Per the Christian Advocate: No 2, 16, February 1856, Page 4, Col. 3:

 

Col. John G. Richardson, son of Francis and Martha Richardson, was born in Sumpter County, S. C., Feb. 28, 1785.  In 1809 he married Martha Dubose, daughter of Daniel and Mary Dubose, of the same state.  In 1810 he emigrated to Mississippi Territory, and settled in Wilkinson County.  He had scarcely established himself in a home in his adopted country, when war with the Indians and with Great Britain called him to share in its hardships and dangers.  He commanded a volunteer troop of horse, and acquitted himself in such a manner that he was chosen, successively, major and colonel in the regiment in which he served.  After a union of eighteen years, he and his wife were parted by the death of the latter.  She had borne him eight children, all of whom, except one infant daughter, survived her.  He was afterwards twice married, his second wife living but four months.  His third wife was survived by him four or five years.  Before his death, and within a short time of that event, two sons, a daughter and a son-in-law, in quick succession followed each other to the grave.  In 1830 he removed to St. Mary's Parish, La., where he continued to have his domicile until his death.  Centreville, Miss., Feb. 7, 1856.  William Winans.
