Unto Mr. and Mrs. Randell have been born four children, namely: George D., Pearl, Anna and Clara. After his marriage Mr. Randell was engaged in farming near Bowen, Hancock county, Illi- nois, for two years, and on his return to Ma- haska county at the end of that time he pur- chased the Ed Carpenter farm one mile west of Wright, where he now resides, owning and operating two hundred and twelve acres of good land. In connection with general farm- ing he is quite extensively engaged in stock- raising, annually feeding from three to four carloads of stock, and he is today numbered among the most promising young men of Harrison township.
