He married at Pewaukee, Wis., October 12, 1881, Helen Naomi Clark. He was a graduate of the Normal School at Whitewater, and taught school a short time; then engaged in commission and grain brokerage business in Minneapolis, Minn., where he resided in 1896.

The Joel Warren Richmond family was in Minneapolis, Hennepin Co., Minnesota in the 1900 census.

The daughter of Joel Warren & Helen (Clark) Richmond, Mrs. Helen Ivah (Richmond) Jerome, wife of Albert C. Jerome, was in the DAR. In Hennepin County, Albert and Helen (who had been married 1 year) were living with Albert's brother, Waldron and two others in 1910. In 1920 Albert & Helen were still in Hennepin Co., MN, along with their daughter, Margaret (age 4) and their son, Waldron (age 3). In 1930 the same family group, Albert, Helen, Margaret and Waldron, were still living in Minneapolis.
