Randolph County ILGenWeb
Named after: Edmund Randolph
County seat: Chester
|Randolph County was
organized in 1795 out of a part of St. Clair County. It was named in
honor of Edmund Randolph, Governor of Virginia. The Northwest
Territory was captured from the British near the end of the
Revolutionary War by the army of Virginia. Illinois then became, for a
brief time, Illinois County, Virginia. Edmund Randolph was Governor of
Virginia at the time Virginia ceded the Northwest Territory to the
United States. The county's boundaries were last changed in 1827, when
land was taken to form Perry County.
County is surrounded by the counties of Jackson,
Clair and Washington.
