John Dennis Halifax Co VA
Posted by: Michael White (ID *****2041) Date: August 23, 2011 at 10:38:02
  of 4155

Their was a Will of John Dennis 1779 of Halifax VA
a Name on the Will I suspect is my 5xGgrand. I would
like information on this John Dennis Sr, he had a son
John Dennis. My 5xGreat grandfather was Robert White,
a Robert White is mentioned on this will in an area our
Robert was living at that time period.

On the Will, (posting below) he states:

"...to be sold a set of blacmsmith tools (beside the
set above mentioned) now in Carolina under the care
of ROBERT WHITE..."

My Robert White was just across the border from Halifax
VA, in Caswell District of Caswell Co NC, is on the tax
polls with his father in law Wm Whitehead, from 1780-1787.

Robert White Sr was a Colonial Blacksmith, and well known
for his trade in Union Co SC (formerly 96th dist)where he
arrived with his father in law in 1788.

Any help on this John Dennis would be appreciated.
Thank You,
Mike White
