"The Ennises of Baldwin County are of Scotch-Irish descent. The first to come
over were from Scotland and settled in North Carolina. E. Nathaniel Ennis came from North Carolina and settled in Hancock County, Georgia, about 1775. He had one son by his first marriage, Charles Ennis, born in 1800. He married young and settled in East Baldwin, about seven miles from Milledgeville, in about 1818. He became a good farmer, operated a saw mill, grist mill, and gin, and served Baldwin County for twenty years as sheriff. His wife was Miss Ella Morman of Wilkinson County, and was related to the Bells of that county. There were born to them fourteen children, ten boys and four girls. The boys were P. M., E. N., Sr., W. R., Erasmus Bell, George Troupe, Thaddius, Benj. T., Chas. I., Chas. II., and Francis Ennis. The girls were Annie Alice, Smithie Ann, Sarah Jane, Nancy Bell Ennis. Sheriff Charles Ennis died in 1873."
