Re: Redman/Warrick of Loudoun Co., VA

According to Sutton's "History of Shelby County Ohio" in regard to the settlement in, Van Buren Twp- among the "Randolph" freemen from VA were father and son: {.p.233}
Moses Redman died 1871 age 88
A. N. Redman born Virginia 1811-married 1861 to wife born Virginia 1821
======================================
Hello Paul,
The above posting by PF caught my interest as I research Shelby County, OH...the 'Randolph freeman'.. and Van Buren Twp.

While I am NOT a researcher of the REDMAN and/or WARRICK surnames as such these surnames are connected to my family research through marriage and other collateral relationships.

I believe the individuals mentioned above are part of the 381 slaves freed by "John Randolph of Roanoke" in his Will of 1833. The Will was contested by the Randolph family and not settled until 1846 and the 381 John Randolph slaves were manumitted.

The former slaves were brought to Ohio and settled in the Miami Valley of Ohio namely Miami and Shelby Counties. Their registration, listing all 381 people as FPOC in Ohio is recorded in the Miami County, Ohio Probate Court in Troy, Ohio.

The registration listing reflects their number as registered in the Freedom Papers filed in Charlotte County, VA. Along with the number are a given name, physical description, age when freed and some familial connections.

I've taken the 1846 freedom register and tried to match up the names and family connections in the 1850 and later Federal Census records for Shelby and Miami counties. REDMAN seems to be one of the surnames used by the former Randolph slaves, as a note very few of the former slaves retained the surname RANDOLPH.

Slave # 594 named Austin born ca 1811 is the closest match to A.N. REDMAN who is found first in the 1850 Census in Washington Twp., Miami Co. and 1860 Census in Dinsmore Twp., Shelby Co. and finally 1870 in Van Buren Twp., Shelby Co.

In 1850 the woman listed as his wife (?) is Hannah, 1860 listed as Anna and 1870 Harriett. I have a record for Austin & Hannah "Anna" Bishop being married on 10 May 1853 in Shelby County, OH. As for the 1861 marriage mentioned above it is possible that Hannah/Anna may have died following the 1860 Census and this is a recording of the 1861 marriage to Harriett.

The registration list also shows that the # 594 Austin's father was # 590 and his name was John, not Moses. There is a Moses REDMAN born ca 1784 in VA found on the 1850 Census for Van Buren Twp., Shelby Co. with a wife, Rebecca born ca 1801 in VA. Rebecca is not likely to be the mother of Austin (A.N.) since there is only a 10 year age difference.

There is more than likely some connection to Moses and Austin ….. Austin names a son Moses, who is born to Anna in 1857.

Let me stop my rambling here, but I need to say my experience with those History of xyz County books written during the 1880’s while very important tend to not be very accurate in their recordings of AA relationships.

This example gives the impression of a Randolph freeman settlement in Van Buren Twp., Shelby Co., OH. The fact is there was an AA settlement in that area named Rumley 10-15 years before the former Randolph slaves arrived.

A FYI, my mother, grandmother and great-grandmother were all born in this area of Shelby Co. and they have ancestors who were in this area prior to 1815. I was born in Miami Co.
