Thomas Randall1

ID # 1112, (1812-1873)
     Thomas Randall was born in 1812 at England.1 He married Rosina Thomas.1 He married Eva Margaret Koins on 7 January 1863 at Waterloo County, Ontario. (notes: The Waterloo County Marriage Register provides the following information:

Randell, Thomas, - , W Woolwich, England, s/o George and Sarah, married 7 Jan 1863 Eva Margaret Koins, 42, W Woolwich, Baden Germany, d/o Michael Schaefer & Marua Barbara.

The W following the couples' names indicates that they were both widowed.).1
He died on 10 January 1873 at Woolwich Twp, Waterloo County, Ontario.1 Birth years for Thomas, Rosina and the earlier children are taken from the 1851 census. This was mainly taken in January of 1852 and the age question was: What is your age as of your next birthday? Accuracy frequently suffered and so the ages are approximate.

We find Thomas Randall again with his family in the 1871 census. His daughter Sarah is not present, for she married in 1866. George is also not present. Caroline, his daughter by his second wife Eva is age 4. Emma is shown as Emily. The census does not specifically state that Thomas is a widower, but this may be the case. We do not have death dates for either of his wives, so both may be gone by 1871.

Death reg. 008460-73 Woolwich Twp., Waterloo Co. 10 January 1873, Thomas Randall, age 62, farmer, born England. Informant Jacob Frey, farmer, Woolwich (likely his son-in-law). Presbyterian.

One researcher states that Thomas's first wife was Caroline Varney.1
