Generation: 1

  1. 1.  Lillis Richmond was born in Mar 1746 in Little Compton, Newport, Rhode Island (daughter of Ephraim Richmond and Elizabeth Cook); died on 2 May 1808 in Bristol, Ontario, New York; was buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Bristol Center, Ontario, New York.

    Other Events:

    Notes:

    In about 1796, widowed, she came with the Rev. John Smith and a group including all six of her sons to Bristol in Ontario County, New York.

    Lillis married Rev. David Simmons on 2 Nov 1768 in Dighton, Bristol, Massachusetts. David (son of Constant Simmons and Lydia Phillips) was born on 28 Jun 1748 in Dighton, Bristol, Massachusetts; died on 7 Jun 1786 in Drowned in the Taunton River, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

Generation: 2

  1. 2.  Ephraim Richmond was born on 5 May 1723 in Little Compton, Newport, Rhode Island (son of William Richmond and Anna Gray).

    Notes:

    "He settled with his family in Little Compton in 1743, and his first three children were baptized there. He had a slave who was a hatter, who would go to Providence and work there at his trade. The slave helped to support his owner in his old age." [Little Compton Families, citation details below.]

    The entry for him in Little Compton Families, which calls him "Ephraim William Richmond", calls him a son rather than a grandson of Sylvester Williams and Elizabeth Rogers. But the entry for Judge William Richmond and his wife Anna Gray, including the passages quoted from William Richmond's will, makes it clear that Ephraim was their son, not Sylvester's.

    Unreconciled is the fact that Little Compton Families says that Ephraim Richmond was born 5 May 1723 and that his father William Richmond and his mother Anna Gray married on 8 Jul 1724.

    Ephraim married Elizabeth Cook on 19 Jan 1744. Elizabeth (daughter of John Cook and Alice Southworth) died in Apr 1797 in Tiverton, Newport, Rhode Island. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
