The Family of James Robert and Ada Richardson. Richardson Family members still live on sections of the 280 acres homesteaded and purchased in 1904 & 1919. Robert and Ada had 11 children. Three children died at a young age but the rest of the these children grew up and raised their families in the LH area. Robert served on the LH school board and served Jury duty, riding his horse 26 miles to Harrison to serve with a suit packed in his saddlebag. Ada served the community as a midwife and delivered 100's of babies in the area, recording each birth. Their Grandson Jackie J. Hudson is a local historian and has contributed to our Sugarloaf Videos. A few of the family members active in our community include Lemon Family, the Ramsey Family, Foresee Family, Hudson Family and many others. So our Sugarloaf salute goes to the descendants of James Robert and Ada Richardson.
