Source: A standard History of Allen County, Ohio: An Authentic Narrative Vol. 2


William Richardson Jr. son of a patriot soldier, was born March 23, 1783, in Rich Valley, in what is now Smyth County, but was formerly Washington County, Virginia and originally Fincastle County.  He died January 21, 1835.  About 1807 he married Rhoda Hicks, born in Bland County, Virginia, in 1787, a daughter of Joseph and Sarah (Totten) Hicks.  She died in Rich Valley, Virginia April 9, 1847.


Family traditions supports the statement that Joseph Hicks was of English descent and originally from Campbell County, Virginia.  He was a soldier of the French and Indian War and in the American Revolution.  Joseph Hicks was the second white man to enter the celebrated Burke's Garden in Virginia, going there as a pioneer.  In what was then Tazewell County, he acquired two hundred and ten acres of land which was surveyed by Alexander Suiter, Sr. under the Loyal Company's Grand, February 27, 1774.  This Alexander Suiter was the first husband of Sarah Totten, who after his death was married to Joseph Hicks.
