Thayer's Note:

a As with other Confederate officers, Cullum's Register omits his war record, which included spirited service in the artillery at the bombardment of Fort Sumter and fighting at Shiloh as Chief of Artillery for Gen. Ruggles' division. There once was a good page at TXGenWeb covering his war record and some of his personal life as well, but it has been deleted and I find nothing to replace it with.
