Thayer's Notes:

a As with other Confederate officers, Cullum's Register omits his war record. It must have been very low-key: I've been unable to find anything.

b So Vol. II of the Register. In the Supplements, Vol. IV has no notice on him but there is no  by his name to indicate that he had died; and the later volumes are as transcribed above.

[decorative delimiter]

c I've been unable to find his obituary in the AOG Reports for 1914, 1915, or 1916.
