    • The death of Milton D. L. Runkle, one of the county's oldest and most respected citizens, occurred Wednesday night, Oct. 2, 1918, at the University Hospital, Charlottesville, where he was under treatment for tumor of the neck, he having gone there for treatment the last time four weeks ago Monday. The body was conveyed to his late home at Geer Thursday and the funeral will be held there Friday at 2 p.m., with burial at Mr. Joseph Lawson's
      Mr. Runkle was a most estimable man and citizen. He was 81 years old April 30 last. He was a venerable member of the Mt. Vernon Church, a veteran and faithful member of the Masonic fraternity, having for years been a pastmaster and treasurer of Piedmont lodge No. 50, A. F. and A. M. His occupations were farmer and mechanic. In the civil war Mr. Runkle belonged to Co. D, 34th Virginia Regiment, and was promoted to its first lieutenant. He was a man whose courage was limitless, and his daring deeds of which he himself was too modest to speak were Spartanlike.
      Mr. Runkle's death ends an ideal marital union last 53 years. His sorrowing widow before marriage was Miss Roberta Beadles. The surviving children are: Mr. A. M. E. Runkle, Charlotteville: J. A. Runkle, Geer; Mrs. B. A. Deane, Quinque; Mrs. C. M. Naylor, Elkton; Mrs. Lulu Powell, Buffalo, N.Y.; Mrs. O. A. Bateman, Martinsburg, W.Va.; and Mrs. H. C. Via, Geer.
