Benjamin Risher and Richard Risher shown on the quick claim deed were brothers {Benjamin Risher did have a son named Richard who was born in 1792 and would only have been a year old when the quick claim deed was written.]

Sarah Risher mentioned on the deed was their mother. The deceased John Risher was their father.

Benjamin Risher had a daughter named Sarah. Sarah is said to have been born in 1793. This Sarah married Edward Matchette, Jr. and they moved to Mississippi where Sarah passed away 4 June 1866,

Some researchers say among Benjamin Risher's children was a son named Samuel. A descendant of Samuel told me they did not know who Samuel's parents were but that he had two sisters named Sarah Aelthea and Mary.
I believe Sarah Althea was the Eltha Burge shown on the quick claim deed. Eltha Burge was probably the Hannah Risher you all are looking for. Some people go by names other than their legal name.

I believe Richard Risher may have been Samuel and Sarah Aletha's father. I have only seen liitle research done on
Richard. The 1790 Colleton Census shows a Rachal Risher, I believe Rachal was Richard. Besides himself, the household included one other male, probably Samuel and three females, probably a wife and two daughters.
Richard is said to have been a trustee of the Island Creek Meeting House which was just north of modern Walterboro, SC.

Samuel became a Methodist circuit ride in 1793.
