South Newfane Cemetery, Newfance, VT

Check the cemetery for location/directions and other veterans who may be buried there.


Few of the villagers last Monday had heard that Mr. Hiram Davis had been stricken with pneumonia, for several days, hence the report of his funeral that day on the hill farm, where he had resided for many years, was a great surprise. His age was about 78, and he was probably the oldest veteran of Birchard post. He was in attendance at the recent G. A. R. Entertainment, having just then returned from Brattleboro where he was summoned before the pension examining board. He left a widow, formerly Mrs. Vassar, and a son , David Davis. Another son, also a soldier, was buried at sea during the war.
