Query: RICHARDSON/CARROLL of Indianapolis

Seek info Joel RICHARDSON born 28 Mar 1812; married Amy/Ama CARROLL 11 Nov 1852 Botetourt Co, VA; died 2 June 1868 (birth & death according to Family Bible)

Bible records name children:
twins born 12 May 1854
Josephus born 20 Aug 1855 VA; married Jennie U. HILL
Mary Elizabeth born 6 Apr 1857, married Charles J. DUGRANRUT 1882, died 13 May 1925
William L born 12 Mar 1859
James Franklin born 19 May 1862

In 1880 Census, Indianapolis, IN, Josephus RICHARDSON lists mother born Virginia.
Joel's son, Josephus, & grandson, William Henry Harrison, both buried Crown Hill Cem, Indianapolis.

Josephus employed by Indianapolis police late 1890s. (Could "billy club" have been his?)

Cannot find anything on death of Joel. Was he in Civil War? Where buried?
