I am looking for any relative of Earven, Arzie and Jahue Dennis. They all came to California from Conecuh, Alabama, with there parents Joseph and Jessie. They arrived in the Los Angeles area in the late 1940's. Late in the 1950's, Joseph and Jessie moved to Santa Barbaba, where they lived until they passed away. Earven also went to Santa Barbara, but was living in Ventura at the time of his death ( June 2006). I don't know much on Arzie and Jahue, other than they lived in Los Angeles County, Ventura County and Santa Barbara County's, going back and forth between the 3.
Joseph married Jessie Lee Emmanule about 1924, in Conecuh Alabama. He is the son of Henry (born 1855, in Alabama) and Mary Dennis ( maiden name and birth date/place is unknown). This is where I am stuck. I assume that Henry's parents were slaves, as there is no information I can find on him before 1900. Any help would be appreciated.
