William Edward Richmond

William E. Richmond, the son of Emory and Lodema (Merritt) Richmond, was born in Mecosta County, Michigan.  He married Elva Nancy Oney in Chetek, Barron, Wisconsin in 1907.  Their daughter, Ida Virginia Richmond, married Adolph Joseph Bergeron and died in Alberta, Canada.  Did William and/or Elva also move to Canada?  I don't know.
