Harriett Richardson - Was her maiden name Kimbal? If yes or don't know - please read: (Some Land Records would be nice about now.) I have a *_Theory_* but not much more.Certainly nothing to back it up enough to stick.
Married to Orison Richardson May 14, 1829 ? ================================= IF Yes - See Darborn co, IN Marriage Record Book 1 Page 293 http://126.96.36.199:591/FMProhttp://188.8.131.52:591/FMPro Enter Richardson in the top Spouse box _and_ Dearborn in the County box ===================================
Facts from 1850 census only: IN Dearborn Laughery Township 1850 Roll 141 Pg 434 (bottom of page 867 in the real Census Book) lists Harriet Richardson age 39 engaged in farming about $1,500 of ground.She was born in Penn. Then we turn the page and it gets real interesting: Oldest child:James M Richardson age 18 - acouple of years after the above marriage. indexed: IN Dearborn Laughery Township 1850141 435 since he is the top of the page, that is correct procedure. Child 2 - Benjamin age 12 - Same name as Orison's youngest brother Child 3 (twin) Amenage 10 or 11 Child 4 (twin) Orsonage10 or ll Indexed:IN Dearborn Laughery Township 1850 Roll 141 Pg 435 - why indexed?the twin was not.Orson is listed below 3 others on that page.
BIG QUESTION - _Pure_Speculation: Could the Censustaker have written Orson when the child was named after his father Orison ??? _IF_ Yes - Then my theory fits and I know the family she married into -- Orison Richard's Names of his parents and siblings and a lot of puzzle pieces fit.
Chlld 5 - Mary is age 8 or 9 (hard to read). Child 6 - Eliza age 5 Child 7 - Frances age 3
ALL the above childern are listed as born in Indiana.
