Family history prepared by Robert J. Morris Sr. around 2007 is the source for the children of Robert Richardson & Ruth (Lark) Richardson, added to the existing child, "Mary (Richardson) Disney.

1861 Census for Ward 4, Godrich (now spelled Goderich) township, Huron county, Ontario province, Canada, confirms Robert Richardson (age 65) & Ruth (Lark) Richardson (age 64), still living with two of their boys, John (age 18), & Joseph (age 22), and living in their own home, their married son, James Richardson (age 29), with his wife Susanna (Welwood) Richardson (age 23), and child, Ann E. Richardson (age 2).

Also listed on the same page of the census are two Churchill families, including John Richardson's future wife, Elizabeth Jane (Churchill) Richardson, (age 8 at that time), as well as many Cantelon family members, cousins of the Disney's.

Received family tree info from my Father, the Great, Great Grandson of Ruth (Lark) Richardson, stating that the date of her death was Oct. 9, 1877, not Oct. 6, 1876. Until I can find the source of this info, I will not change it on her profile
