   LB_00  Eden Merseilles/Elizabeth Runyon
          Glenn Bingham found many of the dates and the surname Runyon on the
          monuments at the Broad St., Presbyterian Cem., Bridgeton, NJ.
          Earliest record of the family seems to be in Bergen Co., NJ, thus far.
          Curiously, there is a Doty association there.

Earth and humanitarian projects should be right behind,
