Yinger Family Participants in the Civil War:

The focus of this section of the web site is on the male descendants of the Germanic immigrant ancestor Johann Paul Jünger who served in the American Civil War. Eight descendants served in various units of Pennsylvania Volunteers based on my research. They were members of the 4th and 5th generation and were therefore great grandchildren and great, great grandchildren of Johann Paul Jünger.  A separate page for each of these Yinger family member Civil War veterans is included in this section of the web site. Links to their individual pages are provided next to each soldier’s name.

Yingers not of our Clan Civil War Service:

While consulting the various sources of documentation for Civil War service by male descendants of Johann Paul Jünger several other male Yingers were uncovered who were not descendants of Johann Paul, in my opinion.  Separate pages are included for each of these individuals with supporting information presented which lead me to conclude they were not members of Johann Paul Jünger's "clan".  Links to their individual pages are provided next to each soldier’s name.
