Biography of L. T. Richardson
Oswego County, NY Biographies





Richardson, L. T. - Prominent among the group of men who were outspoken in their advocacy of the abolition of slavery, was the late Samuel Richardson of Fulton. He removed to this town in 1838, kept Temperance Hotel for some time, then went into the grocery business, afterwards tending toll gate on the old bridge, and later on the Bowens Corners plank road. Of the Baptist church he was a life long pillar, and of the temperance cause a practical and earnest supporter. For several years before his death he lived with his son, L. T. Richardson. The latter was born at Delphi, Onondaga county, in 1830. During his life he has been largely connected with various public works, a contractor upon the lakes until 1881, when he was appointed superintendent of canals, which position he filled with credit for eight years.
