Obituary of George Dennis
George Dennis was born at Green Camp, Marion County, Ohio May 5,1833; was married to Anna Hollenbaugh August 14, 1855, to which union were born eight children, five sons and three daughters, William, Chas., Frank, John, Arthur, Hettie, Carrie and an infant unnamed, the son, Frank and three daughters having preceded the father in death, thus leaving the wife, four sons, together with thirteen grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren to mourn their loss. The name of Mr. George Dennis had become almost a household name in Delaware. Perhaps no man ever resided in a community who was better known and loved than he was by all who knew him. Gentle, patient, God-like at all times, a lover of all chil- dren, and a friend to all, ever striving to dispel the clouds of gloom hovering over some poor, troubled soul with words of encouragement--such was his aim in life. The writer knew him well in late years, and knows whereof he speaks. His was a long life of earnest, faithful, toil, a never-ending effort to lighten the burden of others, His hope, deeply grounded in the faith, almost his last words a plea to be taken to his heavenly home. In retro- spection of such a life and in the wake of such a victory, we humbly confess that our loss is his gain.

Obituary and Card of Thanks were found on an undated typewritten page
in an envelope that had belonged to my grandmother, Addie Dennis. I
tried to keep it true to the form in which it was typed.
