Thanks to everyone for your very helpful replies. What I have found
fits well with family stories about the origin of our name
RICHARDSON. It looks like my great-great-grandfather Adolphus Noah

The dates match perfectly, but also there is a story that Noah's
father, called "something like Newman REICHARDT", was a miller in
"Gollin, Posen" and died quite young of a heart attack after lifting
a heavy sack of flour. There was a flour mill in Golina and Nachman
RAICHERT died aged 48. Noah would have been 10 at the time.

Going even further back, the database shows Nachman's parents:
Hemkiet (Jochym?) and Hawe, born in the 1770s perhaps.

Eventually, when I'm sure of what I have I'll put it on the internet
in case it's useful. I have good documentation for most of the family
history, back to around 1700, but there some parts that are still too
hypothetical to be offered as any kind of truth.
