Pvt. Reuben H. White
Co. D
19th Tex Inf
Jul 23, 1863

bur. U.S. National Cemetery
Vicksburg, Miss.

Reuben H. White enlisted 27 Jun 1862 at Marion, Davis Co., Texas. He signed on for three years or the war.

For the muster of Sep & Oct of 1862, it is noted that he was detailed as a nurse at Rondo, Arkansas, but on the next muster roll, for Nov & Dec 1862, he is marked as "Present."

On 7 Jun 1863, he was "Missing in action, Millikins Bend," Louisiana (see card below left). He suffered a gunshot wound ("V. S.") to his right ankle and was taken to the Van Buren (Conval.) U.S.A. General Hospital at Millikens Bend, La., where he died 23 Jul 1863 (see card below right).

Reuben H. White was mistakenly moved to the U. S. National Cemetery in Vicksburg when the Union soldiers were re-interred there (possibly because he died in a Union hospital).

Other CSA soldiers, Charles B. Brantley of Arkansas and Robert T. Skelton of the 37th Miss. Inf., were also mistakenly interred in the U.S. National Cemetery at Vicksburg.


Thanks to James Earl "Sam" Price for bringing this soldier to our attention.
