Col. Dolarhyde mentions tragic events from the Battle of Antietam, in the US Civil War, and that he has not recovered from that. It's an 'in-passing' comment around the campfire, but could totally trigger PTSD. Still, not explicitly so.

It’s off screen but you hear the sound of a dog yowling - it’s assumed that he died but he doesn’t.

Not on screen, and nobody related to the main characters, but the old preacher dies onscreen and he can be taken for a father figure.
