Richard-9452 and Richard-12 appear to represent the same person because: These are the same man. I adopted the profile today and when adding parents saw he was a duplicate. I corrected the names to match.

Lither Richard was Joseph Laitas Richard. When you have time please merge the two. You can have the profile to manage as well. Thank you, Audrey Lee Crockett

Go to Pitre-1299 or Richard-12 to see the rest of his family. Richard-12 is where you can find his wife and children as it would not let me add it here.
