    Gerald Martin:According to Trinity Anglican Church records in Cornwall, Ontario there are baptisms for Duncan Uriah Runnions in 1846 and Eli Runnions in 1851. These are the children of Henry and Ruth Runnions. In an interview many years ago with my grandparents they told me that my gg grandfather Duncan Runions was born in 1846 and died 11 May 1926. He was married to Alice Carbino. His brother Philip had many children and one of these was William Carbino who married Alice's younger sister Elizabeth and they lived in Potsdam NY. My grandmother was Beatrice Mary Smith Marvin and her mother was Cora Runions the daughter of Duncan and Alice. My grandmother told me that Duncan had three brothers,- Philip, Alexander and Eli. He had one sister named Margaret who died of TB. I was also told that their parents were Henry and Ruth Runions and that they came from England and owned a Tavern in Cornwall. I have a cousin Joan Lalonde who is connected through the Carbinos.
