[The old Benjamin Franklin Kenyon family bible
This family bible is believed to have belonged to Benjamin Franklin Kenyon (1873-1972), ninth child of Benjamin Kenyon (1831-1910) and Carolina (Joyce) Kenyon (1843-1933). It is now in the possession of Nancy (Kenyon) Sont, a great-great-grandaughter of Benjamin Sr.
The bible was given to her by the second wife of Benjamin Jr. The family information is on two plain paper pages pasted into the back cover of the bible.
Following are transcripts of these two pages of family records.]
