I have Polly Richardson born May 27, 1791 in Corinth, Orange County Vermont. The daughter of Caleb Richardson and Martha Holmes. Martha is the daughter of Samuel Holmes and Charity Bryant. Polly had sisters Charity and Susan. Susan married Benjamin Franklin Muzzey, and Charity married Reuben Downing (my brick wall). Three of Susan's sons married three of Charity's daughters. My gggrandmother was the forth daughter, and only one that did not marry a cousin. Caleb Richardson and Samuel Holmes both served in the Revolutionary War.

Polly, Susan, and Charity had a brother Benjamin. But this Ben would be too old to be the father. He could be the grandfather though.

Caleb's family is listed in "The history of Corinth, Vermont" They later moved on to East Aurora Township, Erie County, New York.

Charity's and Susan's families moved farther on to DeKalb County Illinois by 1865.
