      Randolph.

      The following copies from entries in an old Bible were communicated in 1904 by Mrs. W. E. Reeves, of Newton, Iowa. The names of the parents of the children born 1700 &c, are not given; but the name Osbome would indicate that they were of the family of the name in Stafford and Prince William. The name Isham was probably given as a compliment to to Isham Randolph of "Dungeness", for the persons named in this Bible record were certainly not descended from William of "Turkey Island." By deed in Prince William County, Oct. 20, 1750, John Randolph, of Prince Wm., and his wife Ann, one of the daughters & co-heirs of Thomas Osborne of Prince William, conveyed a tract of land to Cuthbert Harrison, who had married Osborne's widow. The will of John Randolph was dated Sept. 11,1789, and proved in Prince William, Nov. 5,1790, legatees, wife Anne, daughter Sarah, daughter Peggy, daughter Betsy, daughter Mary Ann, sons John and Thomas Osborn Randolph, son Wm., daughter Mildred Oliver, daughter Mary Tyler, daughter Frances. The will of Wm. Randolph dated August 2, 1792, was proved in Prince Wm. Sept. 2, 1972, legatees: wife Elinor, and children Robert, William, George and Mildred.
