DENISON CRARY.

Among the earliest settlers in Knox were the Crarys and Denisons, who came from Connecticut in 1798. Thomas Crary was born in Connecticut, October 12, 1744. He married Mehetabel Mason, January 9, 1772. They had nine children— Thomas, born in 1775; Mary, born in 1777; Mason, born in 1779; Eunice, born in 1782; Cynthia, born in 1786; Amos, born in 1788; Andrew, born in 1790; Ephraim, born in 1793; and Jabez, born in 1796. Amos Crary married Mary Denison in 1811, and had six children, named as follows in the order of their birth: Denison, Susan, Thomas, Horace, Sarah Ann and Esther. Susan removed to Iowa and died there. Thomas died in infancy. Horace removed, when a young man, to Schoharie County, and thence, in 1883, to Chicago. Sarah Ann also lives in Chicago. Esther lives in Iowa. The only one representing the family in the town at the present time is Denison Crary, eldest child of Amos, who was born June 30, 1812. Captain Henry Denison served the cause of the colonies in the Revolutionary war, and after coming to Knox was one of the most prominent early residents. He was one of the founders of the Old Knox Presbyterian Church, of which he was also a deacon for many years. He had seven children, named Henry, Daniel, Gideon, Mary, Sally, Lois and Esther. Henry removed to Pennsylvania and died there. Daniel became a physician, and lived and died in OnondagaCounty, which he represented twice in the Assembly. Gideon died in Knox, at the age of thirty-three. Mary married Amos Crary, and died in 1840, aged fifty-one. Sally died unmarried. Lois and Esther married, and died in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
