Peter served as a private in the 208th Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, Company G (Civil War).

Additional information courtesy of Dennis Brandt:

He married Anna Herrold October 27, 1852, in Snyder County and fathered Simon (b. @1856), William (b. @1858), Sarah (b. 1860), Methuselah Ellsworth (b. 11/28/61), John Albert (b. 09/29/63), Viola (b. @1866), Barbara Ann (b. 11/30/68 - married Lewis Newman), and Levi (b. 02/28/73). In 1860, he was a laborer and boatman living in Chapman Township, Snyder County, Pennsylvania, and stood 5' 6" tall with dark hair and gray eyes. Both the 1860 and 1870 censuses imply a birth year of ca. 1834 or 1835 and list his name as "Kerling," as does the 1863 draft registration.

A Civil War veteran, he enlisted and mustered into federal service at Harrisburg September 9, 1864, as a private with Co. G, 208th Pennsylvania Infantry, and honorably discharged with his company June 1, 1865.
