From The Sylvester Richmond Probate File In Lapeer

Some of the Lapeer County, Michigan, Probate files are online, at FamilySearch.org, but the files start at #446, so #23 isn't one of them.

Is Sylvester Richmond a descendant of John Richmond, the original immigrant, whose lives are chronicled at my Richmond & Connected Lineages blog?  I don't know.

On May 26, 1896, a tornado passed through the area and killed a John Porritt, age 75, and two of his daughters-in-law.  He may have been the John Porritt named in this probate file.
