According to a 1971 letter from John Harbeson to Robert Ennis:
Joseph Randall, Master Carpenter, was the builder of the Walnut Street Theater from the plans of the architect John Haviland. A Quaker, he was elected a member of the Carpenters' Company of the City and County of Philadelphia in 1824, died in 1856, and is buried in Laurel Hill Cemetery.
Joseph Randall was also John Harbeson's great-grandfather.
