Biographical Information

Samuel H. Whited was born in New York, in 1808. At the beginning of the Civil War, he and his wife Sarah lived with their family in Joliet, Illinois, where Samuel and his sons worked as painters. Already in his early 50s at the outbreak of the war, Samuel lied about his age in order to enlist in the Mechanic Fusiliers. He later transferred to the 15th Illinois Cavalry, serving until January 1865. Samuel's sons, including Jesse, served in other Union units.
