I believe we have corresponded before. I had some contact with you about our ancesters but seem to have misplaced the info or lost it on my computer. I just got a little time to again sign on to this site. I of course am the grandson of Frank Rundell (Francis Newton Rundell)whose parents were Jesse Rundell and Mary Jane Thompson Amidon Rundell. I would be very interested to know where Jesse and Mary Jane are buried and who their parents were. I am just beginning to get into researching this branch of the family. We were in Clymer a couple of weeks ago and found the graves of Elmer E. Rundell (1873-1958) the brother of Frank and Milton and also a younger Elmer E. Rundell (1893-1927) The younger Elmer was apparently the son of Francis N. Rundell(Frank) and a Florence Rundell who was apparently his first wife. Young Elmer was apparently in the First World War as his grave is marked with "Co C 312 Reg 78 Div AEF". I never before heard anyone speak of this young Elmer. He would have been my fathers half brother so seems strange unless he was a "Black Sheep" of the family. Couldn't find any more familiar gravestones although there were a couple of Amidon stones but didn't seem to relate to anyone I had knowledge of. Very fascinating stuff trying to find "needles in a haystack". There doesn't seem to be anyone still alive who knows much about more distant relatives or who is buried where so I need to latch onto any little bit of info I can find.
