My Great Grandfather was George Washington Richmond, son of Francis Preston Richmond and Catherine Powell. The notes I was given showed Francis Preston Richmond B: 1756 was from possibly Scottland. The story goes that he was possibly one of three sons of a Scottish Duke and he was married to a Mary (possibly Wilson, Wilkerson or Henson). the story goes that after returning from a trip to England or Scottland he was murdered in California in 1789. However I have not been able to find anything to prove any of this. It has been a dead end at Francis Richmond B: 1756.
