      Enoch Godwin of Sampson County, North Carolina

      Enoch Godwin was born about 1824, possibly the son of Jonathan and Mary Godwin.

      There are no Enoch Godwins on the 1840 North Carolina Census reports. There were 11 Godwins enumerated on the 1840 Sampson Co., NC census reports. Jonathan Godwin was one of them, enumerated on p. 37 along with Henry, Edwin, and William. Jonathan was born between 1770-1780 and had 3 males and 3 females (including 1 female born between 1770-1780 (his wife)). David and Enoch might have been the two males living with Jonathan on the 1840 census that were between 10 and 15 years of age.

      Enoch Godwin married Ester Unknown between 1846 (birth of Winnie Barefoot, probably child of Ester from previous marriage or out of wedlock) and 1850 (1850 Sampson Co NC census report with Enoch and Ester on it)

      1850

      Enoch Godwin was enumerated on the 1850 Northern District, Sampson Co. NC census report:

      Enoch Godwin, head, 24 yo (b. abt 1826), farmer, NC
      Easther Godwin, 20 yo (b. abt 1830), NC
      Winny Barefoot , 4 yo (b. abt 1846), NC --not sure who this is, but she married a negro slave, Silas West.

      Same page as Jonathan Godwin (Jonathan was 70 years of age, born about 1780, his wife, Mary Godwin, 63 years of age, born about 1787, both born in NC; Mary Godwin, 26 years of age, born about 1824, Eliza Godwin, 25 years of age, born about 1825, and David Godwin, 22 years of age, born about 1828. All born in NC.)

      1854

      Enoch Godwin was a co-administrator with David Godwin of the estate of Jonathan Godwin, Sampson County, North Carolina, Dec 1854. (Earlier estate sale by David Godwin, July 20, 1854).

      From the 1850 census reports, it looks as if David Godwin was the son of Jonathan Godwin because he was enumerated in Jonathan’s household. David and Enoch were enumerated on the same page and about the same age – David was 22 and Enoch was 24 years old, so it is probable that these two men were brothers and both sons of Jonathan Godwin.

      1856

      Enoch Godwin paid $175 to the estate of Nathan Godwin, Sampson County, North Carolina, November 18, 1856. Patrick Murphey was the administrator. David Godwin also had to pay $439.44 to the estate.

      -------------------------------

      There was another older Enoch Godwin who was possibly the son of Jonathan Godwin and Rachel Bullard living in Randolph Co., NC between 1800-1830. This Enoch was believed to have come from Sampson Co., NC along with his two brothers Elthedred and Nathan Godwin. He also moved to IN/IN/IA with his brothers about 1830.
