From "Inman Family in DuBois, IN" - by Alma Chattin Lindbergh. After the death of his father, Parmenar Inman, in Schuyler Co., IL, Enoch, his mother Martha Pasqual Inman and several brothers and sisters moved to DuBois Co. which they had left in 1840. His mother remarried and Enoch lived with his uncle, Abednego White Inman, in Martin County until his enlistment in the Union Army in 1861. He was assigned to Co. I, 24th Reg. IN Vol and was discharged on Dec. 24, 1865 at the expiration of a second term when he re-enlisted as a veteran volunteer. At that time he held the rank of Sgt. He saw service in MO and TX and was hospitalized in both places because of severe rheumatism.
For a few years after his discharge he farmed in Martin Co., IN, then moved to DuBois Co. where he purchased the land that later became the site of the town of Birdseye.
Enoch was a farmer by occupation and was active in political and social organizations of the County. He and his wife were members of the Methodist Church and Enoch was a charter member of the G. A. R. Post in Birdseye.
