Peter Knutson - Unknown   
Peter or Peder Knutson was my great grandmothers brother. Peters full name was Peter Knutson Brye but, when he served during the civil war he was listed as Peter Knutson. Knutson May also have been spelled Knutson. I do know he was killed ar Rivers Bridge along the Saulkahatchee River in South Carolina. He was exhumed some time after the war and his remains were rein turned at Beaufort National Cemetery in Beaufort SC. The problem is, he is in a grave marked unknown. Reports state he was decapitated by a cannon shell on February 2, 1865. We think he is in Section 49, Grave number 8743. The tombstone says unknown and has two others in the same grave. We are looking for a picture of him and more history on Company K, 25th Wisconsin Infantry. Please help. Thank you.
