I noticed that he died in Ypsilanti, MI. I have never seen any info on his parents, but a clue could be that Joshua Randall also died in Ypsilanti, MI, 10 years before Hiram. Both were born in upstate NY and Joshua's father, Peter Randall IV was having kids right near Hirams' birthplace at the right time to be Hiram's father, with Katherine Klinck as the mother. Some of the first names of the descendants of Hiram are the same as Joshua's and Peter's descendants. Does ANYBODY know the parents of Hiram Randall, b. 5 Feb 1797, Schoharie Co. or Westerlo, Albany Co., NY, d. 14 Jun 1862 Pittsfield Township, Ypsilanti MI, m. Caroline Elmendorf 18 Sep 1824, Cobbleskill, NY ???
