Descendants of William Randolph

FOR A SHORT HISTORY OF THIS RANDOLPH FAMILY IN AMERICA, GO TO THE RANDOLPH STORY

This Randolph Line is perhaps the most prominent of the Randolphs in America. Conventional research convinced me that we were descended from this line, but the results from DNA testing has proven otherwise. However, I am including the results from this research on this web page because I didnít want to just throw it away.
