Last Update: October , 2001
The stories of the first six generations of the Dennis' family are brought together from many different sources. Some of those sources have been put in writing from times before Moses Dennis lived. It would be impossible to give everyone credit for their hard labor. Over the years, all the Dennis family has wanted there to be a record of their family. We are lucky to have so many family members keep track of their family's histories. Some of the journal entries and Civil War letters are entered in these writings without any changes to the wording.
My family and I have put as many stories as we can find together for all to enjoy. That is the only credit we will claim.
