Birth: Apr. 14, 1840
Belmont County

Tennessee, USA

Peter is the son of Charles Brandon and Sarah Barker.

He enlisted October 28, 1861, a Union soldier with Company E, Ohio 77th Infantry and died at Fallen Timbers, Battle of Shiloh.

There were an estimated 1,754 Union soldiers killed, 8,408 wounded, 2,885 missing & captured = 13,047 total casualties.


I am told that the dead were buried in place by Sherman's men before they retreated back to Pittsburg Landing along the Tennessee River.
They were later buried at Shiloh National Cemetery as 'unknown' soldiers.


Note: Peter's birth date is given as January 14, 1840 on an 1885 pension application statement.
