More research is needed to determine the exact day that Richard was born (13 April 1821 or 29 April 1821). Birth month and year data are supported by information from the 1900 U.S. Census and 1851 Scotland Census. Birth data from family tradition on Family Tree at FamilySearch.org will be used at this time. More research is also needed to clarify Richard's date of death as data from Richard's headstone and an entry in the the collection, "Idaho, Southeast Counties Obituaries, 1864-2007," are inconsistent. Death data also reflects family tradition from Family Tree.
