His wife, Elizabeth, was the daughter of John Randall and Abigail ___, whose family name and birth does not appear on record. She was the granddaughter of John Randall, the progenitor of the Randall family of Westerly, RI, and Stonington, Conn. His name first appears at Newport, RI from which place he came to Westerly as early as 1667, where the remainder of his life was spent. The Randall land was about four miles northeast of Stonington Borough, known as Angwilla and considered the finest land of the town. These lands join on the north the lands of Thomas Brown (2), and have been in the Randall name as late as 1875. These farms now, in 1906, are mostly owned by Elias Miner (1164) and his sons. The Randall families were highly respected and progressive, ranking high in moral character, and prominent citizens of the town. -------------------- Baptized 2 Aug 1696.
