    1. [S1135] William Richardson [bigrich73@gmail.com], 25 Feb 2011.
      My name is William Richardson and I am a descendent of William Zeno Richardson (great great grandfather) through his son Noah B. Richardson...I have not been able to link W.Z. Richardson to any of the other Richardsons in Moore County. The only clue that I have recently found is a letter in Liahona: The elders' Journal, Volume 10 from 1910 where Ms. Martha E.Medlin Halcomb (b. 1860 in Moore County, NC) recounts that her mother Polly Ann Medlin (m.John Lacker Medlin) had a brother named William Zeno Richardson who was married to Martha. She also states that her mothers first name was Sarah. I am at a dead end and unsure where to proceed from here. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
