The 1920 Census of Waco, McLennan Texas
J.L. Richardson, age 35 was living with his family. His brother Walker, 28, was also in the household with his wife. Both were identified as being brick layers with the public works, meaning they worked for the city of Waco not having their own business. The "W" following indicated they were workers versus employers. Both brothers were born in Texas to father born in Alabama, mother in Georgia.

The 1920 Census of Dallas, TX
Wilbur Richardson, 43, born in Alabama to both parents born in Texas, was a Brick Mason/house. This was followed by a "W" indicating he was a worker versus an employer. While the census data was sometimes wrong, his place of birth and parents POB's, might indicate he was not related to the brothers in Waco.

The 1900 Census of Marlin, Falls County, TX
Luther, born Aug 1885 in TX
Walker, born Mar 1888 in TX
Clay, June 1892 in TX, living with their parents:
Udorous(as written and transcribed) M, born Jan 1857 in Alabama, Brick Layer, not employed past 9 months.
Susan, born April 1857 in Georgia, mother of 10/6 living
--Since the father, Udorous, was a brick layer, is that why he named his son "Clay?"

The 1930 Census of Fort Worth, Tarrant Co
Walker Richardson, brick layer, contractor, born TX to both parents born in AL
1930 Census of Waco, McLennan Co
Clay Richardson, born TX, to both parents born in AL, brick layer/house, worker
1930 Census of Waco, McLennan Co
Wilbur Richardson, age 52, born in TX to both parents born in US, brick layer house, worker.

Based on the Census, it would be pretty difficult to find what projects they were involved.
