Do you have any of the next generation. I am looking for a ___ Richmond who mar a Mary ___, b 1796/97. They had children --
1) Charles b 1811/12 NY mar Sarah Ann Gardner 1833 Campbell co KY
2)Electa (Electra) b 1817/18 NY mar Lewis W. Gardner in Cincinnati, OH 1836, moved to Covington, KY before 1850. In 1850 census with Mary Richmond living with them. In Cincy, Mary Richmond lived next door to a John Gardner in the 1840 census.
3) Mary b 1823/24
4) Elizabeth b 1825/26
5) Joshua mar 1839 Campbell co KY
I suspect the Richmonds and Gardners moved from somewhere in NY to Cincy, OH together and two of their children mar into the other family. Need help finding what county in NY they came from and who their parents are. Several counties in NY have both names. Ginny

This is all I have on this Richmond line, I received the information from so many sources, that I can't verify any of it accurate. Please check it again your info. and let me know if there are any correction or changes. Do you have more information before Edward? I have heard that he is the son of John, do you have knowledge of this? Thanks so much!

John Richmond b.1594 in Ashton-Keynes, Wiltshire, England, was the Richmond who originally emigrated to America, in about 1635. He brought his son Edward, b. 1632 in England. This Edward married Abigail Davis and secondly Amy Bull, daughter of Gov. Henry and Eliza Bull. Amy died 11/1696. Their son Edward b. 1658, married Sarah___. Their son Benjamin b. 1/10/1696 married Mary___. Their son Edward b.7/7/1723, m. Eliz. Powell, d. c.1804,in Spencertown NY. Your list takes it from there. Did you know that John Richmond was directly descended from Roaldus de Richemonde or Richemonte, a knight who came over with Wm. the Conquerer.
Hope this helps your research.
