John Q. RICHARDSON was born on 11 MAY 1828 in Topsham, Orange County, Vermont. He died on 21 FEB 1916 at Elgin, Wabasha County, Minnesota.
John Q. Richardson, Elgin, is among the most substantial farmers of Wabasha county. His grandfather, Zachariah Richardson, was of English descent, and his father, Thomas S., was born in New Hampshire. Ruth J. Smith, who became the wife of the latter and the mother of this subject, was a daughter of John Smith-a soldier of the revolution and of the war of 1812-of Scotch descent, and was born in Vermont. John Q. Richardson was born in Topsham, Orange county, Vermont, May 11, 1828. Up to twenty years of age his life was spent on the home farm, attending the common school, and at this time he had taught one term. For some years he was engaged alternately-attending school and in teaching and other employments to earn money to educate himself. He was a student in the academies at East Orange, Corinth and Bradford, and was subsequently principal of a grammar school in Newark, New Jersey, for nine years. In the year 1858 he visited Elgin and purchased 180 acres of land on section thirty-four. He removed thither from New Jersey in 1862, and has made his home here ever since. His domain now includes 265 acres and is finely improved. Both stock-raising and grain-culture occupy his attention. The next year after settling here he planted a large number of soft maple seeds, with a view to sugar-production. Having been often assured by eastern friends that soft maples would not make sugar, he resolved to give the matter a test. In the spring when the seedlings were a year old, he cut off the top of one and tied it down where the sap would run into a tumbler; when the wind had evaporated the water from the tumbler, a very fine sugar remained, and he became satisfied that it was safe to plant out his trees. He now has two hundred rock maples and thrice as many trees of the soft variety growing and makes sugar from both. He finds that the latter make a lighter-colored and more pleasant flavored sugar than the former. October 2, 1853, occurred the nuptials of J. Q. Richardson and Cordella C. Colby, of East Orange, Vermont. Both are members of the Congregational Church. Mr. Richardson is a member of Elgin Masonic lodge, and an adherent of the Republican party. He has served his town several terms each as assessor and treasurer. He has one living child-Ralph W., born June 19, 1867. Frank, the first-born, died in infancy, and Emma C., the youngest, died January 12, 1884, aged fourteen.

RICHEY, WILLIAM A.
William A. Richey was born September 20, 1844, in Kittanning, Armstrong county, Pennsylvania. He is of Irish extraction. About the year 1755, William Richey emigrated with his family from Ireland and settled in what is now known as Allegheny county, Pennsylvania, being one of the first pioneers who settled in that section. To protect themselves against the encroachments of the hostile savages, the settlers built a fort, the site of which was on Mr. Richey's land, which became a general rendezvous of the settlers. It was located on the Monongahela river. He left a son, William Richey, who was born in Ireland in 1736; came with his father to America and took part in the thrilling events of the early pioneer life; fought under St. Clair against the French at the time of the former's defeat; was a farmer during his life and died at the age of eighty in 1816. The latter also left a son William, who was born in Allegheny county, Pennsylvania, in 1789; was by trade a copper; was a soldier in the war of 1812, stationed at Black Rock on Lake Erie, and detailed on two occasions to escort prisoners to Pittsburg through the immense forests of Western Pennsylvania; returned home after the war and October 14, 1814, was drowned in attempting to cross the Monogahela river during a storm. He left a son, Samuel Richey, born in Allegheny county, Pennsylvania, January 25, 1813; was taken by his mother when but five years old to Armstrong county; afterward became a riverman and served as engineer pilot and captain. When the first petroleum excitement arose, he engaged in transporting oil; enlisted in the Mississippi marine in 1863, and followed the campaigns of the Mississippi, Yazoo and Red rivers, participating in numerous engagements; returned to the oiil regions and remained about ten years; in the spring of 1875 he went to Illinois and in the following May (1876) settled in Sedgwick county where he still resides with his family, a hale and hearty man. In 1839 Samuel Richey was married to Ann Boney, a lady of English descent, who died in 1863. The issue of this marriage was seven children of whom William A Richey was the third.

William attended the private and public schools of Kittanning until at the age of fifteen he entered the academy of that place, where he remained one year. For one year he was employed as clerk in the dry-goods house of an uncle at Emlenton, after which he engaged in speculating in the oil regions of Pennsylvania.

In September 1862 he enlisted in Co. K, 78th Pennsylvania Infantry, and was ordered to Buell's command in Kentucky , participating in the fall campaign against Bragg. The regiment reached Nashville in October and was placed on garrison duty until the 26th of December when it engaged in the Stone River campaign, and took part in the engagement of Murfreesboro, December 31, 1862, and January 2, 1863. June 24, 1863, the regiment started on the Tullahoma Campaign, and assisted at the battle of Liberty Gap; remained at Deckard Station until August; took part in the battle of Snake Creek Gap and other minor engagements and afterward in the battle of Chicamauga, September 21, 1863. The regiment remained at Chattanooga until November 23, and then took part in the battle of Mission Ridge. May 2, 1864, he with his regiment, started on the Atlanta campaign and was in the battles of Tunnel Hill, Buzzrd's Roost, Resaca and other fights. On the 13th of June, he was detailed as orderly on General Carlan's staff, and was active in the series of fights that culminated in the burning of Atlanta. He marched to the sea with Sherman; joined Kirkpatrick in his raid on Aiken; rejoined the main army, and was at the burning of Columbia; marched through Fayetteville and Raleigh and was one of ten who first entered these towns; from the camp at Cross Roads, marched to Richmond a distance of one hundred and eighty-five miles, in six days, and going to Washington, participated in the grand review and was discharged June 26, 1865, at Louisville, Kentucky.

He returned to Kittanning, and thence to the oil regions. In November 1866, he was engaged as general agent of J. H. Wheeler & Co., of Elmira, New York, dealers in patent medicines, and traveled for that house. In May, 1867, he became traveling agent for M. Hulings, dealer in boots and shoes.
He started for the West, February 15, 1868 and for a few months was employed in the construction of the Union Pacific Railroad, at Cheyenne. He returned to Nebraska, August 27 and became clerk in the house of C. H. Nichols & Co., of Omaha, in their branch store at Fremont.

In September 1869, he went to Atchison, Kansas and after four months, traveled over the State seeking a location, arriving at Burlington, February 27, 1870 and remained until April 14, 1872, acting as salesman and book-keeper for the house of Daniels & Blackburn. At that time he settled in Wichita, and he and his brother built the Richey House in which they have been very successful. They have also dealt in real estate and engaged in farming, and have now a very fine farm of six hundred and forty acres in Sedgwick county, besides farming lands to the amount of one thousand and fifty acres in adjoining counties. They also own the Richey block one of the finest structures in Wichita.

He cast his first vote for Lincoln and has always been a Republican. He takes great interest in political affairs and has been delegate to county conventions, and also to the Congressional convention of 1876. In religion he is liberal. He is a member of the Masonic order and of Wichita Lodge, No. 99. He is Past Grand in Wichita Lodge, No. 93, I. O. O. F. and Past Chief Patriarch of Wichita Encampment, No. 29.
He was married March 5, 1871, to Miss Emma C. Colby, daughter of O. B. and Rosamond (Cady) Colby, of Burlington, Kansas, formerly of Ashtabula, Ohio. They have had two children, only one of whom is living.

Mr. Richey is five feet eight inches high, stoutly built, regular features, broad, high forehead, dark hair and dark brown eyes. He is social in his disposition, generous to a fault, energetic in business, conforming strictly to business rules, and has an unimpeachable record for honesty and integrity.
