Henry Beaman Randall

Henry Beaman Randall

Son of Thomas Watson Randall and Rutha Ella Farmer Randall, Henry Beaman Randall was born January 5, 1891 in Franklin County, Georgia.

On May 1, 1910, Henry Beaman Randall married Muriel Willene “Willie” Maret in Lavonia, Georgia.1)

Muriel Willene “Willie” Maret (born December 19, 1891) was the daughter of Joseph William Maret & Adela R. Walters.

They had the following children:

  1. Agatha "Gatha" Muriel Randall (June 15, 1911 – March 20, 1997)
  2. Walter Baxter "Dub" Randall (July 5, 1912 – January 28, 1989)
  3. Thomas Edwin Randall (August 13, 1914 – January 24, 1994)
  4. Harmon Floyd Randall (July 7, 1920 – August 22, 2005)
  5. Eloise M. Randall Rottman (Sept. 4, 1925 - Nov. 9, 2014)
Muriel “Willie” Maret-Randall (later known to her grandchildren & great grandchildren as “Mama Randall”.
Because the name “Walter” did not belong to any ancestors in our line, when Henry & Muriel named their first son “Walter”, in 1912, it is obvious that they were “in tune” with the pop culture of their time! In fact, the name “Walter” stands out because it once ranked the highest of all male names. In 1914, it hit number 10 in popularity, but the greatest number of Walters was actually born in 1892, when 1.696 percent of newborn boys were given that name. Walter didn’t drop out of the top 100 until after 1972.2)
However, the name “Walter” then became a “family name” when Walter Baxter "Dub" Randall named his first son Walter Clarke Randall… who then named his second son Walter Mark Randall.
World War I Selective Service (draft) “Registration Card” for Henry Beaman Randall. Under the Selective Service Act, registration boards were re-structured as “local boards”. The “10-1-32-A” stamp simply means that the Provost Marshal General had designated that Franklin County “local board” as “10-1-32” with the “-A” indicating when the registration took place. Those with “-A” took place on June 5, 1917. Those with “-B” took place on August, 24, 1918. And those with “-C” took place on Sept. 12, 1918.

Shortly after June 5, 1917 (when he registered for Selective Service in GA), Henry Beaman Randall moved his family to Saint Michael and Saint Phillip, Charleston, South Carolina, where he worked as a Security Guard at a Utility Terminal.

By 1930 (according to the 1930 U.S. Census), Henry Beaman Randall had moved his family back to Lavonia, GA. Also according to the census, Floyd Randall (age 9) had been born in South Carolina. This move back to Georgia may have been due to “The Great Depression” (which began on “Black Tuesday”, October 29, 1929).3)

By 1940 (according to the 1940 U.S. Census), Henry Beaman Randall had moved his family back to Highland Park, Michigan (a suburb of Detroit).

His grandson, Walter Clarke Randall, recalled having taken a few trips with his Uncle Byron Hudson Clarke (who drove), to visit his grandparents in Michigan. The distance was approximately 725 miles, and would take approx. 11 hours of driving non-stop (of course they made some short stops along the way, so it was likely closer to a 12 hour trip.). On at lease one instance, he remembers his Aunt Lucy Elizabeth Clarke, traveling with them.

By 1940 (according to the 1940 U.S. Census), Henry Beaman Randall had moved his family (along with his 81 year old Father-in-law, Joseph W. Maret), to Wayne, MI (near Detroit, MI). Noticing that his son-in-law had been born in Michigan, we can speculate that his parents still lived in the Detroit area. The Randall family rented a house at: 157 Grove Avenue, Highland Park, Wayne, Michigan.

Noted in the census, the highest level of education Henry Beaman Randall had achieved was to complete the 8th Grade. Perhaps the move to the Detroit area was in search of better career opportunities. By age 49, he was working in the Automobile Industry (Ford Motor Co.) as a Crank Trimmer. He was joined by his son, Floyd H. Randall (age 19), who went to work in the Automobile Industry as an “Inspector”.

Walter Baxter "Dub" Randall does not appear on Henry B. Randall's census because he “didn't like Detroit” and was living with his grandmother - in Georgia.

Henry Beaman Randall died December 21, 1949 (at age 58) from a bleeding stomach ulcer (following surgery) – and is buried in Roseland Park Cemetery, Berkley, Oakland County, Michigan [Corner of Woodward Avenue and Twelve Mile Road]. (Ref: Find A Grave Memorial# 119784333).4)

His wife, Muriel Willene “Willie” Maret Randall developed diabetes and died October 22, 1979 (at age 87) in Toccoa, Georgia. She was also buried in Roseland Park Cemetery, Berkley, Oakland County, Michigan [Corner of Woodward Avenue and Twelve Mile Road]. (Ref: Find A Grave Memorial# 119784296).5)
