Denison Family
   (Including Stutznegger, Ramsauer and other related Family Histories)

Hans Dinesen (an Immigrant from Denmark)  
Born 20 Jul 1824 in Copenhagen.  Died 13 Jan 1904   Manti, Sanpete, Ut. 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.

HERE is "HANS DINESEN (DENISON) DESCENDANTS" compiled by Ernest Samuel Denison
circa 1996.  Hans Dinesen (1824 - 1904) was born in Denmark and died in Manti, Utah.  This book
contains his personal history, translated from his own writing, and his descendants to the time of the
writing of the book. It is 229 pages.   (Posted 5 July 2014)

memories from the Hyrum Denison (1865 - 1932) and Katherina  Barbara Stutznegger Denison (1870 - 1937) family.
Hyrum Denison is son of Hans Dinesen (1825 - 1904) and Johanna Jacobsen Christophersen (1825 - 1880) and they
were parents of 12 children. It contains 120 pages.   (Posted 21 June 2013)

HERE is a translation of the Hans Dinesen, Sr. history commissioned by him using his original handwritten papers.
The translation was done first by a "Sister" Frandsen the second part by Eva M. Gregersen with some of their
personal communications contained within the manuscript.  This version of his history was obtained from Grant L.
Misbach who at one time had copies of the original translated papers from which this file was created.  It is believed
"Sister" Frandsen to be a descendant of Hans but Eva M. Gregersen was a paid translator.  It is not known where
these papers are at present.  This version of Hans' history has been kept from public view at the request of some
descendants who felt it too sacred for broad use outside the family.  It is hesitantly issued now due to the fact
the descendents spoken of are all deceased. [See the posting on this web site dated 26 July 2008]

Where did the Denisons come from? Denmark. Yes, but where in Denmark? Click on the links to maps.
Hans Dinesen's father was born in either Skalkendrup (Skalkendrujan) or Skelerup, Denmark.
Some documents put him in one, some in another. Fortunately, these two little Danish
towns are near each other on the big island of  Fyn. If one were to look at a modern day
map of Denmark and its islands it is easy to find these two possible towns.   -  2 Oct 2008

Hans Dinesen:  Fourth Wife?
Did Hans Dinesen really have a fourth wife?  It is shown that he did if you look at the pedigree information

three wives.  Larry and Trena Dodge did a complete examination of this matter from
source records at the Family History Library.  The results are in this report.

Hans Dinesen (most often spelled Dinnesen if you word search) is mentioned along with the birth of Ephraim Monarch, 18 Mar 1853

This is a multi-generation xerographic copy and does not read well! If you have a good, clean copy
could you share it with us? (Note: On the first line of this history it states Ephraim was born on the
19 Mar 1853 on the ship "Benjamin Adams"; this is believed to be in error as the records indicate
he was born 18 Mar 1853 [some say 19 Mar] on the ship Forest Monarch. Note by ahc.)

Ephraim Monarch Denison (or Dinesen) was born on the ship Forest Monarch, so Hans and Johanne
named him accordingly. He is the fourth  born child of Hans and Johanna.  He settled in Sterling,
Sanpete County, Utah, living there most of his adult life.  He and his wife Mary Ellen Johnson had
10 children.   These photos are from a multi-generation  xerographic  image and are of low quality.
Should any one have originals or good clean copies we would appreciate having them for posting.

UPDATE

The English translation spoken of here has been posted on this web site dated 4 June 2014 (ahc)

NOTICE: We have an English copy of the Hans Dinesen journal history -  the original of which he wrote
in Danish by his own hand.  It  has since been translated into English (done over the years by various translators)
The original Danish version has been lost and we are looking to find it in order to make a new translation of it..  
It is many pages in length  (over 200 total)  and has much detail  about the early settlement struggles in Spring City
 and Manti, the harsh winters, war with the Indians,  his wives, his children, his farming activities, work on the St. George,
Manti and Salt Lake temples  and his   contributions to the early church  organization  especially  among the  Danish in
the area. It covers the period from about 1824 to 1877 or so.  It would be of interest to his descendants and Manti natives.
If you wish to obtain a copy of it please contact the Webmaster of this page, telling who you are.  Thank you. AHC - 26 July 2008

         REQUEST #1:
We are looking for the original Danish, handwritten journal of Hans Dinesen.
If you know where it or a copy can be found, please inform the webmaster.
Our interest is in making a new translation
of it as there is reason to believe that certain information was left out and that some errors may have crept in during
the English translation now in hand.


REQUEST #2:
We are also looking for the journal of Hyrum Denison, youngest son of Hans.  
It was rumored to last be in the possession of his daughter Cleo Denison Jones Giles when she passed away (she lived in
Mayfield and was buried in the Manti cemetery in Oct 1985) but we don't know what happened to it afterwards.   Hyrum carried
his journals with him on the train and wrote extensively about life in Manti and his family while traveling on the train in his
occupation as a hardware salesman.  There is a lot of rich history to gleam from his writings.  If you know anything
about it would you let us know?
