Inf: Sam Schrum. . (12) Burial Marker. Event Notes Note (1) Birth date calculated from death record. Note (2) Died of indigestion. Note (3) Place of burial is not indicated though likely it is Brunstetter Cemetery. Note (4) If the 1850 census is correct Peter likely arrived before 1838. Note (5) At the time of his Naturalization, Mahoning County had not yet been formed partially from Trumbull County, . Note (6) Death record incorrectly gives his age as 45 and Austintown, Ohio as his POB. Note (7) License applied for on 21 May 1860 by Thomas' father. Both sets of parents gave permission. Re. page 134. Married by W.P. Callahan, JP Note (8) Gravesite appears to be unmarked. Note (9) Application made by Thomas Redmond on 30 Sep 1867. Re: Register Page 380. Note (10) Both Peter and his father are listed as having been born in Clarksburg, PA on the death certificate. While it is known this is incorrect for Peter Senior, it may be correct for Peter C. although he consistantly gives Ohio as his birthplace. The 1850 census though indicates Peter C. and his siblings were all b. in PA. This was while the family lived in Mercer County and Peter C. was only a year old. Note (11) Sec 3. Row 13.
