Hello one of the reasons I joined was that I have been collecting Maine Civil War Antiques for over 25 years. I have a lot from the 1st Maine Cavalry and would like to find a relative to share information.
My 2nd great uncle, Horace Buckley, was in Co. M, 1st Maine Cavalry. Born 1845 Maine and died 26 Apr 1866 in Orono, Maine. I do have copies of his Civil War records. He never married.
Hello Nancy, I don't have a lot on him in the 1st Maine Cavalry. I know on 10/20/1863 he enlisted as a private in Co. M 1st Maine Heavy Artillery. He mustered out on 9/1/1866 he is also listed as being mustered out on 9/1/1865.I will check my 1st Maine Cavalry discharge papers I have and if I have his we can learn a lot more. Thank you, Glenn Gagne
He had 2 brothers that also fought in the Civil War. Charles A. Buckley, Co. B 12th Regt. Maine Infantry and my great grandfather, William Buckley, Co. F & B, 12th Regt. Maine Infantry. I also have their records. I found a lot about my Buckley family in these records.
