Runkle Family Descendants


Last updated:  30 May 2015

The New Jersey Runkles begin with Adam Runkle and Mary Youngblood.  Their children were:

Mary Runkle, b.c. 1750, Amwell, Hunterdon Co., NJ
John Runkle, b. 29 Aug 1752, Amwell, Hunterdon Co., NJ
William Runkle, b. 1755
Abraham Runkle, b. 14 Jan 1757
Sarah Runkle, b. 15 Feb 1761
Jacob Runkle, b.c. 1763 or 1764, Annandale, Hunterdon Co., NJ
Margaret Runkle, b. 1765
Adam Runkle, b. 18 Jan 1766, Annandale, Hunterdon Co., NJ.

This New Jersey family, and Runkles in other states, are detailed in the 1899 book titled "The Runkle Family," by Ben Van Dorn Fisher.  The original book is out of print, but a copy is available at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.  Reprint copies can be obtained from the Higginson Book Company, among others.

Our Runkle Family Association is unable to put a detailed genealogy of the New jersey Runkles on the Internet.  However, a comprehensive database of the Runkles has been produced by Steve Pritt, and is available here:

The Runkle Project

Although the 'The Runkle Project' website states that the data it contains was provided by June R. Grove from her book "The Runkle Family of York County, Pennsylvania, and Associated Families," it also contains the data from Van Dorn's book on the New jersey Runkles, mentioned above, as well as the generous contributions from other Runkle researchers throughout the United States.
