*Dionis’s name is evidently a truncated form of
Dionysia, which derives from Dionysius, which originally referred to a devotee of the Greek god Dionysos. The names Dennis and Denise are also derivatives of Dionysius.
Oldest House, also called the Jethro Coffin House, was built in 1686 as a wedding gift for Jethro Coffin.
