Danville Green Cemetery, Danville, VT

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


Private Earl Rogers of the 1023 machine gun battalion, got a furlough from Camp Devens Saturday to reach his home in Danville if possible before the death of his grandfather, Peter Rogers, but the latter died an hour before the boy arrived. He was a veteran of the Civil war and aged 82. Private Rogers was captured in the first engagement of Co. B, and kept five months in a German prison. His diet consisted of raw beets and he was compelled to work 12 hours a day under a German guard. He was reported missing after the engagement and later found in prison by the Red Cross, which probably saved his life by supplying him with nourishing food.
