Biography

MYRON M. DAVIS enlisted from Warren, his native town. He was 6 ft. 1/2 in. in height and thus belonged to the tall squad on the right of the company. Early in our service he received an injury which incapacitated him for long marches and as his difficulty grew worse rather than better, he was sent to the general hospital the 6th of January, 1863, and was discharged for disability at Mount Pleasant hospital February 4, 1863. After a long struggle he was able to establish his claim to a moderate pension. He is a blacksmith by trade and resides in Moretown but has not been able to be in active business for some years. He married Laura Palmer and they have one son, Julius D., who carries on an extensive tin and hardware business at Waitsfield.
