Dennis Family Cemetery . Daisy Hill Road, Daisy Hill

Just through the entrance to the Daisy Hill Forest, on the left, are the Dennis family graves. James Dennis and his sister Nanny came to Queensland on the Flying Cloud in 1864, and James selected land adjoining what is now state forest. He married Mary Ann Markwell and they had eighteen children. Many family members are buried in this family burial ground. It is still in use.

Just through the entrance to the Daisy Hill State Forest on the left, are the Dennis family graves. James Dennis and his sister Nanny Barnes, wife of James Barnes, came out on the ship Flying Cloud in 1864. James initially worked for Samuel Markwell at 'Mungaree', which was William Slacks' former property. He married Mary Ann Markwell in 1867 and began selecting land in Daisy Hill from 1870. He and Mary Ann had 18 children. In mid 1874, four day old Thomas Dennis died. He was the seventh child and fifth son. The private cemetery was established at that time. The cemetery has continued to be used by the Dennis Family.
