I just did some researching on my Richeson lines in Pike County, Indiana
This came from Louetta Richeson Coberly in the History of Pike county.

In the middle 1800's Glenmore Richeson and Sarah Walker Richeson joines a wagon train leaving TN for IN They settled near Coe and are buried in New Liberty Cemetery.

Son: William J.Richeson b.Indiana married Sarah E. Fettinger of Winslow

Harold married Maude Doerges of Old Hartwell.They lived in Augusta till 1926 Harold worked the Hartwell mines. and owned a barber shop in Augusta, they had (9) children:
Willard, Louetta, Warren, Charles, George, Wilford, Mabel, Blythe, and Clydia(died young).
For personal reasons they sold the property in 1929 and Maude took the children west. Teier destination was Hudson South Dakota, All the children except Willard and Louetta remained in the west.
Willard married Ival Elder lived in Augusta children were: James, Harold, Cathy, Donald Ray, Ival died when Harold and Donald were very young and they went to school in Boys Town where they graduated.
