Historical Note
Ann Cary Randolph Morris, also known as Nancy Randolph, and sister of Judith (Randolph) Randolph. Judith (Randolph) Randolph was wife of Richard Randolph, and the rumor that Richard Randolph of "Bizarre," Cumberland County, Va. murdered the infant child of his wife's sister (Ann Cary Randolph) and that he had allegedly fathered the child led to a hearing in Cumberland County, Va. The incident was known as the Bizarre Scandal and two fictional novels, The Bizarre Sisters (1951) and Mistress Nancy (1980), were written on the subject.
