Richards Family - Surgoinsville
Posted by: Michael Pentecost (ID *****7876) Date: March 06, 2014 at 19:40:53

I am looking for information on Mack Richards (abt 1859-1935) and Lize/Eliza Richards (abt 1873-1935) who worked and lived on the farm belonging to the Lyons Family (Dr. George Conner Lyons) near Surgoinsville. They lived in a cabin on the farm. Lize/Eliza was my 3G Grandmother. I believe Mack and Lize/Eliza are brother/sister, but 1900 census lists them as cousins. Family oral history is that Mack raised the children of Lize, who was never married. Children of Lize include Danie Harmon Richards (my GG-Grandfather, b. 1893), Fred, and Pearl (b. abt 1903). Four of Danie's children were born on the farm before he and wife Lula Fox Richards moved to Ohio around 1920. Mack was married to a Julia (b. about 1856, d. 5 Apr 1930). Mack and Julia's children include William Mathew (b Apr 1892) and Larry H. (b. Dec 1894). Any help or reference would be appreciated.
