Looking for RUNYON, Harrison of Tennessee, USA

Journal by LeFloren

Harrison Runyon, born in Tennessee. I am trying to verify that William Henry Harrison RUNYON b. about 1851, Lawrence Kentucky, is the father of McKinley RUNYON b. 18 Nov 1897.

McKinley (Mc Kinley) RUNYON had four children by Sadie Jewell b. 13 Apr 1900: Sherman, Willis Carson, Geraldine, and Christopher Columbus RUNYON. Harrison RUNYON is listed as the father of McKinley on the 1920 Federal Census but I cannot find a good thread for Harrison's parents. What is making it harder is not having a spouse's name for Harrison.

Hello LeFloren,
So you need a complete list of children of William Harrison Runyon/Runion and Sarah Aldridge.
Doesn't it give all the children's names on Harrison's death certificate. Jan

What does it say on McKinley's draft card. Does that give his parent's names. We're lucky in Australia WW1 enlistments tell you just about everything. I can't even find a death for Sarah, nee Aldridge. I think she died after 1879 after Adam was born and your Harrison re-married another Sarah because if she was the mother of McKinley she would have been 42. Not unusual but that's a big gap from 1879 to 1897 It would be 1896 if Sherman 1896-1934 is his brother. Have you looked at the 1934 death of the brother?
I think it likely William Harrison is McKinley's father but unlikely Sarah Aldridge is his mother.

I just looked at Green Meadows death certificate. You're right they don't give children. But they do give spouse.
