Who were the parents of Winney Randolph?

+1 vote

What is the proof that Winney was daughter of Jane Bolling Randolph? Winney is not included in Dan Molenus's descendants of Pocahontas chart that seems to be the go-to place although it's not sourced. I think this generation may be beyond the accepted published work of Pocahontas's descendants.

Winnie's maiden name and her parents are unknown. According to an article by a man named Ira Chitwood, (date and publication unknown)  she only appears to exist on a deed from Bedford County, VA in 1773 signed by Richard and Winnie Chitwood.   Deed book abstracts available at Family History Centers.  Richard and wife Winnie are also mentioned in an account of the Chitwoods in the William and Mary Quarterly, 1938 “Genealogical Notes and Contributions.” The William and Mary Quarterly, vol. 18, no. 4, 1938, pp. 506–516. JSTOR, www.jstor.org/stable/1922983. Accessed 26 Feb. 2020.

I have detached her parents, and protected her as an adjunct of the Native Americans Project. I also incorporated your research notes, Kathie, into the profile. Thanks again.

The documented children of Jane Bolling and Richard Randolph (per Dorman, Adventurers, Vol. III, pp. 28-29) were:  

Richard, Mary, Jane, Brett, Ryland, son died in infancy, daughter died in infancy, John, and Elizabeth.

Richard (the father) left a will which names all his children; you can see a transcript on JSTOR at: “The Ancestors and Descendants of John Rolfe with Notices of Some Connected Families. Bolling-Randolph.” The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, vol. 22, no. 4, 1914, pp. 441–446. JSTOR, www.jstor.org/stable/4243394. Accessed 26 Feb. 2020.
