Was Enoch from the lineage of Cain?

There was an Enoch from the lineage of Cain, but he is not the one spoken of elsewhere in the Bible, such as Hebrews and the book of Jude. It is interesting that there are similar names in both lineages.

Cain’s Lineage

Gen 4:17-19
17  And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.
18  And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.
19  And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.

Seth’s Lineage

Gen 5:6-26
6  And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:
7  And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters:
8  And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years: and he died.
9  And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan:
10  And Enos lived after he begat Cainan eight hundred and fifteen years, and begat sons and daughters:
11  And all the days of Enos were nine hundred and five years: and he died.
12  And Cainan lived seventy years, and begat Mahalaleel:
13  And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel eight hundred and forty years, and begat sons and daughters:
14  And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years: and he died.
15  And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared:
16  And Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters:
17  And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and five years: and he died.
18  And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch:
19  And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:
20  And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years: and he died.

22  And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:
23  And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:
24  And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

25  And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech:
26  And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred eighty and two years, and begat sons and daughters:
