I have no information on Enoch, but am wondering if my g-g-g grandmother, Ophelia Massey Vickers, is in your Massey line. She married William Duane Vickers (Sr.) on 28 Nov 1860 in Orange County.
William Duane was born ca.1842 in Orange County and died about 1899 in Durham County. He served in the War Between the States in the NC Infantry, 56th Regiment, Company E, and was present at Appomattox on 09 Apr 1865 for the surrender.
I do not have birth or death dates for Ophelia. They had thirteen children, including my g-g grandfather, Joseph Hiram Vickers (1860-1944).
Ophelia and William may be buried in the G.W. Vickers Sr. family cemetery on Weaver St. in Durham. There are some graves marked only with field stones.
I would appreciate it if you could share any information you have on Ophelia.

Thanks in advance,
