"Stephen Denison took an active part in many of the sieges and battles of the war of 1812. He was a life-long Whig and worthy citizen, leaving to his posterity an honored name." [Goodspeed's History of Tennessee]

The ancestry of Stephen Dennison is provided briefly in a sketch of the family compiled by Herbert Eugene Dennison in 1932, a copy of which is available in the public library in Lexington, Tennessee. "The earliest Dennisons of record living in America were three brothers who came to America from Scotland prior to the American Revolution. One of these settled in Massachusetts, one in New York, and one in Virginia....

"I am a descendant of the brother who settled in Virginia. The first known one was named David Dennison. The name DAVID has hung on to our family since that time. This David is known to have fought in the French and Indian War. His son, whose name was Robert, was a captain in Washington's army at Valley Forge. The name of his wife is unknown. He had two sons, Robert and Stephen, both of whom were soldiers and fought in the War of 1812.

"In 1812 Stephen married Elizabeth Ingram in at Chatham, Pittsylvania County, Virginia. (The towns of Chatham and Ingram are still on the map.) Stephen was in the battle of New Orleans under General (later President) Andrew Jackson. While away in the army a son was born. His name was Robert Robinson Dennison, whose grandson I became....

"After his discharge from the army after the War of 1812, Stephen and Elizabeth moved first into North Carolina and then into Tennessee, and settled on a farm near Chesterfield, Tennessee, about 10 miles southeast of Lexington, Tennessee...."

"Washington Hill Denison was born in Henderson County on a farm 10 miles northwest of Lexington, January 5, 1878, the son of W. W. [sic.] and Martha Fuller Denison.

"He attended the country schools of the County and took the course prescribed in the old Southern Normal University at Huntingdon, Tennessee, receiving the B. A. Degree from this institution in the classes of 1900 and 1901.

"For a number of years he taught school in Henderson County, and other sections of West Tennessee. He was admitted to the bar in the summer of 1903, taking the first examination held by the State Board of Law Examiners at Jackson in June 1903.

"He began the active practice of law at Lexington in January 1907, and at the same time performed the duties of County Superintendent of Schools of the County, though he had practiced law at Decaturville for a few months prior thereto. He served for ten years as County Superintendent in connection with his law practice, and retired voluntarily at the end of that period, not being a candidate to suceed himself at the January term, 1917.

"He formed a partnership for the practice of law with Hon. E. W. Essary in 1915 and this relationship lasted until 1929, with the exception of the time spent on the Chancery Bench and Count of Civil Appeals.

"He was appointed Chancellor by Governor A. A. Taylor in June, 1921, to suceed Chancellor J. W. Ross when Ross became Federal Judge where he served until the regular August election in 1922, when he was defeated by the former Governor Tom C. Rye. Soon thereafter, Denison was appointed to the Court of Civil Appeals by Governor A. A. Taylor to serve during the sickness of Judge Sid Clark of Trenton, serving during the fall session of that Court at Nashville, 1922.

"Early in 1923, he resumed the practice of law in partnership with Hon. E. W. Essary. He became an independent candidate for judge of the 12th Judicial Circuit in the August election, 1926, defeating Judge N. R. Barham, the Democratic candidate for that office, and after a long contest with his unsuccessful opponent, was declared elected by the Supreme Court of Tennessee, the last of May 1929, assuming the duties of that office the first of June 1929, where he is now [1930] serving the people of the 12th Judicial Circuit of Tennessee.

"He married to Katherine B. Gaston of Nashville, Tennessee, daughter of Rev. and Mrs. B. J. Gaston, on the 20th day of March 1917....

"Judge Denison has the reputation of being a fair and honest Judge. He is a republican, and was elected Judge in a district that is overwhelmingly democratic. This alone speaks for the confidence the people put in Judge Denison." [History of Henderson County]
