    Notes 
    • Andy J. Richeson is listed in the 1900 census in Tipton Twp., Cass, IN with his wife Sarah A, b. Feb 1833. Sarah Ann Mays died in 1866 according to cemetery and other records. By 1900, Andrew was married to Rebecca Harper (md 1868) with a daughter Ida b. 1869. Ida is listed with Andy J. and Sarah A. in the 1900 census but unless a great many records all wrong, instead of Sarah A. it must be Rebecca who was living with Andy and daughter Ida in 1900.

      Dear Shirley
      Thanks for the information. It helped. I have the children's names from the will of Archibald Richardson. With your information and the last name of Margaret (Stewart Forgy's wife) we should complete the circle.
      What family are you a descendant of. My ancestor is Hugh Wallace Richison.

      The info I have to date: Richison or Richardson children (spelled both ways)
      1. John Richardson (no information);
      2. Sarah Margaret Richardson (no information)
      3. Andrew (Richeson) Richardson b. Abt 1822 in OH, m. 11/14/1852 Cass
      Co., IN [B2pg67} Sarah Jane Mays;
      4. Peter G. [Richerson) Richardson b. 7-12-1827 in Ohio; m. Nancy;
      died 2-22-1916 in Miami Twp., (New Waverly) Cass Co., IN [saw this
      death certificate]; There are three marriage records, which I
      believe may go with him. Catharine Kinsey 10-13-1853, Nancy
      Whittcomb 12-23-1898, and Nancy Richeson, 5-29-1911
      5. William Richardson abt 1829 in Ohio;
      6. Hugh Wallace (Richison) Richardson b. 10-10-1833 in Cass Co, In or
      OH [on his Civil War Records both birth locations are listed (in
      different places).; d. 5-26-1879 Carroll Co., In; married Rachel
      Dunkin 10-10-1872 Carrol Co., IN [BK6,pg454]; [my ancestor]
      7. Ruben Richardson b. 4-21-1835 Cass Co., IN or OH and d. May 1916
      in Kingman, KS, he married Julia A. Charpie 11-26-1865 in Peru,
      Miami Co., IN [C1-352];
      8. Archibald Richardson b. abt 1837 m. on 3-2-1859 Mary Jane
      Campbell in Cass Co., IN [B3 pg 183]
      9. Eliza Jane Richardson. b. abt. 1844, m. Joseph Fenimore 10/29/1864
      Cass Co., IN

      The Abt. birth dates are based on census information

      Archibald (13) and his sister Eliza Jane (6) lived with Noble Plummer in Adams Twp., Cass Co., in the 1850 census Roll 137 page 430 [must be after their parents death]

      Ruben Richardson (11) was living with John & Nancy Plummer in the Clay Twp, Cass Co., IN Roll 137 p 417 of 1850 census.

      Hugh "Wallace" was living in Nobel Twp, Cass CO., IN with David & Jane Dale and working as a farm hand.

      In Ruben Richardson Civil War Records he states his birth records were lost and he believes the above to be his birth date. In his Civil War Records he states his parents were both deceased by the time he was 9 years old, he was bound out to live with John Plummer where he lived until age 16. At the time of his Mother's death the family was separated. At age 16 he went to live with his Aunt Margaret Forgey (Forgy)? in Peru Twp., Miami Co., IN. He worked her farm. [Margaret has a granddaughter, Margaret Black.] Margaret Forgey died which he was serving in the Civil War. In 1860 he was living with Samuel & Mary Black. He had a cousin named William W. Holman.
      Margaret (last name not known should be either Richison/Richardson or Gibson) married Stewart Forgy probably in Clark Co., OH. The Forgy's [father John and sons John, James, Stewart and Presley] had settled there in 1806 and the Richeson's [John]in 1817. Stewart and Margaret Forgy's daughter married Lewis Holman son of Solomon Holman, completing the relatives as to Uncle Ruben's statements in the Civil War documents.

      This would make the parents of our Richison's John Richison and Betsey Gibson married October 28, 1819 in Clark Co., Ohio ... George's father is probably John. with known siblings of Eleanor, John R., Andrew, Jane and probably Eppy.
