Here are a few more tidbits I picked up doing a ggogle search:

Located in the village and town of Lyons, Wayne County, N.Y.
Part 2

OFFINGER Martin, Co B N.Y. Mounted Rifles Vol., Sep. 9, 1831-May 21, 1918
1st NY Mounted Rifles
Nickname -
Recruitment area:
o Company B - NYC
Dates of Service:
o Mustered in - summer, 1862
o Mustered out - Sept. 6, 1865, received designation, 4th Provisional Regiment, NY Vol. Cavalry


Sgt. Francis FEILING, - Co B, lst N.Y. Mounted Rifles

New York Civil War Soldiers Buried at the National Cemetery in Fortress Monroe, Virginia

Wells, J. R., Private, 1st NY Mounted Rifles, Co. B, died Mar. 18, 1862

Reading the first entry (I believe transcribed from your uncle's tombstone) it says Co. B NY Mounted Rifles. It doesn't say first or second mounted rifles. Are you sure it is the first? There is also a lot out there on the second as well as other companies of the first.
