      Enoch (Francis, William) born in Rowley (Byfield) ; removed with his father to Arundel (Cape Porpoise, now Kennebunkport) Me. Witnessed the will of John Smith of A. April 7, 1748. Removed to Topsham and later to Brunswick, Me. His children afterwards made their home at Pownalborough (since called Wiscasset), a little farther east.

      "Enoch Danford, of Brunswick, Me." was one of the sureties of Samuel Wilson, of Little River, administrator of the estate of Robert Wilson, of Topsham, Me. April 12, 1783.

      Enoch Danford was a mariner on the ship "Vengence" commanded by Capt. Thomas; engaged June 27, 1779, discharged Aug. 27, 1779 ; service two months on the Penobscot expedition. Roll sworn to in Suffolk county. We find no other man to whom this record is applicable, for the son Enoch was at this time doing duty in the army. So we conclude that the fiitlier, although as much as fifty-two years old, was the sailor here described.
