In Response To: Re: SLAVE names RAPPAHANNOCK VA! ()
Hi Gail! Thanks for getting back to me! The oldest Dennis I have found is Newton R. Dennis who was born in 1864. He married Gabriel (b. 1865) The earliest census I can find on him is 1910. It's as if he dropped out of the sky! On this 1910 census he states his parents both were from VA. I can't find his parents anywhere. I thought that the Dennis slave owners in Rappahannock were William Dennis (b. 1796) and William's son Newton T. Dennis (b.1825). If you don't have the names of the slave owners and just the name of the slaves it's possible he is listed as a child. But any information would be great!!
