Re: FRANK DENNEY DIED 1866 ANNAPOLIS MD
Hi, I've just returned from a 3 week trip out of town.Where did you find that she was from Holland? Here is what I have on Rosana;
.ROSANA CROUCH/Grusswas born Abt. 1825, and died October 17, 1900.She married (1) FRANK DENNEY.He died August 12, 1866 in Annapolis, MD.She married (2) PHILIP GISI October 17, 1872 in Morgan County.He was born Abt. August 1824 in Baden, Germany, and died October 06, 1887 in Oliver Springs, Morgan, TN.
More About PHILIP GISI:
Burial: Davis Cemetery
Military service: Bet. July 21, 1863 - March 24, 1865, Civil War CO B 11th TN Cavalry Union
Children of ROSANA CROUCH and FRANK DENNEY are:
i. C M DENNEY, b. Abt. 1856.
ii. GEORGE W DENNEY, b. Abt. 1858.
Philip Gisi is my gg grandfather, his first wife was Catharine, Rosana's sister.A family member in the area thought their maiden name was Crouch, although the only official record I have is for a Knox County marriage of Philip to Catharine which gives her last name as Gruss.
Philip's first wife Catharine is shown as being born in Wurttemburg, Germany.She diedin 1871 when a limb from a tree blew down and struck her head, during a storm.
Rosana's marriage to Philip did not last long, I believe they did not divorce (he was Catholic) she just moved back to Dutch Valley, but she claimed his Civil War pension after he died.
