Muster Rolls, Company A, Fifth Texas Cavalry, Microfilm edition in Archives of the Nesbitt Memorial Library, Columbus; Compiled Service Records of Confederate Soldiers who Served in Organizations from the State of Texas, National Archives Microfilm Publication No. 323, Roll 32; Theophilus Noel, A Campaign From Santa Fe to the Mississippi; Being a History of the Old Sibley Brigade (Raleigh: Charles R. Sanders, Jr., 1961), pp. 132, 142-143. Noel states that Shaw was killed at Fort Butler on June 28, 1863 and that Kindred was killed at Yellow Bayou in Louisiana on May 18, 1864. He also reports, inaccurately, that David Hubbard was killed at Latourche in July 1863, when in fact he died in a hospital in February 1862 of wounds suffered at Valverde; and that Robert H. Carter, Martin Pankey, and John Stolts were killed at Valverde when in fact all three were wounded but survived. Having pointed out these inaccuracies, it should also be stated that no source other than Noel has been discovered which confirms that Shaw and Kindred were killed in action, or that David, Newsom, Seymour, Silvey, and Terrell died of disease.
