Randle, Richmond a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, was originally a member of the Tennessee Conference, where he travelled five years. He was transferred in 1836 to the Arkansas Conference, which then included Louisiana west of the Mississippi River. Here he labored efficiently in stations and as presiding elder until the Conference of 1844, when he took a superannuated relation. In 1845 he became again effective, and so continued until 1861, serving as presiding elder for nine of these years. His sons having volunteered, he accompanied them to the war, soon to die. He was a man of deep and fervent piety, a true friend, a noble and useful preacher. — Minutes of Annual Conf. M. E. Church, South, 1861, p. 323.
