I was going through some genealogy papers from my father-in-law LaMar R Pincock and found the following stories about several of his Richards ancestors. Some if them were shared at various gatherings of the Richards Family Association. These stories were all typewritten on the old long form family history records which didn’t lend themselves to be easily scanned fully. They have been digitized and reformatted to a standard size (8 1/2 X 11) page.
Let me list his relationship to these ancestors:
LaMar R Pincock
Willaim Aaron Pincock father
Alice Parker Richards grandmother
Samuel W. Richards great-grandfather
Phineas Howe Richards 2nd great-grandfather
Joseph Richards 3rd great-grandfather
Franklin A. Richards gave a nice summary of the three sons of Joseph Richards who wound up in Utah including his grandfather Phineas Howe Richards. They can be found here: remarks-by-franklin-a-richards
The other documents all relate to Samuel W. Richards. This first one describes how he received Oliver Cowdery’s last testimony of the restoration and includes that testimony. It can be found here: samuel-richards-oliver-cowdery-testimony
There are other recollections of Samuel W. Richards by Ben Harries here: to-the-family-of-elder-samuel-w-richards and D. J. Watts here: recollections-of-d-j-watts-about-samuel-w-richards
I always like to find more information about ancestors than you can just find out from the family group sheets, pedigree sheets and even census records and this is a gold mine of such information.
