Descendant of the Ennis family group that was in Albemarle County, Viriginia and Amherst County, Virginia. In 1805, John Ennis, my ggg grandfather with wife Mary Ann (Whitlock?) and most of their grown children and families (including my gg grandfather George Ennis and first wife Mary Frances Campbell who is my kinswoman through our Campbell lines), trekked to Warren County, Ky and settled. I do not know my Ennis ancestry past my ggg grandfather, would appreciate any help with taking my Ennis line back further. Around 1830, John Ennis, Jr and most of his large family move from Warren County, Ky to Lafayette County, Missouri. Also joining him was his sister Sarah T Ennis and her husband Axel Heath Page and their large family. Tandy Campbell and his large family also joined in the Missouri migration--he was the brother of Mary Frances Campbell Ennis wife of George Ennis and the brother of Rachael Campbell Ennis wife of John Ennis, Jr (Rachael died in 1822 in Warren Co, Ky--John Ennis, Jr made the trip as a widower and remarried once he was in Lafayette Co, Mo) Elza Martin and his wife Alcy Dews and their 3 children made the trip to Lafayette Co, Mo--Elza was the son of Pleasant Martin and Elizabeth "Betsy" Ennis, dau/of John Ennis, Sr. George Washington Ennis and his young wife Jeanetta Whittington and daughter Elvira made the trip to Lafayette Co, Mo--GWE was was the youngest son of George Ennis and first wife Mary Frances Campbell.
George Ennis' oldest son was Cornelius W Ennis aka Neely--he was an excellent carpenter and moved about extensively in Ky, Tn, Ala, Ark, Tx and Mo--marrying 4 different ladies having children by the first 3 but not by the 4th that is known of. I would like to know where Uncle Neely died and was buried . One of his kin said they thought if he died in Arkansas that he was probably buried in a certain cemetery--so I set him up a findagrave memorial in that cemetery. He has descendants in Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, Texas, Missouri and out west. I am sure a very interesting book could be written on our wandering carpenter.
I am still tracing the family of Elvira "Ellie" Ennis who married James C. Davis in Lafayette Co, Mo. I have 3 children that I have not be able to trace George, Anna, Eliza--found one son in Chicago and another son and daughter in Ohio where their father James C Davis is buried and another daughter in Oklahoma. It appears Ellie and her husband divorced and were living separately in 1880 in Lafayette Co, Mo--I lost track of Ellie between 1870-1880. Ellie was the oldest daughter of George Washington Ennis and Jeanetta Whittington.
I am now hunting for the only son of Elza Martin and Alcy Dews, William Payne Martin, who was in the 1850 census for Lafayette Co, Mo. Lost track after that.
I am a descendant of Benjamin A. Holeman and Dicey Crabtree of Robertson Co, Tn. If any one has info on their descendants--would love to add it to mine. Also descendant of Ephraim Roberts and Nancy Harris of Robertson Co, Tn.--have no info on the Harris though they are thought to be from N C as most of Robertson Co, Tennessee early inhabitants. His father Charles Roberts, Jr and wife Fannie Langston settled in Logan Co, Ky which was a bordering county to Robertson Co, Tn. Tracing the Roberts descendants.
Am descended from many old families of White County, Tennessee--Broyles, Rhea, Sperry, Norwood, Haile, England, Mills, Hill, Brown, Mitchell, Whiteside, Matlock, Rockhold(Roccold), Williams, Scoggin.
