Randolph County Old Settlers Index

The Randolph County Historical Society is compiling a database of every known settler (land owner) within the county as of 1829, the data of the organization of Randolph County and those who are known to have resided in the county prior. This includes spouses and families, and slaves if known. Marriages, burial sites, military service, images, legal description of real property owned, etc. This is a joint effort with the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Text of biographies and obituaries will be included. This database will provide a resource to enhance and better enable research into local history by gathering into one source an index. Though its main value will be to genealogists, it will also serve as a catalog directing researchers to extant primary and secondary sources.
