The Poulter family moved to Bountiful and tried to make a living, but soon joined a wagon train headed for California. They had a series of adventures before ending up in Carson City, Nevada. It was in this city that Thomas' mother died shortly after childbirth in 1868.

Thomas and Cordelia settled in Ogden as a happy family, they were blessed with a healthy little boy on 22 September 1883, whom they named Charles Leon Poulter. Lee was soon followed by a little brother Thomas Arnold (Arnie) Poulter born 7 June 1887.

The family was devastated. Lee had just turned five, and Arnie was a little over one. The children's heads were shaved in respect and Thomas commissioned Cordelia's headstone himself. He turned the raising of his two children over to Cordelia's parents, Aaron and Lucretia Farr.

Thomas regained his balance and met and married Louisa Elizabeth Lowe on 29 April 1891. They moved to Franklin, Idaho and named their first little girl Cordelia Elizabeth. Thomas would travel back to Utah every year to place flowers on Cordelia's grave and Louisa would cry the whole day. They then moved to Logan and stayed.

The three brothers, Ezekiel, Samuel and Thomas Richardson, are known as such by the will of Ezekiel, who names the other two as his brothers. Ezekiel, evidently the oldest, was the first to come to New England, and was a planter in Cbarlestown in 1630. His departure previous to the making of the will, perhaps against his father's wishes, or possibly having received his share of his father's small estate, may account for the name of Ezekiel not appearing in the will. His baptism is not found at West Mill. as are the baptisms of Samuel and Thomas. Ezekiel probably came with Winthrop, he and his wife becoming members of the Charlestown church, 27 Aug., 1630. Thomas Richardson, baptized at West mill, 3 July, 1608, had wife Mary, who joined the Charlestown church, 21 Feb., 1635/6, and he joined, 18 Feb., 1637/8. Admitted to the First Church in Charlestown in 1637/8 with his brother Samuel.
