Obituary: CAUDILL, Ralph K. (Kenton) SUPREME SACRIFICE PAID BY CAUDILL BOY; ARMY SAYS “PRESUMABLY DEAD” Missing since November 27, 1950, Sgt. Ralph K. Caudill, son of Mr. And Mrs. James E. Caudill Route 1, Waynesburg, has been classed “presumably dead” in a letter from the Army Adjutant General. “Full consideration has been given to all information bearing on the absence, including all records, reports and circumstances of your son”, the letter said. Sgt. Caudill was reported seriously wounded in January of 1951 and reported missing in March of 1951. No word has been received by his parents since then. He attended Highland High and went into the army when 17 years old. His basic training was taken at Camp Breckenridge and was a Sergeant in the Infantry when reported missing. He attended Fairview Baptist Church at Hall’s Gap and was a popular boy in the high school he attended. He was born in 1931. Other children and relatives of the bereaved parents are three brothers, Watson Caudill, Dayton; Jim Caudill, Waynesburg and Charlie Caudill, Cincinnati; three sisters, Mrs. Ray Jenkins, Waynesburg; Mrs. Lonzo McGuffey, Dayton and Miss Dixie Caudill at home and grandparents, Mrs. Leona Truller (Fuller), Isom, KY and J.
