Kenneth was born June 19, 1925 in Johnson Bayou, Cameron Parish, Louisiana. He was the son of Ray Burnell Pevoto (Feb 20, 1889 - August 6, 1965) and Betty Irene Green (14 Jul 1893 - 15 Mar 1970) both born in Orange, Texas.

On Feb 29, 1945, he married Marie Ruth Stephenson of Orange, Texas. Marie is the daughter of Herman Stephenson (Feb. 23, 1892-June, 10, 1958)and Ella Mae Edgerton (Oct. 31, 1895 - July 4, 1989), both of Orange, Texas. They had 4 children.

Kenneth's family lineage went as follows: Kenneth Ray Pevoto, son of Ray Burnell Pevoto, son of Olizeam Pevoto, son of Michel Anzero Pevoto II, son of Michel Pevoto I, son of Jacques Guillaume Pivauteau who was born in France. The 'Pivauteau' was spelled in many different ways after arriving in Louisiana.

At one point, they had a family meeting to come to an agreement on the spelling. Most of the family living in Texas went with the 'Peveto' spelling. Those still living in Johnson Bayou went with the 'Pevoto' spelling. They are all related.
