Obituary (image from same page): February 11th, 1873, in the town of Big Grove, Kendall Co., CAROLINE H. RICHMOND, wife of A. Richmond, age 68 years. Deceased was born Nov. 12th, 1804, town of Reading, Windsor Co., Vermont. She leaves an affectionate husband and eleven children - five sons and six daughters, 28 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren, to mourn her loss.

Ben M. Angel notes: Apparently her maiden name was Rogers, according to the Richmond family history posted on her husband's Find A Grave profile. Harris is either a middle name or a name from an earlier marriage - unclear which. Rogers, likewise, could be either a maiden name or an earlier married name. Hopefully someone more clear on this information can correct at some future point.
