Bio and Links

I am a direct descendant of John Thomas Randolph 1704-1735. Most of my information is from "The Randolph's of Prince William County, Virginia" compiled by Blanche Randolph, and her assistants Ora Lee Uzzel-Sharp & Verna Kirby-Wilkerson.
Lines are Randolph/Bland/Cohran/Kirby/Oates/Osborne/Oglesby/Uzzel.


My grandmother was Lena Mae "Choran". Born 08 Dec 1899 in Sevier County, Arkansas and died during childbirth on 25 Apr 1934 in McCurtain County, Oklahoma.

Her father was, John Evans Cohran. He was born in Jan of 1851 in Pauldings County, Georgia. He died about 1925 Choctaw County, Oklahoma. His name is spelled "Cochran" on the 1870 census, "Cohoron" on the 1880 census, "Coin" on the 1900 census. And on marriage records his name was spelled, "Corn" and "Chron". The same is true for every family photo.

I spent ten years trying to connect to the "Cohran Family" of Pauldings County, Georgia. It was only this year, when a cousin from my gr-grandfather's first marriage contacted me, did we successfully put the pieces of this puzzle together. Oh and she is a "Corron"! We are doing DNA testing for this family at our expense. We have only gone back to John A Cohran born abt 1791 in Georgia and he was married to Nancy Hood.


The Adams line is connected to many of the Blairs, Caudills and Whitakers who traveled the same migration path and who married into each others families.

From Surrey & Wilkes Counties North Carolina, to Perry, Harlan, Letcher & Bell, Counties Kentucky to Wise & Scott Counties, Virginia, to Washington D.C. & Kingsport Tennessee.

I uploaded some of the photos you requested. Added Vera B. Palmer to Findagrave since she was buried in the same plot as John W. and her husband Irby. I will be happy to transfer management if this is one of your relatives.

William and Otis Worthan were in the same plot as Ms. Bertha. I will send to you if you wish.

Please consider these pictures your property.

RE: Adams Genealogy
Can't believe I didn't see your question until now! So sorry!

Anyway, a Squire Adams (b. abt 1823--1826) I have
in my tree was married to a Nancy Snowden, b. abt 1827 in Estill county, KY. I do not know the name of my Squire's father or mother.

They had several children with names of John, Mary, Polly, Francis Marion, and Green. These names are used over and over within this family making it very difficult to separate families.

You are very welcome. They could have problems about something very little or they might have grown apart. My Mom was born in Oklahoma but moved her early. I enjoyed your pictures. Maybe, between us will have more pieces to the family puzzle.

You are a blood kin to me regardless of what went wrong 100 years ago. Your cousin, Barbara

Not the same person. The BookGoddess got banned from Find A Grave and I took over all of her memorials. Yes, I will make the transfer for your aunt.
