Dad remembers Randolph as "Uncle Ranny". He lived on a farm and was never married. He was "quite a character". He had a trough for watering his horses, but there was no end on it, so all the water just ran out the end. Uncle Ranny also originated the concept of "retaliating" when given a present. One day, Dad, Uncle Bill, and the Starns boys (cousins) were all out at Uncle Ranny's. He had a gift of chocolate covered coconut candy that he had bought at the dime store all wrapped and asked the boys to take it back into town and mail it for him. He had received a gift in the mail from someone (possibly a sister) and figured he had to retaliate.
