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 remotely 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.
DNA Testing:

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.

Photo Requests:

Thank you to all of the volunteers who have taken the headstone photos for me. I really, really appreciate the work you do. Almost all of my photo requests are for my direct line family, a collateral line, or surname I am tracking or studying.

Seeing a photo of the headstone for a great great grandparent brings waves of emotion.

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: Helen M. Stoddard
Hello Marilyn,

I'm not sure I or the original creator of the memorial provided the existing sketch, and the claim of where Helen was born. I most likely was interested in getting the memorial transferred to me for continuity purposes of the associated family lines before someone with less knowledge attempted to grab the memorial. I spent a great deal of research time just to identity Helen's father Grove's confirmable parents and Grove's whereabouts.

While I have no problem either way regarding the location of Helen's birth, give me some minor amount of time to review my notes. I'm ankle deep in non-genealogy work at the moment. Regards.

Pleasant Grove Cemetery
You have a photo request in the Pleasant Grove Cemetery that I have claimed. I have photos of what I believe is the entire cemetery, unless somehow I missed one or two. It is about 4000 photos so if my claim expires do not worry. I will try to transcribe all of them. A few are very old and very hard to read even in person but I'll do my best. Hopefully among the 4000 is the your photo request. I am sorry if I missed taking a picture of yours or if yours is one of the ones I can't read at all.

RE: Chenango County Cemeteries
Hi Marilyn,

That map link you provided is incorrect - it gets you in the neighborhood at best, though you'll likely never find it. Brackel (or Brakel) Road became Route 23 when State Route 23 was rerouted to Lower Cincinnatus from South Otselic. I've never heard the cemetery referred to as Brackel Road Cemetery, but hey, someone thought it a good idea to call it the Fosgate Farm Plot. So it goes. I plan to go up this spring and attempt some cleanup, though I don't hold much hope - it is in dreadful shape.

RE: Sands Niles Kenyon
Thank you very much. I didn't Know there was more than one on the F A G site. The pic of 1st Hopkins Cemetery popped up, wit F A G as the source for his death information. I can now delete this source and date. Thank you again. If I can upgrade my computer skills, I would love to do what you guys are doing with the grave/cemetery pics and documentations!

RE: Sands Niles Kenyon
I've been researching 1st cousin-7times removed. Parents were Aaron and Lucretia(Tacey)Kenyon. His birth date was 1803 and according to the info on Find A Grave that linked me to your site, his death occurred June 17, 1860. There is a pic of 1st Hopkins Cemetery but no pic of stone itself. I am confused because my research on finds him alive and well in the Federal census of 1870, and New York census of 1875. He appears to still be living with his wife Jane Mariah and (his sister-in-law?) Martha A Chesbro (also described as "niece" or "maid". I believe the info is pretty thorough but the death date from Find A Grave is throwing me for a loop...
