PREFACE.

 The preparation of a record of my father's family has been inspired by the perusal of a record of the descendants of Captain George Denison, of Stonington, Conn. (of whom my father was one), prepared and published by John Denison Baldwin, of Worcester, Mass., and Rev. William Clift, of Mystic Bridge, Conn., grandsons, respectively, of Sarah Denison Baldwin and Anna Denison Clift, who were daughters of John and Abigail Avery Denison, of Stonington, Conn. This John was the great grandson of Captain George Denison.

Originally, my intention was to commence with and give the record of the family of my grandfather Daniel Denison, Jr., and Catharine Avery, his wife, who migrated from New London, Conn., and settled at Stephentown, N. Y., in 1771; but I have found it impossible to get the information necessary to compile a full and correct record. I believe the record of my father's .family is absolutely correct and complete.

Such information as I have been able to obtain of the families of my father's brothers and sisters I have inserted.

By the permission of Messrs. Baldwin and Clift, I have borrowed largely from their admirable Genealogy of the Denison family; indeed, except for them the result of my labor would appear insignificant. They are particularly entitled to the thanks of the descendants of Captain George Denison and I have assured them they have mine.

George Burlingame Denison.

Muscatine, Iowa, February, 1884.
