From Dave Smith' Family by Dave Smith on GenCircles.com


"John settled on the Rappahannock River when he first came to Virginia from Kent Co., England in 1650. He was a accompanied to Virginia by his two sons and his half-brothers, Ralph Rowzee and Edward Rowzee. It is assumed by all records that John's first wife (the mother of Thomas and Nicholas) was deceased before they came from England. John was slain by the Indians while defending the fort at Port Royal. The records of Richmond Co. states that Col. John Catlett, in his will, directed his estate in England be devoted to the education of his children in that country.


The Virginia Land Books in Richmond: ( Book II 224, and V I 12)- on 5/23/1650, John Catlett and Ralph Rowzie were granted 400 acres on south side of Rappahannock River. Four headrights, among them Nicholas Catlett. ( Book II, 66 ) - John Catlett, 450 acres called "Green Hill" on the south side of the Rappahannock, between the Golden Vale and Cedar Creek. This was his home place and long continued in his family. On 9/10/1660, grant of 832 acres in Essex Co. Of this Francis Taliaferro and his wife, Elizabeth Catlett, deeded 416 acres to Augustine Smith, of Gloucester Co., March 11, 1701. (Book V, 477)- August, 1663, John Catlett, Gent., 500 acres in Sittingbourne Parish, Rappahannock, and in 1666, 2000 acres on the north side of Rappahannock, 45 headrights, and again, same year and locality 500 acres additional. Sept., 1667 John Catlett, 1850 acres, in Rappanannock Co.


As shown by various records, Col. John was a man of great i mportance, if not of distinction.He was Presiding Justice, Burgess, Sheriff, Colonel of Militia and of the Vestry. He was one of three commissioners to settle the boundry line between Virginia and Maryland, with Edmund Scarborough and Richard Lawrence, the last a distinguished Oxford graduate. He seems to have been an expert surveyor, and the records of Maryland show much work done by him in that state.


The first party to explore and reach the summit of the Blue Ridge Mountains was led by Colonel John Catlett, of Rappahannock County, as gleaned from 'An Account of Virginia', communicated to the Royal Society in 1676 by Mr. Thomas Glover, an ingenious chirugion that hath lived some years in that country. [Blackwell's Reprint, Oxf ord, 1904]. Mr. Glover's account states further that 'There was a Colonel Catlett that was a good Mathmetician, who with some other gentlemen took a Journey to make some further discoveries of the Country to the Westwards and arriving at the foot of the Mountains early in the morning they left their horses and endeavored to gain the tops of the mountains which they accomplished about four o'clock in the afternoon, and then looking further forward they discovered other mountains, whereof they took the altitude and judged them inaccessible; which discouraged them from any further attempts, their design being chiefly to discover whether there were any rivers that ran into the South-Ocean...etc.' Accompanied John Lederer on his third exploration of the country west of the Blue Ridge Mountains."

Therefore it is considered by the Court that the Plaintif recover agnt (against) the Deft the sum of One Hundred and Sixty pounds Current Money. And it is Ordered that the Sheriff make Sale of the Attached effects as the Law directs and pay and Satisfy this Judgment and Costs to the said Plaintif and return the overplus if any to the Defendant But this Judgment is to be discharged by the Payment of Five pounds four Shillings and two pence half penny with Interest from 25th day of December 1786 Sixteen pounds with Interest from 25th of December 1787 and Sixteen pounds with Interest from the 25th of December 1788 and the Costs and the Defendant in Mercy ___ (illeg-an abbreviation-might be in mercy ordered). (Mary was taxed in Dinwiddie Co in 1784 for slaves Casey and Judy among others. It appears she was renting land- a three year lease for 1786-1788 in Meherrin Parish owned by Griffin RANDLE, minor, for whom James RANDLE was guardian. She became delinquent in rent payments so James filed and was granted an attachment against the two slaves. When she tried to take the slaves off of the property, James filed suit. The two slaves and the Bay horse might have been sold.


James was the guardian of Griffin RANDLE, son of Barnett RANDLE until Absolum Bennett was appointed in his stead 27 Sept 1790. Barnett had bought land in Montgomery County, NC along with his brothers, etc, but died before he could make the move. His sister Ann, and husband Richard Tillman moved in 1763. Brothers Maj. John and Colby had moved before his death abt. 1776-1778. James was probably a cousin of Barnett. He administered Barnett RANDLE's estate 1780-1781.


27 Sep 1790, Brunswick County Order Book 15, James is exempted from paying levies for negro wench Tempy. (She was not listed in his will or estate papers.)


1795 A James RANDLE is shown as a Surveyor for Brunswick County, VA. Another James RANDALL was a surveyor 1754-1755 ********* Could this be our James' father????

James and Roseanna came from Brunswick County, Virginia and settled in Hancock County, Georgia about ten miles from Sparta.


A letter from Richard Henning Randle, dated December 1901, says that it is thought by many that the original name was Randolph, and that John Randolph, of Roanoak, Virginia, was one of the family. It is said that the name was, for some cause by some member of the family, spelled "Randel" and then "Randle", as by James Randle, of Hancock County, Georgia. It is probable that the name through all the variations of spelling, as Randle, Randol, Randall, Randal, Randell is originally the same.


1796 is the last year that James paid personal property tax in Brunswick Co, VA. In 1794 and 1795, but not 1796, he also paid tax for one other male above the age of 16. By 1796 he was paying taxes for only 3 slaves above the age of 12, after paying for 8 in 1795. He sold all three tracts of his land between 1795 and 1796 tax years, so he probably moved to GA between the fall harvest of 1795 and the spring planting of 1796, leaving behind 3 slaves which he came back for after the end of the 1795-1796 tax year.


James and Roseanna were believed to be members of Fountain Creek Baptist Church before they moved to Georgia. In Greensville County, VA it was organized in 1787. Its name is derived from Fountain Creek which is nearby. The church was a member of the Kehukee Association until 1791 when it joined with others to form the Portsmouth Association. The first place of worship was a one-room frame structure which had a gallery for slaves who, incidently, were accepted as members. Elder William Garner was the first pastor, serving until 1828. A church record for Powelton Baptist Church, Hancock County, GA, dated 31 March 1798, shows that James was received as a member, signed by W. Avery and W. M. Garner, Pastor and Clerk of a church in Greensville Co, VA {NOTE- Robert Cummings says that a James and John Randle were listed as a "constitutional Member of the Powelton Baptist Church" in Hancock Co on 1 Ju.y 1786"}

Notes


In 1796 Brumfield Parish of Culpeper County was organized into Madison County. "John Smoot, son of George and Anne (Beale) Smoot, was born about 1765 in St. Mary's County, Maryland. He married first according to tradition Elizabeth Jenifer, the union occurring about 1791, and then settled in the southern portion of Culpeper County, Virginia.


The records of St. Mark's Parish, Culpeper County, show the marriage of a John Smoot and Anne Canady in 1798. It is known that his wife Elizabeth died early, and in asmuch as the Canadys were his neighbors, it is probable that this marriage can be credited to him. If so, the union was of short duration. It is known, however, that he married Lucy Buckner, born March 3, 1786, daughter of George and Margaret (Stanley) Thornton, of Orange (now Greene) County, Virginia. The bond was secured in Orange County on June 9, 1806, stating that the prospective bride was the daughter of George Thornton. William Buckner and Charles Thornton were the witnesses, with the latter as bondsman. The ceremony by the Rev. Isham Tatum, was reported in Madison County as occurring on June 12, 1806.


On November 13, 1835, John Smoot and Lucy his wife conveyed land lying on the south side of Haphazard Mill Road to Landon Bates, and on the same day they deeded 180 acres of land to Daniel Jenifer Smoot for a consideration of $600. About this time he migrated to Christian County, Kentucky, taking his younger children with him. He died July 15, 1842, and was buried on his farm about 12 miles from Hopkinsville.
The census record of Madison County for 1830 shows that there were at least four sons and two daughters in his household--one son born between 1804-1810; two sons born between 1810-1820; two daughters born 1810-1820; and a son born 1825-1830. The following therefore is not a complete list of the children.
Children of John and Lucy (Thornton) Smoot
2. George Thornton Smoot, born 1809. Issues: Robert; James; George; etc.
3. John B. Smoot, born 1811.
4. Mary Elizabeth Smoot, born Apr. 4, 1816, married Apr. 12, 1845, Joseph Pettus Graves, born about 1803, in Louisa Co., Va. Among their children was John Otho Graves, born Jan. 17, 1846, died June 11, 1902, married Margaret Anna Cummins, born Mar. 8, 1850, died Dec. 6, 1932.
5. William G. Smoot married Susan C. Bennett. q.v."
