Historian, Herman "Charlie" Brown

At its annual meeting held in St. Albans, Vermont on November 11, 1903, the Vermont Society of Sons of the American Revolution (VTSSAR) adopted a resolution authorizing an attempt to ascertain, as nearly as might be possible, the number of Revolutionary soldiers buried in Vermont. This project was coordinated by the Society's Secretary Walter H. Crockett.

Compatriot Crocket requested information on the burials through the Vermont newspapers. From the responses and securing other names from Vermont gazetteers and histories, 4,608 names were compiled. The results of this work was presented by a paper read before the Vermont Historical Society in the Hall of the State House of Representatives, Montpelier, Vermont on October 27, 1904. Additionally, the results were published in the "Proceedings of the Vermont Historical Society" 1903-1904 and 1905-1906. Caution should be taken when referring to these reports and their subsequent publication. The report states: "Entire accuracy cannot safely be claimed for a list gathered from such miscellaneous sources, with little opportunity for verification. Some names may be credited to the wrong town. The names of others who afterward removed from the State may appear in the list."

In the year 2009, responding to a suggestion by the Society's 2nd Vice-President Herman C. Brown to its Board of Managers, the VTSSAR kicked off a project to enhance upon the works of Compatriot Crocket by re-identifying the Revolutionary War Patriots who are buried in Vermont and to perpetually memorized as many of them as possible by creating and/or maintaining accurate genealogical, historic Military Service and referenced biographical memorials on the Website

In keeping with one of the objects of the Society of Sons of the American Revolution, to mark the scenes of the Revolution by appropriate memorials, the Vermont Society has over the years erected a number of monuments and tablets to memorialize, set in stone to be long remembered, the courageous spirit and fighting qualities of the Vermont Revolutionary War Patriot, the diplomatic sagacity of their leaders and the sites associated with the Revolutionary War History of Vermont (The New Hampshire Grants and the Independent Republic of Vermont 1777-1791).
