Putnam District, Connecticut, Probate Records, 1856-1920, Volume 11, Pages 425-426, Letter of Administration, Bond and Inventory of James Richmond estate; FHL microfilm FHL US/CAN Film 1,376,328.
James Richmond (1821-1912) is my second great-grandfather, and the father of my great-grandfather, Thomas Richmond (1848-1917). James' wife, Hannah (Rich) Richmond (1824-1911) died the year before James died. The seven children listed were all living at the time of this record. I wondered why another daughter, Hannah Rebecca (Richmond) (Smith) Hoyle (1859-1947?), widow of Frank N. Smith and Edmund A. Hoyle, was not mentioned in this probate record. Further research in Massachusetts Vital Records indicated that she died on 7 January 1907, leaving three Hoyle children.
I found this probate record on microfilm at the Family History Library in Salt Lake city on 11 February 2015.
