Thayer's Notes:

a Col. Cabell's birthplace is from the memorial article at West Point Association of Graduates.

[decorative delimiter]

b Here, the Register actually spells the name Duval; in Vol. VII, DuVal, which seems the likeliest to me; in the AOG obituary of his father Indicates a West Point graduate and gives his Class.William Cabell, the name is spelled Du Val.
