Additional information submitted by: Sharon Rhoades:
Randolph Alexander, son of Randolph and Malinda (Boon) Alexander (daughter of Governor Ratliff Boon) was born Aug. 15, 1842, on the old farm, part of which is now Chandler.
He was the youngest of the family of seven boys and two girls, all of whom have gone on before except Mrs. Hopkins, of Evansville, Ind., who is the oldest one, she being 85 years old.
He died in Chandler, Ind., March 2, 1914, aged 71 years, 6 months and 17 days.
His grandfather, Ratliff Boon, went to Congress when he had to go to Washington on horseback, and also was Governor of Indiana.
He grew up to manhood on the farm and later lay his life on the altar of his country, he being a volunteer in the 136th Indiana Infantry. After coming home he lived on the old farm until Feb. 10th, 1870, he was married to Miss Susannah Poole who had a small farm which they rented and moved to Evansville, and while living there professed faith in Christ and united with the First Cumberland Presbyterian church and remained a member until his death.
For several years he was regular in attendance taking great pleasure in the services, but suffering with neurasthenia, which increased with the years, until he could scarcely go to church any of the time. Yet he seemed to keep up his interest in all its work and contributed of his small income as best he could.
His wife dying in January, 1892, he lived alone until March 13th, 1894, when he was united in marriage to Mrs. Phoebe Gardner, who still survives him. Having no children, his wife and sister with many nephews, neices, cousins and a host of friends are left to mourn their loss and remember him with kindest regards.
His funeral was held at the Cumberland Presbyterian church at Chandler, conducted by Rev. John A. McLane, and his remains were laid to rest in Center cemetery to await the resurrection morn.
