John Henry Dennis, 1862-1950, son of Phillip and Mary Hauger Dennis, with his wife Dora Belle Fike Dennis, 1884-1961.

John Henry lost his first wife, Laura Teets, and six children to the "black fever" (typhoid) about 1887 to 1889. Although Dora Bell Fike was 22 his junior, they raised six children into adulthood, and were married for 50 years.
