The information on Richard's death certificate is a bit incorrect. He was born in Russell County to Hannah Owens and James Twiford. The date of his birth is also wrong. His parents filed a document with his birth at some point, and the information posted comes from that record.

Richard's obituary appears in the "Decatur Herald" on March 28, 1927. His son was Douglass county sheriff Otto R. Twiford. According to his obituary, Richard and his wife moved to Arcola in 1887, where he began farming. Armina died before her husband, and he was survived by his children: James O. Twiford of Newkirk, South Dakota—sheriff of Newkirk county, South Dakota; and daughters: Mrs. Lula {William] Manuel of San Francisco, Mrs. Blanche Brown of Macey, Indiana, and Mrs. Ida [Edward] Delaney of Shade Hill, South Dakota.

Ida was previously married; she was the mother of Glenn T. Roberts and James L. Delaney.

He and Armina married at Sullivan, Indiana in 1885.
