Time for my mother's father. Born in Arkansas, but spent most of his life in Ohio. I really don't have a huge amount of biographical information on Ralph Brandon. Perhaps other members of the family will be able to fill some in or send me more as time goes on. He died while my Grandmother was still pregnant with my Mother, so my mom never knew him, although her older brothers did. I have vague memories of stories of how he died, but nothing solid enough to put down, and no sources to back it up. Something about a doctor's office or a chiropractor or something. He died young. Just about a week short of his 36th birthday. Just about my age now. In any case, click the picture for more.
