However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with James:

Randolph-382 and Randall-1572 do not represent the same person because: Comparing the info in biography and sources section, it is specified that James Randolph (Randolph-382) is NOT related to the Randolph family that married into Thomas Jefferson's family (which are also the Randolphs who descended from Pocahontas, which Randall-1572 identifies with). The similarity/confusion probably lies with attributing Margaret Smalley as the wife of both. Randolph-382's info states that this is speculation and has no supporting documentation.

Richard has never been proven as his middle name. I don't believe he had a middle name.

Randolph-194 and Randall-1572 appear to represent the same person because: Same son. Differences in place to be noted in the biography until a source can be added.
