Son of John Kenyon and Mary Gardiner, brother of Remington, Mary, Dorcas, Hannah, Nathaniel and Elizabeth. Grandson of John and Elizabeth Remington Kenyon, and Nathaniel and Mary Greene Gardiner of South Kingstown, Rhode Island.
Kenyon ID# 1111

Having gone to the cemetery in June, 2012, other than the main 4 sided monument, there are 4 brass headstone plaques on the ground. We found one for Job, Welthan, Abba and Henry. If there are others for John and Elizabeth, they are buried under years of soil and leaves.
There are a number of headstones, broken, buried and illegible. The cemetery is unmarked, no real trail.

* Freelove Allen: Per Sons of the American Revolutionary (SAR) Freelove was an Allen, not a Reynolds. Daughter of William Allen and Freelove Tillinghast.
