PREFACE 

The compiler of this Genealogical History has sometimes been 
asked why he undertook this laborious task, — a work which, if 
faithfully done, involves great labor and is of very uncertain finan- 
cial issue. His answer is that in writing the History of Easton, 
Mass.,* he became interested in this kind of work, not as a voca- 
tion, but as an avocation, and he selected the Randall family 
because it was the largest and one of the most important families 
of the town in its earlier days. 

Robert Randall, the immigrant ancestor of the Easton Ran- 
dalls, settled in Weymouth, Mass., about 1635, a man of com- 
paratively large means. His grandsons, Thomas, Samuel, Israel, 
and Ephraim, in 1694, settled in Taunton North Purchase, the 
eastern part of which became the town of Easton in 1725. They 
were a prolific race and for nearly a century their descendants, in 
point of numbers, were the leading family in town. One of the 
several Randall coats of arms bears for its motto the legend, 
" Nil extra numerum," which may be translated, " Nothing except 
numbers," a legend which, instead of the boastful assertion of 
invincible valor, extraordinary services to king and country, royal 
origin or exceptional antiquity, only makes the modest claim of 
being a numerous family, a claim fully justified by the Robert 
line. The coat of arms here alluded to consists of a shield sur- 
mounted by the head of an antelope holding in its mouth a floral 
spray and a scroll below the shield, but the writer emphatically 
disclaims the pretension that it belongs distinctly to this family; 
at present it is only known to be one of the Randall coats of 
arms. 

Very few Randalls left the town of Easton for nearly a hundred 
years. After the Revolutionary war there was, however, quite a 
migration, many settling in the State of Maine and in western 
Massachusetts, some of them receiving grants of land for military 
services. The early Randalls of Easton were well-to-do people,

Chaffin; published in 1886 by the University Press, Cambridge, Mass.

one of them being for years the largest taxpayer in town. They 
were very enterprising, builders of sawmills and grist mills, and 
engaging in various industries. Their character was good, and 
they were a distinctly religious people in early days, prominent 
in the church, several of them being deacons. Indeed, there was 
always a good deal of what someone called " deacon timber " in 
this family. Speaking for his branch of the Robert line, George 
A. Randall, of Cleveland, Ohio, says that none of these Randalls 
" ever held office, or was wealthy, or a pauper, or insane, or a 
criminal, or was sued for debt, or was ever intoxicated." And al- 
though the writer's ampler knowledge of this family would prevent 
his making this claim for them all, he is confident that in character 
they would bear a favorable comparison with other worthy New 
England families. Its patriotism is proved by the fact that 
twenty-five of them in Easton enlisted in the Revolutionary War 
service; and their descendants wishing to join the Sons or Daugh- 
ters of the American Revolution may read the complete war rec- 
ords of these patriots in this History, records they will find fully 
substantiated in the " Mass. Soldiers and Sailors in the American 
Revolution," published by the State and found in all first-class 
libraries. 

The compiler of the Randall Genealogy derives much satisfac- 
tion from the thought that he has rescued from threatened oblivion 
the names of some members of the family whose characters and 
services well deserved to be kept in remembrance by some such 
memorial as this. He has done his best to deserve the gratitude 
of this family by a faithful, accurate, and thorough history. It 
has involved great labor and considerable expense during the last 
twenty years. Whether or not this expense and that of publishing 
this book will be covered by its sales is a subject of doubt, for the 
demand for it must necessarily be limited almost entirely to the 
members of the family. The writer trusts that they will reward 
him for this laborious task and secure him from financial loss by 
a sufficient number of subscriptions to cover the large expense 
alluded to. 

Doubtless some errors will be discovered in this History. No 
genealogy is free from them, the sources of error being very 
numerous. Town records are often defective and mistakes in 
copying may readily occur. The same is true of family records. 
Badly written manuscripts have to be deciphered. Even grave- 



PEEFACE Xlll 

stone inscriptions are not always to be trusted, particularly in 
their allusions to the character of those of whom they are memo- 
rials, epitaphs being sometimes monumental lies. Not only 
omissions, but even falsifications, of dates are, for obvious reasons, 
occasionally made. Data furnished by members of a family at 
one time occasionally differ from data previously or afterwards 
given by the same parties. What seem to be equally good authori- 
ties are sometimes at variance, and guesswork is made to supply 
the lack of record. These and other considerations should lead 
the reader of any genealogy to be slow to blame the compiler, who 
may have used the utmost care, as the compiler of this genealogy 
has done, to be as accurate and thorough as the nature of this 
kind of work permitted. This book would have been published 
long since, but for the writer's determination to eliminate, as far 
as possible, all errors from his record. 

The writer of this History, not content with merely presenting 
a list of names and dates, has used his utmost endeavor to learn 
something of the career and experience of the heads of the Randall 
families, so as to add a touch of personal interest to an otherwise 
dry list of statistics, and he has thus been able to make this 
genealogy more biographical, and hence more readable, than is 
common in books of this kind. In his large correspondence with 
members of this family and with other persons from whom he 
sought information, the compiler has met with almost uniform, 
and sometimes with exceptional, courtesy, and for this he hereby 
expresses his hearty gratitude. Did space permit he would gladly 
give the names of these numerous correspondents ; but he cannot 
refrain from mentioning the names of Aaron F. Randall, president 
of the " Randall Historical Association of America," who has 
kindly enriched this work by a most valuable paper on the Randall 
family in general ; Dr. F. D. Randall, treasurer of the Association, 
for important suggestions and data ; Rev. George G. Withington, 
the able and careful town clerk of Easton, Mass. ; the late Hon. 
Joseph W. Porter, of Bangor, Me., from whom he was the recipient 
years ago of a manuscript copy of the Vital Statistics of Wey- 
mouth, Mass., the first American home of the Robert Randall 
family, and whose widow has since given valuable assistance ; Mr. 
and Mrs. Nelson Randall, of Belchertown, Mass. ; Mrs. David Bill- 
ings, of Hatfield, Mass., and Miss Emma Gould, of Portland, Me., 
all of whom have been of real service, Mrs. Billings even going to

INTRODUCTORY ESSAY 

THE RANDALL FAMILIES OF AMERICA 

By Aaron F. Randall, President of the " Randall Historical 
Association of America," Incorporated. 

No one, unless he has undertaken the work, can realize the vast 
amount of detail and annoyances involved in the task of compiling 
a genealogy of the descendants of one of the first immigrant 
settlers of New England. 

There were many of these immigrants who came during the 
seventeenth and first half of the eighteenth centuries, having the 
same surname — particularly from England — and who were blessed 
with large families of children. These children in turn raised 
large families. 

With the development of the country, and the settlement of the 
newer States immediately succeeding the close of the Revolutionary 
War, large numbers of their descendants settled in New York, 
Pennsylvania, and Ohio, and from thence through the Western 
and Pacific States, until they are now to be found in almost every 
county in those newer settled regions. 

The collection of data relating to the descendants of any one 
of these immigrant settlers requires a vast amount of correspond- 
ence, and only by elimination can the line of his descendants be 
traced, and disconnected from other persons having the same sur- 
name. Owing to the repeated migrations from the older States 
to the newly opened up territories of the West, representatives 
of any one of the families of descendants of the immigrant will be 
found scattered in every county between the Atlantic and Pacific 
and they know little or nothing of family history. 

Strange as it may appear, but a very few of these descendants 
can give the names and birthplaces of their great-grandparents 
or even of their grandparents, — and will tell one that their ances- 
tors came from " down East." 

The only States in which vital records were kept by the first 
settlers are those included in New England, but the citizens 
of the newer States are beginning to comprehend the value of such 
records, and in many of them suitable blank books are provided 
for the proper officers — who are required to keep records of all 
births, marriages, and deaths. New York in 1840 adopted a com- 






XVI INTRODUCTORY ESSAY 

plete system, and prior to that date, few towns kept any vital 
records in that State. 

Within the last few years the rapid increase of patriotic socie- 
ties has created a spirit of inquiry as to the ancestors of persons 
desiring to join the same. 

This spirit of inquiry is not confined to any particular State 
or locality, but permeates every class of people who claim descent 
from immigrant ancestors of the seventeenth and eighteenth cen- 
turies in every State of the Union. Old family Bibles are being 
looked after, family papers, preserved for generations from family 
sentiment, are being brought out and overhauled. The probate 
and land records are being examined for data and much valuable 
history covering the last two hundred years is brought to light. 

Numerous genealogies have been and are being compiled for 
publication , family associations composed of descendants of an 
immigrant ancestor are constantly being organized, and reunions 
held, and as family histories are compiled there arises a desire to 
learn who and what sort of people were the immigrant's English 
ancestry. 

The family name of Randall is distinctly traceable back to the 
period of the Norman Conquest of England, a. d. 1066. It first 
appears in the celebrated " Doomsday Book " of William the 
Conqueror in the assignment of lands bearing this name, as 
" Tenants in Capite," immediately from the crown, and restricted 
to those who accompanied the Conqueror from his native kingdom 
of Normandy, of which they may have been native citizens or the 
descendants of those who came over from Denmark or Norway 
with Rollo the Dane in 901. 

The name Randall, spelled in different forms, is of frequent 
occurrence in the year books or records of legal proceedings and 
judicial decisions from the beginning of the reign of Edward II. 
to the end of that of Henry the VIII., a period of about two 
hundred years, from 1327 to 1547, and many of the name have 
borne coats of arms granted for distinguished services. The name 
is a modification of that of Randolfe — or Randolph, and many 
individuals and families have used both names indifferently. Sev- 
eral of the name were among the first immigrants from England to 
America. 

Savage, in his Genealogical Dictionary, has given the names of 
three generations of these Randall immigrants who came to New 
England prior to 1692 as follows: William Randall, of Scituate, 
Mass., came from the port of London in the ship Expectacon

the 24th of April, 1635, to the Island of Providence. He was 
twenty-six years of age, and took the oath of Supremacy and 
Allegiance as then required of every person leaving England. 

Widow Elizabeth Randall and her sons John and Stephen were 
at Watertown, Mass., in 1653. Her descendants are numerous 
in New England, New York, and the West, and among them was 
Alexander W. Randall, who was twice Governor of Wisconsin, 
Assistant P. M. General under Lincoln, Ambassador to Rome, and 
Postmaster General in Johnson's Cabinet. 

Abraham Randall sailed from Plymouth, Eng., for Boston, 
30th March, 1630, with Rev. John Wareham in the ship Mary 
and John. 

Nathaniel, son and heir of John Randall, of the Parish of St. 
James Clerkenwell, London, Eng., was in Boston, received a land 
grant in Groton, Conn., in 1695, estate of his uncle, Sir William 
Morton, who died in New London in 1659 ; he was last heard from 
in Philadelphia, Pa., in 1695. 

William Randall, of Newbury, Mass., b. 1615. 

Anthony Randall, a physician, Salem, Mass., 1685. 

Richard Randall, of Saco, Me. ; had a family. 

Thomas Randall, of Marblehead prior to Feb., 1665. 

John Randall, of Westerly, R. I., 1667 ; had lived in Newport, 
R. I. ; was one of the original proprietors of Westerly ; died about 
1846. Had sons : 1. John, b. 1666 ; d. at Westerly, R. I. 2. Ste- 
phen, b. abt. 1668. 3. Matthew, b. 1671, and d. at Hopkinton, 
R. I., 1736. 4. Peter, b. abt. 1673; d. at Preston, Conn. The 
writer of this article is descended from Matthew in the sixth gen- 
eration. 

The descendants of John 1 Randall have become very numerous 
and widely scattered through the United States and British 
Provinces. 

James Randall (spelled Rendell), Portsmouth, N. H., 1686. 

Matthew Randall, ancestor of Hon. Samuel J. Randall, Speaker 
of House of Representatives at Washington, D. C, came to 
America and settled in Philadelphia in 1792. 

There were several others of the name who came to America 
prior to 1800. 

Hotten in his " Old Lists of Persons of Quality coming to 
New England, 1600-1700," gives the names Bartholomew Randall 
and Henry Randall, sent from Bristol, England, to the Barbadoes 
in 1685, as Rebels who served under the Duke of Marmouth. 

He also names an Edward Randall as owning 11 acres of Land 



XV111 INTRODUCTORY ESSAY 

in the Parish of St. Michael, Barbadoes, in 1680. He had 1 hired 
Servant and 16 slaves. 

The majority of the first immigrants to America were from the 
yeomanry or middle class of the people, with a large element of 
gentry or younger sons of armorial families who by the law of 
primogeniture were cut off from inheritance of the paternal es- 
tates. These people, many of whom were also Non-Conformists, 
came to better their fortunes in the new country. 

They were people well educated for their times, who thought 
for themselves, tenacious and clear in their religious beliefs, and 
imbued with a sturdy independence of character, which traits are 
still to be found among their descendants and have made the peo- 
ple of the United States the great and powerful nation of to-day. 

The feelings of kinship and friendship between the descendants 
of the first immigrants and the people of England exist to-day in 
a marked degree, and will increase as time elapses, and we all 
desire to trace our lineage back to the parent stock. 

Members of the different Randall families have taken a promi- 
nent and active part in the military and civil history of the 
country since the first settlement of the colonies down to date — 
and have reflected honor on the name and country — and every one 
connected with the name should feel a personal interest in those 
who have become prominent as soldiers or civilians. 

Our immigrant ancestors were mostly Non-Conformists, and 
came to the Colonies to escape the oppressive provisions of the 
" Act of Supremacy and Allegiance " ; and, as they would not 
subscribe to this oath as required by the English law, when leav- 
ing the kingdom, they could only leave clandestinely at some minor 
port or by taking ship after it had sailed, and this departure 
from England was kept from the authorities, consequently but 
few records of their ancestry can now be found. It is difficult, if 
not impossible, to find the English ancestry of more than three 
or four American Randall families. Doubtless by the outlay of 
considerable sums, for the employment of skilled parties to search 
English public and family archives, some could trace their English 
ancestors. 

Those members of the families of the fleeing emigrants who re- 
mained in England did not preserve any records of the destina- 
tions of the refugees, lest the vigilant officers of the crown might 
vent their spite upon those within their reach, and interchange of 
letters was infrequent at the time. In a few years the emigrant 



INTRODUCTORY ESSAY XIX 

was forgotten at the old home, and on arrival in America the 
immigrant soon cut entirely away from those left in England. 

The immigrant Randalls mostly came from the sturdy middle 
classes of the kingdom, and were men of strong and earnest con- 
victions and untiring energy, characteristics now plainly evident 
in their living descendants. It is true that Burke in his " Gen- 
eral Armory of Great Britain " describes the recognized coats of 
arms of eighteen Randall families which are nearly all similar in 
design, but it will be difficult, if not impossible, for more than 
two or three American families to prove their right to use these 
coats of arms. 

This work is a compilation of the descendants of Robert Ran- 
dall, of Weymouth, Mass., who came from Wendover in Bucking- 
hamshire, England, and settled in Weymouth prior to 1640. He 
was born in 1608. It has been compiled by Rev. William L. Chaf- 
fin, of North Easton, Bristol County, Mass., and has been a labor 
of many years and at a heavy expense to trace out and get into 
communication with the numerous descendants. It is the first 
genealogy of all the descendants of an immigrant Randall ances- 
tor. There have been several others of branches of a family, but 
none including all branches of descendants of an immigrant an- 
cestor. 

A few words touching the purposes of the " Randall Historical 
Association of America." 

There are about twenty-five distinct Randall families, compris- 
ing about thirty thousand living descendants descended from im- 
migrant ancestors in the United States and the British Provinces, 
most of those residing in the latter being related to the American 
families. 

Three persons belonging to as many distinct families have been 
engaged for years in collecting material for genealogies of their 
respective families, and so many of the descendants, of these and 
other Randall families were found that it was decided to effect 
an organization acting under a charter to give it character and 
permanence. In June, 1908, a broad and liberal charter was 
granted by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, perfecting the 
organization. The scope of its articles is much wider than in 
associations including the descendants of a single ancestor, and 
includes the descendants of each of the several immigrant ancestors 
of the name of Randall, and the result will be to make its records 
the repositories of the genealogical, historical, and personal data 



XX INTRODUCTORY ESSAY 

of each family, whether of American or Provincial birth or nativ- 
ity. It is intended to hold a national reunion annually at which 
Randall descendants and blood will meet and become personally 
acquainted with each other, and thus create a deep and wide- 
spreading family feeling and pride in the name. 

It is further the purpose of the association to collect for preser- 
vation for future use genealogical data of all kinds whether from 
American or English sources, and, as soon as its means will per- 
mit, to publish a monthly or quarterly magazine devoted exclu- 
sively to Randall history. 

Any person of good reputation and of the Caucasian race bear- 
ing the name of " Randall," or any of the numerous modifications 
of the spelling of the name, or being of descent from ancestors of 
the name or of the allied families related by blood or marriage, 
may become by vote of the Board of Directors a life member, upon 
the payment of the sum of Ten Dollars ($10) to the Treasurer 
of the Association at time of making application, and shall there- 
after be free from all annual dues ; and any person eligible as above 
may become an annual member, upon the payment of the sum of 
one dollar to the Treasurer at time of making application for 
membership, and the further sum of one dollar annual dues in 
advance. 

At any time within the current year of an annual membership 
upon the payment of the further sum of nine dollars to the Treas- 
urer of the Association that officer shall issue to him or her a cer- 
tificate of life membership in the Association. Applicants for 
membership shall transmit, with their application in writing, their 
pedigree for as many generations back as possible ; the same to be 
filed among the records of the Association. 

The treasurer will send to the applicant, upon request, the re- 
quired blanks for such pedigree. 

The Board of Directors shall have the right and power to reject 
any such application for membership or to drop or expel any 
member from the association for good and satisfactory reasons. 

The association is increasing in numbers and influence, its per- 
petuity being ensured by its charter. 

It will establish connections with " Randalls " in England as 
rapidly as possible, and through them try to trace the ancestors 
of the immigrants to America. 



DESCENDANTS OF ROBERT RANDALL 



FIRST GENERATION 



Robert Randall, the founder of one branch of the Randall 
family of America, was born in England in 1608, and died May 
3, 1691, in Weymouth,. Mass. He came to this country about 
1635 and settled in Weymouth. His name appears on the records 
of the Mass. General Court, Jan. 10, 1640, where, at the Quarter 
Court, he is tried upon some charge, but is subsequently acquitted. 
His name occurs on the vital records of Weymouth as early as 
Sept., 1640, also in Jan. 1642. Tracts of land are recorded as 
granted to, or owned by, him, in 1644, and in the division of 
Weymouth lands of 1663 he comes into possession of large tracts, 
one of them being on the west side of the town adjoining Braintree. 

He was admitted as freeman of the Colony May 26, 1647. In 
a deposition made by him and recorded in the Mass. Archives, 
Vol. C, xxiv, 16, he states under date of July 2, 1688, that he 
was eighty years of age, and that prior to coming to this country 
he was " living for sometime in Wendover, Bucks Co., England." 
This statement suggested Wendover as his native place. Accord- 
ingly the author of this genealogy employed a competent person 
to go to Wendover and ascertain the facts of the case. The 
examination revealed no trace of Robert Randall or of any of the 
Randall name. The oldest and best informed residents had never 
heard that any of the family resided there; no Randall tomb- 
stones were found, and the vicar of the Wendover parish did not 
discover the name on his church records, which, however, only 
dated from 1632. The conclusion necessitated by these facts was 
that Robert Randall was only temporarily resident at Wendover, 
and was not a native of the town. His English origin must there- 
fore for the present remain an unsolved problem. In the records 
of Bath Abbey Christenings in England, at dates not far from 
that of Robert Randall's birth, many Roberts appear — that name 
and the names afterwards common in the Robert line being very 
often used, and they suggest tfie probability that Robert of Wey- 
mouth, Mass., came from this line, but this is only conjecture.

4 DESCENDANTS OF ROBERT RANDALL 

Robert Randall's will, Suffolk Probate, Vol. viii, pp. 41, 42, 
was dated March 27, 1691. It begins as follows : " I, Robert 
Randall, of Weymouth, in New England, being weake of body but 
of competent memory and of a disposing mind, committing my 
selfe both soule and body unto Almighty God in hope of Eternal 
life and happiness through Jesus Christ his Son, and my only 
Saviour and Redeemer: Doe make this my last Will and Testa- 
ment," etc. 

His will was executed by his mark in the presence of Mary Vin- 
ing, Joseph Dyer, and William Chard. He died May 3, 1691, 
and his will was proved May 25th following. 

He gave to his eldest son, John, two-thirds of the pasture land, 
lying in the Range Field, being about nine acres ; also two acres 
of swamp lying betwixt the land of his son John and his son 
Thomas, bounded by Joseph Dyer and Thomas Drake's land. 
Also one-half of the fresh meadow land " lying betwixt my son 
John his dwelling house, and my orchard." Also seven acres in 
the first division of " Weymouth town commons." 

To his youngest son, Thomas, he gave his dwelling house and 
outhouse, two orchards, one-third of pasture with other lands 
adjoining the Plymouth line. 

To daughter Mary, wife of Abraham Staples, of Mendon, and 
daughter Hannah, wife of John Warfield, of Mendon, £5 each. 

His son John to be sole executor. 

The inventory was made by John Shaw and Joseph Dyer, May 
16, 1691, the total being £154, lis 2d. 

The exact date of Robert Randall's arrival in this country and 
his settling in Weymouth cannot be determined. It was certainly 
prior to 1640, for his name appears upon the Mass. General Court 
records in January of that year. Whether his first marriage 
occurred in England and his two sons were born there, or this mar- 
riage and these births occurred in Weymouth, Mass., cannot be 
learned. Considerations that need not be detailed here make it 
seem very probable that the sons John and Thomas were born in 
Weymouth some time between 1630 and 1640, Robert's first wife 
dying at this latter date. Her name was Mary. By her Robert 
Randall had: 

2 i. John, b. probably at Weymouth bet. 1630 and 1640; d. Feb. 

25, 1718, in Taunton North Purchase. 

3 ii. Thomas, b. probably at Weymouth bet. 1630 and 1640; d. June 

11, 1711, in Taunton North Purchase. 



FIRST GENERATION O 

Robert's first wife, Mary, died in Weymouth, Sept., 1640,* and 
he soon married, second, Mary French, sister of Stephen French, 
who, in his will, 1679, mentions his " sister Mary Randall." The 
children of Robert and Mary, the second wife, were: 

iii. Mary, b. Jan. 20, 1642. She married, Sept. 19, 1660, Abra- 
ham Staples, of Weymouth, who removed to Mendon in 1663, 
becoming one of its first settlers, and they had: 1. Abraham, 
b. June 14, 1663; m. Mehitable Hayward, and d. Jan. 30, 
1707. 2. John, b. 1667; d. after 1725. 3. Mary, b. April 1, 
1668; d. June 29, 1669- 4. Jacob, b. Nov. 10, 1669; m. 1st, 
Abigail Winter, and 2d, Widow Mary Briggs, and d. 1724. 
5. Ebenezer, b. 1677; m. 1st, Widow Huldah Aldrich, 2d, 
Mehitable Barron, 3d, Mary Davis, d. March 27, 1758. 6. 
Ephraim, b. Sept. 2, 1678; m. Elizabeth Webster, and d. abt. 
1709. 7. Mary, b. Feb. 8, 1681; d. Jan. 27, 1682. 8. Ben- 
jamin, b. Dec. 27, 1682; d. Oct. 29, 1683. 9- Hannah, b. 
May 13, 1686; m. John Darling. 

Abraham Staples, Sr., d. in Mendon, Oct. 20, 1703, and his

SECOND GENERATION 



John (Robert 1), b. probably at Weymouth, between 1630 
and 1640; d. Feb. 25, 1718. He lived for a while in Braintree, 
but most of his life was spent in Weymouth; a wheelwright by 
occupation. By his father's will John Randall received two-thirds 
of the pasture land lying in the Range Field, of about nine acres, 
with two acres of swamp lying between his own land and the land 
of his brother Thomas ; bounded by Joseph Dyer and Thomas 
Drake. Also one-half of the fresh meadow lying between his own 
dwelling house and his father's orchard, together with seven acres 
of the first division of Weymouth town commons. This was lot 
No. 66 in the division of 1663; and he appears at the time of his 
father's death to have been a householder in Weymouth. The 
record of land conveyances contains no information respecting 
John Randall, no deed to or from him appearing to be of record. 
His will dated Dec. 28, 1715, was proved April 7, 1718. In it he 
calls himself senior, late of Weymouth ; wheelwright. He gives to 
wife Sarah £30 provided she acquit the estate of any claim by 
reason of an ante-nuptial contract. Gave to daughter, Mary 
Philips, £45 ; to daughter Mercy Kingman £45 ; to daughter Read 
(Hannah), wife of Thomas Reed, £45 ; to daughter Elizabeth, wife 
of Benjamin Orcutt, £35; to son-in-law, Benjamin Ludden, five 
shillings, and to grandson, John Ludden, £20 on reaching twenty- 
one. To son John Randall he gave the rest of the estate and 

made him executor. His first wife was doubtless that Mary 

Randall whose death is stated on the Braintree records to have 
occurred June 28, 1666. Children: 

i. Mary, of whom we only know that she d. July, 1666. 
Soon after his first wife's death he m., 1667, Mercy Aldrich, 
the dau. of George and Katharine of Braintree, Mass., where she 
was born, April 17, 1650. Their children were:

1664, son of Richard and Mary (Packard) and they lived

8 DESCENDANTS OF ROBERT RANDALL 

The marriage of several of these children in Braintree and 
the death of their parents there suggest that they may have 
moved to that place. Benjamin, the father, d. June 19, 1752, 
and Sarah, his wife, d. Oct. 20, 1732. 
Mercy, the 2d wife of John Randall, d. Sept. 26, 1702, and he 
m. 3d, Sarah (Judkins) Pittee, widow of Joseph Pittee, of Wey- 
mouth, whom she m. May 7, 1662. This wife, Sarah, is mentioned, 
with his children, in his will. He d. Feb. 25, 1718. The date of 
death of the 3d wife, Sarah, is not known, but she was alive as 
late as April 28, 172-3. 



Thomas (Robert 1), b. probably in Weymouth between 1630 
and 1640, and lived in Weymouth until the autumn of 1695. By 
his father's will he was given his father's " dwelling house and 
outhousing, and many acres of land including two orchards, mea- 
dows, and pasture lands." Although one of the wealthiest citizens 
of Weymouth he did not disdain the humble office of sexton of 
the meeting-house, — for in 1681 he is " allowed £1, 10s for ringing 
the bell and sweeping the meeting-house." The price for such serv- 
ice advanced in time, as we see by the fact that on March 13, 1688, 
he agreed to ring the bell and sweep the meeting-house for forty 
shillings in money for the ensuing year. On the 4th day of March, 
1695, he was chosen by the town one of the three surveyors for the 
ensuing year, but he did not serve the full term of office, for later 
in the year he sold much of his property in Weymouth and re- 
moved with his family to the eastern part of Taunton North Pur- 
chase, a large tract of land which included all that became the 
town of Easton, nearly all of Mansfield and about one-third of the 
town of Norton. There were fifty-four shares of this large tract 
which had been purchased of the Indians in 1668, mainly by 
Taunton men. Thomas Randall bought half of the fifty-first 
share and the land set apart to him was at what became Easton, 
it being located at South Easton, including what is called " the 
Green," but being chiefly east and north of it, the mill stream run- 
ning through it. On the north side of it he built his house, part 
of the land there being to-day owned by his descendants, and on 
the stream he and his son Thomas erected the first sawmill of the 
place, and the noise of its wheel made the sweetest possible music 
to the settlers who were so much in need of the lumber with which 
to erect their dwellings. That he was piously inclined soon ap-

their arrival in their new home : " Thomas Randall, William Man- 
ley, and their neighbors allowed to come here to meeting, and to 
make a horse-bridge over Cutting Cove River," now known as 
Quesett River in Easton. Thomas was b. probably in Weymouth 
between 1630 and 1640; d. June 11, 1711, in Taunton North 
Purchase; m. 1st, Joan Drake, bap. Dec. 15, 1628, in Colyton,

John {John £), b. April 16, 1673, in Weymouth, where he 
lived all his life and where he died Sept. 4, 1730. In his will he 
calls himself a " husbandman," elsewhere is called a " wheelwright." 
He was an extensive land owner, as is shown by his large pur- 
chases and sales of land. The inventory of his estate taken after 
his death amounted to £3056-0s-5d, a large sum for that date. 
By his will he gave to his wife, Susanna, the whole estate until the 
youngest child should be eighteen years old, but provided that if 
she marry, the estate should be divided — one-third to the widow 
and the rest to the children, except that the daughter Mary was 
to have £20 more than the rest, the reason for this preference not 
being stated. John Randall m. abt. 1696 Susanna Benson, dau. 
of Joseph, of Hull. She was b. abt. 1678, and d. May 11, 1761. 
It is curious to note that they had nine daughters and no sons, 
their grandchildren aggregating forty-two that are on record, 
and doubtless others that did not get upon the incomplete records 
of that early time. Children :

Thomas (Thomas 3), b. in Weymouth abt. 1673; d. in Easton 
June 4, 1752. He settled in Taunton North Purchase, now Eas- 
ton, 1695, going there with his father and brothers, and he built 
his house at what is now known as the Morse place in South 
Easton. But after a few years he took up over thirty acres of 
land in what became North Easton, land that included the present 
site of the office of the great Ames Shovel Company. Here, about 
1720, he built a sawmill and did a good deal of business. During 
the early years of Easton he was the largest property owner in 
town, paying a tax double that of any other resident. These 
early Randalls were all prosperous and were prominent and influ- 
ential people. They were quite religious, this Thomas being a 
deacon of the church, as other Randalls were. Indeed the Randall 
family were prolific in what some one called " deacon timber." 
In 1727 it was voted in town meeting that Deacon Randall should 
make a pair of stocks for the use of the town ; and more than one 
culprit exposed to shame in them had a chance to discover if the 
deacon did this piece of work well. He had served as tythingman, 
constable, and " Preesink dark," before the incorporation of the 
town. Thomas m. Jan. 20, 1697, Rachel, dau. of Samuel Lincoln,

* Mary Randall, wife of Pelatiah Phinney, became insane and was cared 
for at her father's. She disappeared in the manner explained in the follow- 
ing notice, which was issued and posted by Timothy Randall, one of the 
selectmen of Easton, and which is here copied verbatim: 

"Mary Phinney got out of Timothy Randells house in Easton in the county 
of Bristol, in the night following the 22d Day of August 1772. By breaking 
and cutting 4 pannals of glafs and the Sashes, the Doors were fastened 
& windows nailed. She being small of stature, Dark complection; Black 
eyes & hair: head amost all shaved; a small mould near her nose on her right 
cheek, lost one of her under fore teeth, her flesh much pined away, being 
in the 34th year of her age. She had on a striped reed & black couler, a 
darkish peticot, Blue stockens; a pair shoes, Brass Buckles, & carred away 
a striped worsted or woollen gown mostly Blue, a striped peticot mostly Blue, 
a sheet and pillow case; a Bible & a case Knife, and we have never seen 
nor heard of her sence. Diligent search for her for near : 3 : miles every 
way. Supposed that a thousand days has ben spent in searching for her. 
She had been under the Doctr hands near 8 weeks, and thought to be His- 
taricke or Delirious. She endeavored to hide herself & was much afraid of 
every Body and often Refused to eat or speak in sight of any person. It 
is earnestly Desired that whoever shall find her would be so kind as to take 
care of her and speedily send word to Timothy Randell or Daniel Alger of 
Easton in the county of Bristol, or to her husband Pelatiah Phinney of Mid- 
dleborough in the county of Plymouth." 

Notwithstanding this notice and the careful search that was made, Mary 
Randall Phinney was never again heard of.

ton, and later in the west part of Easton and was a blacksmith 
by occupation as well as a farmer. He was very prominent in 
town and church affairs. He was one of the selectmen for six 
years, a deacon in the church, and when a move was made in 1750 
to build a new meeting-house and locate it near the center of the 
town, it was he who headed a petition of remonstrants, and when 
the breach between the two parties in the church became wider, his 
faction seceded from the town church, organized a Presbyterian 
society and commenced to build a meeting-house. But this was a 
short-lived secession. Before long Robert Randall returned to 
the town church, and when in 1764 a new covenant was drawn up, 
the old one being carried away by the disgruntled seceding minis- 
ter, his name heads the list of signers. Deacon Robert was twice 
married, his second wife having considerable property. His will, 
dated Oct. 29, 1783, was drawn up by his minister, Rev. Archi- 
bald Campbell. In it we find this clause, " Imprimis : It is not 
my will and pleasure to bequeath any part of my worldly substance 
to my beloved wife, Keziah Randall, for the following reason, (viz) 
because we entered into a mutual agreement to quit each other's 
estate, as may be fully understood by said contract." He m. 1st,

twenty-eight Easton men under Captain Ebenezer Dean, of Col. 
Ephraim Leonard's regiment, which marched in the French and

unnecessary familiarity with an excommunicated person." 
He was labored with and "confessed his wickedness" and, 
April 14 the church gave him a letter of recommendation

Timothy (Ephraim 7), b. in Easton, Feb. 14, 1732; d. Feb. 1, 
1781 ; was a man of ability and of great influence in the town. 
He lived in South Easton, and on the death of his father in 1759 
succeeded to the ownership of the sawmill run by his father. He 
was one of the selectmen and assessors for nine years (1768-1777), 
and the assessors' returns which he prepared are perfect models 
of neatness. For his own private use and satisfaction he recorded 
a list of the deaths in Easton, beginning it when he was twenty- 
one years of age, and continuing it until his death in 1781 ; his 
list containing about 400 names. It has been of great service to 
the compiler of this History. The greatest service he rendered 
was in giving to the world his son Joshua, who became an original 
thinker and a preacher of great ability and force of character, 
one of the ablest men the town ever produced. Timothy died of 
a fever. A great-granddaughter wrote as follows of his final 
sickness : " The watchers left the room for a very short time. 
There was a mug of cider on the top shelf of the cupboard. He 
wanted a drink before he died, and determined to have some of the 
cider and abide by the consequences. He told his little daughter 
Zeruiah to get the mug and bring it to him. She used a kitchen 
chair back for a ladder and got it off from the top shelf, and 
carried it almost within his hands' reach, when the watchers came 
back and took it away from her; and my grandfather (Joshua 
Randall) thought if he had obtained the cider he would have got 
well." Timothy m. April 20, 1762, Zeruiah Bruce, b. 1730; d.

Beriah {Ephraim 7), b. in Easton, Nov. 11, 1734; d. Nov. 11, 
1800, being killed on his sixty-first birthday by a tree falling upon 
him. At the age of twenty years he enlisted for service in the 
French and Indian war, in a company raised by Captain Nathaniel 
Perry, of Easton. This company served several months and par- 
ticipated in the siege and surrender of Fort Cumberland in Nova 
Scotia. On April 13, 1760, he enlisted in the company of Captain 
Job Williams, of Taunton, and served until Dec. 6th, nearly eight 
months. He also saw six or eight days' service in the Revolution- 
ary war, enlisting for Rhode Island service in what was known as 
the " Tiverton Alarm." Two Easton companies marched there, 
but no British put in an appearance, and they all marched home 
again covered with dust, but not with glory. But this eight 
days' service with no enemy in sight makes Beriah a Revolutionary 
soldier, and entitles his descendants to join the S. A. R. or the 
D. A. R. Thus cheaply was this honor earned by many whose 
descendants pride themselves on the patriotism of their ancestors. 
His house was east of the sawmill at South Easton. Beriah m.

Hopestill (Ephraim 7), b. in Easton, July 29, 1742; d. April 
17, 1814. His homestead was at the northwest corner of Wash- 
ington and Main streets. It has been in the possession of his 
descendants ever since and is to-day owned and occupied by his 
great-great-granddaughter. Hopestill enjoys the distinction 
of having been a soldier in both the French and Indian and the 
Revolutionary wars. He enlisted March 24, 1762, in Captain 
Timothy Hammant's company and served about nine months, 
being discharged Nov. 1, and was, among the places where he 
served, at Crown Point. In the Revolutionary war he served for 
short terms in Captain Matthew Randall's company in 1775 and 
1776, and was in Rhode Island service in the same company and in 
Col. John Daggett's regiment three months in 1778. He was a 
Baptist in 1791 and afterwards probably a Methodist. It is worth 
recording as an illustration of the method of caring for paupers in 
earlier times, when the town " sold its poor " to the lowest bidder, 
that Hopestill bid off the care of a poor widow for a year for £5, 
14s 8d, which in the depreciated currency of the time amounted to 
about twenty dollars ! Hopestill m. Jan. 19, 1768, Submit Bruce,

He enlisted for the French and Indian war with his brother John, 
and served in Capt. Samuel Glover's company at the siege and 
taking of the strong fortress of Louisburg. He lived in a small 
house which he built in a pine grove south of Lincoln St., North 
Easton, which in later days came to be known as the " Old Castle." 
After his death the family became a town charge. In May, 1799, 
the town " voted foure shillings for shoger and Rum for David 
Randall's famely." The town also " voted to Abner Randall nine 
pounds for a coffin for David Randall." This sounds like a large 
sum of money for a pauper's coffin, but in fact the money was in 
a greatly depreciated currency. David's grave was near a rock 
on the east side of the " Old Castle." David m. Nov. 5, 1761,

and arriving at Fishkill, N. Y., June 22d. He served also in the 
same company in 1780 on a " Rhode Island alarm." In the War 
of 1812 he served at the age of sixty-six years (in 1814) on 
Coast Guard service at Plymouth. In 1776 in " Samuel Randall's 
school rick," (North Easton) he was hired to teach school at 
six dollars a month, and " ye said Sol'n Randell to bord himself."* 
The little schoolhouse he taught in stood at the intersection of 
Main and Canton streets. Solomon's wife had periods of insanity. 
She once killed all her ducks and turkeys, got on a horse astride 
with these behind her and started to Boston to sell them. In 1767 
Solomon was committed to jail on the charge of passing counter- 
feit dollars ; but two prominent Easton men went to Boston and 
represented that he was not as bright as might be and that the 
dollars were first passed off on him ; and they secured his release.

During much of this year he was on duty in and about Boston, 
being in camp at Hull in June and July, and on Castle Island 
afterwards. In December he took his company into service in

he married and not long afterwards died. His widow on May 20,

her maiden name. It is a matter of special interest to know that 
when she married the third time, her little seven-year-old daughter 
Betsy saw her take a bundle of receipts which had been given 
her by Capt. Randall, and throw them into the fire, saying that 
now that she had married again they would be of no use to her. 
They were receipts taken from soldiers in his company for food 
and clothing which he paid for from his own pocket. The bills 
thus contracted were never paid to him, and probably he never 
pressed for their payment.* Captain Matthew m. Dec. 16, 1784,

Joshua {Timothy 15), b. in Easton, April 28, 1771; d. Feb. 
13, 1853, in Wilton, Me. He was probably as able a man and as 
noble a character as the Robert Randall line ever produced. He 
became interested in Methodism quite early and decided to devote 
himself to the ministry. In 1796 he removed from Easton to 
Sutton and in 1799 he went to Dixfield, Me., taking with him his 
wife and four children. He settled in what is now Wilton, going 
ten miles from the settlement in Dixfield through an unbroken wild- 
erness by marked trees, carrying his youngest child, Eseck, in his 
arms. He began the work of the itinerant ministry, was " ad- 
mitted on trial " to the New England Methodist Conference in 
1808, ordained deacon in 1810 and elder in 1811. He preached 
by appointment in various towns in Maine and afterwards in 
Vermont. 

Joshua Randall believed it to be everyone's serious duty to test 
for himself by Scripture and reason the traditional opinions he 
inherited. He therefore entered into a careful and thorough ex- 
amination of the doctrines of Methodism ; and as a result of this 
study he came to a view of the Atonement which seemed to relieve 
it from objections growing out of man's sense of justice and 
goodness. This view he finally published in a sermon on " The 
Universality of the Atonement." He maintained that Christ 
made a full and complete atonement for Adam's transgression, so 
that Adam's sin and guilt could no longer be imputed to his pos- 
terity, and so that thenceforth all men were born not under a 
curse, as had been commonly taught, but in a justified state, and 



FIFTH GENERATION 51 

that they remained justified until they had themselves sinned; 
that therefore infants were saved, as they could not consistently 
be under the old theory ; that the atonement was not made for 
the actual transgressions of men under the new covenant of the 
gospel, but that " every man is to stand or fall by his own per- 
sonal obedience or disobedience," being under a covenant of grace 
which freely pardons upon sincere repentance. 

This sermon caused him to be suspected of heresy, and in 1822 
the Methodist Conference appointed a committee to examine him. 
Their report was unfavorable to him and the Council decided that 
he " might be borne with " if he would " not disseminate said doc- 
trine in public or private ; but otherwise that he should be sus- 
pended from all official service in the church until the next Annual 
Conference." " Brother Randall refusing to so engage, is sus- 
pended," etc. In 1824 his case came up for definite action and he 
was " left without an appointment until he complies with the order 
of the Conference." He then appealed to the General Conference. 
It met in Pittsburg, Ohio ; and Mr. Randall mounted his spirited 
three-year colt and actually traveled on horseback from Maine to 
Ohio in the hope of vindicating his favorite doctrine from the 
charge of heresy. This action speaks well for the strength, reso- 
lution and faith of this noble son of Easton. The General Confer- 
ence, unwilling to expel so earnest, able, and consecrated a 
preacher, evaded responsibility by remanding him back to the New 
England Conference. This was, however, equivalent to condemna- 
tion, since the latter Conference had voted to leave him without 
appointment until he renounced his views ; which, of course, he 
would never do until they were proven false. So he had to pay 
the penalty of his originality and independence and was dropped 
from the ministry in the religious communion he devotedly loved. 

But Joshua Randall did not refrain from preaching as oppor- 
tunity occurred. In 1828 he applied to the Free Will Baptist 
body for admission to their ranks as a preacher, and he was ad- 
mitted to their fellowship, remaining with them about seven years. 
About this time the seventh General Conference of Free Will 
Baptist churches published a treatise on their faith. It was 
characteristic of Mr. Randall that he should immediately subject 
this treatise to a thorough examination, the result of which showed 
him that he was not in harmony with the doctrine of the atonement 
therein stated. Unwilling to compromise his associates, or to be 
himself placed in a false position, he frankly stated his disagree- 



52 DESCENDANTS OF ROBERT RANDALL, 

ment, and manfully withdrew from the Free Will Baptist Church 
in Wilton, and from the denomination itself, his dismissal from 
the Wilton church bearing date of Nov. 11, 1835, highly recom- 
mending him to any church to which he might apply. But he was 
now sixty-four years old, and although he lived nearly twenty 
years longer, he did not feel like continuing in the active ministry, 
especially as he found no church fully sympathizing with his 
views. 

The ability, character, and career of Rev. Joshua Randall 
shed lustre upon the Randall name. He was an original theo- 
logical thinker; a vigorous and telling preacher, and a hard and 
successful worker in the organization of new societies, riding far 
and near and preaching day and night. He had an astonishing 
memory, quoting whole chapters of the Bible at once, and, what is 
more remarkable, being able to give chapter and verse of any 
passage repeated to him ; and he knew the Methodist hymn book 
almost by heart. He was social and companionable, and his 
house was a home where ministers of all denominations were wel- 
come, Orthodox and Universalists sometimes meeting together 
there. His children, as their record proves, seemed to inherit his 
exceptional ability and character. Five of his sons taught school, 
two were college graduates and became successful lawyers, and 
all were men of influence and worth. His independence and liber- 
alism found further development in these sons, some of whom be- 
came pronounced supporters of what is called Liberal Theology, 
one of whom, Isaac, was a leading member in the Unitarian 
Church of Dixfield, Me. 

An incident relating to his first wife is worth telling here. She 
was the only child of Capt. George and Sarah (Stokes) Robbins. 
The captain left for a sea voyage soon after his marriage to 
Sarah, and his wife died at the birth of the daughter Elizabeth. 
She lived with her grandfather, Isaac Stokes. The captain re- 
mained away for twelve years ! When he came to Easton to see 
Tris daughter for the first time, as he passed the window of Mr. 
Stokes' house, she happened to be looking out of it, and he recog- 
nized her at once from her resemblance to her mother. Joshua

Ephraim (Hopestill 17), b. in Easton, Nov. 29, 1785; d. Dec. 
16, 1871. He graduated at Brown University in the class of 1812, 
and was ordained a minister at New Bedford Oct. 26, 1814. This 
was at a time when lines were being drawn in the Congregational 
churches between the conservative and progressive parties, and in 
the church that had called Mr. Randall, the conservatives opposed 
his ordination because " he did not in the opinion of the Church 
speak the things that become sound doctrine." He was ordained 
notwithstanding this minority protest. After preaching two 
years he resigned his position and took up the business of store- 
keeping in New Bedford and, being an excellent singer, he sang 
in the choir of the church of which he had been the minister. He 
did not make a success of his storekeeping, and he returned to 
Easton, where, in a little store on the Turnpike, he sold drugs 
and various small articles. 

He returned to the ministry again, preaching for a time in 
Stoughton, and on Oct. '3, 1826, he settled at Saugus, Mss., but 
was dismissed from there Aug. 7, 1827. On April 30, 1829, he 
was settled in Westford, but his connection with this church closed 
in two years. His abilities were excellent, but for some reason 
his ministerial settlements did not last anywhere over two years. 
He preached for a while after this in Dorchester, Mass. ; but about 
1836 he gave up regular preaching, although he officiated occa- 
sionally as opportunity occurred. He taught school in North 
Easton village for some time. The latter years of his life were

which show her possessed of a real poetic talent. He is 
permitted to publish the following from her pen: 

THE NAUTILUS 

Only a shell, but the sea's low song 
Through its winding transepts sounds along, 
The dashing billow, the sighing surge, 
The quiet ripple and solemn dirge, 
Forever lie in the roseate cell 
Of this untenanted ocean shell. 

How was it built? What ages have past 
Since it was formed and on shore was cast! 
What patient skill in each folding wrought, 
To shape this beautiful ocean thought! 
Men die, and their forms to earth return, 
While this molecule leaves a lasting urn.

A simple thing! Yet I linger long 
Scanning its beauty, listing its song; 
And I think what power with ceaseless skill 
Creates all things with his mighty will, 
And leaves a song, the waves endeavor, 
Within the shell, singing forever.

He was a hard and cruel man and most abusive to his 
wife, whom he forced to work like a common laborer on 
the farm, rewarding her with kicks and blows. Exasper- 
ated by his cruelty she engaged two rough characters from 
Haverhill to put him out of the way. They, came to the 
house, forcing a quarrel, and then beat him to death, tak- 
ing the body to the barn to give the appearance of his 
having been robbed and killed. They were, however, con- 
victed and sentenced, one to 20 years in the State prison, 
the other to 7, and Mrs. Reed to 5 years. At the expira- 
tion of her term she returned to Salem and did housework. 
She died Jan. 17, 1902. Mr. Reed was a veteran of the

Ziba (Ephraim 19), b. in Easton, July 11, 1760; d. March 23, 
1835. He bought in 1790 eleven acres on the north side of Can- 
ton Street, North Easton, built a house and lived there until he 
died. He was a farmer, but from 1802 to 1815 managed a saw- 
mill, of which he was a half-owner, at the so-called Picker Place. 
He was a Revolutionary soldier, enlisting in 1777 at the age of 
seventeen years in Capt. Ebenezer Dean's company of Col. Car- 
penter's regiment, for Rhode Island service; also in 1778 for six 
weeks in Capt. Ichabod Leonard's company of the same regiment ; 
and he marched, in 1780, in Capt. Seth Pratt's company of Col. 
James Williams' regiment in the " Tiverton Alarm," whence, after 
six or eight days, they returned, covered with dust, but not with 
glory, having encountered no Redcoats. His remains after his 
death were buried in the Ferguson Cemetery at the Foot of Picker 
Lane. Strong and handsome slate gravestones were placed over 
the graves of himself and two wives, but mean scoundrels with an 
infernal vandalism impossible to understand, have done their worst 
to smash these stones into fragments, as well as the gravestones of 
the Ferguson family. The writer of this genealogy did his best 
in 1886 to collect these fragments and decipher the inscriptions 
upon them.* Ziba Randall had one hobby which has been of 
great service to the present writer, viz., that of keeping a record 
of all deaths that came under his notice, mainly those of Easton, 
Stoughton, and Sharon. There are over 850 names and dates in 
this record, ranging from 1792 to 1835, a copy of this list being 
in the hands of the writer. He m. 1st, Sept. 16, 1784, Mary Gay,

a taste for public business, with a good deal of which he was 
entrusted. He was town clerk eighteen years in succession, and 
held most of the other offices in the gift of the town. In his later

Zephaniah (Ephraim 19), b. in Easton, Sept. 24, 1783; d. Jan. 
5, 1855 ; was one of Easton's eccentric characters. He was a prac- 



DO DESCENDANTS OF ROBERT RANDALL 

tieing physician. What training he had for his profession does 
not appear. About 1814 he built the house now standing at the 
intersection of Main and Canton streets in North Easton. If 
called at night for some medical service he would be found lying 
upon a buffalo robe on the floor, his feet towards the fire, and 
dressed as in the daytime. He was an old-time doctor, who be- 
lieved in strong medicines administered copiously. One soon got 
used to the s^uff that he sprinkled about as he freely regaled him- 
self. But it was as well for the patient under his care not to 
watch him as he prepared the pills to be taken, and rolled them 
under his snuffy hands up and down his right pantaloon's leg, 
which had been worn smooth and shiny by this practice. An eye- 
witness informed the writer that he once saw him moisten with his 
saliva the brown bread and drug which he was making into a pill 
in the hollow of his hand ; and he chewed tobacco. 

Unfortunately, Dr. Randall took something stronger than snuff, 
and a good deal of it, too. In this he found a meet companion 
in his second wife. His first wife was an excellent woman and, 
had she lived, might have made a different man of him. Many 
a man owes his character and success largely to a good wife ; and 
many have been undone by a bad one. His second wife was nearly 
thirty years his junior, but was older than he in intemperate 
depravity. A sorry couple they looked as they drove about — he, 
full, but self-controlled; she, maudlin, and redolent not only 
of rum, but of essence of peppermint, laudanum, and especially 
of ether, which the doctor could not keep away from her. This 
bad habit and his filthy ways did not, however, prevent his hav- 
ing a good practice. People often tolerate in a physician irregu- 
larities that would ruin the reputation of any one else. They are 
only " eccentricities " which some persons think add a picquancy 
and interest to a doctor. But if any man ought to be pure and 
good, it is the physician who often comes nearer the real heart of 
persons and of homes than even the minister, and who has a fine 
opportunity of becoming a helper, not only to the body, but to 
the spirit, in noble and Christian ways, in those pathetic scenes 
of sickness and sorrow where his duty often calls him.* Dr. 
Randall m. April 22, 1819, Betsy Bullard, of Sharon, b. 1789 ; d.

Oliver (John 20), b. in Easton, Aug. 2, 1761; d. in Bangor, 
Me., Sept. 24, 1846. He lived first in Easton, then in Leeds, 
Me., and later in Bangor. In 1778 he was a soldier in Capt. 
Joseph Cole's company of Col. John Jacob's regiment, and saw 
hard service and desperate fighting in Rhode Island. On the 17th 
of July, 1780, he enlisted in the Continental Army for six months 
and saw difficult service.* It was on account of his being a 
Revolutionary soldier that he finally became a pensioner, receiv- 
ing a pension of fourteen dollars a month. After the war he 
moved to the town of Leeds, Me., perhaps receiving a grant of 
land as many soldiers did. He was a farmer there, marrying and 
having a large family of children. He left Leeds just after 1800 
and went to Bangor, Me., where several of his later children were 
born. When the war of 1812 broke out the old martial spirit 
aroused in him and, although about fifty-four years old, he en- 
listed, and in some action lost an arm. It was probably for that 
reason and because he was a Revolutionary veteran, that he was 
appointed as toll-gatherer of the Kenduskeag bridge before it 
was made free. He was also made the town sexton of Bangor 
for 1817 and 1818. His wife was Sarah Norcross, b. 1766; d. 
Dec. 28, 1826. Children :

1864, at Madison, Ohio. He left Easton in 1815, and went to 
what is now Madison. There in the summer he cleared land, the 
first trees being felled where the Madison House now stands. He 
went back to Easton and in the spring of 1816 he started for 
Ohio again in a covered wagon with an ox team, having his wife 
and three children with him, Peleg, the oldest, five years old, Sally 
two years old, and Milo only about three months old. They 
had a journey of ninety days, and, on arriving, located at what 
is now known as Madison Gore. There he cleared the land, 
planted and reared his crops, and, as his obituary reads, " Lived 
a life of usefulness, honored by all who knew him, and dying at a

ticed many of her sons to Maine, Vermont, western Massachu-

which he had great success, often winning a prize in ex- 
hibitions in Boston. Macy Jr. was a very positive charac- 
ter, a radical in religion; in politics a Democrat; indepen- 
dent, disputatious, ready to cross swords in argument with 
anyone. A marked peculiarity of his was his antiquarian 
instinct, his interest in local history and genealogy. He 
carefully preserved his father's records, and his tenacious 
memory enabled him to render valuable assistance to the 
compiler of this Randall history, who here places on record 
his grateful appreciation of Mr. Randall's services in 
this work,

herself, doing much of the outdoor work upon it herself, 
planting, hoeing and harvesting, taking care of her cows, 
looking after fruit trees and vines, and cultivating her 
flower garden. It deserves distinct notice that at the age 
of 82 years she shingled and painted her house without 
assistance. She was never idle and when she could not 
work out of doors she engaged in sewing, making quilts 
and doing fancy needle work for her grandchildren, of 
whom before her death she had twenty. She frequently 
visited her friends in neighboring towns, and once a year 
unattended, visited friends in New Hampshire.

deathbed she requested that her grandfather's (Deacon Phillips') 
Bible should be placed under her head in her coffin. This was 
done and she was buried in the Washington Street (Unionville) 
Cemetery. Years afterwards it became desirable that the Phillips' 
family record should be made known, and permission was obtained 
of the selectmen to open the grave to examine the record. The 
grave was opened and the Bible taken out, not seriously decayed.

* The Boston Sunday Olobe of July 11, 1909, has the following remarkable 
account: 

" Hallowell, Me., July 19. — George F. Randall, who drives one of the public 
carriages, has just undergone an operation in one of the Boston hospitals 
which revealed a singular malady. He was in poor health for more than a 
year and the trouble seemed to baffle the skill of every physician to whom he 
went, until at last he was advised to go to Boston. 

"The operation revealed the fact that Mr. Randall had three kidneys, to 
one of which was attached a large tumor. The diseased kidney was removed, 
the operation was successful and the patient expects to reach home next week. 
A singular condition is that Mr. Randall was one of twin brothers and the 
brother who died when young had but one kidney." 

The compiler of this History has, however, learned that this " one kidney " 
statement is only a conjecture.

They were in the Seventh Regiment, which was sworn into service 
June 15, 1861. This regiment saw much hard and dangerous 
service, especially in 1864, being then in the battles of the Wilder- 
ness, Spottsylvania, North Anna River, Cold Harbor, etc. Nathan 
Randall was discharged March 17, 1864, but at once re-enlisted 
for Philadelphia, Pa. He had served his country for three years 
in difficult and perilous service. He was wounded at last and his 
hurrying home to his young wife from the hospital instead of 
reporting at headquarters occasioned the charge of desertion — 
a grave injustice to a soldier who had faithfully served his coun- 
try for several years. He lived after the war in Providence, R. I.,
