    This is a family history manuscript written by R.A. Dennis.  (I am not sure if anyone really knows the exact time frame for when this began or when the last notes were made. There are events or dates mentioned in the manuscript that indicate 1940 - 1959)  Keep in mind as you read this that the language and terms used were normal for that time period. There are known errors in the manuscript along with improper spelling of many words and names. The handwritten manuscript has been typed as written, errors and all. This is being provided as a research tool for you. If you find a link you should pursue it through further research and obtain documentation to substantiate the research.  Notes have been added to this copy of the manuscript that I have included in brackets.
