The purpose of this site is to make free genealogy and history available to Randolph County researchers.
I am Tam Inman and I will be your host. My main focus is to add information to help others in researching their family history. The "Genealogy Family" has a strong bond and are the most helpful people I have ever known. Hopefully this site will give back to some of the many, many people that have given to me over the past ten years. Genealogy is truly my passion.
If you find something useful on this site, please let me know. There's nothing better than knowing you made a difference in someones family research :)
If you have family history to donate, or want to make a suggestion, please e-mail me
The first white settlers in what became Randolph County were Thomas W. and Anne Parker and their family, Quakers from Carolina, who arrived in 1814. The Indiana General Assembly authorized the formation of Randolph County in 1818, naming it for the North Carolina, home of many of the area’s Quaker settlers. The county’s government was organized in August 1818 in the cabin of Benjamin Cox, a prominent Quaker who was a native of Randolph County, North Carolina. Five early settlers donated land for a county seat in 1818. Winchester, almost certainly named for Winchester, Virginia, was platted upon the site the same year and has remained the county seat for nearly two centuries. The Indiana General Assembly authorized the formation of Randolph County from Wayne County in January 1818 to take effect in August 1818.
Winchester is the County Seat. First settled in 1819, by 1849 it contained 151 houses, of which 11 were brick, with a population of about 750.
Randolph County is divided into 11 Civil Townships as follows: Franklin, Green, Greensfork, Jackson, Monroe, Stoney Creek, Union, Ward, Washington, Wayne, and White River; Nettle Creek and West River Townships were combined to form Union Township.
Did you know that Delaware County was created 26 January 1827 from Randolph County.
