  Phony Benoni: Some confusion here. "American Chess Bulletin" for 1931, p.170, gives his name as <G E Rundell> of Kansas City. However, Dr. P. G. Keeney in the "Cincinnati Enquirer", October 18, 1931, gives <Dan Rundell> of Kansas.

  Phony Benoni: <"Dan Rundell and Fred Rundell went to Tulsa, Okla., last week to enter the major chess tournament of the Western Chess Association which opened Monday and will last to October 13."> -- Almena County Plain Dealer (Almena, Kansas, October 3, 1931.

Coupled with Keeney's information, it looks like only Dan played in Tulsa. (Fred played at Chicago in 1934.)

  Tabanus: Chess player <Daniel Rundell of Almena> in Lincoln Evening Journal Nov. 8, 1929.

The Topeka Daily State Journal, December 31, 1915, page 5:

<D. J. Rundell, of Almena, Defeats All Opponents in State Tourney. ... the tournament is over so far as D. J. Rundell, of Almena, is concerned, and today Mr. Rundell left for his home in Norton county, after having defeated every player entered in the tournament. Mr . Rundell was proclaimed state champion this morning when he defeated J. G. D. Pinney, the last player he had to meet, and was awarded the silver trophy cup that goes with the honor and also a pocket chess board, the first prize, donated by the Topeka Trunk factory. The new champion is a farmer and stock raiser of Norton county, and has been playing ever since he was 7 years old, although this was his first tournament. Before leaving Topeka today he announced that he would defend his title against all comers. His hardest opponents in the tournament, he said, were Messrs. Pinney and Moore, both of whom are former champions.>

  Tabanus: The WW2 draft reg. card (1942) gives his full name: Daniel Jerimiah Rundell, b. 26 March 1883, residing in Emmett Township, Norton, Kansas. Also orig. signature has the spelling Daniel Jerimiah Rundell. Death date I can only find in Find a Grave.

  Tabanus: It seems his first wife Sophia died in Nov. 1920, and that his 2nd wife Elsie died in 1931.

Fred Jerome Rundell: 19 May 1876 - 23 Feb 1955.

  Phony Benoni: <Tabanus> Wow. You jumped on that in a hurry! About all that's left to learn is where Helms got "G E Rundell" from.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: At least Almena is in Norton coubty, else I would not be so sure. Now only 400 inhabitants, Hope not a G E Rundell played also!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: No Rundell's at all in Kansas City 1930 and 1932 directories.

  Phony Benoni: <Tabanus> Thanks, as always. I've posted another question at Fred J Rundell
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Is Jerimiah correctly spelt?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: My only source is the WW2 draft reg. card, which has the name spelled out twice: Daniel Jerimiah Rundell on top and Daniel Jerimiah Rundell in his own signature at bottom.
