Family of Richey, Joseph


Originally I had Nancy Rhea from Augusta Co, VA as wife of my Joseph Richey.
A "Joseph Richey of TN" in probate court July 1804:
, and I did not see any other Joseph or Nancy Richey's in early TN. However this appears now to be a different Joseph Richey.

Joseph's family possibly moved from TN to VA ~1796, because John was born in VA ~1797.
Vance Hawkins says the Woods came to Gibson Co, IN in 1806 and the Richey's sometime after the 1807 state census and before the 1812 when John Richey served in the Indiana Militia
Note however Joseph' children thru 1813 (except John) say they were born in TN or NC.

other members of the family from early Richey marriages in Gibson Co, IN + William Richey in 1830 census (no marriage record; verified he is not William Richey s/o Simpson in Vanderburgh Co, IN). Additional "Celia Rix" in Pike Co, IN m. Hiram Palmer 1829. Finally, James Richey refered to in early history of Gibson County.

Richey's, Stricklands, Woods, Depriests all live nearby in Patoka, Gibson Co, IN 1840
