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.

Hi Myrtle - I am descended from Eli Baggett and his 2nd wife Sarah Francis "Sally" Holman who is believed by many to be the daughter of Benjamin and Dicy. I have not found any primary sources to firmly establish the connection between Sarah and Benjamin and Dicy but I have tons of Ancestry DNA matches who claim to be descended from John Calvin Holeman/Holman so I believe that I am in the correct tree. The 1820 Census for Robertson County, Tennessee, for Benjamin Holeman shows him having daughters with one of them being the right age to be Sarah. Ever see any records with a mention of Sarah "Sally"? Thanks.

Hi Myrtle! If you click on the link to show our genealogical connection, it says that we both are fourth cousins and that we both are descendants of Charles Roberts Sperry. If this meets your approval, I would love to connect us on our family tree. I was pleased to see this.

Hi Myrtle -- What's your relationship to Margaret Peggy (Offill) Underwood (abt. 1739 - abt. 1808).

Hi Myrtle. I live in Brisbane, Australia but was born in Leeds, England. William Doc Holman is my Great great grandad's cousin's son. Walter Holman born in Leeds in 1490 is my direct ancestor, through my mother's family the Harrisons.

Cheers, Des

Hi Myrtle, I was watching my feed and saw that you are doing a great amount of work on the Ennis name. I have started a Ennis One Name Study in hopes of not only breaking my brick wall, but to connect other Ennis researchers together. I have had it for a little while now, but not much has been done with it. If you would like to join simply add this at the top of biography.. Most of the Ennis I have come across have been northern Ennis. Yours seem to have migrated more South as mine were. I have only gotten as far as my 2x Great grandparents and I know very little about them. James Ennis 1832 I think born in North Carolina and came to Mississippi after he married Louisa last name is still a bit of confusion. Would love to have you a part of our study. Misty

Hmm..I don't recall either; probably something about the Langston ancestors. I am also a direct descendant of Pharaba and found somewhere that Ann Vann was an ancestor and Ann Vann's mother, Sarah 'Suki' was a full blooded Cherokee Indian. Wondered if you had found that too or knew anything more about it. I think that was my question!!

Thank you for information Not sure why it shows me as manager . This info up to the Campbell's and Reynolds were there when I connected my family. Please feel free to correct . Do you possibly have any resources to give me a start on researching him? Again thank you. My resources came from other family members which we have found to be incorrect on other people also.

Hi, Myrtle. Thanks for your note on my profile.

Anna (Davis) Kime isn't a relative of mine, and I'm not much interested in her profile. I was merely fixing a glitch that I happened to notice while looking over some records for people named Davis.

Hi, Myrtle. It's a pleasure to meet you, but I'm afraid I can't be much help to you on

The only reason I edited that profile is that I happened to notice (on a Surnames list) that some biographical details had mistakenly gotten entered in the "Nicknames" data field. I hope I didn't mess you up when I moved the details into the biography section of the profile.

I don't have any information on this family and I have next to no experience researching in North Carolina.

PS - You've done impressive work with your genealogy.  :-)

Hi Mandane

Thank you for joining WikiTree. As a WikiTree Mentor I am available to answer any questions or help solve any issues you may be having.

How To Use WikiTree is a good starting point and the Help Index is an important place to find out how to do most tasks.

Do you have Royal Ancestors? They are already here on Wikitree! Rather than create duplicate profiles for them, please contact the EuroAristo Project to discuss connecting your family line to their profiles.

Feel free to ask me via my profile page if you have any questions.

how to add a second wife depends on what you've got already. If you have the husband's profile done, on his profile, click the Edit tab. To the right of the screen will be where parents, spouse(s), and children are listed. There should be a link to "Add Spouse" over there. Click that, and on the page that opens you should have a choice of entering a WikiTree ID (if the 2nd wife already has a profile) or entering her information to create a new profile. Either way, look toward the bottom - I think there's something where you can check or uncheck about children (important if the profile already exists & has the kids attached to it). When you add children, there should be a similar bit at the bottom, asking if xx spouse is the father/mother. Cheers, Liz

p.s. I've found the best way to make progress in WikiTree is to post what I know and connect to existing profiles when I find them. In other words, create profiles for the folks you just described (after checking that they don't already have WikiTree profiles). That gives a place for collaboration & also that you can post questions from (e.g., you can create a profile for the wife, using the last name you think is correct, but then post a question to G2G using the "Ask question about" button to see if anyone knows whether or not she was previously married). Cheers, Liz

Hi again!

I’m glad you found us. I just confirmed you as a member (once you sign the Honor Code, you’ll be a full member – aka a Wiki Genealogist). An important aspect of WikiTree is providing sources for information (even if it’s just “Aunt Louisa told me in 1984...”) – my profile page has a link to Sources Resources, where I’ve tried to provide an overview of source information.

Give G2G or me a holler if you get stuck on anything, and thank you for joining our collaborative tree. Remember that our mission is to build a global tree with just one profile per person, so please look for duplicates before adding a profile.
