I am looking for his parents, dates and places of birth, marriage and death. Also any siblings.

I am related through both Enoch and James.
Enoch's son Israel married James' daughter Lydia Ann. They had a daughter Mary Elizabeth Johns who married William Dexter Nicholson. They were my ggg-grandparents. My maiden name is Nicholson.

Hello!
Stumbled across this message while seaching for family on my grandmother's side. Her GGrandfather was Enoch and Grandfather was Joseph. I remember her telling me that he had twin brothers Israel and Isaac ( not sure if the twin part is true). Would appreciate any info you can share and I would share what I have also. Have not been woking on this extensively - am just getting into this part of my family history.

Enoch was my gggrandfather. He and his wife, Anna Peebles had 12 children. The tenth born was Joseph I. Johns born in 1837. My records show that he and his wife had 6 children but none were twins.

Wow! What a surprise to get an answer after so long. I think Israel and Isaac were Joseph's brothers, not children. Do you have names of Enoch's and Joseph's children? I have names my grandmother gave me, but hard to know who was who. Through which of Enoch's children are you descended?

There was an Isaac who was the son James ( son of William and Isabella)

Do you have any dates?
