In Reply to: Re: Benjamin Richardson by Jean Pace of 9628


I think I have something. I have an old yellowed family record that lists John Richardson as the 4th child of Benjamin Franklin Richardson and Sarah Mizell. He is listed as marrying Nancy Albritton, daughter of Richard Albritton. Sr. "They came to Washington Parish Lousiana and stayed a short time." This cites as its source "heirs of Benj. Richardson, Deed Book A, Bulloch County, GA." The records I have state "Richard Albritton, Sr. was an important figure in early Bulloch Co. Ga. He was a native of Pitt county N.C. where he had married Mary Hart, daughter of Benjamin Hart. Richard and most of his family migrated to St. Helena Parish, La.. There on March 30, 1816, he wrote his will." Unfortunately, I do not have a list of John and Nancy's children, but the name Amos is present in every generation. In fact, his brother Benjamin, Jr., my ancestor, had a son named John Amos.
I hope this helps.
