I have just found an abstract of the obit of Rebecca J. RICHARDS, in a loose leaf notebook in the main Library in downtown Ft. Pierce. Here is a copy of the abstract, if you want, I can get the whole thing, if the film is readable.
ST. LUCIE COUNTY TRIBUNE, Ft. Pierce, St. Lucie Co., FL, December 15, 1905, page 1. Mrs. Rebecca J. RICHARDS, born March 4, 1833, New York City; died December 7 in Stuart; buried, Eden Cemetery; Congregational; came to Indian River area in 1881; husband, Thomas F., deceased; survived by father, Noah BROWN, sons, Harry W. and Frank R. RICHARDS, daughter, Mrs. J. H. LeTOURNEAU. Hope this may help. Jim Kirby
