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).
