From a researcher whose wife descends from Benajah/Benager Randall of Owens Co., IN...Gordon Faber ...we gad sparse communication....the following: "Benager and his wife Jemima had several children, mostly daughters. His son Noah Randall came to Iowa. His daughter Elizabeth (Betsy) Randall married George Hicks, Sr. My wife Sally descends from this same George and Elizabeth (Randall) Hicks. Benager and his wife went from North Carolina to Owens Co., IN circa 1832. George and Elizabeth Hicks also traveled circa 1832 from North Carolina to Indiana, I do not know if they traveled together. Noah Randall was in Owens Co., IN several years before Benager and the Hicks family."
