    Indiv Note "Peter Leysen, the father of Jacob P. Leysen, emigrated to the United States about 1855 and located on what is now Park Place in Muscatine. He followed dairy farming as a means of livelihood and passed away in this county when sixty-eight years of age. Both he and his wife, who died at the age of sixty-four, were devoted and faithful communicants of the Catholic church. During the period of hostilities between the north and the south Peter Leysen defended the interests of the Union as sergeant of Company D, Thirty-fifth Iowa Volunteer Infantry, serving until the close of the war. He participated in a number of important engagements and was severely wounded in the hip and thigh in the battle of Chicot Lake, Arkansas, on the 7th of June, 1864. At the time of his discharge, on the 13th of July, 1865, he was a member of Company A, Fifteenth Regiment Veteran Reserve Corps. After returning from the war he resumed the pursuits of civil life, being numbered among the substantial agriculturists and respected citizens here until called to his final rest. Unto him and his wife were born eight children, six sons and two daughters, namely: Jacob P., of this review; Anton, who is deceased; John; Charles; Joseph; Mary; Julia, the wife of C. T. Edwards ; and Peter, who died in infancy."
