Siblings of Andrew Webb: Nancy Webb Richardson

Andrew's sister Nancy married Horatio B. Richardson on May 19 1842 in Lawrence Co. He was born on Feb 10 1813 in Waltham, Massachusetts and died on Nov 5 1893 In Bedford, Lawrence, IN. Nancy died on Nov 18 1896, also in Bedford and they are buried in Green Hill Cem. in Bedford. Children:

1. Martha Ora Richardson) was born May 1844, IN. She married James Carson (b. circa 1830, KY) and they had Nettie M. or Maria A. (b. circa 1862, IN), Fanny R. (b. Mar 1864, IN). By 1900, Martha was widowed and living in Bedford with Fanny (also spelled Fannie). I don't know what happened to Nettie, but she was alive in 1900 (Martha is shown as having two living children then). Fanny never married and lived in Bedford until at least 1930.

2. Horace Richardson, b. Dec 1847, Indiana. He married Sarah (b. July 1861, IN). They had:
Charles Horace (b. Oct 14 1884, IN), Persus (b. Apr 1887, IN), Cora (b. July 1890, IN), Paul Bedford (b. July 13 1897, IN). The family lived in Bedford until some point in the 1910s when Sarah died and Horace, Cora and Paul moved to Buffalo, New York. By 1930 Horace, Cora and Paul are living in Cambridge, MA. I think Persus/Perseus (a daughter) died young and I don't know what happened to Cora or Paul after the 1930 census. Paul's WWI draft card is from Buffalo so the family had left Bedford by Aug of 1918. Charles stayed in Bedford married an Elizabeth Roarden. They had Oneta/Oreta (b. circa 1912, IN), Horace (b. circa 1914, IN) and Charles J. (b. circa 1919, IN)

3. Mary Frances Richardson, b. 4 Dec 1849, Bedford, Lawrence, IN; d. 14 May 1914. Mary Frances never married and stayed in Bedford.

4. Henry B. Richardson, b. Nov 27, 1851 in Bedford. He died on Sept 21 1886 in Bedford. He was married to Mary E. who was born Feb 27 1855 or 1857 in Buffalo, Erie, NY. She died on Nov 22 1930 in Bedford and they are buried in Green Hill Cem.

Henry was a grocer in Bedford according to the 1880 Census. He and Mary had three children: Frederick (b. Feb 1875, Indiana), Edward E. (b. Jan 1877), Estella Louisa (b. circa 1879, Indiana), Reuel Lawrence(b. Oct 1881, Indiana) and (Jacob) Diehl (b. June 1883, Indiana).

Frederick Richardson married Bertha (b. circa 1887, IN) and they had William (b. circa 1909, IN) and James F. (b. circa 1914, IN). Edward never married. Reuel married Clara Hutchison around 1920 and they lived in Bedford and had a daughter. I believe Estella married a Mr. Stipp because a graddaughter, Frances (b. circa 1905) is living with Mary in the 1910 and 1920 census years. Deal/Diehl married a Georgia and they had a daughter.

5. Allan W. Richardson, b. June 4 1857, IN; d. Dec 20 1940, San Francisco, CA. He married a Mary (b. Dec 1869, IN) around 1895.

6. Ellen Ann Richardson, b. Sept 1859, IN. She married Wilmot David LaForce. By 1910, Wilmot had died and Ellen was living with her sister, Mary Frances and Ellen's two children Clara and Wilmot Jr. Clara was born July 1890, IN. She married William H. Opitz and they lived in Lakewood, Cuyahoga, Ohio (Ellen was living with them in 1930). Wilmot was born Aug 1892, IN. Wilmot also lived in Cuyahoga Co., Ohio and married a Marguerite/Margaret Haffer.

Since they all went to Ohio, I checked the death record database on FamilySearch. Turns out Wilmot and Margaret had a son, David Wilmot in Cincinnati on Jan 29 1920 but he was stillborn. From death record it says that Margaret was from Columbus, Ohio. I wasn't able to find death information for any of the others though.

7. Margaret Louisa Richardson, b. Aug 1863. She married George W. Campbell (b. Mar 1858, IN) around 1884. They had Leland W. Campbell (b. June 5 1885, IN) and Marie (b. Mar 1892, IN). I think Leland was living in Albaquerque in 1910, but the rest of the family was still in Bedford. By 1920, George and Margaret were living in Albaquerque with Leland his wife, Ruth (b. circa 1893, New Mexico). By 1930 Leland was in Oakland, Alameda, California with his mother, Margaret and uncle Allan. I found Leland in the CA Death Index. He died in Sacramento in 9 Sept 1970.

Now that I have all this information I'm going to try and get obituaries and death records for at least Nancy and her children and for Leland who died only a short way from me. I'm also going to go put up memorials for them on Find-A-Grave (if they aren't there already) and see if any of the wonderful volunteers there will take some headstone pictures for me in Indiana.
