Need help with Jacob L. Walter

Hi, I need help finding out Jacob L. Walter's regiment. He was born in 1826 in Turbotville, Northumberland, Pennsylvania he died in 1912 in Clayton, Lenawee, Michigan. The record of the graveyard he was buried in says he was a soldier but does not give the regiment. He arrived in Michigan sometime between 1880 and 1900. He was living in Turbotville, Northumberland, Pennsylvania in 1860 but he does not appear to have been in any of the regiments raised from that county. Also, it appears that Jacob Walter was a very common name and there are a lot of guys to go through.

Jacob. L. Walter married Rebecca Schaeffer, but his wife died in 1902 so no widow's pension would exist.
