Isabella "Bell" Richardson

Bell was the daughter of Jerry Richardson. She was my great-great grandmom's, Lucy Richardson, sister. Her first husband was Mr. Austin. I do not know his first name.

She married a second time to a Mr. Jefferson, sometime prior to 1900. I am not sure whom her husband was. The first possibility is Mr. Thomas Jefferson (May 1830-?), who was living next door to Bell on the 1900 census report.

The second candidate was Mr. Augustus Jefferson (April 1838-?). He was living a few houses away, and her son shared his name. I suspect that Thomas and Augustus were close relatives, perhaps brothers.

The census indicates that the Jeffersons were from Mississippi.
