The following data is not verified, but based on circumstancial evidence, such as locations, times, places, and conjecture.
Based on census records of 1850, I believe Daniel's mother to be Elizabeth, as she was shown living in same household. Based on her
name, the only Dennis I can find who married an Elizabeth in Ross County, OH in the early 1800's (prior to 1831, when Daniel was born) is Jonathan.

64) William Dennis (Based on circumstancial evidence)
b c 1758 Worcester Co., MD
d c 1835
According to the book, William Dennis had a son named Jonathan. They moved to Ross County in 1804 according to a Ross County history.
128) Johnson Dennis (Based on circumstancial evidence)
b c 1730
William Dennis was born about 1758 in Worcester County, Maryland. A tax list of 1783 lists "William of Johnson Dennis".
Johnson Dennis owned property in northern Worcester County in the Pittsville-Willards-Powellsville area east of Salisbury, Maryland.
William owned no land.
The following data seems a little confusing. Donnock Dennis Sr. had sons named Donnock Jr. and John. Donnock Jr. had a son named Johnson, and John had
a son named Donnock. I believe the lineage goes as below:
256) Donnach Dennis
512) John Dennis
b. 1675/76, Somerset Co., Maryland.
1024) Donnach Dennis
b. 1645, Ireland?
d. 1715/16 Somerset Co., Maryland.
