Descendants of Eliza Runyan

Chapter 2.8 of Part II, Descendants of John Harris

By Garda M. Hodgson


CHILDREN OF ELIZA RUNYAN AND JESSE K. GIBBONS
(Child #8 of Sarah Harris and Jeremiah Runyan)

Eliza Runyan3 (Sarah Harris3, John2, Isaac1) was born in about 1815 in Rutherford (now Cleveland) County, North Carolina. According to her tombstone, she was age 89 when she died on March 22, 1904, thus she would have been born in 1815. However, 1815 was also the year her brother, Reuben, was born unless a mistake was made in reporting his age in the census. Also her brother, James M. Runyan, was born in 1816. It appears an error was made in determining the year of birth of some of the children, but it is not clear where.

Eliza married Jesse K. Gibbons, son of John K. Gibbons and Hannah J. Singletary. He was born in about 1812 in South Carolina, and died on November 1, 1886, at age 74 years. They were buried in Sulphur Springs Methodist Church Cemetery, in Patterson Springs, North Carolina. They reportedly had twelve children, but almost half of them died young.
