The Eleventh Cavalry was made up of companies from Iowa, New Jersey, Ohio, New York, and the balance from Pennsylvania. The Colonel was Josiah Harlem, of Philadelphia. The regiment was originally known as Harlem's Light Cavalry. A few months later it was attached to the Pennsylvania State organization and received the official designation it ever after retained.

Dixon, of Fronheiser street, this city, and Mrs. Archie Griffin, of Wilkinsburg, together with a sister, Mrs. Sarah Shaffer, of Roaring Spring, and three brothers -- D.
