I have the following partial will for John Enochs from a book I did a few years back on my Enochs line. I don't know who the "John, son of Samuel Bryan" is as there are no Johns in what little data I have for Samuel. Sr. I show the children of Samuel and Elizabeth Enochs as follows:
Samuel, Jr., Morgan, Margaret, Nancy Ann, Susannah, and Elizabeth.

Samuel later married Elizabeth McMahan something like seven more children. I'm told that his will listed only daughters?

All the data I have shows Samuel as the fourth child of Morgan Bryan and Martha Strode.

"On June 10, 1764, John "Farmer being very sick and weak" wrote his will naming wife Margerate, sons: David, Gabriel, Isaac (under age and left to the care of his mother and Samuel Bryan who may bind him out, but when he comes of age, he gets all the land). Others named: James Bryan, Henry Zively, and John, son of Samuel Bryan. The executors were Margaret and Samuel Bryan and the witnesses were Samuel Jones, John Jones, and Enoch Enochs. The will was probated 9 July, 1765. (Book 2, p. 24, Rowan County Records, Salisbury, NC) An inventory of the estate was returned by Margret Enockson and S. Bryan on 8 October, 1765.

"Margaret, widow", was married to Benjamin Rounsaval on 3 December, 1774 in Rowan County, North Carolina.

Samuel Bryan's brothers Morgan, Jr., James (John Enoch's son-in-law), and Joseph helped to establish Bryan's (Bryant) Station, Kentucky and his sister Rebecca married Daniel Boone (1734-1820). The Enochs, Bryans and Boones were closely associated in Rowan County."

NOTE: The Rowan County Register, Vol 8 (1993), page 1865, has an article on the early history of the Bryan family and a piece on a Samuel, Jr. who married a Mary Hunt in Rowan Co. on 5 October, 1775. They had among others, sons William and Abner..
