ENOCH
     Henry, Israel and Abraham Enoch were in Wayne Township, Montgomery 
County, prior to 1810, where Abraham married Nancy Meigh, or HEIGH, 13-
Nov.1813.
     The earliest record of this family is found in the records of Old 
Gloria Die (old Swede's) Church, where Enoch Enochs and wife Susannah 
were members and their children were named as Gabriel Enoch born Feb.
1695, and Andrew.
     The Montgomery County settlers probably came from Hampshire 
Co., Va., where Henry Enoch, an early settler of Frederick County,
finally located. He received, 22-Apr.1753, a grant for 388 acres
(Washington's survey). The Maryland Archives (Vol. 31, pp. 247-253) 
show that in 1756 Henry Enoch, Sr., and Henry Enoch, Jr., were sued 
by Col. Thomas Cresap over this same plantation. In 1761 he received,
by grant, 271 acres on Little Cacapon, in Hampshire Co.; in 1763, 
278 acres on Great Cacapon; and in 1764, 57 acres, known as "Enoch's
Hollow."
     Hennings Statutes, Vol. 7, p. 18, show that in 1756 a chain of 
forts was to begin with Henry Enoch's place on Great Cacapon in Hampshire
County.
     Henry Enoch died between 1782-4; his wife was Elizabeth and they 
had sons, Henry, David, Enoch and Col. John.
     Prior to 1790 Henry, Danid and Enoch settled in Washington
Co., Pa., where they were prominent in the orginazition of the Ten Mile
Babtist Church, said to be the first church of any kind in the county.
The first meeting was held at the home of Enoch, 1-Dec.1773. On 4-Feb.
1774, they met at the home of David Enoch. He was one of the representa-
tives of this church at the Red Stone Association held 7-Oct.1776. About 
1781 the Rev. John  Corbly, formerly a neighbor of the Enoch family in 
Hampshire County, became pastor of this church.
     Henry Enoch, Jr., was Captain of the Monongahela Militia during 
the Revolution; his wife was Sarah; in 1765 he owned 308 acres on Little
Cacapon.
     David Enoch had a son David, Jr., born prior to 1776, who had 
fourteen children; he also had a daughter, Rachel, who married Joseph 
Arvacost.
     Enoch Enoch, in 1753, had 168 acres in Frederick Co. at the
neck of the Patomac; his wife was Rebecca.
     20-Aug.1778, Isaac Cox, David Enoch and Henry Enoch were recommended 
as fit persons to be added to the Commission of Peace of Youghiogheny 
County. The Cox family was connected by marriage. Col. Isaac married
Mary Enoch. They had no issue; his brother Gabriel married Sarah Enoch, 
daughter of Capt. Henry.
