Sarah Richardson was an older sister of Mazzie Richardson (1794?-1864), the wife of Andrew Martin (1790?-1856).
Parents Joseph & Sarah moved with most of their children to western Rockingham County about 1795, settling on the North Beaver Island Creek, on or near the Stokes County line. Since daughter Sarah married in VA in 1798, she seems to have moved later as she shows in the 1810 Rockingham County Census as a head of household with 4 children, 3 males under the age of 10 and one female over the age of 10.
All three sons, Wesley, Cephus and Thomas married sisters, Emelia (Millie), Paliny, and Lavinia Jane Payne, respectively.
