I copied and pasted the Chattahoochee county info: here it is again without the web site data: It is a county located in the State of Ga.
It is part of the Columbus, Georgia-Alabama Metropolitan Statistical Area. The county seat is Cusseta, Ga.

Carole, there's still a lot of possible census results. Censuses don't list the county a person was born in, just the state and since he didn't necessarily live in the same county his whole life, it's more important to know other family members names in order to narrow it down.

Rach, do you know if your James Richesin was a soldier? I've attached a clip from a book "Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution". There's also an 1830 Census of two James Richeson's (names are often spelled wrong in censuses), one "Jur" and one "Sev". Unfortunately, the 1830 Census doesn't tell you much, just where they lived and the number of people in their household.

1830 United States Federal Census
about James Richeson Jur.
Name: James Richeson
Township: Regiment 67
County: Monroe
State: Tennessee
1 male under five years old, 3 males between ten and fifteen, 1 male between fifteen and twenty. 1 female under five, 1 female between ten and fifteen and one female between thirty and forty.

1830 United States Federal Census
about James Richeson Sev.
Name: James Richeson
Township: Regiment 67
County: Monroe
State: Tennessee
1 male between fifteen and twenty, 1 between sixty and seventy, 1 female between forty and fifty.

These numbers include the head of household. Since you say one of his son's names was also James, I assume this is father and son. Also noteworthy, on the father's record, just above his name is a Jesse Richeson. I've attached these as well.

There's also someone on ancestry.com with the same James Richesin in their tree... assuming it's not you, lol, they have his father's name as "I R Richesin". No sources though so I don't know where they got that name. If you're not already a member, you can sign up for ancestry.com for free and have access to the family trees, just not the records.

About Richeson - be sure not to rule out looking for Richardson - I always keep in the back of my head that the person giving the information says one thing and the census enumerator hears another.

James Richesin [SIZE=2](c.1790 - c.1838) [/SIZE]

Birthdate:circa 1790
Death: Died in 1838 in Tennessee
Immediate Family:
Son of James and Unknown
Husband of Isabella
Father of William, Dorcas, Irby, Hartwell, Amanda, John, Jesse, and Henderson
Brother of Dorcas, Samuel, Jane, Polly, John, Ann, and Jesse



I'm thinking that the James you have listed maybe the the son of the first James that I listed (but not sure) on this post is the son James info that I have, Monroe Co. is correct (there is an old Richesin grave yard that I have been to, but the markers can't be read and some are just rocks)
(I have my stuff saved on the GENI.com site)
will check into the ancestry.com (the free part of it)

now, how do I save the pages that you posted here so I can make them bigger to read

also, not sure if the James served in the military or not


yes, I understand about the name spelling
my grandfather, his brother joined the military and they misspelled his last name from Richesin to Richeson and he just left it that way instead of changing everything.

thanks so much for the info you have looked up and taking your time to do this.
Rachel

To save the images - if you're using Internet Explorer, just click on the thumbnail, then right click the image which comes up and choose "save image as". Most other browsers should have similar options when you right click.

yeah, I did that but then when I look at the picture it's a very small size and you can't read it
when I make it bigger it's very blurry
