The origin of the Ennis branch of this research is believed to be Scotland.  At this point, the evidence is only verbal and has yet to be proven.  There is a lot of research available on the internet on various Ennis branches but an absolute link across the seas cannot be made at this time.  There are several stories that provide potential leads for further research.

One story concerned the widow of Captain Innis of England. Mrs. Ennis had married a man named Dunn in Virginia, after her husband, Captain Innis, drank poison water in Gibraltar and died. Captain Innis had left his wife and family to carry on in the new world, alone.

Melanie Ennis shared an abstract she found from "The King's Passengers to Maryland and Virginia", by Peter Wilson Coldham.  In September of 1766, among the list of Felons to be transported from London to Virginia on the ship "Justitia", under Capt. Colin Somervell, was a George Innes who was to transport himself.

Sir John and his son James Ennis emigrated from Ireland in 1738, settled in Virginia for a while, then ended up in Burke County, North Carolina.  This line is further looked at within this documentation.

Ennis descendants, Patti McLaughlin and J. T. Mayes, share similar versions that "currier" John Ennis (born 1695 in Ireland), arrived at the port of Boston, from Dublin, on the 25th of June 1716 on the ship "Globe". John settled in Amherst County, VA and died in 1762 Goochland County, VA.  This branch is covered further in this text as a trail is followed to Warren County, Kentucky.

Another tale... It has been passed on that three Ennis brothers left Edinburgh Scotland for America leaving behind sister, Jane[1]. Jane was reported to have been over 90 years old when she died in the early to mid 1800's. This family lore is shared by Ennis cousin, David Ranzy Wood of New York. David's information comes from notes written by William Irving Ennis (grandson of Catherine Ennis—daughter of Sherrod Ennis, Sr.).

Another version of the inheritance story…  Ennis descendant, Ron Anderson, states that the Ennis inheritance passed from descendant, Gilbert Innes of Canada, to Jane as the last surviving member of this branch of the family.  The father of Jane was George Innes (who had 5 children)—the fortune originator is said to be William (William Innes left Scotland and settled in Gloucestershire to marry around 1720).  Additional correspondence concerning the search for this elusive Ennis inheritance is provided in this text.

The focus of much of the Ennis research in this text is in Virginia and West Virginia.  The Ennis name is not very common in the Virginia and West Virginia records that I have seen. One difficulty I have in the search is the number of variations in the spelling—I find Eanes, Enis, Innes, Ennis, Ines, Enos.  Despite name rarity there are a few records I came across that have not linked to the primary line of this research that begins with William (Billy D.) Ennis.

The earliest information I have on the Ennis ancestry of this research begins with George Ennis, believed to be the father of our known Ennis forefather, William (Billy) Ennis. George reportedly immigrated to Fredericksburg, Virginia, from Edinburgh, Scotland. The verification on the link from George to William is only verbal, at this time—cousins Melanie Ennis and Patty Ennis Coons have both shared that their parents related to them the family connection.

The first probable sign of William (Billy D.) Ennis is in the Stafford County (adjacent to Fredricksburg County), Virginia tax list.  In 1787 and 1789, William Innis is a white male over 21 with no dependents.  It was after this time frame that William Ennis began his family.

Through miscellaneous records, documentary evidence is available to confirm William Ennis as an ancestral grandfather.  One record is a Nelson County, VA Deed of Trust, discovered by Loretta Midkiff and Carol Beattie that names the wife of William as Fannie.  Taking this further, Melba Purkey discovered that William Ennis married Frances Martin on 27 Jan 1795 in Albemarle County, VA.  Additionally, another Deed record and the Will abstract of Sherrod Martin, verifies the Martin and Ennis family ties.

Information provided by various Ennis cousins relayed an interesting accounting of William (Billy) Ennis family information passed down through the years. After arriving from Edinburgh, the Ennis family settled on the Rock Fish River in Nelson County, VA. They had a large southern estate and a great number of slaves to operate it. Through some misfortune, the William Ennis family lost their wealth through bad debt and scattered prior to the Civil War, settling in different areas. The four known sons of William were John, James, Marshall and Sherrod.  John is said to have settled in Bowling Green, Kentucky, James in Kanawha County, West Virginia, Marshall in Bath County, Virginia and Sherrod in Greenbrier and Fayette Counties, West Virginia.

The oldest known son of William, Marshall Ennis, lived his entire adult life in Bath County, Virginia with his wife Mary Nally Ennis whom he married in 1831.  Marshall and Mary had no children of their own.

Another William Ennis son, James, lived in Charleston, Virginia. He married Jane (Ruth) Newhouse, in 1834.  James had a Cooper Shop, making salt barrels for the Kanawha Valley Salt Industry. By 1850, James’s father, William, lived in the same household and is shown in the 1850 census report.  Legend has it that James Ennis was struck down by a cholera epidemic that came to the Kanawha Valley. When he was placed in a coffin for burial, he moved his hand and woke up—recovering from the disease and living for many years more.

Records from the Warren County area of Kentucky where Bowling Green is seems to indicate that the John that first settled there would have been much older than a son of William’s would be – it seems probable that John may have actually been an older brother to William (or even possibly his father).  If William did have a son named John he was born some time after the 1810 census was taken in Nelson County, VA.  I have not been able to locate William in an 1820 or 1830 census to verify the fourth son, John Ennis.

William’s son, Sherrod Ennis, is my fourth great-grandfather.  Sherrod first settled in Greenbrier County, Virginia by the time of his January 26, 1833 marriage to Esther Crookshanks Price. Esther Crookshanks was the daughter of John Crookshanks and Mary Cloverfield (1787 - John Kirk, surety for John Crookshanks & Mary Cloverfield).  John Crookshanks was reported to be a Hessian soldier hired by the British to fight the Colonists.  There is a record of a new adjutant to Lt. Col Campbell by the name of John Crookshanks, of the Queen's Rangers, who was "dangerously" wounded and taken prisoner, in 1781, at Georgetown.  Although the Hession soldier story is not confirmed the wound at the Battle of Georgetown matches with other information gathered on John Crookshanks revolutionary war service.  John Crookshanks came from Germany, but after the Revolutionary War, he made his home in America.  His daughter, Hester (Esther) Crookshanks married Tillery Price on 6 January 1827 in Greenbrier County – their family can be found in the 1830 Greenbrier County, VA census. The same William Irvin Ennis notes that alluded to family fortune in Scotland (from an interview with Sherrod Ennis, Jr.), also mentioned that Esther Ennis had at least 2 children by Tillery Price prior to her 1833 marriage to Sherrod Ennis, Sr.


Sherrod Ennis, Sr. of Sewell, in Fayette County, West Virginia, died on February 4, 1882. Sherrod's wife Esther reported the death but unfortunately did not name his parents. I was unable to find the death date of Esther Ennis – they are both buried at the Ennis Cemetery in Fayette County.  Sherrod and Esther had 10 children; one of them was James William Ennis.

James W. Ennis, my third great-grandfather, fought on the side of the Confederacy during the Civil War.  Cousin, Eileen Ennis Fox, shared a little lore on the circumstance of James W. Ennis' conscription into Confederate service. It is passed on that an attempt was made to draft James into the war cause and he decided to flea—his brother Marshall was taken in his stead. It is believed that James relented because Marshall had kids and a pregnant wife. When Marshall was returned to his family, he soon moved to Ohio.

On 5 June 1864, James Ennis was captured at the battle of Piedmont, Virginia.  He spent the remainder of the war at Indianapolis prison camp called, Camp Morton.  He was released June 12, 1865—taking a very long time to return home (one cousin stated that he had walked home).  As a result of James' long return home, his parents assumed he was dead and had given all his belongings away.

In 1867, James W. Ennis married Hulda Jane Kincaid in Fayette County. Hulda was the daughter of James and Sarah Martin Kincaid of Fayette County.  The Kincaid side of my family also has a story of three ancestral brothers that left Edinburgh Scotland for America.

James Kincaid died in 1923 and his wife Hulda Kincaid Ennis died in 1938—they are buried in the Ennis Cemetery of Meadow Bridge.

On September 9, 1897, James and Hulda Ennis's daughter, Susan Mary Ennis, married Sanford Samuel Grigsby in Fayette County, West Virginia. Sanford was the son of Charles and Annie Elizabeth Ailstock Grigsby of Bath and Rockbridge County, Virginia. Susan died shortly after the birth of their third child in 1902 Kanawha County, West Virginia. Susan's youngest sister, Annie Lee Ennis, was the last surviving child of James and Hulda Ennis.  The oldest child of Sanford and Susan Mary Ennis Grigsby was Forrest Leonard Grigsby; Forrest was my great-grandfather and the father of my grandmother, Alma Grigsby Mitchell.

Biography of Ennis from Ireland to Warren County, KY

John Ennis I arrived in America the 25th day of June 1716 at the Port of Boston on the passenger ship "Globe", along with 28 other passengers that sailed from Dublin, Ireland. John's occupation was listed as a currier. A currier was a craftsman who treats animal skins with oil or grease. Not long after he arrived in America, John migrated to Goochland County Virginia. In 1744, the western portion of Goochland was detached to form Albemarle County and later Amherst County was created from Albemarle County. It is not known who John married but he had one known son John Ennis II who became well known as a man of influence and position in the Old dominion.

Ginny, In case you don't have it (this from RECORD of WILLS, WARREN CO., KY, page 10:

Will Book D, page 80:

INNIS, George, wife, Matilda ENNIS. Children: Elizabeth, William, George Washington, Joseph R., William T., Cornelius. To daughter, Sally Phelps, a parcel of land on which William Phelps now lives. To two boys, the children of Dicey GRAVES of Giles Co., Tenn., said to have been begotten by my son, Cornelius ENNIS. Executors, my son in law, John CAMPBELL and Isaac Smith, Jonathan Potts, John C. Potts. A codicile to this will mentions Catherine Hollingsworth. This is dated January 29, 1833 and witnessed by Isaac Smith and William Nash. The second codicile dated April 13, 1835. Witnessed by Isaac Smith and John H. Gorin. Recorded June Court 1835. Test, Jona Hobson, C.W.C.C.

I'm pretty sure Matilda was a 2nd or even 3rd wife. Prob. 2nd, but he had children by several different wives over the period of his lifetime. Also, the marriage record I have for Cornelius' first wife is a Peggy Johnson? not Polly? I guess I'll have to look up that record again, to be sure. Juanita Brown (JBrown).


Cornelius Ennis and Dicey Graves

In Reply to: Re: Cornelius Ennis md Dicey Graves 1821 AL by Robert D. Epps


I looked through the 1870 census for Randolph Co., AR at the FHC and couldn't find a single ENNIS-INNES-INNIS listing. Where is Supple, AR? Couldn't find that either. I did find Cornelius and his 3rd or 4th family in Lafayette Co., MO for 1850. The whole county is listed as Dist. no. 46, so I had to search page by page to find him and the printing is so faint, it's hard to read any details. What became of this family? Did he bring them to AR with him in the 1870's? This is what I could make out on the page (written pg. no. 389 and printed pag. no. 196):

Cornelius ENNIS age 52, Carpenter-couldn't be certain of the listed state of birth, but I think it's him

Loiusa ENNIS, age 44

William H. ENNIS, 14, born LA

Louisa ENNIS, 3, born MO

A few houses before his listing is:

George __? ENNIS, 31, Carpenter, born KY

Janely?? ENNIS, age 31, born KY

Elvira C. ENNIS, age 7,

James La F. (Lafayette?) ENNIS, age 6

John C. ENNIS, age 4,

George ENNIS, age 8 mo.

Couldn't be sure of the other data-maybe some of you with better eyes can check it.

IF this is a brother of Cornelius, he would have been born ca. 1819 and Matilda?

would have been his mother? George R. ENNIS died 1835, an old man to be father at 1819, but I guess anything's possible. Also, since there's such an age difference in Cornelius' 14 yr. old son born in LA and the 3 yr. old daughter born MO., maybe there was another wife between Dicey and Louisa?

Where and when did Cornelius die? buried?

The son William H. was born before Dicey's death, so was there ever divorces for any of the wives? Anyone have any answers to any of these questions? I also checked Lincoln Co., TN 1850 census for John C. ENNIS and his wife, Parthenia-couldn't find them there.

Still looking for other areas. JBrown

I don't know of any listing for the Ennis Cem. I went there a few years ago and was able to locate only 2 headstones. One was Wm Ennis died 1841 and the other was N.E. Ennis d 1831. You might try contacting the library to see if they have a listing. Many Ennis were buried in Thompson Cem. and Union Cem. Anderson Ennis died 2/3/1889. According to a book by Wendell Ennis, Anderson's parents were William Ennis Jr and Sibbay Wilburn.

There are extensive court records in Orange County, Virginia, showing that JOHN ENNIS was the subject of many suits, usually dealing with landownership problems. In one case he is accused of fighting and biting off part of the ear of his fellow combatant. (Jerry R. Ennis).


Tradition states that JAMES fought in the Revolutionary War. He probably bought land on the Catawba River in Burke County, North Carolina and moved there with his family in the early 1780. (Jerry R. Ennis.


JAMES died 1778 (Jean (Ennis) Conrad or he died about 1792 or a few years later (Jerry R. Ennis).

Shadrick Enox Line

Shadrick Enis married Betsy Martin February 6, 1806 in Albemarle County, VA.  After this point in time, I find Shadrick identified with the “Enox” name in all later documentation. Shadrick Enox died in April 1860 at the age of 97 of dropsy.  He and his wife, Betsey, spent the remaining years of their life as paupers in the Nelson County, Virginia Poor House.  It is my belief that Shadrick is an older brother of William (Billy D.) Ennis – and that Sherrod Ennis’ name is actually a derivative of Shadrack.  If a connection can be verified between Shadrick and William it might be possible to make the link to the John Ennis (1650-1726) of Ireland line that migrated through Goochland and Amherst Counties, Virginia then on to Warren County, Kentucky.  There are several circumstantial clues that seem to lead to a family relationship between Shadrack Enox and William Ennis.  I have recorded anything I can find on Enix/Enis families of Nelson County, VA.

Ennis Inheritance Correspondence


London England, Jan. 3, 1869

Columbus Smith, Esq.:

Dear Sir—I am unable as yet to send a full report to the claimants in this case, but I shall write a note to let you know that I am at work on the case, and in a fair way to ascertain the parties entitled to the large property in Scotland.  In his report dated Feb. 10, 1866, Mr. Fisher correctly stated that Miss Innis died intestate, and the immense property belongs to the nearest heirs: so that we have only to secure the correct pedigrees of Miss Innis and connect her with the rightful claimants.  The present possessor of the estate, Mr. Mitchell, seems to have obtained possession merely because no other person endeavored to substantiate a claim to it.  He was, I have learned, quite remotely connected with Miss Innis, to have taken possession without any show of right, and now holds the property simply by right of possession.

I shall use every means to secure the desired pedigree, and hope the claimants will tolerate my delay, when they consider the vastness of the work before me.  In this particular case no further information respecting the amount and situation of property is needed by you.

In the course of my researches I have found other Innis properties unclaimed, and shall forward the advertisements to you.  I shall keep you informed upon the results of my investigations as I proceed.

It shall be my purpose to investigate thoroughly the several cases now in hand, and if we can obtain the pedigrees of all claimants in America we shall be able to ascertain the validity of these claims in a short time.

Yours truly,

A. B. Herrick



W. Salisbury, Vt., April, 1869

To Hon. H. O. Smith, American Agent for the Innis Association:

Dear Sir—After this long delay in the investigation of the Innis case in Great Britain, the delay unavoidable on account of my necessary change of partners in Europe, I am now able to furnish to you a short report from Mr. Herrick, relative to this case, which I think you better have printed and send to the members of the Association.

I believe this property is now recoverable by the next of kin of Jane Innis, and I hope we shall yet be able to show some member or members of this Association such next of kin.  This is not an old case.  On that account the difficulties of proving pedigree would be much less than would necessarily be in an old case.  Mr. Mitchell, now in possession, had not yet got a title by possession.  It now remains for the claimants to say whether this investigation shall go on or shall stop.  We cannot go on without we are properly supported by the Association.  Mr. Herrick has but just got fairly into the case.  He believes it to be a good one, and has become very much interested in it, and it seems a great pity to have the investigation cease before all the facts are found out relative to it.

                                                                                Yours truly,

Columbus Smith.

Letter Provided by Ron Anderson on Innes family fortune - dated 14th February 1895

This following information was sent to me by my sister, Pat Anderson (Ashford, Middx) from information she had received from our Aunt Gertie Long, it is from an essay/project that my cousin Stephen Long carried out at school based on papers that had been kept by my Great Aunt Beattie after the death of her father (my Great Grandfather on my Father's side. William Matthew Long, died 1933)


                                                                                                                        15, Cecil Road,

                                                                                                                        The Bristol Road,



Mrs. Cresswell / Dear Madam,

I received a letter a few days ago from your sister Mrs. Nash giving me your adress- I should have wrote to you before but I have had such a bad cold on my chest, I am quite sure that you could not understand much at the meeting so I will try and explain a little more. Our case is such a grand good case, The Scotch lawyers call it a beautiful case, and I know so much about it that I hardly know where to begin.

Your mother is the eldest daughter of Mary Mathews, and the eldest grandaughter of my grandmother, Sarah Bosworth. My mother was Elizabeth, a younger daughter.

Our grandmother was a cousin to Miss Innes the testatrix and at the death of Jane Innes, Sarah Bosworth was next of kin, we are all quite sure of that, you mother knew that too. I have been searching ever since 1881, and in April 1883, I went to Scotland for the first time. I have been altogether 9 times. Mr Long has been with us twice. We have found every Register of Birth, Marriage and Death down here back to 1682, the whole history of every branch of the family- we have a pedigree, that Mr Long says he is quite satisfied with. There was one marriage that could not be found, your mother and everyone tried and searched and at last they gave it up, and my mother and everyone believed that it had been destroyed, but when I was a girl at home and being one of the youngest of the family, my mother often talked to me about this case and pointed out the relationship to grandmother, and showed me the names of the Innes's of Scotland and told me about Gilbert Innes, the brother of Jane coming to see grandmother and bringing her money, and that grandmother was really always waiting and expecting the trustees to come and fetch her to Scotland and claim it, 10-12 years before she died.

When I started in 1881, I told them the marriage must be searched for most carefully. I have searched all the churches in Glostershire, and some in Hereford after advertising in the London Standard and the best papers here 20 pounds reward for the marriage, it seemed hopeless but I would not give up, I commenced searching in the Probate Court in Gloster and I insisted upon seeing the Cathedral Register and found the marriage there. Our parents could not go forward and claim because they thought this marriage was lost.

In 1857 some documents were got together and a Lawyer came from Scotland and got all the papers off them pretending that he would get the money for them, as soon as he got all the papers he was gone and never heard of again. A man named Abraham Jervis was amongst us lately, trying to get the documents and got a good bit of money off several of my cousins pretending to get up our case, but my cousin at Ledbury went up to London and found he was being deceived and prosecuted him at the Gloster Assizes in November for obtaining money by false pretences and he had six months hard labour in jail here. I turned my back on him the first time I saw him, and I stuck to Mr Long. Part of the documents are his and part mine. I have always found Mr Long straight and honest, and I will do all I can to help him win it. He had worked very hard at it and I have too, and I will never rest until I see something done.


We found in Edinburgh the old butler and the man that was Page.  The old butler told us the whole history of the family and everything that had been done, he was summoned 2 years after Miss Innes's death to make his deposition before the Lords of the Treasury, and tell everything he had heard from Miss Innes.  He told us that Miss Innes often told him of her heirs and next of kin were the descendants of her Uncle William in the South West of England, poor working people, and a good deal more about us.  We do come through her Uncle William, his tombstone is at Longhope and has been defaced, but it is badly done and leaves the trace very plain and all the tombstones in Scotland are defaced and we believe that our Aunt Esther went to Scotland to claim and was followed to her home and  we were told in Edinburgh that a hole was bored in the house, and charcoal or gas put in, they were all smothered and died.  The trustees took £14 000 each and pretended it was all settled, but friends of Miss Innes set to work as soon as she was buried, and traced out all the bad work.  The old butler done what he could, I was astonished to find that the Scotch people had cleared the way for us, they told us they want our claim, and I want them to benefit as soon as possible.  I have spent a good deal myself upon it, now we are trying to get it into Court.  We are going to try and get it in Court "en forme pauperie" that is the poor man's Court.  In London that would be in Council's opinion, in Scotland it will cost less, but 3 or 4 of us will have to live in Scotland 6 weeks and then we can walk into Court as Citizens of Scotland and ask for a hearing of our case, and open it that way  Dear Mrs Cresswell, I hope that you will be able to understand this scribble, I am going to call a meeting as soon as the weather is a little better and Mr Long will begin with the case as soon as £25 is paid down.  We want 4 or £5 now to make up our half.

Can you or your sisters and brother help us?.  If you can make up £4 in your family and let us have it at the next meeting, I think the rest will be forthcoming, a great many have put theirs.

This is the first time I have ever tried to raise money for it, but this money is for expenses to get it into Court, we can't get it in without, it must go in a legal way.  I hope I shall never have to ask you but once more after this, and I hope you will help is at once.  I shall do everything I can to push it, I think it is our duty to do all we can to win back our birthright, I shall do nothing that I am ashamed of and I hope heaven will help us.

Please write, I shall  have no secrets, you will know what the money is used for,


I am sincerely yours,

E. Chandler.

John Crookshanks Revolutionary War Pension Records

On 24, October 1820, John CROOKSHANKS age 66 years, appeared in open court and made oath that he served in Revolutionary War as follows: he enlisted in Augusta County in company of musketry commanded by Capt. John SIMS of 10th Va. Regt. In 1776 for 3 years, then he was in the battles of Brandywine and Germantown, and when his three years had expired, he enlisted in the legion commanded by Col. Henry LEE to server during the war, and was in the battles of Georgetown and Guilford where he was wounded in his right leg just below the knee.  A certificate of pension was granted him 4 June 1818, No. 4719.  He swears he was a resident citizen on 18 Mar 1818 when he applied and that he has not tried to diminish his property in order to bring him under the Act of Congress pertaining to pensioners.  The property which he owns is as follows: one bay mare very old, two other mares 8 to 9 yrs. old, 10 head of sheep, 2 yearling cattle, 2 ovens and hooks, 2 kettles, one pair of hooks, 2 old coffee pots, 1 tea kettle, 1 old broken skillet, 3 chairs, one reed, one pair of gears, 2 spinning wheels, one big wheel, two old water vessels and shotgun, 5 old water buckets, 2 dishes, 6 bowls, 15 spoons, 11 knives and forks, one candle stick, one tea pot, a log chain, two old broken shovels, a bar share plow, gears, 3 blevins, 3 hoes, 5 augers, 2 chisels, one gouge, a drawing knife, one reel, one small trunk, 4 scythes, 2 sickles, one saddle, six tea cups, one pipes box, 10 pitch forks, one dung fork, one coffee mill, one flat iron, one key, two pint bottles, one churn, one strainer, four bridles, one cutting box and knife, two hammers, pincers, nippers, two knives, 15 old links, one pair of wool cards, one curry comb, one mustard box, 2 axes, snuffers, one iron wedge, one griddle.  His family consists of a wife (not named) who is 53 years of age, unable to labour in consequence of rheumatic pains, four daughters: Elizabeth CROOKSHANKS age 27 yrs., Catherine CROOKSHANKS age 19 yrs., Hester CROOKSHANKS age 12, and Nancy CROOKSHANKS age 6 yrs., tow of whom are able to contribute to their support; also three boys: Alexander CROOKSHANKS age 17 yrs., William CROOKSHANKS age 15 yrs., and George CROOKSHANKS one year old, tow of whom are able to assist in some degree in working to our support.   (Note: surnames of children added to this record to enable their names to appear in the index.)  He is a farmer aged a66 who owns no land, and is unable to support himself in consequence of a wound received in Battle of Guilford Courthouse below his left knee, and from old age and inability is unable to contribute to his own or his family’s support.  Court values his property at $103 and copy of declaration and list of property ordered transmitted to War Dept.[56]


John CROOKSHANKS personally appeared to say he was acquainted with SMITH while a regular soldier in the service of the U.S. during Rev. War, and that he and SMITH enlisted about the same time in Staunton, Augusta Co., Va. and that they both swore in at the same time before a certain Alexander SINCLAIR then a Justice of the Peace for Augusta County and that he enlisted in the company commanded by Capt. John SIMS, also of the 10th Va. Regt., and SMITH says he has no other evidence in his power of his said service.  Court is satisfied that SMITH did serve in the Rev. War for 3 years, and from their own knowledge he is in reduced circumstances, and Clerk is ordered to transmit a copy of these proceedings to Secretary of War.  John CROOKSHANKS, age 65 next January, also personally appeared to make his own declaration that he served in the same Regt. As SMITH and served for 3 years and was in Battle of Brandywine and Jamestown, and that after his 3 years expired, he enlisted in the Legion commanded by Col. Henry LEE and he was in battle of Georgetown and Guilford where he was wounded in the right leg just below the knee, and that he was then put into a hospital at Guilford Courthouse where he remained some time, and then was taken to Charlotte in North Carolina and from thence after some time he was taken to Camden, South Carolina, where he was discharged from service by said General in 1782 and that he has lost said discharge, that he is now a pensioner of the U.S. as will appear by a reference to his certificate of pension signed by W. EUSTUS which he prays may be considered a part of his statement.  (Accompanying this Court hearing was his pension certificate bearing date of 27 April 1810 saying he was on the pension list at the rate of $2.50 per month to commence on 20 December 1809.  He had no other evidence of his service and that the pension now allowed him is not sufficient to support him and that he is in reduced circumstances and needs his country’s support.  Other witnesses testified in his behalf and Court orders clerk to send a copy of these proceedings to Secretary of War.[57]

Tracking the Anne Anderson Martin Line


Compiled by Carol Beattie, September 2003


Cornelius and Edyth Dabney

Dorothy Dabney married William Anderson

            Anne Anderson married Steven Martin

                        Sherod Martin married Mary

                                    Francis Martin married William Ennis


This document is an attempt to pull together sources of information about Ann(e) Martin, wife of Steven Martin, mother of Sherod Martin, and grandmother of Francis Martin Ennis. Researchers on the Internet have posted several genealogies for this family. This compiler has been able to document some of the information, but full compelling evidence has not been obtained for all connections. Only information that is logical and/or has some supporting evidence is being presented in this report. Other extensions of this line, and much conflicting information, have been posted on the Internet. However, no supporting documentation has been obtained by this compiler, and it is not being included. In a belief that more heads are better than one, this document is being sent to other researchers in the family in the hopes that, together we can find additional proof.



“I Steven Martin being in my proper sences do appoint this my last will & testament. It is my desire that my negro fellow Harry shall be sold and that my son John Martin shall have twenty pounds of the money that he is sold for and that my wife Anne shall have the remainder. I also give to my wife Anne one feather bed one cow two iron potts and all the pewter that I have and one third part of my stock of hoggs. I give to my son Giddeon Martin all the land within the following bounds; beginning at Ben Crawfords line and running parilel with Simpsons Branch (so as to include Gideon Martins plantation) to John Martins line all my land on the south side of the above lines I give to my son Stephen Martin. All my land on the north side of the above mentioned bounds on provision that my wife shall have the plantation whereon I live as long as she lives. I give to my son John Martin my bay mare & my saddle and two cattle. I give to my daughter Ann Smith two cattle. I give my daughter Elizabeth Gragg one cow. I give my wife Ann my sorrill horse. I give the remaining part of my stock of horses cattle hoggs my stock of sheep to be equally divided amongst all my children ElizabethGragg Mary Martin Sherod Martin Stephen Martin Ann Smith John Martin. I do appoint William Martin sole executor.” Signed December the 16th 1768 by Steven Martin with his mark, in the presence of Francis Meriwether, James Martin, William Henderson. Will was presented in court on August 7, 1769. (Note: spelling and punctuation are as in the will.)


CHRIST CHURCH, ST PETER’S PARISH 1653-1812, New Kent Co., Virginia (Found on, Also found in The Vestry Book and Register of St. Peter’s Parish, New Kent and James City Counties, Virginia 1684-1786, transcribed by C. G. Chamberlayne, published by The Library Board, Richmond, 1937

Birth/Baptism Records for:

Elizabeth Martin June 01, 1730, parents: Steven Martin and Ann Anderson

Fanny Martin August 02, 1736, parents: Steven Martin and Ann Anderson


*Compiler’s Note: This is the only proof that I have found that ties Ann Anderson to Steven Martin. Is this the correct Steven and Ann Martin? This is the weakest link in the chain. We know that an Elizabeth was listed in Steven’s will, but not Fanny. Could Fanny be Ann Martin Smith? Another researcher believes that Fanny was Francis Martin who married William Martin and died in 1831, in Amherst Co. No other proof of Steven Martin being in New Kent Co has been located. However, there were others with the Martin surname in the county in the early 1700s.


*Compiler’s Note: Gideon Martin, son of Steven and Anne, served in the Revolutionary War. The information was obtained from Virginia/West Virginia Genealogical Data from Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty Land Warrant Records, Vol 3, compiled by Patrick G Wardell, Heritage Books, Inc. “Gideon Martin esf 1780 Amherst Co., VA, in Captain Azariah Martin’s (no kinship given) company; PN aec 100 Warren Co KY, 1832 F-531232 R1638.” Researchers of Gideon provide a birth date of 1732 and a death date of 1837. The 1732 birth date would fit in with the timeframe of births of Elizabeth and Fanny.



More than one researcher has stated that the Ann Anderson who married Steven Martin was the daughter of William and Dorothy (Dabney) Anderson. (Note: The parentage of Ann is the second weak link.) Cited as proof of the parents of Ann is the will of William Anderson, said to have been proven in 1717 in King William Co, VA. It is reported to name his wife, Dorothy, and children Elizabeth, Susannah, Dabney, Sarah, Mary, Judith, and Ann.


*Compiler’s Note: We have now moved to a section of Virginia that is very confusing. County lines changed several times, as did Parish lines. Also, several counties are known as “Burned Counties”, in that their courthouses were destroyed by fire at various times. In addition, the family of Dorothy Dabney Anderson was located in a part of Virginia where four counties are quite close; New Kent, King William, King and Queen, and Gloucester.


*Compiler’s Note: The Virginia Archives in Richmond are said to have a collection of various wills which have been submitted from the Burned Counties. It is hoped that the will of William may be found there.



The following information about William was found in the book “English Duplicates of Lost Virginia Records”, Compiled by Louis des Cognets, Jr., published

From the Quit Rent Roll of King William County for 1704, Capt. Wm. Anderson owned 150 acres.

Appointed Justice of the Peace of King William Co 27 Apr 1710

Appointed Sheriff of King William County 22 April 1712.

County Coroner of King William County in 1714


The following are land patents for William, which are said to be listed in the Virginia Patent Books:

                1663-Head right of William Jones to New Kent Co.

                12/10/1668 Patent 6/213 437 acres New Kent Co

                3/11/1675/76 Patent ?/601 60 acres Gloucester Co

                9/22/1682 Patent 7/186 90 acres New Kent Co

                4/25/1701 Patent 9/350 179.5 acres King & Queen Co

From the description of the land, it is thought that William likely owned land on both sides of the Poroptank River and the county line between Gloucester and King William Counties.



The following are land patents, which tie Dorothy Dabney to William Anderson, and her father, Cornelius Dabney:

                1699: James Dabney, Geo. Dabney, Dorothy Dabney and Sarah Dabney, devisees of Cornelius

Dabney, dec’d were heirs of 700 acres to which was added Low Land thereto adjoining 150

acres in Pamunkey Neck.


25 Apr 1701: Patented 179 acres, St. John’s Parish, King & Queen Co., VA, next to her sister

Sarah. That date Sarah Dabney was patented 179.5 acres in Pamunkey Neck within King and

Queen Co., VA, beginning at a hickory on Pownces Swamp and running by marked trees

dividing this from James Dabney’s land, bounded also by her sister Dorothy’s land Pownce’s

Swamp and the water course of the said swamp.


                “Wm.Anderson & Dorothy, his wife 179.5 acres in Pamunkey Neck; K & Q Co., in St. John’s

Par; on Pownce’s Sw; adj. Sarah Dabney; 25 Apr 1701, p. 350. Trans of 4 pers: George Moody,

Anne Parker, George Summersett, Robert Breadwood. Cavaliers & Pioneers, Abstracts of

Virginia Land Patents and Grants, Abstracted by Nell Marion Nugent, Vol 3:1695-1732




The first patent of land to Cornelius Dabney is said to be dated 1664. It may be found in the Archives Division of the Virginia State Library in Richmond, and it reads as follows:

“To all to whome these presents shall come: Now know ye, that I, the said Sir William Berkeley, Knt., Governer of Virginia, do give and grant unto Cornelius Dabony, two hundred acres of land lying in New Kent County on the south side of York river above Tettopotomoyes Creek, beginning at a white oak at the mouth of the creek and along the creek westerly 750 poles to a maple and thence N by W 152 poles to a… the river side, thence down the river 750 poles easterly to the first station where it began. Being marked all round by marked trees and the river and the aforesaid creek. Two hundred acres part hereby being formerly granted to the said Daboney by patent dated the 27th of September 1664 and one hundred acres being due unto the said Dabany for the transportation of two persons…. To have and to hold and to be held and yielding and paying (et)….Given under my hand the 16th day of March 1667.

Headrights attached: Jone Winter & Besse an Indian.”


*Compiler’s Note: Transporting means the bringing in from overseas or a neighboring colony. Colonists were given land for bringing other people into the colony.


*Compiler’s Note: This researcher has not seen the above patent. However, it has been cited in several sources, and said to be in Land Patent Book, No 5, page 370.  One source is Old New Kent County Some Account of The Planters, Plantations, and Places in King William County St. John’s Parish, Vol.II by Malcolm Hart Harris (Another reason for a trip to Richmond.)



From The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, December 31, 1915, Vol. XXIII, Abstracts by W. N. Sainsbury, and copies in the McDonald and De Jarnette Papers, Virginia State Library, Virginia in 1677-1678.

                “Virginia June 29, 1678

                Cockacoeroe, Queen of Pamunkey to Colonel Francis Moryson. Finds by experience the great

                King of England to be her very good friend. Shall make it her business to possess her neighbour

                Indians and others to be of the same mind and affection to his Majesty as herself and hopes her

                Example will be a pattern to all those who are concerned in these late Articles of Peace never

                To be violated. If any insurrection arise it will be contrary to the knowledge of the Queen who

                Will endeavour to put a period to the least of differences. Has vowed perpetual fidelity to his

                Majesty. Confesses her fault in running away. Her grievences are deferred to the next

                Assembly. Is very much dissatisfied with the Rappahannocks who are very disobedient to her

                Commands for what she bids them do in behalf of the English; they are a deceitful people.

                Her son presents his humble service to the great King of England. ‘This is the interpretation

                Of the Queen of Pamunkey with her mark attested by me Cornelius Dabney. (Colonial Papers

                1 p.)”

                                Footnote: “This is the first time that the name of the Queen of Pamunkey appears in our

                                Records. She was at the head of what remained of the Indians once ruled by Powhatan

                                and Opecancanough. She had been the wife of Tottopotomoy who was killed as an ally

of the settlers in the fight at Bloody Run. The running away she refers to occurred during Bacon’s Rebellion. Cornelius Dabney, long an Indian interpreter, was also a planter and was ancestor of the well-known Virginia family of the name.”


*Compiler’s Note: The Pamunkey Tribe was part of the confederation of Indian tribes that John Smith dealt with in early Virginia history. There continues to be a Pamunkey Indian Reservation on the maps of Virginia. Information about the tribe is available on the Internet.

(Note: This is a well researched article, which sets out to prove that the ancestry of Cornelius is English and not French Hugenot, as many had claimed.)


Land Records from the Virginia Land Office

1.       Sept. 27, 1664; Cornelius DeBaney (his name, appearing several times in the patent, has

been incorrectly copied as deBonis and deBoney); 200 acres on Tottopotomoy’s Creek, South Side of York River, a little below the fort of Manaskin. For the transportation of four persons.

2.       June 7, 1666; Cornelius Debney, 640 acres on the lower side of Tottopotomoy’s Creek,

York River, next land of Robert Anderson and John Fleming. Purchased from Mr. Littlepage and James Turner. For the transportation of thirteen persons.

3.       March 16, 1667; Cornelius Dabony, 300 acres on South Side of York River and upper side

of Tottopotomoy’s Creek. For the transportation of two persons, Jone Winter and Besse an Indian.


                Sainsbury’s Abstracts of Colonial State Papers, extant in the Public Records Office in London

1.       Conclusion of a letter written 29, June 1678 “Sr. my Wife Eedeth has her humble

Service p’sented unto y’ Hono’, would gladly send y’ one of her Boyes a yeare or two hence. My humble service to y’ Hono’. I am: Sr: y’ Hono’s most humble servant in all obedience Cornelius Dabney.”


2.       “Two letters dated September and October, 1686, from William Byrd in Virginia to

Perry and Lane in London requesting payment of L6, S37 drawn on them by Cornelius Daboney. Perry and Lane were London agents for most of the wealthy Virginia families in the latter part of the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. (There are also records among the Colony’s papers in Richmond of the payment in tobacco of Cornelius Dabney’s salary as agent to the Indians.”


“Here we have evidence that Cornelius Dabney was a British citizen of age, for no alien or minor could receive land grants or hold office, and that he had an English wife and at least two boys, one at least old enough in 1678 to be sent to England to school. To have acquired land and to have learned the language of the Indians, Cornelius Dabney must have been in Virginia at least twenty years when this letter was written in 1678."


                                    3.  “The St. Peter’s Vestrybook, which starts in 1680, shows that Cornelius Dabney was

             a member of the vestry of that church and had attended eighteen meetings, nearly every one, from 1684 to October 25, 1693 (he died soon thereafter, as shown by the burial records), and that he was present at the meeting in 1684, the year before the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes. This indicates early residence in New Kent, for only matured men were admitted to the vestry. Accordingly on May 1, 1694, a vestryman was appointed to serve as church warden for two years—the customary term—‘in ye place of Mr. Cornelius Dabboni’, deceased. All this shows that Cornelius Dabney was an Englishman and a member of the Church of England and ranked among the best men in the county. St. Peter’s Vestry was for a century probably the most aristocratic vestry in Virginia.”




Should you chose to do a search on the Internet about this family, you will find much conflicting information. There are at least two other wives ascribed to Cornelius, one, Sarah Jennings, was probably the wife of a son or grandson, instead. Cornelius may have had a second wife, Susannah. Some even say his second wife may have been a Native American.


It would be great if all of this lineage could be proven. However, I doubt that some information will ever be found. It makes for great history if it is true. What do you think? Any ideas? Let me know, if you come up with any research possibilities for any of this. Even if this turn out to be totally incorrect, I had an interesting time compiling the info.  Carol Beattie, 14 September, 2003.

This marriage date and place are reported in the "Chronicles of the Scotch Irish" by Lyman Chalkley. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Archd. Scott.



Birthplace: Some researchers of the Crookshanks family report that John was born in Augusta Co, VA. Family lore in the Ennis branch of the family states that he was a Hessian soldier who came to the colonies with those troops and may have switched allegance. Still another researcher believes he may have been born in Shenandoah Co., VA or Scotland.

Marshall moved to Ohio in 1861, when Confederate troops came to conscript his brother, who was hiding, into the army. When they could not find his brother, James William, they took Marshall, instead. Upon hearing the news, James William caught up with the patrol and was exchanged for Marshall. That evening, Marshall, his wife, and three children left in a wagon for Ohio. Near the Ohio River, they reported hearing gun fire. (Family lore)


At various times, the census lists Marshall as a common laborer, coal miner, and farmer.


Marshall had 3 children with Eliza and 7 with Maria.

His wife, Francis showing born between 1765-1783.  If the oldest son is in fact Marshall then that means that John was born after this 1810 census in Nelson County, Virginia.

[6] The Tillery Price family – first husband of Esther Crookshanks.  Tillery apparently died by the time of Esthers second marriage to Sherrod Ennis in 1833.

[21] At this point I believe a generation was left out of the dialog. sources report that there was a John Ennis that married Anna Elizabeth Kolter around 1714 and had a son named John in 1720.  I believe it is this 1720 John that actually married Mary Ann Whitlock.

[37] Thompson B. Ennis has a Civil War pension record on file (1st OH Inf.) that names his mother, Sarah A. Ennis, as beneficiary.

[38] George Ennis married Sarah A. Duncan.  Based on George’s connection to Greene County, OH there is a possibility that he is a descendant of John Ennis (b. Dec. 3, 1769 PA d. May 10, 1829 Sugar Creek, Greene Co, OH) and Elizabeth Armstrong (b. 1773 d. Nov. 1, 1843 Greene Co, OH) who were married April 10, 1794 in PA.  The father of John Ennis is reported to be Thompson Ennis – John also had a brother named Thompson (b. 1780).

[42] This Ohio marriage record verified:  Marshall Ennis married Rosanna Heckly 28 May 1865 in Coshocton.

[43] Elizabeth Martin Enox, may be the bride of Shadrack Enis/Enox – there is no sign of him in 1810.

[44] William (Billy D.) Ennis after his 1795 marriage to Francis Martin.  Two sons were born between 1800-1810 (James and Sherrod), one son born between 1794-1799 (Marshall).  Two daughters born between 1794-1799 (Sarah and Decca). His wife, Francis showing born between 1765-1783.  If the oldest son is in fact Marshall then that means that John was born after this 1810 census in Nelson County, Virginia.
