Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family history since 2007. Find A Grave is awesome! I've watched it change since I first signed on. This was a simple idea, which has added so much for genealogists or anyone who wants to know more about his or her family history.

In a world that values competition, this is an example where cooperation among people achieves so much more than any single person could hope to accomplish in a lifetime.

It shows what can be accomplished when people come together for a common cause, and contribute in some way, big or small - create a memorial page, add information or links, take a photo and post it on a page, post a flower to honor, add information, or indicate relationship.

Put that all together and people are putting together a giant map of ancestors across the globe. It is cooperation on a grand scale.

I can now trace many of my lines back to the immigrant who first set foot in America or jump across the pond to ancestors who lived hundreds of years ago.

It allows me to drop breadcrumbs so that my cousins can follow them. In like kind, my cousins have dropped a line for me to follow.


I. Photo Requests - Thank you to all of the volunteers who have taken headstone photos for me.

II. Transfers - I am very happy to make transfers to direct and collateral line ancestors, unless they are my direct line ancestor.

III. Edit requests - I generally honor edit requests.

IV. Errors - If I have listed something incorrectly, please 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 to which you are referring to.

V. Unmarked Graves - Probably 10-20 percent of requests turnout to be unmarked graves. If you can locate where the grave should be, please mark it with some flowers and take a picture of it. I'd much rather have a picture of an unmarked grave, than no picture at all.

VI. No grave located. - If no grave is found and you have confirmed that there is no grave listed with the cemetery office, then report it to FindAGrave; otherwise, please ignore. Someone else might have better luck in locating the grave.

I have had about a half-dozen instances where "no grave" was reported to FindAGrave, as a problem in attempting to fulfill a photo request. FAG removes the photo request, believing there is no grave to be located. Then, months or even years later, someone locates the the grave, takes a photo of the headstone, and posts a photo of it.

Thank you,

Marilyn Kenyon, Psy.D.

RE: Kenyon Arms
Exactly, everyone uses the wrong one. Interesting little trivia. Lydia Withey who married Freeman Kenyon, was born in Preston, Ct. So was my Abby Coombs. Must have been a good area to find wives!

RE: John Kenyon
Looks better! But shouldn't it be Kenyons of America and not Kenyons of Kenyon? Note under crest.

RE: Noah Clark Levings - Green- Wood Cemetery
You are very welcome. I am still interested in your source for DOD for Noah Levings (24 May 1855)? I sent you a separate inquiry about it.

I am very interested in seeing information supported by something, IE: the obituaries to support the family links.

John Clark
I have just transferred him to you. He is a cousin of my husband and I had a lot of information on him when I took him over; so maybe you will be able to add even more. Good luck and I'll be checking back to see if I can collect more data!
