Ennis Family

Ennises married Israels. Mary Angeline Ennis married Leander W. Israel. When he died in the Civil War, she moved to Mississippi with her parents. It is believed that she moved back some time later. Leticia Ennis married Leander's brother John Whitmore Israel. He also died in the Civil War and she also moved to Mississippi with her parents. She later married a man named Smith. Later Ennises married into the Anthony family as well.

The Ennises are something of a mystery. They lived in South Carolina, Cherokee County, Alabama and Winston County, Mississippi, but there are not a lot of records to document what they did, who they married or where they died.

Descendants of John Ennis
Generation No. 1
1. JOHN1 ENNIS
Notes for JOHN ENNIS:
The earliest record in South Carolina for Ennis is a land grant for 50 acres on the North side of the Broad River
by George, the Second, King of Great-Britain,France, and Ireland, to John George Enis; signed by His
Excellency, William Henry Lyttlelton,Esquire--Captain General on the First Day of February, 1756. There is no
hard evidence that John George Enis was related to John Ennis of our family. Both are from the same area of
South Carolina,Union District. More research is needed to see if John George is yet another generation to our
family
Child of JOHN ENNIS is:
2. i. GEORGE2 ENNIS, b. Abt. 1770, Union County, South Carolina; d. Bet. 1836 - 1838, Cherokee
County, Alabama.

From ancestry.com ID: I42359274
John owned several hundred acres five or six miles east of Union, South Carolina, on the Brown River, which is a
tributary of the Broad River. There are several records of land transactions from South Carolina. John and Nancy
Ennis had four known children, Ann,Sarah, James and George. About 1830-1835, John, his wife and two sons
moved to Benton County, now Cherokee County Alabama. John died there in 1837 or 1838.( Probate records of
Union District, South Carolina 1839 confirm this). Apparently, all the family moved to Alabama, but Sarah stayed
in South Carolina. She was the executrix of John's will, according to the probate record . There is no mention of
her being married. At this time, there is no mention of a burial site for John or Nancy. Probably, both are buried
in Alabama. Nancy's surname has not been discovered.

From ancestry.com ID: I40858886
George Ennis was born in Union County, South Carolina about 1794. He married Jane "Jennie" Powers in South
Carolina in 1828. He and his brother, James, moved to Cherokee County, Alabama about 1835. He and his wife
,Jane, list seven living children in the 1850 Alabama census. An eighth child is listed in the 1860 Alabama census.
His father's name was John and his mother's Nancy. Although his wife is listed on the burial records and has a
marker, George's name does not appear on the Pleasant Hill Methodist Church in northern Winston County,
Mississippi.
1850 census record: George lives with his wife Jane (called Jennie) in Cherokee Alabama, right down the road
from James Ennis, of approximately the same age. George and Jennie have 7 children. They have moved from
South Carolina to Alabama sometime between 1838 and 1842, based on ages of chlidren and where they were
born. It appears that his brother James went to Alabama earlier.
1860 census record: George lives with his wife Jane in Cherokee, Alabama, At home are John, Elender, George
W. and Armara F., aged 10 to 21. If these are all his children rather than some grandchildren, it would mean that
Jennie had a child at the age of 49. John W. Israel and Letitia live nearby. The names in the neighborhood have
changed quite a bit since 1850 and James no longer lives nearby.
1880 census record: George lives with his son George in Winston County, Mississippi, and is an 86 year old
widower. Jennie is not listed in the reord.

Dyersburg, Tennessee; m. CAROLINE ?.
Notes for JESSIE C. ENNIS:
This child appears on the 1850 census in Cherokee County, Alabama. The name could also be
Jefoe, the handwriting being ornate and not terribly decipherable. This could be Jessie, based on
age, but the middle character of the name goes way below the line and way aboe the line and is
consistent with P written in other names.

Unknown21. He married NANCY ?. She was born 1810 in South Carolina.
Notes for JAMES ENNIS:
According to the ages and places of birth for children given in the 1850 census, it appears that James and Nancy
Ennis moved from South Carolina to Cherokee County, Alabama, between 1830 and 1832. He then moved to
Mississippi. In both cases, it looks like he moved before his older brother George, but George then followed him.
(This assumption is based on where children were born, according to census records.)

In the Winston County, Mississippi, marriage records, there is a record that reads:
Ennis, JamesMorrison, ElizabethOct 11, 1841
This makes me wonder if James Ennis married a second time, but I cannot substantiate it.
In 1860, a James Ennis bought 40 acres of land in Choctaw County, Mississippi.

In 1860 census, his family lived in Elyton post office district, Bethelehm precinct, Jefferson County, Alabama.
His neighbors are mostly listed as Gouldsby and Shoemaker. A child named Emily L. is listed as 8 years old,
which would be the age of Liza.
I have found other soldiers who died at Gilmer Hospital, Chatanooga, Tennessee, in muster rolls on web sites
where people have researched particular units. People have also referenced Gilmer Hospitals in Marietta,
Georgia, and Texas.
According to Weldon , he died of wounds after the battle of Stones River.
A record of his burial exists on the Watkins List, a list of Civil War dead at the Chattanooga military cemetery
created in 1812. The listing says
Israel, Leander W. Company E, 19th regiment.

Her wedding license was issues September 16, 1874. The performing person is listed as Whifield Anthony.

Found on cemetery list at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~timmons/newhome.html and
ftp://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/ok/cherokee/cemeteries/nwhomefull.txt
Joseph H. Caldwell, 1853-1918, which is at variance from his date of birth in other places.
He was found by some to be peculiar. If there was a singing school, we had to be there. He liked to hunt and
fish, but sometimes would pout for a week without Grandma knowing why. Told by Martha Jane Caldwell
Payne, his daughter, to Weldon.
12
From handwrtten notes provided by Weldon to Linda Smith Williams (quoting Jenny Payne): Aunt Jennie
remembers being with him the day he died at home, near Locust Grove, Oklahoma. He had "leakage of the
heart." On the morning of July 20, while she and Grandma Caldwell were with him, two neighbor men stopped.
One saw that J.H. couldn't last long and stayed with him. At 11:00 a.m., Joseph Harley looked at the clock and
said " I have about one hour left." Mama says that he died at exactly 12 noon.

Notes for BENJAMIN ALEXANDER CALDWELL:
Jenny Payne says he was buried on his 75th birthday.
He married Julia Ida Wheeler before the Caldwells moved to Oklahoma. Ben and Julie rented a
house near the family, who were living in the "McNair Place," a big two-story house (with pecan
groves) owned by an Indian family named McNair. (Jenny Payne, as related to Weldon ).
In the 1900 census, Benjamin and Juie live alone (without kids), between the Goolsbys and the
Spencers. A short distance away there are Rufus Nicholson, his wife, Rufus Linus Nicholson, and
Walter Hugh Nicholson and his family. This is not the house where they lived when their
grandchildren were growing up. This house was on Pleasant Grove Road, about 3 miles away
toward Edgewater. Eventually, after they moved from the house, Ben's brother Jim and his wife
Carrie moved there. The Paynes moved into the house across the road when they came back from
Texas and Oklahoma.
In the 1910 census, the following families live all in a row:
Andrew and Mary Angeline Wheeler
13
Richard J. and Jennie Wheeler
Kate Wheeler Glasgow and Bascom Glasgow
Frank C. and Retha Anthony Wheeler
Joseph A. and Bessie Wheeler
He should have been back in Alabama for the 1920 census, but I can't find a record of it. He had a
child born in Alabama in 1915, so he should have been in Alabama rather than Oklahoma in 1920.
The 1930 census has Ben and Julia with son Jim and daughter Alice in Jefferson County, Alabama.
Richard Jones Wheeler is listed just before Ben and Julia. Joseph Andrew Wheeler lives nearby
on that same side. Walter Goolsby lives on the other side, then James Goolsby, then John and
Nora Anthony. Ben owns his home, which is worth $6,000. He is a carpenter for a coal and iron
company. He is not a veteran. These census pages do not list the name of the road or the house
numbers.

Occupation: Carpenter, doing construction work for Tennessee Coal and Iron on their company

just before he retired.
Notes for JULIA IDA WHEELER:
She said that when they were in Oklahoma, the wind blew so strong that it blew the plants away as
fast as they could plant crops. She said people went crazy from the wind and its damage.
Her grand-daughter says: She did what all the pioneer women did. She sewed, kept house, kept a
garden, and cooked. Her grand-daughter says that she had such an imagination about cooking.
She knew how to take whatever was in the house and make a meal. If it was almost grocery day
and stores were low, she could still figure out a good meal. When everyone was starving and she
needed a quick meal, she would fry fatback, then cook sauerkraut in that same pan. She'd cook a
pan of cornbread while it was cooking, then put that out for lunch with buttermilk and home-made
jelly. (Her grand-daughter Julia Minerva was good at that too.) She sang "Bringing In The
Sheaves" while she mopped the kitchen floor.
Her great-granddaughter says: I remember her Folgers Coffee can. It sat next to her chair. I
guess she dipped snuff and spat into the can. As a child this fascinated me! I remember her as a
kind woman who appeared in my life every once in a while and then disappeared. I am gateful to
my mother for taking the time to write about her so we would all know something about her.

before Tom went on shift. This was a persuading factor in Grandma Caldwell agreeing to move to
Oklahoma, so her boys wouldn't have to work in the mines. Married (along with Zepha and Lee
Cooley) in Caldwell's front yard on Sunday before finally moving to Oklahoma.

Notes for JAMES LEE ENNIS:
Cleo's aunt Caroline objected to her marriage at age 16. Chuck Ennis says: She was virtuality disowned by her
family. They were able to overcome this adversity and lived in that area for a number of years. During this time
the older sister of James, Jenny, married Cleopatra's uncle William Cook. This caused some confusion to
nomenclature given to this couple. The two couples became close friends and spent a lot of time together. James
and Jenny,both being good Baptists, frowned on many pleasures,one being dancing. This didn't stop Cleopatra
and William from showing off their skills while the two Ennises frowned on the side lines.Later in life, Cleopatra,
after thirteen children, taught her twin daughters how to do the (Scothist) dance.
