Notes
a. Note:   1876 Voters & Taxpayers, p818 RICHARDSON, GEO. W., Farmer, Sec. 33, 160 acres, val $8,000, Rep., from N.Y. * * * Sycamore True Republican, Saturday, 2 July 1887 Mr. George W. Richardson, one of the old settlers of DeKalb County, died at his home, two and a half miles southeast of Genoa, on Wednesday last. Mr. Richardson came from New York and settled in this county about 1838. He was about 60 years of age, and by honesty and industry had accumulated a competency, being the owner of one of the finest 160 acre farms in the county. Four children - two sons and two daughters, and a faithful wife, are left to mourn his loss. The funeral services at the M.E. church in Genoa yesterday at 11 o’clock were attended by a large number of mourning friends. * * * G. W. Richardson, on of the ol[d] settlers,died at his home south of town Wedne[s]day last, and was buried in the Genoa cem[e]tery on Friday. Funeral services were held a[t] the M. E. Church, at which there was a ver[y] large gathering of his friends and neig[h]bors. Mr. Richardson was born in the stat[e] of New York in 1825, and came to this stat[e] when eleven years of age; was married to Mis[s] Eliza Hazlett in the year 1850. Of this unio[n] there were five children, four of whom, wit[h] the wife and mother, remain to mourn th[e] loss of husband and father. Mr. Richardso[n] was a manly man and by his personal wort[h] and pleasant demeanor commanded respec[t] wherever he went. Integrity to principles an[d] loyalty to truth were a part of his very bein[g.] A long residence among the people in the community endeared him to all. He was [a] modest man, never self-asserting or boisterou[s] in his manner, but tender hearted and gene[r]ous. Mr. Richardson had been in poor health[h] for a number of years, and in 1861 took a tri[p] to Colorado, hoping the changes incident upo[n] travel might prolong his days. About is[x] weeks ago he was prostrated by disease, an[d] during the time of his illness suffered muc[h] pain, and on last Wednesday afternoon he e[n]tered into rest. He was a christen man who[se] life accorded with his profession. He walk[ed] worthy of the covenants he made in the hous[e]hold of faith, till he was transformed from th[e] church militant to the church triumphan[t.] When health permitted, he was a regular a[t]tendant upon the means of grace and always[s] appeared willing to testify to the goodness o[f] God whenever an opportunity presented itsel[f] in class or prayer meeting. The church [of] which he was an honored member will mis[s] him; the community in which he was interes[t]ed for so many years will miss him; but in the glorio[us] anticipation of the reunion we may expect [_] clasp glad hands in a country where [_] tears are and where sorrow [is] unknown. A devoted husband, indulge[nt] father, kind neighbor, upright citizen, and [an] exemplary Christian has left us. The serm[on] was preached by Rev. Satterfield, from [_] words, "A devout man, and one [____]
