BACKGROUND NOTE



George W. Enslow was apparently a native of Hart, Michigan, who after service in the Civil War, migrated westward and at some unknown date settled in Nebraska. In 1879 he was a grain dealer in Alexandria, Thayer County, and later he was reputed to be in the general store business in Meridian. He apparently moved to Lincoln, as in 1892 he was credited with being engaged in the general business of farm loans. He died in Chicago, Illinois and was buried in that city.
