HISTORY OF HUNTINGDON COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA, by J. Simpson Africa, 1883
Vol. I, page 302.
"On the same stream (as Abraham Corbin), in the upper part of the township (Juniata), and partly in Penn,
William Enyeart began his improvements about 1770. During the Revolution he sought protection in the
fort at Standing Stone (now the city of Huntingdon), and when no Indians were supposed to be about tilled
his farm in company with a neighbor by the name of Reed, who improved an adjoining tract of land, one
standing guard while the other worked. They several times escaped barely with their lives,on one occasion
Enyeart jumping down the bank of the river and running to the fort near Marklesburg (Fort Hartsog), thus
avoiding the savages, who waited to waylay him should he try to return to Huntingdon. William Enyeart
was several times married, having five (living) children by the first wife and sixteen by the second. Of
these, John moved to Indiana, William lived near Marklesburg, David in Shirley, Polly married Issac
Vandevender, and Betsy married Joseph Norris. By the second wife there were sons, Silas, James, Joseph,
Thomas, Benjamin, Levi, and Abraham, all of whom removed to the West, and daughters, who married
Peter Heffner, William Wilson, John Heffner, John McMonegal, William Watson, David Corbin, and
_____Graffius.
