eHiram White, Jr - Private   
Hiram was the brother of my gr gr grandfather. Hiram and four brothers belonged to the Spartan Rifles from Spartanburg, SC. If I have my info right, in 1862 when most of the company went into the Palmetto Sharpshooters (his four brothers did), Hiram stayed in the 5th SC. Relatives have it that he was in. One source says he stayed in the 5th S.C. when Jenkins formed the Palmetto SharpShooters. Killed in 1862, Battle of 'Antietum' (Sharpsburg), Md. Another source says he was captured in the defense of Columbia, S.C. in 1865 and died from exposure. This info came from Ed Trammel, whose wife’s sister married Wm. Joseph White, descended from Rufus Belton White. Hiram White is buried in Elmwood Cemetary, Columbia, S.C..
