John Richardson, jr., married Sarah, daughter of Samuel Oxx, and followed in his father's footsteps, making farming his life work. He died in 1893, in his sixty sixth year. C. W. Richardson was educated at Haverling Academy, and for eleven years gave his attention to the manufacturing business, and in 1887 invented the celebrated loose bottom tins, now so widely known as the "Perfection Cake Tins," and at once began their manufacture, which he is now carrying on, together with a large line of housefurnishing specialties, under the firm name of Richardson Manufacturing Co. In 1875 he married Della, daughter of R. W. Davis, by whom he had two children.
