RICHARDS and RUSSELL SC>GA>AR>TX
Posted by: The Carver's Daughter (ID *****7456) Date: October 29, 2004 at 18:19:49

I simply cannot get past one set of my husband's 2G grandparents on his mother's side. Here is what I have on them:

Descendants of Robert E RICHARDS


First Generation

1. Robert E RICHARDS(1) was born in Abbeville District, South Carolina(1) and
died in 1859 in Abbeville District, South Carolina.(1)

General Notes: Very little is know about Robert RICHARDS at this point
other than what is listed in his vital information. His grandson Samuel
Sydney RUSSELL said he was told the family was Irish, but did not say it
that was Ireland born or Irish heritage.

I have found records of the naturaliztion of and Adam RICHARDS from County
Antrim. At the time he became a citizen he was living in the pendleton
District of SC. He arived in Charleston County about 31 May 1803.
Naturlization date 27 Oct 1814. Died intestate about 1848, leaving at
least 7 children. His wife pre-deceased him. There were very few
RICHARDS families that I can find records for in Abbeville District during
this period. So it is possible that this Adam could have been father or
grandfather to our Robert.
Adam died in Abbeville District

There is no Robert RICHARDS or R.E. RICHARDS on the 1850 census for South
Carolina. The index I used was an every name index(1)

Robert married Elizabeth RUSSELL(1) [MRIN:228].

The child from this marriage was:

+ 2 M i. Robert Frank RUSSELL was born on 5 Apr 1857 in Abbeville
District, South Carolina(2) and died on 4 Oct 1946 in Santa
Anna, California, at age 89.(2)

Second Generation (Children)

2. Robert Frank RUSSELL was born on 5 Apr 1857 in Abbeville District, South
Carolina(2) and died on 4 Oct 1946 in Santa Anna, California, at age
89.(2)

Research Notes: I checked for Robert RUSSELL in SC on 1860 census returns
and there were 2 - one age 22, one age 13 - far too old to be our Robert
RUSSELL.

There is no R.F. RUSSELL on the 1860 census for SC

No R.F. RICHARDS in GA on 1860 GA census
