1916 Oct 18
Evansville, IN, death certificate Charles E Randall dies at age 67-71 of septicemia.

The locations of Charles E Randall, between 1884 and 1892, have not been ascertained.

Records for Randall are inconsistent to say the least. Building a coherent timeline is difficult when the documentation is hard to believe.

For instance the US census reflects a different date of birth for Randall each decade and then the death certificate is different than all the rest. All other factors match. (see below)


Atlanta (GA) Constitution - 04 Feb 1895

Charles E Randall and his son Charles W Randall, both photographers, are often listed as Chas Randal, C Randall or just Randall. With this in mind, the timeline here has been assembled with entries that are fairly certain for Charles E Randall, unless otherwise noted.

Atlanta (GA) Constitution - 19 Dec 1897


Evansville (IN) Press - 23 Jan 1907
Probably Charles W

Evansville (IN) Press - 15 Nov 1907
