James then married August 1848 sister Elizabeth Richardson b. May 17, 1825. She died July 9, 1897 in Canada.

The Richardson women had at least 1 brother Thomas Richardson who lived at No.3 Hope Terrace, Nelson Nr. Burnley Lancashire England (from letter). He had sisters Margaret, Priscilla, and Susannah in England; and a son and daughter Elizabeth. Most of them worked the looms at Lameshaze Mill.
Any ancestry info appreciated.
