About Johan Enoch

Johan Enoch, born c. 1672, was married in 1696 to the widow of Derrick Johansson, who was named Brigitta Gästenberg, daughter of Olof Nilsson alias Gästenberg (ghost mountain, in Swedish). She already had three children by her first marriage. Her first husband had been executed for murder after a trial which left consider-able doubt as to his guilt. Johan and Brita lived in Nishaminy, Bucks County, on Derrick's plantation. In 1697, Johan Enoch made a pledge for the salary of the new minister and contributed ^3 toward the construction of Gloria Dei Church. He doubled this gift in 1699 and in 1700 was given a desirable pew in the new church. In 1704 he also gave ^1.16 to help pay for the porch additions.

In 1713, John Enoch and his wife sold their 100-acre farm in Bucks County to her late husband's brother Johan Johansson and moved to Aronameck in Kingsessing, where they lived on land provided by Nils Jonasson, who had married Brita's sister Christina. Brita died in Kingsessing in childbirth on 29 January 1716. Her husband, Johan Enoch died about 1730. They had six known children
