Re: HINSON VILLAGE IN CHESTER COUNTY PA
In Response To: Re: HINSON VILLAGE IN CHESTER COUNTY PA ()
Just wanted to update this and state that I've found some connections between my ENOS family and the GLASCO/GLASCOW family written about in this book.
My ancestor - Nathan Bailey ENOS, I've recently discovered additional brothers of his:
John ENOS (1817-?) - was already identified via Chester County school children records
Brother Granville Lee married Harriet GLASCO a daughter of Samuel GLASCO/GLASCOW who was mentioned in the book as being a Hinsonville resident and having immigrated to Liberia in 1859. So this is the connection I found between these two families.
Of all the ENOS brothers - George, Lee, Thomas, and Jacob all enlisted in the USCT, as did a majority of all their known sons born between 1835 and 1850.
Seemingly their mother lived with Lee on the 1850 Census in East Nottingham, Chester County, PA. There was a "Jane Enis" in his household who was labeled as 60 years old at the time. So this negated my circumstantial thinking regarding a connection to the Hinson family.
I did finish reading this text and the information regarding the community was very interesting. Hopefully others who haven't read it but who are interested will check it out.
If anyone has any additional information on the ENOS/ENNIS/ENIS/ENAS/ENUS family or the GLASCO/GLASCOW families any tips/sources would be appreciated.
