CHUICY'S FAMILY HISTORY PAGE

(This site will always be under construction)

Since my retirement I have done a considerable amount of research on my ancestors and the ancestors of my wife, Bobbie Crass. I am entering the results of this research on these pages in order to archive the results, to provide access to others who may be related to the same people, and to receive corrections from those who find errors in the data. - Charles Massey

V.

The Randolphs of Virginia (Uncle Henry's Branch)

Henry Randolph (1623-1673) is sometimes referred to as "Uncle Henry" because he was the uncle of Turkey Island’s William Randolph, progenitor of Virginia’s most prominent Randolph family. For a number of years, conventional research seemed to show that we were descendants of Uncle Henry’s branch. However, DNA tests have proven that this is not the case. Nevertheless, I have done considerable research on Uncle Henry’s branch and didn’t want to throw it away so it is included here. For the genealogy of Uncle Henry’s branch, go to Uncle Henry.
