102 A Johnstown, Ohio, couple, formerly of Monroe County, parents of eight children, were instantly killed shortly before 7 a.m. last Thursday [June 13, 1946] where their westbound sedan was struck by a southbound doubleheader Pennsylvania freight train at the Morse Road grade crossing at Columbus.
Victims of the crash were: Wayne Frum, 52, a car loader at the Columbus Coated Fabrics Corp., and his wife, Mrs. Virginia Dougherty Frum, 46. They resided at Route 1, near Johnstown, where they moved to a farm home about six months ago from Columbus.
The train, on Big Four tracks with a Big Four pilot, apparently struck the rear end of the automobile. The wreckage was carried about 75 feet south of the crossing, then rolled down an embankment.
Both bodies were thrown from the car by the impact. Frum's body was found near the wreckage and his wife's about 30 feet down the tracks. One of her shoes was found near the wreckage, and the other 20 feet from her body.
The crossing has no watchman or flasher lights, but there is a clear view approaching from the east. The couple had driven across the Pennsylvania tracks, on the easterly side of the double grade crossing, and were struck as they started over the Big Four right-of-way.
Frum suffered a broken neck, fractured skull and internal injuries, and his wife a crushed skull, internal hemorrhages and multiple fractures.
The automobile was demolished.
Sheriff's deputies said the Pennsylvania freight was an "extra" on Big Four tracks because of a minor accident north of the crossing.
Mr. and Mrs. Frum are survived by eight children; a son, Donald F. Frum, of Jerusalem, and seven daughters; Mrs. Nan Kirkbride of Jerusalem, Mrs. Mary V. Beculhimer, of Pikesville, Ky., and Misses Stella, Dorothy, Martha, Charlotte and Carolyn Frum, of the home.
Mrs. Frum is also survived by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert T. Dougherty of Jerusalem, one sister, Mrs. Chas. Schade, of Carnegie, Pa.; two brothers, Robert Dougherty of Canton, Frank Dougherty of Jerusalem.
Mr. Frum is also survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frum of Morgantown, W. Va.; two sisters, Elizabeth of Columbus, and Mary of Morganstown, W. Va; and three brothers; William of Columbus, Herbert of Syracuse, N. Y., and George Frum, of Morganstown.
Double funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at one o'clock at the Jerusalem Church of Christ. Interment was in Jerusalem cemetery.
He was the son of Wm S. & Stella Summers Frum.

114 A Vancouver motorcyclist died Tuesday morning in a head-on crash with a tractor-trailer after the motorcycle crossed the centerline on state Highway 14 east of Washougal, according to Washington State Patrol.

Matthew Runkle, 40, was traveling east on a Yamaha motorcycle at about 11:15 a.m. when he struck the tractor-trailer, which was loaded with recycled cans, WSP spokesman Will Finn said. The motorcycle then caught fire.

A WSP trooper patrolling the area was one of the first to respond to the crash, which occurred just west of the Clark-Skamania county line and east of the Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge.

?He saw the plume of smoke as he was coming around the corner,? Finn said.

The trooper quickly called for more resources while the driver of the tractor-trailer, David Newman, 36, of Tacoma grabbed his fire extinguisher, Finn said. An off-duty firefighter who also happened upon the scene used the trooper?s fire extinguisher to help Newman quickly douse the flames.

Runkle was pronounced dead at the scene.

Newman was taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center with neck pain, Finn said. His vehicle was towed from the scene.

The two-lane stretch of highway was closed for about two and a half hours while WSP investigators documented the scene and collected evidence. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

The Clark County Sheriff?s Office and East County Fire & Rescue also responded to the scene. The tractor-trailer reversed to get away from the fire and backed into a stopped vehicle. The Washington State Patrol considers that a separate crash.

Runkle previously worked as a production supervisor at Ventura Foods in Portland, according to his Facebook page.

His death marks the 28th fatality on Clark County roadways so far this year.

136 About Johann Peter Rockefeller
Added by joykin 29 Sep 2008
The name is an Americanized version of the German "Rokkenfelder" or "Rockenfeller," meaning "from Rockenfeld." This indicates the latter origins of the family, which can be traced back to the villages of Ehlscheid, Segendorf and Fahr, (all suburbanised to Neuwied). These are neighbored to the small settlement of Rockenfeld - part of Neuwied's quarter Feldkirchen.[2] In Germany, ''Rockenfeller'' is known as a family name. The earliest known ancestor is ''Goddart Rockenfeller'' (1590, Fahr). The Rockefeller family is descended from ''Johann Peter Rockenfeller'' (16821763), grandson of Goddart. He immigrated to New Jersey from the German Palatinate in 1723 and acquired large landholdings.

The ship Johann and his sons came to America on was intended to land at NY Harbor, but the advers heavy northeast winds drove them south to Phil. Pa. From there they started to go overland to the Hudson River and to East Camp, NY but on the way many of them found the land of West NJ so well suited to farming they settled in Hunt. Co., NJ.

Johann Peter Rockefeller an ancestor of the Rockefeller family was an early plantation owner in Amwell. Although a monument erected in 1906 by John D. Rockefeller stands in the cemetery at Larison's Corner, it does not mark the actual family ground, which is a half acre set aside by will and mentioned in successive property transfers. It is located on the original "Plantation" now owned by Mr. Irving Grace. Hunterdon County maps of the 1850s show its location but it is seemingly forgotten by the family and unknown to many of us.

137 Abraham, Adam Runkle's fourth child, was born January 14, 1757.  His childhood and youth were spent on his father's farm near Annandale.  We know nothing concerning this period of his life, but it is safe to presume that, like his brothers, he did a full share of each day's work.  As many of his relatives and friends were in Amwell, he, no doubt, frequently visited there, and thus became acquainted with Sarah Stout, born April 4, 1756, and to whom, on April 19, 1779, he was married.  He purchased a farm in West Amwell Township, Hunterdon County, N.J., about a mile south of the present village of Wertsville, now owned by Vandyke Blackwell; and there, in the neighborhood where his mother's girlhood days had been spent, following the quiet routine of a farmer's wife, one after another the milestones of vigorous manhood and old age were passed, until, having left far behind him the full allotment of four-score years, on April 11, 1845, his journey of life came to an end.  He was buried in the old cemetery about half a mile from Wertsville; and upon the death of his wife, December 29, 1847, her remains were placed beside him.  Abraham had four children.

Concerning Sarah, wife of Abraham Runkle, we have the following anecdotes: She was exceedingly domestic in her tastes, and very seldom went from home.  On one of those rare occasions, while on her way to visit relatives living at a distance, she had her husband stop at some neighbors', about a mile away, and earnestly requested them to keep an eye on the chimney of her home - it being all that was visible - as she feared the building might burn during her absence.

At one period of her life she became thoroughly possessed with the idea that she was going to die.  Though in good physical health, she would immediately take to her bed and send a summons for her husband and friends to hear her last wishes; then, with a melancholy relish, she would give her dying directions, interlarded with many pious exhortations.  At first the sadness of the whole affair brought to the sorrowing friends its full weight of woe: their tears seemed to whet the appetite of the departing one for this kind of enjoyment, and thereafter she frequently gratified this morbid taste.  Finally her dying became so monotonous, that, her husband determined to try and break her of so deleterious a habit.  Not long after his resolution had been taken, he was one day summoned from the field with the accustomed announcement, "Mother is dying again, and wants you to come in right away."  He went; and, as he entered the room, saw his wife lying on the bed, presumably on the verge of dissolution, and only awaiting the arrival of the long-suffering husband in order to begin with her last wishes.  As soon as she saw him, she said: "Oh, Abram! I'm going to die; I know I'm going to die: and what will become of the poor children?"  Her husband, with a brutally cheerful face, consolingly replied: "Don't worry about them, mother; they'll be well taken care of.  I've thought all about that, and have concluded to marry Mary Jane Smith."  Now, this Mary Jane Smith was a meddlesome, gossipy old maid of the neighborhood, who bore a not too enviable reputation, and a person whom, above all others, the good wife thoroughly abhorred.  As soon as Abraham unfolded his comforting plan, Sarah, with health fully restored, but temper as surely gone, began to get out of bed, at the same time giving her luckless spouse a far different style of exhortation than had been her original intention.  "What!" she said, "you marry that hussy?  Let me tell you, Abram Runkle, she shall never be the mother of my children."

Profiting by the entirely too satisfactory results of her last dying experience, Mrs. Runkle did not again summon her friends to her death-bed until after her husband's departure, when, feeling assured that he was safe from Mary Jane's tenacious clutches, she was resigned to leave the world in which she had remained so long from a sense of duty to her children.

We do not wish it to be understood from the above anecdote that Sarah Runkle made her husband and family unhappy, for such is not the case: she was a devoted, faithful wife, and loving, tender mother.  The melancholia with which, for a time, she was troubled gradually passed away; and for many years before her death, all that remained in the memory of her friends concerning it was the story we have told, which, no doubt, was considered too good to sink into oblivion.

141 According to the best information that has been received at the time of this writing, October 1, 1909, it seems correct to state that Johann Peter Rockefeller was born in Sagendorf, Rhineland, Germany, on Oct. 17, 1681. (Our York County immigrant's father was born in 1683.) On Dec. 1, 1767 he (Peter Rockefeller) married Maria Remegan of Sagendorf, and had the following children: Johann William, Johann Peter, Catherine, Anna Christina and Marie Eva. On Oct. 27, 1720 he married Elizabeth Christina Runkel and by this marriage had one child, Catherine, in Germany and the following in America: Ann, Elizabeth, William and Mary. They evidently immigrated to America some time between the birth of Catherine in Germany, Mar. 9, 1722 and the baptism of Ann in Somerville, New Jersey, June 17, 1724. Johann Peter first settled in Somerset Co., N.J. and was engaged in agriculture. Later he removed to Amwell, Hunterdon Co., and in 1729 purchased a tract of land near Copper Hill in the vicinity of Flemington, N.J., where he lived during the remainder of his life. He was one of the foremost citizens of Amwell (now Raritan Township) and died about 1765.
