Elisha Loony/Looney and Mary Ann Lennox/Enix/Enochs
Posted by: Peggy Bruckner (ID *****7164) Date: January 24, 2011 at 17:11:20
  of 1462

I have no connections to Looney or Enochs. In my research found these records that might help someone identify the ancestry of Elish Luna/Loony/Looney's wife, Mary Ann "Polly" Enochs, who has been misidentified as Lennox or Enix in some research:

Caswell County, NC
[NC State Archives, Raleigh, NC: CR 020.510.1]
Guardians' Accounts
1809, page 169

John Yancey (guardian)
"Polly Loony wife of Elisha Loony and daughter of Andrew Enochs"

[SOURCE: Katharine Kerr Kendall, Caswell County, NC, Will Books 1777-1814; 1784 Tax List; and Guardians' Accounts, Vol 1, published 1979, page 149]

Guardians' Accounts
1809, page 179

John Yancey (guardian)
"Samuel Coplinger gives receipt for legacy due his wife as heir of Andrew Enochs"

[Kendall, page 149]

NOTE: Do not know who Samuel's wife is, nor how she fits into this family.

Guardians' Accounts
1807, page 125

John Yancey (guardian)
"David, Elizabeth, and Sarah Enoch, orphans of Andrew Enochs"

[Kendall, page 149]

Guardians' Accounts
1797, page 19

Elizabeth Enochs, Widow (guardian)
"Orphans of Andrew Enochs"

[Kendall, page 147]

Caswell Court Minutes
1797, Book C, page 226

"Robert Kimbrough and Elizabeth Enochs adms, of Andrew Enochs. Vouchers paid to James Coleman, Benjamin Enochs, H. Haralson, Ambrose Arnold, Col. Murphy, and Robt. Kimbrough guardian to Elizabeth Enochs. Approved by Jas. Yancey and William Gooch."

[Kendall, page 55]

NOTE: Robert Kimbrough is my ancestor. I researched this family to determine if there was a connection to the Kimbro/Kimbroughs of Caswell Co, NC; however, I found none.

The above Elizabeth is apparently Elizabeth King. I have nothing more on her ancestry.
