I have just one correction to add to this, that James Richardson married Margaret Brightwell's oldest sister, Mary Louise, on 1 January 1846 in Gibson Co., TN, not Margaret, who married Terrisha Turner on 5 May 1853 in Gibson Co. (I don't think Margaret's middle initial is shown as "A.,"but that is the "t" ending her name.) Kathryn Schultz email@example.com
"1850 Gibson Co TN... ...Richardson, James 27 VA Brightwell, Margaret A 20 VA , Ann 18 VA , Samuel 17 TN , Elizabeth 16 TN , William 14 TN , Sarah 13 TN , Martha 11 TN , Lackey? 4 TN NOTE:These were children of John C Brightwell who died just before 1850. I believe that he was John CLAYBROOK Brightwell, brother of Leonard Lemuel Brightwell (listed above). Claybrook Brightwell married Elizabeth Rice in 1828 Charlotte Co VA; one of their daughters was Martha RICE Brightwell."
