He was born in East Tennessee in 1817, his parents being Thomas and Charity Beason Dennis both natives of North Carolina from which they removed to Tennessee in the early period in the history of the state.. Thomas Dennis was of Irish birth and parentage, and his mother decended from English ancestors. Mr. Dennis of our sketch removed from his native State in 1841 to Shelby County IND, and two yearswas engaged there in farming, thence removing to Schuyler County MO. where he lived for until August, 1864 when he came to this county. He first located in Competine Township, but after two years purchased 80 acres on Section 15 of Highland which constitutes his present homestead. He has added to his original purchase until he now owns 102 acres which are finely improved and in a good state of cultivation.

The parental household of our subject included twelve children of who Mr. Dennis is the only one living. He was married in his native State to Miss Cyrene Yadon, a native of his own state and the daughter of William and Margaret Capps Yadon; natives of the same state. Of this union; there were born six children; as follows: William A. the eldest died in infancy; Silas M. is engaged in the grocery business in ottumwa, E.J. became the wife of J.R.
