604 We stopped at Salt lick church(Bath County), there is a very old cemetery there.
Graves scattered all over the hillside. It wasn't well maintained but it wasn't bad.
I found a wrought iron fenced area. There were two graves in it. The stone had fallen but it was a large monument. I could only read one side of it.
Salt lick is in Bath County.

605 What was this man's name? Several civil war documents were signed James Jesse Dennis, while others signed Jesse Dennis. Could his given name have been James, but he prefered to use his middle name? Jesse was a popular Dennis name during his era. So, was his name James Jesse, or Jesse James? DENNIS Jesse J (I10853)

John TENNIS/Tennyson came to America about 1650 from England, possibly with Thomas Gerrard's adventurers to Maryland. The first record of his name in Maryland is in 1651 when he witnessed the will of Nathaniel Stiles.
From depostion records taken in 1653, he is thought to have been born about 1628 in Holland. His wife, Elizabeth (maiden name unknown), was an indentured servant to Peter Johnson for five years, but married John Tennisson before her indenture expired. Elizabeth is believed to have been born about 1634 in England. John Tennisson promised to pay Johnson for the time that Elizabeth did not serve. Records have not been fround of that payment.

In 1656 John bought land from Richard Preston in St. Mary's County, on Leonard's Creek called "Stratupt." In 1667 he bought additional land from Thomas Gerrard. This is where he lived and his homplace was known as "Persimmon Point" and there is a creek in St. Clement's Hundred called "Tennisson's Creek" named for his property line.

John Tennison's name appears in court records several times during the next few years and in 1673 he was before the court and "desired the earmark of his cattle and brand mark for horses" to be a " fire fork with three prongs."
But the most interesting court appearance was in 1682 when John was summoned to court on 25h Oct to hear his wife's complaints against her husband. The court records show that "she could not live peaceable and quietly with him .....prayed allowance of competent maintenance might be awarded her." John denied the charges and thought them unreasonable but did confess in court that he never entertained the love and respect for his wife and neither afforded her the countenance in his house due for man to wife. John had banished Elizabeth from his home some 2-3 years earlier. Elizabeth was rewarded one bed and furniture, all wearing apparel and yearly for time to come 300 pounds meat, 3 bushels corn, 100 pounds tobacco, during her natural life. This quite possibly is the first divorce on American soil!!

His will was probated just four months after this court appearance. He appears to be a man of means as the inventory shows he owned Delft china place settings, and apparently was not illiterate as his inventory included two Bibles and several books. At the time of his death he had, among other items, several parcels of land, two slaves and could afford a serving maid who is mentioned in his will.

Elizabeth remarried shortly after John's death to James Green (in 1684) and they soon brought suit aginst Justinian (executor of John's will). James Green continued the suit after Elizabeth's death (1684/1701) to get her portion of John's estate. He eventually won.

615 [This information came from researcher Jim Gabbert of 245 North Point Street, San Franciso CA, 94132 in letter/ phone call to Sue Green in 1994. Mr Gabbert's gggreat mother was Elizabeth Tennison Gabbert]

Elizabeth married Azariach in 1820 and divorced him in 1826. Divorce document can be found in the "Tennessee Divores, 1797-1858, (See Sources)
She took their young sons with her. She told the court that he was not taking care of her during her illness. She married her doctor (Michael Gabbert) in 1827. and had three children with Gabbert. It is unclear if the two (or 3) Dennis children used the surname DENNIS or adopted the name GABBERT.
The Gabbert / Tennison family was in Fayette Co., TN in the 1830 census with 2 males under the age of 5 (one possible Dennis), 2 males 10-15 age group (Dennis males); Michel Gabbert age 30-40, and female 15-20; 1 Female 40-50. Elizabeth should be listed as 30 yrs. age.
In the 1840 census the family is in Memphis, Shelby county, TN, next door to Fayette Co, TN and close to Memphis, TN.
In 1850 the family has one son living with them, Solon Gabbert, age 17 (b 1833) and a student of medicine.
Mr. Gabbert died 10 Oct. 1855 (Death date from Microfilm at U of Memphis Library-and Memphis- Shellby Co., Publication)
