from letter of William R. Bishop, Jr. March 3, 1997
"In a recent letter you asked whether Robert Richardson (c1632
- 1682) had a middle initial or name Martin. I have look(ed) at many of
the original records on him and none (underlined) of them gave initial
or middle name. ..."
"Actually Robert Martin Richardson (1753 - 1803) is not related
to our Robert Richardson but is descended from the Rev David Richardson
(d.1696). I have not found any relationship between David and our Robert,
but have found that it is sometimes difficult to separate their descendants!"

County, Maryland brothers?
"... which came from Robert M's mother Mary Martin ..."
