Historical notes:

Richard Levi Richardson is shown in the Hardin Co., KY census for 1860 and 1870. In 1880, he is listed as, single, in Vernon Co., MO living next to his uncle, Robert S. Richardson. His wife Jennie was born in MO. "Lee" as he was called was next found living in Park City, UT c1890 in what we call today, the recycling business. When the mines closed and the metals market has dropped, Lee moved his family to Portland, OR. He mentioned in letters from there that he was living near the "center of the city" and was still in the recycling business.

Jennie married a Mr. Steele and she is buried as Jennie Richardson Steele in the grave in front of Richard Levi.
