Note: In a 1964 letter to Mr. and Mrs. G. Robert Richardson, Esther (Anna Richardson) Hutchinson wrote: "I'm also enclosing a tintype.... The tintype is of Dad's [George Walter Richardson] father [George Edwin Richardson] after his wife [Celia Bethany Denison Richardson] died + back of him is the artistic "Willie" who was a natural-born artist who died at 17. Aunt Celia - 12 is holding Aunt Ellen two, + 7 yr. old Dad [GWR] at the right. At the left is 3 yr. old Aunt Mary - Martha's mother. Martha got these pictures recently from an old trunk of hers, + hopes Bob will appreciate having them, since he is the 5th George Richardson right down the line."
