Hi Tom, My name is Jim Shepherd and I had an ancestor in the 12th Ms. Co. I. He was Lt. William Carter White a physican from West Point. He is buried in West Point at Greenwood Cem. and his tombstone is inscribed with his rank and unit no. I am looking for info on his brother Peyton H. White, who according to a family bible was killed at Shilo. I have not found any record of him in a Ms. unit. Believe he may have been in the 8th Ala. Calv. Do you have any info on the 8th. Peyton would have also been listed as being from West Point and was about 20 Yrs. old at his death. Please reply to Thanks, Jim
