    Warren Jefferson Randolph, son of Howell W. and Julia Ann Randolph, was born on May 23, 1849, at Shiloh, N. J., and passed away May 24, 1921, aged 72 years and one day.
    In the spring of 1850, with his parents, he moved to Walworth, Wis.
    In 1880 he moved to Chicago, where he resided until 1910, when he returned to Walworth, remaining here until his death.
    In June, 1867, he was baptized and became a member of the Seventh Day Baptist Church at Walworth, of which he was a member at the time of his death.
    He was educated in Big Foot Academy and taught school for several terms in the Douglass, Lake and Coon Districts.
    On March 21, 1871, he was united in marriage with DeEtte Walters, and to this union were born two sons; Percy E., who was born on August 10, 1875, and died November, 1876, aged 15 months, and Ernest H., who was born on February 5, 1878.
    He is survived by his wife and son and his daughter-in-law, Mrs. E. H. Randolph and two granddaughters, Frances and Mildred. Also one half sister, Mrs. Addie Peterson, of Leonardsville, N. Y.
    He was a lover of music and while in Chicago, was a member of various of various male quartets, and male chorus clubs, including the Ravenswood Male Chorus and the Mozart Club.
    Funeral services were held in the Seventh Day Baptist church on Thursday afternoon, May 26, at three o'clock, conducted by the pastor. After this service his body was laid to rest by loving hands in the Walworth Cemetery.
    Mr. Randolph was a man loved by all who knew him. To touch his life was to carry away some of the fragrance of the flowers he was sowing along the way.
    He was a deeply practical man - his religion was practical and wherever he went he sought to make other hearts lighter and helped lift many loads. Far from immediate home and friends he is celebrated for a jovial pleasant nature. To know him was to love him. He was every one's friend - and how much it means to say that those who knew him best loved him most.
    He shall be missed by family and friends and we rest in the promise of a union above.
    A quartet composed of Miss Alta Leach, Mrs. G. D. Hargis, George Zimmerman and H. I. Coon, sang three selections. As the friends were entering and leaving before and after the services, Mrs. Hargis accompanied the organ with her violin.
    The pallbearers were: N. D. Maxson, L. F. Phillips, O. L. Smith, Martin Nelson, Monte Robbins, and Robert Belland.
    The flowers were many and beautiful, a mute tribute of the esteem in which he was held. G. D. H.
