Richard was born in New Brunswick. Both his parents were from Ireland. They were Protestant (Church of England) so presumably were from Northern Ireland.

Census records indicate various dates of Richard's immigration to the United States ranging from 1884 to 1894. [1]

He married Sarah Fleming, 30 April 1878 at age 22, at Sarah's sister's house. They were married by Reverend F. H. Almon. [2] [3]

In the 1900 census Richard was living in Tewksbury Mass. with his wife and children and his nephew John Howes. He was working as a carpenter in a cotton mill. [4]

He couldn't read or write.
