a. Note:   NI8596
Note:   Charles Julian: The identity of Sergeant John's wife Catherine is not known, but when William Fradenbergh petitioned for his father-in-law's land it was stated in the affadavit of Perry Gifford that Sgt. John had left his property with the Tunis family, relatives of his wife Catherine. Tunis is a not uncommon Iroquois rendering of the name Dennis owing to no voicing distinction in the languages ( cf. e.g. "Tunis Halftown" in the Buffalo Creek Treaty of 1826 ). The Dennis Family in the area are descendants of Ezekiel Dennis of New Jersey who married a Delaware woman named Julia and resided at Point Abino, Upper Canada. Henry3 of Caistor's grandsons George Henry5 and William5 both married granddaughters of Ezekiel Dennis, so it would not be unexpected if Sergeant John's wife also proves to have been part of this family. In order to be related to the Dennis family, who were indeed Delaware through Ezekiel's wife, Catherine must have been either a daughter or a granddaughter of Ezekiel Dennis the settler, and given her age she would more probably have been his daughter. Ezekiel Dennis' daughter Catherine is at present believed to have married Daniel Forsythe, however the Dennis family is not yet well documented and many dates remain speculative ( e.g. Forsythes are not mentioned in Ezekiel's will of 1803, although this is the same year Catherine is thought to have married him, she being aged 30 or more at the time ). I have a hunch that Sgt. John's wife Catherine was Ezekiel Dennis' daughter, and that the Catherine Dennis who married Daniel Forsythe was Ezekiel's granddaughter, but I'm unable to show this as yet is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
