My 7th great-grandfather was born in Yorkshire and came to Virginia where he married Mary Isham. They are called the 'Adam and Eve of Virginia' because from their children would descend many of the most successful and powerful in the colonies. These include: Thomas Jefferson, who grew up with our Randolph family at Tuckahoe Plantation, John Marshall, Robert E. Lee, Presidents William Henry Harrison, Benjamin Harrison, President James Madison's wife Dolley and many other prominent and influential persons. A descendant of Pocahontas married a Randolph.
