      J.N. RICHARDS DEAD
      Word has been received here from Tipton, announcing the death of James N. Richards, aged eighty-two. He was the father of Mrs. Nancy Davis, wife of Thomas Davis, of Arcadia, and was born in Hamilton county in 1838. During the latter part of the 1850s, he moved to Kokomo and in 1857 was married to Almedia Pfaff. He served in the civil war and when he returned from the army he settled in Tipton county where he spent the remainder of his days. His second marriage occurred on August 10, 1865 to Mrs. Louisa Turner Jordan. He was a farmer, for a while operated several thrashing machines and at one time was also owner of a stave factory.

      Although he left this county when a young man, it is possible that a few of the very oldest residents of this locality may remember him.
