In our possession is a copy of the Military Journal of Major Ebenezer Denny: An Officer in the Revolutionary and Indian Wars, published in 1859.  It is dedicated to Joseph A. Murray (nephew of Ebenezer Denny) in the following way: Joseph A. Murray With the regards of his friend W.C. Denny (William Croghan Denny (1823-1866), son of Harmar Denny (1794-1852), grandson of Ebenezer Denny). Glued into the copy are two handwritten notes signed “JAM” (Joseph Alexander Murray) concerning Captain Walter Denny, brother of William Denny and thus uncle of Ebenezer Denny. Note 1: Contains information from legal documents that were in J.A. Murray’s possession. Note 2: Contains information given to JAM by Margaretha L. Denny, youngest daughter of the Rev. David Denny, about her grandfather Walter’s children. JAM signed this note “April 1884”.
