1 Jacob, the next child of the emigrant, was born on his father's farm near Annandale, in the year 1763 or 1764, and, like his brothers, was early put to work; like them, too, he seldom enjoyed, unless it was without his father's consent, pleasures more exhilarating than those obtained while in attendance at the religious services held in the meeting-houses of the neighborhood.
It was a general custom for the young people of the last century to faithfully appear at all "the preachings" held within a considerable radius of their homes.  At that time churches were not so numerous nor meetings as frequent as in our day.  The time before the morning service and at the noon recess was generally spent in greeting friends, making new acquaintances, and in social converse.  It was then that the country's welfare was discussed, the neighborhood news circulated, and the state of the crops passed upon.  It also not unfrequently happened that the less godly young men improved this opportunity to exchange horses - "swapping" they called it; the young girls exchanged confidences, and the young lovers vows.  We thus see that, at these meetings which our forefathers attended, the spiritual and worldly affairs of the congregation were strangely comingled.  It was, no doubt, while attending services similar to those described, in the Reformed meeting-house in what is now Lebanon, N.J., that Jacob Runkle became acquainted with "Effy" EickEuphemia Eick, born November 21, 1772, was the daughter of Philip Eick, a farmer living about a mile and a half to the northward of New germantown, N.J., and who, it is said, holding a commission in the Revolutionary Army, took part in the Battle of Monmouth.
Jacob soon began paying his addresses to the young girl we have mentioned, and being successful in his suit, on May 26, 1791, he was married.  The young husband remained on or in the vicinity of his father's place near Annandale until after the deaths of his parents.  He then, on June 29, 1805, purchased the homestead from the acting executors of his father's estate, and there continued to reside until his own death, September 8, 1824.  His wife survived him a little over ten years, passing away December 17, 1834.  They are buried side by side in the same private graveyard with his parents. 
Jacob Runkle was of medium height and slightly heavy set.  He was a good farmer, and by his thrift, and possibly rather too strict economy, succeeded in raising a large family, and besides in saving a considerable competence.
"Effy" Runkle was a tall, large, and fine-looking woman, of far more than the average intelligence, and much of her husband's success, no doubt, was due to her capable management.
To this couple were born thirteen children:
1. Philip
2. John E.
3. Mary
4. Susan
5. Catharine
6. Sallie
7. Jesse
8. Eliza
9. Ralph E.

2 Margaret, born in 1765, passed the early years of her life in much the same uneventful fashion as did her brothers and sisters.  When it was she first met young Jacob Gearhart we do not know, but certain it is that the slight, gentle mannered youth was not long in storming the citadel of "Peggy's" affections.  Jacob, born in 1763, was a son of that Jacob who ten years before came over from Rotterdam in the good ship "Patience."  Jacob, Senior, settled in Warren County, N.J., and during the Revolution rendered valuable service to his country's cause.  He later removed to Northumberland County, Penn., where he died in 1813.  It might have been his father's removal to the "Keystone State" that caused Jacob, Junior, to also turn his steps in that direction.  Be that as it may, about 1793, a few years after his marriage, he purchased four hundred acres of land covered with forests, about a mile from the present town of Danville, Penn., where, having built himself a home, he continued to reside until his death.
In appearance Margaret Runkle much resembled her sisters; she was quiet and unassuming, and to he husband proved ever a faithful, loving wife and helpmate.  She died September 30, 1843, and is buried in Mt. Vernon Cemetery, not far from her home.
Jacob Gearhart was in appearance a little under medium height, and was rather fastidious in his dress.  He always wore a ruffled shirt and a cut-away coat, which latter, toward the close of his life, conformed in make to the Quaker fashion.  In addition to his old-time style of dressing, Jacob Gearhart wore a white fur hat, which still more attracted attention to the wearer.  He was very fond of fine horses, and on his visits to the new Jersey friends always drove a handsome span.  He was a very influential man in his community, and for many years was associate judge of Northumberland County.  In religion he was an ardent Methodist, and often, though not a licensed preacher, would lead the services, reading and explaining the Scriptures.  His home was the stopping-place of ministers of all denominations; and in the old barn, still standing, Bishop Asbury, the first methodist Episcopal Bishop in the United States, once preached.  Connected with Mr. Gearhart's family by blood and marriage are sixty preachers and wives of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
Politically the subject of this sketch was a strong Democrat; and it was at his house that Andrew Jackson, while President of the United States, requested Simon Cameron to get the Pennsylvania delegation committed to the support of Martin Van Buren.
Mr. Gearhart, during the closing years of his life, was quite a sufferer from dyspepsia [Note: A condition characterized by upper abdominal symptoms that may include pain or discomfort, bloating, feeling of fullness with very little intake of food , feeling of unusual fullness following meals, nausea, loss of appetite, heartburn, regurgitation of food or acid, and belching. ref., viewed 28 Jul 2018]; and on his visits to friends, as a guard against his dread enemy, he always carried his own bread with him.  He died August 2, 1841; and at his funeral, as the large procession of his friends and neighbors followed his remains to their last resting-place in the nearby church-yard, all solemnly joined in singing a hymn to the tune of "Old Hundred."  For over half a century the old Judge (as he was called) and his wife have been sleeping in that quiet burial-place; but the sweet, pervading influence of their lives still continues, and the religious seed sown by them so often in the days gone by has brought forth more than a hundred-fold.
To this couple there were born three children:
1. John
2. Jacob
3. Harmon

At the University of Oklahoma, he was captain of the tennis team and won numerous championships, especially in doubles play where he achieved a national ranking.
He married Alice Escoe in 1937. They made their home in Oklahoma City. He began his life-long career as an advertising executive in the early 1930's, when he began employment with Ray Glenn Advertising Agency. In 1946, he purchased the agency and became its president and chief executive officer. Through his creative genius and hard work, he built the Lowe Runkle Company into the largest advertising agency of its time in Oklahoma, and one of the largest in the southwestern United States. He has served as president of the Southwestern Association of Advertising Agencies and Governor of the Central Region of the American Association of Advertising Agencies and on the Board of Trustees of the American Association of Advertising Agencies Pension and Profit Sharing Plan.

He was honored by the American Judicature Society with the Herbert Lincoln Harley award in 1973, as the American having contributed the most to the judicial process, the first time the award was given to an Oklahoman or to a non-lawyer. In 1982, Lowe Runkle was inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and was the first advertising executive to be so honored. Late in his life, Lowe also took up bird carving and through his artistic skill became notable for this. He spent his summer vacations in Jackson, Wyoming, and enjoyed fly fishing.
He will be greatly missed by his family and his friends as a warm, thoughtful and considerate husband and father, and a man who was more than generous with his time and his special gifts.

9 Sarah was born February 15, 1761.  In the old-fashioned farm-house of her father, nestled between the Jersey hills, she grew up a tall and slender maiden, skilled in all domestic duties, and hearing only faint echoes of the strife then waging between the Colonies and the mother country.  Many of the pleasures, which seem so necessary to the young lives of to-day, were unthought of in that long ago, and even the quilting bees and apple frolics, then so much in vogue, were for Sarah and her sisters seldom tasted though much-coveted joys.  Thus, with only religious services to break the even tenor of her life's existence, this gentle, quiet girl passed the years of youth and early womanhood.
From the beginning of 1787, at the meetings we have mentioned, the stalwart form and handsome face of young Aaron Van Buskirk with increasing frequency began to be seen.  He was born October 10, 1763, and at the time we mention had already arrived at that period of manhood when in the human breast the fires of love are most easily kindled.  His father lived near Trenton, N.J., and as, on his faithful steed, the young man so regularly put in an appearance at the services in "The Old Frame Bethlehem Church" (now called "The New Stone"), people began to seek a reason for his religious devotion; nor were they long in arriving at a solution of the problem, for soon it was discovered that on the women's benches he had found a magnet far more attractive that the parson's* long discourses.  At the same time the tell-tale flush upon Miss Sarah's cheek proved that thoughts of heaven not only freed her mind from thoughts of earth; and when the tedious services were at last concluded, many a pleasant hour, no doubt, they spent together at the noon recess strolling under the trees of the neighboring grove.  How swiftly passed the time as they chatted there about their week-day toils and of the growing attachments of their young companions!  Soon their own future, we can feel assured, engrossed their thoughts, and thus the old, old story, ever new, again found repetition.  However near the truth may be these, our surmises, as to the birth of their friendship and its change to love, we know that the affection Sarah kindled in young Aaron's breast burned so fiercely that his lips were soon compelled to give it utterance.  No clouds, no frowning of stern parents obscured the happiness of our lovers, and on January 7, 1788, their marriage vows were spoken.  Aaron took his bride to a home near the present village of Milford, N.J., and later purchased and removed to a farm in what was then known as the Pequest Valley, in that part of Sussex since set off as Warren County, N.J.  On this farm, near the present village of Danville, cheered by the company of their two sturdy boys, Aaron and Sarah Van Buskirk traveled life's pathway together until March 19, 1825, when the death angel claimed the husband and father, and left the hearth-stone desolate.  The remaining years of Mrs. Van Buskirk's life were spent at the home of her then surviving son.  It was at his house, at that time in Belvidere, N.J., that on April 12, 1846, she received her call from earth.  To this event, always a sad one, the tragic manner of its occurrence gave additional grief to those who knew and loved her.  By reason of the infirmities which age had placed upon her, Mrs. Van Buskirk, for a considerable period previous to her death, remained for the greater part of the time in her room, and was, while retaining possession of her mental faculties, to a great extent helpless.  On the last day of her life, while alone in her apartment, and supposably dozing in her chair before the open grate, in some manner her clothing caught fire, and, ere assistance could arrive, so badly was she burned that in a very few hours death relieved her from her sufferings.  She was buried by the side of her husband in the old village graveyard by the Danville Church, where, unmindful of the changes which have swept from the face of nature all vestige of the home in which so many of the hopes, the joys, and sorrows of her life had found their birth and their fruition, for half a century, she now has been at rest.
To this worthy couple, whose lives we have so briefly outlined, were born three children:

i. Nancy
ii. Daniel
iii. John

* Rev. John Hanna.
