Who was the Fagan who died at the Battle of Charleston?

I'm looking for a Fagan who was hired as a substitute for Graves Wapshott in 1779. Fagan died fighting at the Battle of Charleston in South Carolina or as a prisoner of war afterwards. Fagan was in the 3rd Virginia Regiment and was living in Hampshire County, Virginia when he agreed to substitute for Graves Wapshott. Wapshott delivered Fagan to a captain Robert Higgins. Wapshott could not recall Fagan's first name when he applied for a pension for his own service in November of 1832. Does anyone know anything about a man named Fagan who died at the Battle of Charleston?
