Biographical Sketch of Illiam T. Richards

Illiam T. Richards formerly a cattle-dealer, but now retired and living at Orange, was born in the State of New York in 1833. His first employment in that State was as an agriculturist, and then he was a dairyman in Illinois, and later engaged in the dry-goods and clothing trade at Elgin, that State, for fifteen years. He came to California ten years ago, resided at San Gabriel three years and in Los Angeles one year; next he was en-gaged in the cattle business in Texas until three years ago, when he returned to California and purchased the place where he now lives, where he has erected a very neat and comfortable residence and expects to spend the remainder of his days.
March 8, 1858, he married Miss Mary L. DuBois, from Newburg, New York; her father was William DuBois, a prosperous farmer in Medina, Orleans County, that State. Mr. and Mrs. Richards are active members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and worthy members of the best society.
