EDWARD D. DENNISTON -
Died on the 18 inst. at his home near City Hill, three miles south of Dresden, EDWARD D. DENNISTON aged 74 years.
The subject of this notice was born on the 25th day of May, 1801 at or near New Bridge in Bergen County New Jersey. While yet a boy he with his parents moved into the town of Seneca, Ontario County, N.Y. Here he learned the trade of a carpenter and worked on the old Glass Factory near Geneva when that was built. He worked at his trade until about twenty years ago when he abandoned it for that of a farmer. He lived a few years on the "Old Downey Farm" two miles north of Dresden. He then bought the Nabby Sherman farm and moved on it, here continued to reside up to the time of his death.
In 1826 he married Miss Mary Jones of Seneca and went to housekeeping in Benton, where they had born unto them seven children, all of whom survive him, as does Mrs. Denniston.
Caroline married Thomas Spencer, Elizabeth married George Hayes, Margaret married William A. Hayes, Perry married Ann Meek, Theodore H. married Fanny Smith, Dewitt C. married Susan Meek and Johnson married Louisa Dunlap. Mr. Denniston enjoyed very good health up to within four years when he had a shock of paralysis of his right side and tongue since which time his speech was broken so as to be unable to talk as to be understood--since the shock he has gradually failed 'till he became almost entirely helpless. Mr. Denniston was a peaceable, quiet, good neighbor, loved his home and family. He lived to see hundreds of his early acquaintances numbered with the dead, before the messenger called for him.
