Captain, United States Navy
may be interested to know that Marriner Bertholf’s
father, Wallace, is buried elsewhere in Arlington.
A younger brother of Ellsworth Price Bertholf (buried next to Marriner), Wallace was also a graduate of the USNA.
Unfortunately father and son were estranged
and Marriner’s widow elected to have him buried by his uncle rather than
his father. Wallace, I have been told, earned the Navy Cross
in WWI. He too was a Captain.
