[edit] Slave Ownership

Slave ownership seems to have been continued by George's descendants. 20 years after George's death, in the 1790 census[9], George (son) has 2 slaves, Elizabeth (wife) has 8, although Darby is listed as having none.

[edit] Misc.

  • This family tree claims, without sources, to trace the Ensor line back to 1475.
  • A number of Chilcoats and Ensors who died in the 1800s are buried in Bosley United Methodist Church's Cemetery. It doesn't appear that George or his son are there, but his grandchildren and so on may be.
  • Here is a scan of George's entry in the 1790 federal census.
