Thayer's Note:

a As with other Confederate officers, Cullum's Register omits his war record. according to the Southern Historical Society Papers he was a Lieut.‑Colonel of the 8th Arkansas Infantry, which does not match the information on the page at Find-a‑Grave, linked to above; although the two are not mutually exclusive.
