In the Pension Application Nancy Welborn states that he (Wiley) was sick with an unknown ailment in Cheraw, SC and died in March or April of 1865 (see copy of Pension app. above). However, in And Were the Glory of Their Times, Herbert O. Chambers states that Wiley C. Welborn died in the Camden, SC, 1st South Carolina hospital March 21, 1865. further research is needed to determine if he is one of the soldiers buried in the Old Quaker Cemetery along with men from the Wayside Hospital in Camden, SC.
