1900 census lists his birthdate as July 1841. Prior the the Civil War, he worked as a farm-hand on his father Frederick Trion's farm in Jackson (later Washington) Township, Northumberland County, Pa.

Peter Trion was a Civil War veteran, having served in the same company as George B. Kiehl. A year after their discharge, George Kiehl married his sister Lavina.

I believe this picture is Peter Trion who appears in the 1890 Special Veterans Census living in Shamokin. The reverse has "499 Rake" written in pencil. This was probably "Raker." Cornelius Raker was a popular photographer in Shamokin who retired in 1890.

I have this original photo. It is on a stiff paper card stock which has a browinish tone to it. The photo is approx. 5 x 6 inches in size. Unfortunately, someone in my family used a pencil to "restore" his lips. It has right-angled corners and no border. Is this a cabinet card? Please contact me if you think you can identify this type of photograph and when it was taken. The picture was kept by the family of his sister Lavina who moved to Philadelphia. The picture probably dates from about 1882 when Peter Trion, witness, signed George B. Kiehl's initial claim for a military pension.

January 1898: Peter Trion was awarded $8 military pension (Phila. Inquirer, Feb. 4, 1898, pg. 7.

1900 Federal Census: single. Born July 1841. Occupation: Hostler [stableman]. Boarding with Charter Brown, hotel keeper, at 109 Shamokin St., Shamokin, Pa.

At the time of his death, he was a hostler at the Eagle hotel in Shamokin (1901-03 Boyd's Directory, 227).
