In the autumn of 1609, an accident which happened to Captain Smith forever severed his connection with the Virginia colonists. While sleeping in the boat in which he was returning down the river to Jamestown a bag of gunpowder exploded mangling and burning his flesh in the most shocking manner. He sprang overboard to allay the pain and extinguish the flames and was with difficulty rescued. The wounds soon grew dangerous and Smith tormented by bodily anguish, and weary of the mental anxieties in which his position involved him departed from Virginia never again to return. He left behind him four hundred and ninety colonists, three ships with seven boats and twenty-four cannon, an ample stock of provisions, tools, clothing, ammunition and domestic animals.

Not withstanding this abundant supply of the necessaries of life, the colonists were by waste and bad management soon brought to want. Six months after Smith's departure the colony was reduced to sixty persons who subsisted miserably first upon roots, herbs and berries, and finally upon the skins of horses, and even upon starch. One starving wretch actually disinterred and devoured the body of an Indian who had been slain and buried. Another killed his wife, "powdered her," or, in other words, salted her, and thus for a time prolonged his life. But for this deed of despair the murderous cannibal was afterwards hanged. During this season of horror Captain Ratcliffe headed a party of thirty men who set out to trade with Powhatan inveigled by his specious arts. They were all slain but one, a boy named Henry Spilman, who owed his life to the intervention of Pocahontas and who remained for many years among the Potowamack Indians, or Potomacs.

The Indian Princess would appear at this period to have forsaken her father and to have placed herself under the protection of Japazaws, the chief of the Potomacs. The historians of the Virginia colony attribute this abandonment of her home to her unwillingness to remain a witness of her father's constant massacres of the English. It is believed, too, that she had incurred Powhatan's displeasure by her frequent interference in behalf of the invaders. In the year of 1612, Captain Argall, who had arrived in Jamestown with two ships laden with provisions -- which however proved insufficient went up the Potomac to procure corn from the natives. He formed an acquaintance with Japazaws who had previously been a friend of Smith's and was still an ally of the English. The chief incidentally mentioned to Argall that Pocahontas was living upon his territories, her asylum being known to a few trusted friends only. Argall immediately resolved to obtain possession of her person as a means of forcing Powhatan to a peace with the colony. He secured the cooperation of Japazaws by promising him in recompense a bright copper kettle a bribe which always proved irresistible to the Indians the sachem, however exacting a pledge that Pocahontas should not be harmed while in English custody. Japazaws in turn induced his wife to join in the scheme in the following adroit and characteristic manner:

Japazaws' wife, acting under instructions, affected an extreme curiosity respecting Argall's ships, and expressed a desire to go on board. Japazwas, however, had often visited the vessels of the colonists, and did not care to go again; he would not take his wife, nor allow her to go alone. She became importunate and he became impatient; finally her persistence grew so intolerable, that he positively beat her. Upon this, we are told, "she actually accomplished a few tears!" All this occurred in the presence of Pocahontas, and such scenes were frequently enacted for her benefit. At last Japazaws appeared to yield to the evident affliction of his wife, and said that however irksome a visit to the vessel might be to himself familiar as he was with the English marine he was nevertheless willing to gratify her innocent curiosity, and if her friend Pocahontas would consent to accompany her, he would be happy to escort them both.

The amiable Princess, who was far from suspecting treachery and who was unable to endure the apparent distress of her friend, readily consented. They were cordially welcomed on board the vessel and hospitably entertained in the cabin. Japazaws trod stealthily upon Argall's foot to intimate that his part of the bargain was accomplished. The guests were then paraded about the ship, Japazaws taking every opportunity to repeat his indecorous summons to the Captain for the delivery of the kettle. At last he received "the brilliant wages of his sin." Argall decoyed Pocahontas to the gunroom and there told her that she was a prisoner and must remain with him as a hostage until a peace could be arranged between himself and her father. She wept bitterly at first but was doubtless consoled in her grief by the intolerable affection manifested by the two Japazaws. They absolutely howled when they learned that the innocent maiden whom they had induced to confide in their protection was to be thus treacherously treated. They ceased their lamentations upon a signal from Argall that they were altogether overdoing the matter, and with their kettle filled to the brim with toys and glass jewelry trudged merrily home to their wigwam.

Pocahontas dried her eyes upon the reflection that the English to whom she had rendered such signal services could treat her with inhumanity. The vessel sailed down the river to Jamestown, which the Princess had not seen since Smith's departure. On their arrival a message was dispatched to Powhatan, to the effect "that his daughter Pocahontas he loved so dearly, he must ransom with the Englishmen, swords, pieces, and tools he treacherously had stolen." Though the venerable sachem is said to have been much troubled at his daughter's captivity he was still so deeply offended at the undiplomatic language in which the demand was couched that he sent no answer for the space of three months. At the end of that time he liberated seven Englishmen with as many rusty, disabled firelocks, one axe, one saw, one canoe laden with corn. He further offered to make peace and give a bonus of five hundred baskets of corn, if his daughter were restored. He could return no more muskets, however, as they were all mislaid and he could not compel the whites who lived with him to return free volunteers as they were in his service. The colonists were not deceived by this transparent ruse, and sent back word that they would release Pocahontas when all the arms and captives were returned and not before. The stern warrior gave himself no further uneasiness about his daughter tranquilly abandoning her to her fate and retaining his prisoners and the muskets. Thus nearly a year passed away. The time need not be supposed to have hung heavily upon the captive Princess' hands for subsequent developments show her to have been engaged in the "very pleasant and diverting pastime of love-making with a worthy young Englishman, John Rolfe by name."

In the spring of 1613 a party of one hundred and sixty colonists well armed and commanded by Sir Thomas Dale, the President of the Colony, sailed up the river Werowocomoco, taking Pocahontas with them. Young Mr. Rolfe also accompanied the expedition. The Powhatans received them with scorn and defiance, threatening them with the fate of Captain Ratliffe. The English landed and burned and destroyed their wigwams. A truce was agreed upon during which two of the brothers of Pocahontas visited her on board the ship. They found her well and moreover contented and happy. They promised to do everything in their power to effect her release, which however she did not seem particularly to desire. Mr. Rolfe and Mr. Sparkes were soon after sent upon an embassy to Powhatan who refused to see them, turning them over to his brother Opechancanough. The whole party now returned to Jamestown without having ransomed a man or redeemed a musket.

Mr. Rolfe now informed Sir Thomas Dale of his attachment to Pocahontas and requested his consent to their marriage. It was cheerfully given as such a connection could not fail to prove an auspicious even in the annals of the colony. Pocahontas communicated her intentions to one of her brothers who promised to convey the intelligence to Powhatan. The old chief was highly pleased with the idea and within ten days forwarded his consent and his blessing to his daughter. Unable to attend the ceremony himself he commissioned his brother Opachiso and two of his sons, "to witness the manner of marriage and to do in that behalf what they were requested for the confirmation thereof as his deputies." Pocahontas had already become a convert to the Christian religion and by the mysterious rite of baptism had exchanged her Indian appellation for the biblical name of Rebecca. She was often called "the first fruit of the Gospel in America," and Sir Thomas Dale once wrote of her, "were it but the gaining of this one soul, I will think my time, toil, and my present stay well spent."

The following account of the nuptial ceremonies we extract from Lossing's "Marriage of Pocahontas:" "It was a day in charming April in 1613 when Rolfe and Pocahontas stood at the marriage altar in the new and pretty chapel at Jamestown. The sun had marched half way up toward the meridian when a goodly company had assembled beneath the temple roof. The pleasant odor of the "pews of cedar" commingled with the fragrance of the wild flowers which decked the festoons of evergreens and sprays that hung over the 'fair, broad windows,' and the commandment tablets above the chancel. Over the pulpit of black-walnut hung garlands of white flowers with waxen leaves and scarlet berries of the holly. The communion table was covered with fair white linen and bore bread from the wheat fields of Jamestown, and wine from its luscious grapes. The font, 'hewn hollow between like a canoe' sparkled with water as on the morning when the gentle Princess uttered her baptismal vows.

"Of all that company assembled in the broad space between the chancel and the pews the bride and groom were the central figures in fact and significance. Pocahontas was dressed in a simple tunic of white muslin from the looms of Dacca Her arms were bare even to the shoulders; and hanging loosely towards her feet was a robe of rich stuff presented by Sir Thomas Dale and fancifully embroidered by herself and her maidens. A gaudy fillet encircled her head and held the plumage of birds and a veil of gauze while her limbs were adorned with the simple jewelry of the native workshops. Rolfe was attired in the gay clothing of an English cavalier of that period and upon his thigh he wore the short sword of a gentleman of distinction in society. He was the personification of manly beauty in form and carriage; she of womanly modesty and lovely simplicity; and as they came and stood before the man of God, history dipped her pen in the indestructible fountain of truth and recorded a prophecy of mighty empires in the New World. Upon the chancel steps where no railing interfered the good Whitaker stood in his sacerdotal robes and with impressive voice pronounced the marriage ritual of the liturgy of the Anglican Church then first planted on the Western Continent. On his right in a richly carved chair of state brought from England sat the Governor with his ever-attendant halberdiers with brazen hekmets at his back.

"All then at Jamestown were at the marriage. The letterers of the time have transmitted to us the names of some of them: Mistress John Rolfe with child doubtless the family of the bridegroom, Mistress Easton and child, Mistress Horton and grandchild with her maid servant, Elizabeth Parsons who on a Christmas Eve before had married Thomas Powell. Among the noted men then present was Sir Thomas Gates, a brave soldier in many wars and as brave an adventurer among the Atlantic perils as any who ever trusted to the ribs of oak of the ships of Old England; Master Sparkes, who had been co-ambassador with Rolfe to the court of Powhatan, stood near the old soldier with young Henry Spilman at his side. There too was the young George Percy, brother of the powerful Duke of Northumberland whose conduct was always as noble as his blood; and near him an earnest spectator of the scene was the elder brother of Pocahontas, but not the destined successor to the throne of his father.

There too was a younger brother of the bride and many youths and maidens from the forest shades; but one noble figure the pride of the Powhatan confederacy the father of the bride, was absent. He had consented to the marriage with willing voice but would not trust himself within the power of the English at Jamestown. He remained in his habitation at Werowocomoco while the "Rose" and the "Totum" were being wedded, but cheerfully commissioned his brother Opachisco to give away his daughter. That Prince performed his duty well and then in careless gravity he sat and listened to the voice of the Apostle and the sweet chanting of the little choristers. The music ceased, the benediction fell, the solemn "Amen" echoed from the rude vaulted roof, and the joyous company left the chapel for the festive hall of the governor. Thus "the peace" was made stronger, and the "Rose" of England lay undisturbed upon the "Hatchet" of the Powhatan and while the father of Pocahontas lived.

Pocahontas dwelt at Jamestown with her husband, readily conforming to English usages and acquiring the language with facility. Three years after her marriage Pocahontas with her infant son Thomas Rolfe accompanied her husband and Sir Thomas Dale to England where they arrived on the 16th day of June 1616. King James was offended with Rolfe for his presumption in marrying the daughter of a King a piece of affection for which his majesty has been styled by a Victorian historian, "an anointed pendant." Captain Smith, whose health had been restored was in London at this time preparing for a voyage to New England, delayed his departure for the purpose of employing his influence to Pocahontas' advantage. He drew up a memorial to "the most virtuous princess, Queen Anne." Thus recommended Pocahontas gained the friendship and esteem of the King and Queen and her acquaintance was eagerly sought by persons of the highest rank. She was known as Lady Rebecca. Her portrait was taken at this time and represented her in the fashionable English costume of the day.

Before his departure Smith visited her at Brentford where she had retired with her husband to escape the smoke and din of the city. History has preserved no further details of the career of the "Nonpareil of Virginia" as Smith was wont to call her until we arrive at the period of her death. Pocahontas and her husband were at Gravesend preparing to return to Virginia, the treasurer and Council of the colony having provided them proper accommodations on board the ship "George" commanded by Captain Argall. That Mr. Rolfe's position might be in some degree assimilated to the rank and quality of his wife, he was made secretary and recorder-general of Virginia. But before embarking Pocahontas fell sick with smallpox and after a brief illness died in her twenty-second year.

The original entry in the register of the parish of Gravesend runs thus: "1616: March 21, Rebecca, wife of Thomas Rolfe, gentleman, a Virginia ladyborn, was buried in the chancel." But as the present church at Gravesend was erected subsequent to 1616, the grave of Pocahontas can no longer be pointed out, though the position of the chancel of the former edifice may be indicted with a sufficient degree of accuracy to reward the pilgrim whom a pious regard for her memory may attract to her resting-place in Kent.

The infant son of Pocahontas, Thomas Rolfe, bereft of a mother's care was left at Plymouth, his father judging it inexpedient to remove him to Virginia. His early education was directed by Sir Lewis Stukey, but as that gentleman was soon after beggered and disgraced by the treacherous part he took in the proceedings against Sir Walter Raleigh, young Rolfe was transferred to the care of his uncle Henry Rolfe of London. He afterwards settled in Virginia where he had inherited a large tract of land which had belonged to Powhatan and where he attained to fortune and eminence. The extreme intricacy of the various branches and family connections render it impossible to present a complete genealogical table however one remarkable man was able to trace back his descent through six generations to the peerless daughter of Powhatan:

1. Pocacahontas married John Rolfe, Jamestown, VA, their only son:

2. Thomas Rolfe, married in Virginia, Miss Polythress, their only daughter:

3. Jane Rolfe married Col. Robert Bolling, and had their only son:

4. Maj. John Bolling, married in Virginia, Mary Keenan and had one son and six daughters:

51. Col. John Bolling married Miss Blair, of Williamsburg.

61. Daughter Bolling married William Bolling, each fifth generation from


52. Daughter Bolling married Col. Fleming.

53. Daughter Bolling married Dr. William Gay.

54. Daughter Bolling married Thomas Eldridge.

55. Daughter Bolling married James Murray.

56. Jane Bolling, was born 1703, died 2 March 1766, daughter of John l William and Mary (Keenan) Bolling married ca. 1724, Col. Richard Randolph, R611645, son of Col. William and Mary (Isham) Randolph, born 1695, Williamsburg, Henrico, VA, married 1748. They had seven children:

57. John Randolph, R6116457, son of Col. Richard and Anne (Meade) Randolph, was born 26 June 1742, Prince George County, VA, married ca. 1762, Frances Bland and had four sons. (only one identified):

61. John Randolph of Roanoke, son of John and Frances (Bland) Randolph, was born 2 June 1763, Prince George County, VA, died 24 May 1833, Philadelphia, PA, married Miss Blair. He distinguished himself from a distant relative (grand-uncle) of the same name by taking the title John Randolph of Roanoke, where he established his home in 1810. He was an American statesman, and claimed descent from Pocahontas, the Indian Princess. In 1789 he was elected to Congress, where he became the acknowledged leader of the administration party. His opposition to the War of 1812 caused his defeat in the following election but he was re-elected to Congress in 1814 where remained until retiring in 1827. He was a defender of State's Rights.

NOTE BY C.R.H.: In a letter by Rev. Noah Haggard, son of Rev. Henry and Dolly (Randolph) Haggard and son-in-law of James and Sarah (Gentry) Randolph, Rev. Noah Haggard noted James Randolph was a near relative of John Randolph of Roanoke. If a "distant relative" was a "grand uncle" then a "near relative" should be a "sibling or cousin." John and Frances (Bland) Randolph were not old enough to be the parents of James and Dolly Randolph, so they couldn't be siblings of John Randolph of Roanoke. Col. Richard Randolph named his children in his will so it is unlikely there would be another son.


David Meade, born 1678, Nansemond County, VA, married ca. 1699, Susannah Everard, born ca. 1680, and had two daughters and five sons; three oldest were sent back to England to be educated:

1. Anne Meade, born ca. 1700, married after 1766, Richard Randolph of Curles.

2. Mary Meade, born 1702, Henrico County, VA, married ca. 1742, Colonel Walker.

3. David Meade, born 1704, Henrico County, VA, married 1746, Miss Waters.

4. Col. R. K. Meade, born 1706, Henrico County, VA, aide to General Washington.

5. Everard Meade, born 1708, Henrico County, VA, aide to General Lincoln.

6. Andrew Meade, born ca. 1710, Henrico County, VA, married ca. 1731, Mary Latham, born ca. 1712, and had:

1. Anne "Nancy" Meade, born 1732, died 13 December 1814, "Curles" Henrico County, VA, married ca. 1752, Richard Randolph, II, of Curles, R6116451, born 1725, Prince George County, VA. (See the Randolphs).

7. John Meade, born 1712, Henrico County, VA, died in his youth.

Unidentified Randolph, born ca. 1720, VA, married ca. 1742, and had at least two children:

1. Dorothy "Dolly" Randolph, born ca. 1745, died 1813, married ca. 1765, Rev. Henry Haggard, H1161 (G361), son of Nathaniel and Elizabeth (Gentry, G36) Haggard.

2. Henry or Thomas Randolph, born ca. 1747.

(Probably several children in between.)

3. James Randolph, born ca. 1758, died 1796, Jefferson County, TN, married Sarah Gentry, G356, daughter of Robert and Judith (Joyner) Gentry, G35.

Dear Cousin Clinton,

Welcome to the Club! I have a number of correspondents who are actively searching for information as to the ancestry of James Randolph, a Revolutionary War ancestor. Of course your interest is in Dolly Randolph, but if she was the sister of James Randolph it would be the same thing.

I have had a field day checking my files on the Randolph line. I have so many notes, and so little actual information! I have the same information you gave (the DAR records) on the family of James Randolph, but I did not have anything about Rev. Henry and Dolly (Randolph) Haggard.

I am a descendant of Susannah Randolph and Silas Witt, and although I have been searching for years for the ancestry of James Randolph, I have never made any effort to trace any of the other lines descended from James Randolph. I am sorry to say that I have nothing on the Noah Haggard and Henry Haggard lines, except the following:


October 6, 1797, Henry Haggard and Lucy Randolph.

January 28, 1807, Noah Haggard and Sallie Randolph. (I assume Sallie to be the same as Sarah.)

Also the following is a quotation from a letter from a professional researcher to one of my correspondents: "There were two Henry Haggards in the Revolutionary War, who were cousins and both were born in Albemarle County, VA, and their records get mixed. One Henry Haggard (son of Gray Haggard) was born in 1759 and died in 1838, Rockcastle County, KY. He went to Washington County, VA probably the area which was close to Surray County, NC, where the Gentry family stopped on the way to Tennessee then to Sullivan County and on to Hawkins County, TN. The other Henry Haggard (son of Nathaniel Haggard) was born in 1745 and settled in Jefferson County, TN, later migrating to Bibb County, AL, where he was in the 1840 Census of Revolutionary War veterans.

I have my "Witt" lineage unbroken back to the original emigrant, a French Hugenot, Guillaume Witt who settled in Manakintowne, VA, in 1699, and I am now in the process of printing a little volume on this line with a complete genealogy of the Arkansas branch of the Witt family.

In our family there has always been a tradition that we are descended from Pocahontas and John Rolfe through Susannah (Randolph) Witt. This tradition is encountered in various widely scattered branches of the family, including descendants of Henry and Susannah (Moyers) Randolph. As at least one branch of the Turkey Island Randolph family is descended from Pocahontas, I have done quite a bit of research on this family, as have others with whom I have correspondence. But so far we have been unable to learn the parentage of James Randolph. We do not know the date of his birth, but assume it to have been around 1750. I did not know about his sister Dolly (Randolph) Haggard.

According to a number of sources James Randolph, Robert Gentry, Rev. Henry Haggard, and Joseph Witt among others settled in what was later Jefferson County, TN, in 1792, and all more or less settled in the same neighborhood on or near the French Broad. It appears also that they all moved from Albemarle County, VA. Also a Thomas Randolph settled in the same area at about the same time. I have assumed no basis for the assumption other than coincidence that James and Thomas were probably brothers.

The Librarian of the College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, VA, made the following statement in a letter to me: ". . . as I recall there is some problem connected with the descendants of Richard Randolph, JR., and his wife Anne Meade. According to my notes they had thirteen children, although I can not give you their names . . ." All other sources which I have checked list only ten children none of which are James, Dolly, or Thomas!

William and Isham Randolph appear in Jefferson County, TN, in 1780-84 and we find Isham and Peyton Randolph on the tax lists of Greene County, TN, in 1805. These are all Turkey Island Randolph family names.

Now to another trail! The will of Henry Randolpg was probated in 1775 (or 1778) in Albemarle County, VA, Book B(365), Page 36. The will mentions his wife Mary, and two youngest daughters Elizabeth and Susannah, also sons Thomas and John. There are other children unnamed. (This line was chosen by Betty Harrell.)

In Albemarle County, VA, Deed Book 2, Page 76, is found a deed dated November 10, 1758, from John Leake of St. Ann's Parish, Albemarle County, VA, to Richard Randolph of Henrico County, in consideration of 15 pounds sterling (current money) for 123 acres on Green Creek, Albemarle County, adjoining Christopher Armstrong. (Could this have been Richard Randolpg Jr. who married Anne Meade?)

In Albemarle County, VA, Deed Book 6, Page 463, is found a deed dated October 1775, from Robert Logan of Albemarle County, VA, and Betheir his wife, to Thomas Randolph of the same county, for 20 pounds sterling, 50 acres on head of Ivy Creek, Albemarle County, adjoining Charles Whitlock and Robert Gentry, new line agreeable to patent granted said Logan 17 July 1763. (Is this Thomas Randolph the same one who settled in Jefferson County, TN, in 1792?)

Although I have never found such a reference, two of my correspondents have stated that our James Randolph sometimes referred to himself as "James Randolph of Roanoke". This would indicate a connection with "John Randolph of Roanoke", who was a descendant of Richard and Anne (Meade) Randolph Jr.

I have photocopies of that part of "The Randolphs of Virginia" by Robert Isham Randolph showing the descendants of Richard Randolph II of Curles. This lists him as having ten children, none of them being a James, Thomas or Dolly. Also I have a photocopy of a hand drawn chart of the family of William Randolph of Turkey Island and his wife Mary Isham. This also lists the same ten children of Richard Randolph Jr. as are shown by Robert Isham Randolph's work.

However, on this chart, I find the following notation as to the children of Richard Randolph II of Curles: "Names and exact dates of these children were taken from a pincushion made by their mother Anne (Meade) Randolph of heavy white satin, each name spelled with small brass pins, owned in 1928 by Jane Ruffin. Richard Randolph married Anne Meade about 1751 or 1752. He was born in 1721 (some sources give even an earlier date for his birth), so that he was thirty years old, or older, at the time of his marriage to Anne Meade. In

making the pincushion, Anne (Meade) Randolph was, of course listing only her own children. This does not necessarily mean that there could not have been other children by Richard and a former wife! Of course, I have found no other sources which mention a prior marriage or name other children, but it is possible that family genealogists have taken Anne (Meade) Randolph's pincushion as the source and assumed that the ten children were all of Richard's family. This is, of course, pure speculation on my part.

I am sure that I now have you thoroughly confused, having mixed fact with theory sufficiently, but I am trying to suggest every lead which might lead to the discovery of evidence of James Randolph's ancestry. If you come up with anything, please let me know and I as well as several others will be eternally grateful. If I come into possession of any new information which will be helpful to you, I will certainly let you know. Happy hunting!

He was graduated from the United States Military Academy in 1829, saw service in the Mexican War, and was breveted Colonel in 1847. In 1861 Lee was offered command of the Union Army, but refused, and although opposed to slavery and secession, resigned his United States commission when Virginia seceded. He was made commander of the Virginia troops and in May 1862 replaced Gen. J. E. Johnston in the command of the army of Northern Virginia. In the campaign that ensued General Lee aided by "Stonewall" Jackson, madea vigorous assault on McClellen's army and forced it back from Richmond. In August, Lee defeated the Union Army in the Second Battle of Bull Run, and invaded Maryland; he withdrew after the drawn battle of Antietam. In December 1862, he inflicted a severe defeat on the Union Army at Fredericksburg. Another northern advance was halted in May 1863, when Lee's brilliant strategy resulted in the Confederate victory at Chancellorsville. In June he invaded Pennsylvania, and though victorious in the first day at Gettysburg (July 1, 1863), met with disasterous repulse two days later, and retreated. On the defensive through 1864, Lee parried every Northern thrust, but on April 2, 1865 he was dislodged from his entrenchments by superior forces, compelled to retreat from Petersburg, and eventually to surrender his army to General Grant on April 9, 1865.
