JONAS RANDALL AND HIS DESCENDANTS

by

David Randall

Mary Knower Randall

 

 

Generation One

1. JONAS RANDALL, born about 1778 [in Roxbury, Massachusetts]; died January 16, 1833 in Roxbury. He married Mary Knower November 24, 1805 in Roxbury.

Mary Knower, born about 1787 in Roxbury, Mass.; died July 14, 1855 in New York, N.Y.; buried July 16, 1855, Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn, N.Y.: Lot 5366, Section 76. She was the daughter of Benjamin Knower and Elizabeth Weld.

Jonas Randall and Mary Knower “owned the Baptismal covenant” and were baptized on June 15, 1806, at the First Church of Roxbury, the same day as their infant, first-born son William Hannaford Randall was baptized. William Hannaford Randall was born May 8, 1806, about five and a half months after their marriage. In that year, a deed of Benjamin Knower lists Jonas Randall as a soldier (perhaps a misreading of saddler); in 1807 and 1825 he is listed as a saddler. That same deed transferred from Benjamin Knower to all his children the land in Roxbury that originally belonged to his wife Elizabeth Weld, but provided for a life interest -- which, since he died the same year, meant that his children became full co-owners. In 1807 Jonas signed a deed selling the Randall portion of the Knower land to his brother-in-law Caleb Dickerman for $80, but since Jonas and Mary are co-owners of the land in later deeds, the deed must have somehow been cancelled or paid back. Mary Randall was baptized as a Baptist in the summer of 1820. She was an original member of the Dudley Street Baptist Church in March 1821; was dismissed in 1824 (sent to another Baptist Church, presumably because she and Jonas Randall had moved from Roxbury); received back into the Dudley Street Baptist Church by cause of letter in May 1826 (presumably because she and Jonas Randall had returned to Roxbury); and dismissed again in May 1833 (presumably she moved to New York City at this point, to be with her children after the death of her husband). Jonas Randall seems never to have joined the Baptist Church; Mary Randall deserves the credit for making the Randalls (in William Hannaford Randall’s line anyway) Baptists for several generations.

In 1825, the Knowers collectively, via the intermediation of one Ebenezer Fox, separated out three pieces of land (perhaps the entirety?) from the Knower holdings, gave them individually to the three Knower sisters Mary Randall, Hannah Watson, and Sarah Dickerman, and put them in trust/mortgage to their brother, Benjamin Knower of Albany. Mary and Sarah shared a house on the property. In 1862, John Knower, executor of Benjamin Knower of Albany, writes John Randall, administrator of Mary’s estate, that the mortgage has been fully repaid. Jonas died in 1833; Mary seems to have moved to New York City by 1834 to live with her children. A record in the possession of Emily Randall states the following: “Rec'd New York 1 August 1834 from Mrs Mary Randall Eighty-seven 50 dollars in full one quarter rent, due this day for house at No. 184 Franklin Street. For the New York Life Insurance & Trust Co / Received etc / Robert Giles Jr.” In 1841 (perhaps significantly, around the time Benjamin Knower of Albany died) Mary, resident in New York City, first cancelled her trust with Ebenezer Fox, then mortgaged (re-mortgaged?) her land to the Norfolk Mutual Fire Insurance Company. This mortgage was acknowledged as fully repaid in 1858.

After Mary died in 1855, her property seems to have been shared equally among her four children; that is the implication of a power of attorney signed in 1856 and filed in 1861, where William Hannaford Randall, Mary McIntire Randall Field, Ann Knower Randall Knower, and their spouses give John Randall power to sell their portions of the property. Instead, Elisha Dorr Knower, husband of Ann, seems to have ended up buying up the various Roxbury land interests. In 1859 one Benjamin Dickerman, perhaps Sally’s son, sells what seems to be Sally’s adjoining property to Elisha Dorr Knower. In 1862 one Lucius Sargent sells adjoining land (formerly the Watsons?) to Elisha. Finally, in 1862 and 1863, John, Mary and Charles Field, and the widow and children of William Hannaford Randall (Elizabeth Colburn Randall, Elisha Dorr Knower Randall, John Henry Randall, and Mary Elizabeth Randall Bergmann) sell to Elisha all their portions of Mary’s land.

There is absolutely no record of the identity of the parents of Jonas Randall; however, Abraham Randall is the only Randall head-of-household listed in the 1790 and 1800 censuses, and it is plausible that he and Zibiah Blackman were Jonas’ parents. The Vital Records of Roxbury Massachusetts list one Abraham Randall, son of Abraham, born March 1, 1778 ( Vital Records of Roxbury Massachusetts to the end of the year 1849, Volume I.-Births (Salem, 1925), p. 288); this Abraham never appears in the vital records again, and the birth-date allows the possibility that he went by the name Jonas Randall as an adult. Francis Ballard Randall has sometimes recalled mention of an Abraham Randall in the family tree who took part in the Boston Tea Party -- “Tea-Thrower Randall” -- but other times he remembers “Tea-Thrower Knower.” Abraham was a soldier in the American Revolution -- see National Archives File # S14248; Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors of the Revolutionary War (Boston, 1904), p. 941; “Deaths,” Columbian Centinel, April 16, 1834. Should Jonas prove to be the child of Abraham and Zibiah, more information about them and their families can be found in Vital Records of Roxbury Massachusetts to the end of the year 1849, Volume II.-Marriages and Deaths (Salem, 1926), p. 620; A Report of the Record Commissioners of the City of Boston containing Dorchester Births, Marriages, and Deaths to the end of 1825 (Boston, 1890), pp. 155, 223, 234; Watertown Records … The Second Book of Births Marriages and Deaths from 1738 to 1822 (Boston), p. 136; Genealogies of the Families and Descendants of the Early Settlers of Watertown (Boston, 1860), pp. 409-10, 912; J. Crawford Hartman, “Joseph Blanchard of Boston, Mass., and some of his descendants,” NEHGR (April 1939), pp. 162-68, 230-33; Genealogy of the Descendants of Thomas Gleason (Haverhill, 1909), pp. 19-2029-30, 45-46, 74. Abraham and Zibiah are both buried in the Jamaica Plain Burying Ground, with their son Joseph Randall, who died October 7, 1793, aged 14 months. NEHGR Vol. 10 (January 1856), p. 21.

Children of William Hannaford Randall and Elizabeth Colburn are:

i. William Hannaford Randall, Jr., born December 19, 1829 [in Roxbury, Massachusetts or New York, N.Y.], died October 16, 1851 in St. Paul, Minn.

Williams writes in A History of the City of Saint Paul: “Among those who settled in Saint Paul this year [1846], were WM. H. RANDALL and WILLIAM RANDALL, JR. …. William Randall, Jr., was the oldest son of Wm. H. Randall. He was born at Roxbury, Massachusetts, December 19, 1829, and came to Saint Paul with his father. He was an artist of no common ability, and, as a caricaturist was very skillful. Some political caricatures he made during the early days of the Territory, are spoken of as being brim full of sarcasm. He died in October 1851, aged 22 years--an untimely end, cutting short, in the very flower of life, a career of promise and hope.” Williams also writes in A History of Saint Paul that: “Ex-Gov. MARSHALL, in his address before the Old Settlers of Hennepin county, February 22, 1871, says, regarding the contest for the seat of government: ‘The original act made Saint Paul the temporary Capital, but provided that the Legislaure might determine the permanent Capital. A bill was introduced by the Saint Paul delgation to fix the permanent there. I opposed it, endeavoring to have Saint Anthony made the seat of government. We succeeded in defeating the bill which sought to make Saint Paul the permanent Capital, but we could not get through the bill fixing it at Saint Anthony. So the question remained open in regard to the permanent Capital until the next session, in 1851, when a compromise was effected, by which the Capital was to be at Saint Paul, the State University at Saint Anthony, and the Penitentiary at Stillwater. At that early day, as well as now, caricatures and burlesques were in vogue. Young WM. RANDALL, of Saint Paul, now deceased, who had some talent in the graphic line, drew a picture of the efforts at Capital-removal. It was a building on wheels, with ropes attached, at which I was pictured tugging, while BRUNSON, JACKSON, and the other Saint Paul members were holding and checking the wheels to prevent my moving it, with humorous and appropriate speeches proceeding from the mouths of the parties to the contest. The caricature was quite a good one, and served to amuse the people of Saint Paul for some days.’”

6 ii. John Henry C. Randall, born November 20, 1831 in Roxbury, Mass., died March 11, 1916 in St. Paul, Minn., buried in Oakland Cemetery, St. Paul, Minnesota, Block 8, Lot 51.

iv. Ann Rebecca Randall, [born July 3, 1837 or August 22, 1837] in New York, N.Y.] died [November 8, 1837 or December 27, 1837] in New York, N.Y.]

According to a series of New York City directories, John Randall was a merchant from 1834-35 to at least 1858-59. He is listed as specializing in furs for much of this time period, sometimes hatters’ furs; in 1858-59 he is listed as an importer. His son Charles Knower Randall is also listed as a merchant at the same address in 1858-59. His place of business was at 176 or 178 Water St. for much of this time period. His residences included 403 Hudson St., 810 Greenwich St., 222 W. 14 St., 141 5th Ave., and 121 5th Ave.

Emily Randall writes that “John and his brother William Hannaford Randall went into the fur business together; John later formed other partnerships as William moved to Saint Paul in 1846.

Although John's descendants don't think he ever lived there, "Pig's Eye Notepad," a series of sketches of St. Paul's merchant founders, has a brief entry for John : RANDALL, JOHN - The brother of William Randall Sr., and participated with him in William Hartshorn's Company, which, by 1849 was listed in the Business Directory as John Randall & Company.

John went on several trips west -- in those days, west meant St. Louis and Cincinnati -- to purchase furs from trappers. We have a poignant exchange of letters between the couple in 1837; they miss each other desperately. She's coping with active toddlers; he's homesick and ready to give up his voyaging. To read the letters, click here. Sarah Ann Limberger is remembered as very beautiful, as proved by her portrait, painted at 27, and photos of her at 83. Her great-great granddaughter Ann Holland writes, "She was amiable, humorous and easygoing. Judging from her books, she was very well-read, and from her belongings, a woman of rich tastes.”

Children of John Randall and Sarah Ann Limberger are:

9 i. Charles Knower Randall, born September 19, 1834 in New York, N.Y., died November 10, 1897 in New York, N.Y., buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn, N.Y., Lot 19320, Section 149.

ii. John Randall, born September 2, 1836 in New York, N.Y., died about May 1838, buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn, N.Y.: Lot 19320, Section 149. Emily Randall writes that he was originally buried in the vault of St. Luke's Church, Hudson Street, New York City, and his remains later transferred to the Randall plot in Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn.

iii. Edward D. West Randall, born December 30, 1838 in New York, N.Y., died June 18, 1890 in Moorhead, Minn., buried June 25, 1890 in Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn, N.Y.: Lot 19320, Section 149. Emily Randall states that according to family tradition, he never married.

Elisha died “suddenly, of heart disease.”

Elisha Dorr Knower Randall’s service in the Civil War was as follows:

“Elisha D. K. Randall, Co. G, 6th Regiment Minnesota Infantry, was enrolled August 12, 1862 and discharged September 14, 1864 …. to enable him to accept promotion. From Enlistment to Discharge he held the rank of Private …. From September 14, 1864 to October 03, 1864 Elisha D. K.

Randall served in the Military as Senior 1st Lieutenant Battery A 1st Minnesota Heavy Artillery.” Sarah Randall wrote on July 19, 1918, seeing if she could get an Indian War Pension, that “my husband served in the Campaign against the Sioux in 1862 + 3.”

Newson writes in Pen Pictures of St. Paul, Minnesota, and Biographical Sketches of Old Settlers:

“E. D. K. RANDALL [ELISHA DORR] - Mr. Randall was born in New York city in 1839, and is a son of William Randall, one of the early and prominent settlers of ST.

ii. Mary Elizabeth Randall, born May 10, 1864 in St. Paul, Minn., died December 5, 1951 in St. Paul, buried Oakland Cemetery, St. Paul. She died single.

iii. George B. Randall, born November 11, 1866 in St. Paul, Minn., died July 2, 1924 in St. Paul, buried July 5, 1924 in Oakland Cemetery, St. Paul: Block 11, Lot 36. He died single. His death certificate states that he was a hotel porter.

28 iv. Edward C. Randall, born August 3, 1871 in Minnesota, died December 19, 1952 in Moose Lake, Carlton County, Minn., buried December 23, 1952, Oakland Cemetery, St. Paul.

v. Abram C. Randall, born about 1881, died 1884, buried 1884 in Oakland Cemetery, St. Paul, Minn.: Block 8, Lot 51. John Henry Randall and Elisha Dorr Knower Randall shared the same plot, so he could be the child of either family. However, there is no record of an Abram among the descendants of John (and two separate branches remembered John’s daughter Ruth, who also died in infancy), and it seems likely that Abram C. was named after Sarah Cavender Randall’s father, Abraham Cavender.

 

9. CHARLES KNOWER RANDALL, born September 19, 1834 in New York, N.Y.; died November 10, 1897 in New York, N.Y.; buried November 13, 1897 in Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn, N.Y.: Lot 19320, Section 149. He was the son of 3. John Randall and Sarah Ann Limberger. He married Helen Louise Whitlock September 15, 1857 in St. Peter's Church, Albany, N.Y.

Helen Louise Whitlock, born January 14, 1833; died December 30, 1912 in Goshen, Conn.; buried January 3, 1913 in Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn, N.Y.: Lot 19321, Section 149. She was the daughter of Robert Whitlock.

Emily Randall writes:

“Charles Knower Randall was a stockbroker and every census finds him comfortably well off. The family spent much of its time at the resort town of Richland Springs, N.Y., and the Jersey shore. Widowed Sara Ann Randall and her unmarried daughter Cornelia Marcy Randall are found making their home with Charles in the 1880 U.S. Census. A son, Charles Knower Randall Jr., and a daughter, Sarah Louise, both died in infancy. The only surviving child of the marriage, Helen Louise Randall, called "Lulu," was to judge from family letters a much-loved only child. Lulu married widower Homer Ramsdell Moore on January 21, 1892, in Manhattan. He was born December 20, 1846, in Newburgh, N.Y., and died February 22, 1899. The couple had a child, Helen Louise Moore. Widowed Lulu evidently later married W.K. Major Jr.

Sadly, this family's story is best traced through obituaries. Helen Louise Moore, of whom two childhood photographs survive, married Lawrence Kip Bonner of the Bonner publishing family on May 15, 1924. According to a notice in the New York Times, her cousin, the Rev. J. Herman Randall performed the marriage. Bonner, a veteran of the Great War suffering from lingering pain and depression, committed suicide at his mother's home on January 29, 1927, according to a story in the New York Times. In turn, Helen Louise Bonner plunged to her death in an apparent suicide on January 9, 1940, as reported in the New York Times the following day. According to the story, Mrs. Bonner was making her home with her aged mother, Helen Louise Major, at 100 W. 55 St. at the time of her death. Our last glimpses of Helen Louise Major come in letters from Ernesto G. Fabbri to Emily Holland in 1942: ‘Jeannie Foster [daughter of Agnes Adelaide Randall, Charles Randall's sister, and Addison Hall, her second husband] wrote me a word the day poor Lulu died. I say "poor Lulu" as I think her life these last years were as unhappy as a life can be. I occasionally heard from Jeannie and the impression I received was that Lulu was living in a very restricted way in the hotel and demanded a good deal from Jeannie and Emily and they were rather bored with it. Living in a small country hotel, unwanted by your only relatives made a rather grim and tragic picture. One really can't but help be glad that Lulu is at peace, no one left, nothing to live for. She had had good moments in life but they seemed rather to embitter and not help her last years.’

Charles Knower Randall died at his residence, the Amidon, 83rd St. at Boulevard, in New York City, according to the New York Times of Nov. 13, 1897. His funeral was from All Angels Church on November 13.”

> Ernesto Giuseppe Fabbri, born March 17, 1830 in Florence, Italy; died July 3, 1883 in Lake Mahopac, New York. He was the son of Giovanni Fabbri of Florence and Mary. He married 10. Sarah Ann Randall July 12, 1862 in New York, N.Y.

10. SARA ANN RANDALL, born July 10, 1841 in New York, N.Y.; died March 19, 1933 in Florence, Italy. She was the daughter of 3. John Randall and Sara Ann Limberger.

Henry Hall writes of Ernesto and his brother, Egisto:

“EGISTO PAOLO FABBRI, banker, born Dec. 28, 1828, in Florence, Italy, died there, June 25, 1894. His father, Giovanni Fabbri, was a merchant of silk. His mother was Russian. Egisto Fabbri received a sound education in Italy and England and planned to be a surgeon. Upon the death of his father, however, he entered a shipping house in Livorno and when it failed went to Paris. In 1851, he came to the new world. In 1852, he returned to Italy, but came to America again in 1854. After a years search for employment, he became bookkeeper for John Randall & Co., shipping merchants, was admitted as a partner seven years later and so remained until 1867. Then, he founded the shipping house of & Chauncey, which enjoyed a prosperous career, finally becoming extinct in 1884. In 1875, Mr. Fabbri became a partner in Drexel, Morgan & Co. Ill health compelled his retirement Dec. 31, 1885. During his last nine years, he travelled extensively in Europe and purchased a beautiful estate in Florence, upon which he dwelt thereafter. For his services in behalf of Italian independence, King Victor Emanuel bestowed upon him the unusual right of regaining Italian citizenship at his own pleasure. In his amiable, courtly, personal address, his famous hospitality, and his musical accomplishment, he reflected his Italian birthright, and in his business career, revealed financial sagacity and executive ability. He was one of the founders of the Metropolitan Opera House in this city. He was married June 28, 1849, to Mary Kealey. Being without issue, in 1890, he adopted the children of his deceased brother Ernesto.

"ERNESTO GIUSEPPE FABBRI, merchant, born in Florence, Italy, March 17, 1830, died at Lake Mahopac, N.Y., July 3, 1883. He came to this city at the age of twenty-three, found employment as a clerk for John Randall & Co., subsequently became a partner, and then married a daughter of the senior partner. The firm was dissolved in 1861. Mr. Fabbri returned to Italy and in Genoa established the firm of Valerio & Fabbri, commission merchants. In 1865, he returned to this city and entered the commission house of Fabbri & Chauncey on South street, of which his brother Egisto P. Fabbri, was a partner. In 1876, Ernesto succeeded his brother as the head of the firm. He was a director of The Central & South American Telegraph Co., The Orient Mutual Insurance Co., and The United States Rolling Stock Co., and a member of the Chamber of Commerce and of The Maritime Association. Active in the Committee on Italian Schools, he befriended his poorer countrymen in so many ways, that the Italian government conferred upon him the honor of knighthood and the orders of the crown of Italy and Sts. Maurice and Lazarus. His marriage with Sara, daughter of John Randall, brought him eight children: Egisto P., Ernestine, Marie Pauline, Ernesto G., Alice, Nathalie, Cora, now deceased, and Alessandro. He was a member of the Protestant Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion.”

iii. Egisto Paolo Fabbri born October 16, 1866 in New York, N.Y.; died December 17, 1933, Florence, Italy. Artist, art collector and architect. Educated at St. Paul's School, Concord, N.H., he was 18 when he moved to Italy with his mother, uncle and aunt. He was interested in modern art and was a painter himself. He owned 16 Cezannes at one point, but sold them to buy the Palazzo Capponi, still standing in the Giardino Gherardesca, as a residence for his mother and sisters. Between 1896 and 1913 he lived and painted in Paris, and is rumored to have fathered a child with his favorite model. Shortly after that, he joined the rest of his family in Florence, making his home at Bagazzano, a 14th-century Medici hunting lodge, near Settignano. He made an extended visit to the United States during the years of the First World War, and during this time was involved in architectural design in New York City and Bar Harbor, Maine. In the mid 1920s, he experienced a deep conversion to the Roman Catholic faith. He designed, built and endowed a church, choir school and the Istituto San Gregorio, an industrial arts school, all in the impoverished mountain village of Serrevalle in the Casentino. Some years later, the Mantellate Sisters of Pistoia moved the operations of the school closer to Florence.

viii. Alessandro Fabbri born May 21, 1877, in New York, N.Y., died February 6, 1922 in Manhattan, New York, buried February 8, 1922 in Trinity Cemetery. According to his obituary in the New York Times:

“Alessandro Fabbri, who built the wireless station at Bar Harbor, Maine, through which most of the official communications between Washington and the battle fronts and the Peace Conference were exchanged, died after an illness of three days from pneumonia early yesterday morning at his home, 7 East Ninety-fifth Street. Mr. Fabbri, who was a son of Ernesto G. Fabbri, a member of J. P. Morgan & Co., offered his radio station gratis to the United States Government early in the war. The offer was declined, but the plant was commandeered, and Mr. Fabbri, with the rank of a Lieutenant in the navy, was placed in command. His wireless station was picked by a commission of engineers and radio experts sent to this country by the Allies as the best station for their purposes on the Atlantic seaboard. After the Government had taken over the plant it paid Mr. Fabbri the amount of his estimated expenditures on it.

Mr. Fabbri, who achieved distinction as a naturalist, hunter, yachtsman, explorer and inventor, died as the result of a cold he contracted a week ago when he went duck hunting on Great South Bay with a party from the South Side Shooting Club, of which he was a member. He complained of having a chill when he returned home, but felt sufficiently recovered next day to venture out again. He contracted another chill and then developed pneumonia.

He perfected a moving picture machine with which it was possible to take pictures of microscopic organisms showing their development. This he worked out in connection with the experimental work of Dr. Alexis Carrel of the Rockefeller Institute.

Mr. Fabbri was born in this city 44 years ago. He was educated in Westminster School, Simsbury, Conn., and subsequently under private tutors abroad. When he began to make his research investigations he equipped himself with a laboratory which he kept expanding up to the time of his illness. Mr. Fabbri is survived by two brothers, Ernesto G. and Egisto Fabbri, all of whom made their home together. He is also survived by his mother, who lives in Florence, and four sisters, living abroad.”

Society gossip linked him romantically with the first wife of his brother, Ernesto. He died in 1922.

Generation Four

20. WILLIAM H. RANDALL, born April 13, 1853 in New York, N.Y.; died January 19, 1920 in Ripley, Chautauqua County, N.Y., buried January 22, 1920 in Albany Rural Cemetery, Menands, N.Y.: Lot 80, Section 109. He was the son of 6. John Henry C. Randall and Emma Louisa Boggs. He married Celoskia E. Taylor about 1880-81. Celoskia E. Taylor, born September 10, 1862 in Lake George, N.Y.; died June 13, 1942 in Huguenot, Staten Island, N.Y.; buried June 15, 1942 in Albany Rural Cemetery, Menands, N.Y.: Lot 80, Section 109. She was the daughter of William Taylor and Mary Truesdall.

Emma Louisa Boggs, the third daughter of William G. Boggs, a minister and a newspaper editor, was born between September 4, 1835 and September 3, 1836. A schoolfriend of Mary Elizabeth Randall, at the age of fifteen or sixteen, she married John Henry Randall on December 11, 1851, Norfolk Baptist Church, presumably in New York, N.Y. Their son William H. Randall was born April 13, 1853 in New York, N.Y. As recounted by Grace Randall Lyman, she became an alcoholic and an adulteress; a second child of hers (died 1862, age 14 months) may or may not have been the child of John Henry Randall. He initiated divorce proceedings against her on September 3, 1864 on the grounds “that for and during the seven years preceding this date said defendant has been and now is an habitual drunkard and that by reason of such drunkenness of said defendant the domestic peace and happiness of said plaintiff have been entirely destroyed and the said defendant wholly incapacitated for performing the duties of a wife or mother. That the issue of said marriage is one child named William H. Randall who is now living and aged eleven years. That by said habitual drunkenness the said defendant has voluntarily become and is utterly unfit longer to continue the wife of said plaintiff and is an unsuitable person to have the care custory or nurture of said William H. the child aforesaid and that by reason of said drunkenness this plaintiff and said defendant cannot live together in peace and happiness and that their welfare requires a permanent separation and divorce from the bonds of matrimony.” The suit was uncontested; and they were divorced February 28, 1865, St. Paul, Minn.; John Henry Randall retained custody of William H. Randall. According to Grace Randall Lyman, Emma Randall died some years later in Chicago, “when I was several years old,” therefore, probably in the mid-1870s.

William Henry Randall was a Baptist minister. In 1880 he was living Bird Island, Renville, Minnesota. He was received into the congregation of the Bolton Baptist Church (Bolton, Warren County, New York) April 27, 1878, was presiding there as minister on June 16, 1878. He married Celoskia E. Taylor between the time of the 1880 Census (when she is resident with her parents, William and Mary Taylor, in Bolton, N.Y.) and September 1881, when their first child was born. He became pastor of the Leesville Baptist Church, Leesville, N.Y., on May 1, 1885, and was still serving as pastor there on August 6, 1885. They seem to have had a child who died in infancy, apparently in 1886. In 1900 he and his family were living in Saratoga, N.Y. In 1910 he and his family were living in Parishville, St. Lawrence County, New York. In both 1915 and 1916 he was resident in Andover, Allegany County, New York. In 1920 they were living at Ripley, Chautauqua County, New York, where he was the pastor of the Frewsburgh Baptist Church.

Children of William H. Randall and Celoskia E. Taylor are:

i. William Henry Randall, Jr., born September 24, 1881 in Middle Grove, [Saratoga County,] New York, died December 14, 1931 in Richmond, Staten Island, New York, N.Y., buried December 16, 1931 in Albany Rural Cemetery, Menands, New York: Lot 80, Section 109. He married Emily about 1925, born about 1890 in New Jersey; they were living in Richmond, Staten Island, N.Y. in the 1930 U.S. Census with his mother, Celoskia, and his sister Mae. “William H. Randall, a teacher at Public School 13, at Rosebank, [Staten Island], for the last twenty years, died at his home, 1350 Huguenot Avenue, Huguenot Park, on Monday night after a brief illness. He was 51 years old. Mr. Randall was born in Albany and was a graduate of the New York State Normal College. He is survived by his widow, mother, and four sisters.”

He graduated from Schuylerville High School in 1900; in 1915 he was living in Stapleton. He entered the New York State Normal College in Albany in September 1905 and graduated in the Classical Course from on June 25, 1907. He had taught one year and 18 weeks before entering the College, and possessed a high-school diploma. His mailing address on entrance was in Schuylerville, N.Y.; his religious preference was Baptist. In 1906, he was a member of the literary department of The Echo, the College’s student magazine. In spring 1907 he was a member of the review department. He was one of the committee members who organized the annual outing and basket luncheon to Electric Park, scheduled for Saturday June 1, 1907. ["Senior Notes", The Echo, May 1907, p. 229.] The Alumni Notes of The Echo for April 1908, p. 232, noted that William Randall of Saratoga had visited the school in March. The Alumni Notes, April 1908, p. 252, said that William J (sic) Randall Jr was principal at Saratoga. The Alumni Notes in the Alumni Quarterly for January 1928, p. 28, noted “William Randall '07, has many hours credit at N.Y.U. He is a school principal at Huguenot Park, N.Y.

ii. Mae E. Randall, born January 1883 in New York, died September 2, 1973, buried in Graceland Memorial Park, Kenilworth, N.J.: Lot 127C, Section Elm, Grave 4. She never married.

> George Pusey Lyman, born January 9, 1863 in Rock Island, Illinois, died January 1, 1948 in Northfield, Ill.; buried January 5, 1948 in Oakland Cemetery, St. Paul, Ramsey County, Minnesota: Block 68, Lot 15-16. He was the son of Charles P. Lyman and Louise Bricks. He married 19. Grace Oakes Randall December 10, 1896.

21. GRACE OAKES RANDALL, born October 20, 1867 in St. Paul, Ramsey County, Minnesota; died February 18, 1959 in Northfield, Cook County, Illinois; buried February 21, 1959, Oakland Cemetery, St. Paul, Ramsey County, Minnesota: Block 68, Lot 15-16. She was the daughter of 6. John Henry C. Randall and Sarah Arvila Oakes.

The Reverend John Herman Randall, Grace’s brother, officiated at their wedding. According to an unidentified newspaper obituary, “He was assistant freight manager of the Burlington [Railroad] when he retired. He moved to Chicago in 1939. He is survived by his wife Grace and a son Gordon R., both of Chicago.” Francis Ballard Randall writes that “She was raised in St. Paul, and married George Lyman. They had at least one child, Gordon Lyman, born 1897. They continued to live in the Middle West, until she was widowed, I believe by 1935, after which she moved to San Francisco, and died, I believe in the later 1940s. She made the long train trip East to visit her brother, my grandfather, at his lodge in Belgrade Lakes, Maine, some summer in the late 1930s, when my parents, brother and I were also there. When my father taught at Berkeley in the summer of 1941, we crossed the new Bay Bridge to visit her a few times in San Francisco. Grace Randall Lyman was thus the oldest Randall I was ever acquainted with. She was a friendly and pleasant old lady to us. She encouraged me to rummage in her file of National Geographic magazines, on the floor, which she could see I wanted to do, while she and my parents talked (in chairs). This was one of the reasons why I asked for, and received from my parents, a membership in the National Geographic Society for Christmas that year. (I still subscribe.) She was clearly on friendly terms with my grandfather and grandmother, though they rarely made the then long train trips to see each other. And as was normal then, they wrote each other rather than long-distance telephoning, which belonged to the future.”

Enno Henry Knoche writes:

“Henry Hulbert Randall married Martha Florence (Kit) Daimond at St. Paul, Minnesota on June 5, 1900. His brother, Reverend John Herman Randall, officiated. They had one daughter – Norma Jeannette Randall, who was to marry Enno August Knoche in 1923 and become the mother of three sons (Enno Henry, Charles Norman, and David Randall) …. Hulbert and Kit Randall resided in St. Paul. They were both avid golfers and bridge players. Hulbert worked for the railroad as an administrative clerk. His hobbies were jewelry collecting and fine sewing (tapestries, primarily). He was good at both. Kit was an expert at sewing – needlepoint, embroidery and clothing. Hulbert died of cancer in Pittsburgh. The year was 1931. Kit died suddenly in California six years later. After Hulbert’s death, Kit lived much of the time with her daughter Norma’s family in Pittsburgh.”

Francis Ballard Randall writes:

“He too was raised in St. Paul, and was said to have been urged by his mother (as my grandfather was) to go to college and divinity school, and to become a clergyman. He didn’t, but I’ve never heard what kind of a struggle that was. He made his career in the Northern Pacific Railroad, presumably facilitated by his father’s position there. He married, and they had a daughter, Norma Randall, who married a Mr. Knoche, and became the mother of three or four boys. He and his family at some point ceased to be close to my grandfather and grandmother, certainly after the latter moved East in 1906. But not alienated: the latter named their second son Robert Hulbert Randall when he was born in 1902. Uncle Hulbert, as my father called him, died about 1933. His wife refused to return to my grandfather a gold watch of his father’s, which had been ceded to him, although it was inscribed with the name, John H(enry) Randall, which my grandmother minded and commented on from time to time – which my mother thought was odd and out-of-character petty of her. From the 1930s to the present, I could never think of Uncle Hulbert without being reminded of the watch.” In 1916, Henry was “commercial agent of the Burlington [Railroad] in St. Paul.”

2) Mary Valentine Darragh, born October 23, 1890 in Clayton, Delaware; died January 26, 1934 in Palm Beach, Florida. She was the daughter of Robert H. Darragh. She died January 26, 1934 in Palm Beach, Florida. Mary Valentine Darrah Fabbri and her sister were co-founders of the firm of Darrah & Darrah, silversmiths.

3) Anne Unknown. The mysterious Anne is first mentioned in a letter from Countess Marie Ludolf to Emily Holland, dated September 24, 1939:

"Ernesto has been here as you know for three times now. He seems perfectly contented and not very anxious to leave. If all goes on at present time he does not leave until November. I know he is looking up sailings and says the October ones are too soon. If you want to write to him, I think you have plenty of time but you had better address your letter to 28 Via Gino Capponi for he may not be here. Afore then it will always get to him. Our new sister-in-law wears well, seems to fit in comfortably and Ernesto looks fit, serene and calm. I think he did very well to decide to make this "housekeeping" a settled and legal thing, to give it a legal setting. We are all quite quiet now in our minds as to his future. Anne is devoted to him and gives him a comfortable home such as he has been wanting for other times far from the madding crowd of his former life."

She is not named in his New York Times obituary:

“A funeral service for Ernesto G. Fabbri of New York, world traveler, linguist and former president of the Society of Italian Immigrants in New York, was held here today. His daughter, Mrs. Teresa Fabbri McMurtry of New York, attended the service. In failing health for several years, Mr. Fabbri came to California for his health in 1937 and had resided at fashionable Rancho Santa Fe, San Diego County. He died Thursday in the Scripps Memorial Hospital of a heart ailment. His age was 69. Mr. Fabbri inherited part of the estate of his uncle, Egisto Fabbri, a J. P. Morgan partner, who adopted him at the age of 6 after the death of his father. He leaves, besides Mrs. McMurtry, a sister, Countess Marie Ludolf of Florence, Italy. Mr. Fabbri was a son of the late Ernesto G. Fabbri, a member of the old New York firm of Fabbri and Chauncey, who married a daughter of John Randall of New York and Florence, Italy. The first wife of Mr. Fabbri was Alice Shepard, a daughter of the late Elliott F. Shepard and a granddaughter of the late William H. Vanderbilt. She obtained a Paris divorce in February 1923, and three months later Mr. Fabbri married Miss Mary Valentine Darrah of Overbrook, Pa., who died Jan. 26, 1934, in Palm Beach, Fla. The shock of her death proved immediately fatal to her sister, Mrs. Robert H. Miller, who lived in an adjoining house on Seminole Avenue. Mrs. McMurtry’s mother is the present Mrs. Shepard Fabbri of 7 East Ninety-fifth Street.”

Emily Randall writes:

“Ernesto was educated at the Westminster School, Simsbury, Conn., then emigrated to Italy with his family. As required by Italian law, he performed his compulsory military service in Italy before his marriage. At the outbreak of the Great War, Ernesto sucessfully evaded service in the Italian Army but was later pardoned by the king. Nevertheless, we have a photo of him in a fine U.S. Army uniform. He later shuttled between his homes in Florence and Bar Harbor, Maine. After 1937 his residence was La Calana, at Rancho Sante Fe, California. He was a traveler and a linguist, and was president of the Society of Italian Immigrants in New York. His first wife, Edith Shepard, was a daughter of Elliott P. Shepard and a granddaughter of 'Commodore' William H. Vanderbilt. Egisto Fabbri designed palatial residences for her in New York City and Bar Harbor. Edith, then living in Paris, divorced Ernesto in 1923; he married again soon after. Mary Valentine Darragh was said in New York Times announcement of her marriage to be of Overbrook, Pa., and Bar Harbor.

Edward deConingh writes that,

“Turning to Ogden Field, I confirm he was the son of Caroline Althans, and assume that Howard Mortimer Field is correct as his father. The reason I say that is that it is understood through Caroline that the father deserted the family when the children were quite young, leaving the mother to raise them alone …. to help support herself Caroline established a small school for the early grades in New York City, and one of the teachers was Lucille McGee, a recent graduate of Florida State. That’s how she came into Ogden’s life. Ogden worked for Dun & Bradstreet in New York, and was transferred to Indianapolis in the early ‘40s.

Flora was named after her grandmother Emma Louisa Boggs’ sister, Flora Boggs, who “was married & lived in Saratoga for years, where he [Flora’s father, William Henry Randall] saw and visited her frequently.” Flora graduated from Schuylerville High School in 1903; in 1915 she was living in Albany. She entered the New York State Normal College in Albany in September 1905 and graduated in the English Course in 1907. She had taught for two years before entering college. Her mailing address on entrance was in Schuylerville, Saratoga County, New York; her religious preference was Baptist.In 1907, she was a member of the literary department of The Echo, the college’s student magazine. Charles Sullivan was a lawyer. Her father, the minister William Henry Randall, performed her marriage ceremony. Duchy Weale, the step-daughter of Bruce Randall Sullivan, writes that “The entire family went up to Lake George a lot. Bruce Randall Sullivan a wonderful man, his father was named Charles Ball Sullivan originally. Charles was a major in Sanskrit, and became a lawyer. A man in Albany named Amesworth took him into firm. Bruce ended up in the firm after a rakish youth. Flora and her sisters were kind of wild in 1920s, flapperish, bathtub ginners—genteelly wild, and proud of it. Bruce was a very distinguished lawyer. Charles died within months of his father.”

Robert Hoff writes that his mother was born around Schuylerville,

taught school up there, then came down to New Jersey. Mae Randall lived in Staten Island, lost her house, and then came to New Jersey. She’s buried in Kenilworth Memorial Park, New Jersey — Grace is buried there too — and so are his mother and father.

He went to visits to Staten Island on weekends. He knew his grandmother Celoskia as well on Staten Island.

Three children of Norma Jeannette Randall and Enno August Knoche are living:

A son writes:

“Enno August Knoche and Norma Jeannette Randall were married in Hudson, Wisconsin on August 6, 1923. They left their work that day in St. Paul, Minnesota and eloped across the Mississippi River to nearby Hudson. Norma’s parents were not in favor of the marriage and elopement was the result. Norma and Enno returned to their respective jobs that day and did not see each other for two weeks thereafter. Enno August had suffered mightily as a schoolboy with the name handed him by his mother. A recurring taunt was “Eeno-Ino. Stickstackstenno. Eeno-Ino. Bowlegged Enno.” Fighting always ensued. Enno’s Uncle Charlie suggested he call himself Bill, and he was Bill or E. A. to his friends and associates. Norma never called him by a name other than Enno. For his part, he always used a pet name for her. It was always Dez or Desdimona. Late in 1923, E. A. accepted a job as an insurance adjuster with the General Adjustment Bureau. He was assigned to Duluth, Minnesota. He and Norma moved there. A year later, Enno was transferred to Charleston, West Virginia, a place they came to love despite its distance from their Minnesota roots. It was in Charleston that their first son was born .Later in 1925, the family was transferred to Pittsburgh, Pa., and that city became the family home for many years. Pittsburgh was the birthplace for Norma’s and Enno’s additional two sons. Depression years saw an end to Enno’s work with the General Adjustment Bureau. In about 1935, he established his own independent adjusting firm - the E. A. Knoche Company. It was a successful move. He had long experience in the insurance field.

He had attended Minnesota and Michigan Universities. He held a law degree from Georgetown University. Meanwhile, Norma was busy combining motherhood with her profession as an artist. She held down jobs involving artistic display, including heading store display arrangements for Kaufmann’s Department Store. She took up woodcarving and added it to her skills in drawing, woodworking, cabinet-making and silk-screening. She was handy and able with all tasks in the home. There was no electrical or plumbing problem she could not fix or replace. She loved to knit and write poetry. She was a fine musician - accomplished in various instruments. She got some of her greatest joy in designing and reproducing her own Christmas cards which always delighted their recipients.

The entire family was active in sports. Enno had played college baseball. He had been active in hockey and was a ranked tennis player in the northwest and in the Pittsburgh area. The three sons played competitive tennis and college basketball. When not participating in sports, the family was usually in attendance at Pittsburgh area events - football at Pitt Stadium, baseball and pro football at old Forbes Field, and hockey at Duquesne Gardens. Their Pittsburgh area residences were mainly in the suburb of Mount Lebanon, a few miles south of Pittsburgh. The sons attended public schools there. The first home Norma and Enno owned was one they had built at 250 Arden Road. They lived there in the early '30’ for two or three years. In 1934, they moved to 491 McCully Avenue. A year or two later, they moved to 228 Academy Boulevard. In 1938, they bought a rather rundown home in the Mission Hills section of Mount Lebanon, at 324 Jefferson Drive. This home had a tennis court in the backyard and Norma and Enno proceeded to remodel the house and upgrade the court. This became the family home for more than thirty years. Over the years, Norma and Enno were devoted Christian Scientists. Enno served for a time as First Reader (a rough equivalent of minister) at their church. Beginning in the 40’s, Enno began to provide as much support - financial and otherwise - as he could muster to assist in chemical research work in a small laboratory in southwestern Pennsylvania. He later sold his thriving insurance adjusting business to devote all his time and efforts to the research. He never succeeded in making the research viable and productive. By around 1970, Enno’s health had begun to fail. The Jefferson Drive home was sold and Norma and Enno moved to the Governor’s Apartments in nearby Carnegie. Enno died on June 12, 1977. Norma remained at their apartment in Carnegie. Her health, too, began to decline. She died in Pittsburgh on October 16, 1982. Both are buried in Oakland Cemetery in St. Paul.

Dartmouth Obituary of Walter Hadden Childs ’12 reads: “The passing of WALTER HADDEN CHILDS on October 23 marked the end of more than fifty years of devoted service to Dartmouth College through his loyalty and friendships in the Class of 1912. Although he was handicapped by illness which he kept to himself, he was always giving of his boundless enthusiasm to the spirit of the occasion. Pike, as he was known to all his friends, was born at Brattleboro, Vt., on April 5, 1888. He prepared for college at Manchester (N. H.) Central High School, entering Dartmouth in 1908. He was a member of Phi Gamma Delta and Dragon. One of Pike’s greatest loves was “barbershop” singing and wherever there was harmony, there was Pike; helping to recall the old favorites with just the right note to make the old song ring with warmth and friendship. Pike leaves a wealth of old friends both in Manchester, N.H., where he has lived since graduation, and all over the country. During World War I he served in the U.S. Naval Reserve for two years as Chief Petty Officer and Chief Storekeeper in the Subsistance Division, Naval Supply Depot, New York City. Returning to Manchester he became owner and operator of the Childs Insurance Agency, and has been affiliated with Travelers Insurance Company for more than 50 years. He was a member of Grace Episcopal Church; Washington Lodge, No. 61; A.F.&A.M.; New Hampshire Consistory; Bektash Temple; AAONMS; and the Manchester Country Club. Walter is survived by his beloved wife Lynda; a son, John A. Childs; two daughters, Persis Adele and Lynda Elizabeth; a stepson, David P. Goodwin; eight grandchildren, a brother and a sister. His home for many years was at 1228 Elm Street, Manchester, N. H. Funeral services were conducted at the Goodwin Funeral Home in Manchester on October 25.”

Goodwin descendant Marilyn Soper writes:

“I can remember visiting with Aunt Helen Childs in Brattleboro as a child.  I grew up in Manchester, NH and we drove over the old route 101 - seemed like it took forever to get to Vermont. Grandpa Childs was a wonderful gardener and businessman in Manchester, NH. Of course, my dad was the stepson, but Walter was the only grandfather I ever knew on Dad's side of the family.  Dad's father was killed in a car crash when Dad was a baby and Gram married Walter - a fraternity brother and Dartmouth classmate of my grandfather Goodwin.

Edward deConingh writes

“Turning to Ogden Field, I confirm he was the son of Caroline Althans, and assume that Howard Mortimer Field is correct as his father. The reason I say that is that it is understood through Caroline that the father deserted the family when the children were quite young, leaving the mother to raise them alone …. to help support herself Caroline established a small school for the early grades in New York City, and one of the teachers was Lucille McGee, a recent graduate of Florida State. That’s how she came into Ogden’s life. Ogden worked for Dun & Bradstreet in New York, and was transferred to Indianapolis in the early ‘40s. Later he worked as an accountant for Moran Electric Service Co. in Indianapolis.”
