Enos Blair short stores

Oh, that little devil…

Dear Rosa, I love a mystery. I don’t write them, I solve them. Yup, you can call me “Detective Sue” – or some other cool moniker like “Cookie”. I had wondered why your grandfather, Louis Blair, would show up in Civil War records as Enos Blais and now I have a pretty good hunch. He […]

Enos Louis Blair, citizen of the United States of America…

Dear Rosa, So this is where it officially began for your grandfather, Enos Blair. Here is where he became a citizen. But the story stretches much further back. Back to when he emigrated to the US in 1848 (please see the previous post) .  I wonder how many fought in the Civil War who weren’t […]

a mysterious conundrum…

Dear Rosa, What a twisted journey your family took from Canada. Every time I root around, I uncover another layer and another mystery. Enos Louis Blair. Was he the same man who appears later as simply Louis? or Lewis? He was married to Adaline Bordeau. Is she the same person as Mary A. Bordo? Names, […]

He waited and watched the fidgety beast with the foul temperament pace the small enclosure. The animal snorted as if to warn him to back away. He would of course, do nothing […]

A lively spirit…

Dear Rosa, And so your grandfather, Enos Louis Blair, had enlisted in the Union Army in 1861. He was a mounted riflemen  who mustered in Rouses Point, New York. I’ll pick the story up from there and let my imagination do the rest… ******************* Enos stepped into the stables and drew a deep breath. All […]

A letter from Enos to Adaline…

Dear Rosa, In light of the stunning discovery I made this week about your grandfather, Enos Louis Blair, I thought to write a letter… from him to his wife as he prepared to leave New York with his regiment.This is, of course, a work of fiction from an overactive imagination, as Louis could neither read nor […]
