Notes for D
R. JOHN RICHEY:
John probably came to Indiana in 1809 with William Elston Collings. "Dr. John Richey and Sichey Collings were the first couple married in Scott Co. in 1810. They lived in the area of the settlement to the southwest. Dr. John was working in the field when he heard shots and saw smoke rising from the homes of the settlement. Realizing what was happening, he took Sichey upon his back and fled through the cornfield. They hid in the woods until dark and then laboriously made their way to Zebulon's blockhouse the following morning. Sichey delivered their first child (Richard) shortly after the massacre." (from "The Collings, Richeys and The Pigeon Roost Massacre")

Marriage Notes for J
OHN RICHEY and SICHY COLLINGS:
Excerpt from "The Collings, Richeys & the Pigeon Roost Massacre", pg. 758, Sylvia Applegate Richey speaking of her grandmother, Sichey Richey Davis Applegate, daughter of Dr. John & Sichey Richey: "Grandma's mother was a midwife. She had 14 children and raised one grandson. She and Dr. John walked and rode horseback. She did much of the midwife work as he had taught her. He went to medical college in Virginia. Grandma's parents were gone so much, they taught their children how to take over. Half the girls big enough to work would take one part of work one week and the other half the next. They had to keep the pewter dishes and everything shining. One time a lady patient came in with her apron full of love apples (tomatoes). She knew they were good to eat and after that they all ate them." And pg. 759: "Dr. John Richey was one of the founders of Old Ox Baptist Church in 1823 in south Finley Township in Scott County. The Richeys and Applegates attended that church as it was the closest".

Marriage may have taken place in Clark Co., IN.
