Looking for maiden name of Mary A Richardson, born abt 1850-1856 in Virginia, married Jonathan D Richardson abt 1874.

Mary Ann died about 1926 in Norfolk, Va. She was the mother of 10-12 children. I cannot locate the marriage record with Jonathan Richardson to determine her maiden name. Her residence in 1880 was Capeville, Northampton County, Virginia. I do not know her exact birthplace... I just believe she was born in Virginia.

Looks like she was born in 1852 and died in 1926 if cemetery info is correct.

Did not find an indication of her maiden name.

    I've seen this record and thought the listed father may have been an error. Never considered married cousins! Very disturbing though.
