I am retired from a career in dentistry. Now, with a little more time available I find that I am very interested in genealogy. My Grandfather, his aunt and sister were all very active in genealogy research. In fact, they were responsible for the wealth of family historical information we have. I have completed the book that Maurice L. Richardson, his aunt Nettie Converse Pritchett and his mother Lydia Mary Pritchett Richardson all worked hard to compile information for this family history. The book is: "Pioneers to the Present, The History of the O'Leary, Semmes, Richardson, Pritchett and related families." The book was over 46 years in the completion. It will continue to be a work in progress as long as descendants continue. I am honored to have played a part in it's publication.
