Bull–Randall Family Genealogy Wiki

John B. Randall

Son of Anderson Smith Randal and Sophia Mitchell, John B. Randall was born on Nov. 24, 1871, in Franklin County, Georgia.

While some have speculated that the middle initial stood for “Bull”, there is NO evidence what-so-ever to support this. In fact, it is more likely that the “B.” stood for Burrell; to honor one of Sophia's brothers, Burrell Mitchell. Even in Anderson Smith Randal's “Will”, he is listed as “John B. Randal”.

John B. Randall was only 4 years old when his father, Anderson Smith Randal, died on December 1, 1875 (at age 42).1)

John B. Randall appears on the 1880 U.S. Federal Census (at age 8) living with his mother (Sophia) and siblings.
