William Robert Dennis was born in Chapel Hill, Tennessee. At the time, Chapel Hill was in the county of Bedford, which later became Marshall County. He 1st married Mary Eveline Sheffield on 1 Mar 1906. Together they had two daughters, Sallie Lee and Lucile Irene. He left Evie when the girls were very young and married Maude(?). He died of Pulmonary Tuberculosis in 1920. I don't think either of the girls saw their dad again and they never met their dad's wife. For some reason, Sallie Lee asked one of her daughters to take her to Shelbyville for the viewing and visitation of Maude Dennis when she died, the 1st and only time she saw her. Since the family never spoke of Will Dennis again, nothing much is known about him nor his 2nd wife.

Thanks to Diona Dickerson for volunteering to photograph the cemetery marker of Will and Maude Dennis. The date of her death was never filled in.
