After death of Richard's first wife he married a second wife, said to be a sister of his former one. She bore him Thomas and James. The last mentioned was born May 9, 1757. In him is first manifested the head of this grand and happy throng before me today. -------------------- THE FOLLOWING IS FROM LEVIN WILSON'S ADDRESS TO THE KNOWLES FAMILY REUNION ON SEPTEMBER 24, 1896

Richard obtained one of those hardy, energetic Finnish ladies for a wife. She possessed a large portion of that religious culture for which the people of her country were noted at that time. She bore him several children, named Richard, Zechariah, Edmund, and Prudence. (The Noles of Posey County, Indiana, are descendants of Zechariah).
