Hi Rose!

In searching for the parents of Thomas Richards b. abt 1809.
I haven't checked and compared the early census records against published Internet sources yet, ie "familysearch" and "ancestry.com" etc.

I want to see if their lists of children are complete for all my suspects. Before I take an "educated" guess!
And of course I will still need a documented source.

We know that the 1st wife of our Thomas Richards was Mary Philbrook and that she is buried in Youngtown cemetery in Lincolnville, ME. Her stone says Mary wife of Thomas Richards died June 9, 1854 ae 48yrs 6 mths. Their was also an inscription that I could not read.

Besides Joseph and Susan Young Richards,
My other suspects for Thomas Richards are sons of Dodipher and Sarah "Little Fawn" Richards:

Dodipher Jr. and Mary Wentworth Richards had a son named Thomas L.Richards of Searsmont, ME born in 1802. But he was married to Charlotte House. So I was able to eliminate him.

Jonathan and Hannah Wadsworth Richards lived in Lincolnville and had children born about the time of Thomas.
Their son Ezekiel (1796 - 1863) is buried in Youngtown.

Rev. Joseph and Elizabeth (another Young!) Richards also lived in Lincolnville and had children born then.
Their sons Nehemiah (1792 -1876)and James G.(1806 - 1880)
are also buried in Youngtown.

From limited Internet census info I have the following clues:

1790 census has
James Richards of Camden 3 5 4

Dodefer 1 0 1 - he had son Thomas married to Charlotte Hause of Searsmont - son of Dodifer

Jonathan 1 1 3 wife Hannah Wadsworth son of Dodifer and Sarah Ch: Lois, Ezekiel, Hannah, Seth,Isaac, Pheobe,

Joseph 1 0 5 wife Elizabeth Young son of Dodifer

Joseph 3 5 3 of Searsmont, Waldo, Maine (1790 Lincolnville Ducktrap census)

1800 Census Canaan (Back Settlement of Ducktrap)(Lincolnville)
from
Sheepscot Joseph Richards
Sheepscot Joseph Richards, Jr.
Sheepscot Joseph Richards (3d)
Sheepscot Jonathan Richards

1810 RICHARDS JONATHAN Hancock County ME 597 Lincolnville
