Notes from Dick Wood:

 

Dillard Ensley,  Endsley/Ensley surname  researcher,  obtained his information about this family from internet, library resources and corresponding with others.  Much of what he had compiled and shared with me about this family line echos information about the families found in Mrs. Lucy Blair's book, JOHN BLAIR of GUILFORD COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA and Some of his Decendants. Mrs. John Roy (Lula Cummings) Endsley, provided most of the ENDSLEY/CUMMINGS/LOWRY information for that book.  Using the research of these very able researchers I was able to quickly gather more detail by obtaining death certificates, county court records, visiting cemeteries, reviewing tombstone publications and Census data, and talking to   living descendants.
