Six Generations of Richardsons:To and From the Big Muddy Valley Book Description:

"This book presents the stories of the first six generations of the Richardson branch of the author's family in North America. The story begins in 1774 when John Richardson travels from Yorkshire, England to what became Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada. Settling on land originally homesteaded by politically displaced Acadians, John and two subsequent generations of Christopher's spend their lives farming in Sackville. In 1883, Robert Hay, John's great grandson, moves his family from their farm in Sackville to a homestead 3 miles east of Custer City, South Dakota in the heart of the Black Hills. While failing in its goal of saving Robert's wife Annie from Tuberculosis, it brought our family to the American West. After his death in 1897, three of Robert's sons, Fred, Bob, and Will, joined forces to create the Richardson Brothers Ranch in the Big Muddy Valley in what is now Sheridan County, Montana. Joined by their sister Maggie, the four homesteaded 1720 acres and formed a ranch over five miles in breath adjacent to the Big Muddy Creek. Fourteen children were born to the Richardson brothers on this ranch. These children form part of the "Great Generation" and the stories of their lives growing up on the ranch through the Great Depression, surviving World War Two, and raising families completes this book. The last of this sixth generation died in 2011 so these stories cover 237 years of the author's Richardson family in North America."--Back cover.
