Stephen Richardson was born 1794 in Maine. In July 1826, in answer to a Mexican plea to relieve famine in Yucatán, Richardson chartered a vessel called the Little Zoe, loaded it with corn and lard, and sailed for Campeche. He was ordered away from Campeche by port authorities and was detained so long at Tampico that his cargo spoiled. In October 1827 he was in Saltillo petitioning the government for redress of his losses, but the matter remained unsettled in June 1828. In the fall of 1835 he joined the volunteer army under Francis W. Johnson and took part in the Grass Fight and the Siege of Béxar. He died in Houston on July 6, 1860.
