Richardson Family of Campbell Co. TN

Looking for information on Richardson families in East Tennessee. Most of my relatives lived in Campbell County, Scott County, and Morgan County. Many of them branched out and moved to Ray County Missouri.

Looking for information regarding John H. Richardson b. 1854 in Campbell Co. TN

Im looking for information about my 2nd Great Grand Uncle, John H. Richardson b. 1854 in Campbell County, TN. He married Minerva Richardson on 4 March 1875 and a bit of explanation is in order.

Minervas maiden name is Gray. She was born in Campbell Co. TN in 1849, the daughter of Joseph and Nancy Gray. In December of 1864 she married Simeon Richardson, the older brother of John H. Richardson, and another 2nd Great Grand Uncle to me.

Sometime after their wedding Simeon and Minerva moved to Richmond, Ray Co. MO, and during their time together they had three children: Nancy Richardson (1866), Daniel Richardson (1867) and William Richardson (1869).

Simeon passed away in 1874 and after his death his widow Minerva moved back to Campbell Co. TN, where she married Simeons younger brother John H. Richardson, in March of 1875. And thats where the trail ends.

I have searched and searched for the whereabouts of John and Minerva from 1875 onward with no luck. Does anybody know what became of them?

Any help would be most appreciated.
