Pvt Enos Mitchell Campbell
Birth: May 8, 1831
Abbeville
Abbeville County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Jan. 8, 1865
Rock Island
Rock Island County

Enos was my 2nd Great-Grandfather.

He was the third of ten children born to John Enos CAMPBELL (1791-1870) and Elizabeth MITCHELL Campbell (1800-1870).

Enos was married to Matilda Tabatha HILL around 1850 in GA.

They had six children together:

Charles H. (1853)
John E. Daniel "Dan" (1854)
Archibald Thomas
Richard Wiseman (1858-1922)
Mary Elizabeth
Caroline M. (1863)

Enos served in the Civil War in Company E, 39th Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry, Army of Tennessee, Walker County, Georgia, known as the "Walker Light Guards". The regiment was led by his wife's brother, Captain Charles D. Hill. Another of his wife's brother's was also in the regiment, Private James B. Hill. Enos was captured near LaFayette, GA, on Dec. 5, 1863. He died of smallpox in Rock Island prison, Jan. 8, 1865.

Family stories have always said that Enos was sneaking home at night to visit his family, since his regiment was stationed nearby. Some men in his regiment were jealous of him, so they turned Enos over to the North. Matilda and the children moved to Texas soon after the war ended.
