Mothers note; * "There is another DENNIS burying ground
back in woods on the other side of the street- In back of former Bennett farm, probably an older DENNIS graveyard"
*Two headstones were found in housing development part of the old Dennis Farmstead re:
Peter Cook Feb 25th, 1802 and his wife Elisabeth Dennis Cook (I was told only one headstone has survived.)
*I have another family note that says (Mr. Disney) (old Dennis Homestead) at bottom of the note says "This is my Daddys Grandfather"
*The note is not in my mothers hand wrighting so it may have been written by my Grandmother Alida Dennis?
