    MG: (1) Extact from the Marriage Book, Clermont Co., Ohio: Enoch Demaris to Eve Moyers-Oct 17 , 1833; by Peter Hastings, Deacon of M.E. Church

    HISTORY: Personal account from descendants: "Following the war, the family joined an immigran t train, consisting of over 100 wagons and journeyed westwards across the plains. During th e long trip west, they suffered many hardships and lived on a diet of bacon and bread and te a and coffee with an occasional rabbit for fresh meat.
    While previous trains had been attacked by Indians and they saw many graves of pioneer s who had been killed by roving Indainas they fortunately traveled during the period of truce , and while they saw many Indians, they were unmolested.
    Their wagon train from Iowa consisted of 63 wagons and 70 people and upon their arriva l weary and almost destitute, tradition has it, one found a wallet of gold which sufficed t o tide them over the winter. One had hesitated about going West, as all he had was $50. Bu t the older brother said we will put our money together, his $500. They did this.
    Enoch arrived in the Walla Walla Valley, Sep 4, 1863. He homesteaded the Walla Walls Ri ver and lived there until he died. He is buried in Bowlus Cem. Mary, his wife, was buried t here also, Oct 5, 1904. Tradition claims that he filed on the homestead while Abraham Lincol n was President and proved up during Andrew Johnson's Administration."

They had 10 children - John, Margret, William, Jacob, Enoch Jr., Henry, James, Sarah Ann, Mary Ellen and Amos Leach.
    They settled on the Walla Walla River where Meryl Demaris, his great grandchild, lives at the present time. Enoch Demaris died November 3, 1877 and was buried in the Bowlus Cemetery east of Milton, Oregon.
