Samuel White
Birth: Dec. 3, 1840
Illinois, USA
Death: Feb. 9, 1909

Military (from 10 Jul 1861 to 26 Feb 1864): His application for a disability pension is on file, and that of his widow who received partial benefits after his death.

His certificate of discharge states: Samuel White, a Corporal, was mustered into the 2nd Regiment of the Ill. Cavalry Volunteers on 10 Jul 1861, to serve for 3 years. He was 5 ft 10 in tall, dark complexion, black eyes, dark hair, and his occupation was that of farmer. Discharge paper said that he was suffering from "sore eyes" caused by the discharge of carbine either in the hands of a comrade or rebel in a skirmish not far from Milliken's Bend, Louisiana, about the middle of April, 1863. He was stationed in New Orleans at the time of his discharge, 26 Feb 1864.

His application for disability pension took over 20 years to process and required many affidavits before it was granted, due to misspelled name, missing infirmary records, etc. He was granted $17/month in 1906 and when he died 3 years later, his widow was granted $12/month until her death in 1915.
