Jim, Thanks for the email.
I have a rough idea about the family line. But to date I have not found any living relatives.

My mother was born Edith Ellen Enos August 7, 1924, Toledo, Oregon, d. August 13, 1983, Boise, Idaho, to Lester Bush Enos and Irene Eugena Wessel.
Lester Bush Enos b. August 19, 1894 Toledo, Oregon. d. July 07, 1954, Portland, Oregon.

His parents were William Ferrel Enos was born October 3, 1854 in Missouri, died October 16, 1929 in Toledo, Oregon. He married Amanda Ellen Fouts December 3, 1874.

William Ferrel Enos was born to
David Enos b. ? in Mississippi, d. July 2, 1889 Depot Slough, Lincoln County, Oregon, and Nancy Watts b. 1825 d. November 29, 1896, Depot Slough, Lincoln County Oregon.
(Toledo, Oregon area)

David Enos was born to
William James Enos d. 1847 and Elizabeth Standlee d. 1848.

Parents of William James Enos are
Nathaniel Enos b. 1789 New York d. May 28, 1871,Quaker Hill, Elk Twp., Warren Co., PA and Sarah "Sally" ? b. abt. 1800 in Canada, d. 1867 Quaker Hill, Elk Twp., Warren Co., PA.

Information below was obtained from Phyllis Branstrom and passed along to me by another cousin.

Nathaniel enlisted at Erie, PA as a private in Captain McFarland's Company,
22nd Regiment, U.S. Infantry on 19 Jun 1812 at the age of 24. He was wounded on
27 May 1813 at Fort George, Upper Canada. He was hit by a musket or rifle ball
in the right hip, fracturing his femur and resulting in partially depriving him
of the use of his leg. He was discharged 19 June 1815 with 3/5 disability and
a pension of $4.80 per month. He was granted Warrant #8629 for 160 acres of
bounty land in Fulton County, IL.

Military records describe him as five feet five and one half inches tall
with dark hair, blue eyes, and dark complexion.

In 1834 Nathaniel and Sarah Enos bought ninety-four acres on Quaker Hill
in Elk Township, Warren County, PA. 9 December 1837 Nathaniel applied for a
total disability pension. A letter with the request stated that he was a poor
man with a large family to support. He stated he had moved to Pennsylvania be-
cause of the high price of land in New York.

I am hoping that this will connect with someone. I am most interested in William Ferrel Enos and his children. There is a Enos cemetery some where near Walport, Oregon. It is on private property and has not been taken care of. I am told that some of the headstones were stored in a old chicken coup.
