HUNTSINGER, Peter (1843-1862)- Fayetteville National Cemetery, Fayetteville, Washington, AR, USA.
HUNTSINGER, Peter (1843-1862)- Fayetteville National Cemetery, Fayetteville, Washington, AR, USA.
Although the Huntsinger grave is listed as "R" Huntsinger, we believe it was an error and should have been P Huntsinger for our Peter. His grave is on the left. The stone on the right is for 1st Sgt James Crawford, Co A, 20 Rgmt, Wis Inf, the same unit as our Peter served with and Crawford's death date was Dec 7, 1862, the same date that our Peter died in the Civil War. Peter's stone is on the left.

HUNTSINGER, Peter (1843-1862)- Killed in Civil War; son of Solomon HUNTSINGER (1804-1889) and Sophronia BLUNT (1811-1857).
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).

WISCONSIN CIVIL WAR SOLDIERS killed near Fayetteville, AR in 1862 battles. We believe our Peter Huntsinger (1843-1862), third stone from right, front row, is actually the person buried there- not 'R' Huntsinger as recorded.

The first eight stones from the right, front row, are all Wisconsin Union soldiers. Several of these are marked as Unknown. There are many graves marked as Unknown in this cemetery from that war. (Photo by Barry R Huntsinger, Estherville, Emmet, IA, USA.)
