Linda, I have no doubt that you are attempting to quote sources and credits, but I must inform you that you have misread a document and with out the entire document to show you it will be harder for you to see. Henry Randolph I had 2 sons by his first wife Elizabeth, they were Henry Jr. NOT HENRY II he saw from the 2nd wife to replace Henry Jr. who had died, and William. William having died also and in the message you posted you put [(now Dod being pleased to take, William my son to himself.I doe hereby confirm to William and his heirs all my rights and title ect. to said negro woman...] It would be interesting to see the rest of the information following the word woman .... All the document you are showing proves is that Henry Randolph and Jane the mother of William Rooker had joint ownership of a slave. The death of Henrys son William can be confirmed from the copy of his bible that was presented to William And Mary Collage by John Randolph of Roanoke, who was his cousin, and the bible tells the day of the week as well as day he died. I can not lay my hands on my copy at the moment to tell you the exact date.
