    HUNTSINGER, Peter (1843-1862)- Killed in Civil War; son of Solomon HUNTSINGER (1804-1889) and Sophronia BLUNT (1811-1857).
    Inscription: R Huntsinger, WIS. We believe the R should have been a P. Records at Fayetteville National Cemetery confirm that this person was a Private from A Company, 20th Infantry, 20th Regiment, Wisconsin Infantry, all of which is also the description for our Peter Huntsinger. Note the "R" on Huntsinger and the first letter on the stone. We believe it to be a "P" followed by a period. There is no chisel mark on the stone for the downleg of the R. These Civil War bodies were removed from mass graves at the direction of President Lincoln and placed in individual plots with stones. Their identity came from letters or notes in their pockets or on their person. Military "dog tags" did not exist at the time. There are many unknown soldiers buried at the Fayetteville National Cemetery. (Photo by Barry R Huntsinger, Estherville, Emmet, IA, USA).
