Birth: 1756
Death: Apr. 23, 1838
Essex County
Vermont, USA

David Denison, Esq. was born in 1756; lived in the south part of town. He was one of the most prominent citizens during his life. Just what time he came to Guildhall we are unable to state, but he must have come in the early part of the settlement of the town, as his first wife, Sarah Spaulding, died here Aug. 20 1787, aged 30 years. His second wife was Anna Paine who was the mother of a wonderfully intelligent and smart family of children; among whom was Ann, the wife of Hon. Anderson Dana, and mother of Hon. Charles A Dana of N.Y.; she was one of the most talented women who ever lived in Guildhall, and had a large influence over the community, and will be long remembered for the good which she did; it can be said of her truthfully, "that she rests from her labor, but her works do follow her." She died here Sept 3 1849.
Taken from The History of Guildhall, Vermont.
