I've been looking at 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

Interesting Bryan. The Kenyon name and all of it's derivatives (Kinnon, Kinyon, etc.) Are very clustered in the Lancashire, Cheshire and in Manchester. How far back in time, can you trace your Kenyon roots. The furthest I can go is 1805.

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.

My GGG grandmother was Lucy Kenyon, born in Vermont (1804), married Frink Crook and lived in Holland, Erie, New York. Her father in supposed to be Freeman Kenyon of Vermont or CT. Does anyone have any information on this family and their line?

according to our Y chromo through the NatGo test comes up as L47, however after reading through all of your add information over the last year I am not sure this test reads out the same way as the Family Tree DNA one does.

This is my husband's great great grandfather family(probably before 1900)-Samuel Kinyon Kenyon. The family settled in Cattaraugus County, New York around 1830's. They went by the name Kinyon for a while then started going by Kenyon.

Hi, my name is Phil Rapp...My earliest known female ancestor is Lucy or (Lucinda?) Kenyon born 1804 in Vermont. She married Frink or (Frank?) Crook and lived in Erie County New York. Lucy is the earliest known in our family line...we would appreciate any information concerning her and her line beyond Vermont. Here is our mtDNA info...Lucy Kenyon, b. 1804 Vermont Native H49a2 A16129G, T16187C, C16189T, T16223C, G16230A, T16278C, C16311T G73A, A93G, C146T, C152T, C195T, G207A, A247G, 522.1A, 522.2C, 309.1C, 315.1C, 573.1C, 573.2C....Thanks

Phil - I don't know whether this is any help to you or not. It looks like Frink Crook lived in Holland, Erie County, New York in 1830 with two young sons. He is also there in 1840 and in 1850 with wife Lucinda. In 1820 there were three Kenyon males living in Holland, Erie County, New York. Erie County was created out of Niagara County in 1821. (The 1820 census shows Holland in Niagara County, New York.) 1) Freeman P. Kenyon and his presumed wife over 45 years old. He is living next to Samuel Kenyon, who is younger. Arnold Kenyon is living 5 houses away, who is also younger. Freeman is also seen on 1830 census in Wales, New York and on 1840 census in Holland, New York, between 80-89 years of age. Wales was formed in 1818 from the Town of Willilink. 2) Samuel Kenyon and presumed wife both over 45. There are three males 16 thru 25 one female under 10 and one female 16 thru 25 (age of Lucy!). There are eight people in the household. 3) Arnold Kenyon, he is possibly son of Freeman Kenyon listed above. This is possibly the same Arnold Kenyon who fought in War 1812 in Vermont in JP Eldridge's Company and Judson's 1st Regiment. He had two sons under 10 years. One of them was Charles Kenyon. (Arnold is seen in 1830 and 1840 in Holland, New York) I don't know with any certainty who these Kenyons are, but I have hypothesized that they were all in Vermont, then came to New York State following the War of 1812. Freeman P. Kenyon may be 11311? (seen in the book American Kenyons). Samuel Kenyon may be 11321? (numbering from the book American Kenyons, and Arnold Kenyon 11311-? Consider these as only hypothetical possibilities, but they may provide you a lead. Good luck!
