      Record North Carolina Troops 1861-1865 A Roster Vol VI Infantry by the North Carolina State Division of Archives and History, 1977, Page 187, lists, "Charles E. Peterson, born Franklin County, Maine and was by occupation a machinist prior to enlisting in Beaufort Co. at age 38."
      In the Franklin Journal (local newspaper in Maine), "Charles E. Peterson of Freeman b. about 1822 d. Jan 11 1868 @ 46y in Washington NC of Typhoid."
      In a March 1868 petition, Jacob Swindell, as administrator of Charles E. Peterson's estate, petitioned the Beaufort County, North Carolina Superior Court to sell lands for the care of Charles E. and Martha (Swindell) Peterson's 3 children - Edwin, Benjamin F. and Lucy Peterson, In the petition it states that the 'widows dower does not apply' as Martha is deceased.

      Charles E. PETERSON and Martha A. SWINDLE were married on 16 Nov 1851.25 Report of Marriages 1851-1868 Beaufort County, North Carolina by the Beaufort County Genealogy Society - "Peterson, Chs. E. and Martha A. Swindle married 16 Nov 1851." Martha A. SWINDLE25 was born about 1834 in North Carolina. She died before Mar 1868. As noted in a March 1868 estate administrator petition it appears Martha died before March 1868 and since Charles E. is recorded dying from typhoid it is quite possible also did.
