Much of Company B of the 2nd New York Cavalry was recruited and enlisted in Newton on August 5th, 1861. I am sure that most of them were not from Newton itself, but the majority were from Sussex County and a few from PA and NY. I am searching for the dates of death and the burial places for the following soldiers who were Newton recruits (except for Shafer who was enlisted in Deckertown). The number in parenthesis is the soldiers age at enlistment.

Alexander Bishop (19), Jacob Bline (23), Samuel T. Buckley (23), John S. Bunn (26), Morgan Burns (26), William H. Carmer (21), Andrew J. Courtwright (24), Obadiah Crane (22), James N.

Hewitt (??), William Hogencamp (23), James Holdren (aka: Holden) (23), Malvin Hotalier (aka: Hotalen) (21), Alexander Jacobus (36), John Kaufman (19), Adam Kitchen (23), James D. Langdon (17), John Lott (24), William Lyon (aka: Logan) (24), Harvey Mains (aka: Maines) (18), Patrick McCormick (35), David Mindrey (aka: Monday) (22), George H. (aka: Kinnear S.)
