Enos, W. E., p. o. West Eaton. - Joseph, Benjamin and David C. Enos, brothers and pioneers in this county, were sons of Col. Joseph Enos, a Revolutionary officer and patriot. They came from New Lebanon, Joseph to Eaton village (then called Log City), Benjamin to De Ruyter and David C. to West Eaton. Joseph's family is not now represented in the county. Benjamin reared two children: Samuel D. and Sena Ann. David C. settled on the hill in West Eaton and brought to the town a wife and two children. He was a soldier in the war of 1812 and served at Sacketts Harbor. In 1813 he married Mary Judson, by whom he had six children: Emilius J., Mary Jane, David C., De Witt C. (better known as Dr. D. C. Enos, professor of anatomy in Long Island College Hospital, and whose widow generously donated his splendid library to that institution), Annette Elizabeth (married S. W. Lawrence), and William Edwin. The latter, now one of the few surviving members of the family in the county, was born in De Ruyter, July 2, 1826, and since 1828 has lived in Eaton. He has engaged in various business enterprises and occupations, but since 1856 has been a farmer. On February 10, 1864. he enlisted in Co. D, 10th N. Y. Cavalry; was wounded April 7, 1864, at Kelley's Ford while trying to release his nephew from an unfortunate position under a fallen horse; was sent to Campbell Hospital for two months; transferred to Grant's U. S. Hospital at Willett's Point; was mustered out on account of disabilities September 13, 1864. He then returned to the farm he now owns and occupies. On May 14, 1848, Mr. Enos married Lucinda M. Barrett, who died August 13, 1898, and by whom he has two children: William Diverson and Edwin Newell, the latter of whom manages the farm in Eaton.
