William Enyeart 1748-1828, with his two wives, Catherine Schell and Jane Norris, had an extensive family of children.  I recently had an inquiry to try and sort out all of the children that William Enyeart had.  I am curious to find out what other researchers have for this man!  I list 7 children to Catherine and 16 to Jane.  Some have suggested that there were many more!  If you have a list, please share it here, and we'll compare!

This is the list I have.  One source of information I had indicated that, except for the twin daughters who died at birth, all of William's children live to adulthood.  Even though it would be possible to fit another baby into this list (between Rebecca and Margaret, for instance), I can believe this is the complete list.

Thanks, Jim!  Your list matches mine exactly! :)  If other people list other children, will you post them here?
