PREFACE AND EXPLANATIONS, 



A FEW words, both apologetic and explanatory, are here premised, 
inasmuch as this book of genealogies is believed to contain some 
features peculiar to itself, — at least, in the extent to which they 
are carried out; while, from previously observing the difficulty 
which persons of no more than ordinary intelligence have found in 
tracing the records of books of this kind, so familiar to the gene- 
alogist, the author has been convinced that explanations and direc- 
tions for using cannot well be made too minute or explicit. 

The first design of this collection was simply to furnish a register 
of all the children, both of sons and daughters, of those who, being 
descended from the three ancestors assumed in the respective 
" Parts," originally bore their surname, in some one of the various 
styles of its orthography. This register is now very nearly com- 
plete. A few supposable omissions among the earlier generations 
it is now impossible to supply, — and for the very few among later 
generations, it is not advisable longer to wait. 

Entire uniformity and impartiality have also been observed in 
the registry of these descendants. The well-approved plan of the 
" Slafter " and " Spalding Memorials " has been substantially fol- 
lowed. Consecutive numbers are used on the left margins of the 
pages all through the book, no two individuals ordinarily appearing 
with the same number, and many being entered twice, or with two 
numbers, both as members and as heads of families. All descend- 
ants, bearing the original patronymic, can therefore be readily 
traced by observing the following simple directions. For finding 
any name of a Runnels or Reynolds, consult Index No. 1 , where 
all the Christian names, only, are alphabetically arranged, to which 



VI PREFACE AND EXPLANATIONS. 

each person may append the surname with whichever mode of 
• spelling he may choose ! Where several of the same Christian name 
are given in the Index, the year of birth, when known, preceding 
each name, will assist in determining which person of the common 
Christian name is meant. The number after each name is the con- 
secutive number at which, in the main body of the book, the person 
is first entered as a child, in all cases except of the original ances- 
tors themselves. When the individual was not married, or being 
married was not known at the time of reporting to have had chil- 
dren, as also in case the personal record is comparatively short ; 
everything respecting that individual is stated at this only place of 

entry, as a child. Otherwise a higher, bracketed [ ] number, 

directly after the name, refers to the place farther on in the book, 
where that same individual is entered as the head of a family, the 
smaller bracketed number there following the name, referring back 
again to the first number, as found in the Index. Here, too, after 
name and bracketed number, the pedigree of the individual is 
briefly indicated in parenthesis by the use of small exponential 
figures, the first over the name in question, thus, " Samuel*," show- 
ing the generation to which the individual belongs, the next being 
the father with exponent one less, then the grandfather with exponent 
one less, etc., back to the first ancestor whose name appears with 
the exponent ^, thus, SamueU. All other information, besides 
the birth of the individual, is given at this point, in larger type, 
with sketches of history, in some cases, more or less extended, the 
whole preceding the list of children entered with the first consecu- 
tive numbers found in the Index, as before stated. Any line can 
thus be traced backward by following the smaller bracketed num- 
bers after parents' names, and forward by following the larger 
bracketed numbers after children's names. 

While collecting material for the male lines, as above, it was 
found that a large amount of valuable genealogical information 
was being obtained respecting families of other names in the vari- 
ous female lines. The author has thought that by an*anging these 
records in gi^oups under their respective mothers, or ancestresses 
who first bore the Runnels or Reynolds name, a greater variety and 
enhanced value would be given to the work, as a whole. Of course 
it was absolutely impossiblei to trace out all these side lines, for no 



PREFACE AND EXPLANATIONS. Vll 

single book could contain them. Nor has such fulness or complete- 
ness been aimed at, as in the main lines just alluded to. The 
writer has, therefore, restricted himself to those families with which 
he was previously acquainted, whose records could be incidentally 
obtained without delaying or embarrassing the main purpose in 
view, and whose members have furnished their records, of their 
own accord, with desires that they be inserted. If any are disposed 
to complain because these female lines are not better filled and 
more fUlly carried out, they must bear in mind that it was impos- 
sible to bestow exhaustive pains upon this part of the work without 
"giving heed to endless genealogies," contrary to the apostle's 
direction; also, that everything which was fhmished, has been 
scrupulously published; and where much was not given, much 
cannot reasonably'' be required. 

All descendants of the original ancestors, however, in these 
female lines, and the names of all persons who intermarried with 
the various families noticed in the book, are catalogued in Index 
No. 2. The surnames are alphabetically entered, and under each 
the Christian names also in alphabetical order, followed by the 
consecutive number belonging to each name, or that under which 
it may be found, with the added cardinals 1, 2, 3, etc., as in the 
book, for children of the third generation fi'om the original Runnels 
or Reynolds daughter whose line is traced ; with added cardinals 
in parentheses (1), (2), (3), etc., for children of the fourth gene- 
ration ; with added Roman figures I, II, III, etc., for children of 
the fifth generation, and with added Romans in parentheses (I), 
(II), (III), etc., in a few instances, for children of the sixth 
generation. (See these directions more fully illustrated in the 
" Addenda.") 

Many more notices of individuals and other biographical sketches 
perhaps equally worthy of insertion might have .been secured; but 
the author has confined himself to such as were previously known, 
or came providentially to hand without special or direct efforts to 
obtain them. These are inserted chiefly to relieve the monotony 
of bare genealogical tables. A greater number would have swelled 
the book to an inordinate size. The sketches are more fbll in sev- 
eral cases where material previously published, in some form, was 
found pertaining to the individuals in question ; and where, espec- 



VIU PREFACE AND EXPLANATIONS. 

ially, different phases of life, in different periods or localities, could 
be illustrated ; as, for example, of Revolutionary life in [82], [136], 
[215], and [2208] ; of pioneer life in [123], [458], [1^24], and 
[2434]. Here, too, as in respect to the fulness of the female lines, 
must the principle obtain, that only where much is given can much 
be required. In every case the substance, at least, of all informa- 
tion sent has been incoiporated. 

A few epitaphs, anecdotes, and scraps of poetry are introduced, 
not as a matter of literary pretension, but for variety's sake, and 
to gratify, in some cases, the desires of those whose buried treas- 
ures may thus more vividly be kept in memory. 

In accordance with the wise saying ascribed to John Quincy 
Adams, that " Posterity delights in details," more full and minute 
citations from old registries of deeds, probate records, and other 
public documents, are here given, than are customary in most sim- 
ilar works, for the reason that the proof of many genealogical 
points, established, is thu3 presented ; while all the information 
which can be gathered respecting one's earlier ancestors is naturally 
gratifying, and barren facts or dates thus grouped together, though 
of no general interest except to immediate descendants, frequently 
suggest far more than can be expressed in words. 

No effort has been made to trace our ancestry to the old country, 
as such attempts are rarely attended with sufficient satisfaction to 
warrant the requisite outlay of time and money. Our family his- 
tory in America is all we need, while the "Roll of Honor" is a 
silent but eloquent reminder of what sacrifices our fathers and 
their sons have made in the several national struggles. 

A few minor explanations are here appended. If two different 
dates were found, — as of births on town conflicting with private 
records, — or if a similar uncertainty existed as to names, etc., 
the more probable is given first, and the other directly after, in 
parenthesis. Sometimes, however, a word in parenthesis is only 
explanatory of what precedes, and such cases are to be determined 
by the sense alone. 

In the female lines, the children of Runnels or Reynolds daugh- 
ters (as well as sons), though marrying into other families, and 
thus changing the name, are yet entered with consecutive numbers ; 
but the surname is designed invariably to follow the oldest child of 



PREFACE AND EXPLANATIONS. IX 

the given family, in parenthesis, and likewise to be supplied with 
all the other children (consecutive numbers) of that family, unless 
repeated. Other family names, introduced by marriage, also appear 
in parentheses after each oldest child of that name in the next gen- 
eration ; and on returning to the previous generation, the previous 
surname is usually repeated, in parenthesis, after the Christian name 
of the next child. Several deviations from this rule will indeed be 
observed, through an oversight in preparing copy, the most important 
of which will be corrected, in " Errata," at the close of the volume. 

All Christian names, appearing in the direct line of descent from ' 
common ancestors, are printed in small capitals, except by mistake 
in a few instances ; they were also designed to be given in full, 
though we still have only the initials of middle names from some 
families. 

The term " unmarried " is never, or rarely, employed. The fact 
may be inferred, if nowhere stated to the contrary, except in those 
families of which the records are evidently not filled, and mere 
names are given. Where one place of settlement or residence is 
stated in immediate connection with the head of a family, it may 
be left as a matter of inference that the children were all bom in 
that place, unless otherwise stated. On the other hand, places of 
parents' residence are sometimes to be infen*ed from the given 
places of children's births. 

Consecutive numbera are always referred to in brackets. 

The usual abbreviations for the names of States are employed, 
and usually but once each after each family name, when the place 
of residence is first given. Every town afterwards mentioned is 
supposed to be in the same State, if without special designation. 

Other abbreviations are those in common use, as " b." for " born," 
" m." for " married," " d." for " died," etc. 

A mark of interrogation ( ?) after a name or date implies un- 
certainty. 

Previously to 1752, the year, in England, commenced on the 25th 
of March ; hence, for many years afterwards, writers and tran- 
scribers of dates occurring between Jan. 1 and March 25, were 
accustomed to signify both years, thu3: "Mar. 5, 1744-5," i. e. 
"1744" according to the "Old Style" of reckoning, "1745" 
according to the " New Style." 



X PREFACE AND EXPLANATIONS. 

The estates and moneyed transactions of our fathers were often 
much larger than they seem to us, judging fi'X)m the figures ; the 
value of money in former times — except during the Revolutionary 
war — being much greater than at present. 

A blank " Family Record " is inserted at the end of each book, 
thus enabling different families to supply deficiencies in their records, 
or continue them in future years. 

Some patrons of this work, especially among the female lines, 
may be liable to a lack of general interest and a feeling of disap- 
pointment in the same, because their personal acquaintance is 
confined to a very limited circle of the numerous families and indi- 
viduals here recorded. But such must bear in mind that the book 
could never have been printed except by thus collecting the greatest 
possible number of families, all of whom could claim a direct con- 
nection with some common ancestor. They must also content 
themselves with the charitable conclusion that all other parts of the 
work, though uninteresting to them, may yet prove gratifying to 
other persons in other family groups. 

The labor of compiling and arranging these records has been 
great, but to the compiler himself exceedingly pleasant. No less 
than eight hundred letters have been written, and at least an equal 
number of circulars sent out. Much time has also been spent in 
the inspection of public documents in town and county archives, 
and many pleasant visits have been enjoyed at the homes of 
numerous " cousins," all of which are thankfully remembered. 

To all those who have kindly aided him in the supply of mate- 
rial, the author would here express heartfelt gratitude, — next to 
Him who only hath " made him to prpsper." To the printers, also, 
for their kindness and courtesy during the eight months occupied 
in going through the press, with continuous additions and emenda 
tions ; for the remarkable fewness of errors and mistakes, consid 
ering the character of the work ; and for the highly satisfactory 
mechanical execution of the book itself, — the thanks of all inter- 
ested are justly due*

GENERAL INTRODUCTION, 



iriTH 



REMARKS UPON THE ORIGIN Al ORTHOGRAPHY OF THE NAME. 



The true genealogist is not solely or chiefly influenced by a 
feeling of family pride. He distinguishes, as a late writer in the 
*' Boston Journal" has happily done, " between a pride of ancestry 
and a taste for pedigree." *' The former is senseless ; but the latter, 
he claims, is at least harmless." Adopting the noble sentiment of 
Burke, that " those who do not treasure up the memory of their 
ancestoi*s, do not deserve to be remembered by posterity," he 
would yet by no means expose himself to the quaint sarcasm of Sir 
Thomad Overbury, that *' those who rest their claim to considera- 
tion on the merit of their ancestry, and not their own individual 
worth, resemble a hill of potatoes, — the best portion is under 
ground I " 

It, therefore, matters not that his ancestors or their descendants 
are unknown to fame. He desires to glorify the God of his fathers 
by rescuing their names, however humble, from oblivion, by com- 
mending their Christian virtues, and by transmitting their history, 
whatever it was, to those who shall come after. He is thus enlarg- 
ing the field of actual knowledge to the " rising generations " of 
the several families represented, and his inquiries, as another has 
said, are " fraught with instruction in affording us an insight into 
the habits of life and social ways of periods long past, and in 
fixing in the memory historical epochs and events," by enabling 
different persons to associate at least the chronology of such events 
with their own forefathers or relatives who may have been inci- 
dentally connected with them. He (the genealogist) would also 



XU GENERAL INTRODUCTION, ETC. 

afford to each family circle of the more recent generations a per- 
manent, though brief, memorial of the loved who have passed from 
their embrace, — "not lost, but gone before," — feeling assured 
that the treasured wame, even of the youngest child in a family 
record, is, to some hearts, no unmeaning expletive. 

Actuated by such motives, the author's original design in prepar- 
ing the present work was to collect and present a complete list, with 
brief biographical sketches, of all persons, arranged by families, 
who bore or still bear the cognate surnames of Bunnels, Runnals, 
or Reynolds, and are proved to have been descended from the com- 
mon ancestor whose name stands at the head of each Part. 

On commencing his investigations, however, he was soon con- 
fronted by the troublesome fact that his own and his ancestors* 
name is one of the most difficult to trace and connect in the way 
proposed. Assuming that those records which contain actual sig- 
natures, like wills, deeds, etc., and the records of towns where the 
individuals lived, were to be regarded as most reliable for the or- 
thography of the name, he found such records unanimous in giving 
it " Runels " or " Runnels " in the earlier generations of Part I ; 
though clerks, or transcribers of other records, had spelled the 
name variously, either by confounding it with the several ancient 
methods of spelling the English *' Reynolds," by using the vowels 
indiscriminately in either of the two syllables ; or, by doubling the 
consonants n and L Hence he found, for the varied orthographies 
of Part I, nineteen in all : " Runels, Runnels, Runeles, Runells, 
Runnells, Runiles, Runils, Runnils, Runills, Runiels, Runniels, 
Runails, Runnals, Runnalls, Rennals, Rennalls, Renolls, Rennolds, 
and Reynolds." 

Only one branch of this family (Part I) is now known to re- 
tain the more ancient " Runels " ; several branches, or rather 
individuals, in later times have adopted "Runnells," while sev- 
eral other branches, mostly in the later generations and in 
the family of Stephen [10], have taken refuge from all confusion 
in the more common and less ambiguous " Reynolds." As, how- 
ever, " Runels " was found to be the only well authenticated name 
of the common ancestor Samuel [1], and as " Runnels" is the or- 
thography more generally used by his descendants, the author felt 
obliged to regai'd this as the standard, though leaving each family 



GENERAL INTRODUCTION, ETC. Xlll 

at liberty to retain its own method of spelling, whether traditional 
or assumed. 

Similar remarks would apply to the other Parts of the book. 
Among the records consulted for Parts II and III (mostly in New 
Hampshire), were the following sixteen varied orthographies, besides 
a greater part of those already given : " Runals, Runnalds, Banals, 
Eanells, Benels, Renells, Renals, Reneles, Rennels, Renolds, 
Rennalds, Ronals, Roneles, Ronels, Roniels," and the evident 
contraction "R'nls." 

The Reynolds and Runnels families of the " Appendix " also 
afforded fourteen additional variations, as follows : " Raynolds, 
Roynalds, Reinolds, Renold, Ranalls, Renes, Renls, Rennell, Ren- 
alls, Reanols, Ronalls, Runolds, Runnall, and Runalls." Thus 
there are furnished no less than forty-nine different ways of spell- 
ing the names under consideration, while a glance at the last cita- 
tions (or the " Appendix " at the close of this volume) wiU show 
that even the " Reynolds" orthography is not of undeviating usage. 
This latter name, indeed, is generally admitted to have been derived 
from the old German " Reginald" ; and it cannot certainly be de- 
termined whether Runnels (or Runels), as above, is a corruption 
of this English Reynolds, as is claimed by some, or whether it has 
an independent Scotch derivation. Probability favors the latter 
supposition The word "Runnel" is a Scotch term, meaning a 
small brook, or rivulet. It is found in the poetry of Sir Walter 
Scott ; see " Introduction " to " The Bridal of Triermain " : — 

** For here, compeird to disunite, 
Round petty isles tlie runnels glide.*' 

Also, Canto 2d, of the same poem : — 

" See how the little runnels leap, 
In threads of silver, down the steep, 
To swell the brooklet*s moan." 

Nor is this an obsolete Scotch word, as claimed by some ; 
for in one of the later works of Hugh Miller, ll. d., *' The Cruise 
of the Betsy, with Rambles of a Geologist; or. Ten Thousand 
Miles over the Fossiliferous Deposits of Scotland," printed in 1858, 
are the following allusions : p. 326, " While at the bottom of the 



XIV OEKEBAL INTRODUCTION, ETC. 

hollows, washed by the runnels, which, in the slow lapse of j'ears, 
have been the architects of the whole, we find cairn-like accumula- 
tions of water-rolled stones, the disengaged pebbles and boulders 
of the deposit" (bouMer clay) ; p. 514, "The sun broke out in 
great beauty after the showterS) glistening on a thousand minute 
runnels, that came streaming down the precipices, and revealing 
through their vapory haze the horizontal lines of strata." See, 
also, pp. 51, 301, 830, 334, and 376. 

As confirming the above supposable derivation, Bowditch, in his 
" Suffolk Surnames,*" calls *' Runnells " " a name taken from the 
face of nature" ; instancing '* Rev. Mr. Runnells, teacher" (prob- 
ably mistaken for trustee, see [2046]) ** at the New Hampton 
Institute, N. H., 1858." 

Another possible derivation of the name has been suggested from 
the old Norwegian " Ronald," as we find the name of " Baron 
Ronald Urka," who was present at the death of King Haco, the 
last of the Norwegian invaders, who died at Orkney in the thir- 
teenth century. Hence we have North and South " Ronald sha " 
among the present names of the islands of the Orkneys ; as, also, 
the unfortunate hero of one of Walter Scott's minor poems, *' Lord 
Ronald." This derivation is, however, less probable ; and Runnels 
might as reasonably originate in Reynolds as in Ronald, except as 
the latter was afterwards a Scotch rather than an English name. 

But the fact that the Runnels families are undoubtedly of Scotch 
extraction (see Introductions to Parts I and III, and [3936]), 
would seem to favor an independent Scotch derivation for the name 
itself, probably from an object in nature, as shown above. Rey- 
nolds, to be sure, in pronunciation, often sounds like Runnels, and 
the latter, on that account, is thought to be a very reasonable cor- 
ruption of the former ; yet we must, evidently, go farther back 
than any of the dates or records cited for the Ruimels families of 
this work, to prove their identity with the name or race of- Rey- 
nolds. The conclusion to which the writer has arrived is this, that 
Runnels is, for the most part, Scotch, while Reynolds is English and 
Irish. He has found numerous families by the name of Rey^nolds 
in Lowell, Lawrence, Salem, Boston, and Hartford, which were of 
Irish origin, and some of them were evidently of very recent arrival ; 
but no Scotch families have been discovered bearing that name. 



GENERAL INTBODUCTION, ETC, XV 

The old Beynolds families, noted in the Appendix, are of undoubted 
English origin; and their descendants hare quite generally and 
tenaciously held to the original spelling of their name, — with 
slight occasional variations, as before noted, — at least, there is 
no documentary evidence that any of them have changed the name 
to Runnels. On the other hand, many branches of the Runnels 
families, as will be seen in various parts of this book, have changed 
to Reynolds, on the supposition that this was the original name of 
which Runnels was only a corruption. Hence the case stands that 
many of the Reynolds name are found among 'Runnels families, 
but none of the Runnels name are found among Reynolds families; 
and the conclusion is that, aside from the changes just noted, the 
two names, though sounding alike in rapid pronunciation, are 
really separate and distinct. 

No " coat-of-arms " of Runnels or Reynolds families has come to 
the author's knowledge, except that noticed binder [2003], claimed 
to have been obtained in England from a book of heraldry in the 
library of the royal college. 

Not being versed in the science of heraldry, the writer confesses 
that he cannot interpret all the terms employed in this description, 
of which an exact copy is here given for the gratification of those 
who are skilled or interested in armorial ensigns, and who also may 
be better able than himself to judge of its genealogical importance. 

^^Arma; Argent (white) ; masoned ; sable (black), upon a chief 
indented of the last (black). A plate charged with a rose, gules 
(red), barbed and seeded, etc.; between two fleurs d lys. Or 
(gold). — Crest; a fox passant, gold, holding in its mouth a rose, 
as in the arms, slipped and leaved, vert (green). — Motto: " Mums 
aheneus esto." — (Underneath) "Runnells.'* — (On the back) "The 
family of Runnells is originally from the town of Biddeford, in the 
county of Devon. There are five descents in Sir Wm. Seager^s 
visitation, in 1619." 

This latter statement, seeming to point to an English rather than 
a Scotch origin, might lead one, in view of the foregoing conclu- 
sions, to question the historical accuracy of the whole document ; 
unless we fall back on another fanciful derivation of the name 
which has been suggested, viz., that the first who bore it, and for 
whose services this coat-of-arms was cieated, was a courier, or 



XVI GENERAL INTRODUCTION, ETC. 

bearer of despatches, of remarkable swiftness and shrewdness, 
during the wars of the Roses, 1455-1485 ; that he was enlisted on 
the side of the house of Lancaster, hence the red rose in the fox's 
mouth, and that he was accustomed literally to " run ells ** — per- 
haps two English ells — at a stride ! But even on the supposition 
that this is a true derivation, it is far more likely that the first 
" Runnells," or " Runner of Ells," was a tall, gaunt Scotchman, 
rather than a stout and burly Englishman I though he may have 
afterwards settled in Devonshire, and his descendants have been 
multiplied there, against the time of " Sir William Seager's 
visitation " I

GENEALOGICAL MEMOIR 



or 



SAMUEL RUNELS, 



OF BRADFORD, MASS., 



1703— 1748. 



INTRODUCTION. 



No connection can be established, either by records or tradition, 
between Samuel Runels, of Bradford, Mass., 1703-1745, and any 
of the numerous Reynolds families which, according to Savage, 
had previously settled in different parts of New England (see 
Appendix) ; nor can a connection be found with any others of the 
Reynolds or Runnels name in this country, except with the brother, 
who is said to have accompanied him hither, and with Job and 
John Runels, or Runals, of Durham, N. H., 1733, who are also 
presumed, on good traditional authority, to have been his younger 
brothers. (See Introductions to Parts II and III.) 

Among the descendants of Samuel, tradition is uniform in 
ascribing to him and his family a Scotch descent, and in intro- 
ducing them to this country by the wa^'^ of Nova Scotia (New 
Scotland). 

A common legend has been repeated, with varied embellish- 
ments, in at least three distinct branches of his family, that he, 
with an older brother, "between the ages of 16 and 20," escaped 
from an attack of Indians, or pirates, upon their father's residence 
" near Halifax," and " came in an open boat " either " to a British 
ship," or " all the way to Salem." This immediate Nova-Scotian 
origin of Samuel seems also confirmed by an allusion in his 
will. The term "Eastern parts" would not then have been applied 
to the " District of Maine," as that was a part of Massachusetts. 
No place east of Essex County would naturally be meant, which 
was itself farther west than Arcadia, or the present provinces of 
Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, 

His grandfather, too, either as owner or occupant, had evidently 
gained for him a rit^ht to those lands. It is, therefore, reasonable 
to infer that this " Grandfather Runels " may have been among

those Scotch settlers who came to NoVa Scotia with La Tour, a 
French Protestant, in 1628. They landed at Port Royal (now 
Annapolis), and built the so-called ** Scotch Fort" on the east side 
of the Basin- (Granville) 5 the remains of which were visible as late 
as 1829. 

When Sir William Phips of Massachusetts captured Port Royal, 
May 20, 1690, the English dismantled, but did not garrison, 
the fort ; and we are told by Haliburton (Hist, of Nova Scotia, 
Vol. I, p. 72), that " In this defenceless state the unfortunate 
Arcadians in thcU neighborhood were attacked by two piratical 
vessels, the crews of which set fire to a number of houses, slaugh- 
tered their cattle, hanged some of the inhabitants, and deliberately 
burned one family, whom they had shut up in their dwelling-house 
to prevent their escape." 

No similar depredations were committed in Nova Scotia, accord- 
ing to liistory, for several years before or afterwards. If, therefore, 
the substantial verity of our legend, be assumed, the subsequent 
facts of his history would favor the conclusion that Samuel may 
have found his way as a refugee from the scene just described, 
and a homeless adventurer to the shores of Essex, in the year 1690. 
Subsequent tradition, in a New-England family, would naturally 
confound the barbarities of pirates with those of Indians, as also 
the name of the more recent with that of the original key and 
capital of Nova Scotia. 

Of the older brother nothing is known except, traditionally, that 
he '^ settled in the South," and that grandsons of both the brothers 
wer^ associated together, at West Point, as fellow-soldiers in the 
old French war. He is supposed to have been the ancestor of 
those more recently bearing the name of Runnels in the Southwest, 
among whom were Col. Harmon Runnels, of the Revolutionary war ; 
his son. Gov. Runnels, of Mississippi, who died Dec. 15, 1857, in 
Houston, Texas ; and his grandson, the present Ex-Gov. Runnels, 
of Texas, after whom a county in that State is named. 



FIRST GENERATION. 



1. Samuel^ wasb., as supposed, about the year 1674, near Port 
Eoyal, N. S. ; m. Abigail Middleton, probably of Haverhill, Mass., 
1700-2. The old Haverhill record has " Samuell Renolls and 
Abigail Middeltine." But this orthography is of no authority in 
opposition to the earlier and more numerous citations of the name 
on the Bradford Records, both christian names and the wife's orig- 
inal surnayne being also incorrect. All their children, except the 
second, are given on the Bradford Records as " sons and daughters 
of Samuel and Abigail Runels." It is inferred either that she was at 
her father's home in Haverhill at the birth of her second child, or that 
they lived first in Bradford, afterwards in Haverhill, and then in 
Bradford again, where they were finally settled, as proved by the 
following abstract of Deed and Will from the Essex Records in 
Salem, Mass. 

" Dec. 26, 1710. John Bolnton to Samuel Runels in Bradford, Husband- 
man, in consideration of £7, part paid and part secured by bill, a certain 
piece of land lying in the township of Bradford, 20 acres as it is bounded, 
be it more or less ; bounded on the N. E. corner on a little small red oak 
marked and on the South side of a frog pond ; and so running on the East 
side upon land of Thomas West till it come to Boxford line ; and on the 
South on Boxford line to the stump of an old tree, with stones by it, on 
Boxford line ; and from that stump, on the West side, by land of Klchard 
Kimball, unto a stake and stones on the N. W. corner." 

We have no evidence of real estate as possessed in Massachusetts 
at an earlier date by a member of this family ; implying that though 
married some eight or ten years previouslj^, this ancestor did not 
have a " home of his own," in Bradford, till 1710-11. It is evident, 
too, from this deed, and the price paid, that his original twenty-acre 
lot must have been comparatively wild and less valuable land at the 
time of purchase. The northern bounds are not given, but its loca- 
tion on Boxford line is made certain. This was afterwards known in 
Bradford as the "Job Runnels Place," where the ''Job Runnels 
apples," excellent for their keeping qualities the year round, were 
found growing. J. Warren Chad wick now owns the same site, 
near Chadwick*s or Little Pond. The land was transferred from 
John Runnels [22] to James Buswell, and by the latter to Jona. 
Chad wick. The old Runnels house was standing as late as 1840,

on a knoll a few rods southwest of Mr. Chadwick's, with the famous 
apple-tree near it. The stump of the '' little small red oak," alluded 
to as the northeast-corner bound, afterwards a gigantic tree, was 
dug up in June, 1871, and a piece of the same is now preserved by 
the writer as a choice relic. Five other deeds show that this orig- 
inal farm in Bradford was nearly doubled by Samuel [1], and that 
he purchased a tract of land in Newbury of Nathaniel Dole. He 
was also assessed for taxes in Boxford, 1712-17, one of those years, 
as per record, £2 6s, His descendants in Concord, N. H., have 
a tradition that he was interested in the early settlement of that 
town ; hence he is mentioned in Dr. Bouton's History as " signing 
a petition to Gov. 8hute for the granting of Penacook, 1721 ;" 
" enrolled as a settler, 1725 ;" *' taking a home lot near the present 
city, 1727," and " having a house erected, 1731." His home lot, 
"No. 16, Ist Div." was "fenced and improved," — afterwards 
deeded to William Stickney. His house, built but " not inhabited " 
by him, stood nearly opposite the old Abbot Fort, Main Street, on 
the spot now occupied by the house of Woodbridge Odlin, Esq. 
He also owned five acres on the " Sugar Ball Plain." (Hist, of 
Concord, p. 126.) 

The Church Records say that " Samuel Runnels was admitted 
to full communion with the Congregational Church in Bradford, 
Nov. 27, 1709, was baptized, and owned ye Covenant said day." 
Ever after he brought his children very early to baptism as " chil- 
dren of the Covenant," the names of his five youngest appearing 
on the same Church Records, as below. His Will was dated 
"March 5, 1744-5," and "Proved, at Ipswich, Nov. 25, 1745." 
Abstract as follows : — 

" X, Samuel Runels, of Bradford, etc., yeoman, * ♦ bequeath to Abi- 
gaill my dearly and well beloved wife one cow, four sheep and my mare 
for her own use, also household goods and wearing apparel, and the free 
use and improvement of the East end of my house during her natural life. 
I give to my sons, Stephen and Job all my lands in Bradford, (they paying 
the legacies here mentioned) also to Stephen the East end of my house to 
come in possession after the decease of my wife, and to Job the West end 
of my house which he now lives in. As to my lands that may fall to me in 
the Eastern parts, by my Grandfather or Father HunelSj I give them to my 
four sons, Stephen, Samuel, Job and Ebenezer to be equally divided 
between them for quantity and quantity. 

** I give unto my beloved son Samuel Runels 25 shillings lawftil money, 
and that to be his portion in my estate with what I have already given 
him. 

** I give and bequeath unto my son Ebenezer Runels the sum of £35 
lawful money (or other payable bills of credit equivalent thereto) or to 
his lawful heirs, when he comes to the age of 21 years, to be paid by my 
Executors in equal parts, and that to be his portion out of my estate. 

**I give to Sarah Lakeman, or her heirs, £10 in six months after my 
decease ; and to my grand son, William Atwood, or his heirs, £5 lawftil 
money to be paid when he is 21 years of age. 

"I constitute my beloved sons, Stephen and Job, sole executors (to 
whom I give my live stock except what I have given to my wife by will), 
ordering them to pay my honest debts and ftineral charges and legacies 
above mentioned, and to give their mother, my now present wife, a decent 
burial at her decease." 



PART I. — FIRST GENERATION. 7 

The " Enventory " of his estate was taken by Thomas Kimball 
and two others, Dec. 3, 1745, and is still to be seen among the old 
papers of Ensign Enos Reynolds [64] : " Amounting, whole, in 
bills of ye last Tenor, £222 17s» 3d." Among the items spe- 
cified are " About 80 acres of land with buildings thereon, £160." 
" One pare of oxen £9." '' Thirteen barriels of syder, with bariels 
£3." " Waring apareal £5 Is. 6d.," and various " Utensiels for 
husbandry." He d. and was buried in Bradford. 

The writer was so happy as to discover his grave, in the old 
Bradford cemetery, in 1871 ! The rich satisfaction was also 
afforded of resetting the prostrated gravestones and re-marking 
their inscriptions, which read, upon the headstone, " Here lies 
buried the body of Sergt. Samuel Runels who died the 27th of 
October, 1745, aged 61st years"; on the footstone, ''Samuel 
Runels." Date of death corresponds with that upon the Town 
Records ; but a mistake of " 5 " for " 7 " was undoubtedly made 
in the age, as well as in the manner of expressing it. He must 
have been more than 61 years old, as appears from the birth of his 
oldest son, and the age of his second^ son's wife, buried at his side. 
Calling it ''71 years," the year of his birth, not otherwise ascer- 
tained, is reasonably fixed at 1674, This synchronizes with his 
supposed arrival from Nova Scotia in 1 690. We also learn, only 
from the above inscription, that he bore the military title of 
"Sergeant." His widow d. Oct. 11, 1753, in Bradford (Town 
Records). Their children were all b. in Bradford except the 
second. 

2. Stephen [10], b. May 14, 1703. 

8. Samuel [17], b. Dec. 17, 1706, probably in Hayerhill, as his blrtji 
appears on the Haverhill, and not on the Bradford Records ; the 
only child given on the former under his parents' names. 

4. John, b. March 9, 1710; d. within a year and one month. 

5. John, b. April 8, 1711;. d. July 6, 1713. The baptism of «* John, 

child of Samuel and Abigail Banels," appears on the Ch, Rec- 
ords "Apr. 1, 1711." If this is not a mistake. It belongs, evi- 
dently, to the older John, who must therefore have d. between 
Apr. 1 and 8, 1711. It is probably, however, designed for ** Apr. 
10 or 11, 1711," and so matks the baptism of this younger child. 

6. Job [20], b. June 18, 1712; bap. July 27, 1713. 

7. Sarah [30], b. Qct. 31, 1716; bap. Nov. 4, 1716. 

8. Abigail [43], b. Nov. 11, 1722; bap. 1722. 

9. Ebenezer [45], b. Nov. 20, 1726; bap. the next day. 



SECOND GENERATION. 



10. Stephen^ [2] (Samuel^), m. Esther Hovey, of Rowley, 1723, 
and was admitted to full communion with the Congregational Church 
in Bradford, as "Stephen son of Samuel," "Aug. 8, 1729." He 
lived in B. and there acquired some property as " a cooper," till 
"Jan. 14, 1735-6," under which date Zechariah Hardy deeded to 
him, " for £1 40 a piece of land in Boxford, which was formerly 
Nathaniel Hardy's." This marks the probable time of his settling 
in Boxford as a farmer, and about the same time he first appears 
among the tax-payers of that town. From the Essex Probate 
Records : " Inventory of Stephen Runnels, late of Boxford, yeo- 
man, deceased, intestate, prized, Apr. 12, 1753, and witnessed by 
Esther Runnels his widow " ; who also " rendered account, as ad- 
ministratrix of her husband's estate. Mar. 24, 1755." His estate, 
however, seems never to have been fully settled till after his son 
Stephen's death; as "Sept. 3, 1771, a Committee was appointed, 
by Nathaniel Ropes, Judge of Probate, to divide and set off, both 
for quantity and quality, one third part of all the real estate of 
Stephen Runnels unto his widow^ Esther EunneU, now Hovey^ as 
her right of dower in said real estate, to and for her use and im- 
provement during her natural life." According to the Boxford 
Records, she had m., 2d, Luke Hovey, of Boxford, " published Mar. 
16, 1755," thus regaining her maiden name. 

He did not come in possession of a part of his father's house in 
Bradford, as by terms of the will, his own death preceding that of 
his mother by some months, " Mar. 10, 1753," aged 50. (Boxford 
Town Records. ) Children : — 

11. Stephen [62], b. 1729, in Bradford ; bap. as " son of Stephen, Oct. 19, 

1729 " (Brad. Ch. R.). * 

12. Martha, b. 1782, in Bradford; bap. as •* dau. of Stephen, Dec. 31, 

1732," and probably d. young, as her name is not remembered in 
the family. 

13. EsTHKU [72], b. 1734, in Bradford; bap. as " dau. of Stephen, Dec. 

29, 1734." 

14. Asa, b. 1737. in Boxford ; d. young. 

16. William [74], b. June 28, 1740, in Boxford. 

16. Daniel [82], b. Sept. 16, 1742, in Boxford. 

17. Samuel^ [3] (SamueP), was admitted to full communion 
with the Cong. Church in BradLford, as " Samuel son of Samuel," 



PART I. — SECOND GENERATION. 9 

"Mar. 3, 1728." He m., Ist, Mrs. Anna Sessions, Feb. 18, 1730. 
Her crumbling gi'avestones were accidentally found, 1871, in the 
old Bradford cemetery, near the grave of Samuel [I]. Inscriptions 
with difficulty deciphered as follows : Head, " Here lies buried the 
body of Anna, the wife of Mr. Samuel Runels lu*" (Jun.), " who died 
20th of September, 1746, and in the 56th year of her age." Foot, 
"Anna Runels." This makes the year of her birth 1690, while 
the date of her death agrees with the Bradford Recs. He m., 2d, 
Hannah Emerson, of Haverhill, Nov. 19, 1747. (Haver. Recs.) 

He is called a "House Wright," "June 3, 1738," when Maxwell 
Hazeltine conveyed to him, for £36, " a parcel of marsh or meadow, 
scituate lying and being in Rowly, on Plumb Island" "May 1, 
1747," he bought of Eben Sherwin "for £650, old tenor, two 
pieces of land in Boxford, 51 acres." 

From these and seven othex deeds, we infer that within twenty 
years after his first marriage he added to the small property given him 
by his father (and probably, by his own industry at his trade) some 
forty acres of land in Bradford and at least eighty acres in Boxford ; 
also^that his estate at first was near that of his father's and the line 
of the two towns, at Little Pond, where he lived, perhaps at a home 
furnished by his first wife as the widow Sessions, till between 1747 
and 1749. He then became, probably at his second marriage, a 
resident of Boxford, on the other side of Little Pond, at the home- 
stead still occupied by some of his posterity. 

Two deeds are also found of "Apr. 2 " and " May 20, 1777," the 
latter giving him possession of a small "tract of marsh" in New- 
bury ; and the following deed will show to his Concord (N. H.) 
descendants the origin of their Horse Hill estate : " July 26, 1777 ; 
John and Benja. Jones of Beverly to Samuel Runnels of Box- 
ford, Gentleman^ for £48 a certain lott of land situated in Con- 
cord, in the county of Hillsboro' and State of N. Hamp., being a 
certain 80 acre lot in said township, lying at or near Horse Hill, 
so called." Tradition says that he was a lieut. in the old French 
war of 1756, with his son as a drum-major. He d. Apr. 12, 1783, 
aged 76 ; and " P'^eb. 3, 1784, administration of the Estate of Sam- 
uel Runnels, late of Boxford, gent., deceased, was granted to Sam- 
uel R, his son." His Inventory was given in, "Apr. 6, 1784." 
Property amounted to £699 4.-^., including farm, personal property, 
and one quarter part of a " gondola." rated at £2 58., defined by Coffin 
(Histoiy of Newbury) as a " hay boat," and probably used by 
Samuel [3] on Merrimack River for visiting his Plum Island and 
Newbury purchases. 

Return of commissioners, appointed for division of his estate, 
was made " May 8 " ; and " assignment made by Judge of Probate 
to Samuel Runnels and Anna Page, his only children^ July 6, 
1789." Children: — 

18. Samuel [93], b. Dec. 19, 1730, in Bradford (Ist wife) ; bap. as " Son 

of Samuel Jun., Dec. 20, 1730 " 

19. Anna [102], b. 1748-9, probably la Boxford; but bap. at the Brad- 

ford Church, "Feb. 2(5, 1749," as a "daughter of Samuel and 
Hannah B."

20. JoB^ [6] (SamueU), had settled as a farmer in Bradford 
with his father, as noticed in the latter's will, 1745 ; also, before 
this, "June 6, 1743," he had purchased of William Eastman for 
" £219 14:8,, old tener, 15 acres and 34 perches of land in Brad- 
ford, adjoining his father's." He doubtless bought out his brother 
Stephen's share of the original homestead, which ever afterwards, 
increased as above, was called after his own name. (See under 
Samuel[l].) He was admitted to full communion with the Cong. 
Church in Bradford, Oct. 3, 1736. His 1st wife, Abigail, whom 
he m. 1733, d. Oct. 14, 1753. He m., 2d, Mary Woodman, 
Oct. 5, 1758. The following is an abstract of his Will, made at 
Bradford, Mar. 9, 1770^ and proved at Salem, June 3, 1776, soon 
after his death (aged 64), of which we have no nearer date : — 

" To my wife Mary the use of one cow and four sheep during her wid- 
owhood, — to be kept by my two sons, — and the household goods that 
she brought with her: the remainder of the goods (household) to be 
divided equally between ray two daughters Marther (Martha) and Sarah, 
with £6 13s. 4d. to be paid to each of them by my two sons, within three 
years after my decease. All my real estate in Bradford or else where to 
my sons, in equal division. To my three daughters Abigail, Phebe and 
Elizabeth, five shillings apiece, with what they have already had, to be 
paid at my decease. Also, to the heirs of my daughter, Mary Bussel, 
deceased, the sum of five shillings apiece, to be paid at my decease. My 
two sons, John and Thomas, are appointed Executors " [Clerk of Pro-

wife, above named, a comfortable support in sickness and health during 
her life, and a decent burial at death, in case she dies my widow."

The circumstances of his early training were unfavorable, as is often 
the case, his father soon marrying again and having numerous other chil- 
dren. He therefore became a sort of Ishmael in the world, and no descen- 
dant of his can ever arise to charge us with disrespect to his memory, if, 
for variety's sake, we venture a little episode at his expense, a^ related by 
Mr. Alfred Poor, genealogist, of Salem, Mass. ** He was very fond of ' the 
ardent,' but, like many others in the same situation, did not abound in 
means for gratifying his appetite. One ingenious device of his, liowever, 
was this : he would go to a country store with two bottles of the same size 
and shape, one in each side pocket of his slouched overcoa^^ — one filled 
with water and the other empty. Lurking in the back store for a while, 
he would watch his opportunity and slyly fill the empty bottle. On leav- 
ing the premises, if detected, he would stoutly deny the theft at first ; but 
when hard pressed, would draw the bottle of water from his pocket and 
deliver it, with great apparent disgust, to the storekeeper, exclaiming, 
* Here, take your miserable rum ; I don't ^ant it ! ' With real satisfaction 
the trader would turn its contents into his cask, thinking that so much was 
saved from his thievish customer, while William, with the genuine article, 
would coolly make his escape 1 " 

45. Ebenezer2 [9] (SamueU), learned a different trade from 
either of his older brothers, — that of a blacksmith, — and prob- 
ably in the neighboring village of Haverhill, where we find him, 
" Jan. 7, 1748" (by mistake on the county records, " 1744," as he 
was then a minor) receiving, by deed from " agents of the town of 
Haverhill, for £33 10s. (N. T. in hand before), a certain piece of 
parsonage land, on Merrimack River, and containing about 8 acres " ; 
*' Mar. 6, 1748," just after his first marriage, he buys of Edmund 
Mooers, for '" £750, O. T., a lott of land with a dwelling house 
there on" ; "Apr. 7, 1748," with " Abigail his wife," he conveys to 
" William Greenleaf, for £220, 0. T., one half ^q acre ux Ho-verhill,

formerly of the parsonage land so called " ; and " Apr. 17, 1749," 
to Samuel White, for " £75, about J of an acre, at a place 
commonly known by the name of the River Parsonage Lots." 
He must have received a dowry by his wife, or else have worked 
quite successfully at his trade before 1748, since the amount re-, 
ceived from his father's estate by will at " twenty-one years of 
age," could only have helped him to the first or parsonage purchase 
(above), out of which the two last deeds show that he was making 
what would be called, in these days, a " handsome speculation," 
while reserving the second purchase for his own homestead. Eight 
other deeds are found conveyijig real estate in Haverhill to him, 
and eleven others, from him to others, also in Haverhill, and all 
prior to 1784, showing that his business relations were quite ex- 
tensive in that place. The following also marks the time of his 
purchasing the estate, afterwards given to his son Samuel [54] in 
Hollis : " Feb. 5, 1777," Ebenezer and Thomas Jaquith and wives 
(their marks), " to Ebenezer Runels, for £666 18s. 4d. 
255 acres of land partly in Hollis, N. H., and partly in Dun- 
stable, Mass." .As a blacksmith in Haverhill, he had, for the 
times, a large establishment, devoting himself mainly to the over- 
sight of his numerous employes. Was engaged considerably in 
the ironing of vessels, and was also partner in a ship-building 
interest at Newburyport, according to tradition among the 
descendants of his oldest son in Maine. His residence in 
Haverhill was situated on the present Washington Square ; 
house, where now the Lafayette and Washington Blocks, with 
garden in rear and extending east to the Little River ; shop, 
opposite the house, in rear of the present Christian Baptist 
Meeting-house. He m., 1st, Abigail Sollis, of Beverly, 1747. 
She d. Oct. 3, 1765, and the next year he m., 2d, Hannah Smith, 
of HaverhiU? who was b. May 81, 1742, in H., and there d. Mar. 
29, 1814, aged 72. The writer has a copy of his Will, dated Feb. 
10, 1795, agreeing with the Essex Prob. Recs. ; abstract as fol- 
lows : — 

** I give unto my oldest son, Benjamin, £10 lawfUl money, to be paid out 
of my estate in three years. To Stephen, £15, ditto, in two years. To 
my soHy Ebenezer^ 8 children, Ebenezer and Abigail, £20 each. To my 
daughter, Mary Ayer, £5, in one year. To my daughter, Abigail Hagget, 
one feather bed, one mahogany case of drawers, and £10, In two years. 
I give to Samuel 40 shillings, and require him to pay to his mother 30 shil- 
lings yearly, during her natural life." [This in consideration of the Hollis 
property which he had previously received ] " To Nathaniel, £60, to he 
paid in two years. To Daniel and Ebenezer, equally, one half the house 
and garden I now possess. To Hannah, £30, in one year after my decease. 
To Thomas, a piece of land in Haverhill, with house thereon, in which he 
now lives. To Daniel and Thomas, equally, the shop, shop lot and tools, 
ordering them to pay Stephen 60 shillings each, within two years. Finally, 
to ray wife, Hannah, and my son Thomas, jointly, all other property in 
Haverhill, making them Executors of my will, and ordering them to raise 
money as needed, by the sale of my Pepperell farm (so called), dividing 
the balance equally among all my children." 

Account of Executors was rendered " Dec. 14, 1795." Prop- 
erty prized, in all, " at J4,632.73," including his " Pepperell farm

THIRD GENEEATION. 



62. Stephen^ [11] (Stephen^, SamueP), m. Hannah Pearl, of 
Boxford, April 11, 1754. As appears from the following and one 
other deed, he inherited and occupied, as a farmer, his father's real 
estate in Boxford, adding to the same and selling from it : '* April 
13, 1763, Stephen Runnels of Boxford, yeoman, to James Lendall, 
for £20 148. 2cZ., a certain tract or piece of land in B., 4 J 
acres, more or less, being one half of what I bought of Daniel 
Wood." He d. probably in the summer of 1771, aged 42, as we 
have from the Essex Probate Recs. " Administration of the estate 
of Stephen Runnels, late of Boxford, deceased, granted to Hannah 
Runnels, who gave bonds with Samuel Runnels and Richard Pearl, 
this Sept. 23, 1771." Inventory presented Oct, 24, 1771. Real 
estate, £257 18«. ; personal property, £122 2^. 7J^d.: Total, 
£379 15«. 7^(1. His widow did not render her account as 
administratrix till "Mar. 2. 1779," the troublous times of the Rev- 
olution, and the absence of her oldest son no doubt preventing. 
At this latter date, " £42 " are added to the above figures as the 
" Increase " of his estate, bespeaking her good management. At 
the same time the guardianships of ''■ Eunice Runnels, a minor, 
aged 18," of " Billey, 16," and of " Hannah, 14," are granted to 
John Pearl ; also, of the younger children, " Phebe aged 12, Esther 
aged 10, and Sarah aged 8," granted to their mother. Commission- 
ers appointed to divide the property, Apr. 21, 1779 ; who made 
their report June 8, 1779. She probably d. late in the year 1789, 
as widow Hannah Runnels is among the tax-payers of that and 
previous years (but not afterwards) on the Boxford Records, where 
also are found the births of their children.

72. Esther^ [13] (Stephen^, SamueU), m. Moses Sargent, of 
Metliuen, Nov. 29, 1767. She was his second wife, and succeeded to 
the care of his five children by his former wife Elizabeth ; to these 
was added her only child. 

73. Asa (Sargent), b. Sept. 25, 1768 (Methuen Records). 

74. William^ [15] (Stephen^, Samuel^) ; m., 1st, Rebekah 
Foster, of Andover, Mass., 1771-2, and moved from North Ando- 
ver to Methuen in 1774. He had previously taken land in Lon- 
donderry, N. H., — conveyed to him, in company with Ebenezer 
Runnels, of Haverhill, in 1769, — of which his part, sixty acres, 
was deeded away in 1773. (Rockingham Records.) 

This shows that he may have contemplated settling in London- 
deiTy, with his brother Daniel [82]. He was in the Revolutionary 
war, — how long, cannot be ascertained. At Methuen again, 
"June 14, 1779,'* as under that date, "William Runnels, of Me- 
thuen, yeoman [deeded], to Jesse Tyler for £30 a piece of meadow 
in M., including some islands of upland lying therein." (Essex 
Records.) 

Tradition in the Messer family informs us that he was exposed 
to great privations in the army, suffering especially from hunger 
on a certain march, when " one day he picked up a piece of pork- 
rind and a pealed onion, supposed to have been dropped by a 
party of Indians along the road ; at first hid away his treasure, 
for fear his hungry companions might rob him of the scanty pro- 
vision, and afterwards ate it in a place of seclusion from the rest." 
This may have been on Col. B. Arnold's disastrous march through 
the wilderness to Quebec, in the fall of 1775. 

After the war, and prior to 1790, — as by six other deeds, — 
additions were made to his real estate in Methuen, of nearly one 
hundred acres. His 1st wife d. Nov. 20, 1808, aged 62, at 
Methuen. He m., 2d, Mrs. Olive Smith (formerly Messer), of 
Methuen, Dec. 26, 1809 ; who d. Sept. 8, 1837. 

He d. July 10, 1822, at Methuen ; is styled « Elder William 
Runnels " on his gravestone, and this epitaph is added : — 

" Though I have lived to eighty-two, 
God gives long life to very few ; 
Let none presume, then, on old age, 
But in religion now engage." 

His children — as per Town Records — were all b. in Methuen, 
except the oldest : —

82. Daniel' [16] (Stephen^, SamueU), had settled in London- 
derry, iN . H., as early as 1765, since he was sa'd, " June 20, 1765," 
to be " of Deny field, now resident in Londonderry, Joyner," and 
received by deed from James Karr, of Goffstown, " for £553 17/?., 
one seventh part of a certain tract of land lying in Plopkinton, 
on the north side of Contoocook River, 3303 acres." He made 
two other purchases in Londonderry in October of the same year, 
— called "Daniel Runnels of L., carpenter"; while two convey- 
ances of land to others, by himself and wife, in 1773 and 1774, are 
also recorded among the Rockingham deeds, at Exeter, N. H. He 
m. Hannah Spofford, Apr. 14, 1767, who was b. March 16, 1746, 
and d. in Derry. Jan. 23, 1829, aged 83. His homestead was one 
mile north of the centre meeting-house in Derry, not far from the 
celebrated Beaver Pond, and the spot where the first sermon was 
preached to the early settlers of Londonderry. It is now (1872) 
owned by his grandson, William Reynolds [284]. Parker's Hist, 
of Londonderry, p. 152, states that he was one of the undertakers 
of the work (with Joseph Morrison) of building the new meeting- 
house in the east parish, 1769. His military histoiy, during the 
Revolutionary war, is gathered as follows, chiefly from the " Adj. 
General's Report of New Hampshire," Vol. JI. "Dec. 2, 1775, 
General Sullivan, at Winter Hill, called for thirty-one companies 
of New Hampshire men (commonly called the ' six-weeks* men ') to 
take the place of the Connecticut troops who had left. Daniel 
Runnels, of Londonderry, was the captain of Co. 3 " (p. 278). 

Same account in the " New Hampshire Provincial Papers," to 
wit, that the "Committee of Safety, Dec. 2, 1775, ordered Daniel 
Runnels and fifteen others to enlist a company of sixty-one able- 
bodied men to serve in the Continental army under General 
Washington, and to join them immediately to General Sullivan's 
brigade." 

In April, 1776, he signed the "Association Test," with others of 
his fellow-townsmen. September of the same year, two more regi- 
ments were raised to reinforce the Continental army in New York. 
Col. Thomas Tash commanded the second regiment, and " Daniel 
Runnels was captain of Co. 7, Sept. 26, 1776." He next appears 
as " Daniel Runnels, captain of Co. 1 in Col. Nichol's regiment," 
which went with Gen. Stark to Bennington. He was undoubtedly 
engaged in that renowned battle, his regiment being " sent by a 
circuitous route to gain the rear of the left wing of the enemy," 
Aug. 16, 1777. Parker's History confirms this, informing us that 
"a company of seventy volunteers" (Co. 1 above) "was enlisted 
in Londonderry, July 20, 1777 " ; that it was " commanded by Capt. 
Daniel Reynolds, and was in the battle of Bennington." Oct. 18, 
1777, he was ordered to pay oflT the roll of his company. General 
Whipple had command of a New-Hampshire brigade sent to ope-

rate against the British under G-en. Sullivan, in Rhode Island, in 
the summer of 1778. In this brigade, " Daniel Reynolds was cap- 
tain of Co. 3, Col. Peabody's regiment." Here this spelling of the 
name appears for the first time in the military history of New 
Hampshire ; though it is afterwards ordered that " Capt. Daniel 
Runnels be paid as an ofl5cer in Col. Stephen Peabody's regiment, 
raised for the defence of Rhode Island, April 28, 1778." 

In the spring of 1779, a regiment was ordered from New Hamp- 
shire for service in Rhode Island under Col. Hercules Mooney, of 
Lee, in which " Daniel Reynolds was captain of Co. 2," at first, 
"May 29, 1779" ; and afterwards ** Major" of the same regiment, 
as under dates of " Sept. 4 and 18, 1779." 

One regiment only, and the last, for the Revolutionary struggle, 
was raised in New Hampshire in 1781, "the prospect of peace 
relaxing military operations." Of this, " Daniel Reynolds " was 
'* Colonel," A " note " here, in the military history, remarks (Adj. 
General's Report, Vol. II, p. 304), that "he had served his coun- 
try on various occasions," as above ; that " his name was often 
written Runnels, and hence there has arisen some doubt as to the 
offices held by him ; but there is now no doubt that Capt D. Run- 
nels and Col. D. Reynolds are one and the same man, from Lon- 
donderry." Whether the change of his patronjrmic was first made 
in 1 778 by himself, or by the regimental clerk, it seems to have 
been adopted by him about that time, and to have been followed, 
generally, by his townsmen and his descendants ever since. 

We may add that but few Revolutionary records are more praise- 
worthy than his. His gradual growth in acknowledged merit and 
distinction as an officer, and his perseverance to the end, give him a 
high rank among the revolutionary soldiers of New Hampshire. 

Col. Reynolds was honored by his town by being elected first 
representative to the General Court of New Hampshire, 1780-84 
inclusive, also in 1 786 and 1 788. He was one of the selectmen of 
Londonderry in 1785, 1787, 1789-92 inclusive, and in 1794. He

war, occupied the same house and homestead in Boxford, and are 
named as joint purchasers of real estate in six deeds before 1772, 
" Samuel Runnels and Samuel Runnels, jun., both of Boxford," 
with " gentleman " attached to the former, and '' yeoman " to the 
latter, or " husbandmen " to both. " Behold, how good and how 
pleasant it is for " father and son thus " to dwell together in unity ! " 
*' Oct. 28, 1,764," they bought of Stephen Merrill, for £20, " a cer- 
tain parcel of flatts and crick grass, laying in Newbury, and known 
by the name of Dole's Banks," thus adding to the purchase of their 
father and grandfather in that vicinity; but they seem to have 
enlarged their estate far more in Bradford than elsewhere, probably 
near the " old place," making, among other purchases, *' June 20, 
1769," *'a certain measurage or tract of land lying in Bradford, 
commonly known by the name of Dismal Hole^ containing about 
six acres of woodland, for £63 16s.," to which, three years later, 
four and one half acres were added for £26 7«., '' near a place 
known by the name of Dismal Ball" 

The following reminiscence of his service in the Fi'ench war is 
handed down by tradition from his own lips, substantially. He 
*' was on duty with his fellow-soldiers," probably in the vicinity of 
Lake George, N. Y. (Gen. Johnson vs. Dieskau, 1755), when ••' the 
French made a sudden attack upon the British troops ; and the 
latter, being few in number at that point, fell back behind a breast- 
work of fallen trees. There they stood their ground under a brisk 
fire from the enemy, who made desperate and long-continued efforts 
to dislodge them, but were finally obliged to retire. After the ac- 
tion," as he used to say, " he could cover with his two hands " 
{spread as to the fingers, no doubt) " no less than forty ball-holes 
in the log by which his own head had been protected." After this 
service, he m. Joanna Platts, of Bradford, Mar. 14 (published 
Feb. 26), 1757. She d. in Boxford, " Dec. 16, 1809, aged 75," and 
was hence b. in 1734, probably a daughter of "Jonas Platts," a 
part of whose estate, *' ten acres in Bradford," they deeded " to N. 
Wallingford, for £114 13s. 4d., Jan. 17, 1773." 

••' Mar. 12, 1790," he conveyed a lot of land in Concord, N. H., 
to William Stickney, for £43 Is, 6d., — the '* home lot," doubtless, 
near Concord Street, on which his grandfather " erected a house in 
1731." 

Having received a lieutenant's commission, he served in the 
revolutionary war as a " minute man," the gun which ' he used in 
that capacity being still in the possession of his great-grandson, 
Cyrus Runnels, of Concord, marked " 1757," and originally more 
than six feet in length ! 

Hence the Boxford Records give his name as Lieut, Samuel Run- 
nels, both in the '* tax-lists" from 1784 onwards, and among the 
"families." His taxes in 1790 were, in the column of " Heads" 
^two in number), " 5-6" ; " Real," " 9-11 " ; " Personal," " 3-6 " ; 
probably shillings and pence ; and if so, his taxes were remarkably 
low. Yet he seems to have become somewhat reduced in pecuniary 
affairs, as his "Inventory," rendered April 30, 1810, was only

120. Thomas3 [25] (Job9, SamuelO, m. " liis wife Phebe," in 
Bradford, about '763. '* Thomas Runnels owned covenant, but 
came not to the Lord's table, Nov. 18, 1764." This seems to have 
been in order to have his first child baptized. As the bu'th of his 
second daughter is taken from the Methuen Records, we infer that 
he had moved to that town pnor to 1 771. He there lived till after 
*' March 3, 1777," as under that date we have (Rockingham deeds), 
*' I. Young, conveying land in Salem, N. H., to Thomas Runnels, 
of MethuenJ' He had removed to Salem, " Mar. 21, 1781," as we 
then find " Edward Patee " deeding " land to Thomas R. of 6aZem "; 
and that he was living and still owning land in Methuen as late as 
1785, is implied in one of the deeds of William [74]. 

Nothing further can be ascertained respecting him or his daugh- 
ters. It is presumed that they lefb no families ; hence, in the want 
of sons, his branch, as well as his father's, in the Runnels name, 
becomes extinct. Children : —

123. Benjamin^ [46] (Ebenezer^, SamueU), having learned the 
blacksmith's trade of his father, and m. Hephzibah (or " Hipsey ") 
Bradley, of fciaverhill, in 1768, he emigrated the next year to 
the " District of Maine," and first settled at Pondleborough, on the 
Kennebec. Removing up the river two or three years later, he was 
among the first settlers of what is now Augusta, then a wilderness, 
and is said to have owned one hundred acres on the site of the 
present city, which he afterwards sold for two dollars per acre ! 
While there he was drafted into the revolutionary army about 1776, 
and remained '* not more than two years." Served as a blacksmith 
with the army in New York, and was employed in forging the chain 
which was thrown across the Hudson to keep British ships from 
going up the river. Meanwhile his family remained at Augusta 
(the Indian Cushnoe), greatly annoj^ed by their savage neighbors. 
On one occasion, seven Indians came to their house, ransacked it, 
and spent the night, to the terror of his wife and children. She 
always said her life was spared only by the resolute intervention of 
a squaw, who was one of the company, in her behalf. Preferring

the country about Ticonic Falls, farther up the river, he moved 
thither for his final settlement, 1778. Added to his trade the 
business of a lumberman and speculator. Erected the first framed 
house on the site of Waterville village, and about the year 1793, 
built a small vessel, — claimed to be the first launched on the upper 
Kennebec, — and run it to Augusta, twenty miles, before being 
rigged. He also built the first mill in Waterville, and, subse- 
quently, the first at Pittsfield, up the Sebasticook. Was the first 
representative from the combined towns of Waterville and Winslow 
to Boston, and became the possessor of so much land in Winslow, 
where he lived, as to obtain the sobriquet of "King Runnels." 
But he was afterwards much reduced in property by the failure of 
one Shepard, an English contractor, — after whom Shepard's wharf, 
in Hallowell, is named, — and by other misfortunes, especially by 
losing a contract of his own for fuiiiishing masts to be sent to 
England. The timbers were cut too short, in attempting to lade 
them upon the short vessels sent to transport them. With his 
affairs in a very unsettled state, he d. suddenly, of apoplexy, in 
Winslow, June 22, 1802, aged 64. His wife had d. Dec. 25, i798. 
The beautiful spot selected by her for a family burial-place, on the 
east bank of the Kennebec, a mile or two above Waterville, is now 
neglected and almost forgotten ; the gravestones are crumbling to 
dust, and a thrifty young cedar is drawing its nourishment ftom 
the ashes of the departed ; while the majestic river, still flowing 
near at hand, and roaring from the distance, as of old, serves only 
to intensify the reflection, so readily suggested, that of all human 
works and devices upon earth, " there is none abiding." Children :

126. Mary [380], b. May, 1770, in Pondleborough, Me.

133. Ebenezer3 [47] (Ebenezer^, SamueU). He "followed 
the sea and d. in the West Indies, July, 1774," aged 24. Had m. 
and " left two children in this country," who were living, according 
to their grandfather's will, in Feb. 1795, but are supposed soon 
after to have died without issue.

town, ]M[ar. and April, 1775 " ; also in the " List of eight months' 
service men, raised immediately after the battle of Lexington, 1st 
Co.," ninet3'^-four in all, thus early commencing his Revolutionary

career. Afterwards, his name appears, p. 391, among '^ those who 
lost guns at the battle of Bunker Hill, from Haverhill," twenty-oue 
in number, — an evidence of hard fighting. Also, " Drafted for 
the Continental service, in 1775-6," p. 893. His brother, Nathaniel 
S. [56], used to say he was *' six years in the revolutionary war, a 
sergeant, and present at the surrender of Burgoyne." Others make 
his time as a soldier but three or four years. In the New-Hamp- 
shire Provincial Records we have " Corporal Stephen Runnels, 
belonging to the Continental army," to whom the *' Treasurer is 
ordered to pay 40 shillings discount out of the taxes to be ac- 
counted for, out of his depreciation, Feb. 13, 1788." Hardly intel- 
ligible ; but the date favors the longer term of service. He was a 
blacksmith, like his father, and by reason of the latter's investment 
in Hollis, N. H., he changed his residence to that place in 1777, 
where also he became affianced to Chloe, dau. of Mo^es Thurston. 
Afterwards, when absent as a New-Hampshire soldier, he was ac- 
customed to send to Tier his wages, which she faithfully kept in her 
possession, intending to purchase her marriage outfit with the 
money. As the currency was depreciating, and likely soon to be 
worthless, she was advised by a friend, at one time, to lay it out in 
rye ; but she listened to no such suggestion, and when at last she 
came to " buy her furniture," was obliged to pay *' 67 for a white 
cream pitcher," and for other things in like proportion ! Haying 
m., as proposed, in 1782, they followed their brotlier-in-law — the 
Rev. Stephen Fuller, who m. Phebe Thurston — to Vershire, Vt. 
(1789), where he d. suddenly, July 22, 1798, aged 44. " He had 
a loving disposition and great muscular powers." She afterwards 
moved to Fletcher, Vt., but finally settled on the wild lands owned 
by her husband, in Topsham, Vt., and there d. Dec. 13, 1807, aged 
49. The five oldest children b. in Hollis ; the others in Vershire.

163. Sarah, b. Nov. 25, 1791, in Hillsborough; m., 1st, Enoch Howlitt, 
of Hillsboro'; m., 2d, Zabina Colburn. Child: — 
1. Zerah (Colburn), b. Jan. 13, 1832, in Saratoga, N. Y. He was 
named after his uncle, the celebrated arithmetician. His 
father d. a few years after his birth, and his mother returned 
to Hillsborough, N. H., where, during his boyhood, he earned 
his living on a farm, proving himself an insatiable reader, but 
enjoying no means for an early education besides a few months* 
attendance at a district school, and a short clerkship in a fac- 
t<»ry. He first entered a machine shop in Lowell, Mass., April, 
1846 ; but " his professional career commenced on the Concord 
railroad, under the late Charles Minot, then its manager, who 
was attracted by the brightness and practical ideas of this sin- 
gular youth. In a few months he had mastered the anatomy 
and physiology of the locomotive engine, tabulated the dimen- 
sions and proportions of those under his observation, and 
published a small, but excellent and still useful, treatise on the 
subject." The locomotive was ever after his chief study. Was 
superintendent of the works of Mr. Souther, in Boston, — 
for a few months of the Tredegar Works, at Richmond, Va., 
and for a year, or more, of the New Jersey locomotive works 
at Paterson, N. J., "during which engagement he made some 
improvements, still standard, in the machinery of freight 
engines." But he "early found that the literature of en- 
gineering was his true calling." His writings were various in 
scope, and vigorous in practical treatment. " On the locomo- 
tive, the steam-engine and boiler at large, steam navigation, 
bridges, railway works and mechanical engineering in general, 
he became a first-rate authority. His thoroughly practical 
education in the workshop, his extended observation of en- 
gineering works, his intimate acquaintance with professional 
literature, his remarkable quickness of comprehension, his 
more remarkable memory, and his mechanical talent and inborn 
engineering ideas, combined to give him a distinction that no 
engineer in the world will deny him, — the best general writer 
in his profession." In 1834, he started in New York the 
** Railroad Advocate," which he afterwards enlarged and en- 
titled the " American Engineer." He was commissioned, with 
his associate, Mr. A. L. Holley, by several railroad presidents, 
in the autumn of 1857, to visit Europe, and report upon the 
systems of railway management in use there. In 1858, he 
returned to London, began to write for the ** Engineer," and 
soon became its editor. In addition to his editorial labors, he 
wrote several pamphlets on boiler explosions, heat, etc., the 
originality of which attracted great attention. He received 
two medals for papers before the "Institution of Civil Engi- 
neers," one on "Iron Bridges," the other on "American 
Locomotives and Rolling Stock." He also served one year as 
president of the " Society of Civil Engineers." But the high 
tension which he always maintained upon his mental powers 
too early destroyed the balance of his over-wrought brain, 
and he d. soon after his last arrival in this country, April 20, 
1870, aged 38, under a cloud of temporary insanity, having 
accomplished more than most men In thrice as many years of 
active life. Had he early received the advantages of a sys- 
tematic and liberal education, it might have proved difficult 
to prescribe the limits to his usefulness or his fame. Extraor- 
dinary instances of his powers of memory are related. He 
could state exactly the height of the summit of every railway

of which reports had ever reached his eye, together with 
their leading gradients and other material features.- He was 
highly esteemed for his social traits, his amiability and kind- 
ness. While residing In London, he delighted to bestow 
valuable attention upon American engineers visiting England, 
by whom his memory is cherished with affection. He was m. 
and left one child, (1.) Sarah, now living with her mother in 
New York. (The above is an abstract of two published 
sketches of his life ; one of which, from the pen of Mr. HoUey,

205. Abigail^ [63] (Stephen^, Stephen^, Samuel^) ; m. Abel 
Gage, of Pelham, N. H., Jan. 13, 1780 ; d. Aug. 2, 182.s aged 70. 
She was truly a mother^ rightly guiding her housenold, and wisely 
training her children. Her advice and assistance were much 
sought for in her neighborhood, in cases of sickness and difficulty. 
Her husband was b. in Pelham, Nov. 18, 1755, — the da}^ of the 
jireat eai*thquake, — and d. Sept. 3, 1846, in his 91st year. He 
served as a soldier in the Revolutionary war, during the year 1776, 
for which service he received a pension the last twenty-eight years 
of his life. Kept school several seasons in different parts of the 
town, in private houses, before school-houses were built, and when 
*' reading, writing, and ciphering " were the only brauches taught. 
He was active in all his employments, and possessed the confidence 
of his fellow-townsmen in so large a degree that he was elected as 
selectman more than half the years between thirty and sixty of his 
own age. Was also a devoted member of the church to which he 
belonged, and held the office of deacon about forty-five years, till 
the infirmities of age admonished him to resign. Having heard 
that granite ledges had been riven in pieces with wedges, in some 
distant locality, he resolved to try the experiment on his own farm, 
which abounded in granite, and was surprised at his success. His 
tools were of a primeval pattern, like the material on which he 
wi'ought ; but it- is claimed that he was the first in this part of the 
country to attempt stone quarrying, and to start that important 
business, which has reached such a height in Concord, N. H., 
Quincy, Mass., and other places. The centre meeting-house in 
Dracut, built about 1782, and the present town-house in Pelham, as 
it was originally, afford specimens of his earliest work. A ten- 
dency to mechanical pursuits, a taste for vocal and instrumental 
music, and a marked religious character, are noticed in this family, 
through their several generations. The parents, all the children, 
who lived to mature age, and a large majority of the grandchildren, 
have professed their faith in Christ. Children, all b. in Pelham : —

records of New Hampshire, first under the head of " Losses at the 
Battle of Char lestown, June 17, 1775," — " P2nos Runnels, Capt. 
Moore's Co, Stark's regiment, £1 17 s, 6fZ.," — which losses were 
made up to the soldiers out of the State treasury. Again, on the 
"Payroll of Capt. Henry Dearborn's Co., Col. B. Arnold's De- 
tachment," we have the signed receipt of " Enos Runnels, of Box- 
ford, Joiner," to " Two months' pay, £4, Sept. 18, 1775 " This 
proves that his enlistment, under Arnold, must have occurred in 
July, or immediately after his release from the Charlestown cam- 
paign (see below). Two deeds of his, "Apr. 20, 1779," forcibly 
suggest that sacrifice of home and property, — a portion, at least, 
of his paternal acres, — which he felt obliged to make, in order 
that he might serve his country faithfully to the last ; while iiis 
reception at home, on a furlough, — probably just before this date, 
— afforded an incident of tender interest, as an absence of nearly 
four years, his hardships and exposure, and the terrible disease, 
small-pox, from which he suffered at Quebec, had left him in dis- 
guise, so that his mother at first supposed he was a stranger ^ while 
drinking at the family well in the door-3'ard ! His final term of 
service expired not long before his marriage to Sarah Simmons, of 
Boxford, " published Feb. 2, 1782." He appears to have settled 
first, in Andover, where the birth dates of his two oldest children 
are found, as below ; the others upon the Boxford records, on which 
" Enos Runnels " is found for the first time among the '* Tax 
payers," in " 1785." Later in life. he changed the spelling of his 
name to " Reynolds," and this is retained by all his descendants. 
He held two commissions as " Ensign," the first signed by John 
Hancock, governor, June 17, 17^6; the second, for a special ser- 
vice of four months, in 1787, "suppressing the rebellion in the 
westeru counties," of which he used to speak as his '' Shay hunt- 
ing" ! He d. Aug. 11, 1845, in his 89th 3'^ear. His excellent wife 
survived him nearly ten years, and d. June 25, 1855. 

The following is extracted from the *' Boston Atlas " of Aug. 16, 
the *' Boston Post" of Aug. 21, and the '* Christian Register" of 
Aug. 30, 1845: — 

*' The life of this Revolutionary soldier was more than commonly 
eventful. His first engagement was at Bunker Hill. He was in 
Stark's regiment, and that portion of it that started from Medford 
early in the morning and reached Bunker Hill ' along in the fore- 
noon.^ It marched to the^ redoubt, which was then full. Orders 
were given for it to take post on the left when the rail fence was 
commenced, and Mr. Reynolds aided in making it. Here he fought 
during the battle." . . . *' His next service was as a volunteer in the 
expedition of Arnold to Quebec. He encountered the full hard- 
ships of that perilous enterprise. The night of his keenest suffer- 
ings on an island in the river was bitterl}'^ remembered. For 
thirty-three days on this march he did not sleep in dry clothes." 
"In December (1775), he was taken prisoner at the fall of Mont- 
gomery, and remained in the hands of the British till the succeed- 
ing October, though he always spoke with touching gratitude of 



PART I. — FOURTH GENERATION. 37 

Gen. Carleton for his humanity towards himself and fellow-pris- 
oners. Afterwards enlisting for three years, he served in the 
northern army of Gen. Schuyler. Again taken prisoner by the 
Indians, and delivered to the British, he was lodged at Ticonderoga, 
but soon executed a daring plan of escape, with one or two others, 
swam the lake, rejoined the army under Gates, and saw Burgoyne 
surrender at Saratoga At the time of Arnold's treachery he was 
stationed at West Point, and performed guard duty in the same 
room with Maj. Andre on the last night of his life." " The war 
being over, Mr. Reynolds devoted himself to the labors of peace. 
He struggled manfully through all the trials that awaited the brave 
men of the Revolution." '* He was first vice-president of the whig 
State convention in Faneuil Hall, Sept. 1842." " He was emphat- 
ically a good man and a practical Christian. Even the spirit of 
detraction never dared to utter an insinuation against his integrity 
of character or purity of purpose. It was his constant aim to make 
his life conform to the precepts of the gospel. His bodily strength 
was for several years prostrated by paralysis, but his mind was 
clear and his faith unshaken to the last. Through the intense suf- 
ferings of a six months' illness, he was never heard to utter a word 
of impatience ; and a few hours before his death, he said, with 
earnestness, ' It is so, it is so ! * in response to the lines, — 

' Jesus can make a dying bed 
Feel soft as downy pillows are.* ** 

" His decease left a melancholy void in the family, of which he 
was the head, and the object of love and veneration ; in the town, 
of which he was a valued citizen ; in the neighborhood, which he 
enlivened by his hospitality, and instructed by his wisdom and 
historic lore ; and in the church, of which he was an exemplary 
member." 

His granddaughter [636], in Texas, from amid scenes of pecu- 
liar national trial, pays the following tribute, — under date of 
Dec. 4, 1870,—- 

"TO THE DEPARTED HERO* 

** Peace be to thee, dear honored sire ; 
Calmly tliou sleepest la thy narrow home. 
Bright gem in freedom's starry crown. 
Thy mission here on earth is done; 
Thy children's children speak thy fame, 
Wafting thy praise on wings of love, 
To freedom's children, ever sung, 
And generations yet nnborn.**

year, " for £30, an additional six-acre lot in Concord." 

Accordingljs having served in the Revolutionary war as a Mas- 
sachusetts soldier, he m. Joanna Farnum, of Andover, Mass., in 
1780 or '81 (1779 says one), and settled on one of the above lots, 
probably in the spring of 1781, being the second to make a clearing 
in that part of Concord. It is related that the same season he one 
day stuck a willow twig into the ground near his rude tenement, 
which he had used as a riding-stick from near the present village 
of West Concord. It grew into a wide-spreading tree, affording a 
delightful shade, till his children found it necessary to cut it down 
in the fall of 1871 ; when the stump, after a growth of ninety years, 
was found to measure, for its greatest diameter, seven feet and four 
inches ! He appears, by the Rockingham records, to have sold one 
of his eighty-acre lots to Charles Emer}'-, *' Dec. 31, 1807." His

costing five dollars per bushel, and the clothing of himself and 
family, taken from New England, when worn out, was in part sub- 
stituted by buckskin. In 1821 and 1822, money was so scarce 
that he could realize onl}'^ twenty-flve cents a day for labor, and 
wheat, hauled to a distance of forty miles, he sold at twenty-five 
cents per bushel, sometimes for unbleached cotton cloth at fifty 
cents a yard ! Amid such hardships and privations, his farm was 
successfully cleared up ; but the completion of the Ohio canal, in 
1832, made his circumstances easier, and he began to accumulate 
property. He took great interest in the educational enterprises of 
the new settlement. Having previously experienced religion, in 
1827, under the preaching of a Baptist missionary from Connecti- 
cut, he became a faithful, devoted Christian, and was afterwards 
enabled to build a house, entirely with his own means, which was 
dedicated to the service of God. Benevolent and kind-hearted, he

throne of grace, being fervently engaged, was called into eternity, 
and, without struggle or groan, resigned his spirit to God who gave 
it, in his 80th year" (Hollis Cemetery). Thrown entirely upon 
his own resources in early life, he had bound himself to a Mr, 
Melvin, of Cambridge, Vt., till the age of 21, but bought the re- 
mainder of his time, the year before, for the purpose of studying 
with his uncle. Rev. Stephen Fuller, of Vershire. Thus fitting 
himself to teach school, he engaged in that employment, for sev- 
eral winters, in Cambridge, Vt., Haverhill, Mass., and other places. 
In 1816, he went into business at Cambridge Borough, with Mr. 
Trowbridge, and there continued as a successful merchant, under 
the firms of " Trowbridge & Runnels," " Runnels & Hunt," and 
"• Runnels & Willey," for about ten years. Was the leading busi- 
ness man in the place, and did much for its welfare, especially in 
his efforts to build the Congregational meeting-house, in 1825.

of mind and heart. We extract from a little Yolume entitled 
"Stray Leaves," published in 1867 (pp. 31-2), this beautiftil 
"Birth-Day" tribute to her aunt, Matilda Barker [218], in 1864. 
Its allusions, as verified by the foregoing records, make it most 
an appropriate close to this generation of her grandfather's 
family : — 

" A greeting fronH;he homestead 
Is sent to you this day, 
To remind you that we *re near in thought. 
Though we seem so far away. 

* • . • 

" But not to these few hours alone 
Are all our thoughts confined. 
For they are flying far through air, 
* For thoughts are free as wind. 

. • . • 

" At seventeen hundred eighty-seven, 
We see them pause with care ; 
For there they find a date is given 
That marks a day most fair.

** For at that time one precious gem 
To a golden chain was given. 
That, when completed, numbered twelve, 
But soon its links were riven. 

'< And still this glittering gem shines on, 
In sunshine and in shade ; 
And many a heart/ by its bright light, 
Is warm and happy made. 

** But He who gave its lustre rare, 
And keeps it still undimmed. 
Will place it in a brighter chain, 
And take it back to him."

1870, aged 12. The following lines, composed by **M. H. C," 
of West Boxford, soon after her death, will touch a tender chord 
in many hearts. The writer was probably her aunt [660] ; and 
the person addressed in the third line, the aunt at whose house 
she died : — 

** * Kiss me, mother, I am going 

Where the sick and weary rest ; 
Kiss me, Katie, raise me higher. 
Lay my head upon thy breast. 

" * No, I fear not the dark river, — 
Jesus passed its gloom before ; 
Now I leave you : He will take me 
O'er to yonder shining shore.' 

** And thus sweetly, gently passed she 
From our weeping gaze away ; 
Can we doubt her loving welcome 
To the realms of endless day ? 

*' O, be trustftil I Do not question 
Why, of all, the dearest go; 
When we reach those blessed mansions 
All these mysteries we shall know. 
• • . • . 

** Only through His grace to strengthen, 
Can we ever hope to win ; 
Only cleansed in that dear fountain. 
Can we hope to * enter in.'

679. Alfreds [283], (Stephen*, DanieP, Stephen^, Samiieli), 
was a graduate of Dartmouth College, in 1844, and had nearly 
finished his course. at the Theological Seminary, Andover, Mass., 
when loss of health, and especially of sight, by a severe affection 
of the eyes, compelled him to abandon his studies and all hopes of 
laboring for Christ in the profession of his choice. Retiring to 
Derry, he took possession of the old homestead, and m. Maria 
Louisa Cushing, of Scituate, Mass., Nov. 26, 1854 (Dec. 15, 1852). 
She d. Oct. 15, 1857, aged 33. On her gravestone : " I shall be 
satisfied when I awake with thy likeness." He d. of consumption. 
Mar. 25, 1861, aged 49. His disappointment in not being permit- 
ted to serve his Master in the gospel ministry, seems largely to 
have influenced him in the making of his Will, which is found, for 
substance, as follows, in the Rockingham Probate Records, dated 
*»Feb. 4, 1861": — 

" He bequeaths to his brother Stephen Reynolds certain portions of real 
estate and $200 ; to Mary A. Taylor, wife of Robert Taylor, of South Bos- 
ton, g<100 ; to Sarah Moore, wife of George Moore, 2d, $26 ; to his sister 
Ellen Kent, wife of Richard Kent, Jr., $26 ; to his nephew Edward P. Rey- 
nolds, $100, against be is twenty-flve years of a^je, or, in case he dies, to 
the American Board C. F. M. ; to the last named Board, for Foreign Mis- 
sions, $300; to the American Home Missionary Society, $800; to the 






72 RUNNELS AND REYNOLDS MEMORIALS. 

American Education Society, $200; to the American and Foreign Christian 
Union, $100. He wills his pew in Derry meeting-house, No. 84, to his 
brother Stephen ; a good set of gravestones to his mother's grave, and the 
residue of his property, after all payments and just debts discharged, to the 
above societies in proportion to bequests." 

He seems thus earnestly to have desired that promotion of the 
cause of Christian truth by means of his property, after death, 
which he could not secure by personal labor and sacrifice, accord- 
ing to his intentions, during his earthly life.

years, were under his instruction, among whom were Samuel B. 
Curtis, William S. Kosecranz (both generals in the late war), 
Royal T. Wheeler, for many years a judge in Texas, and others 
who have since proved men of eminence. He was licensed to 
preach in 1836, and has exercised that vocation as opportunities 
occurred, though never as a settled pastor. Having chiefly resided 
as a farmer, near his father's original homestead, in Licking County, 
he has now become an extensive landholder, both in Ohio and Iowa.

mortal remains of his grandfather, buried forty years before. 
His parents can only add, in the beautiful lines of Bryant : — ^ 

'* Oh I we shall mourn him long, and miss 
His ready smile, his ready kiss ; 
The patter of his little fteet. 
Sweet frowns, and stammered phrases sweet j 
And graver looks, serene and high, 
A light of heaven in that young eye ; 
All these will haunt us, till the heart 
Shall ache and ache — and tears shall start. 
• *....• 

But he who now, from sight of men. 
We hide in earth, shall live again ; 
Shall break these clouds, a form of light, 
With nobler mien and clearer sight ; 
And in the eternal glory stand, 
With those who wait at God*s right hand."

Mrs. Taber was assistant editor of the ** Waverley Magazine" 
(published in Boston) at the time of her death, and for some 
years previously. Mr. Dow, In his tribute to her memory, in 
the ** Waverley " for Aug. 27, 1870, says : " Her education and 
her natural talents fitted her especially for this posliion. Her 
fine poetic taste, her love of order, and her knowledge and 
appreciation of the beauties of the best authors, rendered her 
a valuable acquisition to our editorial circle." The Rev. James 
B. Miles, of Charlestown, at her ftmeral, ascribed to her ** three 
traits which constitute a lovely woman **: ** a beauty and grace 
of exterior which is seldom s*^en ; " " intellectual endowments 
which were far above mediocrity," and ** a moral deportment 
and religious turn of mlud which gave a finish to all." She 
was the secretary of the ** Parker Fraternity Association," in 
Boston, and composed an ode which was sung at the anniver- 
sary of that society in 1870 ; the two last stanzas as follows : — 

*' But for all true and earnest souls 

Life wears a fadeless glow ; 
For those who seek, with patient hearts, 

Some fragrant blossoms grow ; 
The trust that faints and falters not 

Will find the blessed way — 
The golden rain of peace will fall 

On all who work and pray. 

'* Then let our hearts be glad to night ; 

Bright Pleasure, linger nigh; 
May happy meetings still be ours, 

As years come gliding by ; 
Let Hope Its smiling promise give, 

Be Faith our guiding star. 
Whose light shall lead us through the mists 

That veil the « gates ajar.* " 

As illustrating the controlling sentiment of her own life, we 
add another stanza from a poem written by her for a previous 
anniversary of the same association : — 

** Though we meet some * tangled crossings • 

In the mystic web of life. 
And our years, though few or many, 

May not all with joy be rife ; 
Let the seasons, hastening o'er us, 

Find our hearts still warm and true, 
Strong of faith and bravely earnest 

In the work we have to do 1 "

BEING A 



GENEALOGICAL MEMOIR 



OF 



JOB RUNELS, OR RUNALS, 



OF DURHAM, N". H., 



1713-1762. 



INTRODUCTION. 



Tradition in Durham, N. H., and vicinity has been uniform that 
the earliest Runels or Runals ancestors in that town, by the names 
of Job and John, were brothers. This is also confirmed by the 
impressions of their oldest descendants, elsewhere met in later 
years, though not the slightest connection can be established, in 
this way, between these brothers and any other families of kindred 
name in Maine or New Hampshire, as noticed in the Appendix. 
There are, however, these three points of presumptive evidence 
that the brothers Job and John were also the brothers of Samuel, 
of Bradford, Mass., whose genealogy has been given in Part I. 

1st. The existence of similar tradition or impressions, in both 
these Durham families, that their ancestors had '' an older brother, 
Samuel, in Bradford, Mass.," with concurrent tradition in some 
branches, of the family of Samuel, from individuals now passed 
away, that their ancestor had " two younger brothers who after- 
wards followed him from Nova Scotia to this country," and finally 
" settled in the New Hampshire colony." 

2d. The similarity of Christian names ; the names Job and John 
being favorite ones with the ancestor Samuel, as three of his 
children were thus called ; and Samuel, on the other hand, being 
frequently found in the families of Job and John. 

3d. The striking family resemblance which is found between 
many of the descendants of Samuel on the one hand, and of Job 
and John on the other. 

For these reasons, though our relationship could not be substan- 
tiated in a court of law, yet we, the Runnelses and Reynoldses of 
Part I would hereby extend a cordial greeting to those of Parts 11 
and in, as ^^ Kinsmen and cousins, all." 



FIRST GENERATION. 



1606. Job* is first mentioned in the Kockingham Deeds, '* Nov. 
13, 1713," when he is said to be " of Dover," and had conveyed to 
him from " Joseph Davice, for £28, 3 score acres of land lying on 
the West side of Wensday's brook." 

This is probably the time of his settling, as a young man, in the 
then " Oyster river Parish " of Dover, afterwards Durham, now 
Lee, N. H. His residence was on the now beautiful slope of land, 
near the above-mentioned brook, a little south of the " Mast road," 
and between that and the present house of Thomas Chesley, where 
a solitary bam was standing in 1870. 

About the same time (1713), he m. his wife " Hannah," who is 
said to have joined the church at Durham, under the Rev. Hugh 
Adams, " May 5, 1723 " (see Hist, and Gen. Register, July, 1869). 

She was living as late as '* June 28, 1731," as under that date 
we have " Jobe Runels and Hannah," deeding " to John Bradford 
of Portsmouth, one third share of land in Rochester." She was 
also, more probably, the " Hannah Runnels," of Durham, men- 
tioned "Feb. 3, 1748-9," as deeding "to Joseph Smith, all her 
right to the estate of her grandfather, Robert Burnam " ; and if so, 
her maiden name may have been Hannah Burnam. 

"May 29, 1719," his original sixty acres seems to have been 
increased by " 30 acres more or less, in Oyster river, in ye township 
of Dover, in ye Province of New Hampshire," bought of " Naphalie 
Kincaid" ; and "Jan. 31, 1726-7," by ** a parcel of land scituate 
lying and being on 'ye south side of ye Mast path, against turtel 
pond, being the half of 60 acres," etc. 

On the earliest town records of Durham, soon after its incorpo- 
ration, " Mar. 18, 1733-4," we find a " Committee of freeholders" 
granting " to him his heirs and assigns forever, 25 acres of land" ; 
and at a meeting in the meeting-house at Durham Falls, same date, 
another (?) "Committee of fifteen ".is mentioned, "which was 
then chosen to divide the common and undivided lands as the maior 
part of them shall jjrant." " The names of the Committee are as 
foUoweth, Job Runals " heading the list. He was also the owner 
of landed property in other towns, as " Nov. 13, 1753," he deeded 
to Samuel Moore, of Canterbury, for £55, one home lot in the town 
of C, where we elsewhere learn he possessed an " original right.'* 



PART ri. — FIRST GENERATION. 121 

He was living " Dec. 2, 1 758," as he then conveyed to " Job Ranels 
Jun. husbandman, my son," " 100 acres of land, being all my home- 
stead estate, whereon I now dwell." " Job Bunalls Jun." is also 
mentioned in deeds of '' July 6, 1754," and '' Mar. 21, 1755" ; but 
"Oct. 22, 1762," '^Job Runells of Durham" bought of "Waldo 
Emerson of Wells, Me., for £60 lawful money of the Massachusetts 
Bay, a tract of land in Nottingham," and four days later, " Oct. 
26," " Job Runels " sold the same " to Aaron Hays, for £66 I " 
The nature of these two last transactions might lead us to ascribe 
them to the younger Job, in which case his father must have died 
before Oct. 22, 1762, so that the " Jun." had disappeared from his 
(the son's) name. If, however, they are ascribed to Job Runels, 
Sen. J he was evidently still alive and active in Oct. 1762, but must 
have d. between that time and "May 1, 1763," when " Jonathan 
Runels yeoman of Durham " deeded " to Joseph Sias for £100, 5 
acres of land, being Lott No. 25, which was proportioned unto my 
father. Job Runels, late of Durham deceased^ in that division called 
the North River Lotts." The probable year of his birth was 1685, 
in Nova Scotia (?) (see Introductions to Parts I and II) ; and his 
corresponding age at death would be from 74 to 77, according to 
the times assumed above. No probate allusions to this ancestor are 
found, except the inventory of his estate, taken " Apr. 25, 1765." 

His children, by his wife Hannah, were born in Durham ; and, 
as nearly as can now be ascertained, in the years and order here 
assigned to their names : — 

1607. Job [1616], b. 1714. 

1608. Abigail (Nabby) [1620], b, 1717. 

1609. Susan [1627], b. 1719. 

1610. Enoch [1636], b. 1721. 

1611. Mary [1639], b..May 15, 1724; from an old Bible at North Con- 

way, N. H. 

1612. Jonathan [1646], b. 1726. 

1613. Hannah [1657], b. June 4, 1728. 

1614. Samubl [1661], b. 1730. 



SECOND GENERATION. 



1615. JoB^ [1607] (Jobi), inherited his father's home estate, 
as appears above, and is otherwise known to have occupied parts, 
at least, of the farms now owned in Lee, N. H. (1870), by Thomas 
Chesley and the widow of the late Hon. Jeremiah Smith. He 
afterwards divided his land between his two sons. Job and Miles, 
^ giving to the latter what is now occupied by Mrs. Smith, south of 
the road, as appears below. Quite early on the toWn records of 
Durham, we find him chosen one of five *' Searvars of High Way" ; 
and again "surveyor, 1762-3"; "fence viewer, 1758;" "tithing 
man, 1764." No later, on Durham records, than 1765, the Lee 
Parish being incorporated as a town, Jan. 16, 1766 ; after which, 
on the Lee records, we have " Lef. Job Runnals, Sessor," 1768 and 
1 7ei>. His wife's name was Sarah ; as " Apr. 29, 1771," " Job and 
Sainli R. of Lee," — his son Job not yet being married to Sarah 
Ellison, — deeded thirty-four acres of land to Jeremiah Bumam, 
of Durham ; also " July 4, 1774," " to Simeon Taylor for £15, one 
half of a hundred acre lot," — probably in Canterbury, — " of 
which Job Runels deceased was the original grantee." " July 5, 
1781," "Job Runals of Lee," to "John Colomy of New Durham," 
" all right to one hundred acres, in N. D." He probably died Apr. 
or May, 17?^ 5, aged 71, certainly between the two dates next given ; 
for, among the deeds, we find that " Job Runals of Lee," — then 
living, — conveyed " to Job R. Jun. certain tracts of tillage land 
on the Mast road, and one half his pasture," " Mar, 26, 1785;" 
and, same date, " to his son Miles, a tract of land called the upper 
field," — on the present Smith farm, as above, — " and half his 
pasture ; " while, also, from the Straflbrd Probate records we learn 
that " Sarah Runels widow of the late Job Runels " relinquished 
" all right in his estate to her two sons Job and Miles," " June 8, 
1785," to whom the administration of his estate was granted at the 
same time. His widow m. John Hill, of Nottingham, for her sec- 
ond husband. Proof of this appears a few years later (1790, or 
1793), when J. Hill conveys to Job Runnels " his right to dower 
of his wife Sarah, who was mother of the said Job and former 
wife of Job Runels late of Lee ; " whose children, there bom, 
were : —

1636. Enochs [1610J (Job^). Very little has been learned of 
him or his family, after the most persistent inquiries, except by 
way of inference from seven different registries of deeds in the 
county records, and from two or three allusions in the State mili- 
tary papers, Adj. Generars office, at Concord, N. H. He is said 
to have been a resident " of Lee," " Oct. 28, 1766," when he bought 
of " Henry J. Brown, for £38, 100 acres in the town of Canterbury, 
westerly side of Suncook river." He had settled in Canterbury, 
** Loudon Parish," *' May 14, 1779 ; " was still in Canterbury, 
"Sept. 9, 1785," when he deeded to Samuel Morrill " a certain 
tract of land in the parish of Loudon, belonging to the original 
right of Job Runnels"; is called "husbandman of Canterbury," 
" Nov. 22," same year, receiving from Job Runnels, his nephew, of 
Lee, " for £100, 100 acres, Lot No. 39, 2d division," of which, fifty 
acres (*' East half of one hundred acre lot No. 39 ") is conveyed 
to Samuel Weeks by " Enoch R. of Canterbury and Frances his 
wife," "Jan. 10, 1786," — thus only we ascertain his wife's first 
name; — 2indi finally, "Mar. 1, 1788," "to Obadiah Clough, for 
£37, 63 acres, in the parish of Northfield,** — now the town of 
that name, — giving us the probable location of his father's " 2d 
division lot," above mentioned. He is known to have left Canter- 
bury, probabl}^ soon after the last date, and to have settled and 
died in Canada ; whence his only daughter returned and paid a 
visit to some of her distant relatives in New Hampshire many 
years ago. Tradition, in Lee and vicinity, reports him to have 
been a very large man^ physically. His children were : —

1661. Samuel^ [1614] '(Job^). Less can be ascertained of hini 
than of his older brothers, from public records 'or the verbal testi- 
mony of descendants, though there remains but little doubt that he 
was a soldier in the old French war. He was probably the " Sam- 
uel Runnells, sentinel/* '* entered Apr. 30 ; discharged Oct. 27, 
1755," and belonging to Co. 6, in the regiment of six hundred men 
furnished that year by New Hampvshire for service against Crown 
Point (see Vol. II. "Military History of N. H.,'' p. 137). He is 
known to have resided chiefly in Lee, and it is the commc«i impres- 
sion of at least two aged people in that town (visited in 1871), that 
he moved thence to Peeling (now Woodstock), N. H., in its early 
settlement, and there d. soon after, about the year 1774, aged 54 ; 
also, that he was twice mamed, having " two or three children by 
his first wife, who d. soon after the birth of the youngest '* ; and 
that he " m., 2d, Love Tibbetts, just before moving to Peeling, by 
whom he had no children." " IS he was many years younger than 
he," b. about 1750 ; and having returned to Lee, there lived U> an 
advanced age, " bearing the name of Love Runnels as his widow." 
The names of his two youngest children, and the meagre facts re- 
specting them, are wholly on the authority of the venerable Miss- 
Joanna Farnham, formerly of Acton, Maine, and for naany years a 
resident at the " American House," Boston. All attempts to ob- 
tain information respecting the Drew family, if a family, from other 
sources, have proved abortive. Children : — 

1662. Samuel [1753], b. 1754, in Lee. 

1663. Hannah, b. about 1766; m. a Drew, who settled " back Jn the 

country," probably in Albany, N. H., and is remembered by our 
informant (see above) from the circumstance of hi» ** baviug 
no palate ! " 

1664. LovEY, b. about 1759 ; d. early in life. Rer name favors the sup- 

position that she might have been a child of bis second wife, 
but this is emphatically denied by our informaii1i» in L«e, a»

1771. Thomas^ [1677] (Job3, Job^, Job^), at the age of 18, was • '^^ ' 
apprenticed by his father to a tailor '" in a neighboring village," 
probably Dover. Being the youngest apprentice, he was kept by 
his master at outside drudgery, and was not permitted to *' learn 
the trade " according to agreement. He therefore left the place, ^ 
after a few months, and returned home. His father approved his 
course, and soon after accepted his proposition to give him his 
time, with two hundred dollars, and allow him to " paddle his own 
canoe." Thus, at nineteen years of age, he located in Portland, 
Me. (then a part of Massachusetts), rented a shop, hired a first- 
class foreman, took his seat on the bench, — still as master of the 
establishment, — and was soon found driving a popular trade, with 
several hands in his employ, at what would be called, in modern 
parlance, " a clothing emporium." He continued in this business, 
with increasing success, till after the war of 1812, near the close of 
which the tide of his affairs turned, and he became bankrupt by 
losses on^sea and land, though chiefly by " being surety" for some 
of his friends. He next resided in Durham, Me., a little more

FIFTH GENERATION. 



1924. William^ [1772] (Thomas^ Job3, Job^, Jobi), united 
with the Methodist Episcopal Cliurch when a child, in Maine, and 
felt, after moving to Indiana, an often-recurring impression to con- 
secrate himself to the gospel ministry. Resisting this positive call 
to duty for several years, he was at last " thrust into the Lord's 
vineyard " by the Rev. John Strange, in the spring of 1824, and 
placed, as third preacher, on the Madison circuit, Indiana. The 
next fall, he was admitted on trial in the old Ohio conference, then 
embracing nearly the whole State of Ohio, Michigan Territory, and 
portions of other States. Over much of this territory he travelled, 
as an itinerant minister, for nearly thirty consecutive years. In 
1828, when on the Delaware circuit in Michigan, he had thirty- 
three standing appointments each month. The two following years 
were spent at a station on the Sandusky bay. The glorious revival, 
'* beginning in the old cooper's shop," and the building of the first 
meeting-house in what is now the beautiful city of Sandusky, — 
with lumber brought in schooner from Detroit through a teriific 
gale, — afford some of the most pleasant personal reminiscences of 
his itinerant life. Appointed to the Tiffin station in 1837-8, he 
was pi;esiding elder of that district for the four following years ; 
was delegate from the North Ohio conference to the most memor- 
able of all the general conferences, at New York in 1844 ; but in 
the fall of this year, being thrown from his horse, and badly 
breaking his right limb, the idea of " location " was first suggested, 
though not finally realized, till 1851. From this time, for fifteen 
years, continuing his residence in Wellington, O., he preached to 
that one people over twelve hundred times, and saw the log-cabin 
meeting-house exchanged for one of the most tast}'^ and substantial 
brick church edifices in Northern Ohio ; that, too, in the face of 
the expressed opinion of another, that " a local preacher of the 
Methodist church is nothing but a cipher ! " (The above is substan- 
tially from the '* Cincinnati Christian Advocate" of Nov. 4, 1868.) 
In 1865, he removed to Cleveland, O., his present residence, 1872, 
where, at the age of 70, he is still able to work six days in the 
week for a living, and gladly to preach on the seventh, *' without 
money and without price." He m. Clarissa House, at Perkins, O.,

Bot they will meet together now.

BBINa A 



aENEALOGICAL MEMOIR 



OF 



JOHN RUNELS, or RUNALS, 



OF DURHAM, N. H., 



1718-1756. 



INTRODUCTION. 



It is quite certain, as shown in the former Introductions, that 
the ancestors Job and John, of Parts II and III, respectively, were 
brothers. There is also a tradition in one branch of the family of 
Samuel (Part I), that one of his two younger brothers who fol- 
lowed him to New England, '* remained near him for a time " in 
Bradford, or Boxford, Mass., " before finally settling in New 
Hampshire ; " that he '* lived on the other side of the pond " (from 
his brother's), and that he " spelled his name differently." 

It seems probable that Samuel [I] may have had a brother John, 
from the circumstance of his giving that name to two of his male 
children, [4] and [5], Part I, and that the two brothers may have 
been living near each other at the time of those children's births. 
We only know that John was several years later than his brother 
Job in settling at the Oyster River Parish, — then of Dover, — since 
Durham and Lee, N. H., and that he may have halted first in Exeter, 
on his way from Bradford, as seen by comparing the deeds below. 

No traditional connection whatever can be found between his 
and the Owen Runels family also of Exeter and Stratham, as men- 
tioned in the Appendix. The latter seems to have passed in its 
migrations from Stratham to Chester, N. H., and John Runals, on 
the supposition already given, could only be said to have crossed 
its track, at Exeter, moving in another direction, from Bradford, 
Mass., to Dover. 

Tradition among the descendants of John says that " his family 
originated in Ayrshire." This substantiates the supposed Scottish 
origin of John and of his older brother Job ; but it must refer to 
their origin prior to their grandfather's settling in Nova Scotia, on 
the supposition that they were also the brothers of Samuel. 



174 BUNNELS AND BEYNOLDS MEMORIALS. 

The broad Scotch orthography, "Runals," and even "Ronals" 
(as it may have been pronounced), instead of " Runels," prevailed 
in the family of John more than in that of Job ; so that many of 
his (John's) descendants, who did not change the spelling to 
" Reynolds," have retained that of " Runals," or " Runnals," even 
to the present. But, for the sake of uniformity, we make no 
change in the page headings, especially as '^ Runnels " is also 
found in several branches of this family, and even "Renels" 
appears in the two earliest deeds, as seen below. 



FIRST GENERATION. 



2129. JohnI. The earliest authentic record of this ancestor is 
found among *' Early Marriages in Durham " (New England His- 
torical and Genealogical Register for 1869), where he is said to 
have been married at Durham, N. H., " by the Rev. Hugh Adams, 
to Hannah Clark, Dec. 23, 1718." This was probably his second 
marriage, as shown below, and he was then a resident of Exeter, 
if the " John Renels of Exeter," mentioned in deed of " Aug. 26, 
1719," were the same as the ''John Renels of Dover," recorded 
"Oct. 20, 1721," as purchasing "from James Bassford, of Dover, 
for £12, a certain tract of land lying and being in Dover, between 
Lamperell river and Oyster river, near ye point, it being twenty 
acres which was originally granted in 1662 unto William Roberts." 

On this supposition^ he must have moved from Exeter to Oyster 
River — perhaps, back with his wife to her former home — be- 
tween 1719 and 1721, and became the possessor of his first real 
estate in Durham, as above described. He appears, from the fol- 
lowing, also to have owned and disposed of land, north of his 
brother Job's, and not far from the later " Randall place," in Lee ; 
"April 14, 1722, John Runals, of Dover," deeded "to William 
Rendal, for £30, ten acres, on south side of Mast Path, that goeth 
to Little River " ; and that his land in this part of the parish ex- 
tended Tiorth of the present road towards Wheelwright's pond, is 
proved from the fact that "Jan. 31, 1727-8," he deeded "to 
Joseph Jones ten acres, more or less, being in ye township of 
Dover, on ye north side of ye mast path that leads down to Oys- 
ter River Falls, between said path and Wheelwright's pond." 

The " Committee of Freeholders " of the new town of Durham 
granted to him, also, as to his brother Job, " twenty-five acres of 
the common lands," "Mar. 18, 1733-4" (Town Records); also 
other lands to himself in company with James Head, which he 
afterwards increased by buying out Head's share, "six and one 
fourth acres, for £12, Oct. 28, 1735 ;" and same amount at same 
price from "Richard Blanchard, July 12, 1736" (Rockingham 
Deeds) . 

His original purchase probably constituted his home in Durham, 
in the south part of what is now Lee. Perhaps tae following indi- 



176 BUNNE^iS AND REYNOLDS BiEBiORIALS. 

cates the same location : " Oct. 27, 1748, John Riinals of Durham" 
deeded " to Joseph R., tanner, of Dover, his son, for £30, the tract 
of land called the Hook, in Durham, south side of Lampereel river." 
His non-resident estate is shown by these two deeds, "Jan. 3, 
1726-7, John Rennels, and Hannah R., of Dover," " to John Pray, 
of Portsmouth, one third part of one full share of the town of 
Rochester, for £5;" and "Feb. 15, 1754, John Runnals, of Dur- 
ham, to M. Connor, of Kingston, one whole share in the town of 
Canterbury." 

The following copy and abstract of his will are appended, as the 
only sure guide to his family record : — 

"June 20, 1756, 1, John Ronals, of the town of Durham, in the Province 
of New Hampshire, in New England, being sick and weak in body, but of 
perfect memory and sound disposing mind (Thanks be given unto God 
therefore) ; Calling unto mind the mortality of my body and knowing that 
it is appointed for all men once to die ; do make and ordain this my last 
will and testament. That is to say, principally and first of all, I give and 
recommend my soul into the hands of God, That gave It ; and then my 
body to the dust by a decent Christian burial, at the discretion of my execu- 
tor, nothing doubting but at the general resurrection I shall receive the 
same again, by the mighty power of God ; and after my funeral charsjes 
defrayed [andj my just and honest debts paid, I will, devise and dispose of 
the remainder of my worldly estate, wherewith It hath pleased God to 
bless me with in this life, as follows. 

** To my beloved wife Hannah, two cows, my riding mare, and eight old 
sheep, and one third of all my other estate. To my son John, £50 old 
tennor to be paid four years after my decease. To my son Abraham, £60, 
old tenor, within six months after my decease. To my son William, £50, 
o. t. in 18 months. To my daughter Elizabeth Snell, £25 in 12 mos. To 
my son Joseph, all my farm or homestead estate, where I now live in the 
town of Durham ("widow's third excepted], immediately after my decease. 
To my daughter Sarah Bunker, £25 in two years. To my son Stephen, 
£50, when he gets to 14 years of age, and to be maintained out of my es- 
tate and live with his mother till then. To my son Solomon [same as last] 
also a gun. To my daughter Deliverance, £25 [on same conditions as 
two last] and all my household movables forever. To my son Winthrop 
[same as Stephen]. To Hannah Willee and Elizabeth Willee, £25 each, to 
be paid 12 months after my decease. Finally, my son Joseph Runals is 
ordained and constituted my sole executor in trust, to see this my last will 
and testament performed and fulfilled.*' (Rockingham Probate Records.) 

He must have died between June 20 and " Dec. 28, 1756," and 
if born, as supposed, in 1689, was about sixty-seven years of age. 
Under date last quoted, the inventory of his estate is reported, 
" taken by Hercules Mooney and Benjamin Drew,'* '* as shown unto 
us by Joseph R., of Dover, administrator," etc. '' Homestead 
place valued at £2000, old tenor ; House on said place, at £700 ; 
Barn, ditto, £300, and part of saw mill in Durham, £60." His son 
Joseph rendered his account as administrator of above estate, 
" Dec. 19, 1758," but did not himself finally settle it, as " adminis- 
tration of John R's estate, with his will annexed, is again granted to 
Lj'^dia Runnals, widow and administratrix of Joseph, Feb. 25, 1767." 

As the date of his son Abraham's birth is well authenticated 
among the latter's descendants, as given below, and as his son 



PABT m. — FIRST GENERATION. 177 

John was doubtless older than Abraham, it is safe to suimise that 
he — John, the father — was twice married, having the two first 
children, named in will, by his first wife, who died soon after, May 
23, 1718 ; while he m. Hannah Clark, as his second wife, at the first 
date given in this record, by whom the eight remaining children. 

As the Probate records tell us that " Deliverance, a minor child 
of John Eunals, was upwards of fourteea years of age, Dec. 13, 
1758," when *' Hannah R. was appointed her guardian and gave 
bonds," we assign to Deliverance the place of Stephen (in the will) ; 
otherwise, the order of the will is observed in the following list of 
his children, their births being assumed from the will itself where 
not obtained from other sources : — 

2130. John [2141], b. 1716 (first wife ( ?)). 

2131. Abraham [2142], b. May 28, 1718. 

2182. William [2156], b. 1721 (second wife (?)). 

2138. EuZABBTH [2168], b. 1724. 

2134. Joseph [2166], b. Jane 10, 1727. 

2135. Sarah [2175], b. Aq^. 4, 1781. 
2136., Hannah [2186], b. 1784. 
2137.' Dbliverancb, b. 1748. 

2188. Stephen, b. 1744. 

2139. Solomon, b. 1746. 

2140. WiNTHROP, b. 1749. The nnasnal coincidence is worthy of notice, 

that the four oldest children of his son Joseph, see [2166], were 
named after these four youngest of his own family. From this 
circumstance, and the fact that no fhrther trace of these four 
youngest can be obtained, it is presumed that they all died at 
an early age, and soon after the date of their father*s will, being 
then under fourteen years of age. 

12 



SECOND GENERATION. 



2141. JoHN^ [2130] ( Johni) , located in Barrington, N. H., about 
"Oct. 10, 1743," as we then find "John Ranells Jnn. of Durham, 
laborer," purchasing " 50 acres in B., from Thomas Snell, one half 
of 3d lot, 1st range." To this he added by purchase of "land in 
Barrington" from "George Sherburne of Portsmouth, for £20, 
Jan. 10, 1767." His first wife's name was Abigail, as seen by deed 
of conveyance dated "Apr. 20, 1767," in which we have "John 
Runels and Abigail his wife, of Barronton." She must have d., 
and he had m. Eleanor, for his second wife, before " Mar. 17, 1763," 
when we find " John and EUenor Runels of Barrington " deeding 
land in B., to John Mow, for £500. From other deeds we learn 
that he owned one " whole right of land in Loudon," made over by 
himself and Elenor his wife to "Peter Rawlings, Dec. 22, 1783"; 
was called " Capt, John Runnals, Aug. 13, 1784" ; increased his 
estate at two diflTerent times by some sixty acres, and did not die 
till after "June 7, 1785." He had, however, willed to his wife 
Eleanor, " Sept. 2, 1784, the use and improvement of his estate in 
Barrington until Isaac and Hannah Runnals," see [2199 and 2200], 
"children of Isaac, late of Barrington, come to lawful age* — his 
wife to bring up said children, — when one third falls to herself 
and two thirds to the children." His kindness to the grandchildren 
of his brother Abraham, and the interest both of himself and wiie 
in those children, as made orphans by the Revolutionary war, are 
worthy of commendation. His widow, though appointed executrix 
of his will, must have died in about a year after her husband ; as 
we find on the Probate records, appended to his will, " Aug. 16, 
1786, the executrix being deceased, administration on the above 
is granted to Abraham Runnals next of kin^" who afterwards re- 
ceived license from Judge Badger, at Gilmanton, Sept. 21, 1792, 
to " sell certain tracts of lund which belonged to the estate of John 
Runnals late of Barrington," and accordingly conveyed the same, 
one to Thomas H. Lewis, of Kittery, Me , *'Oct. 19, 1792," and 
another to Thonaas Langley, of Lee, " Nov. 8, 1792." 

2142. Abraham^ [2131] (John^), was "tithing man" in Dur- 
ham, 1764 and 1765; also in Lee (set off from Durham, 1766), 
1767 and 1768. His name then disappears from the Lee Records, 



1»ART III. — SECOND GENERATION. 179 

and reappears on the New Durham ftecords several times in 1773 
and from 1780 to 1797, as '^ fence viewer/* or *» tithing man." 
Having exchanged his land in Lee at £80, for one hundred acres 
in New Durham at £60, with Gideon Mathes, of Lee, — both deeds 
bearing date "Apr. 25, 1772," — he soon after moved, with his 
numerous family, to his New Durham home. His improvements 
here had scarcely commenced, when he responded to his country's 
call, — showing his genuine Scotch spirit against the English, — 
and on July 16, 1775, joined the American army at Winter Hill, 
when more than fifty-seven years old. " Four of his sons embarked 
in the same cause, — bearing the motto, ' Victory or death,' — two 
of whom perished in the conflict" (Rev. E. Place in " Morning 
Star" of Apr. 28, 1847). Some of his descendants allege that he 
had '* six sons and two sons-in-law in the revolutionary war " ; but 
this lacks confirmation ; Mr. Place's is doubtless the true account. 
It is also stated that during the time of his service, his wife, 
daughters^ and daughters-in-law " carried on the farm themselves^ 
and made clothes or knit socks and mittens for their husbands and 
brothers, or for geneial distribution among the soldiers." We next 
find him (Abraham) in " Capt. John Brewster's company ; from 
Sept. 3 to Dec. 7, 1776 ; 95 days ; 85 miles travel ; place of abode 
New Durham." Again, in " Col. Pierce Long's regiment, Jan. 13, 
1777," when he signs a receipt (" Kunls") for "£2 advance pay" ; 
and yet once more on the alei*t, old as he was, the New Hampshire 
military records giving his name in '*Capt. Oilman's company, 
Stickney's regiment, Stark's brigade, July 20, 1777 " ; on a " march 
to reinforce the northern army," from which, however, he was 
'* discharged Sept. 30." This was probably " for disability," as 
tradition has it in his family ; as also that " his son James," being 
free from prior engagements, " took his place." 

The original one hundred acres, in New Durham which was im- 
proved at Jirst^ as above stated, and was afterwards occupied by 
him, included nearly the farm owned in 1869 by Baalis B. Tibbets, 
in the south part of the town. He seems to have been a practical 
or assistant sui'veyor, when he first came to New Durham, as a 
deposition of his is found on the Strafford records, dated *' Nov. 
28, 1793," that he assisted one Timothy Murray '' some time before 
the civil war between Great Britain and the United States of 
America began," in runniag out a lot of land in New Durham ; 
that '* a certain beech tree was marked by them at corner of 
Lot 3, Ist division, and that a certain stone, placed by David 
Elkins this day, stands where the beech tree stood, or not more 
than six feet from it " 

He m. Hannah Smith, 1744. She was b. June 30, 1718, beinir 
a granddaughter of the venerable Rev John Buss, who was settled 
as second minister and physicnan of Oyster Biver parish, in 1674, 
continued for thirty-ihree years, lost his house and valuable library 
in the Indian attack of 1694, and d. in 1736, aged 108. She was 
blind for twenty years, was an eminently pious and devoted 
Christian, and d. Feb. 13, 1812, aged 93 years 7 months 13 days.

well conflrmed amoDg her desceodants in Vermont, as also the 
alleged years of her children's blvths, induce as to place her 
birth before her seven oldest brothers', though there is some 
authority for calling her younger than they. 

2144. Abraham, b. 1746 ; d. young, in Durham, or Lee, as Is most prob- 

able ; though one of the descendants of Jonathan a-X"ms i j?t 
he grew up, was m., and served and d. of sickness in the Eer- 
olutionary army; called also ** Benjamin." erroneously. 
2146. John, b. 1748 ; one authority only for the name of ** Pele ." 
This was the oldest of the " four brothers " who eote od tae 
army, and he may prevlonsly have m. He was donf)biess the 
"John Runnels in Henry Dear)>orn's Co., Stai'k's reo-meou." 
to whom ** £8 " Is assigned among " Losses at the bai. 'e of 
Charlestown, June 17, 1776 " (N. H. Military Records) ; pt ol)- 
ably also the «* John Reynolds " enlist ed July 22, 1776, for Cau- 
ada, in Col. Daniel Moore's (?) regiment, losi ag his ]>je sooa 
after in that expedition, as one of the " two sons " who Is 
known to have '* perished" early "in the conflict." 

2146. Isaac [2198], b. 1749. 

2147. Jamrs [2201, b. Jan. 26, 1762. 

2148. Samuel [2208], b. July 16, 1764. 

2149. Nathaniel [2219], b. 1756 ; neither himself nor his son Ab»'am 

are now remembered in New Durham, as the son and gi'anuson 
of Abraham, which makes the relationship, to some exleoo, a 
matter of doubt and (^f supposition merely; but see [2407]. 

2160. Jonathan [2222], b. Aug. 16, 1768; is known to have been a 

"seventh son." 

2161. Hannah, b. 1760; d. young. 
2152. Alice [2230], b. Mar. 2, 1762. 

2163. Judith (Ruth or Rhoda), b. 1766; d. young. 

2164. Ebenezer [2238], b. 1768. 

2155. William^ [2132] (John^). His name appears upon the 
Durham records as '* Informer," in 1768; "Informer of kill'Dg 
deer," 1760-1761, and " Field Driver," 1764. His wife was Lydia, 
as mentioned in his will, "May 23, 1773"; "to receive one heVf 
the farm as long as she lives." He d. before " Feb. 9, 1774," as 
his oldest son was at that time appointed administrator of his 
father's estate. The true definition of an " administrator," as one 
" who administers upon the estate of an intestate" seems not to be 
observed in many of the old records. He was a blacksmith, in 
Lee, and may have occupied the stand, since removed, near the 
present town-house on Lee Hill, which Nathan Runnels, his son, is 
remembered to have owned. His children, as named in the will, 
cannot be traced, except the oldest. They were : — 

2156. MosES [2243], b. 1752. 

2157. Hannah, b. 1754 (?); to receive, by her father's will, "£2—10 

shillings aud one cow." 
2168. Israel, b. Nov. 1757; was "under sixteen" at the time of his

father's will; to receive "£5.*' His name is found among 
twenty-one " men who went from Lee " to the Revolutionary 
war; was enrolled in Capt. F. M. Ball's (?) Co., "Apr. 18, 
1777," as being then "nineteen years of age"; also among 
"men that enlisted flrom the parish of Lee, before the year 
1778, that are now in the Continental army, June 80, 1781." 
On the military acconnts, £25, 8s. 4d. Is at one time credited 
to him for service. 

2159. Stephen, b. 1759 ; same mention made of him in the will, as of 

his Vrother Israel, above, and his military record is the same, 
except his enrolment in Capt. Ball's company, under date, 
**Jan 24, 1777," then said to be "seventeen years of age." 
He is also noted in " Capt. Goss' Co , Nichols' regiment, 
Stark's Brigade," as enlisting, "July 20, 1777," and "dis- 
charged Sept. 28," with '* travel to Stillwater"; also twenty- 
five days f^om " Aug. 6, 1778," going in Dan ( ?) Emerson's Co., 
Nichols' regiment, to Rhode Island, and finally he is noticed 
twice ("Stephen Rnnels, of 'Lee"), as serving in Capt. A. 
Perkins's company, at Portsmouth, 2 mos. 18 days at one time, 
1 mo. op ( ?) days at another, receiving for the latter £2. 

2160. Nathan, b. 1761 (?); £5 by his father's will; was settled ns a 

blacksmith at Lee Hill, see above ; hence, " Oct. 16, 1798," he 
is called " Nathan Runels of Lee, blacksmith," receiving fk*om 
Joseph Meeder, " 18il acres near land of Elijah Cartland," 
which he deeded to James Jenkins, ** Feb. 15, 1796." He also 
deeded to William Runals, of Lee, probably his nephew [2244], 
his blacksmith's shop and tools, "Nov. 18, 1797." He Is 
reported to have had a son Israel. 

2161. Deborah, b. 1764 ( ?) ; to receive by her father's will " £2— 10s." 

" against she is eighteen." 

2162. Betty, b. 1766 (?) ; had the same bequest by will. 

2163. Elizabeth^ [2133] (John^), m. Solomon Snell, of Bar- 
rlngton, 1743 ; hence mentioned accordingly in her father's will, 
1766. Children: — 

2164. Samuel (Snell), b. 1744 ; Is called " a minor upwards of fourteen 

years of age" in 1758; when his uncle Joseph Hunnels was 
appointed his guardian, his father, " Solomon Snell, late of 
Barrlngton, yeoman," having previously "deceased." 
2163. Edward, b. 1748; was in the Revolutionary war. Dearborn 
l)rew*s Co. ( ?) ; was "wounded," and probably died ; in con- 
sideration of which, his brother " Samuel Snell received pay 
from the Treasurer, 1777." (N. H. Military Records.) 

2166. Joseph^ [2134] (John^), was a tanner, and settled at 
first in Durham, " Oyster River," where his three oldest children 
were bom of his wife Lydia, whom he m. 1749. Received land 
from E. Davis, in Durham, " at a place called the Hook," "July 8, 
1751." But ''Feb. 11, 1754, Joseph Runels, of Dover," deeded 
"the Hook in Durham, to Samuel Burley, of New Market, for 
£500.'* He is called '• Joseph R., tanner, of Dover," in four other 
real estate transactions, up to " Nov. 2, 1763." He d. in Dover, 
1765, aged 88. Administration of his estate granted to Lydia, his 
widow, "Apr. 3, 1766"; invent'>ry taken "April 30," including 
" forty-five acres of land in Durham, with orchards and buildings 
thereon/* probably inherited from his father, " at £180," and " five 
acres of land, with house and barn, bark-house, work-house, tan-

yard and orchard," — probably in Dover, — at only " £60 " ! (per- 
haps a mistake of the transcriber). License to sell his real estate 
granted to the said Lydia, " Feb. 12, 1767"; but as she m, 2(1, 
James Libbey, of Dover, Aug. 31, 1768, a similar license was re- 
newed to Libbey, in respect to the sale of fifteen and one half acres 
of his land in Lee, " May 12, 1779." His estate was not finally 
settled till more than ten years after. His old account-book, 
as a tanner, in Dover, is now in the possession of his grandson 
George [2605], of Bangor, Me. ; a choice and truly valuable relic, 
as in it is found the following complete and well authenticated list 
of his children, with their birth dates, — the four oldest being evi- 
dently named after the four youngest of John', as elsewhere shown ; 
see [2137-40] : — 

2167. Stephen, b. Feb. 10, 1750, in Dnrham ; supposed to have d. young. 

2168. Solomon, b. Nov. 5, 1761 ; appears trom the Lee records to have 

been living in the "Centre District" of that town as late as 
1815; bat there is no evidence that he had or left a family, 
fie was in the Revolatlpnary war the first year, as, among the 
New Hampshire military papers, we find in " Capt. Wiuburn 
Adams's Co., June 2, 1775, Solomon Kunals, tanner, of Dur- 
ham, aged 23." His business is thus identified. John Smith, 
selectman of Durham, under date '^May 1, 1776," certilles to 
''Solomon Ruuals," among '*the names of non-commissioned 
officers and soldiers ft'om Durham, who were in the Conti- 
nental service the summer past, and have engaged for the 
current year." 

2169. Deliverance, b. Mar. 25, 1753; " 1752" on the record must be a 

mistake ; is also supposed to have d. early in life. 

2170. WiNTHROP [2247], b. Feb. 28, 1754 (elsewhere 1755), in Durham. 

2171. Mary [2261], b. Apr. 27, 1755 (6), in Dover.

2173. Joseph [2274], b. Aug. 4, 1759, in Dover. 

2174. Benjamin [2285], b. July 21, 1765, in Rochester. 

2175. Sarah^ [2135] (John^), m. Jonathan Banker, of Durham 
(Lee), Dec. 174^, and moved with her husband to Barnstead, N H., 
in 1770, when her sixth child was ten years old. He built the first 
mill on Suncook River, in B., at what is now Barnstead Parade. 
8he was a Quaker by persuasion, and of most estimable character. 
After settling in Barnstead, she used to go over into Pittsfield, 
nearly two miles, by spotted trees, to do her baking^ till, in the 
course of three or four years, an oven of rock was built near her 
own dwelling. At ttie age of ^4, ** she spun and reeled one skein 
of cotton yarn in a single hour," notice of which exploit was given 
to a newspaper by her neighbor, the Rev. Enos George, much to 
her annoyance. ^" 1 would not have spun it." said she, ^'if I had 
known hriend George would put it in the papers." All her sons 
were soldiers in the Revolutionary war, except FjIi, on account of his 
being a miller, and Oba iiah on account of his youth ; also two sons- 
in-law. He d. »^ept. 1796, aged 67 ; she d. Jan. 26, 1S26, in her 
y5th year. Children, all born in Durham except the youngest : —

ways stand upon it, and built the first foundry at Gilmanton 
Iron Works. The Rev. Mr. George says of him, ** He was one 
of the first settlers in Barnstead, and lived to see a wilderness

ants to have been " killed in battle " on this expedition ; but he 
was only wounded, probably in the " second severe engagement " 
which preceded the surrender, when the British General Fraser was 
killed, and he seems to have died of lingering sickness, connected

quainted with the bride's sister, Tamson Ham, whom he afterwards 
m., 1774. 8he was b. 1748. He was chosen '' Fence Viewer" and 
"Tidden man" at New Durham, Mar. 6, 1775, but entered his 
country's service the following season with his father and brothers, 
see [2142]. He is thought to have served continuously as a sol- 
dier till 1779-80, as he is not mentioned on the town records again 
till Mar. 1780, when he was chosen one of the '* Sevars upon the 
rodes." No record of that army service is found among the New 
Hampshire military papers, till "July 20, 1779," when he enlisted 
in his brother's company, '• Co. Six, Col. Hercules Moone^s regi- 
ment, continental service, under Gen. Sullivan, for the defence of 
Rhode Island. A sergeant at first., he was promoted to ensign, iji 
the same company, ^* Sept. 16, 1779,*' and so continued till "Jan. 
17, 1780," "4 months 2 days." He was the only soldier in that 
expedition from New Durham, — beside his brother Capt. Samuel, 
— as we have a " Record for owe soldier who served in R. 1. for 
New Durham, six months, and traviling fees, £42," with his name 
appended, as "James Runnells." It is certain ^ however, that he 
served under various enlistments prior to 1779, once for "about 
six months, taking the place of his father Abraham, who returned 
on account of disability *' ; this is according to tradition in the 
family, the validity of which is not impaired by the mere absence <if 
his name before 1 V 79, from the confessedly confused and imperfect 
" military papers " in the Adjutant General's office of New Hamp- 
shire. He remained in New Durham till afber 1783, being " drawn, 
as grand juior," that year (Town Records) ; but soon after moved 
to Ossipee, N. H. ; there resided as a farmer, and subsequently at 
Tultonborough, where he d. Apr. 9, 1844, aged 92. He was a firm, 
consistent member of the Free Will Baptist Church for sixty years, 
having joined the first church of that order ever organized < and 
being appointed a " Ruling Elder" in the days 6f Randall. She d. 
at Tuftonboro', 1847, aged 99. Children : —

in part, an abstract of the sketch of his life, by Rev. E. Place, in 
the '' Morning Star" of Apr. 28, 1847. "When sixteen years of 
age, he heard Whitefield preach hiis last sermon, at Exeter, Sept. 
2..*, 1770, from 2d Cor. xiii. 5. The preacher died the next morn- 
ing at Newburyport; his young auditor was left under powerful 
conviction,, but afterwards became careless as before. At the age 
of 21, he joined the American army at Winter Hill," as before

Stated, [2142]. "In July, 1776, he was with Gen. Sullivan at 
Crown l*oint, N. Y., and was left by the General for some time at 
that place, in charge of all his baggage and papers. Was also with 
Sulliyan at the bloody battle of the Brandywine, Sept. 11, 1777, 
and at Gennantown, Oct. 4. With the same General again in 
Rhode Island, in 1778 ; and the next winter was sent to Geneva, 
N. Y., from which expedition he returned home, bearing (without 
knowing it) a captain's commission for himself in a letter to Gov. 
Meshech Weare." Hence his name now first appears in the Adjt. 
General's (i)ublished) Report, — in which names of Revolutionary 
officers only are given, — as " Captain of a Co. in Col. Hercules 
Mooney's regiment for the defence of Rhode Island," serving from 
"June 30, 1779, to Jan. 16, 1780, 6 months, 18 days, (£) 48 \ " 
Also on the New Hampshire Provincial Records, "July 17, 1780 
made out commission for Capt. Samuel Runnels appointed to com 
mand a company on the western frontiers " ; and July 18, the same 
ordered to proceed to Haverhill on Connecticut River, and tft^e 
under his command one of the companies [of Rangers] raised fOT 
defence of the frontier." One account among different branches of 
his descendants, makes him to have continued in the service longer, 
to have acted as aide-decamp of Gen. Washington, and to have 
been toith him at the surrender of Comwallis. But, if so, it muaV, 
have been a special service subsequently entered, for Mr. Placfc 
informs us that in November, of 1780, " he resigned his cotacava^ 
sion, and immediately enlisted as a soldier under the Prince of 
Peace, with Randall as sub-leader instead of Washington.'* hS^^ 
finally returning home, he received various tokens of respect fpovo^ 
his fellow-townsmen of New Durham, being elected a,8Bessor ^^^ 
years, 1784-5 ; moderator of town meeting two years, 1786-'7» *^ _ 
first selectman four years, 1788-91. He received a justice's ^^?p^ 
mission, in 1795, — first noted on the town books, 179T, — *^\-tv- 
this capacity he decided, during his life, seven hundr^ci and. ^^ z^^ 
five cases, only eight of which were ever appealed to a liig\ier ^^^^x 
Being a leading member and ruling elder of the ne^w Fre® j.^ 
Baptist denomination, he obtained an act from th.e G eneta-^ »>^for 
of New Hampshire, Dec. 11, 1812, for a " Charitable Society ^^^ 
the widows and orphans of deceased ministers, and. oont-lnued *^ 
ident of that Society for twenty years. From tUe Dover H^SJ^ ^ 
of Deeds, we learn that he purchased land in Roch.ester^ — pernap 
intending to settle there, — at five different times, in all one n^D- 
dred and thirty-nine acres, between '• May 7, 1781 ^** a.xid '' Apr. ^^^

t 

N. D. estate at three different times, up to 1795, — a portion of 
which he conveyed to Joseph L. Wille, ** Aug. 6, 1793," but was 
still left an extensive land-holder in New Durham, at a time, how- 
ever, when land was very cheap. He also came in possession of 
Lot No. 81, in Barrington, "the original right of Job Runnells," 
which he sold to John Foss, 4th, of B., Dec. 17, 1789. The final 
result of these transactions was not to enrich himself^ though he 
also received a pension of three hundred dollars annually, and so 
late as Oct. 26, 1841, when nearly eighty-eight years of age, he 
made the following peculiar record of his worldly estate : — 

*' Accumulated in sixty years .... $28,510, 

Expenses of family, said time . . $18,405, 
Given to family, on settlement • . 6,515, 

Given to the poor and needy, and to various, 

benevolent societies . . . 1,750 

Lost in bad debts 1,257 

Property on hand, real and personal . 583 ! 

Total as above .... $28,510." 

** The general character of this eminent servant of God was 
worthy of all praise. His success was owing, under God, to his 
perseverance in whatever he undertook. In all religious exercises 
he was marked by true devotion, and great humility, with frequent 
falling tears." His acceptable efforts at religious meetings in his 
old age, are still remembered in many places, as at Andover, N. H., 
where he was accustomed to visit his daughter residing in that 
place. " He was always at public worship on the Sabbath ; heard, 
in later life, more than two thousand sermons, as by record kept, 
and travelled seventeen thousand miles to monthly, quarterly, and 
yearly meetings, and to general conference." He was the intimate 
friend and co-laborer of the Rev. Benjamin Randall, and superin- 
tended his funeral, Oct. 26, 1808, which is said to have been 
*' conducted with great quietness, decorum, and simplicity," though 
" few, if any funerals, in New Hampshire, ever have had so large 
an attendance" (Dr. Joseph FuUonton in " Morning Star" of July 
81, 1872). In stature he stood six feet, of large size, a command- 
ing countenance and dignified deportment. He d. at N. Durham, 
Mar. 21, 1847, in his 93d year. His funeral was attended by sev- 
eral ministers, — sermon by Rev. E. Place, — and he was buried 
near his house, his gravestone bearing this appropriate inscription : 
" Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints." He

2219. Nathaiiiel3 [2149] (Abraham^, Johni), was not in the 
Revolutionary war, but is supposed to have settled in New Dur- 
ham, as he is Jnioton to have had the two following children, bom 
in New Durham : — 

2220. Abram [2407], b. Mar. 1797. 

2221. Hannah, '*who was younger, and lived at least to the age of 

seventeen." Also '* one other son and one other daughter," 
whether younger or older, does not appear, *' who died in 
infancy." 

2222. Jonathan3 [2150] (Abraham^, John^). There is a tra- 
dition among some of his descendants, that he eamestlj desired to 
join his father and brothers in the Revolutionary war, and was only 
dissuaded by the entreaties of his Mends, being but sixteen years of 
age at the breaking out of hostilities. Afterwards, being still pre- 
vented by circumstances from entering the army he seems to have 
led, through his disappointment, a somewhat restless lifei, for a few 
years, and at last found his way to Concord, N. H., where he m. 
Dorothy Dimond, 1779. She was b. July 27, 1758, the daughter of 
Kzekiel and Miriam Dimond. He *^ was once more in readiness to 
enlist," for the campaigns of 1779 and 17>0, and was again prevented 
by the sickness of his wife, which continued for more than a year. 
'* He used to praj' most devoutly to the God of armies, that his dear 
wife might recover her health, and he thus be pennitted to fight the 
battles of his country." He was a very sympathetic man, and never 
spoke of his brothers, lost in the war, without tears. "Was never 
known to speak a harsh or unpleasant word." Being the " seventh 
son" of his father's family, he was consulted, according to the custom 
of the times, by hundreds of people, for the cure of scrofula and other 
diseases. A deed among the Kockingham Records speaks of him 
as a " Clothier of Concord," receiving ** May 1 , 1787," from Ezekiel 
Dimond, " a certain part of the stream called Turkey river, begin-

ning at the mouth Of Great Turkey pond, and extending down 
stream to the head of the lesser pond ; also one half of the Mling 
mill on said premises, — all Dimond's right and title to the same, 
— together with a dwelling-house near by." He also bought of 
D. Carter. "Oct. 21, 1799," " a small piece of land in Concord, 
lying upon Turkey Upper Falls, so called." He soon after moved 
to Deering, where he d. Apr. 18, 1804, in his 46th year. She d. at 
Deering, July 10, 1825, aged 67. The following register of their

adopted child of Paul Tasker, of Batringtm, 1771, and after 
'* administering" upon his father's estate, 1774, see [2156], receiv- 
ing by will " one half the farm," " a colt, a cow and blacksmith's 
tools," he entered the Revolutionary service. Is noticed among 
the "soldiers from Lee" in connection with his brothers [2158] 
and [2159] ; has "£35 15s. 4d." against his name on account; 
said to be *' twenty-five years of age, Apr. 18, 1777," when a mem- 
ber of " Capt. F. M. Bell's Co." ; enrolled in " 2d Co., 2d regiment. 
Col. George Reed's, for the years 1777-9 " ; " amount of deprecia- 
tion, $171.50"; "amount of wages, 1780-1, $80," and lastly, 
noted as "wow in the Continental army, June 80, 1781" (N. H. 
military papers). Soon after this latter date, he was discharged, 
went to procure his pay, and was never heard from afterwards. 
He is supposed, therefore, to have d., perhaps, by violence, 1781-2, 
in his 30th year. His wife was b. 1752, and d., his widow, Apr. 
18, 1814, aged 62. Their children, b. in Lee, were : —

2247. WiNTHROp3 [2170] (Joseph^, Johni), was a joiner by 
trade, and is said by his descendants to have been early *' in the 
Revolutionary war at Ticonderoga." The military records say he 
was "mustered at Kingston, by Josiah Bartlett, Aug. 13, 1780," 
and that he " enlisted for Barrington to recruit the New Hampshire 
regiments in the Continental service, Dec. 31, 1780." This 
proves he had settled in B. prior to that date. He lived, finally, 
in the east part of Barrington, on a small farm given him by his 
last wife's father, and was there killed by the falling of a tree, 
Jan. 13 (gravestone), more probably, as by family record, Feb. 15, 
1832 (1), aged 78. He was four times m. ; 1st, to a daughter of 
the Rev. Samuel Hutchins, of Lee, 1780, by whom his oldest child.

subsisting on its spotted denizens with wild game from the woods,

ridden from New Hampshire, having also for company during the

Arcade), N. Y. After years of poor health, she became a very 
devoted Christian. The following, from her pen, was given as ad- 
vice to her oldest son, while away at school : '* Repentance 
towards God, and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, is the only foun- 
dation which is laid, or can be laid, for man's salvation." " Thus 
did Christ and his apostles preach, as you may find in Matt. iv. 17 ; 
Mark i. 15 ; Acts xvi. 31, etc. I wish you to examine these texts, 
accept them, and resign yourself into the hands of God, praying 
Him earnestly, for Christ's sake, to forgive your sins, and yourself 
forgiving your erring fellow-men, as you hope to be forgiven."

mother, a few hours before his death, is, for sentiment, em- 
bodied In the following lines, afterwards addressed to her by 
a friend, the first being in imitation of Pope, ** The Dying 
Christian's Address to his Soul": — 

" What is this that stealeth o*er me ? 
Drowns my spirit, draws my breath. 
Chills my heart with dewy dampness ? 
Tell me, grandma, is this death ? 

" Shall I soon pass o'er that river, — 
Not dark, but bright with Jesus* love. 
As when he blessed the little children. 
And gained for them a home above ? 



(< 



i( 



* In my Father's house are many mansions,' 
There J shall surely find a home ; 

Surrounded by the holy angels, 

I *11 wait there, grandma, till you come. 

I know, when spring again shall open. 
And bright fiowers are all in bloom, 

'T is then you '11 miss your little Andrew, 
Sleeping sweetly In the tomb. 



** Not there will be the loving spirit, — 
No, ah, no 1 that dwells on high ; 
Returned again to God who gave it,^ 
No more to sin, no more to die. 

** 0, glorious hope I do not reject it; 

That Christ our sins has washed away; 
With his own blood he gave the ransom. 
Then fVom His arms I would not stay.

INTRODUCTORY KOTE. 

The chief object of this Appendix is to preserve in a permanent 
form, for the aid of future genealogists, such notes and items 
respecting other Reynolds and Runnels families as came to hand 
incidentally^ while the author was collecting materials for the main 
body of his work. These families, of course, could not be fully 
traced without swelling the book to an inordinate size, and delay- 
ing its issue far beyond the expectations of those interested in the 
preceding parts. The records are, therefore, fragmentary, desul* 
tory, and imperfect ; mere names are given in many cases, and there 
has been no opportunity to substantiate the doubtful or reconcile 
the conflicting allusions ; but the author flatters himself that the 
more laborious and competent annalists of the numerous Reynolds 
families in our land, who may yet appear, will feel grateful for the 
notes and suggestions herein contained. 

The remark has been well made, that any attempt to trace and 
connect all the Reynolds families, even in this countrj'-, would prove 
almost as fruitless a task as to do the same with the families of 
Smith or Brown. Still it is to be hoped that different individuals 
may yet be encouraged to trace out, different branches of that truly 
honorable name. 



252 RUNNELS AND REYNOLDS MEMORIALS. 



A. 

THE EARLIEST REYNOLDS FAMILIES OF NEW ENGLAND; 
WITH RECOUDS AND NOTICES OF THE DESCENDANTS OF 
ROBERT REYNOLDS, OF BOSTON, 1632-1669. 

Sayage's Genealogical Dictionary mentions the troenty-two fol- 
lowing as being heads of families in New England prior to 1 690, 
and as bearing the names, chiefly, of '' Reynolds, Renold, or 
Renolds." Here given in chronological order, and numbered con- 
secutively for reference. The notes in quotations directly after 
the names are from Savage. 

8276. Richard, ** passenger, 1634"; probably the same mentioned In 
the ** N. E. Geu. Register," Vol. 9, as «* Richard Reynolds, 
passenger to New England, Mar. 24, 1638." 

3277. John, " Watertown, 1634 ; ft'eeman. May 6, 1635 ; wife's name 
8arah ( ?)." This is probably the John who is known, from 
other sources, to have been the brother of Robert [3278], to 
have moved tcith his brother Arom Boston to Watertown, and 
afterwards, in 1686, to Weathersfield, Conn. Savage says he 
** removed again before 1644 to Stamford," Ct. Bond*s Hist, 
of Watertown spells his name ''Reinolds," and says he *' went 
A'om Weathersfield to Saybrook, and d. as early as 1662." 

8278. ROBKRT [3298], ** Watertown, 1686." 

3279. William, "Duxbury, 1636; m. Alice Kitson, Ang. 30, 1638." 

8280. WiLUAM, " Providence, 1637." 

8281. William, ** Salem, 1640." We elsewhere learn that he was admit- 

ted to the charch in Salem, ltj40, and moved to Providence, 
perhaps following Roger Williams, in 1641. From these ances- 
tors and others mentioned below, who settled In Providence 
and vicinity, the very numerous Reynolds families now in 
Rhode Island are doubtless descended. No less than seventy 
individuals of this name were found in the Providence city 
directory in 1871. 

8282. Henrt, ** Salem, 1642, Lyme, 1647"; perhaps returned to Salem, 

as Henry Renolds deeded laud in Salem to Thomas West, 
*< Apr. 29, 1665," and may have been the ** Henry Reinoles, on 
petition against imposts, Massachusetts, 1668" (N. £. Gen. 
Reg., Vol. 9). The " Inventory of Henry Renolds, of Salem," 
was rendered "May 13, 1693, £19- 198." (Essex Prob. Recs.). 

8283. James (" Renell "), " Plymouth, 1643. To Wickford, R. I." The 

N. E. Gen. Reg., Vol. 4, also says ''James ReneU, Plymouth, 
Aug. 1643." 

8284. John, ** Isle of Shoals, 1647." 

8285. Nathakiel [3299], " son of Robert [3278], Boston, 1667." 

8286. John, " Saybrook to Norwich, 1659" ; probably the " Kaynolds " 

mentioned in N. E. Gen. Reg., Vol. 2, as found ** among the first 
inhabitants of Saybrook," and afterwards ** in Norwich," Ct. 

8287. John, ** Weymouth, 1660." 

3288. Thomas, " New London, 1664" ; may also have been the '* Thomas 

Rennolds, Westerly, R I., 1669" (N. E. Gen. Keg., Vol. 10). 

3289. John, ** Weathersfield, 1667"; probably son of [3277].

-3290- JoK4THAi5r, "Stamford, 1€«7*; perhaps the same as '^Jonaliiaa 

Benalds " in list of citizens in Greenwich, Cu, 1^72 (N, E, Gen, 
Reff., Vol. 4), and probably another son of [S277], 
8291- ROBEBT, •* Boston, 1670 " ; cannot be identical with Robert [S278] ;

3296. Frasos, "also" 

3297. UsKRT, "probably a brother, Kingstown (Naiaganset oowi- 

try), 1686." 

From the above ample storehouse of genealogical material^ in tiie 
names of ancestors, as afforded by Savage, we are now only able 
to select, for more particalar mention, — 

3298- RoBEBT^ [3278]. From well authenticated private ** rec- 
ords of long ago," he is known to have been in Boston in 1632, 
where he is mentioned as a ** shoemaker and freeman, bept. 3, 1 634 " ; 
shortly aflber to have moved to Watertown, Mass , — hence Savage's 
alusion [3278], — and finally to have migrated ** with his brother 
John'' to Weathersfield, Conn., — hence -^was dismissed by the 
church. Mar. 29, 163G, to form a church at Weathersfield." He 
soon returned, however, to Boston, and there lived and d. Apr. 27, 
1659. Hence his will is referred to, " N. E Gen. Reg., Vol. 9," 
*' Boston, 1658-9." His wife's first name was Mar3\ She d. Jan.

3302. Sakah ; m. a Mason. 

3303. Mary; m. a Sawyer ("Richard Sanger," according to Savage). 

3304. Nathaniel^ [3i99] (Robert*), was designated as '* Cap- 
tain Nathaniel R," probably for service in Philip's war " at 
Chelmsford, Feb. 25, 1676 " ; was also a " shoemaker " and ** free- 
man, 1665"; was m., 1st, b}^ Gov. John Endicott, to Sarah, 
daughter of John Dwile, or ^'Dwite" (Savage says ** D wight"), of 
Dedham, ^'ov. 30, 1657. She d. July 8, 1 663. lie m,, 2d, l*riscilla, 
daughter of Peter Brackett, " a well-to-do tradesman in Boston," 
previously to Feb. 21, 1666. He moved to Bristol, R. L, in 1680 ; 
was recognized in the first town-meeting at Bristol, '* and became 
one of the principal men of that town," where he d. July 10, 1708. 
Children : —

two sons who settled in North Bridgewater ; but his birth now 
being established between twenty and thirty years earlier than our 
first reckoning, we are constrained to call him their grandfather. 
If so, he doubtless lived in Bristol, and there d. " Oct. 29, 1719,*' 
aged 56. His wife's name is said to have been Ruth, and he is 
thought to have had seven children, of whom we have the names of

3374. Nathaniel^ [3337] (Jolin^, Nathaniel, Nathaniel^, Rob- 
ert^). Whose son he was is not certainly known. His pedigree is

John^ [3333], as before stated. He m. Lydia Raymond, and set- 
tled in Marblehead (or Beverly), Mass , as per birth of oldest son ; 
moved to Amherst, N. S., in 1762. He had been a sea captain, 
but left his home in Nova Scotia, at the commencement of the 
Revolutionary war, to fight for the freedom of the colonies. He 
could not return till after peace was declared, when he found his 
wife dead, his children scattered, and his propert3' confiscated. Jn 
the meantime, however (probably about 1780), he once vainly 
attempted to rescue his family from Amherst by a bold strategy. 
Single-handed, he captured a small vessel in the night, boarding it 
from a log canoe, securing the watch, demanding? the cabin key of 
the CAptain, pistol in hand, and quietly locking him in ! Tlie cap- 
tain supposed he had several men with him. This was in Cumber- 
land Bay. He then attempted to work the vessel towards Amherst, 
but with slow progress, being really alone, so that the guns of Fort 



APPENDIX. 257 

Cumberland were turned upon him by daylight, and he was obliged 
to escape by his canoe, in the fog, and paddle his way to Machias, 
Me. The officers of the fort, suspecting he might be secreted near 
his home, sought to intimidate his wife to divulge his hiding-place, 
one of them firing his pistol, killing her lap-dog under her chair, 
and thus throwing her into a death-like swoon, as her youngest son 
well remembered. 

He was a captain in the Revolutionary arm3S and had a township 
of land granted to him, on which Marietta, O., now stands, being 
sold soon after his death *' for thirty pieces of silver." After the 
war, collecting his children, the oldest son now married, he made, 
with them, a pioneer settlement, in the then howling wilderness, at 
Lubec, District of Maine ; revisited Marblehead, where he again 
married ; returned to Lubec " to prepare for his bride," and was 
soon after drowned on his final passage to Marblehead, thus closing 
his eventful life. (Letter of Mrs. Clara J. Reynolds [3481], Pem- 
broke, Me.) His children were : —

c. 

NOTICES OF CERTAIN REYNOLDS FAMILIES THAT SETTLED 
ORIGINALLY IN AMEKK^A, OUTSIDE OF NEW ENGLAND. 

We have it on the authority of a descendant, Mrs. Thomas 
Reynolds, assistant P. M. at Reynoldsyille, Jefferson Co., Pa., 
that — 

3804. Eenrt (Reynolds) came from Chichester, Eng., and 
settled at Burlington, N. J., after a twenty-two weeks' yoyage in 
1676. Mrs. R., above, has a brief record of his posterity, who 
are very numerous in that vicinity. 

Another descendant, M J. Reynolds, a nephew of Mrs. Thomas, 
resides at Chateaugay Lake, northern New York, from whom we 
learn that this ancestor was of the Quaker persuasion, and came 
over with William Penn, having previously been a king's collector for 
Charles II ; also, that the family, or a branch of it, settled in Chester 
Co., Pa. This would make his arrival six years later than the 
above, or 1682. In a later generation we have three brothers : — 

3805. Thomas [3808]. 

3806. Abraham ; resided in New York city, and had a family. 

3807. Samuel ; also of New York city ; no children. 

3808. Thomas [3805] ( Henry^), is said to have had six 

sons and daughters, of whom : — 

3809. Thomas, residing in Reynolds vllle, Pa. (see above), is the only 

survivor (1868). 

8810. Abraham, b. in Wilmin^on, Del. ; settled at Chateaugay Lake, 

or vicinity, In New York; is said to have been a very lartce 
man, six foet ten inches in height, and weighing 396 pounds. 
He was probably the father of — 

8811. M. J. (Reynolds), mentioned above. 

It is presumed that — 

3812. John F., a distinguished general in the late civil war, may have 
been a descendant of Henry [3804], as he wa6 b. 1820, in Lan- 
caster, Pa. He entered the U. S. army in 1846, and first served 
his country in Mexico and California. Early in the late war 
he commanded a brigade of the ** Pennsylvania Reserves," with 
which he distinguished himself at the battle of Gaines' Mills, 
In 1862, though afterwards taken prisoner. Again In most 
daring and heroic service at the battle of Gainesville (or 
second Bull Run), In August of that year; a leader of two 
corps In ** the main attack in front," at Fredericksburg, In the 
following December, and finally falling in defence of the soil 
of his native State, and almost In sight of his home, near the 
commencement of the great battle at Gettysburg, July 1, 1863. 
He had dismounted and gone forward to reconnoitre; and 
while observing the enemy through a fence, was struck In the 
neck by a sharp-8hoot(ir*3 buU^^t, aqd d. \x\ ^ few moments. 
His age was 48.

274 RUNNELS AND REYNOLDS MEMORIALS. 

We are furnished with the following items respecting anotb.- 
Reynolds family, traced from England to Nova Scotia : — 

3813. William (Reynolds), and his brother, two years younger, h/ the 

name of \ 

3814. Thomas, were b. and bred in Leicestershire, Eng., where they ived 

with their mother and one younger sister, owning a hous^ and 
a small piece of land. The latter (Thomas) left England just 
before the first American war, and, being on the high jpa when 
war was declared, he was ** pressed " and put on boarian Eng- 
lish man-of-war. Was finally landed and dischargee! at Halifax, 
N S. ; went thence to Pictou, was m., and at last moved into 
the wilds of Musquodoboit, where he made him & home, lived, 
and d. at the age of 96. No tidings from friends or property 
in the old country were ever obtained. He had eight children, 
none of whom ever left Nova Scotia. Of these — 

3816. Wbllwood, b. 1783, now resides in Upper Musquodoboit, N. S. 
(1869), having reared a family of six sous and six daughters, 
** now alive," — of whom 

3816. Jambs, was living in the same place, 1869. 



D. 
NOTICES OF OTHER RUNNELS FAMILIES IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. 

We now propose to add a few notes on certain individuals and 
families of the Renels, Renals, or Runels name in southeastern 
New Hampshire, not connected with those of Parts II and III. 
These notes are taken from the earliest town and county records in 
Rockingham County, and may prove of some service or satisfaction, 
especially to the descendants of Owen [3820], 

The earliest allusion to any of these, or similar names, is found 
on the Portsmouth town records, where we have — 

3817. John ("Renals") on a committee and among the town officers, 

in notice of a town meeting held ** Aug. 15, 1646." 

The next allusion is among the Rockingham deeds, to one 

3818. James ("Rennell") "of ye same Portsmouth carpenter," who 

received by deed, "July 21, 1668, from Joseph Mason of Ports- 
^ mouth in ye river of Piscataquack in N. E., his dwelling house 

and lands (gardens, orchards, marishes, arable lands, floodings, 
etc.), for £270 7s. lawful money, lying and being in ye Little 
Harbor, within Piscataquack aforesaid." 

This James may have been a grocer as well as carpenter, as 
he had conveyed to him, "Nov. 12," of the same year, "six 
and a half barrels of good molasses " I We have also 

3819. Sarah (Rennels), " of Portsmouth, only heir of her father Stephen 

Crafflt, deceased," in deed of " May 28, 1692, third year of Wil- 
liam and Mai7." 



APPENDIX. 275 

We can only conclude from the above that there weie one or 
more families of this name very early in Portsmouth, from which 
may have been descended — 



3820. OwenI or "Owin" ("Renalls"), first noticed as a 
*» Planter in Exeter, May 29, 1706," and also "of Quamscott" 
(the same as Exeter), " July 6, 1715." His children were : — 

3821. Owen, who settled in Stratham; as he is called ** Owen Runalls, 

Jun.j of Siretham, May 21, 1720," and "Feb. 16, 1721-2." He 
appears, also, in twelve other deeds, with varied and sometimes 
grotesque orthographies ("Runnels, Henels, Runals, Kenes," 
and even, in one or two cases, " Oen Renls "), but always ** of 
Stretham or Stratham," till <• May 10. 1749." From other allu- 
sions to his brothers, and especially from the "Report of com- 
mittee appointed for the division of Owen Runnels* estate into 
four parts," and signed " Stratham, Jan. 28, 1766," by " Jona. 
Dearborn, Jona. Robinson, and Samuel Lane," we learn that he 
left no children, and was probably unmarried. The adminis- 
tration of his estate had been previously granted to Thomas 
Runnels, his brother, in said Stratham, "Sept. 80, 1762," — 
marking, nmrly, the time of his death. The four divisions of 
his estate, just referred to. Indicate the four additional children 
of Owen, Sen. [3820], as follows : — 

3822. Robert [3826]. 

3823. "John (Runnels), deceased, late brother of said Owen"; his 

"heirs and legal representatives" to receive "one fourth part 
of his land, 6 -|- acres, bounded," etc. He must therefore have 
d. prior to "Jan. 28, 1765," date of report. 

3824. Mary; "sister of said Owen," one fourth part of land as above, 

" also lower room and cellar at westerly end of his house." 
She is elsewhere called " singel woman and spinner." 
8825. Thomas [3829]. 

3826. Robert^ [3822] (Oweni), resided in Stratham till " Oct. 
3, 1728, when he received from Thomas Packer, of Portsmouth, 
" all right to Lot No. 30 in ye new township commonly known by 
ye name of Chester or Chestnut country *" " on condition of settle- 
ment and improvement." Accordingly he is afterwards reported 
in five other deeds prior to " Nov. 10, 1749," as being " of Ches- 
ter," selling oflf parts oi his land in C, buying one half a share in 
the town of Bow of his brother Owen, 1738, and selling the same 
to Samuel Emerson, of Chester, in 1740. He had d. like his 
brother John prior to "Jan. 28, 1755," as he is alladed to in the 
same terms in committee's report, and " his heirs and legal repre- 
' sentatives " receive one fourth part of his brother Owen's estate in 
Stratham. His children were : — 

3827. " JuDBTH," alluded to in her aunt Mary's will, *» Jan. 16, 1765," as 

" my kindswomau daughter to my brother Robert deceased," 
and made sole legatee. Probably, also, — 

3828. BOBERT, as a "Robert Runnels and Susanna his wife" were 

living ** in Chester, Feb. 16, 1795," and then deeded a parcel of 
land in C. to T. Webster. 

3^29. Thomas^ [3825] (Owen^), was probably occupying a part 
of his brother Owen's house in Stratham at the time of the latter's 



276 RUNNELS AND EEYNOLDS MEMORIALS. 

death, as. by report of committee for division he receives, besides 
the remaining fourth part of the said Owen's land, the '* East lower 
room and cellar and garret in said house to be his part of the 
buildings." 

Thomas ^' Reanols " bought twenty acres of land in Chester from 
Samuel Kymes, of Portsmouth, in 1729, but sold it to his brother 
Robert, in 1741, for £45. He finally sold out in JStratham, ^'Feb. 
13, 1761," as we have, under that date, Thomas Hunnels, of 8., 
and Elizabeth, his wife, conveying a lot of land to Satchell Clark, 
of S., '' lying and being within the estate which was my brother 
Owen Runnels's, late of Stratham, yeoman, deceased ; also some 
which fell to Mary, sister of deceased, to heirs of John, his brother, 
and also that which fell to Judith, daughter of Hobert, brother of 
said deceased, twenty-one and one fourth acres in all" ; thus con- 
firming our previous records. 

He moved to the " Parish of Deerfield, N. H.," and there under 
date "Jan. 27, 1766"; name "Thomas Runils," and condition 
" being very sick in body," he wills to Elizabeth, his dearly beloved 
wife, all his real and personal estate, and makes her his executrix. 
He d. between that time and "Feb. 17, 1769," when Elizabeth 
Runels, uidou\ of Deei-field, sold out to P. Simpson, thirty-five 
acres for £25. Their children were named in will with legacies as 
follow, each styled '* my son " : — 

3830. Owen, ** Five shilliDgs." 

3831. Thomas, * A yoke of white- faced steers." 

3832. Samukl, " Five shillings." 

3833. John, ** Five shillings." 

One of the four last mentioned children, — probably Samuel, — 
was the father of — 

3834. Owen, b. Oct. 29, 1790 ; lived in Candia, perhaps, 
also in Raymond ; d. Mar. 25, 1835, in his 45th j'^ear. He m.- 
fcjusan L. Roberts, of Raymond, Nov. 7, 1811, who was b. Mar. 13, 
1794, and d. Feb. 15, 1854, in her 60th year. Children : — 

3835. Thomas F. [3846], b. Feb. 24, 1813, in Raymond.

Still another Runnels family, which can neither be connected 
with any of the preceding, nor traced to any descendants of their 
own, appears in Barrington, N. H., as follows : — 

3871. William, said to be " of Barrington, Jan. 4, 1766," and had pre- 

viously m. Eleanor Cavenoe, as the last date is that of the deed

Bixty acres of land in B., Lot 256, **for and in consideration of 
ye love and afi'ection that / (Cavenoe) have and do bar towards 
my daughter Eleanor llunnelJs, wife of William R." 

There is similar evidence from two or three other deeds, — 
in one called William Konalls, — that he was still living in 
Barrington, "Apr. 1, 1772," and "Mar. 18" and "Apr. 14, 
1775," in the last of which he conveyed " certain tracts of land 
to John Cavemoe." His children, as proved below, were : —

F. 

A GENEALOGY OF THE FAMILY OF VALENTINE RUNNALLS, 

OR RUNNELS, IN MASSACHUSETTS. 

This family is proved to be of independent origin, and entirely 
distinct from any other Runnels or Reynolds family in this country. 
Its earliest known ancestor was — 

3948. Valentine^ (Runnalls), b. as stated below; ** east away 
on his passage to America " ( ?) ; soon after settled in Marblehead, 
and m. Hannah Townshend. An old prayer-book, with version of 
the Psalms by Tate and Brady, Edinburg, 1 772, — now in posses- 
sion of his famil}', — tells its own story and his, in his handwriting, 
upon one of its fly-leaves, as follows : " This book I picked up in 
the wrack of the Argo, when I ware cast away, in the year of our 
Lord 178', Nov. 22d day." On the same leaf, '* Valentine Run- 
nail, his book, born Sept. 22, in the year of oui* Loard 1748, in 
Great Britain, in the county of Coarnwel (Cornwall), within 19 
miles of the Lands End, in the parrish of Golvail.** 

Uis immediate Ertglish origin is thus established, and we must 
concede this as a seeming exception to the general conclusion, 
arrived at in the Introduction, that Runnels or Hunnals is invaria- 
bly Scotch, though even in this case an earlier ancestor ma}' have 
emigrated from Scotland into England. 

If, as by one well authorized account, his daughter Hannah was 
the oldest child, he was perhaps m. and this child was b. in England, 



282 RUNNELS AND REYNOLDS MEMORIALS. 

and both wife and child suffered shipwreck, and were saved with 
him on their passage hither. We give the following, therefore, as 
the only authenticated order of his children, the birth date of the 
second only being known ; though it seems a little singular that 
the pronoun '' we " should not have been used instead of " I " on 
the leaf of the prayer-book, if his wife and child were cast away 
with him. On the supposition that he was alone when cast away, 
he must have married at Marblehead soon after reachiug that place 
from " the wrack of the Argo," and his son Valentine must have 
been his oldest child ; or^ he may previously have established his 
family at M., and was taking a subsequent cruise upon the ^^ Argo," 
not being at that time on his passage to this country. Children : — 

8949. Hannah; m. William Jaffrey, of Salem, aod lived in or near 

Worcester.

St. Valentine's day, 1873, residing at Beverly, at the age of 87, in

3994. Harmon (Runnels), alluded to near the close of Intro- 
duction to Part I (see p. 4), is only known to have been a colonel

in the South " His son — 

3995. Hiram G. was governor of the State of Mississippi, afterwards 
removed to Houston, Texas, and there d. Dec. 15, 1857. His 
widow signs her name "0. A. Runnels," in letter of Nov. 1(5. 
1868, and states that he left an only son, who also has an only 
son; but their names, and further information respecting the 
family, we have sought in vain to obtain, seemingly through an 
unwillingness, on their part, to acknowledge a connection with 
aught pertaining to the North ! 



APPENDIX. 285 

Another son of Col. Harmon may have been — 

3996. Hardin W. 

Who may, in turn, have been the father of — 

3997. Hiram Richard; known to have been the nephew of Ex-Gov,

4003. Gideon (Reynolds) is an old man in Hartford, Ct., 1870 ;

all the West, and especially in Illinois, as a most earnest and suc- 
cessful Christian and Sabbath-school worker. 



286 RUNNELS AND REYNOLDS MEMORIALS. 

4009. Daniel (Reynolds), b. about 1756 ; moved from Vermont

4010. John, b. 1796; m. Betsy , and d. in Bnmham, Sept. 1868, 

aged 72. Respecting his widow and family, we quote the fol- 
lowing from the ** New England Historical and Genealogical 
Register," for October, 1870 : — 

** A few months since a resolve was presented in the legisla- 
ture of Maine, in favor of granting a pension to Mrs. Betsy 
Reynolds, widow of John Reynolds, of Bnrnham^ and the fol- 
lowing facts wer« stated in support of the resolve ** ; viz, that 
she ** sent four sons, two sons-in-law, and one grandson to the 
war, neither of whom returned to tell their story. They all died 
defending our flag When the war closed, she was left with 
thirty-one orphan grandchildren, made so by the war. Her 
only surviving son, who is lame, volunteered, but was rejected 
on account of his lameness. Mrs. Reynolds is now depending 
on her own labor for her livelihood. Seven of her orphan 
grandchildren were taken Into the Bath asylum." 

We have made strenuous eflEbrts, while waiting for the printers, 
to obtain the names of all the patriotic sons of this family, but can 
get only the following : — 



JLL* 

»» 



4011. Christopher, **b. Sept. 1823; d. in the army, of consumption. 

4012. Oilman H., **b. Oct. 23, 1826; d. in the army, of neuralgia. 

4013. Jesse S., **b. Oct. 19, 1839; never enlisted, but was enrolled and 

stricken fk*om the rolls on account of lameness." The names 
of the " two sons-in-law" who went to the war, were : — 

1. Chandler K. Church; d. of disease in the service. 

2. Jambs T. Carr ; still living, and a preacher, in the State of Maine. 

The '* grandson," who enlisted, was shot in battle, name not 
given. 

This list (of Appendix G) might be indefinitely increased by 
adding soldiers of the Reynolds name, not previously noted in this 
genealogy, especially from the late adjutant generals' reports of 
Maine, New Hamsphire, Massachusetts, and other States ; as also 
from the triennial catalogues of several colleges, — ten of the name 
having graduated at Yale College (prior to 1852), three at Harvard 
University, and two, besides those already mentioned in this work, 
at Dartmouth College.

Just as the work of the printers was being completed, the author 
was favored with material for the following genealogy of Henry and 
Sarah (Bunker) Tthbetts, with the desire at least svggeskd^ b}^ some 
branches of the family, that it be herewith inserted. Having in- 
variably complied with such suggestions hitherto, he is very happy 
to make this, as the latest possible addition to his work, especially 
as several of the families here traced are found living near his 
home, and are reckoned among his most valuable acquaintances. 
He only regrets that their records did not come to hand early 
enough to be incorporated in their proper place in the main body 
of the work, under [2179]. He also avails himself of the oppor- 
tunity thus afforded of explaining more fully, as promised in the 
Preface (p. ix), how the "female lines," generally, through the 
book, are entered and carried out. 

Re-entering, from p. 183, the name of 

4046. Sahah (Bunker) [2179], she thus appears among the consecutive 
uumbers as being ot the second generation from (i. e. a cliild 
of) the common female ancestor, Sarah Hcinnels [2176]. She 
was b. Jan. 7, 1769, not 1766, as before given, and should there- 
fore change places with her brother Joseph [2180]. She m., 
2d, Henry Tebbetts, as before stated, the name bein^ found 
upon the old Barnstead records as *'Tibbfctts" and "Tibbits." 
He was three years older than his wife, and d. ^lay 19, 1818, in 
his 63d year. The additional lacts have been gathered that this 
second husband was also in ihe Revolutionary service before 
marriaiie, that he stood beside her first husband, Bradbury Sink- 
ler (or Sinclair), in his dying moments, and alterwards married 
her, as the widow of his deceased comrade. Their original 
location, on settling in Northfleld, N. H., was near the present 
*♦ Snaker road," a little north of the residence of her grandson,

INDEX 1. 



EXPLANATION AND SUMMARY. 



This Index iuclades all the Christian names, in the foregoing records, with 
which the surnames Bunnels or Beynolds, in some stales of their orthography, 
are to he supplied. 

The figures before the names indicate years of birth, as found in the main body 
of the work. 

Where these years were not known the spaces are usually left blank ; though 
in several cases, mostly in the Appendix, the year of earliest mention is given 
instead, or the supposed year of birth, when any data were found from which to 
reckon it, approximately. 

The figures after each name denote the consecutive number at which the 
birth is recorded, or the name first occurs. (See Preface, pp. VII and VIII). 

The whole number of names in this Index is 2,081 ; of which 24, marked thus 
(t), are the names of females, "marrying into the family," whose maiden sur- 
names were unknown, and who, therefore, could not be specified in Index II. 

Deducting these, we have left, as original ancestors, and their descendants, 
bearing the same or similar patronymics, 2,057; distributed as follows: —
