Richard Dulong's Children
Children of His First Marriage
Children of His Second Marriage
You will note that only three of Richard's twelve children survived to adulthood, married, and had children of their own. Many of his children died as infants while living with wet nurses. Both his wives sent their children to wet nurses. This was not an uncommon practice among the French bourgeoise. It was probably especially necessary since Richard undoubtedly counted on his wives for the smooth running of his inn.
