Robert C. Randolph was the son of Eliza Page (Burwell) Randolph, who married Thomas H. Randolph, a Civil War veteran who was 27 in 1870; their son Robert C. was 30 in the Clarke County, Virginia census for 1900, and listed as a physician. Robert married Isabella Randolph sometime around 1896. Robert C. Randolph was thus the grandson of Lucy M. and Dr. Robert Carter Randolph (1807-1887), also a physician; Randolph senior appears in censuses for Clarke County, Virginia as a farmer, physician, and owner at one point of 31 slaves, and the father of nine children, one of whom, Thomas H., was 7 in 1850. The Randolphs were closely connected with the Burwell family of Virginia.
