Having seen horrific fighting with the U.S. Marines in the South Pacific during World War II, Frank "Buddy" Enos and his wife Mary Louise settled in the middle of Mt. Pleasant, Westmoreland County, PA, where their home was widely known and admired for its beautiful hanging flowers.

The son of James M. and Elizabeth (Eberhart Sargent) Enos, Frank was employed for 30 years by Fisher Body and General Motors and for three decades was a member of the Pennsylvania National Guard." Said the Greensburg Tribune-Review, "He was known by all who traveled Main Street, Mt. Pleasant, for his Easter display and also for his beautiful spring and summer flowers which grew in front of his home." He received the Mt. Pleasant Rotary Club's Community Above Self Award, and was featured and pictured in a feature story in the Aug. 9, 2001 edition of the Mt. Pleasant Journal, headlined, "Enos, Example of Service Above Self."

In the spring of 1992, Frank and Mary graciously opened their home to the founder of this website, accompanied by their nephew Jack Campbell, for a visit to talk about family history. More>>>
