Hi. The info on Matthew D. Dycher, was found at the web site of New York State Military Museum and Veteran Research Center.

The info on Anne was found at the web site of Statutes at Large, it a library of Congress web site.

If you want to read more about the First, look for a book called The First New York ( Lincoln ) Cavalry, by William H. Beach, Publ. 1902. All this info can be found on line.
