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, show that a Rodham Kenner was married on November 26, 1787, to Jemima Barker. If this was the same Rodham Kenner, it is apparent that Elizabeth was his second wife.
