Here’s what little I know (or think I do!) about my Brown line:

1. Dean Richardson

2. David Richardson, born 17 Nov 1935 in Erie, Erie County, PA; died 16 Oct 1998 in Stanford, Santa Clara County, CA

3. Owen Richardson, born 02 Dec 1899 in Baltimore, Baltimore County, MD; died 05 Dec 1993 in Edinboro, Erie County, PA

4. Allen Chapman Richardson, born 18 Jun 1859 in Baltimore, Baltimore, MD; died 21 Dec 1908 in Erie, Erie County, PA

5. James Arnold Richardson, born 09 Dec 1830 in Baltimore, Baltimore, MD; died 12 August 1883 in Carroll County, MD

6. Margaret Dukehart Brown, born 19 Mar 1805 in Baltimore County, MD; died 02 Oct 1846 in Baltimore County, MD

The picture here is of Margaret Brown Richardson, scanned from our copy of “Memories”, an original typescript prepared by Louise Grant Smith for each of her sons (we have Owen’s copy.) Family records indicate that Margaret’s father was James, but I’ve not been able to find any dates or documentation for him. I could obviously use some help extending this line back further.
