Concerning Mary Ann Porter, daughter of Theodore and Mary Porter:

she (probably, based on cemetery information) married Cyrus Runyan (aka Cyrus Benn), she (probably) died 10 Dec 1930 and she (probably) was the mother of Earl Claude Runyan (Benn) who was born in 1888 in Rimersburg and Frank T. Benn who was born in Rimersburg in 1890 (16); in the Federal Census theirs was found as the Cyrus N.
