One of the popular features
found in The Kentucky Explorer each month is genealogy,
often published in the form of letters, queries, photographs,
and stories. Several serial features, such as Kentucky Genealogy
Help Line, Genealogy From The Long Ago, and Strictly Kentucky
Genealogy, are dedicated solely to this purpose and continue
from month to month.
Here are some genealogy
items from our February 2013 issue.

Rodham Kenner served as a gunner in the Virginia State Navy of
the Revolution. After the war, he removed to Logan County, Kentucky,
where he died in 1842. A memorandum in the Revolutionary records
of the Virginia State Library states that his heirs were Phoebe
Dillon, Cynthia Lewis, Sally Chew, Elizabeth Chew, and Nancy
Chew, who were also heirs of Ambrose Lewis, who had Revolutionary
service. According to this record, Rodham Kenner's wife's name
was Elizabeth. However, the records of Fauquier County, Virginia,

Jemima Barker. If this was the same Rodham Kenner, it is apparent
that Elizabeth was his second wife.
