Thayer's Notes:

a As with other Confederate officers, Cullum's Register omits his war record: the deficiency is made good, among other places online, on the Find-a‑Grave page linked above.

b His tombstone (q.v.) gives Aug. 16; it is modern, however. I don't know what the source of the information might be.
