I am searching for the name of the wife of my GGG Grandfather Andrew Ensley, born ca. 1774, Guliford NC. died July 18, 1835, Scott Creek, Haywood Co. NC. He lived most of his life in Haywood Co. NC. He and his wife are buried at Dills Cem., Fisher Creek in Jackson Co. N.C.
We think her last name was Morrow as Andrew is listed in documents with various Morrow’s.
“1811-1813 Haywood Co NC Land Entries #244, p.40 William Morgan, Joseph Morrow, James Morrow, Andrew Ensley and George Myers Enters 250 acres of Land in Haywood County on both sides of Johathans Creek above Malcom Henry including a bridge on the wagon road leading from thence to Oconolufty and also including the forks of sd Creek above sd Henry. Entered Feb. 2, 1811.”
Andrew was chosen as an Executor in a will by a John Morrow. This will was dated Oct 29, 1826 and mentions as best as I can read it the following persons. Wife Sarah, Alexander and Henry Morrow, (does not state relationship) and daughter Sady? Watson. Executors chosen: George Cunningham? and Andrew Ensley. Also listed, I believe as witnesses: John Withrow and Jos. ? Johnson.
Does anyone know who these Morrow’s were and who their siblings, parents and children were?
It has been passed down in the family that there is Cherokee blood in our Ensley line and the only possible person would be Andrew’s wife. The Morrow’s that Andrew was associated with were known to have Cherokee lineage.
In 1994 my Aunt set a newer Tombstone for Andrew and his wife at Dills Cemetery. The previous “stones” were hand carved. Andrew’s was barley legible and the one for his wife was not. I would love to help my Aunt out as she has searched for the name of our missing ancestor for many years. We would love to be able to enter her name on the new Tombstone.
