"Dr. Enoch Agnew died at his residence in Union County, Miss. at 15 minutes after 2 o'clock on the morning of Thursday, March 2nd 1871, in the 63d year of his age. Dr. Agnew was the eldest son of Samuel and Melinda (Dodson) Agnew, and was born in Abbeville District, S. C., October 30th, 1808. He graduated from the Medical College of South Carolina in the spring of 1830 and practiced in his native community. About 1831, he united with the church at Due West, then under the pastoral care of his brother-in-law, Rev. E. E. Pressly. On the 22d of November, 1832, he was united in marriage with Miss Letitia S. Todd, daughter of Andrew Todd of Laurens. In the fall of 1839, he removed to Due West Corner and in conjunction with the practice of his profession, kept the boarding house which had been erected to accommodate the pupils of Clark and Erskine Seminary. After two years, he removed to a residence he had erected in Due West. He gave up the practice of medicine about 1845 and engaged in mercantile business.

In 1852, he removed from Due West to Tippah [now Union] County, Miss. Here he settled in the bounds of Bethany church and the following year was chosen a ruling elder of the Bethany A.R.P. Church."
