    • John Randall Dead Resident Since '55

      Funeral of Pioneer Citizen Held on Tuesday; Lived in Same Home 60 Years

      Final respects were paid to the late John Randall, aged 84, and pioneer Elmira citizen, who was laid to rest in Elmira Cemetery, Tuesday afternoon, The funeral took place from his late residence, Factory street, to St. Paul's Lutheran church, and, thence to the cemetery.

      The late Mr. Randall was born on January 15, 1843, at Glanford, Wentworth County. He came to Elmira with his parents when he was about 12 years of age. He has resided in this vicinity ever since, occupying the same home for the past 60 years. In 1864 he married Wilhelmina Rapien, who predeceased him five years ago. Of the nine children born to them, only three are living. They are: Mrs. Henry Kraft, Elmira; Mrs. William Wilken, Elmwood, Neb.; and Jacob Randall, Preston. Two brothers and one sister also survive, Sam Randall, of Palmerston; Joseph Randall, of Kitchener, and Mrs. George Cathrae, of Elmira. There are also 18 grandchildren.

      The late Mr. Randall has always been hale and hearty and only during the last year or so has he been ailing. Death was due to pneumonia. All children, with the exception of Mrs. Wilken, of Elmwood, Neb., who was ill, were present at the funeral.
