Two brothers of my great-grandmother, Susan Young, died while fighting in the Civil War. One was Peter E. Young, who was born in 1834 to Henry and Lavenia Martin Young in Catawba County, North Carolina. Peter enlisted in Burke County on May 10, 1861 as a private. He joined Company E, N.C. 16th Infantry Regiment. Peter died at Gettysburg, Pa., mustering out July 8, 1863. He was 29 years old.
