Biography of James W. Randall
Orleans County, NY Biographies





Randall, James Walter, who for nearly forty years was a practicing physician in Orleans county, was born in Kendall April 21, 1823, and was the son of Amos Randall, a farmer of that town. James was brought up on a farm and at eighteen went to Brockport to school. Later on he went to Kentucky and taught school, and at the same time studied medicine. Returning to the north he entered the University of Vermont at Burlington, and was graduated with the degree of M. D., June 23, 1848. Dr. Randall practiced medicine at Oak Orchard one year, and then located permanently at the county seat. He was for many years a leading physician in Albion. His practice was successful and much was due to the efficient assistance of his wife, who not only cared for the office calls, but as well visited the sick and administered timely relief in many cases. Ill health, however, compelled his retirement from active life. Travel at home and abroad failed to restore his broken health, and he died February 14, 1884. His wife, whom he married November 16, 1850, was Adaline L., daughter of Zachariah and Nancy (Miles) Spencer, of Oak Orchard. Dr. Randall was one of the organizers of and earnest workers in the County Medical Society, and for several terms its president. He was an actice Republican, and was one of the Board of Pension Examiners in the County.
