Thayer's Notes:

a As with other Confederate officers, Cullum's Register omits his war record: according to the Southern Historical Society Papers he was appointed Colonel Sep. 1, 1861, and commanded the 2d Regiment, North Carolina Cavalry (formerly 19th North Carolina Volunteers), Army of Northern Virginia.

b Cullum gives no death data; the 1910 and later Supplements to the Register mark him as having died, but offer no other information.
