"Civic Leader Succumbs at Sanitarium Sunday – DALLAS BANKER IS CALLED BY DEATH – E.O. Tenison is dead following operation for appendicitis – E.O. Tenison, Chairman of the board of directors of the City National Bank and for many years one of the leading bankers in the city, died at 12:38 o'clock Sunday afternoon at a local sanitarium. He underwent an operation for appendicitis a week ago, and his recovery was expected until midnight Thursday, when his condition took a turn for the worse. The patient had a sinking spell at 7 o'clock Friday morning, and a consultation of six physicians was held.

Rose from Messenger. – Mr. Tenison had risen from a messenger boy when 13 years old in the old City Bank of Dallas to the chairmanship of the board of directors of the City National Bank. He has been considered one of the most powerful influences in the banking business of the South. Born in Felicity, Ohio, Oct. 9, 1864. Mr. Tenison was brought to Dallas as an infant. He was the son of John Tenison, an Irishman by birth, and Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Tenison, a native of Illinois. His education was in the Dallas County rural schools and his financial training was begun at the City Bank when Col. William E. Hughes and his associates founded the institution. Through the various positions, Mr. Tenison rose to the presidency in 1903. He resigned from this position at the organization of the Federal Reserve System being called upon by the Government to organize the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. He was the first Federal Reserve agent here and chairman of the board of directors.

Chairman of Board. – Completing his task with the Federal Reserve Bank in two years, Mr. Tenison resigned in 1916 and established the private banking firm of E. O. Tenison & Sons, which was converted into the Tenison National Bank when the United States entered the World War. The Tenison National Bank was merged with the City National Bank April 10, 1920, and Mr. Tenison became chairman of the board of directors, which office he held until his death. He was at one time vice president of the Dallas Consolidated Street Railway. Mr. Tenison was prominent in the civic, educational, religious and social life of the community. He was a member of the Dallas Country Club, the City Club and the Dallas Hunting and Fishing club. His gifts to charity were numerous and recently he gave to Dallas, Tenison Park, as a memorial to their son, Edward Hugh Tenison. He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church. Surviving are his wife and three children, Mrs. Cruger T. Smith, Mrs. Dan M. Craddock and James C. Tenison, all of Dallas; two sisters, Mrs. Louisa Louck, and Mrs. Josephine Ferrell of Dallas; a half brother, Henry L.

Regrets expressed over death of E.O. Tension – Mr. Tenison's gift to the city of Dallas, Tenison Park, exemplified his thoughtfulness of those less fortunate than himself and in establishing a memorial to his son he performed a noteworthy public service, Emil Fretz said following announcement of the death of E.O. Tenison Sunday. "He was my personal friend," Mr. Fretz said, "I knew him since 1870, when he was a little boy and saw him make his way through the world. I have found great pleasure in the fact that he grew to be a big man in every respect he never forgot. He was a most worthy example." Deep personal grief was expressed by Lynn P. Talley, chairman of the board of the Federal Reserve Bank and Federal Reserve agent of the eleventh district, on his return to Dallas Sunday. "My friendship for Mr. Tenison is linked with my experience in banking," Mr. Talley said. "E.O. Tenison was one of the outstanding figures in the business life of Dallas," Nathan Adams president of the American Exchange National Bank, said Sunday night. "His death is a serious loss to Dallas. Mr. Tenison was recognized as one of the ablest bankers of the state and his death at a relatively early age is very unfortunate." "Mr. Tenison will be missed by the citizens and business interests of Dallas very much," J.B. Adoue said. "He was perhaps Dallas' most public-spirited citizen," Judge Henry C. Coke remarked. "He was a leading citizen in every sense of the word and his death is a serious loss to Dallas," Mayor Louis Blaylock said. "Mr. Tenison has done more for Dallas than any man I could name, and at the time of his unfortunate death he was preparing to do more than he had already done. In addition to that, he was my friend," the Mayor remarked. "There is only one opinion in the community," Col. J.T. Trezevant said in commenting upon the death of Mr. Tenison. "His life, when one considers the circumstances surrounding his early years, was in every sense remarkable. He was one of the ablest bankers the state has ever produced and was of a very unusual type exemplifying the fact that the man of energy, industry and intelligence can rise from the bottom of life's ladder to the top of it in this great American Republic."1

Louisa Tenison1

F, b. 6 September 1853, d. 21 November 1944
     Louisa was the daughter of John R. Tenison and Mary Elizabeth Rogers (daughter of Jane Rogers). She came to Texas when she was 14 from Covington, Kentucky, in a covered wagon with her parents, five brothers, and two sisters. It is assumed her mother died shortly after their arrival, because her father married Henrietta McDermitt on May 4, 1868, in Dallas, Texas.

Her father established the first saddlery business in Dallas, Tenison Brothers Wholesale Saddlery Company, which was carried on after his death by his sons.

Louisa was a member of the first Episcopal church established in Dallas. She had four children: Minnie, Anna, Josephine, and Mary. A photo of Louisa was published in The Dallas Morning News on September 3, 1933.1 Louisa Tenison was born on 6 September 1853 at Kenton County, Kentucky.1 She was the daughter of John R Tenison and Jane Rogers.1 She married Jean Baptiste Louckx before 1871.2 She died on 21 November 1944 at Highland Park, Dallas County, Texas, at age 91.1
