  • Notes 
    • CAUTION - Several Current genealogies list this Benjamin wi th two wifes, a Mary ? and Anna Higgins. Accounts list Mar y as a widow of and administrator of the estate of Benjamin , and also Benjamin on his death leaving by will to his wif e "... Anna Runyan, all the goods she brought to me, and th e profits of my plantation, to bring up those of my childre n that are under age,..."

      It appears the records of two compleatly different Benjami n Runyon's have somehow been combined into one record.

      A person can't die twice and have two different estates, s o we have to be talking about two different Benjamin Runyon 's, one who married Mary ?, who later became Mary Fish, an d a second Benjamin who married Anna Higgins.

      Benjamin Runyon son of John Vincent Runyon was the Benjami n who married Mary ?, and was born on June 16,1704 in Pisca taway, Middlesex County, NJ., and died about 1776/7 in Some rset County, New Jersey.

      The Benjamin Runyon (Runyan) who married Anna Higgins had t o be born after 1704 because his will dated January 29, 177 6 and proved February 12, 1776 left to his "...Wife Anna Ru nyan, all the goods she brought to me, and the profits of m y plantation, to bring up those of my childern that are und er age...". To have more than one child under age in 1776 , we would have to estimate that this Benjamin was born bet ween 1725 and 1738.
