I am a Wisconsin direct descendant of Roswell Richmond, born 1799 in Oswego NY, and Sarah (Sally) Rice. I believe he might be the same one you are referring to. However, there could be another Roswell, as the family seems to repeat names. His son Jacob Russell, born 1835 in Volney, NY is my great grandfather, through his daughter Mina M Richmond (Mrs. Louis B. Larson) of Edgerton, WI. As far As I can tell, the line of Benjamins, Edwards, and Stephens, go back to the same father who settled in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and later in New York. I'm still trying to untangle all of the lines. Multiple use of the same first names is making it difficult.
