Notes

  • Randolph was commonly called Randel.  Family sources name him JamesRandoloph Jenkins.  In his will he provided for a home to be providedfor 5 years after his death to a current resident on a part of hisproperty.  The name in a typewritten transcript of the original willis spelled as John Burce.  This is commonly thought to be John Burel.

    One of Randel's daughters married John and Patience Burel's oldest sonLouis.  There are strong ties between the Jenkins and Burel/Burrellfamillies and intermarriages at several levels. Members of the twofamilies moved from South Carolina to Georgia and Mississippi togetherand others from there to Arkansas County, Arkansas.

    Randel was in Union District, South Carolina before the first censusof the united States in 1790.
