Thayer's Notes:

a As with other Confederate officers, Cullum's Register omits his war record. It must have been very low-key; the Southern Historical Society Papers merely records him in the Confederate Army, but gives neither his rank nor his assignment. If you can add to that, I'd be glad to hear from you, of course.
