Enoch Fruit, brother of Edmund, was born in Randolph Co., NC 22 May 1790, d 6 Mar 1848 Monroe Co., MO.
He was twice marred: 1] Cynthia Clark, b 27 Feb 1795, d 16 Feb 1835, d/o Isaac and [Miss Campbell] Clark, whom he married on 14 Sept 1815 in Christian Co., KY. 2]Susan French, d 6 Mar 1848 Monroe Co., MO, whom he married ca 1835/36.I do not have a list of any children.
In looking over the children of EDMUND Fruit, he named a son "Enoch", who is believed to have been born ca 1824 IL. Could it be that the census of 1870 was misread, and he was 46 instead of 76??? That would be just about right to be Enoch, BROTHER of Perry. Just a thought, as I know how hard some of those census pages are to read.
