R. H. Richardson, merchant and a prominent citizen of Tullahoma, was born in Bradford County, Tennessee, in November 1846, the son of Thomas E. Richardson, whose death occurred in Coffee County in 1850.

When our subject was about six months old his parents moved to Coffee County, settling near Duck River in the Fourteenth District, where he was reared and attended the free schools. He finished his education at Manchester College. January 1, 1868, he came to Tullahoma and entered a store as clerk, and in 1878 began business for himself, and has since conducted a successful general store.

He was married in November, 1868, to D. D. Zell, daughter of F. M. Zell of Bedford County. To them three children have been born as follows: Linda M., born November 8, 1880; Warren W., December 31, 1882; Thomas E., born October 30, 1885.
