Muster Rolls, Company A, Fifth Texas Cavalry, Microfilm edition in Archives of the Nesbitt Memorial Library, Columbus; Weimar Mercury, July 16, 1915; Official Records, series 1, vol. 26, pp. 212, 857, 878; Colorado County Probate Records, File No. 438: Stephen M. Wells. Though the exact date and place of Wells' death is unknown, he is known to have been in the Fort Bliss hospital in June 1862, and he certainly died before November 25, 1862, when the first of his probate papers was filed, leading one to the conclusion that he died at Fort Bliss.
