1920 Albany Medical Annals - Volume 31 - Page 559:
"Dr. Randall Williams, an alumnus of the Albany Medical College of the Class of 1848, died at his home in LeRoy N.Y., Friday, June 10, 1910, after a short illness. He was one of the oldest residents of Genesee county and was highly respected. He was born on September I, 1824, at Allen's Hill, Richmond, Ontario county, N.Y., and his ancestors were the Williams family who settled in the state of Massachusetts in the early days of this country. He studied medicine at Albany and after his graduation went to Western New York. After practicing at Byron Center a short time he established himself in LeRoy. Soon after he married Miss Anna Garfield, of Troy, who at that time was a teacher at Ingham University. Mrs. Williams died on November 24, 1901. One son, Seward Williams, of Orange, N.J., survives his father. Dr. Williams was one of the oldest members of the Presbyterian church where he was always a regular attendant until prevented by illness. He took great interest in all of its branches of work, especially in the Sunday school. Mrs. Williams was one of the charter members of the Maternal Association and Dr. Williams took a deep interest in the organization. He frequently gave addresses before the meetings, showing his deep interest in the youth of the town. For an appreciation of the character of Dr. Williams the following comment of the Rochester Post-Express may be read: Dr. Randall Williams, who died in LeRoy yesterday at the age of 86, was the oldest physician in Genesee county; for half a century he had practiced medicine in LeRoy. In early times he traveled about on foot or on horseback; then came the regular doctor's buggy."
