In 1853 A.B. Enloe was admitted to the bar. He was a representative to the Lower house of the Tennessee General Assembly in 1876.
From "I Had A Real Good Time" by James Moffatt Brice, a nephew of A.B. Enloe's wife, Amanda, we find the following description:
Major Enloe was a mightly man, a great lawyer; tall, strong, robust, gifted with power and strength of character expressed in every line of his fine, strong, Roman face. "But," speaking of Naaman the Bible historian said, "he was a leper." So we have to say of Major Enloe, but he was a hard drinker; but the world was full of hard drinkers then, this being nearly half a century before the passage of the 18th Amendment.
There was A.B. Enloe and his wife, Amanda, who was father's sister. Mr. Enloe was an able lawyer; a grim, stern, forbidding man who looked not unlike the pictures of the old romans. People generally, even the lawyers, had a healthful awe of Mr. Enloe. There were three children: Chester, Walter and Mayme. Walter turned a disreputable vagabound and ne'er-do-well. Abraham
was born on 6 April 1827. He married Sarah Amanda Brice
at Troy, Obion Co., Tennessee
, on 9 January 1872. Abraham died on 18 March 1888 at Troy, Obion Co., Tennessee
, at age 60.
