Brickwall - Jeremiah Dike

By Pamela Pattison Lash (updated 24 May 2012)

The man is Jeremiah Dike, whom it is recorded, was born in Williams County, OH.  Nothing to date has been found in our county records to verify this.  Another mystery exists in that he is NOT found yet in any census before 1850.  If you have any info on this man, email me and I'll pass it along to a researcher who would like to know more about his ancestry.

Here's what we know so far:

Regimental History

Seventeenth Cavalry.-Col., John L. Beveridge; Lieut.-
Cols., Dennis J. Hynes, Hiram Hillard; Majs., Hiram Hillard,
Lucius C. Matlack, Philip E. Fisher, Jesse D. Butts, Charles
Parker. This regiment was organized under special authority
from the war department, issued Sept. 11, 1863, to Hon. John
F. Farnsworth. The rendezvous was established at St. Charles,
Kane county, and eight companies were mustered in on Jan. 22,
1864, for three years. Four other companies were mustered in
and the organization of the regiment completed Feb. 12, 1864.
By the close of the following April, 650 horses had been
brought in by the men under instruction from the cavalry
bureau and sold to the government. On May 3, the regiment
moved under orders from the general-in-chief to report to
Maj.-Gen. Rosecrans, commanding the Department of Missouri, at
St. Louis. For a period of 4 months the three battalions of
the regiment were separate and remote from each other, their
duties being mainly escort and provost guard duty. Among the
fights engaged in by the 2nd battalion may be named one near
Allen on the North Missouri railroad in July, one near the
Porsche hills, and a third near Rocheport. The service of the
regiment was wholly within the Department of the Missouri, and
while it did not experience any severe engagements, it
performed hard and valuable services in frequent skirmishes
with the enemy, in routing guerrilla parties, and in long and
weary marches. Its last important work was accompanying the
commissioners who went to Fort Smith to treat with the
Indians, at the great council held in Sept., 1865. It was
mustered out in Nov. and Dec., 1865, at Leavenworth, Kan.
