It is believed that Andrew Richmond died as the result of an accident with a runaway sled on Freezeland Mountain. The present owner of the property says the accident happened on the hill just behind the old Richmond two story log home, which is still standing and is estimated to be over 100 years old. The present owner of the property uses the old home for storage as the home is not inhabitable. 

There is a Richmond family cemetery on the property about 300 yards from the road at the edge of the woods on a knoll and within sight of the old Richmond log home. There are approximately twenty graves in the cemetery, but only one of the inscriptions on the headstones is legible, and that is for Francine Richmond the daughter of Andrew and Sarah. Most of the grave markers in the cemetery are just large field stones.
