I came across the notice that Lieutenant Clement Griscom Randle, Jr. died at age 28 and is buried in Arlington Cemetery as I was searching for information on my relatives, Almy Miller Randle and her husband, Clement Griscom Randle.
Mrs. Randle, a cousin of my grandmother, Julia Benedict Walker, lived well into her 80's at 1619 30th Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. She had been widowed before World War II when her husband (CG Randle Sr. died) and had then lost her son (CG Randle, Jr.) during WWII. I assume that Lieutenant Randle was her son.
Mr. and Mrs. Randle were born during the late 1880's and married approximately 1908-1912. I believe that both Mrs Randle (nee Almy Miller) and Mr. Randle Sr were from New York. I don't know whether Lieutenant Randle was born in New York or Washington. I would appreciate hearing anything you turn up on Lieutenant Randle and his family.
Lieutenant Randle, age 28 at the time of his death, was apparently killed in World War II. He was born in 1914 and served as a Cavalry Officer with the Fourth Armored Division. Lieutenant Randle is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
If you have information regarding the Lieutenant and his life, please contact the Webmaster.
