Mercer County, Ohio Biographies

J. V. RICHARDSON, M. D., who is a leading medical practitioner at Fort Recovery, was born in Gibson township, Mercer. County, Ohio, February 13, 1851, and is a son of Dr. J. C. and Mary G. Richardson, the former of whom was one of the pioneer physicians at Fort Recovery.

Dr. J. V. Richardson, who is the oldest physician and surgeon, in point of continuous practice, at Fort Recovery, was reared here and received his literary education in the schools of this place. He was prepared for college by his father and in 1869 entered the Ohio Medical College at Cincinnati, where he was graduated in 1872. He located for five months at Montezuma, Mercer County, but in September, 1872, settled permanently at Fort Recovery. For several years he was in partnership with his late father, and also with his brother, Dr. David H. Richardson, now of Celina, and Dr. J. W. Blizzard. He carries on a general medical practice, but makes a specialty of surgery, in which he has met with much success. As far bad< as 1891 he was a very successful operator in case of appendicitis and he is frequently called into consultation with other eminent surgeons in his own State and in Indiana. Personally Dr. Richardson is not disposed to accord himself the skill which his many brother practitioners admire in him, but his reputation has been proven on many occasions to be a just one. He is a member of the Northwestern Ohio Medical Association.

Dr. Richardson was married to Sarah Snyder, a daughter of William and Martha Snyder. They have one daughter, Elva E. Aside from his professional labors, Dr. Richardson is a good citizen, taking part in public spirited movements and contributing time and attention to matters of public moment to his community.
