EARNESTINE:
HELLO AGAIN! I KNOW IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME, BUT HAVE HAD A LOT OF UPS AND DOWNS. WANTED TO UPDATE YOU ON MY RANDELL RESEARCH. SEE OF ANY OF THESE PEOPLE RING ANY BELLS. MY HUSBAND'S GRANDFATHER WAS ELVIN PERCY RANDELL, HIS WIFE WAS ANNIE KATHERINE BACHER. HIS GREAT GRANDFATHER WAS MERKLE (or MIRKEL) SMITH RANDELL, WIFE ETTA OLIVE RODDEN. HIS GG GRANDFATHER WAS BACKUS SMITH RANDELL, WIFE WAS MATILDA JANE WILLIS, HIS GGG GRANDFATHER WAS WILLIAM RANDELL, WIFE JANE DYER. IT IS UNKNOWN IF WILLIAM RANDELL HAD BROTHERS & SISTERS OR WHO HIS PARENTS WERE. TRACED THE FAMILY BACK TO TENNESSEE & NORTH CAROLINA. THEN BACKUS RANDELL MOVED TO OKLAHOMA, AND I FOUND HIM IN THE 1900 CENSUS IN ARMSTRONG COUNTY, TX. WITH THREE OF THE YOUNGEST OF HIS CHILDREN, BUT NO WIFE LISTED. RECORDS SAY SHE DIED IN 1900 IN OKLAHOMA. COULD HAVE COME TO TX RIGHT AFTER SHE DIED. UNFORTUNATELY, HAVE NOT FOUND ANY BROTHERS OR SISTERS OF BACKUS RANDELL. THERE IN LIES ANOTHER POSSIBLE CONNECTION. THE POSSIBLE CONNECTION COULD BE WITH THE CHILDREN OF BACKUS RANDELL. THEY ARE - SARAH, JOHN ERWIN, WILLIAM ALLEN, MINNIE, JUNIE, MERKLE, GROVER CLEVELAND. AM TRYING TO FIND WHAT HAPPENED TO THESE CHILDREN AND WHO THEY MARRIED. IF THEY MARRIED AND HAD CHILDREN OF THEIR OWN, IT WOULD FIT WITH SOME OF THE DATED YOU MENTIONED FROM THOSE FAMILY MEMBERS IN YOUR BIBLE. THE SEARCH GOES ON. WILLIAM RANDELL BORN ABOUR 1819, BACKUS BORN ABOUT 1845, THE CHILDREN BORN TO BACKUS BORN BETWEEN 1868 AND 1892. WILL KEEP YOU POSTED. VICKY
