Hi Amanda,
Your Peter Ransom Price was b) 10/12/1833 and did serve in the War Between the States in Compnay F, 56th NC Infantry. He was married to Margaret Ann Proctor. They had five children after the war and the Chancey M. Price was the third b) June 1872. He married Ella Pamela Bridges and they had seven children.

Here are a few notes on his war service:
From the book, "North Carolina Troops, 1861 - 1865, A Roster, Vol. XIII, Pg. 655, by Weymouth T. Jordan:

Price, Peter, Private
Company F, 56th NC Infantry

Resided in Cleveland County and enlisted in Wake County at age 28, July 8, 1862, for the war. Reported present through February, 1864. Wounded in the chest and thigh at Plymouth on April 18 - 20, 1864. Returned to duty prior to July 1, 1864. reported present through December 1864. Survived the war. (May have been wounded in the thigh at the Battle of the Crater, near Petersburg, Virginia, July 30, 1864.)

James Carson Elliott, a Private in Company F, 56th NC Infantry confirms that Peter Price was shot in the thigh as mentioned above, in his book "The Southern Soldier Boy."

"Peter Price, who had been shot through the lung at Plymouth, was wounded in the thigh as they fell back, ..."
Hope this helps.
