A FLY IN THE OINTMENT

This is from the Va. Gene.Soc./vol VI{6}; #2 /April 1968

I don't know if he was trying to insert confusion into his ancestry but this from the 'Hon.John Randolph{1773-1833} of Roanoke, Va. is quoted in the Baptist Newspaper, "the Religious Herald"; Mar.27,1829. Also from The Southern Patriot", and written by him.

Pocahontas,{whose true name was Matouca; his spelling} was baptized by the name of Rebecca, and married John Rolfe, Esq., and left an only son, Thomas,whose only daughter married Robert Bolling of Bolling Hall,West Riding of York,who left a son,John Bolling,one of whose daughters married Richard Randolph of Curles,whose youngest son,John Randolph of Roanoke married Frances Bland. Your humble servant is one of the only surviving issue of that marriage, sixth in descent from Pocahontas.

Note: in saying that he was 'one' of the only surviving Issue of that marriage, sounds like John Randolph{son of Richard} and Frances Bland were his parents and he had siblings.

do what you can with it. Elton
