Thanks for visiting.


BRIEF HISTORY

Randolph County was formed in 1818. There is a dispute as to the origin of the name. Some say that the County was named for Randolph County, North Carolina where the areas first settlers came from. That county was named for Peyton Randolph, the first President of the Continental Congress under the Articles of Confederation.
     Another version is that the County was named for President Thomas Jefferson's first cousin, Thomas Randolph, who was Attorney General for the Indiana Territory, and who was killed in the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811. Randolph was serving as an Acting Aide-de-Camp in the General Staff.
     The other namesake might be Gov. Edmund Randolph of Virginia, who signed the law transferring the Northwest Territory from Virginia to the United States, allowing for the formation of the Indiana Territory. Edmund was the nephew of Peyton Randolph, and the executor of his estate.
     All of the above Randolphs were related, so that one can safely conclude that the County was named for this important, early colonial family.
