Husband's General Notes

William Ennis was born in 1804 in Burke County, North Carolina, the third child born to Zachariah and Susannah (Bradshaw) Ennis. When he was thirteen, the family emigrated to Kentucky and settled in Adair County. He was reared to adulthood on the farm of his father near the Cabin Fork of Russell Creek close to the settlement of Glensville. He wa s first married about 1825, to an as yet unknown named spouse. Speculation by family historians point to the theory that she was an Aaron, a daughter of Abraham Aaron, or a Vinson, a daughter of William and Lucy (Guthrie) Vinson. She was either a sister to George Aaron, who married William's sister, Elizabeth, as well as Susannah Aaron who married William's brother, John, or a sister to Daniel Vinson, who married William's sister, Annie William Ennis and his family, along with the Vinson family, emigrated to the state of Illinois in 1826. He was living in the household next to his brother-in-law, Daniel Vinson, in Tazewell County in the 1830 U.S. Census. The family lived in Illinois for several years until a bout 1840. They were not found in the U. S. Census for either Illinois or Missouri in 1840, but a son was born in Missouri about 1840. William Ennis is next found in Washington County, Arkansas, November 21, 1846, when he consented to the marriage of his eldest son, Cornelius Dayton Ennis.
The first wife of William Ennis had died sometime between 1840 and 1845. He was married second to Mary Ellen Burr about 1845, supposedly in Hot Springs, Arkansas. She was born in New York state in 1827. Famil y states that she was in Hot Springs visiting family when they met, al though what is now Hot Springs did not exist at that time. William wa s definitely in Washington County, Arkansas, in 1846 and Benton County , Arkansas, in 1848. He was not found in the 1850 U. S. Census for Ark ansas. He was a member of the Little Flock Baptist Church in Benton Co unty, Arkansas, in July, 1848, when he was named as a replacement delegate to the Baptist Association meeting that year.
In August, 1850, Brother William Ennis was granted a letter of dismissal with full fellowship and License from the Little Flock Church to "preach and Exhort where God in his providence may cast his lot." A descendant of his son, Benjamin Ennis, stated that William was a circuit-riding minister. He moved his family to Montgomery County, Arkansas, wh ere he was a minister. They lived in Mazarne Township in 1860. The fam ily was not found in the 1870 U.S. Census but he was enumerated in the 1880 census for Garland County, Arkansas, with his wife, Mary, and two youngest sons, Gaston and Israel.
William Ennis died about 1884 (his marker in the Sexton Cemetery says 1880) in Garland County, Arkansas. He was said to have had seven children by his first marriage and seven children by his second union. Two of the first seven were married while four of the second seven were married. He had four known children by his first wife: Cornelius Dayton Ennis, Hugh Logan Ennis, Elisha Harrison Ennis, and H. S. Milburn Ennis.
He and his second wife had seven children: Adeline Ennis, November 6 , 1846, married Albert Chase Ussery, and died April 8, 1925; Benjami n Burlingame Ennis, December 1849, married Martha Rawls and Sarah Eliz abeth Echols, and died March 25, 1914; Angeline Ennis, February 9, 185 2, married John Reeves and Edward Mitchell Pate, and died December 1, 1931; Seaborn Shadrick Ennis, October 1, 1856; Emond Granville Ennis , November 1, 1858; Gaston Meyers Ennis, April 27, 1867, married Marth a Elizabeth Cunningham and Ida Elizabeth Neighbors, and died April 23, 1939; and Israel Alonzo Ennis, October 16, 1871, married Vida Nalley West, and died April 26, 1965.


The following letter was written by Adeline (Ennis) Ussery to her cousin, Willis Lyons Ennis, a son of Elisha Ennis, in 1923:

1923

This is my statement as I have been teached about my Ennis generation. John Ennis, my great great grandfather came from Dublin, Irland, back in the colonial days. He had one son named Jim Ennis. He had eight children. Their names was Martin and John and William and Jim, Zachariah, and Jesse and Jermiah and Elizabeth, one girl. Next is our family, Zachariah's family.
Now I will comment on Zachariah, our grandfather. He was Jim Ennis' son and he was John Ennis' son who come from Dublin, Ireland. Zachariah had 8 children name Anna and Mary and Elizabeth Arons. Boys, James and William and Zachariah and John and Elisa. Grandmother Ennis her name before marriage was Anna Bradshaw. I think grandfather was borned in Virginia. I don't know where grandmother (I don't be sure) borned. She came from Ireland, too, but where she was borned here or there, I don't remember.
Your grandmother Terry was a Ennis, Elizabeth Ennis's daughter. Your grandmother's mother was our father's aunt, Willis. Your grandmother Terry was Barbara Ennis before she married. Wasn't she of the 4 generations same as your father and mine.
Was 11 children in your father's family. There was 14 in my father's family. Seven in the first family and seven in the last family. There was 6 married, 2 of the first children and 4 of the last family. Willis aren't a hearing you. I know it will take time and trouble. I just write because I have some where to write to. I got a letter from Dow th e other day. He said he was well but Miles had been sick but better. You said you couldn't barely understand about William Ennis.
You know your uncle William was my father and his uncle William my father's uncle was my grandfather Ennis's brother James Ennis, brother James Ennis's son.
