Notes
Appears on Tax Lists: 1836- Samuel Dennis- 100 acres-District 8;
1837-Samuel Dennis-100 acres-District 8; 1838-Samuel Dennis-100
acres-District 8 and also William N. Dennis-District 4-1wp; 1841-Samuel
Dennis-100 acres-listed as carried over; 1842-Samuel Dennis-100 acres
District 8, and also Thomas Dennis 1wp; 1843-Samuel Dennis-100
acres-District 8, and also Thomas Dennis 1wp; 1848-District 7-Thomas
Dennis-1 wp. Samuel disappears off the tax lists after 1843. Does this
mean he has died? Also our William N., son of Samuel would only be ten years
old when he is listed as having 1wp. Does this mean that there is ANOTHER
William N., possibly Samuel's brother???

Appears in 1850 census (TWICE. Once as Benjamin, once as Samuel, same
man)...does NOT appear in 1840....but is on 1836 tax lists????
