Frederick "Fritz" Martin co K 7th {a Inf

I am looking for info concerning Pvt Frederick "Fritz" Martin, Co K. 7th Pa Inf. He is the soldier supposedly shot in Martinsburg, WV,on July 4, 1861, by 17-year-old Belle Boyd. However, at his funeral on July 8 in Green Hill Cemetery the pastor made no mention of him being shot and remarked to those there to be careful with their health. One source has him being mustered out in July, 1861, but it is in error
