Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been involved in researching my family history for nearly seven years, focused primarily on Kenyon genealogy where I've been trying to solve a brick wall.

My main focus is on Kenyons who settled in New York State following the American Revolution through 1850.

Primary areas of genealogical research:

Kenyon genealogy
Phelps genealogy
Clark genealogy
Parkhurst genealogy
Cummings genealogy
Windham genealogy

New York - Albany, Washington, Montgomery, Fulton, and Jefferson counties (1790-1850)

Indiana - Lagrange and Steuben counties (1835- 1850)

Wisconsin - Lafayette and Trempeleau counties (1840 - 1880)

Mississippi - Jasper and Jones counties (1820- 1880)

I have found a very close Y-DNA match to my father, Charles Edward Kenyon at Family Tree DNA (FTDNA), where I am the co-administrator of the Kenyon Project.

Y-DNA testing has matched my father to the 173- Kenyon line. I am specifically targeting Barnabas Kenyon, born 1786, died 1844, Lima, Lagrange, Indiana as my suspect father to my great great grandfather, Lyman Kenyon, born about 1814, New York State.

Keeping my fingers crossed that I will find the documentation to link Barnabas Kenyon to my great great grandfather.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who have taken the headstone photos for me. Time goes into traveling to sites, researching information, searching cemeteries (sometime to no avail), taking the photos and posting them. Your work and dedication to helping people is very much appreciated.

Additionally, I should note that I download many of the photos onto, if it is a match to the person of interest. I give credit to the person who took the photo.

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.

By the way, if I have made duplications, please let me know. I hate that when it happens:)

Marilyn Kenyon, PsyD.

RE: Bert Waite
You are so very welcome for Bert L. Waite's photos. I created a memorial for the woman interred next to him (his wife perhaps?), Christina M. Waite, Memorial # 132587224. Would you like me to transfer her to you? Kind regards, Bridey Light

RE: B. B. and Lydia Utter
Yes, that is a concrete tree, on the right is an anchor with rope, it is in much better shape than other tree monuments. There are two other tree type monuments in this small cemetery! There are other members of the Utter family resting there, let me know if additional pics are needed. take care, Marty

RE: Sarah Kenyon Potter
I have what I could get of the rest of the family. The individual stones were knocked over and in the ground.

Kenyons - Mount Adnah Cemetery, Fulton, Oswego NY
I was looking for (and failed to find) Robert Kenyon (d. 1836) and his wife in Mount Adnah, but I did find three old markers for Kenyon's that weren't previously listed. I created memorials for them and posted my photos to them. I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to transfer them to you in hopes that you can get them connected up wherever they go. Thanks!

Hi. It was no trouble at all! I believe they are there just no headstones. Sorry.

RE: Ripperton Memorial
You are welcome. I happened to run across an Anna E Ripperton, b1876 who was the daughter of John Ripperton and Mary Cook. She married a Lewis J. Smalley on 19-Oct-1895. Also an Ida Ripperton, b1868 who married a Sam Moist. I didn't know if you knew about them too.

Have a great memorial weekend!! Barb
