Obituary

DEATHS

DIKE – In Pittsford, on the 19th day of September last, John W. Dike, aged 22 years, youngest son of Cyrus and Sarah Dike.

He was a soldier of the 10th Vt. Reg’t, Co. C, beloved and respected by that band of youthful patriots, and was wounded in one of the many battles which were fought to preserve a people’s government – which wound, and diseases contracted there, probably, caused his death.

"Bound to no sect, he took no private road," yet, he died as he lived – an humble, unassuming christian. Leaving in sadness his beloved companion, his relatives and all his associates.
