John Hennessey of the National Park Service commented on the number of burials performed by Rev. Randolph. (Search for “Randolph” below).

“That winter of 1861 into early 1862, what with the death of soldiers and all the children from the Scarlett Fever epidemic—what a time that was for Fredericksburg. That epidemic was likely the most deadly event in the town’s history. I wrote about it a few years, referencing your Evy and George Doswell.
