2 Mar 1713 father Vincent RUNYON died (age 68) at Piscataway, Middlesex, New Jersey; Vincent died without a will (Intestate) December, 1713. He left gold, silver, a canoe, silver spoons, etc. He is buried in the Runyan Cemetery in Edison, NJ. [is probate record is to be found among unrecorded wills, (WILLS, N.J., Vol 3, p. 1429). The administratrix of his estate was named Martha, from which some infer that he was married twice, since his wife was named Ann in the marriage license. But the probability is that his wife's full name was Ann Martha Boutcher, since the eldest child of her eldest child (son John) was named Martha and her son Vincent also gave that name to a daughter. These children, whose mother's forenames were different, evidently were named for thier grandmother, which early use of this name tends strongly to demonstrate that Vincent was married only once. There is no other actual evidence to the contrary.]
