Research pending on photographer
J T Richardson of Celeste, Texas

This J. T. Richardson is possibly the Joseph Taylor Richardson that was briefly partners with Eldridge Walter Packard in Lewiston, Maine, but there is NO evidence so far, that E W Packard was ever in Texas or that this J T Richardson was ever in Maine.

Elbridge Walter Packard
(21 Apr 1870 - 16 Jul 1949)
E. W. Packard was a photographer only briefly around 1893 when he was 23. He had just married Ida Richardson, so Joseph Richardson, a multifaceted businessman became his father in law. By 1896 Packard is working as a salesman and no record after that lists him as photographer.

Joseph Taylor Richardson
(21 Jan 1843 - 23 Sep 1904)

J. T Richardson was the partner of E. W. Packard in 1893 in the photography business. Richardson was also in the shoe, boot and harness business at the same time, partnered with Fordyce C. Farr and George H. Farr, apparently his in-laws.

Photographer: Richardson & Packard
