Summary of Changes


Names of men who sources indicate belonged to the regiment, but where companies are not given. The source of the name is given in the heading; if a second source also contains the name, the source is indicated numerically.

From Compiled Service Records

R.E. Mason [1] Josiah D. Roberts [1]

From Tennesseans in the Civil War

It seems likely that many of these men did not serve with Russell's 20th Regiment, but one of the other "20th Cavalry" units. Those I believe I can justify assigning to Nixon's 20th Cavalry appear only on the Other 20th Regiments page and have been eliminated from this list. Home counties in this listing are also from the "other" 20th microfilm.

Greer's Regiment

The compiled service records include POW records of a number of men who listed their unit as Greer's Regiment (or a similar variant). Ingmire's compilation of Confederate POW deaths lists a number of these men as part of Greer's Texas Battalion; whether this is a mistake in the records or another unit is not presently known.

From Other Sources

Milton Scott Martin [1,9] T.B. Parrish, Co. A [1]    

The Dyer County History Page says that Co. E was Capt. Tom Skinner's Company.

Tennesseans in the Civil War also contains at least one name, Robert L. Raines, listed as belonging to "Bell's Cavalry, Co. A". This may refer to the partisan unit T.H. Bell commanded during the summer and fall of 1863.

A.T. Gay's Command

G.W. Taylor (Dyer and Moore, 1915-22/85, pp. 2031-32) lists the following as the men he served with under A.T. Gay during 1864 and 1865. These have been matched with names from Company E of the Consolidated Regiment as given by Tennesseans in the Civil War.

D.A. "Dave" Ballington (Berlington, Bullington) [1,12], [9] as Bullington Robert S. "Bob" Barnes [1,9,12] W.D. "Bill" Bobett (Bobbitt) [1,9] John B. Branch [1,12]
Bill Coleman G.N. Davidson [1,9,12] Robert E. "Bob" Edwards [1,9,12] Green Fulghum [1,12]
Capt. A.T. "Tom" Gay [1] Bill Lorance Fountain Love [1] as F.E.P. Love, [12] N.L. McKee [1,12]
