Over the years, the communities of the Richloam area saw many people call it home. Unfortunately, with the passing winds of time, many of their stories and history has been lost or forgotten. There were several families that had a large impact on Richloam. Some are just names on a federal census, but some have made it through the trials of time. Each person and family that called Richloam home did not have an easy go at life. There were no paved roads, no electricity, no indoor plumbing and a very limited general store for supplies. This is their story.
