Wallace Bertholf – Captain, United States Navy

You 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.
Robert Douvillle, CDR, USCG(Ret)
