MORGAN ENOS, M.D., was the third in a family of seven children, and was born in Cayuga Co., N. Y., April 23,
1804. His father was a native of Connecticut, and his mother of Massachusetts, and from this sturdy New England
stock the doctor derived the attributes which enabled him to win an honorable position as a self-made man. His
early days were spent in school, until he became of sufficient age to assist his father on the farm, when he only
attended school winters, working for his board. As soon as his education was sufficient to qualify him to teach,
he entered the arena as an instructor, at the same time continuing his studies. At the age of twenty he began the
study of medicine with Dr. Crowley, and afterwards studied with Dr. C. C. Cady, and attended lectures at Geneva
College. About 1828 he commenced the practice of medicine in Wayne Co., N. Y., and was married in that county,
at Huron, to Elizabeth Clark, daughter of William and Sophronia Clark, w.ho were also natives of Connecticut. Four
children were the fruit of this union, and all are now living. In 1837 the doctor and his wife removed to Michigan,
remaining in Benton township until the fall, when they located in Pipestone township, where the doctor followed
farming and continued in the practice of his profession. His death occurred Sept. 24, 1868. Dr. Enos was a man
universally respected and honored, and many friends mourned his loss. He was a Whig in his early days, and eventually
became a Republican. He represented his district one term in the State Legislature, and also held numerous township
offices. He was for some years supervisor of Pipestone township, and was its first clerk. Mrs. Enos outlived her
husband ten years, and died Oct. 14, 1878. She was in every respect an estimable lady The religious views of Dr.
limos and his wife were liberal. Two of their children are married. The oldest now Mrs. Webster resides on the
old homestead, and her sister Juliet makes her home with her. The latter causes the accompanying portrait of her
father to be inserted in this work.
