Enos Evans served as a private in Col. John McKinnon’s company during the Florida Indian Wars.
During one battle, Enos was shot in the neck. According to John Love McKinnon’s book, History of Walton County, Col. McKinnon refused to leave a man in the battlefield. Col. McKinnon found Enos, threw him over his shoulder, mounted his horse and carried Enos to Col. McKinnon’s home where Col. McKinnon removed the bullet which was lodged near Enos’ spine. Enos was promoted to major. In later years, Enos referred to the colonel as his favorite surgeon.
Enos Evans was first established as a Florida Pioneer in 2004
