Thayer's Notes:

a Lt. Mackall's full name and birth data are from his AOG obituary.

[decorative delimiter]

b I am not absolutely certain the linked grave is Lt. Mackall's, but the concourse of the name, date of death, rank, and place of burial make it very likely. Only the date of birth as reported on that page appears to be slightly off: but the Register is often mistaken by a day or two, and the Veterans' Affairs Department records and their further transcriptions are even more subject to error.
