The following photos are of the Amos Richardson (1791-1878) & Nancy Hinton (1798-1864) Bible. They were early settlers of Polk County, MO, and were buried on their farmland in the Richardson Cemetery. They had fourteen children. All of their children were born in Franklin County, MO, except the youngest, James M. Richardson (1841-1862) who was born in Polk Co. He is also buried in the family cemetery. James and his brothers Preston (1824-1908), and Jackson (1822-1862) served with the Union during the Civil War. Their brother Thomas served with the Confederacy and was never heard from again.

These photographs were taken by Leland V. Starkey (1907-1999) of Norfolk, VA. He was always eager to share what information he had on the families of Polk County. At that time the Bible was in the custody of Bess Nunn of Humansville. I don't know who owns the Bible now. - Fonda D. Baselt.
