Friends, I am searching for birth date and parents of my GGG grandfather, Thompson E. KENYON, b. ca1804, if dates on his gravestone in EatonCo MI in 1849 are correct.
I know that sometime by 1834, he had married Mary Ann COWAN, in Scipio, CayugaCo NY, and that he had purchased Land Patents in 1837 and 1842 in EatonCo MI. I have found their information in EatonCo, including Mary Ann's and his deaths there, and the names of the Guardians named for their two children in their teens.
There seems to be no connection to the Rhode Island KENYONS yet, after 30 years' search. I have seen that Buddington? KENYON lived in Maine, but a search of the Maine Counties' Message Boards did not show anyone looking for that name :-(
I would be grateful for your advice. I am running out of time and options! Thanks, Patricia
