Husband's General Notes

Zachariah Ennis was born in/about 1766 in either Augusta or Albemarl e County, Virginia colony, one of eight children born to James and Ann a (Moles) Ennis. His grandson, Willis Lyons Ennis, stated "Zachariah E nnis who was born in Augusta Co., State of Virginia, in the year of 17 66, and who died in Madison County, State of Ark. 4th day of Nov, 1844 ." His father fought in the American Revolution while Zachariah was a small boy. "James Ennis is one and same James Ennis who in the mon th of February 1776 enlisted in the 9th Regiment of the American Revol utionary Forces from the County of Augusta, State of Virginia."
He was a farmer and planter. Zachariah was reared to adulthood in Virg inia. As a young man, he emigrated with the family to the Morgan District of Burke County, North Carolina, before 1790. They were enumerated in the first U. S. Census in Burke County in that year. The family s ettled on a farm near the Catawba River in the vicinity of Lovelady Ford. The family were members of the Lovelady Church. Many years later, this area of Burke became a part of Caldwell County. Zachariah was married to Susannah (Anna) Bradshaw about 1798 in Burke County, North Carolina.
Anna was born about 1770 in Burke County, North Carolina colony. They settled on a farm near the Catawba River. The proceeding deed was found among the papers of Willis Lyons Ennis:

February 9, 1808

Know All Men By These Presents: That I, Zachariah Ennes, of the County of Burke and State of North Carolina, am held and firmly bound unto William Connolly of the County and State aforesaid, in the full and just sum of One Hundred and Twenty five pound Current money of thi s state, to which payment will and truly be made upon the twenty fift h day of Dec., next ensuing. I bind myself, my heirs, Ens & C, in the final sum of Two hundred and fifty pound of like money. In Witness whereof, I have here unto set my hand and seal this 9th day of February, 1808.
The condition of the above obligation is such that if the above bound Zachariah Ennes should make, or cause to be made unto William Connol ly or his heirs, a good and lawful Right and Title to a certain tract or parcel of land, lying and being in the County of Burke on the wat ers of Smokey Creek, bounded on Abraham Hawshaws, deceas'd line, and Wm. Ryals line, Thos. Largins' line, Andrew Sides' line, and Jacob Haws haws' line, containing 191 acres, with peaceable possession by the first day of March next, then the above obligation to be void: Other wise to remain herein stated before. In Power & Virture, In Witness Where of I have set my Hand & Seal this day and day which I have written .

Rec'd of Zachariah Enous Jr. the sum of one dollar & 62 cents his fee in full for recording his Deed from Zachariah Ennis, Senr, August 3rd 1830.
John W. Garrett D.C. & C.


After Anna's death in 1815, Zachariah moved with the Bradshaw family to Adair County, Kentucky. He received a land patent for two hundred ac res on Cabin Fork Creek near the settlement of Glensville in 1817. Family historians do not state that Zachariah ever remarried after the death of Anna, but a female in his same age range was living in his household in the 1830 U. S. Census for Adair County, Kentucky. He lived near Cabin Fork Creek from 1817 until 1839. He paid personal taxes in Adair County during his tenure there. A receipt for the recording of a deed to his son, Zachariah Ennis, Jr., was found among the papers of Willis Lyons Ennis:

An I.O.U. for fifty-five cents was also found in the papers of his gra ndson, Willis Lyons Ennis:

"$0.55, Due Clayton Miller fifty five cents. Augt 7th, 1833.
Gideon (his X mark) Bradshaw
Zachariah (his X mark) Ennis, Sr.

In 1839, Zachariah Ennis, Sr., moved with his children, Elisha Ennis and Annie (Ennis) Vinson, and his niece, Barbara (Ennis) Terry, to Madi son County, Arkansas. They settled near Huntsville on War Eagle Creek where Zachariah died in 1844. He was buried in an unmarked grave


General Notes for Child William ENNIS

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.
