My research has not been able to find ANYTHING on the Kenyon line, except they came from Rhode Island. The 1825 Clayton, Jefferson Co., New York census has Benoni Cole, born in Vermont. It only names him, with sex, age only for the others in the household. Not much to go on.
The 1850 N.Y.census lists Benoni(57) and Hannah(49) living with Simeon B. Cole (30), and a Sarah Ann (31), Moses (13) and Rhoda(11). Rhoda is my ancestor. Doesn't this sound like Simeon and Sarah Ann are the parents of Moses and Rhoda? Rhoda's parents died young (but I suspect it was her mother who died young) and simeon remaried and had a large family. I still have more avenues to explore, but could really use some help.
