Dennison, Albert S., was born in Whitestown, Oneida county, N.Y., March 12, 1845. His education was obtained in the public schools and the Rome (N. Y.) Academy, from which he was graduated in 1862. The following year he enlisted in the 3d N. Y. Light Artillery, Battery I, serving his country faithfully in that company until the close of the war. After the war was over he entered the office of Dr. S. F. Tremain as a dental student and after three years' hard study opened an office on his own account and was engaged in practice for a period of twelve years. In 1872 he removed to Watertown and engaged in the manufacture of waterproof paper bags (an invention of his own), which was the first successful attempt to use paper for carrying wet goods, such as oysters, molasses, pickles, etc., and was the germ of the present paper box that is used for the same purpose; after three years in that business he entered the service of Mr. Herrick in the flour and feed business, where he remained until 1885, and then embarked in his present business, that of manufacturing rubber stamps, stencils, etc. In 1869 he married Mary C. Gridley of Kenosha, Wis. Mr. Dennison is a prominent member of the A. O. U. W. and the G. A. R.
