  • Notes 
    • As of Feb 2012, the missing piece of the Michigan jigsaw, has finally been found.

      Although the thrice married William is not found with an age to fully verify he is the William born 1756 to John and Elizabeth (Familton) Runciman, we do have a 1757 baptism for his first wife Elizabeth Campbell Millington, and the assumption is that he is of an age, which fits very nicely.
