Samuel Wallace Randall

Samuel was the third child of Jeffrey and Sarah (Wallace) Randall. He was born on September 30, 1808 in Ridge, Long Island and died March 13,1888. He married 1. Joanna M. Davis, born May 26, 1840, daughter of Albert Bryant and Clarissa Davis. He married 2. Nancy O. Griffin in November of 1855.

He eventually moved to Yaphank where he was a farmer and a dealer in real estate. The day the big blizzard began on March 12, 1888, he went to the barn. A large barn door came off and fell on him. His wife was sick in bed and his daughter was unable to get him into the house at once. The exposure to cold and the concussion produced by the barn door falling are the reasons for his death as given on his death certificate. Samuel, Joanna and Nancy are buried in the Union Cemetery at Middle Island.
