Randolph County, named after noted Virginia statesman John Randolph,  has been a part of four nations, three territories, two states, four counties, and is older by one year than the state of  Arkansas itself.  What is now Randolph County was originally a small part of the Louisiana Purchase -- over 1 million acres bought from France by the United States in 1803.  The District of Louisiana was designated in 1804.  In 1805, the District of New Madrid was established.  From 1813 to 1815, it was part of the County of New Madrid in the Territory of Missouri.  Lawrence County in the Territory of Missouri held the land from 1815 to 1819.  From 1819 until 1835, it was a part of  Lawrence County, Arkansas Territory.  In 1835, Randolph officially came into existence as a separate county in the Arkansas Territory.  Arkansas was admitted to statehood in 1836.
