Peter Acorn, died 9/12/1882 at Paterson, New Jersey
Peter Acorn, died 9/12/1882 at Paterson, New Jersey and is buried in Cedar Lawn Cemetery there.
He was supposedly a Civil War veteran, but the only soldiers with this name served in the Confederate States Army.
It is possible that he served under an alias, but I have no way to find this out.
Can anyone help me to find his military service, Union or Confederate?
I am not related to him.
