I am primarily studying your g-g grandfather's marble business. Most of his signed work appears in S Louisiana
He and his brother George B ran the business from Phil and ARdmore. Below I've pasted a paragraph from an ardmore personal history. I have other info I can give you, if yuo can send me an email adress. Glad to share!

Davis, William Watts Hart
????       History of Doylestown, Old and New from its Settlement to the close of the nineteenth
Century 1745 – 1900. Pp. 186-187. Intelligencer : Doylestown PA.

In 1825 Alexander Enochs, born in Philadelphia about where Girard College stands, came to Doylestown and opened a marble yard, having formerly carried on the business at Norristown. He remained here to his death, 1833 and was buried in the Presbyterian graveyard. His wife was Elizabeth Bartle of Barren Hill, Montgomery County, and she conducted the business some time after her husband’s death. His oldest son, Enoch, got the gold fever in 1849 and went to California as a pioneer, but returned after a brief stay and settled in Louisiana, where he established himself in business, In 1861 he returned to the north to await the issue of the Civil War, settling in Ardmore, Montgomery County. At the close of the Civil War he went south again, retaining his home in Ardmore, whither he returned and was appointed Postmaster by President Cleveland in his second term, and we believe is still living there. How many children Alexander Enochs had we do not know, nor when the widow died. The rest of the family removed to Philadelphia.
