Dennis Crossroads


Jefferson County Tidbits # 22   Dennis Crossroads

Daniel Stephens was one of the first settlers at Stephens Crossroads now known
as Dennis Crossroads.  It is located about 2 3/4 miles east of Red Lick.   don't find it listed on a map .. however, at one time it was a busy intersection.  There was a store there ..  Mizpah Methodist Church  .. the Stephens/Mizpah Cemetery.  The old log house of Daniel Stephens still stood when I first moved into the area in 1945.  It is now gone ... fallen in.  I did an oral interview with Mary Pearl Starnes Phillips several years ago and some of that will be in a future article.  She was the daughter of W. Scott Starnes (24 Dec 1882 - 10 Feb 1959)  and Pearl Darsey (13 Aug 1894 - 4 Oct 1955) Starnes.   He was the Justice of Peace for many years .. and court was held at his house at Dennis Crossroads.


W. Scott Starnes was the son of Samuel Scott Starnes (25 Jan 1858 - 13 Dec 1903) and Ruth Rebecca Stephens (6 Nov 1855 - 6 Mar 1938)

Mary Pearl told me that Daniel Stephens was a veteran of the War of 1812 and fought in the Battle of New Orleans.  When he was passing through Jefferson County, he liked what he saw of this area and returned here to stay.
