Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family history since 2007. To my surprise and delight, I've been able to locate the burial locations of many family ancestors for several generations back. I wouldn't have thought this would be possible when I first started.

My main focus is on my Kenyon paternal ancestors, who migrated to New York State shortly after the American Revolution, then migrated westward to finally reach California shortly after the turn of the century, circa 1904.

I've discovered a lot of interesting things about my family. For instance, there are quite a few females in my direct line, who died when giving birth to a child.

Following the birth of my second child, I had a complication. I did not know then what I do now - several female ancestors before me, died giving birth. It is probably just as well that I didn't know or I may have panicked!
Y-DNA helped me identify my Kenyon paternal family line.

The testing was done with Family Tree DNA, where I am the co-administrator of the Kenyon Project.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who have taken the headstone photos for me. I really, really appreciate the work you do.

I download many of the photos onto, giving credit to the photographer.

I am very happy to make transfers to direct and collateral line ancestors, unless I have some personal attachment to the memorial page. Just ask.

I try to be very careful with the information provided on memorial pages I create. Occasionally, I discover that I have made an error. If you see something that is incorrect, let me know. You can use the edit link to send me an email. That is the best way, because it will link me to the page you are referring to.

By the way, if I have made duplications, please let me know.

Thank you,

Marilyn Kenyon, PsyD.

RE: Charles Kenyon
Cemetery records show that Charles died in the Mendocino State Hospital and when the hospital closed all of the 1200 ashes were brought to the Ukiah Cemetery and buried together on this spot.

Yes, there are other Kenyon's buried else where in the cemetery.....Peggy

Frederick Lamont Kenyon, III
I got pics today per your request for Frederick Lamont Kenyon, III's gravesite.
I guess you know that this is a memorial stone and that he is not actually buried here.

Margaret Kenyon in North Kingstown.
Sorry, hit enter before I was ready. I have been trying to locate all the great aunts and uncles here On Find-A-Grave. Margaret was found as I Googled here and came up with information at Ancestry that matched her. Using her last name I then found her in the Rhode Island cemetery database. I have submitted the edits to her name, date and place of birth, place of death as it matches my records. I have also added the edits for her parents. If you have questions, feel free to ask!

RE: Benjamin F. Kenyon
I had similar issue with my ggreat grandfather I have his burial record he is buried in Lenawee County but his stone is in Ottawa County with my ggreat grandmother.

But I wouldn't unrequest you never know he may be found. If I could get ahold of sexton for that cemetery I could see about if they have records. I haven't had any luck with other cemeteries.

or maybe be other volunteer that already has that so don't give up hope.

Kenyon children in Greenwood Cemetery, Coventry RI
In the Greenwood Cemetery, Coventry RI you had entered some Kenyon children. I ran into their names when doing some genealogy researching on the Kenyon family. I requested photos to try and place whose family these children were in. The person that looked for the gravestones had no luck and stated: "There are no Kenyon Children Headstones in this section. If there are any, they are buried or missing."
Lydia Kenyon 1840-1842
Henry Kenyon 1846-1847
Abby Kenyon 1851-1853

Do you have any other information as to why they are thought to be buried there, and who their parents might be? Thanks

Daniel Phelps 1761-1834
On Daniel's Find A Grave memorial #34333036 I believe Barrett Phelp's wife should be Hanna Bigelow 1730-1806.
Mary Anne Dyer 1699-1764 is the wife of Noah Phelps
1694-1764, they are the parents of Barrat.
