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
