My ancestor that I am able to document is Smith Kenyon. I want to verify who his real
parents were. On ancestry.com
James Kenyon - Mumford Kenyon are his father and
grandfather respectively. However, Smith Kenyon's marriage announcement from Delhi
states he is from "Tioga Point". This is confusing because the James Kenyon
said to be his father lived in Kortright from 1810 forward. (Smith was born abt 1818).
As well, James Kenyon is said to be buried in Sanford, Broome, New York, USA on
with a link to find-a-grave there. Puzzling if he was living in Delaware
county for over 50 years............ As well, Mumford Kenyon is said to be Smith's
grandfather - and Mumford is documented in publications as having settled in the Delaware
county area in the early 1800s. There is no definite documentation that the James Kenyon
listed on ancestry.com
is Mumford's son or Smith's father.
Does anyone out there have actual documentation of any of these relationships? Hope
someone can help. I am afraid what is on ancestry.com
is all wrong.
