  1. I have this "In Memorium" card, found in Richard Richards historical records. Richard Richards and your Edward Thomas Richards list the same birth place. If not brothers then at least cousins. My records indicate quite a few Richards moved to Canada in a short time frame. Later some moved to Nebraska. I am working my way through a pile, small but still full of info.
