JENNISON, Samuel, antiquary, born in Brook-field, Massachusetts, 24 February, 1788; died in Worcester, Massachusetts, 1 March, 1860. He went to reside with his uncle in Worcester in 1800, and was connected with the Worcester bank, first as accountant, and until 1846 as cashier. He was also treasurer of the Worcester county savings institution from 1828 till 1853. Mr. Jennison was for many years connected with the American antiquarian society as librarian and corresponding secretary, and was also town-clerk of Worcester and treasurer of the state lunatic asylum from 1847 till 1857. He wrote both in prose and verse, and collected a large mass of valuable biographical material, which is incorporated in the second edition of Dr. William Allen's "Biographical Dictionary" (Boston, 1882).
