The ancestry of Israel Kenney has recently come into question. Edwin Wallace Bell, in his Isreal Kenney - His children and their families (1944) had suggested that he was born in Belfast, Ireland. More recent research strongly suggests he was born in Massachusetts. In 1998, Ruth M. Frickle, concludes that Israel is the son of Rebecca Perkins and Israel Kenney Sr. who were not married. This Israel Kenney Sr. married a cousin, Eunice White, five days after the birth of his illegitimate son and nine months later Eunice gave birth to a son, also named Israel. Both boys were baptised together on May 7, 1748 at the Evangelical Congregarional Church in Middleton Massachusetts.

Eight years later, in 2006, Jeff Green writes the article "The Four Israels of Massachusetts [Israel Kenney]" with strong evidince to suggest Israel is the son of Daniel, Jr. and Elizabeth (Stockwell) Kenney. Daniel Jr. would be a brother to Israel Sr. above. Their parents were Daniel, Sr. and Mary (Richards) Kenney.
