Wilbur Rogan Grave
Last week, I spent 3 consecutive days and about four hours total in very hot weather, searching for Mr. Rogan's grave. Finally, with assistance from my brother Mark, his friend Dave and Richard, who worked at the cemetery, we located the grave that was compeltely covered under at least six inches of sod. We only found it by digging into the sod with a sharp stick and we stunned to find a gravestone AND that it was Mr. Rogan's. NBC News had a story on Negro Leaguers forgotten graves today. Wilbur's was certainly forgotten! If anyone runs into problems finding this grave, contact me and I'll let you know of my experience.
