My ggGfather was Thomas H.R.Jett, son of Lucy Randolph, dau of Harrison Randolph. Is this info from a copy of the handwritten entries or a transcription? I have Thomas' father as Thornton, not Morton...any clue which is correct? Also, are Lucy Randolph and Lucy Burwell Randolph the same person? If not, where did Lucy Burwell Randolph come from?

In reply to the spry old lady who you said married and had children at age 104.

Which Lucy do you make this statement about.

Do you speak of the Lucy Randolph who was the daughter of Harrison Randolph and his first wife Elizabeth Starke that was born Oct. 10, 1783 and married Morton Jett?

Do you speak of Lucy Ann Jett daughter of Lucy Randolph and Morton Jett?

Do you speak of the Lucy Burwell Randolph daughter of Edward Randolph and Granddaughter of Harrison Randolph who married John A. Bolling?

Do you speek of theLucy Wade Searcy the daughter of William W. Searcy who on Nov. 25, 1818 married Beverly Randolph?

Do you speak of Lucy Anderson Randolph who was born Feb. 7, 1822 and was the daughter of Lucy Wade Searcy and Beverly Randolph?

As there was 5 Lucy Randolphs in the Harrison Randolph Bible it would help for you to use full names or identify the Lucy Randolph you speak of for one to answer your question or at least identify the husband of the said person.

Well she must have been a younger sister of Sarah for Sarah was much older when she birthed her child.

Hi Leslie

I am interested in the bible records for Harrison Randolph. Did the records, list any slaves, born while living with him? I have traced my family, African American Randolphs, to the slave farm of Beverly Randolph, Sr. and later Jr both living in Rutherford County Murfreesboro TN. The descendents still own the farm, and live there. My gggreat grandfather, James Randolph was living with Beverly Jr in the 1870 census. My ggggrandfather James Randolph was born in Virginia, I am assuming while on Turkey Island, or in Tuckahoe Virginia. I have access to a bible page from Mary Randolph, where she list the birth and death of slaves, however I am looking for a record from Harrison which probably willed his slaves to Beverly. Any information you could give would be greatly appreciated.
