Re: Jasper Newton Richmond of Ripley Co, MO
Yes I saw Elizabeth with her husband Mosley. My GGGrandfather,William E.Richmond son of JBS Richmond was shot and killed by his half brother Samuel Richmond. Some kind of she said he said thing and alcohol was involved this bunch did like a drink. Several were in the shine business back in the hills of Mo.William E.Richmond's son my GGrandfather,Robert"Bob"H. Richmond killed a man in Poplar Bluff other a card game and died in the Jefferson City Prison.Robert's son my Grandpa,Noah went blind over some bad shine and later died ,heart attack,in a hospital in St. Louis.He had a sister that lived there. On the time of this John Richmond b.1800Va. living in Lawrence Co.Ar. I know the family of Richmond and Sullivan did go down into AR. alot back and forthe from Ripley. Some of the same ones would be in Randolph Co. Ar. too,which is just a County over from Lawrence, if this is not my John Richmond I think is some kin. The age of John and place of birth is exactly what my John would be and too many familys from Ripley Co. are in this area that being Lawrence Co.There is a person in Ripley Co. that has a Will for JBS and also papers of when he went back to Hamilton Co. TN and sold the family land there.So am sure that John and family was in Hamilton co. on 1830 census. This person will not give me the info.so I can find the sale of land. She states that it was some time after the family went to Ripley Co. MO. so this narrows it down to 1850-1900 ,big help. I am looking into maybe from 1820 Census in White Co. TN as beening John Richmond and family.Also Sullivans in that Co. at that time.
