Greetings Fellow List Members,

As a new member of the list, I'm not familiar with former discussions. So I would like to submit the Richardson lineages of Eastern Kentucky and Western North Carolina for reproof, corrections, deletions, additions, and of course, most importantly, for documentation.

This data is extracted from the Knott County Historical Society's Electronic Surname Files. It is submitted by the various members and researchers of the Society - so discrepancies appear. For those who connect into these lines we can proffer more detailed information as to the contributors and their sources.

Thank you,

David R. Smith, Pres.
