Confederate States of America Army
of Owen Waggoner: January 2007
Peter Yont, Company E. The roster does not
have a Peter Yont in Company E. It does have Sergeant Patrick Alonzo Yount
who died in Washington D.C. and probably like the other men was buried
in Arlington. I will leave it to you to determine how to handle whether
Peter Yont was really Patrick Yount. Here is the info on Sergeant Yount:
Born May 1, 1843. Resided in Catawba County where he enlisted at age 19,
July 4, 1862, for the war. Mustered in as a Sergeant. Reported present
through October 31, 1863. Wounded in the head (fractured skull) and captured
at or near Rappahannock Station, Virginia, on or about November 7, 1863.
Hospitalized at Washington D.C., November 9, 1863. Died in hospital
at Washington on November 20, 1863, of wounds.
