Richmond Family of New York & Georgia

The William R. Richmond family and my Richmond family had the same lineage from the first John Richmond through Edward(5), father of Silvanus. While my Richmonds left New York and headed to the Midwest, William Richmond went from New York (his mother, Rachel, was in Columbia Co., NY, in 1850) to Augusta, Richmond Co., Georgia.

William's first wife, Eva Potts Richmond, was born 25 Oct 1802 and died 28 January 1835.

The marriage between William R. Richmond and Sophia Stark is given as 22 Aug 1885 in the J.B. Richmond book (above). This is obviously an error; Henry, son of the second marriage was born in 1839 according to the book. They were married in 1835 and were living in Georgia by 1850.

Elizabeth, daughter of William R. & Eve (Potts) Richmond married Hopson Pinckney (see the Pinckney family blog here).

Julie, daughter of William & Eve Richmond married Charles Stark. She and Charles are living with Christopher Stark in Lyme, CT, in 1860, 1870, and 1880. Christopher Stark and Phebe Tabor Jewett* were the parents of Charles Stark. Christopher was the son of Nathan & Rebecca (Palmer) Stark according to this website. Julia Richmond Stark's stepmother, Sophia (Stark) Richmond (1800 - 1864), was the daughter of Nathan & Rebecca (Palmer) Stark.
