    • RESEARCH_NOTES:
      1. Source noted below under "Sources_Misc" note parents of Sarah are Caleb and Hannah (Smith) Knapp. Variant parents are shown in the note below from "Ancestry of Long Island."

      2. "Abstracts of Stamford Probate Records," Book One, compiled by Spencer P. Mead: "Rundle, William, late of Greenwich, Inventory taken June 11, 1733, by John Hobby and Jabez Mead, and filed Jan. 1, 1734, by Sarah Rundle, administratrix, page 85. Mar. 7, 1737, decedent's widow now being deceased, his four children, two sons and two daughters, all under fourteen years of age, had Samuel Rundle appointed their guardian, page 97."

      3. FHL book 929.273 R871rg "Ancestry of Long Island and Greenwich 1667-1992," by Rundall, Austin, Brownhill, Parker (poorly punctuated), pp. 327-332:
      "William Rundle2, William 1.
      There is some confusion about the wife of William2 Rundle. It's been said she was the widow Reynolds when marrying William. The Nicholas Knapp Genealogy, pg. 13, says Sarah Knapp, "m. 1-4-1718/9 Peter Renolls? 2nd 4-12-1722, William Rundell..." However, "the History & Desc. of John & Sarah Reynolds," pg. 49 says "Peter Reynolds m.Sarah Knapp Jany. 14, 1718, died Feby. 5, 1743-44." If Peter's death date is accurage, William's wife could not be the widow Reynolds. Pag 9-10 of Knapp has a Sarah (D-11) dau. of Joshua & Abigail (Butler) Knapp, b. 5-19-1733. (See D.A.R. - she m. 1-14-1769, Peter Semell.??)" The dates are those of the Sarah who m. William2 Rundle, and it is his death date. It is obvious more research is needed to discern which Sarah Knapp was the wife of William2.
