I am hoping to find a photo of Peter Jacob, Civil War veteran.
Peter Jacob is my gg-gf. He was born Mar 3, 1827 in Hesse, Germany. He married Eva Katherine Oehlenschläger, Mar 23, 1850 in Rimbach, Starkenburg, Hessen, Germany and then emigrated to Terre Haute, Vigo Co., IN, arriving in New York City, Aug 7, 1857.
He enlisted Aug 24, 1861 in Co E, 32nd Regiment, Indiana Infantry [“All German Regiment”]. He was discharged Sep 7, 1864 and subsequently was killed in a sawmill accident in Terre Haute Oct 8, 1869.
According to family lore, a photo of Peter Jacob in his uniform was taken shortly after his discharge and return home in 1864. I confirmed with a living family member that this photo definitely existed, but has been missing for at least 10 years. I have checked the Vigo County Public Library & the Indiana state Archives with no luck.
I am hoping that somebody else may have been able acquire this photo or make a copy of it sometime over the years.
Thanks for any help or clues.
