Thayer's Notes:

a Col. Kiehl's birthplace is from the memorial article and biographical sketch at West Point Association of Graduates.

[decorative delimiter]

b Col. Kiehl died after the publication of Vol. IX (1950), the most recent volume of the Supplements to Cullum's Register available to me, which may also be the most recent volume in the public domain. The date and place of his death are from the WPAOG memorial article.
