Genealogy is very gratifying, fun and exciting when you make interesting family finds! Everyday begins a new adventure. Many families have stories about their ancestry. Some family lore turns out to be true, while others are just stories. Our family lore was about being related to Susan B. Anthony. In some ways this family lore influenced me as a young girl, in my views about women in our society. I would have truly been honored to have a relationship to Susan B. Anthony, but had no idea whether I would find out if there was any truth to the story in my lifetime.|
One of the reasons I was interested in genealogy was the hope to find out if Susan B. was an ancestor. As it turns out, Susan B. is a 4th cousin, 4 times removed. What a gratifying moment it was to actually find the proof to what had been an elusive family story.
Currently, I am searching for a Y-DNA match to my father, Charles Edward Kenyon at Family Tree DNA (FTDNA), where I am the co-administrator of the Kenyon Project.
Thank you to all of the volunteers who have taken the headstone photos for me. I realize that a lot of your time goes into getting these shots. I am very happy to make transfers to direct and collateral line ancestors, unless I have some personal attachment to the memorial page. By the way, if I have made duplications, please let me know.

|Nancy Kinyon Docherty||RE: Samuel and Dolly Kinyon/Kenyon|
We have corresponded in the past. As I recall you were looking for the parents of Lyman Kenyon.
You have seen my Ancestry.com site, Burroak and we corresponded about it. Yes, Samuel and Dolly Kinyon were my direct ancestors, my gr gr grandparents. I have been researching the family for over 20 years. It is not an easy one. I would be glad to share data and answer any questions that I can. Best to correspond via email.

|Marty McIntyre||RE: Joseph & Frances Cummings|
I will do that. I just didn't want to get in anyone's way.
|Marty McIntyre||Joseph & Frances Cummings|
I took picture of Joseph W. Cummings and Frances S. Cummings today and there is a large "CUMMINGS" headstone with many other Cummings family. How do you want me to send those?
|Ron Stewart||B. M. Kenyon|
FYI. Posted a picture of his tombstone today. A little hard to read but it is him.
|John Beckstein||Anna & Martha Kenyon|
Thanks for the transfer of my cousins!
|Mary Lou Pfenning||RE: Cemetery/ Church records|
I have the cemetery book. I have posted what is in that book. Supposedly, she has the church records.
|Mary Lou Pfenning||Nichols|
I checked the cemetery this morning and the building is locked. I do not have access to it.
|William Somers||RE: Frederick Gilbert Kenyon|
Thank you Marilyn. Since the time of our last correspondence I have uncovered an incredible amount of information about the Kenyons. I would be happy to share it with you.

It is pretty weathered. As Is Cora's, which I did not there there was a marker for her but it turns out there is but it was turned over so I turned it the right right way and set it back on its pedistal. someone had asked for a photo for her once earlier this year but I told whoever it was I thought there wasnt one, but, like i said, there is.
Byron's lot is next to my 3x great grandparents. I almost ignored the "father" footstone. I thought the lot was empty except for Betsy, but the online database mentions "father." Sorry it's of no help whatsoever, but it is what it is.. ASB
