Notes: Enoch C. London made an application for a Tennessee Confederate
Veteran's pension on 8 May 1911 (S13145). Sallie applied for a widow's
Pension in 1931 (W10210). She may have applied earlier. There are a
lot of fragments of correspondence in Enoch's file that look like they
were correspondence from Sallie as early as 1919.
In his 1911 application, Enoch stated that he was born in Marshall Co.,
Tenn. in 1843. In her 1931 widow's pension application, Sallie stated
that she was born 17 Dec 1886, Enoch was born 3 Feb 1839. She
enclosed a copy of their marriage certificate (dated 9 Sep 1903).
Her surname on the marriage certificate was "Collins."
There is an Enoch C. London enumerated as a boarder in the Geo.
Montgomery household in Dist. 21 of Bedford County in 1900.
[NA Series T623, Roll 1558, page 183]. His age was given as 65,
born Feb 1835 in TN. His occupation was Veterniary Surgeon.
Also in the 1900 Census [NA T623, Roll 1587, page 48] in the 5th
District of Marshall County, Sallie was enumerated in her mother's
[Mattie Endsley] household. She was b. Dec 1886, her surname was
given as "Endsley."
In the 1910 Census of Marshall County [NA Series T624, Roll 1512,
page 71, Enoch London is shown as age 70, married a second time
for 6 years, farming. Sallie is shown as wife, age 23, first marriage,
6 years, mother of 2 children, 2 children living. Daughter, Zetta,
was shown as age 3 and a son, Jebba??, [legibility, spelling?] was
shown as age 1.
Enoch C. London died 24 Dec 1914. His Marshall Co., Tenn.
Death Certificate # 561 reported he was born 3 Feb 1845, son of
Nathan London who was born in TN & Nellie London, born VA,
The informant was W. H. L. Endsley, Belfast, Sallie's uncle.
Enoch C. London, Jr. died 28 June 1917 and was buried at Round
Hill. His Marshall Co., TN Death Certificate # 552 gave the
following information: Birth date: 12 Jul 1913.
Parents: Enoch Cantral London
Sarah M???? Endsley
Informant: Mrs. Mattie Endsley
Buried at: Round Hill
Jewell London died 25 Nov 1941 and was buried at Round Hill.
His Tennessee Death Certificate # 25166 reported that he was
born 3 Jul 1909. Parents were reported as Enoch Cantrell
London and Sarah Collins. He operated a road grader for the
county. Informant was "Miss Zadie London (sister)". His wife
was Mary Lou London.
Enoch London's CSA tombstone marker was very near the tombstone
of Mattie Endsley (his mother-in-law) at Round Hill. I noticed it
and several other London markers close by and wondered why the
London markers were so near Matties, but did not copy any of them
in my 2001 visit to the cemetery. The Marsh, Marsh & Whitesell
book, CEMETERY RECORDS OF MARSHALL COUNTY
TENNESSEE shows on page 177 stones for
Enoch C. London Co H 17th Tenn Inf
Vetron London 1904-1905
E. C. London, Jr. 1913-1917
Jewell London Jul 3, 1909-Nov 25, 1941
The Cemetery record book indicates that the cemetery stones were
copied April 24, 1958 by Ralph D. Whitesell & Lounora Pickins and
re-checked 1979 by Helen & Tim Marsh.
I have listed Vetron London as a child of Enoch & Sallie London because
of the close proximity of the stone to the other London family stones and
because of the known 9 Sep 1903 marriage date for Enoch & Sallie. In
his 1911 pension application Enoch stated that he had had three
children; two girls and a boy. Looking at the 1910 Census and the family
group page, I conclude that Jewell (male) and Zeda (female) were the only
other two children known to have been born to Enoch & Sallie by 1911,
and, therefore, Vetron must have been the third child Enoch referred to
in the 1911 application and she must have been female. The Tennessee
Confederate pension application did not ask if the children were living.
