Per FAG Contributor Patricia Saumell (who has passed away):

Horace Arvis Pike is my maternal great-grandfather. His wife, my great grandmother and four of their six children are buried in the Tioga Cemetery in Owego, New York. The oldest child is buried in Hart, Oceana County, Michigan and my grandmother, Jennie Isabel Pike Kinder, is buried in Mountain Grove Cemetery in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

My mother and her sister took the picture of the stone when they visited his grave in Dayton, Ohio in the 1980s.

NOTE: Headstone indicates that Horace Pike was in Co H 2nd NY HORSE ARTILLERY. However military documents found on Ancestry website show he was in the CAVALRY. Thank you to Gary Spargo for bringing that to my attention.

The following information is per various Civil War Military records and US Nat'l Homes for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers found on

Enlistment: 8-29-1862 in Islip, NY in NY Co H Cavalry.
Wound: shot in the right hand on June 9, 1863 at Brandy Station, VA (per US Nat'l Homes for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers) and was hospitalized in Wash DC. Discharged in June of 1865, he reenlisted and was transferred to Co H 2 NY Calvary on 9-1-1865.
Soldiers Home of Dayton, Ohio: Oct 10, 1878 he entered the Soldiers Home due to his war wound and rheumatism.
Death: died Feb 11, 1882 of paralysis.

I believe the 1861 date on his photo in uniform should be 1862.
