OK here goes.
FS seem to have some wonky birth dates.
1940 census confirms that son Andrew was a School Janitor working for the Board of Education.
According to his 1942 WW2 draft he was working for the Board of Education
ADDRESS 255 1/2 10TH SOUTH STREET, ESSEX, NJ
Andrew Keer Richardson born Essex, NJ on 26 Apr 1896!

Thomas and Anna had 4 children listed on FS.
3 male and 1 female. Something isn't right
How can they have a male child on 20 Oct 1892 and the next on 15 Apr 1893.
That's only 6months difference.
I think one is a still birth!

At 1900, Anna said she had 3 children born living and all still living?
Any stillborn children would not be included

EDIT:
A search of New Jersey deaths confirms that 20 Oct 1893 ??? is a death date of a male child aged 0yrs

On ancestry it's just given me 1930 for a Frederick T Richardson b 1894 ??
Not too sure about it

looking at the census it would appear the US are the same as ours for ages/names

It does look as though you have found him

Thank you

Thank you Ann

Just been trying to do his siblings and came across a census that instead of Edinburgh had Edmboro
I wonder if the same person wrote both of the documents!!

So I was just going to put a reply to rootgather

Thank you

Thank you for looking

I wondered if "Edmbro" was a mistranscription of Edinburgh? The ship may have taken on passengers in Liverpool and Queenstown and he may have boarded in Ireland?

Not finding him on any US census records though.

1881 census is the right one

Not sure about the passenger
Place of Origin is it Edinburgh if so where does the Ireland come into it?
Age fits
