RICHARDSON posted by Jeanne RICHARDSON on Monday, November 10, 1997

I am searching for information on the family of Aaron RICHARDSON, who moved to Delaware County from Ohio in c1820. He had a brother, David. They were supposedly born in England. Aaron had many children, including Rev. Scoot Richardson and my ancestor, Benjamin F. Richardson, who moved to Orange County, Indiana. Does anyone have this family in common with me? Is there any more information about the family in Ohio and England? I would love to correspond with any other descendants.
