Randolph Lovett Land was born in 1853 in the vicinity of Princess Anne County, Virginia. Although his parents given first names are unknown, we know from the information recorded on Randolph's death certificate that his mother's maiden name was Lovett. So, Randolph was obviously named in recognition of his mother's family.
As a young man, Randolph migrated to the state of Texas where he found his bride, Emily Josephine Henderson. He and Josephine, as she was known, were wed in Williamson County, Texas on December 2, 1876.
