Randolph, John a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, was born in Trigg County, Ky., May 9, 1829. He was converted in 1847 (or 1848), licensed to preach Nov. 23, 1850, and admitted on trial in the Louisville Conference in 1851. He filled twelve important fields of labor, continuing his work until the first Sunday in June, 1863. The staple of his preaching, as of all he did, was strong practical sense, sanctified and rendered efficient by deep piety. — Minutes of Annual Conf: M. E. Church, South, 1864, p. 481.
