Enoch, second son of Benjamin 3d, was a man of large benevolence, which was extended to all around him, as he studied the good of friends and neighbors. He was Selectman and Assessor of Rochester for over 20 years; held many other important town offices; and was also a noted land surveyor. In the time of the Revolutionary War, the care of the soldiers' wives was consigned to him, his deep interest in them giving him the name of the "Father of the Town." His memory was cherished with much respect by those of the community who knew him personally.
