* Note: Rosters were transcribed from two separate sources. Some name spellings varied. The Arkansas Union Soldiers Pension Application Index had even different spelling for a few individuals. I made spelling changes only when reasonably certain, with accuracy paramount. In a few cases, I listed more than one variation in spelling.
