Ralph Hall
U. S. Army
World War I

Ralph Hall was born on 30 July 1894 in Ogden, Weber County, UT. He was the son of Henry C. and Mary Ann (Woodcox) Hall.

Ralph fell victim to the influenza pandemic, which killed more of our soldiers in World War I than were killed in hostile action. He came down with the flu aboard his troop ship, which was docked in Liverpool, England. He died in a hospital ashore, presumably in Liverpool.

A relative, Howard Hall, was in Army training at the time in Fort Lewis, WA. He wrote: "They brought word to me that Ralph had died, and I felt bad about it you know; I wanted to mourn his death. Told them about it. Nothing doing; I had to go out and drill, just the same as nothing happened."

Death and Burial

Ralph Hall died of influenza on 5 October 1918 in Liverpool, England. He was initially buried in England, but his body was later returned to the U.S. and interred at the Ogden City Cemetery in Ogden, UT, in Plat 2B-8-27-1W.

The birth date shown on his headstone is incorrect: He was born 30 July 1894.

Ralph Hall left behind a widow and two young children.
