    marriage bond dated 15 Jan 1859; date of bond is not necessarily the date of the marriage, which could be on that day or in the days or even weeks following -- or not occur at all, due to a last-minute change of plans; census records seem to confirm that the marriage took place

      Siddie A. " , 4/12, F, W, born NC
      (There is a John Richards household further down the page, with John Richards being age 44 -- family of origin?)

      1870 census of Pacific P. O., Harris District, Franklin County, NC; dwelling 176, family 176:
      Richards, Sidney: 34, M, W, farmer, no real estate, personal estate 200, born NC, male citizen of US

      ----- Josephine: 7, F, W, cannot read or write

      1880 census of Harris Township, Franklin County, NC; dwelling 23, family 27:
      Richards, Sidney: W, M, 40 or 43, (head), married, farmer, born NC, father born NC, mother born NC

      ----- Saraphna, W, F, 16, daughter, single, domestic labor, cannot write, born NC, father born NC, mother born NC

      1900 census of Harris Township, Franklin County, NC; dwelling 147, family 158 (there are a number of corrections on this page); all born in NC, all parents born in NC; Sidney is the only one who can read or write:
      Richards, Sidney: head, W, M, Nov 1836, 63, m(arried), 30 (yrs married), farm laborer
      ----- Nancy: wife, W, F, May 1842, 58, m(arried), 30 (yrs married), 3 children born, 3 still living,
      Perry, Mary: niece, W, F, Oct 1888, 11, single
      ----- Seth: nephew, W, M, Mar 1878, 22, single, farmer
      (Since Seth is listed on the farm schedule and Sidney is not, it appears that Seth takes primary responsibility for the farm. Both are listed as renting, Sidney as living in a house, while Seth is listed as living on a farm, but they are in the same household.)

      Sidney cannot be found in the 1910 census, so he may have died before then. Can't find Nancy in the 1910 yet. She could be the Nancy who is living with a Robert Richards household in 1920, but she is listed as the grandmother of the head of household, and she had no sons, so, unless one of her daughters married a Richards, she may not be that person.
