    About the Randolphs, I misread my notes about Jesse S. Randolph. He was not the father of John; instead he was the son of Sarah Ann Harris and John Randolph

      About the Randolphs, I misread my notes about Jesse S. Randolph. He
      was not the father of John; instead he was the son of Sarah Ann
      Harris and John Randolph and died as a newborn infant in 1855.
