William E Penyan (Pinion) - 4th Sergeant   
My documents show him to be a 5th Sergeant, but I was unable to find such rank in the above selections. He was wounded at Sharpsburg, Md (Antietam) on 9/17/62, and received a second wound (I believe at Bristoe Station, though not sure). After the war he applied for a pension. On the pension he claims that one arm is virtually useless due to war wound.
He was born and lived all his life in Union County, N.C. He died in 1916 of 'Brights Disease'. He is buried in the Trulight Church Cemetery near Unionville, N.C. beside 2nd wife.

Hiram Everhart - Private   
Hiram Everhart was my 3rd Great Grandfather. He enlisted on 8 August 1862 in Davidson County, North Carolina, at the age of 30, into the 48th North Carolina Regiment, Company K.
He deserted on 15 August 1862, and returned to duty on 10 March 1863.
Hiram was wounded in the jaw on 14 October 1863, at the Battle of Bristoe Station. He died in the hospital in Gordonsville, Virginia on 20 October 1863 of a hemorrhage.
From what I understand, Hiram was buried on the grounds of the Gordonsville Receiving Hospital, and later moved to Maplewood Cemetery in Gordonsville, Virginia.
