I am searching for family members withe last name of Enfield. There are several of them in Iowa. I am specifically looking for descendents of Philip Enfield from Pennsylvania, settled in Johnson County, Iowa. Samuel is his son, and my great, great grandfather. I found the family in the 1860 Johnson County, Iowa Census, Sharon Twp. They are listed as follows:
Philip Enfield 60 male Farmer Germany Rebecca 58 Female wife Germany Samuel 27 male farmer Germany John 22 Male Pennsylvania Peter 21 Male Pennsylvania William 19 male Pennsylvania Solomon 17 Male Pennsylvania Magdaline 15 female Pennsylvania David 13 male Pennsylvania Conrad 11 male Pennsylvania Sarah 28 female Pennsylvania in the next household I find: Daniel Enfield 29 farmer Pennsylvania Elizabeth 26 wife female Pennsylvania Susannah 7 female Pennsylvania Sarah 4 female Iowa Samuel 3 male Iowa Jane 1 female Iowa
Also, on this family I have Samuel, John and Solomon in the Civil war. Enlisted in the 10th Iowa Infantry, Company E:
Enfield, John. Age 23. Residence Richmond, nativity Pennsylvania. Enlisted Aug. 24, 1861. Mustered Sept. 6, 1861. Died of typhoid fever Jan. 1, 1862, Bird's Point, Mo. Buried in National Cemetery, Mound City, Ill. Section C, grave 2877.

Enfield, Solomon. Age 19. Residence Richmond, nativity Pennsylvania. Enlisted Aug. 24, 1861. Mustered Sept. 6, 1861. Discharged June 16, 1862, St. Louis, Mo.
One of Samuel's sons, Charles Frederick Enfield, is my Great Grandfather. He was born in 1875 in Johnson County, Iowa, and he died in the late 1950's, or early 1960's in Coon Rapids, Iowa and is buried there. I would appreciate contact with anybody that has information on this family! Thanks!
