    Notes 
    • Jack Randall was sold in slavery from Virginia to the Conner Plantation North of Lexington, Mississii, Holmes County. A family tradition asserts that the original Randles were slaves in England. The first black Randalls to aear in Holmes county, according to census data, was Jack and Delsey. The Randall name has changed over the years mainly because many descendants simply weren't aware of how to spell the surname. Enumerators from various census years spelled it, Randal, Randall, Randle and Randel. More than likely, there are many Randall relatives in existence today with different spellings.

      It's believed that Willis, the earliest of the children, was almost left behind as the purchasers had no value for small children. However, Jack was able to convince the owners to purchase his youngest son Willis as well. More than likely, many of his older children were quite possibly left behind. The census shows a 10 year difference between Willis and his siblings. There are many unaccounted children.

      On January 13, 1877, James Randall purchased land from William B. Helm. Later the land was divided up among many of his brothers. They owned their own farms and earned a living that way for decades.

      There were so many Randalls in the area a portion of their land is now known as Randall Town. Some family still lives in and near the area.
