Decendants of Ennis namesake visit train museum

The decendants of Cornelius Ennis came through town to vistit the Railroad and Cultural Heritage Museum at 105 NE Main street. As far as anyone could remember, it is the first time a relative to anyone featured in the museum has came to visit . Interesting facts were given about Cornelius in the article. Apparenly according to journals he was a blockade runner during Civil War much like the character Rhett Butler in Gone with the Wind. Also the article gives emphasis to how important City Lake was to keeping the railroad head quarters in Ennis.
