Below is an excerpt from my g.grandmother's booklet. Her grandfather was Asa Richardson. Because of the handwriting, I have done the best I could to read and spell the names as she did.

"My grandfather, who would be your great great grandfather was born in Falmouth, Eng. His father died when he was a small boy and he was adopted by a man who I believe became his step father. He always called this man "Old Father Yorke." My grandfather had two sisters, Constance and Nicey Richardson, but I do not know if he did or did not have any brothers. When he was a young man he came from Falmouth, Eng. to Falmouth, Maine and there married my grandmother who was Margaret Robbins. They had a large family of children, Susan, Sarah, Mary, Margaret, John, George and William. William was my father and your great grandfather. He married my mother who was Mary Abigail Bray, daughter of Johnathan and Elizabeth (Howard) Bray. My grandmother died the day I was 13 years old and was nearly 90 years old. My grandfather died somewhere in the spring about 3 or 4 years later. He was 94."
