Biography

Roger Enos (1768-1841) was one of the original proprietors of Irasburgh. The town was deeded to his sister Jerusha when she married Ira Allen. Enos was associated with Heman Allen in nearly all the transactions of the proprietors during the first years of the settlement. He served as Justice of the Peace for Chittenden County, was deputy collector of customs during Madison's administration, was representative in 1812, 1821 and 1824, and was a member of the 1828 Constitutional convention.

Roger was a son of Major General Roger Enos, officer of the Revolution. The General's other children included Pascal P. and Jerusha, who married Ira Allen. Jerusha's son Ira H. Allen was executor of Roger Enos' estate.

Scope and Content

The collection consists almost entirely of bills and receipts of Roger Enos, handled either by himself or the executor of his estate, Ira H. Allen. It is arranged chronologically in one box. The bulk of the material dates between 1830 and 1845 and divides almost evenly between Enos' pre- and post-death years. Included are several deeds concerning Irasburgh property and a few promissory notes.

The few other family papers include a letter from Pascal P. Enos to Jerusha Allen, writs of power of attorney and form of pension power of Jerusha Enos (widow of General Roger Enos), two letters to Samuel Prentiss, U.S. Senator, from the War and Treasury Departments concerning the status of her late husband, and an inventory of her estate. Other family members represented in the collection are Emily P. Enos and Ellen M. Enos.
