Richardson Family, Cecil County, MD
I am currently searching for the ancestors of Daisy Richardson Lyle. A deed to their property lists two Richardson men in the recitation section namely Stephen B. Richardson and Enoch Richardson. These men purchased property from Bertha M. Scarborough (W.E.B. No 27 Folio 135, Cecil County, MD).
Enoch Richardson who was born in 1852 in Maryland. In the 1880 census (Elkton) he is listed as head of the household which included his wife Mary, age 42 and his children Sarah 5, Gertie 3 and Thomas 1m. Stephen B. Richardson was b. in 1838 in Maryland. His household included his wife Anna E. age 30 and children; Martha J. 13, Sarah J. 8, and Budd S. 5.
I am also researching several families that lived near Griffith Chapel AUMP church including: Boddy, Lyle and Webster (via Sarah Gordon, Richmond, VA). These families appear to have been FPOC.
