In Reply to: William Richards, d 1836 in Fayette, Co, AL by Dick Hill of 692

I am a direct descendant of William Richards. I have searched Georgia Records, seen his school started with the Mercers at Greensboro, GA and seen his marriage bond to Nancy Mercer. However, all the records that I have seen show that his first wife was a Judith Martin and I have seen them in Halifax county, VA and he later named a son Martin, but I have no knowledge of a daughter. She died here in Georgia. All of have of his records from King and Queen County, VA is his Revolutionary War Record, no parents mentioned. He and James, his son married sisters. James married Lovey. My ggreat Grantdfather George Washington Richards aunt was his sister-in-law, James was his brother and his uncle. George and his family moved to Fayette County, Al, then to Choctaw county and then to Noxubee county, MS at Mushalville, William and Nancy went wth them to Fayette county. in the Fayetter county books that I have, It showed that James was ousted from his church for a while for public drunkeness. all thata's history, and no answer at all for you, but I have seen the reocrds for William Richards and Judith Martin. His son Martin went to the well for water one night and disappeared in the west. John went to Texas with the Belchers and the Mercers, among them, Jesse, and John died at the Alamo.
