Looking for information on James Snipes, 10th SC Infantry, supposedly killed at Franklin

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

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.
