Stephen b dennis lists his place of birth as Canada West. He lived in Allegan County, MI by the year 1860 and on. He had a wife named Martha (Cook or Peck). Sons John, Ephraim, Christopher, Stephen J, and daughters Mary Ann and Margaret, I cannot find his parents or really any info on this family. Any bit of help would be appreciated. Thank you!

I found numerous Dennis' married between 1750-1799 when looking for parents of Jeremiah Dennis who married Sylenia French 1818. One was even married to a Jean Cook (bride). I have seen the Cook's in the Friend's Meeting records in Gloucester too. Many Quakers from that area ended up in Canada...and if you happen to run across Jeremiah, please let me know! :) ~Honi
