From the Daily Globe-Gazette the following sketch of his career is taken: Ellsba Randall was born in the town ot Brookfield, Madison county, N. Y., Sept. 22, 1818. He worked in the mills of his father until about 1840. Was married to Lucy M. York, Oct. 31,1838, daughter of John and Nancy York, all of the town of Brookfield. Lucy M. York was born Dec. 7, 1821. In 1843 the mills burned. In 1844 moved to Edmeston, Otsego county, where he ran a gristmill and manufactured hardware for New York market until 1850. Moved to Belmond, Alleghany county, N. Y. Manufactured sash, doors, and blinds in company with his brother, Adin Randall. Nov. 1, 1854, moved to Iowa, stopping a short time at Waterloo. In June, 1854, took up his permanent residence in Mason City, Cerro Gordo county, Iowa. In company with Samuel Douglass of Benton county, built the circular saw mill on Lime Creek, Sawed the first board Oct. 31, 1855, and built a grist mill of two run of stone two years later. In 1872 obtained a patent for the Randall lime kiln. In 1876 sold his interest in the mill property to John T. Elder. For part pay he took a farm two miles north of Mason City. In politics he was a whig and gave his first vote to Wm. Henry Harrison. Was a member of the first organized republican convention in Cerro Gordo county and has acted with the same ever since. He held the office of justice of the peace for a number of years after the county was organized in 1855. Was county judge one term, .county recorder one term, was the first county supervisor one term, and held other minor offices of trust up to 1888. Was one of the directors of the Iowa Central railway for two years. Was converted at the age of 17 and joined the Methodist church, of which he and his wife are still members. Mr. Randall's children were all at his bedside when he died. They are: Martha Ann, wife of Senator Henderson of Bradgate, Iowa; Lucy Ellen, wife of Prof. L. L. Huntley of this place, (she was the wife of Chas. H. Huntley, who gave his life to his country at the battle of Pleasant Hill, La., 1864, before marrying Prof. Huntley.) Lurena, the wife of Henry Keerl of this city; Millard F., who lives at Algona; Mary, wife of E. R. Bogardus of this city; Sarah E., wife of A. B. Huntley of Buffalo Center; Adin of this city; and Cynthia, wife of A. T. Stewart of Duluth. The following sketch of Mr. Randall appears in the history of Cerro Gordo county: To the pioneer there is always much interest connected with the first mills built. The first mill in Mason City was erected in the summer of 1855, when the few settlers were rejoiced to know that a saw mill bad been put in operation by Elisha Randall, who was in company with Samuel Douglass of Vinton, Iowa. This mill sawed its first board in October, 1835, serving a good purpose in cutting lumber for the buildings to be erected the coming spring. But in the spring of 1856 the proprietors were obliged to witness the rewards of their hard labor and the pride of the settlement, swept away in a few moments by a flood. But with pluck and energy they soon rebuilt, adding a corn cracker, which was highly appreciated by the settlers, whose chief diet wag corn bread. Mr. Randall relates a touching Incident of pioneer hardship, in which R man named Place, living 24 miles to 'the north in Worth county, came in the winter of 1856-7 over the crusted snow, drifts OB snow shoes drawing a aaok ol corn on a band sled. It was Sunday morning and he asked Mr- Randall U be would, BO to the mill and grind it Qut for Uiw P his family were at home Buffering for something to eat. .
