The family of Simon Kenton thanks all of those that supported in the effort to finally secure Brigadier General Simon Kenton his, well deserved, military pension. Those interested in Kenton's family history are invited to visit the Kenton Kin Associations home page at www.thekentonkin.wordpress.com
Merry Christmas!
