Biography of E. A. Richmond
Rensselaer County, New York Biographies





Richmond, E. A., of Richmond & James, general merchants at Hoosick, represents an old Rhode Island family who were among the first settlers of Hoosick. Born in this town in 1853, his father, P. W. Richmond of West Hoosick, was also born here, and has lived so much of a long and useful life within its borders. E. A. Richmond remained upon the homestead farm of his birth until twenty three years old, then engaged in mercantile business at Hoosick, where we find him enjoying a large and well deserved patronage. In 1891 he married Miss Mattie, daughter of J. P. Armstrong of Hoosick, and they have four children. At about the same date Mr. R. C. James became a partner in the store business. Mr. James was also born in Hoosick in 1859, a grandson of Col. Randall James of the Rhode Island militia.
