Mizell/Richardson Family Tidbits, Washington Parish, Louisiana
Contributed by Sheila Martin


My family's information shows the following family record for Benjamin
RICHARDSON Sr. (b. 1740 NC) who married Sarah MIZELL, the daughter of
Luke MIZELL and Sarah SMITHWICK. Their children were reported to be:
Hardy md. Francis "Fannie" MIZELL
Penelope md. William WILLIAMS
William md. Jane _______
John md. Nancy ALBRITTON
Frances Patterson md. ??
Benjamin, Jr. md. Nancy Hendricks
Amos md. Nancy ??

Benjamin Sr. moved to GA with his wife's brother and cousin William
MIZELL not long before the Revolution, locating in St. Mathews Parish
(which became Effingham in 1777). He was in Screven County when it was
cut out of Effingham. He served as the first tax collector of Screven
from 1793-1796. He was taken into Bulloch County when it was created
out of Screven. He died in Bulloch County in 1799. His widow Sarah
was still alive as evidenced by land records.

There is record of a passport to the Richardson and Williams families
from Georgia "across the Indian lands" to Louisiana.

Now the stuff from the Georgia Archives:

Mahones, Flournoys, Marshalls. Other information was taken from THE

In a letter dated March 21, 1958, a Mrs. Doris Green of Natchez, Miss.,
I understand you have a file in the Archives on Hardy Richardson. Could
you send me a list of the datta in this file, as well as the charge for
having it photostated?

Where could I find Old newspapers of Bullock Co., Georgia? Hardy
Richardson was Justice of the Peace in Bullock Co, Ga. 1806 when he
resigned. Evidently to come to Louisiana. 1807 his brothers Benjamin
and John received passports but there was no mention of Hardy.

It is said that the wagon train was held up for two weeks because Hardy
Richardson was bitten by a rattlesnake from which he died. Am wondering
if he died in Georgia and if there might be an account of it in a
newspaper? It looks like he would have gotten a passport otherwise,
since his brothers did.

I have found records of Phaney or Fanny in Louisiana but cannot find
Hardy. Unfortunately the Washington Parish courthouse burned.
... Signed Doris Green

For those who like to collect autographs, the Bulloch County loose
papers also contained some old handwritten affidavits signed by citizens
claiming damages due to marauding Indians or Creek Indians, including
affidavits signed by:
John Douglass as J.P. on the affidavit signed by Luke Mizell dated 11
April 1803 as to the loss of a mare in 1778. William Mizell.
Signature of William Mizell dated 16 January 1803
Signature of Hardy Richardson dated October 4, 1802, in the affidavit of
David Mizell
Signature of David Mizell dated October 4,1802 on affidavit that he lost
4 horses 2 roans and 2 grays and 2 saddles on or about 16 April 1789.
Signature of Benjn Richardson, J.P. on the application for passport
dated September 23 1807.
On 18 October 1802 Mrs. Sarah Richardson made affidavit as to losses
from the Creek Indians, but she signed by a mark.

Tidbit #3

In Book K page 192 in Camden County, there is a Deed of
Gift from Charlton MIZELL of Camden County to his children (minors) -
dated Aprl 13, 1819:

Sally B.
Polly Ann
Wm. Jackson

Sally B. may be Sarah B. Mizell who was listed in the Mizell Cemetery (the information that was sent in Tidbit #1). Joshua and Jehu appear in the 1850 Camden County census extract from Tidbit #1, along with Jackson. Can't tell if Wm. Jackson and Jackson are the same though.
