Cleveland Hill Bandholtz
Colonel, United States Army
Here is what I have been able to learn:
Cleveland Hill Bandholtz was born on June 13, 1891, in Oswego, New York, to May Cleveland and Lieutenant Harry Hill Bandholtz, while the latter was stationed at Fort Niagara, New York. Cleveland was educated in the schools of Constantine, Michigan, the hometown of his father. During 1909 and 1910 he attended the Culver Military Academy, Culver, Indiana, and from there took the comperitive examination for admittance to the US Military Academy.
He began life as a West Point Cadet on March 1, 1910 and graduated 25th, in a Class of 107, on June 12th, 1916. During his military career, Cleveland rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
He was married to Jean, and had a daughter Lois Jean.
His father went on to retire as Major General, and had served as Provost Marshal General, AEF, during World War I.
Hope this is of some help to you! The father is buried in the Constantine Cemetery, Constantine, Michigan.
