Anderson Hoyt Richey was born in Abbeville, South Carolina and later lived with his wife Rosa and their two children, Anderson and Margarette in Chicago.
Based on the 1920 Census taken January 5, 1920, he was a 48 year old widower who lived at 86 Richey St. in Abbeville, South Carolina, a couple of doors down from his brother Norman and his wife, Emma. He was laborer at an oil mill.
By 1930, Anderson H. Richey had returned to Chicago and had remarried. His wife was Hattie E. according to the 4/11/30 census. By this time, his daughter Margarette Rosa was married and living in Houston; however, Anderson Christopher remains listed as a member of the household. Anderson Hoyt lived in Chicago for 30 years and developed a late career (last 7 yrs. of his life) in real estate. At the time of his death, the family home was at 5006 S. Michigan Ave.
There appears to be a discrepancy in the name of Anderson Hoyt Richey's mother. On the one hand, his death certificate indicates Edith Martin as his mother while on the other hand, Marjorie Blount's baby book of 1915 has written Louise Victoria Pickens as his mother.
