Elisabeth Miller BETSY  Sex: Female
Birth Date 1784  Birth Place Virginia 
Death Date 1833  Death Place Richardsville, Warren County Ky 
Father Jacob Jubal Miller   Born: 1758 Died: 1833 
Mother Margaret Penner  Born: 1762 Died: 1833
Elisabeth Miller
Notes:
One reference lists her as Sarah Elizabeth Miller. She was born in Virginia. Some give her birth date 1784 and others 1787. One gave it 1792 - had she been born in 1792, she would have had her first son, Benjamin Runner born April 23, 1806, at age 14 which is unlikely. Her son, Henry Flora, in a census gave her birth as 1784 and said she was a native of Virginia. This would have made her 22 years old when her son Benjamin Runner was born. As her brother Henry was born in 1784, the more likely date would be 1787 (age 19 when Benjamin was born) and she would have been born between John Benjamin and James.  

Notes: Elizabeth was the second wife of Adam Runner (Second), and he was Lovis Runners brother, making Adam Runner (Second) the uncle of the four Honakers Elizabeths brothers and sisters married. The Honaker and Miller families were "close knit"! * When Polly Honaker married in 1810, consent for her marriage was given by her mother. In 1815, consent for Anna Honaker to marry was given by her step-father, Benjamin Jones. We can establish from these facts that Joseph Honaker had died sometime before 1810 and that his widow, Lovis Honaker, had married Benjamin Jones sometime between 1810 and 1815.  


Spouse: Adam Jr. Runner   Sex: Male
Birth Date 1751  Birth Place Pulaski, Virginia Colony 
Death Date 1816 OCT 17  Death Place Rays Branch, Warren County KY. 
Father Adam Runner Born: 1731 Died: 1795
Mother Elizabeth Sarah Miller Born:
Married: 1802 Oct 22 KY 
Adam Jr. Runner Notes: A Reeves family web site (www.brianreeves.com), which traces its ancestry back to Benjamin Runner, first son of Adam Runner, Jr. and his second wife, Elizabeth (Betsy) Miller, claims Adam Runner, Jr. was born in Pennsylvania.
However, the 1850 US Census Records indicate Adam Runner, Jr. was born in Pulaski, Virginia Colony (located not far from Wythe).
Adam Runner, Jr. married Elizabeth Peggy Penner, born in 1770 in Virginia.
She died about 1800 in Warren Co, KY.
Their first child, William A. Runner, was born in Montgomery County, VA.
Child number four, Adam Runner, and number six, Ann Runner, were born in Wythe County, VA.
The seventh child, John (Adam) Runner, was born 1795 in Wythe County, VA.
Adam Runner, Jr. married his second wife Sarah Miller on October 22, 1802 and they had six more children.
 
Individual Notes: DNA Tests Confirm Relationship Between Renners and Runners
According to the results from the DNA testing as part of the Renner/Runner/Lauffer Project,
Jacob Renner and Adam Runner Jr were related. The test subjects were myself
(from the Jacob Renner line) and a descendant of Adam Runner Jr, son of
Adam Renner/Runner of Montgomery/Wythe County, VA. I will be adding more
information on Adam Sr to this site a little later.
The Renner and Runner lines match exactly on 24 of 25 tested markers.
The lone mismatch is on one of the demonstrated faster-changing markers, a
situation weve seen several times in the Baker DNA Study, usually between lines where
the common ancestor is in the 1700s, as is the case here.
The DNA sequence is also, so far, very rare. These two tested lines match each other
but no one else in the entire FTNDA database. While the tests can prove
Jacob and Adam Jr were brothers, the combination of the tests showing the relationship
and the preponderance of historical/genealogical evidence would seem to make a very strong case
for that conclusion.
Ill not go into all the details at this time (Ill add them later)—here is briefly an overview of
some of the data:
1. The DNA tests show a relationship between Jacob Renner of Rockcastle County, KY, and Adam Runner Jr
of Warren County, KY, son of Adam Renner/Runner of Montgomery/Wythe County, VA.
2. The ages of Jacob and Adam Jr, and the known daughters of Adam Sr, are such that they could be siblings.
3. According to court documents from Wythe, Adam Sr had a son named Jacob, presumably the Jacob who is in the Wythe County tax lists near Adam.
4. Jacobs children were born in VA.
5. Southwest VA was a common place of origin for area families. For example, the Otts and
Fredericks, who settled in Rockcastle, and the Meeces of Pulaski, moved to KY from Wythe.
The former were neigbors of the Renner-Runners in Wythe.
6. Almost all of Adam Srs known children moved to KY after 1800. It looks as if at least one, perhaps two, of
Adams daughters were in Rockcastle in 1810 before moving on to Warren.
7. There is nothing that has come to light that contradicts Jacob being the son of Adam, including the
name differences. Both families, in VA and then in KY, were variously called Renner and/or Runner.
