Andrew, Thomas, John and James must have decided to make the big move to Mississippi together. The Amite County records show Andrew residing there in 1816, so he must have stayed to start establishing the family holdings. John and James are shown on the 1820 White County Tennessee Census reports and must have moved south about then. According to that report James had 3 boys under age ten. John is shown as having 1 boy age 10-16, 2 girls age 10-16 and 3 girls age 16-26. John is also shown as owning 11 slaves, while a William Richmond also has 11 slaves.

According to troop rosters of the War of 1812, there were five Tennessians who bore the name of Richmond and fought to keep the British out of New Orleans (the most important site for control of the western territories).

ALEXANDER P. RICHMOND commissioned officer Ensign of the 17th Regiment of the Tennessee Militia.

ANDREW RICHMOND Pvt. attached to Major General Andrew Jackson through Captain Joseph Kirkpatrick of the Mounted Gunmen.

ISSAC RICHMOND Pvt. attached to Col. Phillip Pitkin through Capt. John Robertson of the Military Infantry.

JOHN RICHMOND Pvt. attached toCol. Edwin Boothe through Capt. John McKaney of the East Tennessee Militia.

THOMAS W. RICHMOND Pvt. attached to Lt. Col. George H. Nixon's Regiment of the Mississippi Infantry.

These men saw action in the Creek Indian Wars prior to their arrival in New Orleans according to official War Records of Major General Andrew Jackson through the United States Military Archives.

Although the battle of New Orleans was officially fought after the close of the War, it played an important part in the negotiations of the peace treaty. It was not only one of the few victories for the newly formed nation, but was a complete route of the invading British Army and resulted in the death of one of England's most able commanders General Packingham. The combined forces of the American Militia and frontiersmen, two companies of free men of color and the forces of former Pirate Jean Lafitte proved once and for all that America was becoming a world power .


According to Dorothy Kratzer, a descendent of Robert Gideon Richmond. the Richmonds who were in Louisiana at the time of the Civil War were a family group who moved to Amite County Mississippi after the War of 1812. They had apparently, traveled here with the Tennessee Volunteers and liked the country and weather . The Battle of New Orleans was fought in Janurary in extremely mild weather.
Undoubtedly this appealed to the Tennessians, for they show up in records of several styles during the 1820's in and around southern Mississippi. From there they moved into several areas of Louisiana, including Morehouse , Ouachita , Caldwell , Catahoula, Calcasieu, Winn and St. Landry Parishes.

There are no Richmonds listed on the Louisiana Census Records prior to 1840. There are however, many records of the Richmonds in Amite County. Here is where they first settled after leaving Tennessee , selecting the hill country north of Lake Ponchatrain and New Orleans.

Thomas W, Richmond served in the War of 1812 in Lt. Col. George H. Mixon's Regiment of Mississippi Militia. His wife Sarah was born in 1796 according to the Census of 1850. At that time she was listed as Mrs. Thomas Richmond and was shown living in the household of Melodius Richmond and his children, one of whom was also named Sarah. Sarah the junior was born in 1834 and married Richard Burt. The elder Sarah Richmond continued to reside with her granddaughter and name sake, Sarah Richmond Burt and is shown on the 1860 Census Records of Calcasieu Parish.

The Census Record of 1840 does not contain enough information to determine which children belong to whom. Our lineage, Robert Richmond's household is shown as having 1 female 30 to 40 years old (assumed to be wife Sarah Wilson) , 1 female under age 5 (probably daughter Margaret Richmond),
1 female 6 to 10 years of age (may have been Thomas and Sarah's child Sarah), 1 male 6 to 10 years old ( assumed to be John C. Richmond), 3 males 10 to 15 years of age ( two of which are probably Robert Harmon and Marion J. Richmond -- but the other is not yet identified-- it may have been Jonathon Richmond, he married Chelly Smith in Caldwell Parish in 1838 and his mother Sarah had to sign for him, I think this was Thomas' wife Sarah of the War of 1812 fame.) and last of all 1 female 15 to 20 years old (not identified-- may have been Jonathon,s wife Chelly Smith).

Samuel Richmond, who also resided in Ouachita Parish, is shown on the 1840 Census as having 1 male and 1 female in the 0 to 5 year old bracket (the girl was probably Harriet, the boy could not be easily identified), the others listed 2 males and 1 female 30 to 40 years old ( Samuel and his wife and an unidentified male).

William Richmond, of Washington Parish, is shown on the 1840 Census twice but all the data is ident-
ical so it must have been a duplicate by two different census takers. He is shown as having 2 males under age five, 1 female five to ten years old, 2 males ten to fifteen years old, one female 20 to30 years old and one male 30 to 40 . One of the younger boys was probably William L. Richmond shown in 1860 as a 22 yr. old farm manager in Morehouse Parish.

JOHN RICHMOND was born in 1781 in South Carolina. It appears that he moved to Tennessee before his late teens. He served in the Creek Indian Wars and the War of 1812 with the East Tennessee Militia, attached to Colonel Edwin Booth's troop through Captain John McKamey's command. Once in the Gulf States area he decided to settle and there he or a son named John married Lucinda Clay Lea on December 15, 1826 in Amite Co. Mississippi. Lucinda had been born in Tennessee in 1805. From this marriage however sprang six children:
1. John Richmond b. 1831 -- he married Mary Lord b. 1830
a. Mathew Richmond b. 1845
b. Lucinda Richmond b. 1848
2. Elisba W. Richmond b. 1832 -- she married H.M. Wicker on Oct. 10th, 1853.
3. Iverson Green Richmond b. 1835 -- lost an arm in the Civil War, served as 3rd. Lt.
4. Jane Richmond b. 1837-- she married someone named Flanagan
5. Margaret M. Richmond b. 1842
6. Mary B. Richmond b. 1845

John Richmond jr. must have met an untimely end for Mary, Mathew and Lucinda are shown residing with the Lord family in the 1850 Amite Co. Census . Also shown in the Amite County Mississippi Census were Mary's father, the 55 year old Zachary Lord from Georgia--his wife 55 year old Margaret from South Carolina, younger sister Elisabeth E. Lord age 12 and brother Absolum E. Lord age 15. The Lords' are shown as owning a Tavern and Inn in Amite County since June of 1821.

Elisba W. Richmond Wicker was born May 28th of 1832 and died on March 20th of 1932. Her husband H.M. Wicker was born March 11th of 1825 and died Feburary 14th of 1904. Both are buried at the Whittington/Whitehead Cemetary of Amite County Mississippi.

Iverson Green. Richmond was born April 3rd of 1835, he was a 3rd. Lt. for the Amite County Guards Co. B. in the Civil War and lost one arm in battle. I don't know whether he ever married or not, but he died Janurary 11th, 1894 at the age of 59. He was buried in lthe Zacharian Lea Cemetary in Amite County and can be counted among its honored dead.

Jane Richmond was born Feburary 14th, 1838. Her tombstone shows her last name as Flanagan. She died March 3rd, 1914 and is buried in Gloster Cemetary in Amite County Mississippi. Her epitaph says daughter of John and Lucinda Richmond of South Carolina and Tennessee.

JAMES RICHMOND was listed as a resident of Amite County Mississippi in 1816. Since I could find no record of him fighting in the War of 1812, we must assume he came south with John. He married Margaret Dickey on October 11th, 1827. In the 1830 Census they are shown as having one male child under age 10.
By 1833 James had died. John Richmond is shown as the estate administer in Orphans Court Records for James' son William Richmond. This would indicate that whatever happened to James also befell his wife Margaret.. Lucinda and her husband Seborn P. Shope requested guardianship of the heir and property of the deceased. Since John is shown as executor, it may be assumed that he is a close relative even father/son from John's first marriage. The Amite County records indicate that James and Hugh Bennett (Hugh was married to Eliza Richmond, who after his death married W. C. Whitaker on March 22nd, 1838) acted as property inventories in several estate settlements, and that James owned substantial holding of his own.

WILLIAM RICHMOND did well in his own right. By 1839, he was able to purchase land from the Union Bank of Amite as shown in Book I page 4--722 of the County Records. In 1853, he expanded his holdings by purchasing land from Elijah L. Tarver--Book I page 8--337. Elijah was the older brother of William's wife Elizabeth Ann Tarver Richmond whom he married on May 11th, 1836 in Amite Co. Miss. After William's death, Elizabeth married William Sasser in March 29th, 1864. In 1840, William is shown to be living in Washington Parish Louisiana.At this time they had two boys under age five, one girl age five to ten, and two boys age 15 to 20 living in their home. One of the boys is most likely William L. Richmond shown in 1860 as a Mississippi born Farm Manager in Morehouse Parish . He enlisted as Pvt. Co. C., 13th Battn. La. (Partisian Rangers) during the Civil War. William L. was 22 when he enlisted making his birth 1838.

In all William and Elisabeth had seven children as shown in the 1850 Catahoula Parish Census.
1. Melissa Richmond b. 1836
2. William L. Richmond b. 1838
3. Jane Richmond b. 1839
4. Elisabeth Richmond b. 1844
5. Priscilla Richmond b. 1845
6. Ellen Richmond b. 1846
7. Lucinda Richmond b. 1848

The family groupings are still unclear for the early Richmonds of Louisiana , Mississippi and Texas but these all appear to be sons and daughters of John, James, Andrew and Thomas who came from Tennessee.

The population of most of North Louisiana's parishes experienced a sudden decline in the white census rolls from 1865 til 1870. Historian H.B. Bozeman of Winnfield attributes it to the harsh rule of the Union Reconstructionist in Louisiana along with the Carpetbaggers and Scalawags who stole or confiscated the property of the former Confederates and their families.
In his narrative of the period, he states that unto Louisiana was inflicted the harses punishment of all the Southern States. He further states that punishment was a direct result of one Ullyses S. Grant. It seems that this renowned yankee general and later president, at one time was stationed in Natchitoches Louisiana at the United States Army Post just after the Mexican War of 1846 - 1848. Although engaged to a northern sweetie whom he later married, he fell under the spell of one of the lovely Natchitoches belles charms. It is said that he pursued her to great extent, but she found both him and his advances objection-
able. He was fresh from West Point, an Army Lieutenant, and rather brash. He stayed at Camp Salubrity, a temporary camp three miles from Fort Jesup near the Texas border. While here he served under Col. Zachery Taylor. Reportedly he was a regular at the horse race betting circuit where he was known to be a poor gambler. He also paid a local $8.00 a month for the services of a Negro body servant.
According to the source, our illustrous yankee Lieutenant, took up drinking to drown his sorrow over the lost of his southern belle. If so, it stayed with him because he was well known for his drinking. He was even passed over several times for promotion because of it, but President Lincoln was desperate for a commander who could counter Lee, and after several others failed, placed Grant in control.
After the war, Grant is said to have exacted his revenge on Louisiana because of the rebuff the southern miss had given him and vowed that the people of Louisiana would lose their haughty ways.
Years later in his memoirs, President Grant however described his 14 months in Louisiana as very agreeable with a delightful climate and that he had been somewhat of a social favorite among the citizens and planters of the Red River/ Cane River Country, Natchitoches and Grand Encore.
Be that as it may, the Reconstruction Years quickly took everything from many of the families of Louisiana. In their attempt to escape the cruel enforcement of Grant's Rule through Gen. Benjamin F. " Beast" Butler, many looked toward the wilds of West Texas. They abandoned the homes that had not been burned and looted, and the land that the new Negro government along with the Carpetbaggers and Scalawags had confiscated. Many of the soldiers, (husbands, fathers and sons) had not returned home and never would, lying in unmarked graves along some unnamed creek or fields of the south, or in mass graves outside the walls of Union prisoner of War Camps . Some were honored however by the people in whose areas they died and were given a decent burial, but come home they would not. Therefore hundreds of these families,some with just women and children along with those of adjoining parishes headed west over the El Camino Real, (name used for the present U.S. Hwy 84) a trail that covered the southern states from former Spainish Florida to West Texas , Northern Mexico and on to Spainish California. They settled along the route of this highway in places like Pioneer and San Saba. Many called this pilgramage "TEXAS FEVER".
The members of the Richmond and Teston familes moved to an area near Austin and there tried to make new roots. Many died, but some when on to prosper and expand their new families. The family of my distant cousin Dorothy Kratzer is one. Dorothy is a descendent of Robert Gideon Richmond who had resided in Winn Parish Louisiana until the War took nearly everything he had including his eldest son.



ROBERT RICHMOND was born in 1805 in Tennessee. He married Sarah Wilson of South Carolina.They had five children:

1. William Harmon Richmond b. 1827 m. Mary Ann Miles
2. Marion J. Richmond b. 1829 m. Angeline Hebert
3. John C. Richmond b. 1835
4. Margaret Elizabeth Richmond b. 1838 m. Albert McCoy
5. Jesse W. Richmond b. 1846

Robert died in September of 1859. According to the probate filed on Jan.26th, 1861 by his wife Sarah, Robert owned a house on Trenton Street, a 40 acre tract of land south of Monroe, 40 acres southeast of Monroe about ten miles, 480 acres due east of Monroe nearer to the Mississippi River, 1/2 section of land near Waterproof Louisiana and parcels of land in Caldwell and Catahoula Parishes. She also reports he had five minor heirs 1. Margaret Elizabeth Richmond , who became the wife of Albert McCoy (listed in Ted Wood's book as a founding father of the town of Columbia, Louisiana). 2. Lucinda Richmond , who became the wife of Elbert Teston. 3. Jane Richmond , became the wife of Lucien Hebert (for whose family the town of Hebert, La is named) 4. Jesse Richmond, at that time was 15 years old and still considered a minor.
5. Enos, the only son of Marion Richmond, who died in 1857.

At the property on the tract south of Monroe, he was inventoried as having 25 head of cattle, 25 hogs, 8 bee gums (hives), 2 rifles, 1 doublebarrel, 1 saddle, 1 cart, 2 ploughs & gear, and vaious farming utensils.

At the property southeast of Monroe, he was reported to have 14 head of cattle, 1 calf, 6 bee gums, 13 hogs, a rifle gun, and a plough and harness.

The census of 1870, shows Sarah Wilson Richmond living the household of her daughter, Margaret Elizabeth McCoy. It appears that Robert died in debt and the paper work , fees, etc. took most of what he had accumulated.


WILLIAM HARMON RICHMOND was born in 1827. He married Mary Ann Miles in 1848. They had three children :

1. Mary Jane Richmond b. 1849
2. Marion Jillman Richmond b. 1849
3. Sarah Jane Richmond b. 1850

According to papers filed in the Caldwell Parish Courthouse, William was at least as successful at acquiring things as his dad. April 20th, 1854 he bought in Sec.36-15-4 39.20 acres of land (file no. 51026). On July 15th, 1856 he acquired a deed to Sec. 6-14-5 (file no. 51233), and then on Dec. 20th, 1858 he got another whole section 6-14-4 (file no. 51493). William's sucession record is also on file in the Courthouse in Columbia. It was filed in 1869 Book E. pg. 377 (file no. 52447). The administor of the sucession was listed as J.F. Ellis.

** William Richmond , Pvt. and later Corpl. Co. D, 13th Battn. La. (Partisan Rangers). Enlisted on August 13th, 1862, Monroe Louisiana and shown on roll until 1863. There were no records shown afterwards of his company. He died in 1864, I'm not sure how or where yet.


MARION J. RICHMOND was born in 1829. He married Angelina "Annie" Hebert on 6 April 1854. Annie was born on 27 Jan. 1839 the daughter of Enos Hebert and Jane Elliot Hebert. Enos Hebert's parents were Antoine Hebert and Eugenia Heberard Hebert. Marion and Annie had one child:

1. Enos Richmond b. 3- - 1856. 1m. Emma Jones 2m. Delia Jones

Marion died in 1857 and Angeline remarried William C. Poole on 28 Nov. 1858. They had seven children:

Emma Jones and Enos Richmond were married in Ouachita Parish on May 31st, 1888. Their marriage license is on file at the Ouachita Parish Courthouse in Record Book A, page 103. After Emma death, Enos married her sister Delia Jones. It appears that Emma and Delia's mother also lived with them.

Delia and Enos were married on the 7th of Feb. 1897. I found their original marriage license on file in the Caldwell Parish Court House.

After Enos' death she remarried to Jody Boyd on 16 Janurary, 1929. Their license is also on file in Columbia. She is buried at Fellowship Cemetary near Columbia La..

FLOYD RICHMOND b. 3-10-1905 (never married) Pvt. U.S. Army WWII attached to one of the last Horse Cavalry Units in American History. Although the unit was never placed into service, Uncle Floyd was ready, willing and well trained to charge his steed into battle.

Uncle Floyd did settle on a Government Homestead in Caldwell Parish. Many members of the family used the Homestead throughout the years. It was located about a half mile west-southwest of the Twin Bluffs on the Ouachita River near Corey. All that remains of the site now are a few old nails, a couple of rusty pans, and the flowers that adorned the front yard. In 1990, an old Beach tree used as a carving tree still held the initials of some of the Richmonds that had visited the area during the 1920's and 1930's.


CICERO RICHMOND b. 1907 fell out of a truck at Davis Lake curve on hwy 165 and died 1932.

Uncle Cicero was a very colorful character if you can believe the stories. Some of the women said he was the most handsome and best build of the Richmond boys. Maurice Richmond said that he could remember Cicero hoisting 200 lbs. of sugar on his shoulder and carrying it the half mile from the river landing to the old homestead. I never really though about it at the time but that and what he told me of a high hill surronded by water between the Shipp and Eason place now paint another picture of Uncle Cicero.

While hunting one day in the 1980's, I came upon a "Break" or swampy area between the hills and the Shipp place. On the side toward the river from my location was a large hill. It appeared as if it just rose out of the water. I waded across and jumped a nice whitetail buck which was beded on the hill or ridge. The area was indeed surrounded by water. When I told dad about it he said ,"Son some of your kinfolks used to make moonshine up there, they used it because it was hard for the Revenuers to find".

The 1920's were a special period of history in American, the Stock Market Crash caused thousands to lose everything and Prohibition was the Law of the Land. The time produced famous people like Al Capone, who were making there fortunes and reputations. Times were hard and cash money difficult to come by. As Capone did in Chicago, Cicero did in Louisiana. Although he was not a killer as Capone's boys were, he did dabble in Moonshine Whiskey in order to make a little extra cash, and just as Capone met his Eliot Ness, Cicero met his Vincent M. Mouser Assistant District Attorney for Caldwell Parish in September of 1929.
