This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Excerpt from "A Paper on  Art and Professional Artists of Cayuga County" by Col. T.J. Kennedy  for the county historical society, Auburn Morning News of Friday, March 15, 1878:

"Randall Palmer, a portrait painter, was born in Oneida County painted portraits in Albany for a time; came to Auburn in 1839, from Albany, and located permanently here.  Mr. Palmer painted some fine portraits and was justly entitled to be called an artist of merit.  At that time the public mind was somewhat excited about the Canadian Patriot war.  One of the heroes of the time was William Johnson, or the Hero of the Lakes, as he was called.  His daughter, a bright, wholesome looking girl, proved herself a hero on her father's behalf.....During this time, Mr. Palmer began and painted his picture of Johnson and his daughter under the name of  Hero of the Lakes.  After he had begun this picture, Mr. Palmer removed to Auburn bringing the picture with him...His daughter was in the background in a boat with an oar raised, something after the design we see in pictures of The Lady of the Lake....Mr. Palmer said he considered it one of his best.  

Mr. Palmer was in person tall and well made, light brown hair, approaching to sandy; a man of elegance and manners, courteous to all, well read and kind.  He was fond of hunting.  On one such occasion, while out gunning, in getting over a fence, he fell, and burst a blood vessel, which caused his death, about 1842.  Mr. Palmer left an estimable widow, afterward the wife of Judge Gallop, and an only daughter, Lorraine Palmer, who, later in life, came to a tragic end."

"About 1838 or '9, Mr. Palmer, artist, removed from Seneca Falls to Auburn.  He had been a pupil of Fredric R. Spencer, of New York City; a clever, genial man, painted a bright, attractive portrait, one I will  remember, of Father Richards, Professor of the Seminary."
