I'm working on Runyon family out of Kentucky. All printed genealogiesI've seen indicate an early arrival in the New Jersey area. FrenchHuguenot background. I can't make a connection between the early NJgroups and my "first" Runyon in Kentucky. Although several in theprinted genealogies indicate that the families moved to Kentucky.Missing links!! My first is John Runyon who married Sarah StoutFebruary. 1 or 12, 1808 in Fayette Co., KY. The Stouts were also a NJfamily.
There is a North Carolina bunch of Runyon that have been written up asdescendants of a Barefoot Runyon. So the emigration patterns aren'tclear yet. Good luck. Let me know if you think we are connected.

Notes 4/98 - Runyon Ancestry from James M Runyon is at odds currently. Ihave the materials based on the work of Tom Runyan linking James withJohn Hyde Runyon as his father but there is the question of who James'smother was. Tom Runyan says it was Patty Barrett , while Suellyn takesthe exception that James M Runyon father is just "John" married to SarahStout?
Work needs to be done on this.
Marriage dates need to be reviewed? and possible death date for PattyBarrett

99. Nancy Cooley
Nancy Cooley, daughter of Jacob Cooley of Pittsylvania Co., VA andGreenville Dist., SC. Nancy was the widow of David Reese** when shemarried William Holliday. Her Reese children can be proven but herchildren by William Holliday
cannot be proven with any certainty. Nancy Cooley & David Reese hadJacob, James and Elizabeth Reese.
It can be proven that Nancy Cooley Reese Holliday was alive in 1807 whenher father deeded her a Negro. She had died by 1816 when her father’sGreenville Dist. undated will was recorded Nancy was surely dead by c1810 as William Holliday and his second wife, Sarah/Sallie Cothran, had adaughter born 1811.
5 Jul 1798- By this date David Reese is dead, Jacob Reese is an orphan &William Holliday is in Greenville Dist., SC (State of SC vs David Jones.David Jones shot Jacob Reese' horse in the rear... On purpose. JacobCooley was guardian of Jacob Reese.)
104. Isiah O'Flinn
The Document on file in Hardeman County, Tenn reflecting that a IsiahFlinn received a Deed of trust from Jesse Pipkin June the 11 1838, inHardeman County.
This information suggest that the a fore mentioned Isiah was the fatherof the younger Isiah Flinn, b. April 23, 1807.
The fact that the younger Isiah who passed away on either April 14, 1838or May 28 1838, was after after the deed was executed.
The possibility of another Isiah Flinn existing in Hardeman County seemsslim.
106. John Carter Teague
John C. Teague, a miller and surveyor, born in Laurens County, SouthCarolina, son of William Teague, (23 November 1763-23 September 1846) andhis wife Elizabeth Miller, moved with his parents to Wilson County,Tennessee and then to Hardeman County.

Information used as excerpt from History of Hardeman County with commentsby Elizabeth Greer McMasters
Also have that John was from Mechlenburg, North Carolina . source unclear
Why John's wife, Nancy, was not listed in the census of 1850 is a puzzleif she did not die until 1861?
It appears John was associated with

108. Campbell (possible) McGuire
Campbell McGuire who sold a slave to James. See bill of Sale dated Aprilrth, 1847. This could be a basis to link him as the father of James andJohn McGuire.
127. Goeheme Brochet
My translation of the name of Henry Simon's wife on the Marriage licensefor Jeanne and Jean appears to differ from Scott's. Goeheme Brochet is avery common French name. In the margin that document says in French"Marriage de Jean Tronson de Jeanne Simon". In the second paragraph inthe 4th line it says: "fille (daughter)de (of) Henry Simon cultivator(farmer) et (and) Goeheme Brochet ses (her) pere et mere (father andmother) et habitants (and inhabitants) de (of) cette (this) commune(town)." Take a look and see if her father's wife's name looks correctto you as Goeheme Brochet. By the way, in the birth certificate forJeanne Simon it appears another mother may be listed. (Perhaps her "real"mother died and her father remarried??)
