History Of Central Oregon, 1905
Enoch came to Dufur with his brother Andrew, Jr. in 1872 and was the sheepherder and stockman of the family, who studied law while herding sheep and became a prominent lawyer of both the Dalles and Portland. He jointly founded Dufur with his brother A.J. After the death of his first wife, Susan Zimmerman, he married Carrie Ella Menefee, daughter of William R. Menefee.

My notes from family History:
E.B. was active in the legislative process & in the formation of the laws and Constitution as Oregon passed from a Territory to a state. My mother, Mary Spears Menefee said that when he died [after she and my father were married] the State of Oregon had a minute of silence in remembrance of his contributions to the State. My grandfather, Frank, read law with E.B. and became a law partner with him until my grandfather and grandmother were divorced. She was the daughter of E.B.

Researching the Multnomah Oregon County Land Transactions makes sense because his child, Willie Jacob Dufur [2531], died in 1880 in Near Portland, OR (Multnomah County) and he was married in 1882 in Dalles, Wasco, Oregon.

Researching the Oregon 1905 State Census Records makes sense because his child, Edith Adelia DUFUR [13], was married in 1889 in Fairview, OR. (Coos County) and he died in 1926 in Salem, Marion Co., OR.

Researching the Oregon 1875 State Census Records makes sense because his child, George Harrison Dufur [315], was born in 1875 in Dufur, OR. (Wasco County) and his child, Willie Jacob Dufur [2531], was born in 1878 in Dufur, OR. (Wasco County).

Researching the Oregon 1870 State Census Records makes sense because his child, Edith Adelia DUFUR [13], was born in 1869 in Portland, Multnomah, Oregon---see notes (GSEST. Coos County, OR) and his child, Douglas Stephen Dufur [153], was born in 1870 in Portland, OR. (Multnomah County).

Researching the Oregon 1885 State Census Records makes sense because his child, Burnham Dufur [2532], was born in 1883 in Dalles, Wasco, Oregon and his child, Douglas Dufur [283], was born in 1887 in Oregon.

Researching the Marion Oregon Cemetery Records makes sense because he died on 7-JUN-1926 in Salem, Marion Co., OR.

Researching the Oregon 1880 Census makes sense because his child, Willie Jacob Dufur [2531], died in 1880 in Near Portland, OR (Multnomah County) and he was married in 1882 in Dalles, Wasco, Oregon. The 1880 census is important because it contains birthplace information for parents of the people listed, as well as the relationships between people living in the household.

Researching the Vermont Civil War Service Records makes sense because he was born in 1843 in Williamstown, VT---see notes (GSEST. Orange County, VT) and he was married in 1868 in East Portland, OR. [now Gresham] (GSEST. Orange County, VT).
