Hiram and his wife were originally buried at Ball Point Cemetery on Carr's Fork in Knott County , but this cemetery was one of the many which were moved to make way for the construction of Carr's Fork Lake. Hiram and Anna now rest in the Carr's Fork Memorial Cemetery.

Hiram Stamper is often referred to as 'Captain Hiram' because he attained the rank of Captain in the service of the Confederate States of America. He enlisted in the 5th Kentucky regiment on November 1, 1861 at Whitesburg, Kentucky and served in the 13th Kentucky regiment from September to October 1862. He was captured at the Battle of Leatherwood in Perry County, Kentucky on October 17, 1862 and later exchanged. He was again captured at Gladeville, Virginia on July 7, 1863.
