    Our family tree lists William Thomason to be the husband of Cynthia Richmond. They were married in Beckley, Raleigh Co., WV. Through census records and two other webpages on Rootsweb, I found she was
    the daughter of Samuel Richmond. I'm told Cynthia and William had 10
    children, which I'm in the process of trying to confirm. I was also told they moved their family from WV to TX in 1880 and later to Indian Territory. Although, I have names of their children, their spouses and their children, etc., I have had difficulty finding out concrete information on most. I would really feel more comfortable giving out information knowing it's fact rather than just passed down. Not that passed down is bad by any means, but seeing the names in print is nice - somewhere, anywhere.
    Here's what I have on my direct descendant line from Cynthia:
    1. Cynthia Richmond
    2. Julia Thomason (married a full blood Chickasaw)
    3. Annie Seely
    4. Olive Jacobs
    5. Oleta Johns
    6. Jodi Lee Presky (me)

    Jodi Lee Presky indicated that she is a direct descendant of Cynthia. I am a direct descendant of Cynthia's sister, Mary "Polly" Richmond, who married William Gwinn. I have descendant information for this branch of the family. Sharon provided the following:

    1 Samuel C RICHMOND II
    ----------------------------------------
    Birth: 1 Mar 1801, New River Falls, Greenbrier Co., VA/WV

    Father: William Cody RICHMOND Sr (1752-1850)
    Mother: Mary Christina KAYLOR (~1758-1807)

    Samuel Richmond was a farmer and owned 197 acres of the Waters of New River, the fine bottom land grant in Fayette Co., VA, acquired in 1849. He was wealthy and a leading citizen of Union sentiment during the Civil War. He died in 1863 at Richmond Falls, VA, murdered by confederate bushwhackers as he ferried across the New River. He had come from Greenbrier Co., VA around 1822 to Richmond Falls. He was shot in the back by Jefferson Bennett. Bennett was later shot by one of Sam's sons. The Richmond's felt that made things even.

    Materials provided by Herbert Kiser, copied from an article on Jess P. Richmond in a History of Beckley, WV "...John A. Richmond, 'a man known as of excellent natural sense and ability, and of fine personal appearance,' John had very few opportunities for an education but was a successful business man throughout his entire career. He was among other occupations, one of the first postmasters in the broad Richmond area. He was appointed in April, 1856, at about the same time General Alfred Beckley received his postmaster's appointment, by President Buchanan, and the post office was called 'Richmond Falls.' In 1871 it was changed to New Richmond. His widow, Mrs. P. S. Richmond, succeeded him as postmistress."
