Amos W. Markle

Patrolman Amos Markle succumbed to injuries he suffered four years earlier while attempting to make an arrest during a riot.

While working with other officers to stop a riot that had broken out in a portion of Richmond that formerly was known as Goosetown, Patrolman Markle was struck in the head with a stone by an intoxicated combatant who was later arrested.

The injuries disabled Patrolman Markle who never fully recovered and he died from complications of those head injuries four years later.

Patrolman Markle was a US Army veteran of the Civil War. He was survived by his wife.
