Denison Family (Including Stutznegger, Ramsauer and other related Family Histories)
Hans Dinesen (an Immigrant from Denmark), born 20 Jul 1824 in Copenhagen and died 13 Jan 1904 in Manti, Sanpete, Utah. In his journal Hans stated the proper spelling of his name was "Dinesen" so that is what we use whenever referring to him. However, once in America his descendants chose to use more "American" spellings and you may find in genealogical documents spellings such as: Denison, Dennison, Dinnesen, Dineson or variations thereof. Hyrum Denison and his family chose to use "Denison" nearly all the time whereas Ephraim Monarch, Hans' son born on the ship coming from Denmark, chose to use "Dennison" most of the time.
