  • Notes  Married:
    • "Matthew went to New Orleans and fought in the Battle of New Orleans during the War of 1812 then walked all the way back to Pulaski County. After his return home he built a cabin on Buck Creek. He is buried in Souls Chapel Cemetery in Pulaski County with his wife Lettice." (although Matthew, Lettice and Lettice's father William are said to be buried at Soules Chapel Cemetery - no markers for them have been found there, although there are many Richardsons buried in this cemetery).
