His compiled service records follow.

The surname on the grave marker should be Bourg. This name, handwritten on Louisiana census forms, can easily be mistaken for Brung.

To illustrate, here is a page of the Louisiana state census for 1860 from Ancestry.com that includes a Bourg family, and following is a section of that page is shown here. Not yet sure that this is our Jan Pierre Bourg. Note also how the name Pierre can appear in handwriting as Piene.
