In Reply to: Joseph E. Smith Mystery by John Duer of 79

I know already this probably will be of no assistance, but if I had a given name of one or more of the Randal family, it might help.

Lubbock wasn't formed until 1876 and it was from Bexar and Crosby counties. Also formed the same year from Bexar was Randall County. According to one site I found on the internet, Randall County was named after Brigadier General Horace Randall, son of John Leonard Randall and the grandson of John Bull. John Bull changed his name from Bull to Randall which was his mother's maiden.

Here's a web site which gives information on the Randalls and there's also a man named on that site with the last name of Smith. As I said, it's probably of no help but if you come up with a given name for the Randal in question, e-mail me and I'll see if I can help. My e-mail is halnbillie@aol.com.
