Peter Carl was born to Samuel and Eve Carl about 1840 in East Liberty, Summit County, Ohio. In April 1861, he joined the Ohio Infantry and served until August.

Peter married Lavina Kepler in August 1862 and then entered the service again. His son, Peter Carl, Jr. was born in March of 1862, and as far as we know, Peter Sr. never met his baby boy. Peter Sr. was shot in the thigh July 1, 1863 at the Battle of Gettysburg and died from his wounds about three months later in the military hospital at Davids' Island, New York.

Among his belongings recorded at his death was a "tintype." This is the daguerrotype that you see on this page. It was in his pocket during the Battle of Gettysburg and returned to his widow, Lavina Kepler Carl, after his death. It was this daguerrotype that began my interest in researching our family history.
