Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi visitor! I have been doing genealogy on and off for over 7 years. It started with my wifes side of the family and quickly grew from there. Lately I have been concentrating on my Flinn/Flynn heritage but still work on the Gioia side (maternal) as well. I am fortunate to still have relatives with memories to assist but admit the information is starting to linger.

On the Flinn side my GG Grandfather William and his older brother Ed fought in the civil war from the Cambria County PA Volunteers. The story has been passed down that Ed was wounded in battle and held prisoner in a war camp in Georgia, Andersonville where he later died. I have searched databases but have not been able to locate his headstone.

On the Gioia side information is even less available. The majority of elder Gioia's have passed, still leaving huge holes that need to be filled. Specifically, my grandfather Joeseph and his brother Anthony had a sister. It has been passed down that the sister, Helen, passed away at a young age sometime in the 1920's. So far I have not been able to track down ANY record of her passing. I'm sure one day the truth will be revealed.

Dewey Kenyon
My great great grandfather was Durham Kenyon who had a son named Dewey. There is a Dewey Kenyon buried in County Line cemetery born in 1850 and also a Dewey Kenyon born in 1850 who died in 1926 buried in Hartland Cemetery in Niagara County. I have a photo of that grave site.I'm confused as to why there are 2 Dewey Kenyons born the same year but buried in 2 different graves. Natalie Lockwood

RE: Durham Kenyon

Rob,
You are terrific! I am familiar with several of the names of the Kenyons you located, but I am not a direct descendant. There are some Kenyons more so than others, I am interested. Those include my identified ancestral family and secondly, those Kenyons I have been tracking in my research to help me locate my ggg paternal grandparents; hence my interest in Amasa and his wife. Thank you for offering, hold on to them and add on. I appreciate that you found those names and added them to findagrave.

Dear Rob,

Thank you for the photo of Durham Kenyon's tombstone and the transfer of Melissa Kenyon's new memorial page. Both are much appreciated.

RE: Campbell Burying Ground
Lower Mountain Road. I think there is a house to the right of the cemetery. We parked on the side of the road. The cemetery is not large but there are quite a few people buried there. It must have been forgotten for years - I took my grandfather there to see his great-grandfather (William Campbell Jr) and he had never been there even though Grandpa lived in Lewiston all his life.
Good luck and thanks for trying again.

Campbell Burying Ground
Try going a little farther east than the map indicates, the cemetery is on the north side of the road. When I was last there, the stones were all laying flat on the ground, there was a handmade sign - "Campbell" but perhaps that has fallen down as well. The town may have stopped mowing so maybe now it looks a bit like a field, what a shame if that is the case. If you still can't find it, I will check my old notes. I first saw this cemetery in the late 1970s, the stones were standing and that's when I recorded the information. Good luck, Ann Freeman
