I am looking for any mention of Enos Wells in Maury County. He was in the 1840 census in the division of Powhatan Gordon. Does anyone know the location of this division? Enos was in Lewis County in 1850 with his wife Susannah (Boyd) and children, but I suspect they were there because of the formation of Lewis Co. from Maury and had not changed their location.
Enos B. was the son of John Wells and Margaret Hunter Wells. Margaret died in 1845, I think in Maury County. Enos married Susannah Boyd (Boid) about 1835 but I have never found a record of the marriage. Also looking for her parents. Few clues to that in the last 20 years. Enos performed marriages in Maury County in 1847 and 48 and the family moved to Orange County Indiana soon after.
Enos had brothers Alexander, Nathan, Joseph, John and Jesse Hunter Wells.
I appreciate any help whatsoever with this long standing search, particularly who Susannah Boyd's parents were.
