Seeking information on James Snipes from Marion County, SC. Reportedly killed in Battle of Franklin ? Reports say he was brought home to SC for burial, but that seems doubtful to me. I did not see him listed as buried in the cemetery in Franklin. Reportedly 10th Regiment from SC. Phil Snipes | snipeph[at]gmail.com
Brigade information for Franklin
Brigadier General Arthur Middleton Manigault
- 10th South Carolina Infantry

Phil, I did find this on CWD. telling history[at]yahoo.com
The 1860 census for Marion County, SC finds a James Snipes, but he is age 60.
The 1860 census shows a James Snipes from Chesterfield Co, SC; age 22. He would be of military age of course.
