"DESCENDANTS OF HENRY RANDOLPH There were two emigrants, William Randolph
and his uncle Henry. Mr. W. G. Stanard has an interesting note in the Richmond
Critic for Sept. 3, 1888, regarding the descendants of the latter. Rev. Henry
Isham Longden, Shangton Rectory, Leicester, England, states that in the
visitation it appears that Henry was the uncle of William, and was baptized
November 27, 1623.(1) Henry Randolph was clerk of Henrico county from about 1656
and clerk of the House of Burgesses from about 1660 to his death in 1673. The
following paper is in the handwriting of John Randolph, of Roanoke, copied
evidently from some family Bible. The notes on the margin and the pedigree at
the end were perhaps added by Mr. Randoph himself: 1 Henry & Eliz Randolph
mar: by Mr Edw: ffolliott(1) minister ye 12th of Oct 1652 obijt Eliz: 12 oct
1660. 2 Henry, son of Hen: & Eliz: born at Appamatok 2 Sept, 1654, being
Satterday, [died infant 1654] baptized by Mr. Robt Lesley being Sunday Sponsrs
Geo: & Mary Worsham. Robt & Mary West–dyed ye 8 8ber being Monday–buried
ye 10th." There were Worthams in Middlesex Co., VA but no Worshams.
The Worshams of Henderson Co., KY believed they were descended from the
Middlesex Co., VA Worshams. Upon checking the Middlesex Co., VA records, Dorothy
Tuttle determined they were Worthams. . The earliest
Wortham found in the Middlesex Co., VA records was John Wortham born abt 1640 married
Jane & he died bef 1 Aug 1692 leaving a will. Information on him and his
children were listed in the Christ Church, Middlesex Co., VA records and in a
book, "A Place in Time, Middlesex County, Virginia 1650-1750" by Darrett B. and Anita H. Rutman (New York: W. W. Norton & Company)

Brigade, Jackson’s Division, Second Corps, A. N. VA”, New York, The Neale
Publishing Company, 1912. He was a member of the 21st Virginia which was a part
of the Stonewall Brigade. In the preface he wrote August 1912:
“In writing my experience and what I saw during the war as one
of Jackson's "foot cavalry," it is not my intention to make a
comparison of commands, but simply to state what was seen and experienced by me.
When other commands are mentioned, it is done to give their position so that the
reader may the better understand the situation; and when I have a word of praise
for them, it is because they came under my eye. It is needless to make
comparisons between different commands of the Army of Northern Virginia. The
world never saw such courage, devotion, and patriotism as was displayed by the
men of that army, and every man in it who did his duty was a hero.

On page 145 John wrote, “Old F Company had reached low water mark! After
Second Manassas there were only three men to answer roll call,--Malcolm L.
Hudgins, Reuben J. Jordan, and John H. Worsham. As we had no officer, we were
ordered to report to Capt. Page of Company D, and when we did so, he called us
young gentlemen, and told us we might march and camp anywhere we chose in the
regiment, reporting to him once daily, and in the event of a fight, reporting at
once; and ended by saying we might call the roll as often as we chose!”
The following are the names of the members of F Company who left for
Staunton, June 22, 1863 (page 162, we only listed officers): Captain, William A.
Pegram; Second Lieut., Reuben J. Jordan; Jr. Second Lieut., Malcolm L. Hudgins.
First Sergeant, William S. Archer; Second Sergeant, John H. Worsham; Third
Sergeant, J. Porter Wren; Fourth Sergeant, T. Walker; First Corporal, E.
Gouldman; Second Corporal, W. C. Tiney; Third Corporal, George J. Floyd; Fourth
Corporal, Henry F. Munt…”
John wrote about his service on page 316: “Worsham, John H., enlisted April
21, 1861; promoted second sergeant April, 1863; first sergeant Dec. 1863;
adjutant of 21st Va. Regt., Sept. 12, 1864; wounded at Winchester Sept. 19,
1864; permanently disabled. Worsham, Thomas R., enlisted April 21, 1861;
John provided a link to his father, Richard and his mother Clarke Goddin,
when he wrote on page 220:
“Brig. Gen. Stewart, captured; Brig. Gen. Walker
and Col. W. A. Witcher, who commanded the Second Brigade, were wounded. F
Company lost W. B. Edmunds and P. S. Richeson, wounded; and W. C. Seay died a
few hours after being wounded. While we were engaged in these battles, Sheridan
with his cavalry left Grant's army May 9, 1864, on a raid to cut Lee's
communications, and capture Richmond! On the morning of the 12th, he arrived at
Brook schoolhouse, about three and a quarter miles from Richmond on the Brook
turnpike. At that time my grandmother, the widow of Capt. John Goddin, lived on
the west side of that road two and a quarter miles from Richmond, her house
fronting south. In front of it, several hundred yards off, was a fort, situated
on the turnpike at Laburnam. On the Hermitage road was a similar fort, and they
were connected by breastworks. On the morning of the 12th grandmother got up
early to do the churning, preferring to do it herself, taking her position on
the front porch. When the butter "had come," she went to the well at
the side of the house to cool the churn dasher, and get some cold water to take
the butter up. At the same moment a squad of Yankee cavalry came around the
other side of the house, and, perceiving the churn, helped themselves to
buttermilk, and when the old lady came back she found the Yankees on the porch,
one with the churn to his lips, drinking! It made the old lady hot, and she
whacked him as hard as she could with the dasher, and said some very plain words
to the party. They ran off in a good humor, saying they would see if our
breastworks were manned. Going down a dividing fence until they reached the
Laburnam fence, they fired a few shots and at once discovered the breastworks
were manned! Running back to the house they went to the barnyard, took
possession of a mule and cart, filled the cart with corn, and drove off towards
the main body, which was at Brook schoolhouse. All at grandmother's home
lamented the loss of the fine mule and cart, but about two hours after the mule
came back with the empty cart!
That party of Yankees went nearer to Richmond than any during the war. I
should say the distance by the Brook turnpike was about two miles and one
John's brother Wellington Goddin Worsham was also in the 21st. The book is
used as a source material for several Civil War books. John's father Richard was
"born at the family's Bermuda Hundred estate in 1804."(James Noel
Worsham, 1/21/99) The entire book may be viewed at: http://metalab.unc.edu/docsouth/worsham/worsham.html
The following is recorded on a page of Pvt. John H. Worsham's diary of 2st
“As we returned a Yankee battery of eight guns had full play on us in the
field, and our line became a little confused; we halted, every man instantly
turned and faced the battery. As we did so, I heard a thud on my right, as if
one had been struck with a heavy fist. Looking around I saw a man at my side
standing erect, with his head off, a stream of blood spurting a foot or more
from his neck. As I turned farther around, I saw three others lying on the
ground, all killed by this cannon shot. The man standing was a captain in the
42nd Va. Regt., and his brains and blood bespattered the face and clothing of
one of my company, who was standing in the rear. This was the second time I saw
four men killed by one shot. The other occurred in the battle of Cedar Run, a
few weeks earlier. Each time the shot struck as it was descending - the first
man had his head taken off, the next was shot through the breast, the next
through the stomach, and the fourth had all his bowels torn out. ( http://www.cwartillery.org/recoll.html

The following biography was written about him pp 799 & 800 of
"Encyclopedia of Virginia Biography by Lyon Gardiner Tyler, Vol V (NY:
Lewis Historical Publishing Co., 1915):
George Gibson Worsham, of
Richmond, is a son of John Henry and Mary Bell (Pilcher) Worsham, who had
children: 1. Bell, married S. Edward Bates, Jr., and had daughters, Mildred
and Mary. 2. Jessie, died in infancy. 3. George Gibson, of further mention. 4.
Natalie, wife of W. Wirt Henry, and mother of John W. Henry. George Gibson
Worsham is a grandson of Richard and Clark R. (Goddin) Worsham, the latter a
sister of Wellington Goddin. Mr. Worsham's father, John H. Worsham, was a
Confederate soldier, having served throughout the war until he was wounded at
Winchester in 1864. He is the author of "One of Jackson's Foot
Cavalry." Shortly after the war he went to Scottsville, where he engaged
in the milling business and operated a line of boats on the old James river
and Kanawha canal until the canal was sold to the Richmond & Alleghany
railroad, when he returned to Richmond and engaged in the insurance business.
George Gibson Worsham b November 26, 1874, at Scottsville, Virginia, and
was educated at his mother's knee and in the public schools of Richmond and
Scottsville. Mr. Worsham took to printing early in life, and earned enough to
pay for his small press and buy a bicycle before leaving school. He then went
with Joseph Bryan who shortly after acquired the "Richmond Times."
Mr. Worsham then went to New York and learned the operation of the linotype
machine, and in 1892 set up the first of these machines in this section of the
country. Mr. Worsham met the late Otmar Mergenthaler, the inventor of the
linotype in Baltimore, on his return from New York, and had him explain the
working of the wonderful machine to him.
When the "Evening Leader" was reestablished in 1896, Mr. Worsham
took charge of the mechanical department of the newspaper, and made up the
first forms of that paper, which attracted wide attention and were the first
display or modern newspaper pages made up in Virginia. In 1899 Mr. Worsham
left the "Evening Leader, and with Harvey L. Wilson, now editor of the
"Ledger-Dispatch" of Norfolk, Virginia, established the
"Richmond News," and when they sold this paper to the John L.
Williams interests Mr. Worsham formed an association with Charles A. Zincke
and they organized the "Richmond Press." This printing establishment
is one of the largest of its kind in Virginia, and occupies spacious and
convenient quarters in Richmond. Some years ago it bought from the late Dr.
Hunter McGuire's heirs the old St. Luke's Hospital building at the corner of
Ross and Governor streets, and erected upon the site the present mammoth
Richmond Press building. In 1913 Mr. Worsham acquired the Patterson tobacco
factories, at the corner of Seventh and Canal streets, and there erected the
present modern Express building.
He married, November 27, 1907, Julia
Pilcher, of Petersburg, daughter of
Rev. John Mason Pilcher, D. D. for three years president of the Baptist
General Association of Virginia, and his wife, Mary Lucy Du Val. Children:

Blacksburg, VA., Lots of people build new houses. Gibson Worsham built an
old one. His house was completed just last winter, but you’d never know
it. It looks just as ancient as the other buildings here at Yellow Sulphur
Springs - the 200-year old mineral spring resort just outside Blacksburg.
Worsham’s abode is studded with salvage yard finds and pieces of older
buildings. Forget about vinyl siding; Worsham’s comes from poplar trees
cut down in the adjacent woods and milled in his front yard. (The siding for
his house required four trees, Worsham said; and for his nearby shed, two).
Many of the house lights are gas. Heating also is by gas; the oven and
refrigerator run on gas, too. The furniture is antique. Worsham, an
architect who has lived at the old resort intermittently since his student
years in the 1970s, said he wanted his new house to fit in. "It’s
such an extraordinary complex of buildings," explained Worsham, who
lives here with his wife and children. "All are part of an
architectural vision that you can feel when you are there....We decided to
build something that would recreate the antique spirit of the place."
