Nathan Denison (1740-1809) was one of the first forty shareholders in the Susquehanna Company to settle five new towns in the Wyoming Valley in February 1769. Denison became a popular leader of the pioneer settlers from Connecticut. He served as a Justice of the Peace and colonel of the local militia, distinguishing himself in the ill-fated Battle of Wyoming in 1778.
