Glenn Rayne

On June 14th, 1893 Glenn Rayne was born in Berlin, Maryland. His parents were John M. Rayne and Mary Ellen Timmons Rayne. On May 25th, 1918 he was living on State Street in Delmar, Delaware and from that home address he enlisted in the United States Army. As many young men, who enlisted in the Army, he expected to be sent to Europe to fight in the Great War. On July 17th he was promoted to Private First Class. Like many of the causes of deaths in World War I he died of Broncho Pneumonia at Camp Mead, Maryland on October 01, 1918. About 6 weeks later on 11/11/1918 at 11 AM the great war ended. The American Legion Post in Delmar, Delaware named their post for Glenn Rayne. Currently I do not know where he was buried.
