Carmy Crawford Richardson and Selina Amelia Eastwood Richardson

Iím Looking for descendents of Carmy Crawford Richardson (as appears in McKean Co., PA records). Also, have seen:

Carmi Crawford Richardson
Carmia Crawford Richardson
Crawford C. Richardson
C. C. Richardson
Crawford Richardson

Carmy Crawford Richardson was born in 1854 in McKean Co., PA. He married Salina A. Eastwood on 11 Nov 1874. Selina also known as Lina A. Eastwood or Lina Eastwood.

In 1901, they moved from McKean Co., PA to Washington state.

Selina was born 29 Mar 1855 and died 30 Oct 1926.
Selina died in Seattle

Here's a newspaper clipping about Selinaís death:

Mrs. Lina Richardson, for many years a resident of Comes Creek, died at 12:30 Saturday morning, October 30th at the home of her daughter, Mrs. George Tripp of Seattle, Washington.
Mrs. Richardson had been seriously ill for several months, though in failing health for a long time previous.
She was born on Comes Creek, daughter of Eben and Ellen Eastwood. In 1874, she married Crawford Richardson and for many years they lived on Comes Creek.
In 1902 they moved west to the state of Washington. During the closing years of her life she lived in Seattle, Wash., where they have two married daughters, Mrs. Fred Parson of 5727 Ryan St. and Mrs. George Tripp of 5125 Orchard St. by whom she was tenderly cared for during her years of failing health and last sickness.
Mrs. Richardson was 71 years, 7 months, 2 days old and is survived by her husband, two daughters, seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
The funeral was held at the Advent Christian Church of which she was a member. Interment was made at Nooksack, Wash. where they had made their home for many years.
(Port Allegany "Reporter-Argus", Thursday, November 11, 1926)

They had two daughters:

Evelyn Elenor Richardson who was born 26 April 1885 in Port Allegany, McKean Co., PA.
Millie E. Richardson, born 2 May 1878, Liberty Twp, McKean Co., PA

Evelyn Elenor Richardson married George Tripp.

Millie E. Richardson married Frederick A. Parsons (maybe Frederick A. Parson or Frederick Parson) on 22 Dec 1897 in Wrights, PA (W.W. Tribly, M of G Ė Minister of the Gospel). Frederick Parsons was born 11 Jul 1874 in Coudersport, PA. Frederick Parsons was a woodsman.

I would love to locate descendents of these families. I donít have any record of Carmy Crawford Richardsonís death, but only know that it must have been after 30 Oct 1926 since he survived his wife.

Iím not directly descended from this Richardson, but I am descended from his brother, Merton Pardon Richardson. Merton married Selina's sister, Alletta M. Eastwood! Carmy and Merton had a father named John. I also have a great deal of information on their mother. If anyone has any information on this Richardson line, please contact me Ė thank you! Chuck Richardson
