Nettle Creek, Indiana
Family moved from North Carolina to Indiana in 1822.
"Young Thomas Dennis set forth with his young family in his wagon drawn by four horses, and slowly made his way over hill and dale, toward the great North West, the land of promises, the land that flows with milk and honey -- providing you work hard enough for it, and after a six weeks journey arrived in the vicinity of Dublin; but the wolves were so numerous and so troublesome in that vicinity, that he moved over to the neighborhood of Economy."
