John N. Coder was born 13 November 1843 in Danville, Montour County, PA. He was the son of GEORGE H. CODER and ALIDA PITNER. His family moved to Shamokin, Northumberland Couty in 1850.

John was wounded in the leg “while charging the enemy” at the battle of Cedar Mountain, Virginia, on 9 August 1862 and died at Wolf St. Hospital, Alexandria, VA, on 19 September 1862. He is buried in the Veteran’s Circle at the Shamokin Cemetery. John was 19 years old at the time of his death.

I have a great, great uncle, Mathias Wyrzykowski, who was in Company K too. He was wounded at Cedar Mountain and died of his wounds. Where did you get your information from?

I got some information from the Shamokin Herald newspaper (on microfilm). By using Ancestry.com I got the card for the pension application his mother Alida Pitner Coder filed. I wrote to the National Archives & Administration and got his records. There is also some information on Fold3.
