I live in Marysville and occasionally have time to do a quick look-up that I find here. Not for sure if you have seen this on the web or not, but will post in addition to finding that Aaron was listed on the 1900 census as well. He was still in Washington Township, widowed, age 81. I did not discover his death date or cemetery. His family was from Hardin County, Mt. Victory area after first settling in Champaign. This will give you further places to search for family history. Here are the bios on Aaron and his brother, Washington with links to bios:
WASHINGTON RICHARDSON, farmer, P. O. Mount Victory, was born in Champaign County, Ohio, March 15, 1826. His father, Barnet Richardson, was born in Grayson County, Va, May 13, 1797, and his mother in Martinsburg, W. Va., October 14, 1800. His father came to Ohio in 1806, his mother in 1810, settling in Champaign County, where they were married, coming thence to Hardin County in 1835. They settled in Hale Township, where the father died January 20, 1867, and the widow February 4, 1882. They were the parents of thirteen children, nine of whom are living, six residing in this county, two in Logan Ccunty, and one in Union County, Ohio. At the time of his decease, Mr. Barnet Richardson owned 183 acres of land. which was all a wilderness when purchased, but it is now well improved and is a valuable farm. Our subjoct now resides on the old home farm, of which he owns six shares. He is a man of whom all speak well, and whose word is as good as his note. Like his deceased father, he is energetic and persevering, and is constantly engaged in improving his farm.
