      Place of death: No. 8, Martin County, KY; Female, White, Widow, birth: 25 Aug 1826, Kentucky; Age: 85 years, 2 months. Occupation: housewife; cause of death: senility. Father: Adam Runion, born in Kentucky; mother: Polly Runyon, born in Kentucky. Informant: L. G. Farly, Pilgrim, KY. Burial: Farley Cemetery, 29 Aug 1911. Undertaker: Gus Underwood, Pilgrim, KY. Filed: 28 Aug 1911 b Bertran Farley.
      Note: I believe the parents may be erroneous here. I'm leaning toward Henry Runyon as her father.

      Place of death: No. 8, Martin County, KY; Female, White, Widow, birth: 25 Aug 1826, Kentucky; Age: 85 years, 2 months. Occupation: housewife; cause of death: senility. Father: Adam Runion, born in Kentucky; mother: Polly Runyon, born in Kentucky. Informant: L. G. Farly, Pilgrim, KY. Burial: Farley Cemetery, 29 Aug 1911. Undertaker: Gus Underwood, Pilgrim, KY. Filed: 28 Aug 1911 b Bertran Farley.
      Note: I believe the parents may be erroneous here. I'm leaning toward Benjamin & Martha Runyon or Henry Runyon as her father. First, an Adam Runyon married a Martha Harris on 31 Oct 1825 in Pike County, KY. Then, an Adam Runyon married a Welthy Aldridge, the daughter of James & Catherine Aldridge in Lawrence County, Kentucky. I do not see a Polly & Adam Runyon. Furthermore, in the 1850 census, Lewis Runyon, the son of Benjamin & Martha Runyon, resided with William Clay & Mary "Polly" (Runyon) Farley. Wouldn't it make more sense that Lewis, age 19, would have been a brother to Mary and that would explain why he was living there? If so, then Polly Farley here is the daughter of Benjamin & Martha Runyon.
