Many trees on ancestry and other places will list Abraham Randolph's full name as John Abraham Randolph. This researcher has not located a single document with his first name as John. He received a land deed from his father under name of Abraham, first census he is Abraham, fought in Revolutionary War as Abraham and wife received a pension from her husband, Abraham Randolph.
At this time his mother is unknown. There are online trees available with various mother's listed; however, there isn't any documentation to back any of these women as the mother of Abraham Randolph or as the wife of James Randolph.
