What We Know

 

 

James and Sarah Pitman Dennis were each the children of families who had settled in the Marblehead area in the earliest of days.

The confusion over the parentage of James Dennis, Jr. will be more clear on the page of James Dennis Sr. and his wife Mary Charles.

Unfortunately, there were practically no probate records available that would give us a clue to what the various members of the family did. We know from the will of James' grandfather William Charles that he was a blacksmith.
