Enoch served in Captain Robert Love's Company, 43rd US Infantry, during the War of 1812. He enlisted November 20, 1813 and was honorably discharged on August 1, 1815. Enoch wrote in his pension application that he enlisted near Asheville, NC, then marched to Raleigh then Fayetteville, NC. He went by boat to Wilmington, then on to Federal Point and Smithville. He engaged in building a fort at Federal Point in 1814 and guarded the mouth of the Cape Fear River. He drew a federal pension for his service and his widow drew a widow's pension after his death.

Enoch's wife was Mary Long and his father was William Wedgbare Underwood. Enoch's daughter, Martha Ann Underwood, married Thornton Bradley. Thornton's pension record is also posted on the Fannin County web site.
