Franklin Dewey Richards was a member of the Council of Twelve Apostles from 1849 to 1898. He was the son of Phineas Richards and Wealthy Dewey, and was born in Richmond, Berkshire county, Mass., April 2, 1821. He was the fourth of his father's nine children.
......He fortunately visited Father Snyder's family again in the summer of 1842, just as he was convalescing from an almost fatal attack of typhoid fever; and in December of that year he was wedded to the youngest daughter of the house—Jane Snyder. He remained with the Saints at Nauvoo until the latter part of May, 1844. Having been ordained a High Priest by Brigham Young May 17, 1844, at Nauvoo, he was called to depart upon a mission to England.

Eleven spouses are listed for him on FindAGrave. He also apparently married an older sister of Jane's that had been widowed.
