Birth: May 15, 1890
Death: Dec. 28, 1961

Asa Benjamin Randall, the son of Charles Babcock and Mary Marie (Short) Randall was born on 15 May 1890 in Saint Charles, Minnesota. Asa's father, Charles died of Consumption when he was 18 months old and his mother Mary remarried Nathan G. Osmer. His mother died in 1902 when Asa was about 12 and he went to live with his Aunt Eunice (Short - his Mother's sister) & A.B. Danforth in North Dakota. Asa then relocated to Doland, SD and lived with his sister Ruth and husband Bill Matteson. Here he was introduced to Matilda Albrecht, whom he would later marry. His sister Ruth died in 1908 from complications in childbirth. Asa then lived on his own in St. Charles, MN in a boarding house and worked as a day laborer. For several years, he, with a team of horses, would go into Kansas and mow hay and thrash wheat during the growing season. In 1913 he filed a homestead claim near Sheridan Lake, CO. Once he had built a small farm house he sent for Matilda Albrecht, also from near Doland, SD and they married on 26 June 1914 in Cheyenne Wells, CO. Asa and Matilda homesteaded 160 acres in Colorado and in 1918 they returned to South Dakota. They farmed in South Dakota until the mid-1930's when drought and continued loss of crops forced the family to relocate to Macon County, Missouri in 1934. They farmed for a number of years in Macon County, MO and then both worked at the Still-Hildreth Sanatarium in Macon, MO and Tulsa, OK.
