For those Kenyons with brick walls, here is your starting point, now locate 15 allied families and record the history. Hang on to your rocking chair and keep a few extra pens to record, may take you a few years.

Grandson of Martha Kenyon, sister of Mina Eugenia Kenyon. Finding ancestors may be solved by asking grandmother, which one? Well, we have several, here is an example. I am a Stone maiden, married 58 years, a gentleman of Middle Europe ancestry. My Mother a Spencer, R.I. ancestry, Father a Stone, New Haven Colony ancestry. 400 years of very hard study to find my family. My husband has labored 15 years, finding my ancestors; he warns, the first ten years were so full of holes, wants to make you cry. Book after book was read, the riddles were not solved until he asked my grandmother who had passed in 1943. He went to work on her profile, documented everything he could find. He knew two truths, that she was born 1865, and that she was a Kenyon. A list of 15 allied families was compiled, and from that list, a biological map of ancestors broke down the walls. You see, our grandson (y-dna) is male direct to Brian Pendleton 1599-1681, Comm. of Mass Bay Colony; his 7th GGF is John Kenyon 1655-1732. His mother is MBA, George Wash. Univ., VA. From 1599, my husband filled in the gaps. Those gaps will blow one away, for Kenyons married Pendletons, Pendletons mar. Minors, Minors mar. Palmers and Walter Palmer 1589-1661 is my grandson's 11th GGF. You will be amazed how these early families connect, problem is, takes 15 years to do it and lots of money.

I've been looking at Ancestry.com and found two records of a Roger Kenion, dated 1665-1666 and 1667. He was a passenger on a ship sailing to Virginia. I think it possible this immigrant was the grandfather of Roger Kenyon of Perquimans. That is the possibility I'm currently researching. How are all of you doing at reaching back? Paul

Since many are posting photos, I thought I would share this photo of my Great Grandmother, Elizabeth (Bessie) Morton Kenyon, taken about the time she married Louis Francis Denaro, Sr in 1897, Charleston, SC. Her father was William Allen Kenyon, B 29 Jan 1835 Pheonixville, PA, D 26 June 1896 Charleston, SC. This is one of several photos I have of her from my grandmother's childhood scrapbook.
