Burial of a fatherAntoine Richards

Address: Reed cemetery
Text:

He is buried beside Sally in Massena’s Reed Cemetery. His name on the gravestone reads “Antwine Richards” providing a clue as to how people in Massena pronounced his name.

Sometime between the mid-1970s and the late-1980s, a car smashed into Antoine and Sarah Richards’ gravestone in the Reed Cemetery. I believe that my father (William F. White) said that there was an article in the newspaper describing the accident and naming the driver of the car. Dad did his best to assemble the many pieces of the shattered stone on the surface of the gravesite, immediately behind the support which is still there. Three of his ten children (Chapman, Derius, and Clarinda) are also buried in Reed Cemetery. Their gravestones survive in decent condition. Antoine and Sarah Richards are my great great great-grandparents. (See photos on next page)
