Hill Richardson and Sarah Lee

Hill Richardson was born about 1775 in Rhode Island, according to the 1850 census, or in Massachusetts, according to a biographical sketch of his grandson, John Lee Richardson. The parents of Hill Richardson are not known for certain but DNA evidence links the Richardson family to the Townsends of Dutchess county, New York (yDNA line) and the Richardsons of Barre, Massachusetts (probably Hill's mother's family).

Hill married Sarah Lee. Sarah, also known as Sallie, was christened 2 Dec 1770 in the Goshen Congregational Church, Lebanon, New London, Connecticut, the daughter of Nathan Lee and Sarah Metcalf.

Hill enlisted February 28, 1813 and fought as a private in the War of 1812. Records indicate that he served from February 1813 to August 1814, first in Captain Jonathan Scott's Company, then in Captain Brooks Harrington's Company, 55th Regiment, New York Infantry Militia.

History of Crawford County, Iowa

A pioneer, a soldier and a farmer, who is now serving as state oil inspector, John Lee Richardson of Denison has led an active and useful life, in the course of which he has made many friends and materially assisted in promoting the public welfare.

He was born in the village of Cassadaga, Stockton township, Chautauqua county, New York, September 6, 1837, a son of Nathan and Asenath (Johnson) Richardson, who were also natives of New York. The father, who was a farmer, was born and reared at Cooperstown, Otsego county, and removed to Palmyra, Wayne county, and from there to Chautauqua county. Subsequently, he came to Iowa and died in Linn county in 1870 at the age of seventy-one years. His first wife was Asenath Johnson, who died in Chautauqua county, New York, at the age of forty years.
There were five children by that union, namely: Nancy, who married James W. Barber, of Lake county, Ohio. and is now deceased; Reuben, deceased; Jane, the wife of Samuel Whiting of Lake county, Ohio, who died in the Civil war. and she is now also deceased; John Lee, the subject of this review; and Martha, who was the wife of H. B. McKean of Linn county, Iowa, and is now deceased. After the death of his first wife the father married Mrs. Morton, by whom he had three daughters: Sarah, of Huron, South Dakota, who is the widow of Leander Batchelder; Abia, the widow of David Cargill, and Julia, of Polo, Linn county, Iowa, the wife of P. A. Yates. All three of their husbands were soldiers of the Civil war. The father served as teamster in the war of 1812, and he and his first wife were members of the Friends church.

The paternal grandfather of our subject was Hill Richardson, a native of Massachusetts. He was a farmer and a soldier of the war of 1812. His wife was Sallie Lee, and they had eight children: Ammi, Nathan, William, Areuna, John, Freeman, Louisa, and Cynthia.

The Richardson family is of Norman origin and its history dates back to the time of William the Conquerer, Many noted names in English history were identified with this family. The first American ancestor Ezekiel Richardson, arrived in this country from England in 1630. He was soon followed by two brothers, Samuel and Thomas, and assisted in founding the town of Woburn, Massachusetts. Edward and Moses Richardson fought side by side in the Revolutionary war, and at the laying of the cornerstone of Bunker Hill monument, June 17, 1825, not even Lafayette, who was present, excited more interest than these brothers, who rode together and were the observed of all observers.

Moses Richardson, another member of the family, was awakened at midnight, shouldered his musket, and at five o'clock in the morning was dead---one of the first to fall at the battle of Lexington. He with three brothers was buried in a trench in the Cambridge cemetery, and in 1870 the city of Cambridge erected a monument to the three men, upon which is inscribed, "0, what a glorious morning is this!" The coolness of Captain Israel Richardson, who was in the Mexican war, won for him the title of "Fighting Dick." The motto of the family "Trust in God" has ever sustained them, and almost without exception they have been found worthy, whether subjects of the British crown or following the stars and stripes in the land of their adoption.

John Lee Richardson was reared in Chautauqua county, New York, and came west with his parents in 1844. Subsequently, he went to the frontier of Minnesota, where he lived for six years, hunting and trapping. He also drove a government team and carried the mail on foot through a forest of one hundred and sixty miles, only one white man living on the route at Mill Lake, an Indian trader by the name of Fox. He came to visit his parents in Iowa, and while in this state enlisted in Company A, Twentieth Iowa Volunteer Infantry, and served with great credit for three years.
During the entire period he never received the slightest injury, although he participated in many important battles and never missed a march in which his regiment took part. He was present at the battle of Prairie Grove, Arkansas, the siege of Vicksburg, in the Red River campaign under General Banks, at the siege of Fort Morgan, in the Mobile campaign, and also participated in the last fight of his regiment at the storming of the works of Fort Blakely, on the 9th of April, 1865. After receiving his honorable discharge he came home and worked upon his sister's farm in Linn county, Iowa. for several years, her husband' having died in the army. He then removed to northern Missouri, where he continued for five years, but since 1874 has made his home in Crawford county, the first six years being passed upon a farm of one hundred and sixty acres, which he purchased in Soldier township. He moved to Denison on account of his wife's health, but he still owns the farm, one of the highly improved properties of the neighborhood.

On the 14th of October, 1868, Mr. Richardson was united in marriage to Miss Mary McArthur, a daughter of James McArthur.

They are both members of the Baptist church, in which he has for a number of years served as deacon. He is identified with John A. Logan Post, No. 58, G. A. R., and has been its adjutant for many years. Politically, he gives his support to the republican party. He was deputy county treasurer two years and has also served as township assessor and as assessor in Dension. For about eight years he was janitor of the North Side public school, and it is to his credit to say that he has the friendship and good-will of all the children. Although he has passed the Psalmist's three score years and ten, he is still deeply interested in affairs both public and private and discharges his duties as state oil inspector with a fidelity that meets the general approval. As a soldier he was faithful and true and in the various relations of life he has ever attempted to perform his duty, thus meriting the high esteem in which he is held by all with whom he comes into contact.

The Chautauqua Genealogist

Ami Richardson
Ami Richardson moved to Chautauqua County, New York, from Ellisburg, Jefferson County, sometime before 1820. A couple of years later his parents, Hill and Sarah Richardson, and his siblings followed. Ami, born 1797, was in his early twenty’s when he moved to Chautauqua County.
In 1820 Ami’s parents, and brothers: Nathan, (born 1799); Freeman, (1802); William, (1806); and Aruna, (1810), were living in Ellisburg, Jefferson County, New York. By 1830 they were all living in Pomfret and Stockton Townships, Chautauqua County.
I think the Richardson men liked to keep moving and were always looking for the new areas that opened up. Maybe once they were in an area like Ellisburg for a decade or so, the more remote and less populated places, like western New York, beckoned them. Ami’s father, Hill Richardson, moved from Otsego, New York, to more remote Ellisburg, 143 miles away, before 1800. He would have traveled by boat on waterways, and oxen and wagon through wilderness, with maybe a cow and horse in tow. With his wife and family be moved again, 310 miles west to Stockton in the 1820’s, following Ami’s lead. Ellisburg is a long way to Stockton in the early 1800’s. Travel was slow and difficult, there were poor roads, and there were few accommodations. They probably planned to arrive in the spring. They were farmers and would have planned on putting in the crops, building a house and barn, and brought their tools and implements ready for work.
Ami married Charlotte Smith in 1822. Their children were: Nathan, (born 1828); Lyman, (1829); Philander,(1830); Bersha, (1834); Almina, (1841); Edwin, (1843), and Clarissa (unknown date). Arni stayed in Stockton until sometime in the 1840’s. He is listed as a shoe-maker in the 1850 census living in Jefferson, Logan County, Wisconsin. Some of his children moved with him, but Philander, and Nathan stayed in Stockton.
Ami spent about 20-25 years in Wisconsin with many of his siblings, and children, before returning to Stockton by 1870. He is listed living with Philander in 1870. He is not in the 1880 census and assumed passed away. He and Charlotte were possibly buried on Philander’s farm in Stockton.

Sarah Lee's Parents are Nathan Lee and Sarah Metcalf

By Darryl Boyd (original page)
I knew Sarah was born around 1871 in Connecticut from the 1850 census and also from a biography of one of her grandson's John Lee Richardson.
So I set out to try to eliminate about 4 Sarah Lee's born in Connecticut around that time. I had done two of the 4 when I got to this Sarah Lee. Records showed her Father as Nathan Lee and Mother as Sarah Metcalf and suddenly a bell rang out.
I remembered on the 1800 Census of Otsego New York where Hill and Sarah is living, on each side of her is Nathan Lee on one side and a Benjamin M. Lee. Also on that same page is a bunch of Metcalfs.

After studing the records for Lebanon, CT, I realized :
1)  Nathan Lee was the father of a Sarah Lee born in 1771
     (on the 1800 Otsego, NY census and living next door to them and not on the 1810 Lebanon census, so he moved to Otsego NY)
2)  Her mother was Sarah Metcalf
3)  They had a son named Benjamin Metcalf Lee  (Benjamin got his name from Sarah's father, Benjamin Metcalf)
      (Benjamin M. Lee on the 1800 Otsego, NY census and living next door to them )
4)  Hill and Sarah Lee have children named
     Nathan - after her father
     Cynthia - after her sister
     John - after her brother
5)  They had a son named John Lee (brother to Sarah Lee)
      (John is a few farms away from Hill and Sarah on the 1800 Otsego, NY )
6)  Sarah Lee's Father had a brother named Stephen Lee
     (Stephen is a few farms away from Hill and Sarah on the 1800 Otsego, NY )
7)  Sarah Lee's mother Sarah Metcalf had a brother named Zebulon Metcalf
     (on the 1800 Otsego, NY census Zebulon Metcalf is living 12 farms down from Hill and Sarah)
8)  Zebulon Metcalf had several sons all born in Lebanon
     Abel Aur Metcalf  
     Tracey Metcalf     
     Roger Metcalf      
     Charles Metcalf   
     (on the 1800 Otsego, NY census and living 12 farms down from Hill and Sarah on seperate farms around Zebulon Metcalf)

All these people were born in Lebanon, Connecticut and moved to Otsego, New York
