Further research on Joseph & Catherine Runyon show that Joseph was 33 years senior to Catherine. He was born
in New Jersey a farmer and can be found on census records starting in 1860. There are some other Runyon family memebers living
in the neighborhood. Julia 20, Almidia 16, Aaron 28 a farmer laborer and his family and Vincent 26 a laborer and his family.I
have been unable to find those family members after the 1860 census. I am assuming those listed above were children of
Joseph but the 1880 census lists that Joseph was only married one time.
The surname changes in the 1880's from Runnion to Runyon. We find that Joseph tombstone indicated he died in 1878 but
Joseph & Catherine living in Lehman Twp., in 1880, he is ill but were counted on the census that year, so this would
mean he died some time after 1880.
My friend & fellow researcher Randy Brown, had sent me an e-mail to check to see "What was happening" and I
told him about my freezing fun cemetery hunting in January and about my findings. Imagine my surprise when a returned e-mail
told me he was related to Jospeh Runyon!!!!. Joseph his ggg-grandfather did have a 1st wife named Margaret Poyers.He
discovered a hand written note at Monroe Co., Hist. Assoc that discribes this cemetery and added burials. He knows of 8 children
born to Joseph & Margaret; Simeon Shotwell, Charlotte, Joesph, Aaron, Vincent (his relative), Mary Elizabeth, Julia &
