The Enochs family along with the Crows, Grandons, Morris's and Archers were the early settlers of Noble County, taking residence on the east fork of Duck Creek. The Acquaintances of the Enochs family with these other families however, are deeply rooted in Greene County, Pennsylvania and Hampshire County, Virginia, now comprising part of West Virginia.
The Enochs were veritable frontiersmen of the "Buckskin" era with quite a number being killed or scalped by Indians. The Enochs were of German extraction, nearly all of the Methodist faith, while politically, Whigs and Republicans. The Enochs were generally men of strong physical development, and individuals who seemingly never backed away from a fight as noted by their involvement in the Indian wars, Revolutionary War, War of 1812 and the Civil War.
Enoch Enochs Sr. born in Hampshire County, Virginia, on 29 September 1750, was the son of Henry Enochs I and Elizabeth. Enoch Enochs Sr. enlisted as a patriot in the Revolutionary War, on 1 June 1774 serving four months as ensign in his brother, Colonel Henry Enochs' company on Ten Mile Creek, Pennsylvania. On 1 April 1775, Enoch was appointed Captain of the company under Colonel Dorsey Pentecost, as well as serving as captain under Colonel Henry Enochs. Interestingly enough, Enoch Enochs father, Henry Enoch I, also volunteered his services for the patriots in the Revolution, with the DAR Patriot Roll indication that he provided patriotic service to Virginia. Henry according to the Patriot Roll was born around 1725, and died sometime after 1782. His name is prominently mentioned in the records of Hampshire County, Virginia as residing in "Enoch's Holow".
