Re: Carl Rundquist m. Mabel Erickson
I am also doing research on a similar name.
The Swedish American Genealogist in Winter Park Florida gave me the following information.When the families left Swedentheir actual name was Rundquist or Ronnquist.The name I am searching is spelled Runquist.I have seen it written Ronquist in some of the bible records. The person I am researching would be my GGGrandfather Peter Runquist/Ronquist in Hanover County VA. He was born 1-19-1789
probably in Sweden and died before 1850 in Hanover County or King William Co. VA
Because he settled in VA the name was pronouncedRunk-us.We Virginians talk funny anyway.
