. Sherrod first settled in Greenbrier County, Virginia by the time of his January 26, 1833 marriage to Esther Crookshanks Price. Esther Crookshanks was the daughter of John Crookshanks and Mary Cloverfield (1787 - John Kirk, surety for John Crookshanks & Mary Cloverfield). John Crookshanks was reported to be a Hessian soldier hired by the British to fight the Colonists. There is a record of a new adjutant to Lt. Col Campbell by the name of John Crookshanks, of the Queen's Rangers, who was "dangerously" wounded and taken prisoner, in 1781, at Georgetown. Although the Hession soldier story is not confirmed the wound at the Battle of Georgetown matches with other information gathered on John Crookshanks revolutionary war service. John Crookshanks came from Germany, but after the Revolutionary War, he made his home in America. His daughter, Hester (Esther) Crookshanks married Tillery Price on 6 January 1827 in Greenbrier County – their family can be found in the 1830 Greenbrier County, VA census. The same William Irvin Ennis notes that alluded to family fortune in Scotland (from an interview with Sherrod Ennis, Jr.), also mentioned that Esther Ennis had at least 2 children by Tillery Price prior to her 1833 marriage to Sherrod Ennis, Sr.
Notes for SHERROD ENNIS: Sherrod, Jr., was a farmer. He was also a fine carpenter. Some of his furniture pieces exist to this day. During the Civil War, he served in the Home Guard.
Sherrod and Elizabeth had twelve children.
