Who was born in Enfield in 1821?

To get an idea who might have been born in Enfield the year it was created, we looked at the 1850 census — the first United States census that listed all members of each household, not just the head of household – and chose Enfield residents who were listed as age 29, so, presumably, born in 1821. Friend of Enfield and Hector History Bob Wixom then researched those residents, and discovered some of them were born in 1821 and some were not; some were born in Enfield and some were not. They provide an varied and interesting view of early life here.
