Generation No. 3



4. John Ransom Runyon2, born June 24, 1887 in McVeigh, Pike County, Kentucky2; died November 22, 1961 in Ironton, Ohio. He was the son of 8. Joseph Adron Runyon and 9. Columbia Hatfield. He married 5. Monnie Hall January 10, 1917 in Greenup County, Kentucky3,4.

5. Monnie Hall5, born July 12, 1900 in Magoffin County, Kentucky; died March 30, 1927 in Boyd County, Kentucky. She was the daughter of 10. Joseph Silas Hall and 11. Barbara Printha Whitt.



Notes for John Ransom Runyon:

John was born John Ransom Runyan, however, he adopted the spelling of RUNYON, at an unknown point in time. As a result, public records can be found relating to John under both spellings of his last name. The name was spelled RUNYAN on the marriage records of wifes Monnie Hall, Ida Runyon, and Ella Belle Collins, but with RUNYON on the marrage record of Ethel Queen.

The 1920 Census for Boyd County, Kentucky lists John as employed as a sanitary Dept Engineer. In later years he worked as an auto mechanic as listed on several of his marriage records. His son Ira W. Runyan said that his father had several jobs as an auto mechanic. He is listed as a jewler on his 1930 marriage record to Ethel Queen.

John was a watchmaker for most of his life, who owned and operated a watch repair business in Russell, Kentucky and Ironton, Ohio. His son Julius Clifton Runyon took over the family business after the death of John.

John Ransom Runyon's hobby was making black powder weapons and had a small trailer in his back yard set up as a machine shop for producing his guns.

Robert & Amos Runyon listed in their book Runyon Genealogy, 1955 on page 48 three (3) wifes of John Ransom Runyan (1st- Pearlie Church 0n September 21,1910, 2nd- Monnie Hall and 3rd- Ella Belle Collins), however, his son Ira W. Runyan has stated that his father was married Seven (7) times. Ira W. Runyan speculated that his uncle Amos (John's brother) may have listed only three marriages because he was embarrassed with the number of wifes John had.

It is noted that Amos Runyon was elected a member of the House of Representatives of the Kentucky legislature in 1943 and remained in that position for ten years (the period he was writing his book), which could explain his not wanting to print any thing which could be viewed by foes in a negative manner. On the other hand, he may not have known the identity of the other wifes of John. It is further noted that written on the marriage records filed in Boyd County, Kentucky for Ethel Queen and Ella Collins, is the phrase "PLEASE DO NOT PUBLISH". John Ransom may have wished to keep knowledge of his marrages from his former wifes.

Ira W. Runyan stated that he saw one wife of John only one time, she was a "redhead" , the marriage not lasting long, ending with her going to Navada for a divorce. Two other wifes were Ethel Queen (AKA Ethel Rice) and Ida Runyon daughter of Thomas P. Martin Runyon known as "Uncle Mart". He could not remember the name of the seventh wife, however his father lived with a Leolia Mullions for a while and he may have married her.

According to Ira W. Runyan, after Ida Runyon divorced John Ransom Runyan she married George Slone.

Iona Virginia (Runyon) Raley confirmed Ida's marriage to John Ransom by means of E-mail by stating

" I do not know when my Aunt Ida (Runyon) married George Slone but it must have been by the 1950's. Since Aunt Ida lived in Kentucky and I lived in California we never met although we did correspond. I do remember my father telling me that Aunt Ida married 3 times. I don't know the name of her first husband but the second one was Ransom Runyon and the third was George Slone."

Cause of Death: Massive heart attack



Notes for Monnie Hall:

According to family stories, Monnie Hall's mother was a "full blooded" Cherokee, however, Fred Hoskins (hoskins@wsu.edu) the son of Monnie's sister Niota has been gathering information on his family for 35 years. He has documented the family history of Barbara Printha Whitt (Monnie's mother) for many generations on both sides, and there is no evidence of Indian blood from either side. A search of the Dawes Roll at National Archives Information Locator (NAIL) at www.nars.gov "Southwest Regional" also seems to disprove the "Cherokee Story"

Mommie died at a young age of 26 years and was buried in the Ransom Hatfield Cemetery near Catlettsburg, Kentucky.

Ashland Oil in later years purchased the land upon which the Ransom Hatfield Cemetery and the Asa H. Runyon burial ground were located. Ashland Oil moved the graves in these two sites to Williams Cemetery (now known as Golden Oaks Memorial Gardens) located at the city line between Catlettsburg and Ashland, Kentucky, which is across the Ohio River from South Point, Ohio. The Stone marking her grave was hand carved by her husband John Ransom Runyon.

Julius Runyon was known by family and friends as "JC" or "Cliff"

He was a World War II veteran, and served in the US Marines. According to his son Bob, Julius lied about his age when he enlisted in the service, and as a result he had problems in establishing his age with the Social Security Board when it was time for him to retire.

After the war he worked as a watchmaker with his father John Ransom Runyon and later took over the buisness after the death of his father.

Jane was born February 25, 1810, on John's Creek, which is now in Pike County, and died May 30, 1883. After the death of her husband she lived the remainder of her life at the homestead on Pond Creek.

Adron was granted 1,192 acres of valuable coal and tember land, and he purchased other large tracks of land on Pond Creek. He was justice of the peace in Pike County from 1847 to 1857.

He was a member of the Primitive Baptist Church and served as the first secretary until July 2, 1859. He was appointed deacon January 13, 1844."

This church later became known as Pond Creek Regular Baptist Church.

(Source: "Minutes of the Pond Creek Regular Baptist Church, a Digest" by Clyde Runyon - 1985)

Generation No. 7



64. John Runyon, born Abt. 1761 in Maryland; died Aft. 1840 in Pike County, Kentucky. He was the son of 128. Isaac Runyon and 129. Charity (Geertie) Hageman. He married 65. Elizabeth (Betsy) Runner.

65. Elizabeth (Betsy) Runner She was the daughter of 130. Adam Runner.



Notes for John Runyon:

Robert and Amos Runyan in RUNYON GENEALOGY 1955 listed that the name of John's wife was unknown but there was a tradition that her name was Betsy Raemer (spelling uncertain). Many published family trees list that name for John's wife.

The 1962 Supplement to RUNYON GENEALOGY by Robert Runyon states "John Runyan must have married in Montgomery County, Virginia, Where he was living, in or about 1786. The descendants of John Runyon say that his wife's name was Elizabeth." He further stated that the index for the records of Montgomery County, Virginia - Court Records 1776 - 1799 list the name of Elizabeth Runyon (spelled Runion) , but the actual documents have not been found. This suggests that John's Wife was named Elizabeth. According to Robert Runyon, census records indicate that Elizabeth was a few years older than John.

The book EARLY ADVENTURES OF THE WESTERN WATERS, VOL II, by Mary Kegley page 397 discusses Adam Runner living in Draper's Valley as early as 1786, on 230 acres of land on Mack's Run. (Montgomery County Deed Book A, P 402) The children of Adam Runner were mentioned in a lawsuit in Wythe County Superior Court Chancery Pleas which included "Elizabeth who Married John Runyan". (Lawsuit Smith v. Fugate. Wythe County Superior Court Chancery Pleas, Bk 5, beginning P. 669, Montgomery county Marriages.).

John was born in Maryland circa 1761 and died after 1840 at his son Adron's home in Pike County, Kentucky. Montgomery County Tax rolls list John and his father Isaac from 1782 - 1794, thereafter they moved to Wythe County for the years 1796 and 1797. John returned to Montgomery county by 1799. From 1800 - 1809 John was listed on tax rolls for Bluestone Creek, Virginia which became part of Tazewell County. John moved to Pond Creek, Floyd County, Kentucky circa 1820.

Children of John Runyon and Elizabeth Runner are:

i. Anne Runyon, born 1790 in Tazwwell, VA; died 1844 in Benton County, MO; married Charles Lusk June 20, 1811 in Tazewell County, Virginia.

ii. Nancy Runyon, married John Stafford May 10, 1803 in Tazewell County, Virginia; died 1832.

iii. Henry Runyon, born 1788 in Montgomery County, Virginia; died September 11, 1859 in Prestonsburg, Floyd County, Kentucky; married Hannah Collins February 01, 1810 in Taswell County, Virginia; died March 05, 1857.

iv. Charity Runyon, born Abt. 1792; died August 25, 1838.



Notes for Charity Runyon:

Charity was an invalid, probably from birth. She is buried in the Pond Creek Baptist Church Cemetery.

As recorded in Pike County, Kentucky, Circuit Court Order Book Number 1, page 2, July Term, July 1822, an order was entered, which stated that Charity Runyon, daughter of John was 30 years of age and appointed John Runyon, her father, as a committee to care for Charity. Pike County Circuit Book "A", page 81, May Term of Court, 1835 refers to Charity Runyon as being in care of Thomas Owens, and on page 134 of the same book she is placed in the household of her brother, Adron. She remained with Adron until her death.

128. Isaac Runyon, born 1738 in Middlesex County, New Jersey; died 1820. He was the son of 256. Joseph Runyan and 257. Elizabeth ?. He married 129. Charity (Geertie) Hageman 1754.

129. Charity (Geertie) Hageman She was the daughter of 258. Adrian Hageman and 259. Mary Hageman.



Notes for Isaac Runyon:

As of the year of 1998, to my knowledge documented proof of the name of Isaac Runyon's Father & Mother does not exist.

According to Joe Branson, Provo, Utah who is a descendant of Isaac Runyan, "There has been no known link to Isaac's parents as his cabin burned and all the family records with it.". The source of his information is unknown. Amali (Runyon) Perkins has provided me with a copy of Isaac's handwritten Petition to be placed on the pension list, filed in the County of Tazewell, Virginia dated December 8th, 1819, and Isaac said ".... The precise period of service rendered in Carolina your petitioner cannot now recollect having been so unfortunate as to have all his papers and documents to substantiate the facts herein stated, consumed by fire. ...."

From "Supplement To Runyon Genealogy" by Robert Runyon, 1962, Page 195 - "Col. Calvin I. Kephart, an authority on the genealogy of the Runyon-Runyan families of New Jersey, in a letter to Amos Runyon of Belfry, Kentucky stated that Isaac Runyon who settled in Montgomery County, Virginia about 1780 was a son of Joseph who was born circa 1705. Joseph was a son of Thomas and Martha (Dunn) Runyon. No Substantiating evidence has been found." (E-mail I received indicates that "NJ Arch. XXIII pg 217" may be the source for documentation of Kephart's clams.).

About half of the published Runyon-Runyan trees I have seen list this Joseph Runyan as the father of Isaac.

A second theory states that Isaac's parents were John and Elizabeth (Freeman) Runyon. This John Runyon b. November 18, 1695, Piscataway,Nj was the son of John Runyan and Ann Elizabeth Dunn. The source for this theory appears to be Geri Halstead in "Under The Runyon Tree" stating "to my knowledge, no record of their (John Runyon& Elizabeth Freeman) children has been found" but she said it was "problematical and possible" that the children were 1) Freeman Runyon 2) Nathaniel Runyon 3) Jacob Runyon b. circa 1714 4) John Runyon b. circa 1723 5) William Runyon 6) Isaac Runyon 7) Hugh Runyon.

Without documentation, both theorys are nothing but speculation, and It may be that both are in fact in error. I have seen nothing which would give weight to one theory over the other. I will therefor carry Joseph Runyon, son of Thomas and Martha (Dunn) Runyon as Isaac's line until documented proof of another relationship can be produced.

From "Archives of The Pioneers of Tazewell County, Virginia" by Netti Schreiner-Yantis, Page 211, appeared this abstract of Isaac's petition for a pention. (It should be noted that this is not a "word for word reproduction" of the origional hand written document.)

"Isaac Runion - New Jersey, Virginia

Petition made 08 Dec 1819. Bill drawn 20 Dec 1819.

Isaac served in the militia on several occasions

during the Revolution and has never received but

one dollar for his services. He first enlisted in

New Jersey where he served two months. Next he

served one month on the frontiers of Virginia

under Captain Edwards. Then he served a tour to

North Carolina in Colonel William Campbell's

Regiment of Virginia Militia and lastly a tour in

Captain Edwards Company in Colonel Walter

Crockett's Regiment. Isaac's age now exceeds four

score years and he has lost entire use of his

eyesight. Addron Runion made oath that he knew

Isaac served the tours mentioned. John Preston of

Wythe County states that he first knew Isaac

Runion in the year 1780. He then resided in

Montgomery County on or near Pine Run. Mr.

Preston saw Isaac in North Carolina a short time

before the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, there

were two men of that name, father and son, he

thinks. About 14 or 15 years ago, Isaac Runion

moved from Wythe to Tazewell County. John B.

George deposes that he is well acquainted with

Isaac Runion, that he is 81 years old and he

understands he has been blind for 9 years. He

also has a son who is a cripple, the son is about

50 years old. He also has an aged wife.



Children of Isaac Runyon and Charity Hageman are:

i. Adam Runyon, born May 04, 1755 in Maryland; married Elizabeth Davis; born Abt. 1770; died Aft. 1870.



Notes for Adam Runyon:

Nettie Weaver (nweaver@ijntb.net) has a copy of Adrian Hageman's last Will and Testament dated December 2, 1773 which provides for his two grandsons John Runnion and Adrean Runnion, but does not name Adam Runyon. Based upon that Will and the fact that Adam did not serve in the same military unit during the Revolutionary war as Isaac & John Runyon, she concludes that Adam is not a son of Isaac Runyon. Further, Nettie Weaver speculates that Adam may be a brother of Isaac sence there is only 17 years between their births.

On page 87 of "RUNYON GENEALOGY" by Robert and Amos Runyon 1955 they said "The relationship of John and Adam has never been determined, but a family connection is apparent." They noted that "While Adam was living in Stokes County, John Runyon was living in Wilkes County, North Carolina. Apparently John moved soon after 1790 to Tazewell County, where he is listed in the personal tax rolls. About the time that Adam emigrated to Pigeon Creek, John and his family came to Pond Creek, which is now in Pike County, Kentucky. Pond Creek is not far from Pigeon Creek."

By 1962 Robert Runyon had established in "SUPPLEMENT TO RUNYON GENEALOGY" that John and Adam were brothers, and that Adam Runyon was listed on the tax rolls of Tazewell County, Virginia for the years 1806 and 1811. On page 200, Robert reported that Adam Runyon's pension application No. R 9082, Scioto County, Ohio dated August 5, 1836 contained the following information...

"Adam Runyon was born May 4, 1755 in Maryland. He came with his parents to Rockbridge County, Virginia perhaps about 1778 or 1779. From there they soon removed to Botetourt County, Virginia. He enlisted in the Virginia Militia and made a tour to North Carolina. His residence was in Botetourt County, Virginia until about 1804 when he removed to Tazewell County. He lived about five or more years in Tazewell County and then he removed to Pigeon Creek, now in Mingo County, West Virginia. He lived on the waters of Pigeon Creek until April 15th or 16th 1835, then went to Scioto County, Ohio to reside."

Adam Runyon made application for a pension in Scioto County, Ohio in 1836. His descendants say that he later returned to Pigeon Creek, where he died and is buried.

From "Archives of The Pioneers of Tazewell County, Virginia" by Netti Schreiner-Yantis, Page 211



"Adam Runyon - Virginia

Applied for pension 05 August 1836 while a

resident of Scioto County, Ohio. Age 81 years.

Enlisted September 1777 in Botetourt County,

Virginia under, he thinks, Lt. James Johnson.

Marched to Hillsborough, North Carolina, Ranson's

Mill, was in the Battle of Guilford Courthouse,

Battle of King's Mountain, and Yorktown. Born in

Maryland and when very young was brought to

Rockbridge County, Virginia by his parents where

he lived until he enlisted. After service, he

lived in Botetourt County for 15 years, then

Tazewell County for about 4 years, then Cabell

County until 16 April 1835/6 when he moved to

Scioto County. He had applied for a pension about

9 years ago at which time Polly Demsey had made

an affidavit in which she said she saw him enlist

and march off. The affidavit was made in Logan

County."

Notes for Richard Runyon:

Richard owned a large tract of land bordering the west side of New River in a portion of Montgomery County which became Pulaski County, Virginia in 1839. On May 10, 1837, Richard and wife Hannah, divided their land between two sons, giving the upper half to William and the lower half to Stephen. On May 1, 1837 Richard with his family were listed as residents of a part of Giles County that became Mercer County during the same year. He was one of the first grand jurors in the newly organized county. Richard is listed on the personal tax rolls of Giles County for 1853 to 1857. Also he was listed on the tax rolls for real estate in Giles County 1844 to the time of his death, and afterwards as his estate. His residence was given as being in Pulaski County. He had purchased during 1844 a tract of land located on Desmel Creek, fifteen miles southwest of Pearisburg containing 328 acres. By the year of 1846, his land holdings there were reduced to 110 acres.

Richard and Hannah (Carden) Runyon's childern were all married in Montgomery County, Virginia, except William, who was married in Wythe County.

Richard died at the residence of his son William in Pulaski County, Virginia. His death is registered on page nine in the Register of deaths at the County Clerk's office in Pulaski County. (Source: "Supplement To Runyon Genealogy" by Robert Runyon 1962.)

Several current genealogies have combined the data on this Benjamin with the data on Benjamin Runyon, son of John Vincent Runyon, resulting in a Benjamin who had two wifes, who died twice, and left two estates, which of course can't be. (See NOTES on Benjamin Runyon, son of John Runyon)

Benjamin Runyon son of John Vincent Runyon was the Benjamin who married Mary ?, and was born on June 16,1704 in Piscataway, Middlesex County, NJ., and died about 1776/7 in Somerset County, New Jersey.

The Benjamin Runyon (Runyan) who married Anna Higgins had to be born after 1704 because his will dated January 29, 1776 and proved February 12, 1776 left to his "...Wife Anna Runyan, all the goods she brought to me, and the profits of my plantation, to bring up those of my childern that are under age...".

To have more than one child under age in 1776, we would have to estimate that this Benjamin was born between 1725 and 1738. That DOB range would also seem to indicate this Benjamin could not be the son of Thomas Runyan and Martha Dunn.

From "Calendar of New Jersey Wills", Vol. V, 1771-1780, edited by A. Van

Doren Honeyman:

1776, Jan 29. Runyan, Benjamin, of Amwell, Hunterdon Co.; will of. Eldest

son, John, a colt. Wife, Anna Runyan, all the goods she brought to me, and

the profits of my plantation, to bring up those of my children that are under

age, and, after her death, the land to be divided between my 3 sons, John,

Joseph, and Reuben. Daughters, Sarah, Elizabeth, Mary, Anna and Piety, 5

pounds each. Executors - wife Anna, and my brother-in-law, Azariah Higgins.

Witnesses - John Manners, Joseph Stout, Samuel Corwine. Proved Feb. 12,

1776.

Inventory made by John Manners and Samuel Corwine, 7 Feb 1776

Account by Azariah Higgins, surviving Executor, 10 Mar 1781.

(Lib. 17, p. 375; Lib 23, p. 218)

The will leaves to his eldest son, John, a colt, the rest of the estate went to Anna to take care of the underage childern. If we assume John was 20 years of age, and that Benjamin was 20 when he married Anna, Benjamin's DOB would be about 1736. If so, he could not be a son of Thomas Runyan and Martha Dunn. Many researchers listing a Benjamin as son of Thomas Runyan list his death at 1749, and if correct that can't be the Benjamin who married Anna Higgins.

Until further documentation is obtained, Runyon/Runyan researchers should consider that the father of this Benjamin Runyan who married Anna Higgins is UNKNOWN.



258. Adrian Hageman He married 259. Mary Hageman.

259. Mary Hageman



Notes for Adrian Hageman:

Nettie Weaver (nweaver@softdisk.com) has a copy of what she beleaves to be Adrian Hageman's last Will and Testament dated December 2, 1773 which provides for his two grandsons John Runnion and Adrean Runnion, but does not name Adam Runyon. Baised upon that Will and the fact that Adam did not serve in the same military unit during the Revolutionary war as Isaac & John Runyon, she concludes that Adam is not a son of Isaac Runyon. Further, Nettie Weaver speculates that Adam may be a brother of Isaac sence there is only 17 years between their births.

The text of Nettie Weaver's Last Will and Testament for Adrian Hegeman is as follows:

"In the name of God, Amen, I Adriaen Hagerman farmer being weak in body and

memory (blessed by God) do this day it being the 2nd day of December in the

expenses be first paid out of my estate.

Then I will all the remainder of my estate bowth real and personal to my wife

my estate to my Daughter Geertit her heirs and assigns escepting that after my

wife desease I will to my grandson John Runnion my Gun and Sweord and to my

Grandson Adrean Runnion I will my silver knee Buckels and _____ Buckels.

And Whereas my son in Law, Hath now a Watch which Is minem, if he doth not give

it to my grandson Adriaen he is have out of my Estate the sum of Seven pounds

common money paid him at my wife demise. ______Wit info whereof I the said

Notes for Vincent Runyan:

Vincent spent his entire life on a portion of land which had belonged to Thomas ans Martha Dunn Runyan. Shortley after his father's death Vincent bought from his mother the eastern portion of the land where he was already living. The western portion of Thomas' 200 acres of land passed to the brother of Vincent, Ephraim Runyan.



In his will dated October 27, 1770, Vincent left his land to his wife Mercy for her lifetime use, then to go to grandson Vincent (III) upon her death (His son Vincent (II) had already died.). He signed the will with the signature "Vinson", as a result you see that name in some Runyon genealogies.

Vincent was elected as a town constable of Hopewell from 1743 - 1748, and during the years of 1756 - 1759 he was elected to the post of overseer of the poor.

The western portion of Thomas' 200 acres of land passed to Ephraim Runyan after his fathers death.

Ephraim Runyan died in hopewell Twp., NJ as a result of an accident. There may have been a question about his death, because a coroners' inquest was held June 14, 1772 relating to his death:

From "More Records of Old Hunterdon County, Vol. 1", compiled by Phyllis B.

D'Autrechy, 1998: (Further abstracted by me (Judy: (Jetoo@aol.com)))

Coroners' Inquest: Inquisition taken at the house of Ephraim Runyan in

Hopewell Twp., 14 Jun 1772 to view the body of said Ephraim Runyon. Jury

determined that he had been riding in a wagon on the road between Moses

Baldwin's and Mary Kempbel's and fell. The two near side wheels of the wagon

ran over him. He died about an hour after. (His name is spelled with an "a"

and with an "o" in the transcription.)



After the death of Ephraim, his widow, Sarah remarried a widower named Jacob Stout. After Jacob's death she sold Ephraim's homestead farm to her daughter Martha's husband, William Dollas(Dawlis). In May 1786 William sold the property to Jacob Titus, who's family held the subject land until the year of 1975.



viii. Benjamin Runyan, born Abt. 1717.



Notes for Benjamin Runyan:

CAUTION - It has not been proved that Thomas Runyan and Martha Dunn had a son named Benjamin, however Geri Halstead in "Under the Runyon Tree" listed as additional childern: Benjamin, Anna and Elizabeth. Several published genealogies also list Benjamin as their son.



ix. John Runyan81, born 1739 in Somerset (Amwell), NJ; died July 27, 1813; married (1) Rachel Hyde 1769; born January 11, 1741 in Hopewell, NJ; died June 1814; married (2) Rebecca Landis June 19, 1793 82.



Notes for John Runyan:

CAUTION - Runyon/Runyan researchers should use caution in that much confusion exists as to the identity of the father of this John Runyan. The information on this Runyan line comes from sources which should be viewed by researchers with caution and as sometimes questionable. This line is based upon information from Page 159 of "Pioneers of Old Hopewell, with Sketches of her Revolutionary Heroes" By Ralph Ege, Runyon Family Group Sheets by Doris L. (Coriell) Horvath, and information which over the years appeared in Geri Halstead's "Under The Runyon Tree".

Ralph Ege in Pioneers of Old Hopewell page 159 says that this John Runyan was the son of Thomas Runyan and Martha Dunn. Thomas was born 1675 and John 1739, thus at John's birth Thomas would have been 64 years of age and his wife Martha would have been 58 years old - an unlikely age to have a child. The youngest documented son of Thomas & Martha was Ephrarm born 1710, 29 years before the birth of this John Runyan. John Runyan could however be the grandson of Thomas & Martha.

Page 159 of "Pioneers of Old Hopewell" by Ralph Ege says the following:

"John Runyan was the son of Thomas Runyan, who, in 1708, purchased of Daniel

Coxe of Burlington, for thirty pounds, the tract now owned by Mr. Enoch A.

Titus, adjoining the E. S. Wells farm on the south.

At that time William Hixson owned the Wells farm, and Captain Hunt the lands

on the west.. A copy of the last will of Thomas Runyan, dated October 30,

1738, is on file in the office of the Secretary of State, at Trenton. He

left the farm to his wife Martha, and appointed his two eldest sons, Vincent

and Thomas*, executors. The witnesses to the will were his neighbors, Josiah

and Elizabeth Furman and Roger Wolverton."

John Runyan married, first, about 1769, Rachel, daughter of James Hyde of Hopewell,

who owned the farm east of the borough now known as the Johnson farm, when the

road from the province line at Stoutsburg to marshall's Corner was surveyed on

March 18,1723. (See article 2.) John Runyan and Rachel Hyde had nine children, viz:

Anna Elizabeth, who died in infancy, Sarah, Vincent, Orminer, Rachel, John Hyde,

Joseph, Francis and Anna Elizabeth. John Runyan married, second, Rebecca

Landis, and had five children, viz: Henry, Isaac, Catherine, David and Amos."

There's a notation *: "The wife of Adam Conrad of Kingwood, and mother of

Judge Conrad, deceased of Pennington, was Sarah, daughter of Thomas Runyan,

Jr., and she was left a legacy by the will of her father, dated January 23,

1770."

Several genealogies list a Benjamin Runyan born about 1717 and died 1749 as a son of Thomas Runyan and Martha Dunn. If that is correct, this John Runyan could be his son making him the grandson of Thomas Runyan.

Until further documentation is obtained, Runyon/Runyan researchers should consider that the father of this John Runyan is UNKNOWN.

Generation No. 11



1024. Vincent Rongnion, born 1645 in Poitou, France84; died November 1713 in Piscataway, New Jersey84. He married 1025. Ann Martha Boutcher July 17, 1668 in New Jersey85.

1025. Ann Martha Boutcher86, born Abt. 1650 86; died Abt. 1723 87. She was the daughter of 2050. John Boutcher.



Notes for Vincent Rongnion:

Vincent Rongnion was born in 1645 in or near the city of Poitiers, in the Province of Ancienne Poitou, France.



The identity of Vincent Rongnion's father has never been documented. A Henry Rongnion of Portiers, France has been suggested as the possiable father of Vincent, however, no proof has been found that our Vincent Rongnion was a direct descendant of Henry Rongnion. As such, the Coat-Of-Arms which has been used by some of the Runyon/Runyan families may or may not be correctly used. The Coat-Of-Arms belonging to Henry Rongnion (Other spellings: Roygnon,Regnon) is a blue (Azure) shield, with 3 bees of gold, with the motto Mel Regi. If Vincent is not a direct descendent of Henry, then the use of the Coat-Of-Arms is impropper.

Vincent Rongnion was a French Huguenot (French Protestants who in the seventeenth century were engaged in religious wars with the dominant Catholics, and were the followers of John Calvin.). The Huguenots were always a minority in France, but powerful with their strength centered in the southwestern part of the country. After Charles II of England was restored to the throne, he rewarded Lord Phillip Carteret, who had remained loyal to the Stuarts, and in his position as commander of the forces on the Isle of Jersey (Island off the coast of France where Huguenots went to escape the religious strife in their native land.), had offered refuge to the Prince. Charles' brother, the Duke of York, gave what is now New Jersey to Carteret and a fellow loyalist, Lord Berkeley.

Phillip Carteret as the new Govenor of New Jersey went to America in 1665 and several Huguenots from the Isle of Jersey accompanied him. That same year, he went back to Europe and returned in 1666, bringing more immigrants with him. It is beleived that Vincent Rngnion came to America from the Isle Of Jersey, with Phillip Carteret on a ship named the "Phillip", however his name has not as of this date been documented from records relating to the ship "Phillip". The "Phillip" was commissioned to support Phillip Carteret, the newly appointed governor of East Jersey, and was reportedly named after him. It brought Carteret and a number of French craftsmen to Elizabethtown, East Jersey, on or about 28 July 1665.

Vincent Rongnion first arrived at Elizabethtown, New Jersey between 1665 and 1668. He married Ann Martha Boucher at Elizabethtown on June 28, 1668, the marriage license given by Phillip Carteret. On March 20,1671-2 he purchased property from Francis Barber in Elizabethtown, the deed of sale stating "Francis Barber of Elizabethtown, planter, sells to Vincent Ronyon, 40 rods long by 16 rods wide, on the south side of the house lot of George Pack, fronting on the highway ...". Note the spelling of Vincent's name, three (3) years after his marriage it was already being americanized.

The stern Puritan element predominated in Elizabethtown, which made life unpleasant for Vincent, and he disposed of his property there and moved to the Baptist cammunity, at Piscataway, Middlesex County, New Jersey. In the spring of 1677, he purchased a farm of 154 1/2 acres on the Raritan River where he raised his family. He was a carpenter and farmer.

Children of Vincent Rongnion and Ann Boutcher are:

i. John Vincent Runyon88,89, born February 14, 1669 in Elizabethtown, New Jersey90,91; died Bef. November 1744 in Rocky Hill, Somerset County, New Jersey92; married Ann Elizabeth Dunn July 20, 1692 in Piscaraway, Middlesex County, NJ92; born May 19, 1675 in Hunterdon County, NJ92; died 1756 in Rocky Hill, Somerset County, New Jersey93.



Notes for John Vincent Runyon:

John Runyon was born 1669 in Elizabeth Town, New Jersey, and at the age of 6 or 7 years moved with his parents to Piscataway. On January 20, 1692 when about 23 years of age, he maried Elizabeth Dunn who resided in Piscataway. About 13 years later, he moved his family southwestward to Rocky Hill in the next county of Somerset, not far from his brother Thomas who lived near Hopewell. John and his brother Thomas became members of thr Baptist Church of Hopewell.

John Runyon died intestate befor November, 1744. We know his death was befor November, 1744 because the will of his brother-in-law, Samuel Dunn, dated November 9, 1744 refers to Samiel's sister Elizabeth as the "widow of John Runyon".



ii. Vincent Runyon94, born 1671 in Piscataway, New Jersey94; died March 1724 in Middlesex County, New Jersey94; married Mary Hull December 02, 1691 94; born August 10, 1670 94; died February 02, 1757.

Notes for Peter Runyon:

Peter Runyon died in October 1755. His will dated September 20, 1750, proved November 3, 1755, is abstracted in N.J. Cal. Wills (1751 - 1760), pages 276-277. The will of his widow, Providence was dated January 18, 1759, proved July 14, 1760, N.J. Cal. Wills, page 277.

It should be noted that the wills of Peter and Providence do not include several childern that are atributed in several publications as childern of Peter and Providence. Those childern not listed are; Sarah, John, Vincent, Rachel, Elizabeth, and Samuel. Baised upon the fact that these childern are not listed in eather will, CAUTION should be observed as to their parentage. ( Source: Harmon R. Clark, Jr., Runyon.rft, Page 7.)
