and Charles Deason as shown on the Baltimore Co. Tax List of 1773 for Gunpowder Upper Hundred.

The only Deasons in Baltimore Co. as late as 1773 seem to be Enoch Deason and this Charles Deason.

Mary Deason Enloes, as Mary Enlow, left a will in York Co. SC which, according to Col. Thomas A. Enloe (now deceased), was probated Feb. 1789. South Carolina Wills. an index compiled by Martha Lou Houston, (originally published in 1939), reprinted by Genealogical Publishing Co. Baltimore, 1970, shows the will may be found as part of the collections of the University of South Carolina Library, Columbia, SC (1939).

The reference is given as Vol. 1, date 1770-1815, p. 3. Her will referred to a daughter, Christen, or Christiana, and “to burial at the discretion of my children.”

 

The Will of Mary (Deason) Enloe, dated 8/28/1774

(source is Will Book A – 1786 – 1799; located at hr York County Courthouse, York, SC and copied November

1960)

In the name God, Amen. The 28th day of August, 1774, I , widow Enloe of the County Craven and Province of

South Carolina, being very sick and weak in body but of perfect mind and memory thanks to be given to God

therefore, calling to the mind the Mortality of my body and knowing that it is appointed for all men once to die,

Do make and ordain this my last will and testament; that is principally and first of all, I give and recommend my

Soul into the hands of the Almighty God that gave it, and my body I recommend to the earth to be buried in

decent Christian burial at the discretion of my children and friends, nothing but at the general Resurrection I shall

receive the same again by the mighty power of God, and as touching such Worldly Estate where it hath pleased

God to clefs me with, I give, Demise, and Dispose of the same in the following manner and form.

I give and bequeath to my younger daughter, Christian Enloe, all and what I have at my death; I do hereby

disannul all other wills. In where I have set my hand and seal the day and year above written.

Notes for Abraham Enlow:

DOB- marriage & DOD are from 5/2/2001 letter from Mrs. Slatterly

Detail on children from Col. Thomas A. Enloe – chart F

Per Jean Inlow, this Abraham was really the son of Henry Enloe of Kent County, Maryland, and the grandson of

John Enloe who died and left 4 orphans. That would make Hendricks Enloes his gg-grandfather.

The Abraham that married Jemima Elliott was born in 1726, not 1701. this is two different Abrahams.

John that died and left 4 orphan children, had two sons, one by the name of Henry b: 1700 and one by the name

Abraham b: 1701.

Henry b: 1700 had a son named Abraham b: 1726 that married Jemima Elliott.

I realize that people do show an Abraham as the son of Abraham and Mary Deason. This is not correct.

Since you have the books by Col. Thomas and E. E. Enlow, you should be able to see that they either did not

show an Abraham as a child, or questioned it.

Since their research was done, further evidence has been found that Abraham and Mary Deason did not have a

son named Abraham or Henry.

Also it is in church records the “Henry of Kent” b: 1700 had a son named Abraham born in 1726 and Abraham’s

marriage is shown in the works of Fred Inlow, marrying Jemima Elliott.

There are so many Abraham’s and Henry’s that it does get confusing. I hope this helps you. Let me know.

History of Washington County, Pennsylvania

 

Early Settlements.—Abraham Enlow was among the first of the settlers in what is now East Finley township. There is little doubt that he was here as early as 1775. He settled on Wheeling Creek, where he built a block-house for the protection of himself and family from the Indians. His first land purchase was of a tract containing four hundred acres, called “Big Flat,” situated on the waters of Big Wheeling Creek, which was granted to him Feb. 21, 1788, and surveyed March 30th following. On March 26, 1788, “Sugar Stick Run,” a tract of three hundred and ninety-one acres, was warranted to him, and surveyed April 26th of the same year. Again, in 1790, he received a warrant for one hundred acres of land, which was not surveyed until June 9, 1799. Abraham Enlow’s sons were five, —Elliott, Luke, Henry, William, and Michael. His daughters, four in number, were Mrs. Thomas Hill, Mrs. James St. Clair, Mrs. Wolf, and Mrs. Jeremiah Post. Michael Enlow married and emigrated to Monroe County, Ohio; Elliott Enlow married a Miss Atchison, and they had a large family of children. Their sons were three, —Henry, John, and Gideon.

Luke, second son of Abraham Enlow, married and died near where he was born, leaving a large family, six sons and three daughters. All except Ruth, who married John Montgomery, emigrated to Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. William Enlow, another of Abraham’s sons, married a Miss Wolf, who died in this township a quarter of a century ago. They had four children, —Abraham, Elliott, Luke, and Peter. Abraham, Jr., and Peter emigrated to Ohio, and Luke Enlow, Jr., died in Washington County. Of this branch of the Enlow family, Elliott, Jr., is the only one now living. He still owns a part of the old homestead, and another portion is the property of William McCleary.

Henry Enlow was one of Abraham Enlow’s sons, and may be termed one of the original settlers, as he was one of the oldest children. He married a Miss Atchison. Of his numerous family the sons all emigrated to Ohio, and the daughters married and died in Washington County. From Ruth Enlow, daughter of Luke, and granddaughter of old Abraham Enlow, have sprung a numerous family. She married Hugh Montgomery, son of James Montgomery, who, Oct. 21, 1784, warranted the tract of land called “Tragical,” containing four hundred acres, situated on the Robinson Fork of Wheeling Creek, and which was surveyed to him Dec. 30, 1784. Hugh and Ruth Montgomery had eleven children. James, the eldest, went to Ohio; John settled in East Finley township and died here; William resides in Washington borough, where he has for several years been a justice of the peace, and is at present proprietor of a hardware-store; Jesse died in this county; Alexander resides in this township on the old Montgomery homestead; and Cyrus lives on an adjoining farm. The daughter, Susan Montgomery, married John Thornberry; Annie was the wife of William A. Sprowls; Rebecca became Mrs. Martin Post; Mary married Simeon Sprowls; and Phebe, who married Henry Martin, resides in Ohio.

 

Notes for Jemima Elliot:

The Elliot family were early settlers living on leased property in “Gunpowder Manor” , Maryland.

Notes for Elizabeth ?Enloes:

This Abraham we shall call Abraham of Fell’s Point from Fell’s Point in Baltimore to which he moved in 1768. From him stems the later Inloes living in the Maryland metropolis. Among these, the most distinguished was Dr.

Henry Augustus Inloes, a grandson, 1811-1874. The will of this fourth Abraham, signed November 18, and probated December 28, 1790, is of special interest. First, it reveals him as an owner of books; secondly, it shows that he was the first of the Maryland Enloes to be a slave owner; thirdly, it demonstrates that he did not believe, at least as he approached death, in bondage but wished to free his slaves; fourthly, it lists his ten children; fifthly, it shows that he definitely adopted the spelling Inloes rather than Enloes. This Abraham Inloes was born in Maryland in 1734 and died December 28, 1790. Abraham’s will is listed in E.E. Enlow’s book on page 10. This will names his wife and 10 children, the text follows:

I Abraham Inloes of Baltimore County and State of Maryland being sick and weak in body but of sound mind, memory and understanding, considering the certainty of death and the uncertainty of the time there fore and being

desirous to settle my wordly affairs and thereby be the better prepared to leave this world when it shall please God to call hence, do make my last will and Testament in manner following: that is to say first and Principally I commit my soul Into the hands of Almighty God and my body to the Earth to be decently buried at the discretion of my Executrix and Executor hereinafter named. It is my will and desire that all my Just debts and funeral expenses be first paid.

Whereas my daughter, Elizabeth Leange has had already that part of my Estate, which I designed to give her not withstanding, it is my will and desire that in case she should hereafter become a widow, that my Executrix and

Executor pay unto her during her widowhood, Yearly and every year, the sum of three pounds current money and I hereby charge my real and personal Estate with the payments thereof. I give and bequeath unto my son Joshua my watch and all my Books that I shall have at my decease. Whereas my son in law Thomas Harrison, has built a house on a Lot of Ground on Fellspoint belonging to me, and whereas I have never made him a title thereto, my will and desire is that my Executrix and Executor do in a

reasonable time after my decease on the request of my son in-law afsign over unto him, his heirs, executors, Administrators or Afaigna all my right and title claim end Interest to thirty feet of Ground on which the house

aforesaid stand on, fronting on Ann Street, running back half to Arquile Alley. The said Harrison or his afaigna paying a proportionate part of the original rent reserved on the said Lott of Ground be hereafter appraised and the

value thereof to go in discharge of so much of what I shall give unto my daughter, his wife, out of my Estate. Item- I give and bequeath unto my Loving Wife all my Negroes to wit: Negro Joshua – Sarah – Thomas – and Ann with their Increase to her, her heirs, and afeigna forever as it was my

Intention to have Manumitted my Negroes aforesaid, but by my present Indisposition hinders the same, I have given then to my wife to do with as she pleases. Yet having Confidence in her that she will be a sufficient deed of Manumifsion make them free after my decease and as I look upon them as no part of my Estate, my will and desire is that if any of my children hereinafter named should or shall hereafter lay any claim to them or any part of their appraisement by suit or other ways disturb my wife or my executor or the slaves themselves in claiming them or any of them or any part of them or any of them. Then it is my will that such child or children shall take no part

of my Estate hereinafter bequeathed unto them and that their part, his or her part, so offending shall be divided amoungst my other children who obey and keep to this my Will. Item – I give and bequeath unto my Loving Wife the One third part of my personal Estate. Item – I give and bequeath unto my ten children to wit: Anthony – Abraham – Elizabeth – Joshua – James – John –

Eleanor – Temperance -William – Margaret , to be equally divided amoungst them share and share alike. I lastly constitute and appoint my loving wife Elizabeth and my son Joshua, Executrix and Executor of this my

Last Will and Testament revoking all former will or wills by me made.

2. Abraham INLOES (son of Anthony and Eleanor) was born about 1734.

“In memory of Abraham INLOES, who departed this life November 20, 1790, aged 56 years”

(Memoirs of the Dead, and Tomb’s Remembrancer, pub. 1806, p. 70).

The remains of the deceased were deposited in a Methodist burying ground.

(In the back of the book, perhaps appended in the 1989 reprint, is a map of Baltimore City wherein the only

Methodist Church listed is Dallas Street Methodist Episcopal located in Fells Point. At the time of Abraham’s

death, Dallas St. was known as Strawberry Alley, and the site was on that alley at Fleet St.)

He may have been the Abraham INLOES who gave his age as 46 in connection with a deposition made in

Baltimore Co. in 1782 (Maryland Deponents 1634-1799, citing Chancery Court: Chancery Record, Liber 14,

folio 12).

Notes for William Enloes:

Reference; In Old Kentucky – web site

A deed recorded in Craven County in part reads:

This indenture made this fourth day of May 1792 between Anthony Inloe and William Ross of Craven County and in the Town of Newbern Witnesseth, that the said Anthony Inloe for and in consideration of the sum of two Hundred pounds currency – both given granted bargained, sell and deliver unto him the said William Ross,-two lots or parcels of land situated lying and being in the town of Newbern, and are known and distinguished in the plan of said town by lots No. 39 and 40-together with the front belonging to the same which lots are bounded South by the rivers Easterly by German Street Northwardly by lot No. 355 and westerly by lot No 41 -. Anthony Inloes (Seal)

June 25, 1785, Antoni Intose or Antony Instoe (it is spelled both ways in the same document) married Rhody Cheyney.

June 10, 1787, Antony or Anthony Inloes married Elizabeth Cheney.

June 10, 1789, Abraham Inloes married Ann Cheney.

Evidently the Inloe men of Craven County went in for June weddings and for women of the same family. It will be remembered that Anthony, son of Abraham, son of Hendrick, in Maryland married Elinor Cheney.

December 24, 1798, in Craven County Nancy Inlow married John Carter. Since these documents are all similar we shall reproduce only one.

State of North Carolina, Craven County.

Know all men by these presents, That we, Abraham Inloes Anthony Inloes are held and firmly bound unto his Excellency Saml. Johnston, Esquire, Captain-General and Commander-in-Chief in and over said State, in the sum of 500 pounds current money; to be paid to the said Governor, his successors and assigns. To the which payment, well and truly to be made, we bind ourselves, our heirs, executors and administrators jointly and severally, firmly by these presents. Sealed with our seals and dated this 10 day of June A. D. 1789. The condition of the above obligation is such, That whereas, the abount bounden Abraham Inloes hath made application for a license for Marriage intended to be had and solemnized between him and Ann Cheney of the County aforesaid, Now therefore in case it shall appear at any time hereafter, that there is any lawful cause to obstruct the said Marriage, then -the above obligation to be void, otherwise to remain in full force and virtu Signed and Delivered in presence of Abraham Inloes (Seal) Who were this Anthony, this Abraham, this Nancy? We do not know, but suggest that they were two brothers and a sister belonging to the fifth generation of Enloes – Inloes. Their location would indicate that they were derived from the branch of the family that settled in Hyde and Beaufort counties. Since of the known sons of William Inloes the older, Abraham has already been disposed of, and Sevastin, as we shall see later, removed to Georgia, it would seem most likely that these three were children of William the younger, nephews and niece of Abraham of Beaufort County.

 

When they lived in New Bern the greatest days of the city had passed. For a while during the Revolution Tryon’s palace remained closed but afterwards it was used as a school. In the cellar was stored a quantity of wood and hay. Here one day came a negro woman hunting eggs, carrying a pine torch. All except one wing of the magnificent structure went up in flames.

 

William Enloes and ?? ?Enloes had the following children:
i.

ANTHONY5 ENLOES was born about 1760. He married (1) RHODY CHEYNEY on 10 Jun 1787 in Craven County, North Carolina. He married (2) ELIZABETH CHENEY on 10 Jun 1789.

 

ii.

ABRAHAM ENLOES was born about 1760. He died before 1798. He married Ann Cheney on 10 Jun 1789 in Craven County, North Carolina.

 

iii.

NANCY ENLOES was born about 1770. She married John Carter on 24 Dec 1798 in Craven County, North Carolina.

 

21.

ABRAHAM4 ENLOES (William3, Abraham2, Hendrick1) was born before 1737. He died before Jun 1775 in Hyde County, North Carolina. He married MARY ?ENLOES.

 

 

Notes for Abraham Enloes:

Abraham Enlow purchased August 28, 1750, for twenty five pounds one hundred acres “on the south side of Tar River” from Joana Thomas of Boston, “widow and sole executrix of the last will and testament of John Raulins, decd., late of Beaufort County in North Carolina”. This deed was registered in Beaufort County at the September Court, 1754. John Hardie “of the County of Beaufort & Province aforesaid” for seventy five pounds sold Abraham Enlo “of the County and province aforesaid” on March 13, 1758, a parcel of land and plantation “on the So Side of Pamptico River joining on Enloes beginning at a hickory on the river bank & down the river – being part of a tract of land taken up by John Hardie containing 640 acres as by patent dated 21 Mar. 1742. by estimation 220 acres more or less”

.

If we interpret these land holdings properly, then William the father had his plantation in Hyde County north of Pamlico River, east of Pungo, and Abraham, the son, his on the south side of Pamlico River, nearer to New Bern. Abraham’s will, executed September 2, 1774, and proved in Court in June, 1775, bequeathed to his brothers William and Sebastin each one shilling sterling; to Zelpha Enloes “one Cow and Calf One Ewe and Lamb to be delivered to her as soon as this Will is in force Likewise one Feather Bed and Furniture after her Mothers death it being the same I lend to her Mother Likewise I give unto her the first child my wench Jin doth have and to be delivered her at eighteen months old”-, to Elizabeth Gladding, daughter of Ann Gladding, one plantation of 160 acres, “my Negro Wench to her and her heirs and assigns after the death of my wife Mary and until the said wench Jin to be hired out according to law and the profits arising there from to be equally divided between my wife, Elizabeth Gladding and Ann Gladding until Ann Gladding marry and after between the said Mary and Elizabeth Likewise I give unto the afsd. Elizabeth six new Pewter Plates and One Pewter Dish Supe, One large Iron Pot Hooks and Iron Tramel, one Feather Bed and Furniture One twelve Bottle Case and Bottles, one chest nine Delph Plates and one Delph Dish one Silver Spoon one Blew Milk Pot, one Third part of my Shu Cattle and Sheep (marked Crap Slip and over bit the left ear) and my Mare”; to his wife Mary and Ann Gladding the remainder of the estate. His gun, one horse, cattle, sheep and hogs, sufficient to pay his debts, were to be sold.

John Silverthorne was executor. One of the witnesses was Elijah Fortescue.

Mary Inloes in her own will, made about 1778, gave Elizabeth Gladding “one Hand Mill, one Linning Wheel, two Puter Dishes, two Puter Basins, four Puter Plates one Box Iron to all my Cattle to all my Hogs Chests to one Iron Pot and Pot Hooks” and “all the remainder of my living that I have not already given both within doors and without”. She gave Ann Fortescue and Zelpher Walls each one Shilling. Apparently, therefore, Ann was a daughter of Abraham and Mary Enloes, marrying first a Gladding, and secondly after Abraham’s death, a Fortescue. Elizabeth must have been the unmarried grand-daughter. Zelpha, the other daughter, married a Walls. There is no mention of male issue.

Here’s all I know to date concerning the Robert Gardner that I posted previously. I am unsure as to how it may connect with you. An interesting note: Mary Deason and Abraham Enloes also had a daughter named Sarah, of whom I am still attempting to research with regard to her marriage/s. I mention this only in response to your Robert Gardner’s link to Sally, surname unknown.

Abarillo Enloes was born in Baltimore County, Maryland on May 5, 1735 and she died in 1792 in York County, South Carolina at 57 years of age. { St. John Parish records, Baltimore County, Maryland give her birth year as 1734. (Index to Register of St. John’s Parish 1696-1788, Hall of Records, #1063.52, 75 R.); St. John’s and St. George’s Parish Registers, Baltimore and Harford Counties, 1696-1851, Henry C. Peden, Jr., 1987, Family Line Publication, Silver Spring, Maryland, record page 100.} She was the daughter of Abraham Enloes and Mary Deason and sister of Benjamin Enlow. Her name has been spelled in a variety of ways including Ambrello and Ambrella. She married Robert Gardener on May 3, 1757 in Maryland. {Spelled as Avarilla; Index to Register of St. John’s Parish 1696-1788, Hall of Records, #1063.52, 49; Maryland Marriages 1634-1777, compiled by Robert Barnes, Genealogical Publishing Company, Incorporated, Baltimore, Maryland, 1978, page 67; St. John’s and St. George’s Parish Registers, Baltimore and Harford Counties, 1696-1851, Henry C. Peden, Jr., 1987, Family Line Publication, Silver Spring, Maryland, record page 215.}

On July 3, 1764, Benjamin Enlow petitioned for 300 acres on the waters of Lynches Creek. It is unknown as to whether he received this land, as Benjamin’s brother-in-law, Robert Gardner, also applied for the same tract. { Petitions for Land From the South Carolina Council Journals, volume V: 1757-1765, Brent H. Holcomb, SCMAR, Columbia, South Carolina, © 1998, page 176, meeting of Tuesday PM 3 July 1764.}

Beginning in 1775, land was granted to persons coming into the province of South Carolina on a ‘headright’ of 100 acres for the head of household and another 50 acres for each additional person in the household.

On July 12, 1766, Benjamin Enlow proved a land deed for 150 acres of land in Craven County on Faulkenborough’s branch on behalf of Robert Garner, who may have been Robert Gardner, his brother-inlaw.

Benjamin Deason was witness. { Lancaster County, South Carolina Deed Abstracts 1787-1811, Brent H. Holcomb, Southern Historical Press, Easley, South Carolina, 1981, page 34: “Pp. 144-145: 5 & 6 Aug 1765, William Sheperd of Craven County, planter, and wife Jemimah, to Robert Garner of same, planter (lease s5, releas £ 200)… 150 A granted to sd Sheperd 7 May 1762 ib Falkenborough’s branch… William Sheperd (W), Jemimah Shepard (X), Wit: Benjamin Deason (X), Benjamin Enlow (B).

Notes for Enoch Enloe:

There is little concrete evidence to prove Enoch was the father of Abraham Enloe of Rutherford Co., NC – however after finding marriage records and deed transfers, it seems obvious that Anthony Enloe was the 1st to

migrate to Rutherford Co., and soon five more brothers & sisters plus Enoch followed. One of these was his son Abraham.

Upon further reading of Col. Thomas Enloe’s notes, the following was extracted:

“Research since 1947 strongly suggests that when Enoch Enloe of York Co., SC married the 2nd time, his first

group of children were in their older teens and upwards. Resenting a new wife of their own approximate age, the

older children moved over into the adjacent Rutherford Co., NC.

They were Agnes, Christan(f), Sarah, Ezekial, David, Anthony, and Abraham.”

(Note by RBE: this would be Abraham Enloe III )

per Col. T. A. Enloe

“the Agnes Inlow as shown in the 1790 NC census is believed to be the older sister of Abraham Enloe(III) of

western NC, along with brothers and sisters, Agnes is shown as the head of household.

per Col. T.A. Enloe –

“The first documentary evidence of Enoch in SC is in 1783, when he witnessed Isaac’s claim for Revolutionary

War Service. Later, on September 11, 1784, Enoch himself was paid 9 Pounds Sterling for Revolutionary War

Service. In 1790, Enoch appears in the 1790 SC census, as Enoch Enlow of Camden District, York County.

(note by RBE – this payment of 9 pounds sterling has been accepted by the DAR as proof of Enoch’s service)

per Col. T. A. Enloe

“On May 11, 1873, Isaac Enloe was paid 181 Pounds Sterling for service in the Revolutionary War, and for the

loss of a horse, saddle, and rifle gun; in an engagement called General Sumpter’s Chace, in the year 1780.

This claim incidentally was witnessed by Enoch Enloe, and a Nathaniel Porter.

Two pieces of documentary material serve to contradict the wide spread tradition among the Enloe people that

Isaac and Enoch were school teachers: Isaac could not write his own name inasmuch as his claim for

Revolutionary service and his will were both signed by by showing his mark or making an X as referred to today.

All of my data indicates Isaac was a farmer, and his will indicates he must have been a good one.”

Union County Deed Book B, 20 Feb 1788

Samuel Porter of Mecklenburg Co. NC to Wm Porter of York Co, land where Matthew Porter formly lived.

Witnessed by Robert Kennedy, Abraham Enloe, William Wallace, all of York County

(they were witnesses to the first transaction as Samuel Porter died prior to Feb 1786 and had to reafirm this)

Robert Kennedy and William Wallace were son-in-laws of Samuel [Porter].

This is either Abraham of Rutherford Co, NC or an unknown Abraham.

The only thing this now throws into question is Abrahams birthdate; even then you had to be of age to witness or

buy land, which would make Abraham born more like 1764 than 1770.

Benjamin, 1787, 1794 appointed constable, 1796

Enoch Enloe and wife vs James Miller 6 Feb 1795

(dismissed because plantiff died)

This last entry would establish Enoch’s date of death to be before Feb 6, 1795. This is possible as his two youngest sons were born before that date.

——————————————————————————–

Charlotte: I will have to pull out my records on the maps I have obtained regarding the Enloe’s in England. They

are in storage at present, since I recently moved. But I assure you these maps show Enloe’s in north and

northeastern England Circa:1500’s.

Secondly, the Coat of Arms has been circulated elsewhere, other than Halbert’s, which I too believe to be a hoax,

but I believe there IS a coat of arms for the Enloes. I will do my best to find the direct source in my files as soon

as possible for you.

Third, and most crucial to your debate of Enloe English or Scotch descent, is the fact that my direct ancestor,

Isaac Enloe, stated on his original records (marriage, census, and death records), that he was born in Scotland.

These records are easily located in South Carolina Genealogy libraries and through genealogy societies. They are

also listed in Thomas Enloe’s book, and E.E. Enloe’s book on the heritage of the Enloe’s, and Dr. I.N. Enloe’s

research. The Enloe’s of South Carolina were of Presbyterian religion, founded in Scotland. Isaac Enloe carried a

Presbyterian bible printed in Glasgow, Scotland, and Asahel Enloe’s (his son) presbyterian bible, which probably

was Isaac’s originally, is located in the DAR (Daughter’s of American Revolution) Genealogy library in

Washington, D.C.

The idea that Hendricks Enloes of Baltimore, Maryland was Dutch comes from the fact that he came over to

America on a ship loaded with Dutch people, from the Netherlands. Ship records are in the National Archives.

I still have seen no real (original)documentary evidence that Joris Kindlesson was the actual father of any

American Enloes/Inloes/Enlows/Inlows (and any of the other numerous spellings of the name). The only place

where I have seen this Joris mentioned is in a submission of family genealogy records listed in the LDS

(Mormon) Ancestry files. There is NO documentary information listed as to where this Joris Kindlesson shows up

on any original paperwork of any kind that can be substantiated.

I would like to see documentary proof that both Joris Kindlesson is linked to Hendricks Enloes on original papers,

and that any of the Maryland and New England Enloes are linked to the South Carolina and North Carolina

Enloes, because Abraham Enloes/Mary Deason of Baltimore, Maryland are supposed to be the parents of Isaac

Enloe and two brothers of York, South Carolina. However, in 25 years of research all over this country, I have not

seen any original documentary paperwork such as marriage, birth, death, or census records that link Abraham

Enloes of Maryland to Isaac Enloes of South Carolina directly. I HAVE seen a few census records of the

Abraham Enloes family, listing his family by name, including his children, and there is no Isaac Enloes there. By

the date of the census record, and his birth date, he should have been listed as a child.

All of these supposed links are hearsay, as far as I am concerned. I believe some well-intentioned amatuer

genealogist researched Enloes, and having found one by the same name spelling in Maryland, assumed things,

and linked Isaac Enloe, Enoch Enloe, and Nathaniel Enloe of York, South Carolina, to this Abraham Enloes of

Maryland, simply because the dates seem to be close for a father /sons relationship. Once this paperwork made its

circulation, many others simply grabbed the information as fact, and have continued the potentially erroneous myth.

I REPEAT, to my knowledge, there is NO legitimate documentation that shows a connection on both counts: Joris

Kindlesson/Hendricks Enloes – and – Abraham Enloes/Isaac Enloe. Yet many people are circulating this

connection as fact. I challenge anyone to produce a legitmate original document that shows this relationship

clearly. then I will believe.

Pat Enloe Deutsch

6/15/2006 Note by RBE

Recent DNA test results show there is a very high probability that Isaac Enloe, Enoch Enloe, Abraham Enloe of

Western NC, and Hendricks Enloes of Gunpowder Manor in Colonial Maryland were all closely related.

My conclusions from these data, combined with the documented evidence found to date:

1. Abraham was the son of Enoch

2. Enoch & Isaac were brothers

3. Hendricks Enloes was their MRCA

4. Isaac was not an original immigrant from Scotland

Isaac served in the militia in 1780. They were married about 1770(see note below). Violet was mentioned in

brother, DAvid’s will of 1812 and sister-in-law, Jane Byers Porter in 1818. She was also mentioned in father,

Following the death of Abraham around July or August of 1758, his wife, Mary, and many of their children migrated to York County, South Carolina to join her Deason relatives. Their son, Deason Enloes, enlisted in the Revolutionary War for the 3rd South Carolina Regiment as a Private on July 7, 1782 under Captain Joseph Wharley, commanded by Colonel William Thomson. He was discharged following twelve months of service on July 8, 1783. Deason applied for a pension on June 24, 1818 while living in Richland District of South Carolina. His son, Jacob, made an affidavit on July 29, 1853 from Greenville District of South Carolina. Deason received £16 6 shillings 8 pence Sterling for his service.

For several years I have been researching cemeteries in Garrett Co., MD.

On a recent trip, I was given 3 cemetery stones by a man whose former wife had purchased them at an auction.Based on the names, and the brief research I have done over the last several weeks, I believe they are the

stones for James Enlows (1756-1/17/1822) who married Prudence (Marsh) Enlows (1757-1/12/1838), both from Harford Co., MD at the time of James taking the Oath of Alligiance” during the Rev. War. Prudence was the

daughter of Thomas Marsh who married a Sophia Corbin.

I would like to return all three of these stones to their original resting place provided I can obtain proper documentation for the original resting place.

The third stone, I believe may be their daughter based on the dates thereon. The name on this stone is Rebecca Enloes (1788-2/27/1867).

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

In Reply to: James Enlow(e)s of Harford Co., MD by Jeffrey H. Fowler of 162

Jeff..I was doing some reading in some family papers I have and came across this which might interest you. It says: James Enlows was born between 28 Feb, 1755 and 27 Feb. 1756, as determined from tombstone records.

These tombstones can no longer be found. They were last seen at the edge of Friendship United Methodist church graveyard in Falston, MD, but were originally located at a family cemetary on land once owned by James Enlows, Sr., near or adjacent to the church yard. If you are unable to return the stones to the original site would you be interested in selling them to me?

Jim,

I had a reseracher do my Childs line in Maryland. He shows Thomas b. 31 Oct 1813 in Baltimore Co., MD married 1832 to Sophia Hezlete. He was son of Thomas Worth & Temperance Inloes. Karen – researcher is

Robert Barnes bobb@mdarchives.state.md.us

March 19, 2002 e-mail response from John Ottinger

Dear Mr. Enloe,

Thank you for your inquiry about Temperance Inloes. I got her birth date from a direct descendant some years ago who I knew only as “Mary”, with an e-mail address of Macyram@aol.com. I have misplaced the exact correspondence but I believe she said she had a Bible entry, and also was in possession of a sampler made by Temperance in which she (Temp.) put the date–15 May 1794, her age (9), and other features. The age would be in accord with her death entry, which is dated 23 Aug 1831 and states that she is 46 years of age. I found this in Henry C. Peden Jr’s Methodist Records of Baltimore City, Volume 2, 1830-1839, pp 117 and 187 (essentially duplicate entries). Her marriage date, to Thomas Childs, is from Robert Barnes’ Marriages and Deaths from Baltimore Newspapers, 1796-1816.

Although the Barnes and Peden volumes are compilations and therefore secondary sources, if you know anything about Baltimore genealogy you will know that both are highly regarded, and I have no reason to question the entries. On the other hand, I have not searched for the original sources.

I have Abraham’s will as well, and if one assumes the order of the children to be from oldest to youngest, Temperance being toward the end of the list would tend to reinforce the 1785 birth date.

I also have the following sources; perhaps you do also. Maryland Calendar of Wills, X, 107, for the abstract of the will of Anthony Inloes, Abraham’s presumptive father, in which at least a son Abraham is named; a list of Enloes’ marriages from Barnes’ Maryland Marriages, 1634-1777 (p 59); another marriage list from Barnes’ Maryland Marriages, 1778-1800 (p 114); the entries from Barnes’ Baltimore County Families, 1659-1759 (pp 204-205 and 717-718) for earlier Enloes families, going back to a progenitor Hendrick who was in Baltimore County by 1674; MD Calendar of Wills, III, 116, for an abstract of a will by Hendrick (presumably the same) in 1707; another in MCW, 145, for an Abraham who d in 1709 (and had a son Anthony). I also have relevant portions from the E. E. Enlow manuscript you mention, although in my opinion this is somewhat dated.

I admit I haven’t worked out the precise details of these early Enloes in any depth.

My weak link is that I lack proof that my ancestor Julia Ann Childs (1827-1882), of whom there is no question, was the daughter of Thomas Childs and Temperance Inloes; although considerable circumstantial evidence strongly supports this. There is also the interesting question of Temperance’s middle name–Atkinson. Obviously a surname, there are connections between it and the name Elliott in the 1700s, in that both Enloeses and Atkinsons married Elliotts; but again I haven’t pursued it.

I would be glad to correspond with you further if we can be of mutual assistance, or even if I can provide additional help alone.

Best regards,

John Ottinger

Hello Mr. Ottinger, I found your family tree data posted on the Roots Web site and wondered if you could share your data sources for Temperance Inloes and her family with me. I am researching her father, Abraham Inloes, as there is a potential he is part of my direct line. I don’t know a great deal about Abraham & Elizabeth Inloes, but have found a copy of his will, which names all of his children.

The children’s birth dates are not listed but obviously all were born before his death in 1790. I will copy the text of his will for your reference. I would greatly appreciate any thing you may be able to add to this group.

Best regards,

Bob Enloe

Bend , Oregon

Abraham Inloes/Enloes’s will, dated 1790, is presented in a manuscript titled: The Enloe – Enlow – Inlow Family by E. E. Enloe. This will lists 10 children. These children were: “my ten children to wit: Anthony – Abraham – Elizabeth – Joshua – James – John – Eleanor – Temperance – William – Margaret”; the copy of the will follows: [see notes for Abraham for complete text of the will]

 

Notes for Thomas Wroth Childs:

For reference:8/4/2002 email from Karen Childs at dnk@escapees.com

Hello Bob,

Just received your research. Couple comments:

1. Thomas Childs b.31 Oct 1813 was married twice. First to Sophia Hezlete 1832 Maryland. I figure she may

have died in childbirth because Thomas remarried 30 Oct. 1833 to Mary Ann Marks. Their dau.Hannah, married

and became a Mormon moving to Salt Lake City. Hannah’s Mormon relatives have done research on this branch

being in the LDS family history library.

2. William Inoes married to Mary Sewell dau. of either Capt. Nathaniel or Richard Sewell (I’m not positive). She

d. 29 Dec 1860-64 Bulter Co., Ohio. Source is the “Nathaniel Childs, Jr. letter to son Theodore F. Childs” I have

in my files.

3. Temperance Atkinson Inoes Childs: I have her buried ’23’ Aug 1831, Public Vault, Medodist burial grounds,

E:2:117, pg 187. Also 22 August 1831 Methodist Records of Baltimore City, MD Vol. 2 pg. 117, 187, 1830-39

by Henry C. Peden. So this date seems to be either the 22nd or 23rd.

4. Thomas Wroth Childs son of Nathaniel & Tamer (Wroth) Brown, has a Obituary at the Pratt Library on film 7-

29-43 pg 2/// 23 Nov. 1848 page 2. I see you have his death 28 July 1843. Do you recall where that source came

from? thanks. Maybe you can contact Robt. Barnes on this bobb9219@hotmail.com let me know what he says

about it please.

5. I have never found any Julia Ann Childs being the child of Thomas & Temperance. Their last child was

Eleanor b. 1819 as far as I have researched.

6. *William Childs b. 1803 Baltimore; married Ruth Reed; d. Key West of Yellow Fever.

*George b.1804 Balt.; d. 1828 lost at sea.

*Eliza married Wm. Cahoon d. 1823.

*Henry Isaac (mine) d.Lee Co., Iowa; married Susan Ann Turner 10 July 1828 Baltimore Co., MD.

*Temperance b. 1808; d.1824.

*Margaret Amanda b. 1815 Baltimore; married 1st Wm. Hale 1829 who d. St. Louis. and married James

Paterson, lived London, England and was in Venizuela, South America 1879 living for a time.

*Thomas had two wives, no children by 1st wife Sophia, 2nd wife Mary Ann Marks.

*Joseph b. 1802 was residing in the south in 1879, nothing more known about him.

*Elinor Atkinson Childs d. 23 June 1844; married Henry Clark 23 Nov 1836 St. Louis, MO where she d.

*Edward b. 1810 Baltimore; married Catherine M. Lee 29 April 1831 Baltimore. Was living in the south in 1879.

*I know nothing of Julia Childs?????There were two Childs families in the Baltimore Co. at the same time period, makes it tough to research & maybe there is a mix up!

I have children of William and Mary (Sewell) Inloes as Henry Inloes, M.D.(d. 1876); Margaret; Ellen; and Mary. I know nothing more of this family.

As you can see there are many differences. I did most of my research in Cecil Co. of the earlier Childs and Bob Barnes, C. Smithson researchers have done work for me. Plus I lived in the D.C. area for 5 years where I was able to use the Archives. There could be errors in my data, this ‘hobby’ is never complete. Please if you have questions I’d like to explore them with you. Thanks for all your hard work.

So happy so many are getting into Genealogy. Hope the Oregon fires are out very soon. Cool 40-50 in the morning and now a nice 79. Keep in touch.

Husband’s Notes…

********************************

Henry Vernor became a Primitive Baptist Minister after all his children were grown and on their own. From 1798

to 1811, he lived in Bedford Co., TN, six miles south of the courthouse near Old Britain Presbyterian Church. He

and Christiana Enloe had 17 children, six died in infancy and four of the names are not known.

I’ve seen conflicting information on Henry & Christiana’s wedding date. Information I was given says it was 1798

in Iredell Co, NC and information from a cousin says May 8, 1799 in Rutherford Co, NC. Another says August 5,

1799. (I don’t know which is correct, as of March 17, 1999.) Ezekiel Enloe Vernor said it was Iredell Co, NC.

Henry Vernor recovered his father William Vernor’s estate of $300 (60 pounds Sterling) when he came of age.

This record is in the Iredell Co., NC courthouse.

The first eight children of Henry & Christiana were born in Rutherford Co, NC

1798-1811 – Rutherford Co, NC — January 1999 I saw on the Internet a note that in 1826 Henry Vernor bought

land in Bedford Co, TN.

1811-1814 – Maury Co., TN, 8 miles east of Columbia. 10th child (Benjamin) was born here. This is almost in the

center of TN.

1814 – Marshall Co, TN

Lived in Marshall Co, 8-10 miles east of Lewisburg where they located near the Old Bethberia Presbyterian

Church (also referred to as Old Britain) and School. They stayed there to raise their 11 children James Elisius

Vernor was born there ca. 1819. Many relatives are buried at this old church.

Franklin Co., TN

Here Abigail met/married George W. Champion

After a few years in Franklin County, James Elisius married and settled on a flat of the mountain about midway

between Sallie and Abigail and moved his parents over on the south side of the mountain. Sallie m. Rev. Westley

Sisk in Jackson Co, AL on 8-3-1852.

Brothers John and Samuel Vernor came to America from Ireland ca. 1750, and John Vernor became the

progenitor of the northern branch of Vernors in America. Was our William Vernor related to them?

Southern Branch of Vernors (This information is from a family biography written by Ezekiel Enloe Vernor.)

Another VERNOR marriage in the Jackson Co, AL marriage records: Latetia VERNOR m. William Andrew,

page 905, license 1519.

=======================

In the 1850 Agricultural Census of Jackson Co. AL:

Henry VERNOR, 54 acres of improved land, 103 acres of unimproved land $650 cash value of land, $15 value of farm implements and machinery, $260 value of livestock.

Also, In the 1850 Agricultural Census of Jackson Co. AL:

James VERNOR 35 acres of improved land, 30 acres of unimproved land $225 cash value of land, $10 value of farm implements and machinery, $250 value of livestock.

*****************

Wife’s Notes…

********************************

In notes from an autobiography written by Ezekiel Enloe Vernor, he states that Christiana Enloe as “from West Virginia.” (Did he mean the western part of Virginia or the state of West Virginia?) Check this out. B. Herndon’s information lists Christiana’ s birthplace as Rutherford Co, NC. When Henry became a Primitive Baptist minister after all the children were grown and gone, but Christiana was a Presbyterian all her life (according to her son, Ezekiel Enloe Vernor).

Becky Smith

Hi, Robert —

I was given the information by another researcher and I apparently did not get that name into my computer. I may have it somewhere in my paperwork. Since that posting, however, I’ve added a note to the effect that it is unproven and probably incorrect and that it’s more likely that Christiana ENLOE born in 1770 was a daughter of Anthony ENLOE, brother of Enoch. I have not had time yet to follow up on any of this. J. Spruell confirms that Christiana was Anthony’s daughter and also that Enoch did have a Christian(a?) close to the same age (b. ca. 1778) and that he has not seen any document that actually proves which Christiana married Henry VERNOR. However, in Ezekiel Enloe VERNOR’s writings, he identifies his mother’s birthday as April 2, 1770, which fits Anthony’s daughter, but not Enoch’s. Thanks for your reply to my posting! — Becky

3/5/2002 e-mail from william C. Enloe

Hi Bob. This is very interesting.

The Rutherford Co. reg. of deeds shows Henry Varner and Christian Enloe married Ruth. Co. May 8, 1799.

Even Col. Thomas A. Enloe listed a Christian Enloe among his list of Enoch Enloe “family”.

But, I’ve been corresponding with a lady who says that Henry Vernor (note the correct spelling) who married

Christian Enloe, on May 8, 1799, was her 4th g grandfather. Henry Vernor was born in Iredell County in 1774.

Christiana was born April 2, 1770. They had 17 children, many were born in Rutherford County; others were born

in Tennessee.

A son of Henry and Christian Vernor, Ezekial Enloe Vernor, wrote a biography listing all children and telling

about each. He said that Christiana Enloe was born Apr 2, 1770 in Tryon County (which later became

Rutherford Co.) to Anthony Enloe and Agnes ____ . Christian Enloe Vernor died Nov. 1849 in Jackson Co.,

Alabama.

Now, check this out:

Abraham and Mary Deason Enloe had 11 children; one of these was Anthony b. in Balt. Md.and died in

Rutherford Co. N.C.

The N.C. census 1790 shows a Agnes Inlow, a widow, with 9 in the household: 3 males older than 16 and 6

females.

Christian Enloe who married Henry Vernor was a daughter of Anthony and Agnes of Rutherford Co. I have

wondered why Christen Enloe would inherit all of her mom’s (Mary Deason Enloe) property in York, S.C. and

come to Rutherford County.

Mary Deason Enloe’s daughter was born in Baltimore County, Md., not in Tryon Co. N.C. which became

Rutherford County.

Col. Thomas A. Enloe thought this Christian must have been a daughter of Enoch. Isaac Enloe left and will and a

Bible naming his children. I think Col. Thomas A. thought since we know all of Isaac’s children, these unknowns

must have been Enoch’s.

I have a copy of all of this info on 8 pages which this lady sent to me. I will be glad to send it to you if you want,

along with some other stuff that I think you might enjoy.

I saw your entry in the Enloe Forum1/9/02 (I think). Ephraim Ellswoth spelled his name Enlow but he was born

in Baltimore County, Maryland and his first five generations were the same as ours; the same ancestry. I think his

work has been overlooked.

Hi, Robert —

I was given the information by another researcher and I apparently did not get that name into my computer. I may

have it somewhere in my paperwork. Since that posting, however, I’ve added a note to the effect that it is

unproven and probably incorrect and that it’s more likely that Christiana ENLOE born in 1770 was a daughter of

Anthony ENLOE, brother of Enoch.

I have not had time yet to follow up on any of this.

J. Spruell confirms that Christiana was Anthony’s daughter and also that Enoch did have a Christian(a?) close to

the same age (b. ca. 1778) and that he has not seen any document that actually proves which Christiana married

Henry VERNOR.

However, in Ezekiel Enloe VERNOR’s writings, he identifies his mother’s birthday as April 2, 1770, which fits

Anthony’s daughter, but not Enoch’s.

Thanks for your reply to my posting! — Becky

Husband’s Notes…

********************************

Henry Vernor became a Primitive Baptist Minister after all his children were grown and on their own. From 1798

to 1811, he lived in Bedford Co., TN, six miles south of the courthouse near Old Britain Presbyterian Church. He

and Christiana Enloe had 17 children, six died in infancy and four of the names are not known.

I’ve seen conflicting information on Henry & Christiana’s wedding date. Information I was given says it was 1798

in Iredell Co, NC and information from a cousin says May 8, 1799 in Rutherford Co, NC. Another says August 5,

1799. (I don’t know which is correct, as of March 17, 1999.) Ezekiel Enloe Vernor said it was Iredell Co, NC.

Henry Vernor recovered his father William Vernor’s estate of $300 (60 pounds Sterling) when he came of age.

This record is in the Iredell Co., NC courthouse.

The first eight children of Henry & Christiana were born in Rutherford Co, NC

1798-1811 – Rutherford Co, NC — January 1999 I saw on the Internet a note that in 1826 Henry Vernor bought

land in Bedford Co, TN.

1811-1814 – Maury Co., TN, 8 miles east of Columbia. 10th child (Benjamin) was born here. This is almost in the

center of TN.

1814 – Marshall Co, TN

Lived in Marshall Co, 8-10 miles east of Lewisburg where they located near the Old Bethberia Presbyterian

Church (also referred to as Old Britain) and School. They stayed there to raise their 11 children James Elisius

Vernor was born there ca. 1819. Many relatives are buried at this old church.

Franklin Co., TN

Here Abigail met/married George W. Champion

After a few years in Franklin County, James Elisius married and settled on a flat of the mountain about midway

between Sallie and Abigail and moved his parents over on the south side of the mountain. Sallie m. Rev. Westley

Sisk in Jackson Co, AL on 8-3-1852.

Brothers John and Samuel Vernor came to America from Ireland ca. 1750, and John Vernor became the

progenitor of the northern branch of Vernors in America. Was our William Vernor related to them?

Southern Branch of Vernors (This information is from a family biography written by Ezekiel Enloe Vernor.)

Another VERNOR marriage in the Jackson Co, AL marriage records: Latetia VERNOR m. William Andrew,

page 905, license 1519.

=======================

In the 1850 Agricultural Census of Jackson Co. AL:

Henry VERNOR, 54 acres of improved land, 103 acres of unimproved land $650 cash value of land, $15 value of

farm implements and machinery, $260 value of livestock.

Also, In the 1850 Agricultural Census of Jackson Co. AL:

James VERNOR 35 acres of improved land, 30 acres of unimproved land $225 cash value of land, $10 value of

farm implements and machinery, $250 value of livestock.

Wife’s Notes…

********************************

In notes from an autobiography written by Ezekiel Enloe Vernor, he states that Christiana Enloe as “from West

Virginia.” (Did he mean the western part of Virginia or the state of West Virginia?) Check this out. B. Herndon’s

information lists Christiana’ s birthplace as Rutherford Co, NC.

When Henry became a Primitive Baptist minister after all the children were grown and gone, but Christiana was a

Presbyterian all her life (according to her son, Ezekiel Enloe Vernor).

Notes for Abraham Enloe:

Notes by Robert B. Enloe as of 12/19/2004:

The information regarding our direct Enloe family line, which goes back through Joseph Volley Enloe, Thomas Jefferson Enloe, Sarah Elvira Enloe Maxwell, Benjamin Mattison Enloe, and Abraham Enloe came

through family records and bibles, along with help from Colonel Thomas A. Enloe to identify Abraham & Sarah Edgerton and then to identify Abraham’s father and mother, Enoch Enloe & Miss Sprucebanks.

Documents found in the York County courthouse in South Carolina by Charlotte Enloe show Abraham Enloe as a party involved, or a witness to cases and land title transactions in the years 1785 through 1796 as follows:

York Co. SC

19 Aug 1785 witness involving Robert Kennedy (father of Sarah)

17 Nov 1786 witness

13 Feb 1787 Land grant 90 acres on Bullock Creek

10 July 1793 John Moffet versus Abraham

10 July 1794 Endores a note

11 Aug 1796 Court action Abraham versus John McClain

Since an individual had to be of legal age, 21 or more, to participate; Abraham’s birth date must have been

before 1770, which was carved on his grave marker. Additionally, census records for multiple census counts indicate his date of birth was about 1763, which is the date I am now using.

In addition, a codicil to Abraham’s will is dated February 22, 1841; therefore his actual death was after that date. This also proves another error on his grave marker which gives the year of his death as 1840. This causes

me to wonder if Abraham is really buried in the grave in the Murphy church graveyard, which is marked with his name

Following is a post regarding the tombstone placed on the supposed grave of Abraham, which is located in a graveyard on his last farm. This is now a part of the Great Smokey Mountains National Park:

The names of Abraham’s other children, and several spouses were from Col. Enloe’s manuscript as well.

(except Jessee, who’s name was supplied by William C. Enloe]

Additional information was extracted from the book, “The Genesis of Lincoln” by James H. Cathey and these were primarily the details as supplied by other Enloe descendants, and published as letters, in Cathey’s

book.

Some additional data on the children of Abraham & Sarah was also extracted from FTM data, generation #6, “descendents of Thomas Capel”

Other Notes for Abraham Enloe: “Abraham Enloe’s First Record in America”

A memoir written by Edward Conner in 1937, and published in “The Bone Rattler,” Bulletin of the Swain County Genealogical and Historical Society, Volume 11, Number 4, 1995 pp 12-18.

“Here is the first glimpse of the Enloe’s in America. it’s claimed that three Enloe brothers and one sister, first landed in the state of Maryland, near the middle of the seventeenth century, and that one brother settled there. The

other one’s moved on into the district of York, South Carolina, living there for sometime. Their names, Abraham,

Ezekial, Anthony, and Martha Ann Enloe, she later married Berry Melton on Bee Tree Creek of McDowell County, NC., a few miles north of Marion, NC. [Note: There are Abrahams, Ezekials, and Anthonys in the Enloe

history, no Martha Ann that I have located as yet – ec]

(note by RBE: I think it is quite likely the preceding story is not accurate. I suspect the roots of this tale are with the 4 sons of the Unknown Enloe, who some list as Joris Kindlosson, who immigrated to Maryland. These sons

were Hendricks, Peter, John, and Abraham) Abraham Enloe III finally moved into Rutherford County, NC, where he resided for a considerable time, and it is claimed he accumulated much wealth in a few brief years, but he must have brought his wealth with him, or else he was a marvelous financier. At any rate he sure has acquired much wealth in Rutherford County, while raising a large family, his wife was Sarah Edgerton, called Sallie Enloe. Well for some unknown reason, Mr. Enloe disposed of several fine farms, moving across those Blue Ridge mountains into Western North Carolina,

Buncombe County, a little world so to speak, stopping on Jonathan’s Creek for a while, I am told, then moved across the Soco mountains into a small fertile valley know in my day as the Old Soco Mission Farm, in the forks

of the road’s, having a very large hewed log building for church and school purpous. Then I first remember the place, where in many years later, Lushes Enloe taught two or more schools, he being a grand-son of the same

Abraham and Sarah Enloe, as mentioned above.

Well, it’s claimed that Mr. Enloe made a brief stay on Soco, moving a few miles over on the Ocona Lufty river, where John Jacob Mingus, Rafe Hughes, and a few others had previously settled near the mouth of Mingus Creek, thus deriving it’s name from the first white man to mark her soil, by establishing his claim first in this undesturbed wilderness. Well, Mr. Enloe sure procured a fine home oposit the forks of the Ocona Lufty and Raven Fork rivers, due south, where he and Sallie lived and died, and it is said, to be sleeping in an unmarked tombs regardless of his abundant wealth, just in sight of his lovely home. It’s now owned by the Great Smokey Mountain

National park. Now I will proceed with the record of their descendants, as follows:

Scrupe Enloe Family Record

He was married twice. Once to Miss Sarreh Angel. They had 1 girl and 4 boys as follows: His last wife was Mary Herrell of Scott’s Creek, no children.

Captain Bill Enloe married ? of Jackson Co., NC family unknown.

Asoph Enloe Sr. married Nancy Battle of Conley’s Creek, now Whittier, family unknown.

Sevier Enloe married Ella Monteith of present Cherokee, NC, he was a Quallatownite of Jackson County, NC.

His family: Sallie, Claud, Cumye Enloe and Mary Enloe Beck.

(note by RBE – as written above, I have not found any other information to prove Sevier was a son of Abraham & Sarah, it is thought this was probably Scroop Sevier Enloe, the son of Scroop) John Enloe Sr. Married Millie ? and moved some where in Tennessee. Family unknown.

Elizabeth Enloe, called Betsy married a Mr. Parks first, had 3 boys and 1 girl, Sarah Parks, wife of Tom Keener of Qualla Town, NC, now Whittier, NC. no children. Next Mrs. Parks married Fletcher Gibbs the last time and

had 2 girls and 1 boy. Edwiney, Boozeena, and Charley Gibbs of Qualla Town, now Whittier, NC.

1. Hanable Enloe married martha Hyatt. They had 3 boys and 1 girl. Edgar, Charles, Fred, and Mamy, wife of Allan Monteith.

3. Arazelia Enloe, wife of Coal Ashe, had one son, Bob Ashe, parents dead.

4. Bertha Enloe never married, had one son, Willis Enloe of old Qualla Town, N. C.

Wesley Enloe, his wife Miss Malindy Lollice, raised by Dr. John and Polly Mingus of Ocona Lufty, N.C. “A Lady”. They had 7 girls and 4 boys to live.

(see family page for names and comments)

Benjamine Franklin Enloe, (called Matt ), married 3 times.

First to Sarah Haines of Goldsboro, N.C., had 1 girl and 3 boys (see family page for names and comments)

(note by RBE – this person must be Benjamin Mattison Enloe)

Description:

The Enloe’s are ordinarily tall in stature, with broud flat, hollow breast. Having long slender boany hands and

arms to match their stack poal legs. They as a whole have heavy eye brow boans, with deep eye sockits and high

cheek boans, while all that take after the Enloe’s of the family carry long faces, with high roman nose and a sallow

complexion. Pale blue or brown mixt eyes and commonly very hardy, with the exception of a morbid apatie that

crave’s more delicious food every meal. They are ordinarily of average intelligence. They sure delight in

couthouse assemblage on public days. They’al court if they never marry. They are slighly stained with denominational and political prejudice, and if offended they never can get well. They most they are extreaqmely

fond of strong drink, while a few of them possess the will power to fearlessely resist the temptation for sin curst habit. the enloe’s have some peculier traits, so do I. They sure delight in something comical, but they wont all the

fun to go their way. They are all clever at their homes if they like you, but if not, they are more so at your home.

One of those Enloe’s practically raised me, is why I sure know their general disposition. They as a whole are overly religios and some are not to moral, but you know when you cross a colly with a bulldog, you see you have

anything but a colly, and yet you’ve got no bull dog. You see the colly wag’s his tail in friendship, while your bull dog growels for trouble, then you have neather colly nor bull dog, you just have a fool, haven’t you?

The Enloe’s has one peculierarity, they are just taring their mouths with laughter if they like you, or pucker every mussel in their faces to surppross a smile for those they do not like. They seem honest but slow to pay. Most of

them have a disire to lead, but few bells suit them and don’t admire a little bell anyway. You know the Enloe that raised me sure delighted in a barrell of fun, yet he posseswsed some noble traits of character. He was courteous at

his home, he wanted everyone to feel welcome there and share alike with him. There sure was not one drop of singy blood in his vains. I din’t believe he would have eaten a piece of dry bread in the presence of a negro

without dividin his morsel with him and one more fine principle was when he took that solemn oath as a juror or witness, I don’t believe he could have been bribed, but like many other generations, there has been a little colored

streak that extends through the entire length of each generation as they coime and go. While their thrist for strong drink seems to be the tenor cord to the most of their unhappyness and seems to be hereditary. If I was one of the young Enloe’s I’d sure would refuse to smell an empty whiskey bottle for fear it got the best of me. As a little preventative is worth a great cures. Always kill the mad dog before he bites. You that stops the danger, you know that everybody dreads the live snake, not the dead one. And habitual drunkness is an awful foe. Don’t forget that Mr. Boy’s as the Enloe’s thrist for strong drink seems to be their most besetting sin and the very one that’s going to prove detrimental to all your future prosperity. Therefore shun the sin curst stuff, is the advice of the author.

Following is the text of Abraham’s will, as supplied by William C. Enloe:

The Will of Abram Enloe

Whereas I, Abram Enloe, of the County of Haywood, state of North Carolina, have by my last will and testament

in writing, duly executed, bearing date February the 18th, 1841.

I have given and bequest to my beloved wife Sara(Sary) Enloe all of my land, negro, house and furniture that I now am in possession of, during her life time, and then to revert to some of my heirs.

Now the said Abram Enloe being ________ in respect to the said legacies I do therefore make this present writing, which I will and direct to be annexed codicil to my said will, and taken as a part thereof. And I do hereby

revoke the said legacies given to Sarah Enloe, my wife, and I do give to each of my three beloved sons a tract or piece of land:

W. M. Enloe, the piece where I now live.

_____ Enloe, in the fork of the river. [this was probably John]

_____ Enloe, across the river from the house [this was probably Ezekiel Alfred]

Each one of them I have made this way, deed to them, not to have possession til my wife’s death.

When did Abraham Enloe migrate to the Smoky Mountain region to settle on the Oconaluftee? Most assuredly not before he owned any land there. Wesley Enloe remarked that it was sometime between 1803 and 1808.

Cathey states that it was “about the year 1805, while early settlers were staking their claims further west.” “This occurred in about 1803 or 1804 as indicated in old records in Rutherford County. (Also see records at

Asheville),” says Coggins. Though at first the settlement site was in Buncombe County-named after Colonel Edward Buncombe -of which Asheville is the county seat, there are no records concerning Abraham Enloe in the court house there which we have been able to find. These, instead, are on file at Waynesville, county seat of Haywood County. Rutherford County records give no hint regarding the migration.

Buncombe originally was very large, taking in all that part of western North Carolina west of Rutherford.

Haywood was derived from Buncombe, Jackson from Haywood, Swain from Jackson. Abraham Enloe’s site was successively in each of these counties.

The fact that his earliest transactions were not recorded till some time after their execution probably explains why these records are in Haywood County. Swain County today, with Bryson City on the Tuckasegee as its seat,

besides some territory to the south, takes in a goodly part of the North Carolinian or southern portion of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Southeast of Swain is Jackson County, of which Sylva, where lived James

Cathey at the time he wrote his book, is the shire town. Northeast of Jackson County, with its seat Waynesville Abraham Enloe made his first purchase of land in far western North Carolina of Felix Walker for 800 dollars,

February 20, 1807, both men being referred to as residents of Rutherford County. This transaction was for 250 acres of land in Buncombe County on the west side of the Ocuna Lufta River. One of the witnesses was Sarah

Bryson. The deed was acknowledged at the September, 1817, term of court in Haywood County.

June 4, 1807, Abraham Enloe purchased a second tract of 100 acres from Thomas Jones “situate and being in County of Buncombe on both sides of Scotts Creek including the cave break”. Ransom Edgenton was a witness.

while the transfer was acknowleded before Felix Walker, October 17, 1807.

Two years later Abraham sold this latter tract, 100 acres “both sides of Scotts Creek including the cain brake” to James Bryson.

This document shows that Abraham Enloe had not yet migrated to his Smoky Mountain home: “This Indenture made the 15th July in the year of Lord one thousand and eight hundred and nine between Am Enloe of the County of Rutherford and State of North Carolina of the one part and James Brison of the county of Haywood of the other part.”

He signs his name here in abbreviation as in several other places, as Am. Enloe. We have found no documentary evidence to show exactly when Abraham Enloe did migrate. It was doubtless shortly after 1809; it was definitely before 1815 when he purchased three more tracts on the Oconaluftee from John Hyde, selling this same Hyde some slaves, the transactions showing that he then lived in Haywood County.

It was probably in 1810 that he moved, for Wesley Enloe who was born in 1811 is said to have been born in Haywood County.

More About ABRAHAM ENLOE III:

Burial: Aft. Feb 22, 1841, a tombstone marker is at the Methodist Church cemetary at Murphy, NC with dob 1770

& dod 1740. Both dates are in error. Perhaps he was actually buried in the cemetery at the family farm where

there are markers for him & Sarah.6

Medical Information: tall, well over 6 ft, with dark hair

Notes for SARAH EDGERTON:

The spelling of her last name could also have been Egerton

per Col. Thomas A. Enloe, a law suit was introduced during the 1864 fall term of the Court of Equity, Jackson Co., NC to settle the estate of Sarah Enloe. The issue was the distribution of the estate, which he states, “was

complicated by the fact that several of the slaves had had a number of children”. All of the children of Sarah, and some grandchildren are named in this set of papers, which includes B. M. Enloe.

Rutherford Co., NC Marriage Bonds

Enloe, Abraham Edgerton, Sally Jan 9, 1795 James Morris, Richard Lew

Abraham & Sarah’s 1st home site was located at Puzzle Creek, Rutherford County, NC

The following description was provided by William C. Enloe:

Puzzle Creek is in Rutherford Co. There is a country crossroads, about two miles NE of Forest City, called Bostic. At Bostic, there is a gravel road where you travel for about a mile before you come to a beautiful,

picturesque creek rolling over rocks. At the bridge there is a rectangular stone that is engraved “Lincoln Hill”.

The farm road up Lincoln Hill is across property belongiing to the Bostic family. There is a stone outlline of a foundation-said to be the home of Abram Enloe. This stone “Lincoln Hill” was placed there by a prominent local

genealogist named Tom Melton.

From researcher Charles R. Carroll, 710 Alamo Road, Fredericksburg, TX 78624 I learn that there was an Abraham Enloe born in York Co., S. C. sometime between 1766 and 1790 while the Cunningham family lived

there. The Enloe’s moved to Rutherford Co., North Carolina in the 1790’s and Abraham received a land grant in 1794. Between 1803 and 1804, Abraham moved to Buncombe Co., where the Cunninghams were already living at the time. He reportedly had 16 children, none named Joel.

The following is for reference to the area:

There is also a mistaken belief that the area that in 1828 became Macon County was a part of Buncombe County.

The area that became Macon were lands held by the Cherokee until 1819 when they were ceded to the state by treaty and added to Haywood County. Nevertheless, Macon County is considered part of the area covered by Old

Buncombe County Genealogical Society, by extension.

HOW THE COUNTIES GOT THEIR NAMES

BUNCOMBEFormed in 1791. Named for Col. Edward Buncombe of Tyrrell County, over the door of whose home was the inscription “Welcome all to Buncombe Hall.”

HAYWOODFormed in 1808. Named for John Haywood of Raleigh, State Treasurer for forty years.

MACONFormed in 1828. Named for Nathaniel Macon of Warren County, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives and United States Senator.

HENDERSONFormed in 1838. Named for Chief Justice Leonard Henderson, of the North Carolina Supreme

Court.

CHEROKEEFormed in 1839. Named for the Cherokee Nation the most powerful tribe of Indians in the state.

Our ancestors often used the following naming procedure when picking out a name for a new child. This explains why certain names are VERY common in a given family line. Watching for these patterns can help in your

research.

1st son = father’s father

2nd son = mother’s father

3rd son = father

4th son = father’s oldest brother

5th son = father’s 2nd oldest brother or mother’s oldest brother

1st daughter = mother’s mother

2nd daughter = father’s mother

3rd daughter = mother

4th daughter = mother’s oldest sister

5th daughter = mother’s 2nd oldest sister or father’s oldest sister

The following information on the various dates as related to Abraham and Sarah’s children was recieved from Fay & George Enlow. I am entering here those dates that differ from Col. Thomas A. Enloe’s dates to keep them

recorded until they can be verified as correct.

Notes for NANCY HANKS:

NC traditional stories claim Abraham’s real birth date was several years before that officially listed, he was probably born about 1803.

Nancy Hanks & Abraham were not married, they were lovers. Abraham impregnated Nancy, and then arraigned a marriage to Tom Lincoln. The child was a boy named Abraham Lincoln, who later became the President of the United States.

The background and history is documented in a book – “The Genesis of Lincoln”, by James H. Cathey, which was last published in 1999 by The Crown Rights Book Company.

information that Jesse was a son of Abram & Sarah came from William C. Enloe

Since Jesse’s wife, Polly Hyde, bore an illegimate son(Ruben Posey Hyde) who was fathered by John

Mingus in February of 1821, I have assumed that Jesse must have been dead at that time. This was the same

John Mingus that later married Jesse’s sister, Margaret Mary Enloe. According to Foy Adkisson, Polly Hyde

recieved a $600 judgement from the Bastardy Court of NC, to be paid by John Mingus.

I have info about these two. Joel S. Enloe was son of Isaac Enloe and Betsy Simpson.

Isaac m Clemency J. (Campbell) Steenbergen.

All lived in central MO (Cole and Moniteau Counties)

After the death of Isaac and Betsy Enloe, Joel and his brother were brought to MO by their uncle, James Enloe, my great great grandfather. More of their siblings stayed in KY with other relatives. Joel and Elizabeth both died before 1850 when their children were small, and the childred were brought up by their grandmother, Polly (Stevens) Amos. I know several people in MO who are their descendants. I was an Enloe, born in the same community. There are three distinct families of Enloes in that area:

those from James Enloe, from Joel, and from Enoch Enloe.

James was uncle of Enoch, and Joel his nephew.

 

Isaac Enloe and Elizabeth Simpson had the following children:

[a later will has proven the wife’s first name was Margaret]

she was b. around 1735 in SC and d. ??

Of these Dr. I. N. Enloe gave the fullest and also the most reliable information. Until recent years this physician

was the chief student of Enloe genealogy, having done much investigation by personal correspondence between

the years 1885 and 1921. His material is in the possession of his daughter Mrs. Loyce Enloe Davis, Washington,

D. C., who made it available to Captain Thomas A. Enloe for his studies. Mrs. Davis herself in the autumn of

1947 issued a small pamphlet concerning the family of Enoch Enloe. Before presenting, therefore, the results of

recent investigations concerning this Carolina group it appears worth while to see what Cathey and his

correspondents have said, for they have given that which members of the family themselves, on the basis of

traditional rather than documentary evidence, believed.

James Cathey called upon the Reverend Asahel. [following is Cathey’s summary]

He was not tall of stature but possessed of the proverbially large Enloe nose and ears. – His features were homely

but strangely pleasant and prepossessing. He was a gentleman – educated, refined, but familiar as one’s

grandmother. There was a twinkle of humor about the eye (then blind), and a bubble of homely mirth burst ever

and anon in the stream of conversation. Following are the answers to questions in an interview which I had with

him:

My age is 81. My father was named Gilbert. My grandfather was named Isaac. My father had two brothers, Asahel and Nathaniel. Father and uncle Nathaniel lived and died in York District, South Carolina. They were school teachers. Uncle Aschel moved to Southern Illinois. My profession is Presbyterian minister – preaching since 1851. I never held any political office. I graduated at Davidson College, N. C., in 1847; also attended Theological Seminary at Columbia, South Carolina. Most prominent characteristics physically of the Enloes are big ears and long noses. My father and Uncle Asahel were teachers. My grandfather was a soldier in the Revolutionary war; was wounded at Hook’s defeat, rendering him unfit for further service during war in army. My father was justice of the peace for many years. My oldest brother, Isaac, was a lawyer and practiced his profession in Mississippi; he was delegate to two Democratic conventions. My brother John held office of circuit court clerk in York District, S. C., for several terms. I first knew Abraham Enloe (alleged father of Lincoln) about 1827. I knew him well, also three of his sons – Aseph, Alfred and Scroup. His sons were all tall, slender and muscular. Alfred learned the blacksmith trade at my father’s and was a pleasant man – full of good humor. Can’t tell our relation. My father called him ‘cousin Abram’. He was a trader in horses, etc., and in his yearly visits South always visited my father. It was related of him by a Mr. Kennedy, a kinsman, that if he had every dollar but one and knew that by riding across the continent he could get that one, he would make the trip. He loved to practice jokes and to laugh at their results. He was about six feet in height. Never heard of the tradition until after Lincoln was nominated for the presidency when I heard the rumor that Lincoln’s father was named Enloe. I was then in Mississippi.

Asahel taught school in South Carolina and in 1808 he moved his family to Tennessee where he also taught school. then he moved his family to Kentucky again teaching school. In 1816 he left Kentucky and located in Madison County Illinois. While at Madison County he was surveyor.  He remained there until February, 1818, when he came to the county of Bond.

 

The George Davidson’s were friends from Kentucky and they moved to the area to what would be Bond County–prior to the War of 1812. They left returning to Madison because of Indians, but return to Bond County with his family in 1815 or 1816, because of the milk fever epidemic in Madison County. Asahel probably followed Davidson’s family–perhaps of epidemic reasons and because his daughter married George Davidson’s son Samuel, on Dec. 31, 1816 in Madison County. [Violet’s second Marriage was to Thomas S Waddel, February 18, 1823 in Greenville, Illinois.]

 

When Asahel arrived he settled on the western part of present Greenville. This land now contains old city cemetery or Lansing Cemetery where Asahel was first buried. He built a large home and because of its size and proximity to the stage coach, it soon made it a stopping place for the overland stage. This house was later sold to Robert Lansing. Asahel’s son Ezekiel, lived just a few rods north of Asahel. He deeded the property to Ezekel and Charlotte (White) and Asahel moved to town. Here he became Justice of Peace.

 

The present public square, then owned by Ashel, was cleared of cottonwood and sycamore trees, and Ashel and his sons planted corn. A short time later Asahel and Ezekiel lived just east of the now abandoned passenger depot in Greenville. James, had a home on the north side of the section. Asahel acquired this property on Dec. 27. 1817.

 

In 1818 he was appointed Supervisor of Highways. He was one of the early teachers of the county and taught school for many years. He had an exceptional singing voice and was an excellent speaker. Asahel was elected and served as County Clerk 1823-1825. (There is a record of misconduct in office. Found guilty and not allowed to hold office for 3 years.) Asahel was appointed county surveyor by Govenor Bond and held this office from 1824-1825 and unofficially for many years.

 

He was dismissed from the Shoal Creek Church before it divided in April 1825. He later applied for reinstatement to the “Communion of the Church” and was reinstated. Most written material professes him to be one of the strictest of the old time churchmen, a model citizen esteemed by all who knew him, an upright and Christian gentleman, devoutly religious. He served as a clerk and chorister of the Presbyterian Church.

 

Asahel Purchased SE quarter of the SE quarter of Section 3 of Township 5, on June 1, 1839. The Tract was 40 acres and he paid $50.00.

 

Asahel was highly educated and well versed in law. One source mentions that he was Magistrate Judge.

 

After his wife died in 1845 he married Mary Balch (Widow of Amos P Balch) on Aug 15 1848. Ashel and Mary had no children.

 

After suffering for about a month Asahel died March 11, 1853 of the “Coughing Disease” . He was buried in the old city cemetery of Lansing Cemetery on the grounds of his first purchase in Greenville. Later his remains were moved to Montrose Cemetery. His son Ezekial was administer of his estate. (No will.)

Notes for Henry Simpson Inlow:

Concerning Henry Inlow of Bourbon we gain much from a letter written by one of his descendants.

Mr. Fred H. Enloe, Marshall, Mo., March 9, 1900

Dear Sir: –

I am in receipt of your letter of date Feb. 15. My sketch of my family will be brief but I will give you what facts I am in possession of. My father Henry S. Inlow came from Bourbon Co., Ky., 1829, settled in Pike County, Mo., raised a family of 14 children, 7 girls and 7 boys. You will excuse me on dates of births and deaths as I have no record at hand. My father has been dead about 60 years, was 76 years old when he died. My mother, Saloma (Paston) Inlow has been dead about 50 years. My oldest brother Abram Inlow died in western Tennessee, quite a number of years ago. My half-brother James Inlow died in Ralls Co., Mo. about 35 years ago, MY older brother William died in Pike Co., Mo. about 12 years ago. My brother Samuel P. died about 4 years ago in Ralls Co., Mo. Brother D. has been dead about one year, died in Marion Co., Mo. My sisters have all been dead quite a number of years. I am the only one living of a family of 14 children. – I am very sorry I can not give you dates as to births and deaths. I have a nephew, Tom B. Inlow who is a drygoods merchant in Curryville, Pike Co., Mo., he may possibly have my father’s Bible, if so he can give you the family record. –

Very respectfully,

Saline Co., John E. Inlow

Salt Pond Ave. 770

The Bible mentioned is in the possession of Mrs. M. E. Thale (nee Margaret Elizabeth Inlow) of Independence, Missouri. It is not the Inlow Bible, but that of William Roberts. Fortunately, however, on an inserted paper is given some of the births and marriages of this family of Inlows. There it is recorded:

Henry Inlow son of Henry and Mary Inlow was born April 30th 1765.

This establishes unequivocally Henry as brother of James and son of the Henry who lies buried at Garr Pond. With James himself born in 1767, this makes Henry two years his elder. The parents, Henry Inlow, the elder, and Mary Elliott, were married on May 26, 1763. As we learn from “Old Kentucky Land Grants” Henry’s first land holding was for 64 acres in Clark County. This is undoubtedly the same tract as that containing 60/12′ acres which he sold January 2, 1800, to one John Been. Henry and his wife signed the deed with an “s” retained,on the surname, thus: “Henry Inlows”; “Nancy Inlows”. This is as would be expected on first coming from the Baltimore area where the spelling “Inloes” was in use. Appended to the document is this note:

Henry Inlow, as given by John E. Inlow, had. fourteen children.

Three were by his first wife Nancy-Abram S., James and Sally who married William Highdiver May 20, 1819;

eleven by his second wife Salome Paston-

William M., Henry S., Dudley Vardeman, Samuel P., John E., Susan or Susannah, Elizabeth, Eliza, Jemima,

Mary Ann and Martha Ellen.

Here again we meet the name Jemima just -as in the family of James Inlow of Fleming and in that of Abraham

Enlow of Washington County, Pennsylvania; and Elliott also for John E. is John Elliott Inlow. The exact birth

dates of these we do not know with the exception of Abraham-and William M. whose burial site in Spencerburg

graveyard in Pike County, Missouri, gives the date “Born Aug. 20, 1812”.

The third census of the United States, 1810, shows Henry Inlow’s family to consist of one male under ten, one

from ten to sixteen, one forty five and up (he himself), four females under ten, one ten to sixteen, one sixteen to

twenty six (his second wife who apparently was much younger than her husband). In the tax lists of Clark County

Henry Inlow possessing 63 acres of land first appears in 1799 with a family given as consisting of one male over

twenty one, one male sixteen to twenty one and one slave. Who the male sixteen or over may have been we do not

know; he could not have been a son. This is borne out by the fact that the tax list for the next year for Bourbon

County, May 3, 1800, gives only one male over twenty one.

Subsequent listings for “Inlow, Henry, 150 acres Bourbon, Stoner Cr.” are: 1806, Mar. 12–1 male over 21, 8

horses; 1807, June 14-1 male over 21, 1 male 16-21, 1 slave, 13 horses; 1809, March 18, 1 male over 21, 2

slaves, 11 horses; I810-1 male over 21, 1 male 16-21, 2 slaves, 9 horses; 1814-1 male over 21, 2 males 16-21, 3

slaves, 13 horses; 1815-1 male over 21, 1 male 16-21, 2 slaves, 10 horses; 1816-1 male over 21, 1 male 16-21, 3

slaves, 10 horses.

Henry, like his son Abraham, was a slave holder, though to less extent. In 1829, at the same time that some of the

sons of James Inlow were leaving Fleming to locate in Rush County, Indiana, Henry Inlow and his family

removed for good from Bourbon to settle in Pike County, Missouri. Henry sold out his own holdings four years

previously, Oct. 31, 1825, to John Thomas receiving $5,000 in specie for his two hundred acres. Abraham S.

disposed of his one hundred twenty acres and sixty one poles to Samuel Thomas for one thousand five hundred

dollars Sept. 15, 1828. tle, A. B. S., and Fanny, his wife, are then spoken of as being of the County of Clarke.

ABRAM ENLOW bio

————————————————————

Dr. E. Duis, The Good Old Times in McLean County, Illinois (The Leader Publishing and Printing House – 1874)

Abram Enlow was born January 21, 1809, in Christian County, Kentucky. His father’s name was Abraham Enlow, and his mother’s before her marriage was Jemina Johnson. His father was partly of Dutch descent, and his mother was partly Irish. Abraham Enlow died when Abram was quite young. The latter received only two years schooling in his youth. Sickness and hard work prevented him from attending more. The clothing in those days was often a curiosity. Nothing was considered more elegant than buckskin, and Abram Enlow remembers how his brother John appeared on one occasion, as he came out in a new suit of buckskin, dyed green. In 1835 Abram Enlow came to McLean County with his brother John. Abram’s first experience was not pleasant, as the winter of 1835 and ’36 was very severe. He admired the fine prairies, which did, indeed, gladden the eye of a farmer, who had been used to grubbing stumps in Kentucky; but the severe winter made him return to Kentucky, which he did in 1836. But after two years more among the stumps of Kentucky, he turned back once more for Illinois. He married, September 27, 1838, Louisa Harry. On the first of October, three days after his marriage, he started for McLean County, Illinois. His journey was a very pleasant one, though the season was dry, and it was sometimes difficult to obtain water. He camped out every night. The streams had no bridges, but during that season none were needed, as the creeks were nearly all dry.

Soon after Mr. Enlow’s arrival he went to the land office at Danville, and entered eighty acres of prairie, and bought five acres of timber to fence his land. He lived at his brother John’s house and rented land during the first year. During the following year he began fencing and breaking ground, and in March he moved on his own place. It was a remarkably early season, for by the middle of March the cattle went out on the prairie to feed. Game was plenty. The little prairie wolves could be seen in the morning playing around after they had killed his sheep the night before. The wolves frequently collected together in packs, and often came in the night up close to Mr. Enlow’s door. Mr. Enlow was on one of the “ring” hunts, which were so popular among the settlers. The pole was put up at Normal, and they hunted towards it, killed many deer and wolves, had a social chat and went home. One deer, which was killed, was tied to a pony’s tail and dragged in to the pole.

Mr. Enlow settled in the West at an unfortunate time, when business was prostrate and grain commanded a very low price. He could sell his corn and oats in Bloomington for ten cents per bushel and take his pay in store good, and he could take his wheat to Pekin and get for it only thirty-five cents per bushel. When he came to Illinois he had only enough money to enter his eight acres of land, buy his five acres of timber, and purchase a few housekeeping utensils and a stock of provisions. When his stock of provisions was exhausted it seemed for a while a desperate matter to live. He first obtained three dollars a hundred for his pork, but afterwards a dollar and a half; and prices reached such and extremely low figure that the neighbors all clubbed together and sent their pork to Chicago; but then they obtained less than a dollar per hundred. Mr. Enlow sold his eighty acres of entered land for seventy-five dollars and acre. The timber land, which he first bought, is now covered with a second growth of fine trees. Mr. Enlow has had four children, but only one son and one daughter grew up to manhood and womanhood.

They are:

Samuel T. Enlow lives a few rods from his father’s house. Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Myers, wife of George Myers, lives about two miles southwest of her father’s. Mr. Enlow is six feet and one inch in height, is very muscular and works hard. He has a sanguine complexion, rather a bald head and large, honest eyes. He is a very pleasant man to talk to, and takes an interest in the early settlement of the country. Mrs. Enlow is a very pleasing and intelligent lady. Shrewd observers say that the success of many men is due to the influence of their wives, and it is very probable that the influence of Mrs. Enlow has contributed very materially to her husband’s success in life.

Mr. Enlow lives in the southern edge of Twin Grove in Dale township, is very comfortably situated, and bids fair to enjoy a long and happy life.

Notes for Salathiel Fitch:

The following biography of Salathiel Fitch is reported in “Early Fleming County, Kentucky Pioneers” by Wade Cooper, Economy Printers, Ashland, Kentucky, 1974, pages 31-32:

 

Salathiel Fitch was born in the State of Mayland, October 1, 1764.  He migrated to Kentucky with his wife and one child in the year of 1788.  The conveyance used by him in the great part of his long and tedious journey was a sled; but on reaching the Ohio River, passage was procured for the rest of the way in a flat boat/  Landing at Limestone, now Maysville, late in the month of May, a temporary home was found in one of the neighboring forts.  The season was so far advanced that other emigrants, who came at the same time, thought it not advisable to attempt making a crop; but Mr. Fitch determined to try the experiment.  Accordingly, on the 27th of May, he began to clear away the forest, with his wife piling the brush, and on the 27th of June, he planted two acres of corn and pumpkins.  The soil being rich and fresh, these two acres yielded an abundant supply for the family.  About the year 1794, Mr. Fitch settled in the unbroken forest, three miles north of where the town of Flemingsburg now stands, and continued to reside there until his death.

 

In the year of 1810, having been recommended by a majority of the Magistrates of the county, he was commissioned by the State as a Justice of the Peace of Fleming County.  This office he held until the year of 1826, when as the Senior Magistrate of the county, he according to the law as then existed, he became High Sheriff.  Having executed the required bond as Sheriff, Mr. Fitch–as was the custom of the law in those days–sold the office and John Stockton became the purchaser.

 

Although the subject of this sketch was a decided member of the old Whig party, acting and voting with it from earnest convictions that it was right, he was also a true patriot.  In the war of 1812, he was past the age to perform the duties of a soldier, but his eldest son, Henry, went into the Army and was a member of Captain Bott’s Company.

 

Mr. Fitch had joined the Methodist church in his native state of Maryland and as soon as he was settled in his western home, he sought to avail himself of the religious privileges afforded by the denomination of his early choice.  With this in view, he gave the ground and was instrumental in building the church where Fitch’s Chapel stood for a number of years.  This was one of the first Methodist churches built in Fleming County.  Mr. Fitch was for many years a steward in his church and beneath his roof the pioneer preachers ever found a cordial welcome.  Among those who partook of his hospitality, we mention the name of Bishop McKendree.

 

Mr. Fitch was the father of eleven children, all of whom, but one, lived until they were grown; and his son, John, occupied the old Fitch homeplace for many years.  Mr. Fitch was a man of good judgement and of sound integrity, and as an officer, whether in the church or state, he was faithful to his duties.  He died in 1842, having been a good man and a useful citizen, and having left his moral impression upon his family and upon the neighborhood in which he lived.

(The following is an excerpt from a manuscript titled “NOTES ON THE FITCH FAMILY,” by James Peyton Fitch, 1887-1963, son of Judge Peyton Dudley Fitch, 1854-1923. It was probably written about 1910, around the time of the death of James P. Fitch’s paternal grandmother, Delila Anne Fitch. She was the grand-daughter of Salathiel Fitch whom she would have remembered from her youth. The following is the first half of the manuscript. The second part of this story is attached to the profile of Delila Anne Fitch, q.v.)

 

In the early part of the 18th century, there lived in Baltimore several representatives of an old family which had moved to America among the early settlers and had assisted materially in hammering out a civilization from the untamed wilderness which prevailed at the landing of the Calverts. Salatial (sic) Fitch was the middle son and fourth child of the family of Fitch. He was a tall, powerfully built man with curly brown hair and a finely cut set of features, inherited from ancestors, Scotch on the one side and English on the other.

 

In the town, which was then little more than a village, lived a girl by the name of Lavinia (sic) James. Girl and boy friendship ripened into love and these two specimens of a hardy race decided to cast their lots together. They were united in marriage according to the good old customs of colonial days, the husband receiving capital sufficient to start him in mercantile pursuits in a small way. The bride received the usual gifts of clothing and household equipment. These comprised only a small part of their fortunes. They were endowed by Nature by far more valuable and serviceable in their future than the things of intrinsic value. Each had a perfect physique and came of a race to which disease was a stranger. Also, they possessed that quality invariably possessed by people destined to build a nation — foresight. The man, by some peculiar instinct, had a desire to go away where there was room for men with big natures to expand to capacity. Disposing of his effects, he purchased a team of strong young horses, and set out for a land of promise, namely Kentucky. Passing through a gap in the Alleghany (sic) Mountains, they embarked upon the Ohio River and floated along that picturesque stream looking for a place to select a home.

 

The same old hills of blue grass met their eyes that meet the eyes of the river excursionist of today, and bespoke very little of the labor and resources which came to the colonists later. Landing at a government trading post in what is now Fleming County, Kentucky, the land appealed to them and the little body of adventurers decided to make this their home.

 

Salatial Fitch was the first white man to live outside of a fort in the state of Kentucky. In the course of a few months, others settled about his place. There was plenty of land for all and each of the families began to strive for a home. Salatial put in a crop upon which to live the first year and succeeded in helping out the larder by his skill with a rifle. To go into detail would be to relate a series of inevitable reverses which came to all pioneers. The following year, Salatial Fitch took his team and drove back to Baltimore where he procured a load of provisions and articles for trade with the colonists and Indians. In the wagon box he placed a false bottom under which and between the double bottom thus formed he placed silver dollars that they might be concealed from bandits and Indians, for the Red Man had learned that money was of use to him at the trading posts. This money was used to purchase his stock of goods which he brought back with him. These trips to Baltimore became annual and his business grew with the country.

 

Children were born and grew to manhood and womanhood. The family took up some land, bought more and at the time of the War of 1812 were fairly wealthy. (See conclusion at profile of Delila Anne Fitch.)

 

(All comments appearing in parenthesis have been added by P. G. “Pete” Normand, Jr.)

 

(NOTES ON NAMES: Notice that the author, James Peyton Fitch, renders the name of his ancestor as “Salatial” instead of using the accepted spelling “Salathiel.” This may be because he had no written record at hand from which to copy the exact spelling. James P. Fitch was a highly literate writer. In 1910, he was twenty-three years of age, a college graduate and a school teacher. If he was simply spelling the name phonetically as he heard it from his paternal grandmother, then the name was probably pronounced “sah-LAY-shul,” and not “sah-LAY-thee-al.” Legal records in Fleming County, Kentucky, render the name “Salathiel,” and his gravestone is spelled the same way. If a Fitch family bible survives, it would be interesting to see how the name is recorded there.

 

Also, notice that he spells the name of Salathiel’s wife “Lavinia,” and not “Lavina,” as it is often rendered elsewhere. Courthouse records in Fleming County use both spellings, but her gravestone renders it as “Lavina.” In this transcription, I have retained the spellings used by the author, although I don’t have a copy of the original manuscript, but only an old typewritten transcript.

 

The author uses the variant spelling “Alleghany,” instead of the more commonly accepted French spelling “Allegheny.” The spelling for this word varies with the source and time period. In Maryland, Allegany County uses the English spelling with an “a” instead of an “he”. Further south, the French spelling of “Allegheny” is the more commonly accepted version of the word, although “Alleghany,” with an “ha”, also appears in several locations. Again, I can only assume that the typewritten transcription I have is faithful to the original manuscript.

 

(NOTES ON SALATHIEL FITCH’S ROUTE: The family tradition, as recorded by James P. Fitch, was that Salathiel Fitch passed “through a gap in the Alleghany Mountains” and “embarked upon the Ohio River and floated” down that river, “landing at a government trading post in what is now Fleming County, Kentucky.” The most notable thing about this route is that it does not follow the more commonly travelled “Great Valley Road” which connected to the “Wilderness Road,” blazed by frontiersman Daniel Boone in 1775, some twelve years before Salathiel Fitch and his fellow Marylanders went to Kentucky.

 

In 1755, during the French & Indian War, Daniel Boone had served as a wagon driver under British Major-General Edward Braddock. It was during that campaign that Boone first heard stories about the Kentucky wilderness. But, it wasn’t until 1767 that he made his first trip into Kentucky. In 1773, Boone led about fifty settlers, including his own family, into Kentucky in an unsuccessful attempt to establish a settlement there. Conflicts with the Delaware, Shawnee and Cherokee in Kentucky led to Dunmore’s War between the Virginia colony and the Indian tribes. The following year, the Shawnee finally relinquished their claim to Kentucky. In 1775, after the Cherokee sold their claims to the land, land speculators created the Transylvania Company, and hired Boone to blaze a trail through the Cumberland Gap up into Kentucky.

 

This trail, which later became known as “The Wilderness Road,” ran from Fort Chiswell in southwestern Virginia, through the Cumberland Gap, thence north and west into Kentucky. In Virginia, it joined The Great Valley Road which extended to the northeast through the Shenandoah Valley up into Maryland and Pennsylvania, roughly following the route of present-day Interstate Highway 81. The Great Valley Road, also known as “The Great Indian Road” or “The Great Warrior Path,” began as a buffalo trail, and had been relinquished by the Indian tribes in 1744. As a result, it had become a well-traveled route for many German and Scotch-Irish immigrants heading southwest into Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia. It was therefore a natural route for settlers seeking to take Boone’s route through the Cumberland Gap into Kentucky.

 

But Boone’s route was not yet a wagon road in 1787 when Salathiel Fitch and the other Marylanders went west to Kentucky. Boone’s route was not officially named “The Wilderness Road” until 1796 when it was finally widened enough for Conestoga wagons. And the Marylanders from the Baltimore area were not simple Scotch-Irish settlers travelling on foot and horseback. They were travelling by wagon and carrying valuable household goods, implements, and other furnishings. A bit of research reveals what would have been the most commonly travelled route west from Baltimore, through the Allegheny Mountains to the Monongahela River, a major tributary of the Ohio River.

 

Thirty-two years earlier, in 1755, during the “French and Indian War,” as part of an aggressive move against the French garrison at Fort Duquesne (at present day Pittsburgh), Major-General Edward Braddock led a large British contingent who built a wide road from Bethesda, Maryland, west through through Frederick, Maryland, and Winchester, Virginia, to Fort Cumberland, Maryland. From there the road continued through the present-day locations of Frostburg and Grantsville, Maryland, crossing into Pennsylvania along the route of present day U.S. Route 40, to Jumonville and north. General Braddock was not simply blazing a trail through the wilderness. He was slowly building a military road wide enough to accommodate the horse-drawn wagons and artillery with which he intended to assault the French Fort Duquesne.

 

Thirty-Two years later, in 1787, Salathiel Fitch, driving a heavily loaded horse-drawn wagon and travelling with his wife and baby daughter, would have likely taken a route west out of Baltimore, through Frederick and Hagerstown, following what later became known as “The National Road,” the present-day U.S. Route 40. This route, following Braddock’s Road from Cumberland, Maryland, to Jumonville, Pennsylvania, became known as “The Cumberland Road,” but it departed from Braddock’s Road south of Jumonville and veered to the west, passing through present-day Uniontown and going on to Redstone Old Fort, later Brownsville, on the Monongahela River.

 

One of the earliest places on the Monongahela river where westward travelers could buy newly built flatboats was at a place called “Redstone Old Fort” which had been founded in 1759 on the location of an old Indian mound. Indian mounds of this type were referred to by settlers as “old forts.” This is now the location of the town of Brownsville, Pennsylvania. An historic marker there identifies it as the location of flatboat construction beginning in 1780. It would have been the first place that Salathiel Fitch and his family would have come to that could have constructed for him a flatboat large enough to carry the weight of his wagon, horses and household goods.

 

From there they would have floated down the Monongahela River to Fort Pitt. Fort Duquesne had been abandoned by the French many years before. This is where the Monongahela joins with the Allegheny River, those two rivers forming the Ohio. A good account of a flatboat journey from western Pennsylvania down the Ohio River is given in James Michener’s book “Centennial.”

 

James P. Fitch’s narrative states that Salathiel Fitch, his wife and daughter, landed “at a government trading post in what is now Fleming County, Kentucky.” They most likely landed at the same place where several other Maryland families settled that same year. These families constructed “Stockton’s Station,” a stockaded settlement. I don’t believe this was a government trading post at that time. It may have been the location of a government trading post in later years, and that information may have been confused by the author.

 

The author’s claim that Salathiel Fitch “was the first white man to live outside of a fort in the state of Kentucky” is also erroneous on its face. Whoever the first white man in Kentucky was, he undoubtedly lived “outside of a fort” even if he built one later. As stated before, Daniel Boone had an unsuccessful settlement there in 1773, and he had first heard of Kentucky from others as early as 1755. However, there may be some grain of truth in the statement. The author, James P. Fitch, was probably simply recording what he remembered of a family story that he had been told by his grandmother, or he was attempting to accurately remember the family story as he had heard it in his youth.

 

An accurate version of the story might be that Salathiel Fitch was the first white man to settle outside of a stockaded settlement – a “fort” – in what is now Fleming County, Kentucky. If the other Marylanders had all lived in the fort that was Stockton’s Station, and Salathiel Fitch had elected to build his own cabin outside that stockade, then he may very well have been the first white man to do so in what later became Fleming County. This would have been a bold move on his part as Indian depredations were still a very real threat in the last two decades of the 1700s. Two years later, in 1789, Robert Stockton and a friend were attacked by Indians while on a hunting expedition nearby. Robert Stockton was killed and his friend was badly wounded.– P. G. “Pete” Normand, Jr.; College Station, Texas.)

Afflictions sore long time she bore,

Physicians were in vain;

Until the Lord, He heard her mourn

and eased her of her pain.

She faltered by the wayside,

she could no longer roam;

and the angels came from Paradise

and took our mother home.

In most documents Christopher Columbus League is listed by that name.  However, in some census years, in his death announcement, and on his tombstone, he is listed as Columbus League.  In a newspaper clipping, which is discussed later in this paper, he is listed as John Christopher Columbus Thomas Jefferson James Madison Bonaparte League.  I suspect that he was born John League and that the rest of the name was added, either as a joke, of sorts, or, because he thought it gave him some prestige.  There are three reasons that I believe his first name may have really been John, besides the fact that his name shows up as John in the newspaper advertisement mentioned above.  One is that he named his first son John.  The second is that his father was also named John.  The third is that in the 1833 Baltimore City Directory, he shows up as John League, Cordwainer.

 

Regardless of his exact given name, I have chosen to refer to the subject of this report as Christopher Columbus League, because that is how he is listed most often.

 

Christopher Columbus League’s Birth Date

According to two papers of indenture, which are discussed later in this paper, Christopher Columbus League was born on August 29, 1804.  However, his birth date is recorded differently in different places.  The table below shows Christopher’s age, and implied birth date as it shows up in various documents.

According to the above table, Christopher Columbus League was born between 1800 and 1810.  I believe the dates shown in the Orphan’s Court records from 1815 and 1821.  The dates match exactly, August 29, 1804, and they are the only records that give his exact birth date.  Also, these documents were generated in the earlier part of Christopher’s life, when his age should have been more easily determined.  It is a lot hard to make a mistake of 5 years, for example, in an 11 year old, than it is in someone who is 60.

 

Christopher Columbus League’s Birthplace

By most accounts, Christopher Columbus League was born in Baltimore, Maryland.  However, other accounts differ.  The table in appendix 1 shows where Christopher Columbus League was born, according to various census years, as reported by his wife and children.

 

For some census years, people’s birth locations were recorded only as foreign born, or US born.  The other census years that do record the state, or country, where one was born, state the following about Christopher Columbus League’s birthplace:  nine (9) of them state that he was born in Maryland, three (3) of them state that he was born in Pennsylvania, three (3) of them state that he was born in England, and one of them states that he was born in Scotland.

 

It is interesting that the 1850 census, with the information most likely provided by wife Catherine, states that Christopher Columbus League was born in Maryland.  Then, in 1860, Catherine, presumably, reported that Christopher was born in Philadelphia.  It is impossible to be sure of the reason for this discrepancy.  However, one possibility is that the enumerator, in 1850, could have asked Catherine where Christopher was from and she replied Maryland, versus Philadelphia, since he spent most of his life in Maryland.  In 1860, the enumerator might have asked Catherine where Christopher was born, and she replied Philadelphia, since he was born there, even though he did not stay there for very long.

 

Christopher’s oldest child, Elizabeth, reported on the birthplace of her father in the 1860, 1870, 1880 and 1900 census.  In the first three census’ Elizabeth reported that her father was born in Maryland, the USA and Maryland, respectively.  These locations are consistent.  However, in the 1900 census Elizabeth reported that her father was born in Pennsylvania.  I have no idea why she switched her story in this last census year.  But, this is the second time that Christopher is being reported as being born in Pennsylvania.

 

Christopher’s oldest son, John Jacob, reported on the birthplace of his father in the 1860, 1870, 1880 and 1900 census.  John reported that his father was born in the USA in 1860 and 1870, and that he was born in Maryland in 1880 and 1900.  So, John’s responses contain no discrepancies.

 

Christopher’s daughter, Mary Louise reported, in the 1870 census, that her father was born in the USA.  In the 1880 census she stated that he was born in Maryland.  In the 1900 census she stated that he was born in Scotland and in 1910 she stated that he was born in Germany.   I do not believe that Christopher Columbus League was born in Scotland, or Germany.

 

Christopher’s daughter, Alice Virginia, reported in the 1870 census that her father was born in the USA.  In the 1880 census, she reported that her father was born in Germany and her mother was born in England.  This is probably a mistake.  She probably meant to say that her mother was born in Germany and her father was born in England.  In the 1900 census she reported that both of her parents were born in Maryland.

 

Catherine League, Christopher’s youngest daughter, reported in the 1880 census that her father was born in Maryland.  In the 1900 census she reported that he was born in Pennsylvania.  This is the third time that he is being reported as born in Pennsylvania.

 

The family of my Great Grandfather, Thomas Howard League, Christopher’s youngest child, reported in the 1880 and 1900 census that Christopher was born in Maryland.  However, in the 1910 and 1920 census, Thomas’ family reported that Christopher was born in England.

 

All of these different results make it difficult to determine where Christopher Columbus League was really born.  However, it is possible that Christopher Columbus League was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to parents who were born in Maryland.  Christopher and his family then moved to Maryland while Christopher was still a young boy.  Below are some facts to support this theory.

 

Christopher Columbus League’s father, John, appears in Baltimore through 1804.  In the 1804 Baltimore City Directory, John League is listed as the late Inn Keeper of Fell’s Point.  This does not mean that he was dead, but rather that he was no longer the Inn Keeper of Fell’s Point.

There is a John League living in Philadelphia in 1810, according to the Pennsylvania census for that year.  John League does not show up in Pennsylvania at any other time.

Christopher’s father, John League, appears to have died about 1814.  Sarah League (John’s wife and Christopher’s mother) is listed as a widow in the 1814/1815 Baltimore City Directory.

 

My theory is that John and Sarah League, and their family, moved from Baltimore to Philadelphia around 1804.  Christopher Columbus League was born in Philadelphia on August 29, 1804.  The family then moved back to Maryland sometime after 1810, but before 1814; possibly after John League died.  Christopher then spent the rest of his life in Maryland.

 

I suspect that when Christopher Columbus League was asked by his children where his family came from, he might have, sometimes, replied that the family originated in England; which I believe is the case.  On other occasions he could have replied that he was born in Philadelphia.  On still other occasions he could have replied that the Leagues are from Maryland.  There would be truth in all of these answers, so the family could have conceivably believed that their League roots included links to Philadelphia, England and Maryland.  This could account for the three different answers given to the census takers.  These were not educated people; their answer could have varied, as I have stated earlier, depending on how the census taker asked the question.

 

Regardless of where he was born, Christopher Columbus League spent most of his life in Maryland and his ancestors have been in Maryland going back to, at least, 1680.

 

Christopher Columbus League’s Pedigree

My belief is that Christopher’s parents were John League (Oct. 1, 1766 – about 1814) and Sarah Fowler (1765-Dec. 8, 1853).

 

Christopher Columbus League’s mother was named Sarah.  Sarah is buried with Christopher at Baltimore Cemetery in the same grave site as he.  The name on her burial records is Sarah Kesler.th  The newspaper article announcing her death reads as follows: On Thursday, 8th instant, Mrs. Sarah Kessler, in the 88th year of her age.  Her friends and relatives are requested to attend her funeral on this (Friday) afternoon at two O’clock from the residence of her son (Columbus League) No. 319 Light Street.10   Since Sarah’s last name, at her death, was Kesler, she must have remarried after the death of her League husband.

 

A widow by the name of Sarah League shows up in the Baltimore City Directories in 1814-1816.  Therefore, I believe that her husband died around 1814.  On Sept 26, 1816, Sarah League married John Martin Kesler in Baltimore, Maryland.11  I believe that this Sarah League Kesler is the one buried with Christopher Columbus League.  So, I know that Christopher’s mother was Sarah and that she was born sometime around 1765.

 

According to the Baltimore City Marriage records, there are two Sarahs who married Leagues prior to 1804; the year Christopher Columbus League was born.  One of them, Sarah Spencer, married Thomas League on Dec. 31, 179212.  This Sarah died on Oct. 18, 1800.13  Therefore, she could not have been Christopher Columbus League’s mother.  The second one was Sarah Fowler, who married John League on May 6, 179014 in Baltimore, Maryland.  I believe this Sarah is Christopher’s mother and that John League was Christopher’s father.  Given that this theory is correct, Christopher Columbus League’s pedigree, on the League side, is as follows15:

 

John League (born Oct 1,1766)16, married Sarah Fowler (born about 1765)17 on May 6, 1790

James League (Feb 14, 173218 – Mar 21, 178119) married Eleanor Enloes (about 1736 – July 18, 1781) on May 2, 175920 at St. John’s Church in Baltimore, Maryland21

John League (Jan 17, 170322 – After 1752) married Mary Jean Noe (before 1707 – After 1740) in 1729 in Baltimore, Maryland23

John League (about 168024 – after 172025) married Elizabeth Millen (before 169026 – After 172027) on Oct. 31, 170328 in St. John’s Parrish in Anne Arundel County, Maryland29

 

I also believe that Christopher Columbus League had two sisters.  He may have had other siblings, but I have only identified the two.  In 1829 and 1831, according to the Baltimore City Directories for those years, there is a Frederick Price living at 25 Caroline St. in Baltimore.  Frederick Price married Ellen League on June 18, 1825.30   In 1817-1818 John and Sarah Kesler lived at the same address, according to the Baltimore City Directories.  Also, in 1833, there was a Cordwainer named John League living at this same address.  I believe this John League is John Christopher Columbus League and that he, his mother and his sister Ellen are all living together at 25 Caroline St..  Additionally, in the 1850 Maryland census, Sarah Kessell is living with William O. Johnston and his wife Sarah A. Price Johnston.  I believe that Sarah A. Price Johnston is the daughter of Frederick and Ellen Price and that she is caring for her grandmother Sarah Kessell (Kesler).  I have concluded that Ellen League Price is most likely the daughter of Sarah Fowler League Kesler, and the sister of Christopher Columbus League.  According to the 1850, 1860 and 1870 census’, Ellen was born about 1809 in Baltimore, Maryland.  So, she would have been younger than her brother Christopher Columbus League.

 

Christopher Columbus League also had a sister named Ann Maria League.  Ann Maria League was married to Walter Rite on Sept 21, 1813 in Baltimore, Maryland.31  In 1814-1815, according to the Baltimore City Directory for that year, Walter Rite and his wife Ann Maria League Rite were living with Sarah League at 102 Bond Street, Fell’s Point in Baltimore, Maryland.  I have concluded that Ann Maria League was the daughter of Sarah Fowler League Kesler.  I have also assumed that Ann Maria was born somewhere around 1790.  This would have made her about 23 years old when she got married.  This would make her older than her brother Christopher Columbus League.

 

Christopher Columbus League’s Early Years

Christopher Columbus League was bound out to tradesmen on two different occasions.  The first time was in April of 1815.  I believe that Christopher Columbus League’s father, John League, died around 1814-1815.  So, Christopher was probably bound out, as an orphan, shortly after his father died, because his mother, Sarah, was unable to provide for him.  The information copied from those proceedings follows:

 

Christopher C. League an orphan boy of the age of Eleven years the twenty ninth day of August next is bound to John Kennedy to be taught the art of a Sail makers to be taught to read, write and do arithmetic as far as the rule of three and at the separation of his time to have customary free dues32.

 

The “Rule of Three” was something of a standard phrase in the nineteenth century.   In his 1859 autobiography, Abraham Lincoln wrote, “Of course when I came of age I did not know much. Still somehow, I could read, write, and cipher to the Rule of Three.”  The rule of three was a historical form of a proportion. To cipher to the rule of three for 3, 9, and 2 is to complete the phrase “3 is to 9 as 2 is to ___,” with the answer being the quantity 6.

 

Christopher Columbus League must not have liked it at the Sail Making shop of John Kennedy.    I found the following in a newspaper article from Feb 7, 181633 which was less than one year after Christopher was indentured to Mr. Kennedy:

 

Six Cents Reward.

Ranaway from the subscriber on the 6th inst. an Apprentice Boy to the Sail Making business, named John Christopher Columbus Thomas Jefferson James Madison Bonaparte League -about 15 years of age. Had on when he went away, a blue cloth roundabout jacket and trousers; a yellow waistcoat, and a tarpaulin hat– The above reward will be given if brought home. I forewarn all persons from harboring or carrying off said boy, at the utmost peril of the law.

 

John Kennedy

feb.7th d4t

 

The term, feb 7 d4t, means that the advertisement ran starting on Feb 7thth and ran daily for four consecutive days.

 

I have read that many boys who were bound out to artisans were mistreated.  One only needs to read any of Charles Dickens books, particularly Oliver Twist, to see how young boys were sometimes treated by their masters.  So, I am not surprised that Christopher Columbus League ran away.  However, I find it very interesting that the reward offered for his return was only six cents.  I realize that six cents was worth a lot more in 1816 than it is today.  But, in the same newspaper there are several advertisements offering rewards for runaway slaves.  The rewards for runaway slaves are typically about $150, while the rewards for runaway indentured servants are about 6 cents.  The drastic difference is confusing to me.  I realize that an adult male slave who was to be “owned” for his lifetime and whose progeny were “owned” for their lifetime was worth a lot more than an indentured servant who was “owned” for, typically, seven years.  But, I am nonetheless surprised by the drastic difference.

 

Christopher Columbus must have found somewhere else to live for a while. He was free for about five years.  Perhaps he moved back with his mother during this time.  However, he was bound out a second time in June 1821.  The text from these indenture papers follows.

 

Christopher C. League an orphan boy of the age of sixteen years the twenty-ninth day of August next is bound unto James L. Smith to be taught the trade of cordwainer to be taught to read, write and arithmetic as far as the rule of three to be found in sufficient meat drink washing lodging apparel and when free customary freedom dues34.

 

A Cordwainer was a maker of high quality shoes as opposed to a plain boot maker. Originally he was a person who worked in cordwain, a high quality leather from Cordova, Spain.  In the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries, fine boots for the upper classes and nobility were not just to cover the feet; they were a fashion statement. They were so well made that often they can be found in wills being passed down to sons.  Cordwainer boots were made for special purposes, one style to ride to the hounds, another style for an officer’s military uniform, another style to visit his lordship or go courting, and another style for general travel.

 

It would seem that Christopher Columbus League completed his service to Mr. Smith.  For the rest of his life, Christopher is listed in the census and the Baltimore City Directories as either a shoemaker, or a Cordwainer.

 

Christopher Columbus League’s family and life

Christopher married Catherine S., whose maiden name is unknown, sometime around 1825 in Baltimore, Maryland.  I base this estimated marriage date on the fact that their first child, Elizabeth, was born in November 1826.  With no good methods of birth control, and no real desire, for most people of the time, to execute birth control, it seems reasonable to assume that their first child would be born sometime around the first year of their marriage.  Additionally, Christopher would have been 21 years of age in 1825 and his, bride, Catherine would have been around 25 years of age.  This seems like the age where they would have, most likely, married.

 

Christopher first shows up as an adult in the 1831 Baltimore City Directory.  In that directory he is listed as a Cordwainer living on the East End of Hamburg Street.  One point of interest is that 100 years later, in 1931, his great grandson, my father, William Robert League, also lived on Hamburg Street.  They didn’t move very far in 100 years.

 

Appendix 2 contains a table showing all of the entries for Christopher Columbus League and his wife, Catherine, in the Baltimore City Directories. The addresses for Christopher Columbus League show that he lived in South Baltimore in the area around what is now known as Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.  In the last three years of his life, Christopher changed his occupation from shoemaker to sweep master.  I suspect that he still worked for the same company that he worked for as a shoemaker, but was tasked with cleaning up after the other shoemakers by sweeping the floor.  I would guess this is because he became unable to continue making shoes due to constraints associated with growing older.

 

Note, in the appendix 2 table, that I have included the entry in 1833 for John League, Cordwainer, living at 25 Caroline Street.  I believe this entry is for Christopher Columbus League.  At one time, Christopher Columbus League did claim that his first name was John.  Plus, Christopher’s mother and sister lived at this same address around this same time.  So, I am convinced that this entry is for Christopher Columbus League, in one of those rare moments when he used his given name of John.

The Ashop (Asaph) you have, would be the father of my Asaph Theodore Enloe. He was also an Asaph T.

Enloe, he was born in 1796 married Sarah Kennedy in 1819 and died in 1883.

I have found the information on my Asaph which is as follows: Asaph Theodore was born in 1829 and

married Maranna C. (possibly Catherine) last name most likely Allen but not 100% sure, born in 1832 or

1833.

Asaph Theodore’s brothers and sisters were:

Robert H. born abt. 1826,

Sarah Ann born May 5, 1828,

Abraham H. “A.H.” born abt. 1826,

William Byars born abt. 1827,

Alford P. born abt. 1832, and

Christopher Columbus born abt. 1833.

The children of Asaph Theodore and Maranna C. Enloe were

James A. born abt. 1851,

Robert W. born abt. 1854,

Sarah E. born abt. 1856,

Fletcher H. born abt. 1862,

Lucy A. born abt. 1866,

Allen Henderson born 8/26/1869,

Benjamin born abt. 1870 and Martha “Mattie” G. Enloe born abt. 1873.

The birth years on these children were taken from several census reports so the year is within a half a year to a year. This is probably more than you wanted to know but maybe someone else will see this that needs the information. Thanks

 

Notes for Sarah Kennedy:

Enloe Family Forum – message #611

Quoted in part:

“Deeds show Abraham and son Aseph T. bought Macon Co. property in 1838. N.C.

Census 1840 shows Sara Kennedy a widow.

Land belonging to Aseph T. and Sara Kennedy was sold at sheriff’s auction 1839, along Tuckaseegee River.

Abraham Enloe recovered 300 acres for a bid of $l.00.

Sara Kennedy moved her family to Alabama including son: Aseph T.

Apparently Abraham Enloe didn’t approve of this move for he left the wife and children of son, Aseph T. in

his will: $1.00.”

Notes for Nancy P. Enloe:

Hello Clyde,

Nice to hear from you. The original source information on Nancy Enloe & Thomas Thompson came from a

manuscript prepared by Col. Thomas A. Enloe, who spent many years researching the Enloe/Enlow/Inlow

families before he 1st published his manuscript in 1947. The entries for Nancy Enloe & Thomas Thompson are

simple with no added detail. Nancy was the daughter of Abraham Enloe & Sarah Edgerton and was the 2nd of 16

children born to this couple, she was born in Rutherford County, NC in their home near Puzzle Creek.

William C. Enloe, another descendant of Abraham & Sarah as am I, sent me a little more information on Nancy

& Thomas. This is why I now have them listed as Nancy P. Enloe & Thomas Andres Thompson. You should ask

Bill where he found this added information, he lives in North Carolina and is much closer to some of this old

source information.

It is interesting to see the family group information from the census report. Since there are 2 small children, 3

months of age and born in different states, it would appear there are at least 3 different married couples in the

group. Have you been able to sort all this out? Other than that, this very well could be the family of Nancy P.

Enloe, the daughter of Abraham & Sarah Edgerton Enloe.

Do you have any other information on these people? Every time I have run searches on Nancy & Thomas I

came up empty, it would be nice to know more about their lives and events they experienced.

Best regards,

Bob Enloe

My reason for contacting you is that Abraham E. and Asnhey THOMPSON (above) were our 2nd GGrandparents.

If you compare the information concerning Thomas THOMPSON and spouse Nancy P. above

with your information, the probability is quite high that they were one and the same couple. I would be very

interested in learning of your source references pertaining to their marriage. Thank you for your time.

Promoted to Full Private on 30 November 1861 (Reduced to ranks)

Received a disability discharge Company A, 25th Infantry Regiment North Carolina

on 04 June 1862; (reason – killed in action)

B. M. Enloe is listed as a member of the Confederate Army, Company A of the 25th infantry regiment, Yancy

County Volunteers of N. Carolina.

Following is a partial history of the 25th’s action in the war:

At this time, the regiment was eleven hundred men strong. On November 14, 1861 the Secretary of War,

Judah P. Benjamin, issued orders changing the name of Colonel Clingman’s 15th North Carolina Regiment

to the 25th North Carolina Regiment of Volunteers.

Colonel Clingman was promoted May 17, 1862 to the rank of Brigadier General and was twice wounded

during the war.

In March of 1862, U. S. General Burnside’s coastal expedition threatened New Bern, North Carolina. On

March 14, 1862 the 25th was ordered from Grahamville, South Carolina to the defense of New Bern, but they

did not arrive into the area until after the city had fallen. The troops retreating from New Bern were

assembled along with the 25th at Kinston, North Carolina, some 34 miles inland from New Bern. The

combined forces were placed under command of Brigade General Robert Ransom, Jr. The 25th used a camp

The Ancient Enloe Family

97

eight miles away from Kinston at Gum Swamp as their base of operations for their future activities in that

state.

By this time, the 25th Regiment had been placed in General Bushrod Johnson’s division. The Virginia

Peninsula Campaign began in March of 1862 and extended into July of 1862. This was the first great struggle

for Richmond and the first major confrontation of the great armies being formed. The U. S. forces in these

operation were commanded by General McClellan who proved himself rather inadequate. The C. S. forces

were commanded by General Joseph E. Johnston who was severely wounded in this campaign and who later

in the war was to relieve Bragg after the Battle of Missionary Ridge.

About the first or second week of June 1862, the 25th North Carolina Regiment was sent from North Carolina

to Petersburg, south of Richmond and assigned to General Holmes Division.

The 25th left Petersburg on June 24th for Richmond with orders to report to General Lee. They arrived in

Richmond before daylight and were assigned to General Huger who ordered the 25th to engage the enemy

along the Williamsburg Road.

At the ‘Battle of Oak Grove, Virginia (also known as the ‘Battle of King’s School House) which was the first

of the ‘Seven Days Battle’, the 25th held the enemy from 11a.m. till sunset, repulsing three severe assaults by

the enemy. Throughout the day, the 25th was subjected to sharpshooters, musket fire and shelling. About 6

P.M. the 25th was subjected to heavy artillery fire with shell, grape and cannister, but they still held their

position. Confederate batteries finally silenced the U. S. artillery.

During this battle the 25th, with 1,100 men, drove 3,000 Yankees, under the commands of Hooker and

Kearney from the field of battle in the rear of Shearn’s burnt house.

The 25th always charged with loud Rebel yells. Many of the enemy were reported to be drunk during this

battle. General Ransom states “that the 25th North Carolina Regiment, engaged in battle for the first time,

behaved admirably and with unwavering gallantry”. The 25th was under fire several times during the next

five days.

On July 1, 1862 the last of the ‘Seven Days Battles’ of the peninsula campaign took place at Malvern Hill,

Virginia.

Between 2 and 3 P.M. the brigade left the Quaker Road and were placed, by General Huger’s orders, in a line

of battle 1 1/4 miles from the belt of woods and a stream. They were under severe artillery fire until 5 P.M.

By this time the entire battle was under way and General Ransom’s Brigade was placed into action. They ran

to the field of battle and were thrown into action by General McGruder’s orders. The 25th went to the aid of

another North Carolina Regiment, the 35th, commanded by Colonial Matthew W. Ransom (brother of

Brigade General Robert R. Ransom, Brigade Commander), which had suffered heavy losses and both of it’s

commanders had been wounded. The fire was so severe, the 25th had to fall back. During this charge,

Colonel Rutledge, commander of the 25th, was stunned by a shell exploding almost in his face. The second

in command, Lt. Colonel Pettway was killed. The 25th then reformed with other North Carolina regiments

with 200 yards of the enemy batteries. They charged to enemy at dusk with loud Rebel yells and advanced to

within 20 yards of the enemy guns. The musket and artillery fire was so intense that the 25th, along with the

rest of the brigade, had to withdraw from the field. Darkness came and the ‘Battle of Malvern Hills’ ended.

Casualties from General Ransom’s Brigade (5 regiments) during the battle were as follows: 69 killed, 354

wounded, 76 missing (total 499 casualties).

Following comment received from William C. Enloe’s e-mail:

Benjamin Matt. enlisted Henderson Co. age 53, May 15, 1861. Mustered in as corporal, was reduced in rank

in Nov-Dec, and discharged June 2, 1862 (by reason of burial), he had been reduced in rank by reason of

“imbecility”

(this data from the Encyclopedia of N.C. Troops).

(note by RBE, there must be an interesting story for this event!)

Thomas Jefferson, a son of Benjamin Mattison, also enlisted May15, 1861 at age 24, he was wounded at

Malvern Hill Va. (hip and thigh) released Appomattox 1865.

Another son, Lucius became a Lt., I sent you an article on him.

Another son, James was in the 7th Batt. Macon Co. Cav. age 23 1863-1864.

Benjamin Mattison had three sons go to war.

Partial Civil War History follows as a reference for that time period:

The first major campaign of the war began in February 1862, when the Union general Ulysses S. Grant captured the Confederate strongholds of Fort Henry and Fort Donelson in western Tennessee; this action was

followed by the Union general John Pope’s capture of New Madrid, Mo., a bloody but inconclusive battle at Shiloh (Pittsburg Landing), Tenn., on April 6-7, and the occupation of Corinth and Memphis, Tenn., in June.

Also in April, the Union naval commodore David G. Farragut gained control of New Orleans. In the East, McClellan launched a long-awaited offensive with 100,000 men in another attempt to capture Richmond.

Opposed by General Robert E. Lee and his able lieutenants Jackson and J.E. Johnston, McClellan moved cautiously and in the Seven Days’ Battles (June 25-July 1) was turned back, his Peninsular Campaign a

failure.

At the Second Battle of Bull Run (August 29-30), Lee drove another Union army, under Pope, out of Virginia and followed up by invading Maryland. McClellan was able to check Lee’s forces at Antietam (or

Sharpsburg, September 17). Lee withdrew, regrouped, and dealt McClellan’s successor, A.E. Burnside, a heavy defeat at Fredericksburg, Va., on December 13.

The battle of Malvern Hil, near Richmond, VA, is described in the history section of this regiment, which is where Benjamin’s son Thomas Jefferson Enloe also fought and was wounded.

Belle (dau) 26; (Belle is most likely Elizabeth named in 1870 census–they gave short names in census)

Willis (grandson) 9 mo.

It’s interesting that Scroop and Wm. Watson both married an “Angel”.

Anyway, Wm Watson Enloe had a son named William Hannible who married Martha Hyatt.

In 1870 Wm Watson was living in Ocono Lufty; in 1880, his census shows him in Jackson Co. Qualla

Township.

Wm. Hannible also lives in Jackson Co. Qualla Tsp.

In 1880, Wm Hannible is 34, Martha is 20. Son Edgar is 5 and son Charlie is 2.

Wm Watson and Wm. Hannible are both buried at Campground Cemetery.
