Peter Yont – Confederate States of America Army

Date Icon Publish Date

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.
