Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been involved in researching my family history for about 6 years.

Currently, my focus is on Kenyon genealogy where I've been trying to solve a brick wall. I am happy to help any Kenyon researchers. My main focus is on Kenyons who lived in New York State between 1790 and 1850, who either settled in the state or migrated west to Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, or Iowa.

Best way to contact me for research questions is through my email listed below.

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

New York - especially Montgomery, Fulton, Jefferson counties (1790-1850)

Indiana - especially Lagrange, Steuben, and Elkhart counties (1835- 1850)

Wisconsin - especially Lafayette and Trempeleau counties (1840 - 1880)

Mississippi - especially Jasper and Jones counties (1820- 1880)

Currently, I am searching for a 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:)

Hi Marilyn,
My 2 Great Grandfather born Jan 3 1847 in New York, Marvin Ervin Kenyon, sorry I forgot the date.
I am still checking to verify everything, (and to make sure this is correct his parents would be The son of Fidela Hitchcock and Christoper Kenyon from New York. Maybe we are related???

I have a large family descents on this side of the family but the last name is not Kenyon. some (D. Kenyon)Kenyon's are buried in Genesee county on Miller road my uncle told me.
