I have a record of Peter Bale born in Germany 2/24/1852 departed France to come to the US. He died April 11, 1896 in Jackson County, Kansas City, MO and is buried at Union Cemetery.I represent the Union Cemetery Historical Society and we have a grave marker placed by the veterans.The photo of the tombstone can be found at "find a grave". We are trying to confirm he was in the Civil War as a Private Company D, 6th MO inf. I did locate a Peter Bale who was on furlough Feb 12, 1889 from Ft. Leavenworth. I hope this helps you with your research.
