Old Southern Bible Records: Transcriptions of Births, Deaths and Marriages from Family -Bibles, Chiefly of the 18th and 19th Centuries, page 269 to 270

This is from this source: [This Bible belonged to Mrs. Nesbit Burriss (Jenie Frohn) of Anderson Co., SC & was copied by Leonard Andrea of Columbia, SC a Richey descendant, many years ago. He sent it to the compiler in 1941. In the back of the bible: "Margaret Richey, wife of James, died in the month of Sept 1802. Jas Richey died in the month of Aug 1808 in the 85th year of his life." This fits perfectly with the story handed down that James Richey was a small child when his parents, Alex & Jeane (Caldwell) Richey came to America in 1727.]
