Father*Caleb Richardson b. 1799, d. 28 Sep 1870
Mother*Celia Humphries b. 8 Mar 1802, d. 28 Jul 1893
     William Richardson was born on 3 March 1821 Indiana. He was the son of Caleb Richardson and Celia Humphries. William and Elizabeth Bush were married 16 June 1842 Note, this marriage, plus cemetery records make this a possibility. However, cemetery records have W. H. dying Feb 10, 1879. He shouldn't be on the 1880 census with this Eliz, but he is, and the age is not quite correct.

More research is needed. William Richardson died 10 February 1879, Tipton County, Indiana at age 57 years, 11 months and 7 days, age 57y 11m 7d. He was buried Richardson Cemetery, Tipton, Tipton County, Indiana, listed as W H.1
