Joseph Henry Randall

Contributor: hsvenson Created: 3 years ago Updated: 4 months ago

Joseph Henry Randall is believed to be a convert to LDS missionaries in England. He left Euston Square, London in 1855, departing from Liverpool aboard the Juventa 31 Mar and arriving in Philadelphia 7 May 1855. Five weeks later having joined the Jacob F. Secrist / Noah T. Guymon Company, he crossed the plains into Utah, departing 13 June 1855 from Mormon Grove, Kansas and arriving at Salt Lake 7 Sep 1855. His soon to be wife Anna and her baby Oscar would follow the next year along with his mother-in-law Elizabeth Lock Burdett and his sister-in-law Emma Mary Burdett. All except Joseph would be indebted to the Perpetual Emigrating Fund Company. Anna Burdette Randall, her mother, sister and little Oscar all travelled in the Daniel D. McArthur Handcart Company, the second of five that year. The first two companies arrived in Salt Lake City on September 26, 1856 and the third followed less than a week later. When Brigham Young learned on October 4, that more than a thousand people in two handcart and two wagon companies would be arriving very late in the season, he began a rescue effort to help bring them to Salt Lake City. It involved hundreds of men, teams, and wagons. Joseph Henry Randall was one of those who took part in this rescue. In November of 1856 Joseph and Anna were married. They would have five children together. Anna died at age 54 in St. George Utah, Joseph would live out his years there as well. He married Louisa Jane Hall in 1881. She died in 1887 and he married for the last time to Sarah Jane Dyson in 1891. Joseph died March 1st 1909 just before his 87th birthday. Note: Joseph sometimes went by his middle name of Henry as found in the Juventa passenger list and the 1870 census.

Nearly six years after the disappearance of her husband, Sarah Jane met Joseph Henry Randall who resided in St. George. He had been married twice before and each time his wife died leaving children. He had been a widower for several years, and a mutual friend, Brother William Thompson, had rather engineered the match between he and Sarah. By the time Joseph invited Sarah to be his wife, the children from the other marriages had grown and married or the older children had taken over their care – except for young Henry. Sarah Jane married Joseph Henry in the St. George Temple on the 26th of May, 1891. They made their home in St. George with Sarah bringing nine-year-old Nellie Marie to join this new family unit of Joseph Henry and young Henry. Henry had celebrated his fifth birthday on the 9th of May just a couple of weeks before the marriage took place. Just over a month later Sarah and Joseph Henry took young Nellie to the temple and had her sealed, along with her deceased brother, Edward, to them. Nellie did not agree with this decision because she remembered her own father and wanted to be sealed to him. She mentioned this several times in her later life. Just over a year later a son, Brigham Dyson Randall, joined this new family on the 4th of August, 1892. This made the new union a productive one. Then a fun little daughter, Sarah Jane Randall, joined the family on the 4th of May, 1895. Life seemed pleasant and satisfying to Sarah until she experienced another great tragedy. As she curled Nellie’s hair with curling irons heated in a coal oil lamp, the large celluloid comb burst into flames which caught the curtains of the room and the crib on fire. By the time they could rescue her, little five-year-old Sarah Jane suffered such severe burns that she did not survive. Truly a tragedy for mother Sarah as a second child burned to death. Nellie, nearly nineteen, felt haunted by those memories the rest of her life. “Brother Randall was a kind, faithful husband who spent most of his time in the temple. He died 1 March 1909, at the age of 87.” The court awarded her the Randall home.

Life timeline of Joseph Henry Randall

Joseph Henry Randall was born on 17 Mar 1822
Joseph Henry Randall was 10 years old when Charles Darwin embarks on his journey aboard HMS Beagle, during which he will begin to formulate his theory of evolution. Charles Robert Darwin, was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
Joseph Henry Randall was 18 years old when Samuel Morse receives the patent for the telegraph. Samuel Finley Breese Morse was an American painter and inventor. After having established his reputation as a portrait painter, in his middle age Morse contributed to the invention of a single-wire telegraph system based on European telegraphs. He was a co-developer of the Morse code and helped to develop the commercial use of telegraphy.
Joseph Henry Randall was 37 years old when Petroleum is discovered in Titusville, Pennsylvania leading to the world's first commercially successful oil well. Petroleum is a naturally occurring, yellow-to-black liquid found in geological formations beneath the Earth's surface. It is commonly refined into various types of fuels. Components of petroleum are separated using a technique called fractional distillation, i.e. separation of a liquid mixture into fractions differing in boiling point by means of distillation, typically using a fractionating column.
Joseph Henry Randall was 39 years old when Abraham Lincoln is elected as the 16th President of United States. Abraham Lincoln was an American statesman and lawyer who served as the 16th President of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through the American Civil War—its bloodiest war and perhaps its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. In doing so, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the economy.
Joseph Henry Randall was 56 years old when Thomas Edison announces his invention of the phonograph, a machine that can record and play sound. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Joseph Henry Randall was 63 years old when Louis Pasteur successfully tests his vaccine against rabies on Joseph Meister, a boy who was bitten by a rabid dog. Louis Pasteur was a French biologist, microbiologist and chemist renowned for his discoveries of the principles of vaccination, microbial fermentation and pasteurization. He is remembered for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and prevention of diseases, and his discoveries have saved many lives ever since. He reduced mortality from puerperal fever, and created the first vaccines for rabies and anthrax. His medical discoveries provided direct support for the germ theory of disease and its application in clinical medicine. He is best known to the general public for his invention of the technique of treating milk and wine to stop bacterial contamination, a process now called pasteurization. He is regarded as one of the three main founders of bacteriology, together with Ferdinand Cohn and Robert Koch, and is popularly known as the "father of microbiology".
Joseph Henry Randall was 74 years old when George VI of the United Kingdom (d. 1952) George VI was King of the United Kingdom and the Dominions of the British Commonwealth from 11 December 1936 until his death in 1952. He was the last Emperor of India and the first Head of the Commonwealth.
