According to various sources, Dennis' mother's name was Bridget. And two of his siblings were William and Ellen. Is it possible that either of the two censuses below refer to Dennis and his family? Dennis was supposed to have been living in Pennsylvania in 1880 but both of the families below are living in New York state. It is noted that Dennis' death record shows his parents' names as Henry and Ellen. The informant for THIS record, it is also noted, was Dennis' last child "Bessie". T.N.

Dennis, you are the proud father of Frank whose hand I had the privilege of shaking in Boston at a 1977 luncheon in honor of his wife, Ayn Rand. Thank you for raising a noble gentleman!
