I am looking for information on James Richey. He was born abt 1802 in Indiana. I believe his first wife was Ann and she died in March of 1849. I don't have his 1850 census but he is remarried to Sarah in the 1860 census. One of their daughters Mary Richey born abt 1853 married my GGG Grandfather Orion Thomas on April 22, 1869. Mary died after child birth July 26, 1879. In the 1880 census Sarah is remarried to Calvin Thomas, Orion's father and they are all living together with a couple of Sarah's children and Orion's family. So Orion's father married his wifes mother. I don't have a date for their marriage but Calvin's first wife Naomi died Sept 14-1871. I would love more info on this Richey family and to find out Sarah's maiden name. Per a orbit index I do know that one of Sarah's daughters married into the Mitchell family and one into the Davis Family. John could be from James first marriage and there could be more as well.
James and Sarah's other Children are:
