Jesse P. Richmond, pioneer resident of South Haven, Kan., who cast his lot with Kansas over forty years ago, is a native of Ohio, where he was born October 5, 1831, on a farm in Jackson county. He is a son of Lineus and Sarah (Pickard) Richmond. The father was born at Litchfield, Conn., October 4, 1801, and in 1816 came to Jackson county, Ohio, where he resided until 1834, when he removed to Knox county, Illinois, which was then a sparsely settled country, and considered the heart of the wild and unbroken west. Here the senior Richmond spent the remainder of his life and died in 1888. Sarah Pickard, his wife, was a Virginian, born in 1816. They became the parents of nine children, as follows: David, John, Mary Ann, Emily, Sarah, John C. and Solomon, all of whom are now deceased, and Jesse P., the subject of this review; Eliza and Guy W., who reside at Centralia, Wash.

Jesse P. Richmond was married January 25, 1852, to Miss Elizabeth Stinson, daughter of John and Hannah (Cunigum) Stinson, of Knox county, Illinois. Mrs. Richmond was born September 22, 1830, at Zanesville, Ohio, her parents being pioneers of that State.

To Mr. and Mrs. Richmond have been born seven children: Ullman, born October 26, 1852; Thomas G., born August 22, 1856; Ellery J., born April 4, 1858; Harry, born April 3, 1860; Jesse A., born June 3, 1862; Nettie, born August 2, 1864, died October 18, 1865, and Charles N., born September 6, 1866, is now deceased. Mr. Richmond came to Sumner county, Kansas, in 1877, locating on Government land in South Haven township. He was one of the first settlers of Sumner county, and here engaged in farming and stock raising, and has met with satisfactory success from the start. In 1910 he retired, after having gained a competency, and is now enjoying the fruits of an active and well spent life. He has been a life-long Democrat, but never aspired to hold public office. He has been a Mason since 1860, and the family are members of the Congregational church.
