I am looking for any information for Elsie Richardson who was born 5-9-1896 in Winchell, Brown County, Texas.She died 10-7-1972 in California.
Elsie's parents were Isaac Louis Richardson & Mary Jane McDonald.Elsie was the sister of my grandfather, August Isaac Richardson.Elsie had the following siblings all born in Texas:
Elmer Louis Richardson born 1894 Walter L. Richardson born 1898 Martha M. Richardson born 1901 Johnnie Mack Richardson born 1902 Lottie Jane Richardson born 1904 Beatrice Richardson born 1906 Mary E. Richardson born 1908 Samuel Frank Richardson born 1910 Claudia Richardson born 1912 August I. Richardson born 1914 (my grandfather) William David Richardson born 1917 Agnes Marie Richardson born 1921
As you can see, Elsie came from a large family (12 brothers & sisters).The sad thing is that she had virtually no contact with them for over 40 years.
Elsie was in love with a man (name unknown) from Brown County, Texas.I think this was about 1920.The unfortunate part of the story is that he was the boyfriend of one of her sisters (not sure which one).To be together, they left their families in Texas and moved to California.Elsie's family disowned her.
My grandfather, August Isaac Richardson, Elsie's brother, found her in California when I was little in the 1960's.There was some correspondence for awhile, but unfortunately that was it.
I would love to reconnect with this part of my family.I would love to fill in the gaps.I'm sorry I didn't pay more attention when my grandparents were alive to know more about Elsie & her family.
I have lots of genealogy on the Richardson and the McDonald families that I am willing to share.Both families were early Texas families who came to Texas before Texas was a part of the US,
Any information on Elsie Richardson and her line would be greatly appreciated.I really think that this is a love story more than a family story.
