A Branch of the WV Dennison Family Tree

A Branch of the WV Dennison Family Tree

I just stumbled on this message board. I'm so excited.

My grandfather was Raymond Lewis Dennison who was from Harrison County, WV. He is listed on ANCESTRY.COM.

I happen to have a family tree that traces back to ~1800 that my great uncle Ashby P. Dennison did.

The story is that in the mid-late 1700's my great-great..grandfather Patrick Dennison eloped with the daughter of the mayor of Dublin (Lord Courtney).
They were married on the ship that brought them to America.

In looking at my info it appears that the family settled in the Harrison County area of WV and some have been there ever since.

At the moment my work load prevents me from putting any of this on line.

However, my daughter Jessica and I are looking forward to sharing information.

Looks like we are "cousins" down the line from James Lewis Dennison, John Ross, Anderson, Edmund Lewis, Manley to Raymond. Would love to share information. My e-mail is

Difference In Information on Anderson Dennison

I have found a match between my information and the information given by Sandra Shrader and TED.

I have Anderson Dennison born 1/2/1795 and married to Ellen Skinner.

However, the information from my great uncle lists Anderson as the son of Patrick who immigrated from Ireland.

This part of my tree always looked odd because of the dates given since Patrick was married and immigrated around 1750, but Anderson was not born until 1795.
I have no idea where my great uncle got this information from. One item I have says that the story of his marriage was passed down through the fammily.

It seems to me that James and John may be two generations missing in my tree.

I will be very interested in the information on James Lewis and John.

Now I'm determined to find the time to get my tree put on the web, meanwhile I'll be on the message board.

I am sorry I don't have anything to contribute but a request for help-
Looking for Joseph Dennis 78 yrs old in 1860 Sevier Co., TN census which would make his birthdate 1782 he was a wagon maker born in VA and his wife was Elizabeth b 1795 in TN they married ? had a daughter Margaret in 1833. In 1870 Sevier Co., TN census Eliabeth Dinison was listed as 75 keeping house adn witha 37 yr old servant adn Joseph 3 and William A. 11/12. Not sure about wher her husband Joseph was at the census talking in 1870.

I need help with this line. Thought maybe you would have seen something because of your link into VA.

As you well know they did not always spell their name the same each year in the census.

If you can't I understand - please reply if you think of something.
