66 1st. husband-Jacob Runkel. Married to Jacob Runkel and they went to Manton, Mich. to homestead a farm. He was a blacksmith and was in partnership with George Florence. Many people from Mercer County went to Michigan as the land was cheap. Jacob was clearing land and a log skidded into a sandbank. He lifted it and burst a blood vessel around his heart. The blood slowly leaked and he died a slow death. His baby daughter, Edith was only 8 months old when he died. He left Myrtle at age 10, Foster at age 5, and Harvey at age 3. He worked as a glass blower for awhile in Indiana. Because Jacob was bedfast, Edith would be put on his bed and he would entertain her. After he died, the family had a difficult time as she was used to so much attention. Rosa left Michigan after having a sale of the homestead. Rosa lived with Jacob's father and her own father and then returned to Mercer Co. . She left Michigan and returned to be near her family and lived with her family for a while but her sisters were teenagers and resented her being there so she moved out on her own. She was very poor but had great faith and raised her family in a time when women did not work. She was a midwife, did housekeeping for the sick and aged. She worked at Mersmans Table Co. She would walk quite a way to the barn space she rented, hitch her own buggy and drive to work. Many nights, she stayed up praying for food and necessities for her family and managed to survive until she remarried after WW 1 to George Buschur. Rosa buried five sons and two husbands. Willy and Russell died of complications of measles when Rosa was sick with them herself and a hired girl was caring for them all. Harold was run over by a wagon , Harvey died in a car accident as a teen and Foster died in jail with an attack of pancreatitis. She married Jacob Runkel and he was introduced to her through a cousin by mail. They corresponded while Jake was in the Coast Guard or Merchant Marines. Claudia has a pocket from his uniform with a letter he wrote to Rosa to introduce himself. They experienced many tragedies. Their two first children died at close to the same time ages 4 and 2 years of disease (possible Measels or dyptheria.) . They had a child killed as he was run over by a run-away logging wagon at age 3. She was left a young widow with four children to raise on her own.

She was a midwife for Dr. Fishpaw who was a nearby neighbor in Wabash. Her daughter Edith washed bandages and rolled them for Dr. Fishpaw. She and her sister Laura Enyart were very close all their lives. They lived very close in Wabash, Ohio. They shared yeast each baking every other day.

Also married to George Buschur whose genealogy is in Mercer Co History 1978 under Sophie, his sister. She and George met while they both worked at Mersmans. He had been a wheat thresher and told by co-workers that his wife was unfaithful. He came home unexpected and caught her with another man. He left and they were divorced. Rosa would not date him or consider marriage because he was a married/divorced and Catholic man. He left to go to World War I. He wrote her the whole time and told her they would marry if he returned. He was gassed in WW I and on disability. He died of Hodgins Disease, a type of cancer of the lymph nodes and probably related to the gas when he was a soldier. When he returned, they married. He was a very good step-father to her children but was never allowed to discipline them as they were 'her children'. Rosa and George had one child together, Mary, a change of life baby.

As a young girl, Rosa's mother died leaving a large family of children. Her father never remarried and he raised the family along with his girl's help. Her mother was pregnant and crawled up on a fence to call the father in for lunch from the fields. The gate swung, she fell and later died from the fall and the baby also. Usually men in those times were not expected to raise a family, yet he did it and was a very special person.

73 88-year-old man reported missing in Carlisle - Carlisle police have issued a missing persons report on Roland Hanna, 88, of the 200 block of North Bedford Street. Hanna was last seen about 3 p.m. Friday near the Weis Market in Carlisle, police said. He is 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighs 135 pounds and has blue eyes and gray hair. He was wearing a dark coat, brown hat, green pants and brown shoes. Police are concerned about Hanna's disappearance because of his age. He is reported to be hard of hearing.
The Patriot-News, Harrisburg, PA December 2, 1991

The body of an 88-year-old Carlisle man, who was reported missing last month, was found along railroad tracks in the borough. Roland Hanna of the 200 block of North Bedford Street was found by a Conrail employee at 9 a.m. Friday near the tracks in Carlisle, police reported. There were no signs of foul play, police said. Hanna was reported missing Nov. 29. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death, said Cumberland County Coroner Michael Norris.
The Patriot-News, Harrisburg, PA - December 29, 1991

CARLISLE An 88-year-old borough man whose body was found Friday along Conrail tracks in Carlisle's east end died of exposure, Cumberland County Coroner Michael L. Norris said yesterday.
"There is no evidence of foul play, and no significant injuries were found," Norris said after an autopsy on Roland Hanna of the 200 block of North Bedford Street. Norris said his "best belief" is that Hanna died soon after he was reported missing Nov. 29 by his sister-in-law, with whom he lived. Hanna disappeared after he left his home at 3 p.m. that day to go to a nearby grocery store. He suffered periodic memory lapses and investigators believe that led him to wander aimlessly. Norris said police received several reports of sightings of a man matching Hanna's description between 3 p.m. and nightfall Nov. 29, but searches were not successful and there were no confirmed sightings of Hanna after that day. Hanna's body was discovered about 9 a.m. Friday about 300 feet north of East North Street extended by a Conrail maintenance worker. The body was in a grassy area about 45 feet from the tracks, Norris said.

74 Adam Runkle was of German descent, and no doubt, more or less remotely, was related and traced his ancestry to the Runkels or Runckels who, in the early Middle Ages, were prominent in the Valley of the Lahn, a river tributary to the Rhine.  There can be no doubt as to the nationality of the Runkle stock: it was German.  It is necessary, however, to try to reconcile conflicting traditions as to the fatherland of this, our emigrant ancestor, before proceeding with the story of his life.  By a large portion of the family it is asserted that he came from Holland, and many of an earlier generation, now long passed away, were also of that belief.  As tending to support that tradition, we would mention a corresponding one among the new York and Pennsylvania Runkles: the generally acknowledged relationship - though what, not exactly known - between these different branches, and the assertion, by some of the older living members of the new York family, that within their remembrance the "Low Dutch" language was ordinarily spoken by their parents.  Of course, the speaking of the Holland language in the home of these early Runkles may be accounted for by the fact of their having made their homes in a section of the country almost exclusively settled by Hollanders.  The word Runkle, whatever the spelling, is distinctively German - the surname of an influential family belonging to the higher social order of Germany, the nobility.  It is not a Holland family name, nor is there within the pales of the Low Countries a family, tracing their descent entirely within, bearing the name of Runkle or one kindred thereto.  If then, Adam Runkle was a Hollander, one of his ancestors, possibly on account of religious persecution or for political reasons, must have left his German home for the enjoyment of the greater freedom offered by the Netherlands.  In addition to those who hold to the Holland tradition, there is a large number of Adam's descendants who are of the firm opinion that he was German through and through, and the tradition on which their belief is founded bears, equally with the other, the impress of ancestral approval.  By them it is stated that he came from the Valley of the Rhine, and by one member of the family it has been affirmed that his German home was in Baden.  As tending to reconcile these seemingly irreconcilable traditions, the suggestion has been made, and it seems to us a plausible one, that, from the fact that all the lower German districts near or bordering on the Netherlands, use the "Low Dutch," as distinguished from the "High Dutch" or German language, to a great extent may have arisen the misconception in the minds of some of our ancestors that Adam came from Holland: i.e. his speech proclaimed him a "Low Dutchman," while his nationality was really "High Dutch" or German.  The facts must not be overlooked that, by inter-marriages, the head of the House of Runkle and the ruling family of Holland were closely allied....

The Runkles of the past, like tose of the present day, carried out the Bible injunction, to increase and multiply: a family of a dozen being considered of hardly more than average size.  As a consequence of this prolificness and of the law of primogeniture, the prestige and property which made up the inheritance of the first-born were exceedingly small or entirely wanting in the portions of the younger children.  The father of our emigrating ancestor, owing to the above unfortunate conditions, in his noble descent from some earlier head of the family, had almost reached the bottom of the aristocratic scale.  About all he had to show for his illustrious ancestry was the "von" in front of his name, which carried with it no other significance than that, socially, the family "has seen better days," and that his branch had struck bottom.  While thus so poorly off as to title, with regard to fortune the Fates had been a little more auspicious; for it is said the father of Adam Runkle was a man of considerable property.  Our emigrant ancestor, however, was unfortunately a younger son, and at his father's death, except as to the "von" we have mentioned, inherited very little, if anything, and found himself a pensioner upon his brother's parsimonious bounty.  He was only a child when his father died; but he was so filled with a sense of injustice at being deprived of what he considered his rightful share in the estate, that he determined to make his way to America - the land of promise, to which so many of the neighboring youth has already emigrated.  There is a tradition that several of his brothers, at eh same or at a previous time, has also bidden adieu to their fatherland.  Be this as it may, somewhere between 1735 and 1745 - the exact time cannot be determined - Adam Runkle -, then a lad of not quite sixteen, knowing that his friends would refuse their consent to his making so long, and, at that time, so difficult a journey as the one to America, ran away from home, and, having joined a party bound for the same goal, with what money he had in a belt around his waist and with his other worldly possessions on his back, trudged his weary way, as one tradition has it, the two hundred miles necessary to reach the nearest point whence he could take passage to the Colonies.  The particular ports from and to which our ancestor sailed, it has been impossible to determine; but as Philadelphia was at that time the great haven for German emigrants, it is not unlikely that he there first trod the soil of his adopted country.  In conflict with the tradition of his having money with him, is another to the effect that, upon his arrival, his time was sold to pay for his passage.  Whatever be the right of the matter, certain it is that we now lose sight of him until about the year 1749, when, married to Mary Youngblood, we find him living, on his father-in-law's farm, in Old Amwell, New Jersey, near what is now the village of Wertsville.

 
Runkle, Adam (I34686)
 
75 Adam was born on the homestead farm in Hunterdon County, N.J., January 18, 1766.  While yet a young man he went to Warren (then part of Sussex County, N.J.), where he resided, no doubt, for a time with his brother William, who had previously settled there.  Later he purchased property in the vicinity of the present village of Asbury, near his brother's home, and there set up his household gods [sic].  After spending a number of years in bachelor freedom, he was won from his lonely state by the young daughter of John Richey.  Sarah Richey, born December 3, 1786, was over twenty years her husband's junior.  Upon the death of her father she inherited a fine farm in the Musconetcong Valley, to which her husband largely added by purchasing from her sister, Mrs. Dunham, an adjoining property. 
By this time Adam Runkle had become the owner of several large tracts of land, the cultivation of which was carried on, most probably, by slaves, of which he owned a number, but under his immediate supervision and direction. 
In addition to the management of his farm, the subject of this sketch was also a merchant, a surveyor, and a general man of affairs. 
He was one of the charter members of Olive Branch Lodge, No. 16, of Free Masons, which received a warrant from the Grand Lodge of New Jersey on January 9, 1799.  This lodge continued an active body until 1830; after that it languished until 1842, when it was stricken from the roll of New Jersey lodges. 
About 1811 Adam removed to Clarksville (Glen Gardner), N.J., and, toward the close of his life, to Easton, Penn., where he died, October 18, 1850, at the ripe old age of eighty-four years and nine months.  He was buried in the First Presbyterian Churchyard at Easton; but after the death of his widow, which occurred January 12, 1878, his remains were removed to the Burke burial-plot in the Easton cemetery, where, side by side, the husband and wife are now sleeping.
Adam Runkle was a man of medium height, thick-set (like his brother John), of a jovial disposition, communicative, and given to pleasantries in conversation.  A man of unusual intelligence, he was most highly respected by the entire community in which he lived.
Two daughters were his only offspring; and to them he gave the best educational advantages.  At that time Philadelphia was the center of refinement; and therefore in a boarding-school in that city he placed his children: taking and bringing them himself in the large family carriage, and frequently stopping, on his way thither or on the homeward journey, to spend a night with his brother John in Amwell.
The two children of Adam Runkle were:
1. Eliza
2. Matilda

I?M FREE

?Don?t grieve for me, for now I?m free,  I?m following the path God laid for me.  I took his hand when I heard him call, I turned my back and left it all.  I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work or play.  Tasks left undone must stay that way.  I found that peace at close of day,  If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy.  A friendship shared, a laugh a kiss, Ah yes, these things I too will miss.  Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.  My life?s been full, I?ve savored much.  Good friends, good times, a loved one?s touch.  Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, don?t lengthen it now with undue grief.  Lift up your hearts and share with me, God wanted me now; He set me free.? ? Larry Neumann
