Robert Williams Robert Williams has a question!

Hi, my name is Maureen and I manage the YDNA here for my husband Robert (Bob) Williams. His YDNA67 turned up just one Williams but a whole slew of Tennis and Dennis surnames so, I'm here hoping to find how and when the surname change happened. On the YDNA67 he has a genetic distance of 2 from William Wall Tennis, whom google tells me passed last April. He is also a genetic distance of 2 from Richard Robert Tennis whose email is no longer in service. At Genetic distance 3 he has matches to Donald Anson Dennis, Chester Dennis, Mr. Ryan Michael Smith, Paul C Lewis Jr., Carl C. Dennis. If you are connected to any of these men or have a match to Gary Thomas Williams, I would love to connect with you via email. Just let me know here and I'll ask the admin to forward my email address to you. I've already connected with Carl Dennis in the Williams surname project and am pretty excited to hear from him. Thanks in advance to helping me solve this mystery :) Maureen

Hello, My name is Susan Chancellor Rogers. My GGGGrandfather was Silas J. Dennis, born in Georgia in 1839. He married Susan C. Moncrief on October 18, 1860 in Harris County, Georgia. They had four children: Silas Jackson Dennis, Jr., Sarah Electra Dennis, Robert E. Dennis and Emma L. Dennis. He lived in Harris County, Georgia and Lee County, Alabama. Although other family trees have his death in 1893, I have not been able to document his death. I am trying to find further information on his parents. Thank you!

Howdy all, Photo of my Gr-Grandparents, William Isaac and Mahulda "Kenton" Dennis. William is the son of Joseph H. Dennis, b: 1827, d:1899. Mahulda's father was Simon Kenton, b:1817, d:1891. William and Mahulda were married in April 1873, so suppose picture was taken around or after that date. As a side note for those who did not know, Ann Tennis Fraser passed in Feb 2013. She was an ardent researcher of our family. At times I could not keep up with the stream of E-Mails she would fire at me. I will certainly miss those conversations. By now I am sure she has met all those elusive ancestors. RIP Ann. NOTE: Carl C Dennis

Carl, I spoke to Ann once, she was so nice and knowledgeable! I saw she passed some time ago, was sad to see. My distant grandfather is Joseph Stokes Tennison, born 1818 in Missouri and posted earlier on this page. I opened up your link above and did not see him on there. Do you happen to know where he might fit on that tree?

By the way, I am Pam Tennison-Rindt, my dad is Jack Tennison. I used his DNA for analysis.

Howdy, Link I referenced above is no more. Look here for DENNIS/TENNISON DNA info.

I am managing my husbands dna testing. I have a one step Ydna match at YDNA12 with someone surnamed Dennis. Can anyone tell me what this means? The person concerned is being managed by a relative. She has tested to 37 but I don't get the feeling she will be wanting to go any further with this . Jenny Dennis

I manage my brother's DNA and he's tested to 37 marker. We are in the process of testing all 4 siblings with I have an extremely large get file on my Dennis line. Not sure if our kit is what you are looking for, 19636. Melody Dennis-Sherrod

No - it wasn't your kit I mentioned. If you have your tree put on ancestry I would be interested in seeing it. Let me know your user name. My husband's Dennis family were in Cornwall England from at least 1700s.

My user name is mgsherrod, let me know if you see anything of interest. My 3 siblings and me just mailed our DNA for the Ancestry. I am hoping to make more connections with this DNA attempt than what FTDNA has given. Melody

I have had a quick look at your Ancestry tree and I can't find anything that links with. The Dennis line my husband is descended from comes from Cornwall.

I am looking for relative of William B. Dennis, Iowa or Ohio.

Can you give more info? Dates or any other family members would be great. William Dennis was a VERY common name. My Dennis line is Ohio, Iowa, Dakotas and I have William(s) in my line. Robert is actually my father who has passed away since his DNA was done....Karen

Steve, I believe your sister came up in my DNA matches (transferred from Ancestry).. but you do not. I am thinking when my dad's results come in, you will be in his matches. I was hoping to confirm your sister by messaging you privately.. If she is your sister, then we should be cousins. Thank you!! Jennifer Dennis Orender

Steve Austin Dennis in the back seat and my father, Wylie Bert Dennis, is the pilot. 1945 on the Flying D Ranch, Borden County, Texas.

This may be a coincidence, but William's second son Robert was born in Anson Texas in 1916. We theorized that either William briefly moved his family to Texas, or Robert was born while family was visiting in Texas. All of William's other children were born in Tennessee.

To my know we have not had any relatives in Anson.

Hello! I am Jennifer Dennis Orender. I am working with my dad, Rick, and should have his DNA results added to the group soon. Meanwhile, This is a picture of my earliest Dennis relative, William Robert Dennis, and his wife Dollie Griggs. William was born 13 Sept 1885 (or 1883 depending on the record) in Tennessee. Rumor has it, he was abandoned at a Nashville hotel. Eventually he made it to Milan, TN, where he met Dollie. He died 11 May 1972 in Evansville, IN. Thanks!!

Hello, I am Sue Dennis Greem from dennis/ Tennision group #3. I have just joined the St. Mary and Charles counties MD project. I am hoping that the other members of group # 3 Dennis group join also so we can expand our knowledge of our early ancestors. Just go to our profile page to join additional groups. Thank you.
