Edward Richmond #2458 of Lapeer, Michigan

Edward Richmond (#2458) lived and died in Lapeer County, Michigan. He was related to my Thomas Richmond (son of Elijah who was both 941a & 2456 in the J.B. Richmond book). Was it Edward's influence that encouraged Thomas to move to Lapeer Co., Michigan, rather than Walworth Co., Wisconsin, with his parents and siblings?

See this WorldConnect link or my Lapeer database for more about Edward Richmond.

Edward Richmond (#2458) married Susan, who was born in NY in 1802 and died in Lapeer Co., Michigan, September 3, 1848. He may have married 2nd, Mrs. Phebe Clute (nee Bragle?), 11 Apr 1859, in Lapeer Co., MI. Many members of this Richmond family are buried in the Hollenbeck Cemetery, Lapeer Co., Michigan.
