Shan M. Richards/Richardson was born Mar 1862 in MO, died 20 May 1925 in Dickens County, TX. The informant on Shan's death certificate was Bill Partridge. Shan married Ann Sanders on 3 Mar 1898 in Barry County, MO. Shan and Annie had at least one child, Albert Green Richards, born 2 Jun 1908 in Washburn, Barry County, MO & died 15 Mar 1984 in Hutchinson County, TX. Ann Sanders was born Nov 1882 in MO and died between 1908 and 1925.
In 1880, Shan was living with his mother and siblings in Macon County, MO; no father was present. A George Sanders family was living next door. The family went by Richardson on that census. The mother's name was given as S. A. Richardson, age 39. The children were Shan, age 18; Mary T., age 16; Milton, age 14; and Smith, age 10.
In 1900, Shan was living in Barry County, MO [Ash Township] with his wife Annie and grandfather William J. Dalton, age 81, born in IN.
Shan is know to have been in Barry County, MO in 1912 as per this news article:
February 22, 1912, Thursday, Cassville Republican, Barry Co., MO
Mayflower News: Bob Dalton and brother, Ed, who lives near Bentonville Ark., visited at Shan Richards Friday night.
My understanding is that Shan and Annie's son, Albert, grew up in the home of an aunt. I do not know if Shan and Annie had other children. Shan was about 20 years older than Annie, so I don't know if he had been married previously.
I have not been able to find a 1910 or 1920 census schedule for this family, or an 1870 schedule for any of them. Albert was married and living in Dickens County in 1930. He was know locally as "Red" Richards.
Any help you can give in identifying this family, especially Shan's father and Annie's parents, would be very much appreciated.
