The Denison Burial Ground was established by the Denison family in 1698.  This hallowed ground is the final resting place to over one hundred Dension family members. The stones are made of gray slate,red sandstone and granite.  The grounds are presently owned and maintained by The Denison Society.




One of the many Denison buried here, is Elisha Denison who died on the Prison Ship Jersey during the Revolutionary War.
