    • Reuben moved with his mother and step father Edmond Lyons from North Carolina to Overton County, TN. HIs marriage to Susan Arnett was one of several marriages between the two families. Reuben, Susan and family moved to Morgan, IL between 1834-1836. Several members of the Dennis family relocated there.
      The "Find a grave" site has two burial listing for Reubin Dennis. The first is in Morgan County in Jones Cemetery. Find a grave lists a second Reubin Dennis as buried in Jones Cemetery in Sangamon Co., IL. Sanganom County was adjacent to Morgan. Family history has Reuben as dying in Morgan County and buried on the neighboring land of Watemon Jones family hence the confusion of the "Jones Cemetery". One son William H. Dennis died 1874 is also buried in the same cemetery. Susan Arnett Dennis was buried in Rogers Cemetery in Waverly, IL.

      "Waverly: On Friday night, Reuben Dennis, Sr., whose serious illness we spoke of last week, breathed his last. He was born in February, 1800 and was consequently 83 years old. He had many relatives in this neighborhood, though his brothers and sisters have long since passed away.

      The funeral services were conducted by Rev. J. K. Miller, at the residence, Sunday morning at nine o'clock and the remains interred at the Jones Cemetery, six miles west of here. W. H. McCullough and wife, of Jacksonville were present, the deceased being Mrs. McCullough's father. A number of sons and daughters of the deceased reside here or in this vicinity."
