John Whitney Richardson1

M, b. 27 August 1849, d. 8 October 1924
Brother John Whitney Richardson circa-1920 (Provided by the Freestone County Genealogical Society)
     John Whitney Richardson was born on 27 August 1849 at Itawamba County, Mississippi, Mary Berta indicated that Tishmingo County was her father's place of birth. Census records indicate otherwise.1,2 He was the son of Hiram Richardson and Elizabeth J. Bryant.1 He married Mary Louise Cobbs, daughter of Charles Cobbs and Amanda Unknown, on 14 February 1872 at Beenetown, Freestone County, Texas.1 He married Mary Louise Cobbs, daughter of Charles Cobbs and Amanda Unknown, on 21 February 1872 at Freestone County, Texas; This is an alternate date listing.3,4,2 He was ordained in 1894 at Butler, Freestone County, Texas; Baptist Minister.5,6 He was minister in 1897 at Freestone County, Texas.7 He was minister between 1908 and 1909 at Antioch, Freestone County, Texas.7 He died on 8 October 1924 at Antioch, Freestone County, Texas, at age 75.1,2 IN MEMORY OF REV. J.W. RICHARDSON
Rev. J.W. Richardson was born August 27th, 1849, at Marietta, Mississippi; he came to Texas in 1870. On February 21, 1871, he and Miss Mary Cobbs were united in marriage. He joined the Missionary Baptist Church at the age of 17, and on June 10, 1894, at Antioch Church, East of Fairfield, he was ordained to preach, the presbytery consisting of Rev. E.J. Brown, Rev. D.A. Gaddy, and Rev. E.H. Willingham.
During his ministry he baptized 906 persons, and during the same period, he performed the ceremony that made 146 couples husband and wife. He died at his home, East of Fairfield, near Antioch, on October 8, 1924, and was buried in the Antioch Cemetery, Rev. M.M. Sheets officiating, assisted by Rev. H.L. McKissack and Rev. A.J. Goodfellow.
Brother Richardson's wife, Mrs. Mary Richardson, the companion of a long life-tim, survives him; there also survive him eight children: N.L. Richardson, Mrs. Delia Solomon, J.A. Richardson, H. Richardson, C.H. Richardson, Mrs. Jessie Henry, Fred Richardson, and Mrs. Berta Milliken.
There was a great crowd at the funeral, relatives and friends from different portions of the county, to pay the last tribute of respect and love at the passing of this faithful minister of God. Practically everybody in Freestone County knew Bro. Richardson. For thirty years he had been going to and fro in the County, preaching the religion of Jesus Christ; working for a higher and better life, for happier homes, for the upbuilding of our County and State, and for the happiness which lives above and beyond the misfortunes and sorrows of this world. Truly, as the lengthening shadows gathered about this worthy brother, he might have looked back over the record of long life, and have said, as did that wise and most worthy teacher of some two thousand years ago: "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith."
The vagaries, the vain theories and foolish ideas that have sprung up in some portions of our country of late years, under the patronage of some who call themselves Christians, never touched the faith or tarnished the hope of this faithful child of God. His was the old faith; the doctrine of Jesus Christ; his was the 'thus sayeth the Lord of Hosts." Another patriarch sleeps with his fathers; this veteran in the service of the Lord, sleeps well. His work goes on; the labors and the result of the labors of such as he, wever sleeps in the graves where slumbers the dust of the dead. There is a rest for the children of God. Brother Richardson rests.
A FRIEND.2
