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.
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: 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.

Hi- Even though Eunice's name is not on the stone I posted a photo of the back of Henry's stone for you.

RE: Henry Robert Besse
You're very welcome. V, 472 wasn't used until a year after Eunice's death. I saw the Interment Control form showing her to be buried next to him. Although there's no listing I will check the back of his stone to see if she's with him and not next to him on my next trip to Ft Rosecrans.

RE: George Parham

I found an obituary that says he was to be buried in the Atlantic Cemetery by the side of his wife.Oddly enough she is not in the WPA records or the cemetery book.I no longer deal with the sexton at the cemetery so am unable to verify their burials.So they are probably buried there but never had stones.

Best regards,

Marilyn - I do not know how the Wisconsin Historical Society works. I spend most of my time in the Whitewater Public Library where they have extensive records on some of the people buried in Walworth County and the Anderson Library - also in Whitewater - which is on the campus of University of Wisconsin-Whitewater also has extensive records which I also use. I find more information in the county I am researching so have never gone to the state level.

Your transfer request falls outside the site's guidelines. If you are not familiar with these, please read the Frequently Asked Questions (sometimes referred to as Help With Find A Grave) for more information.

I am always happy to correct, edit, add to or link any memorial I manage, and I am looking forward to hearing from you to make this a better memorial. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial to submit what you would like included.

Looking much forward to adding the extensive additions/changes you have that are required when requesting a transfer.

I have already added the links you requested
