Fitzrandolph Family Genealogy Forum
My gggrandfather, Joseph M. (Miller) (Fitz) Randolph was born January 13, 1830, to Thomas Fitz Randolph (originally of Uniontown, Fayette Co., Pennsylvania) and Cynthia Ann Low (Lowe) Randolph, perhaps in Wheeling, West Virginia. The family later lived in Muskingum Co., Ohio, and Holmes Co., Ohio. According to a marriage record in Davenport, Scott Co., Iowa, Joseph married Carrie Reamer (my gggrandmother, Caroline Remer) on February 8, 1864. At the 1870 census, they were living in Davenport with two children, Ellsworth Randolph (my great-grandfather, Elmer Ellsworth Randolph), age 7, and Pauline Randolph, age 1. Two additional children, John L. Randolph and Lulu Jane Randolph, were born in 1870 and 1872, respectively. Caroline and Joseph divorced in 1874 in Scott County. I have been unable to locate Joseph M. Randolph or Elmer Ellsworth Randolph on the 1880 census, although Caroline and her other three children are accounted for. According to an online database, Joseph died on March 28, 1889, but I have no source information or other details.
Does anyone know what became of Joseph after his divorce in 1874? I would love to hear from anyone with any information concerning this family. Thank you.
