As for the strengths of the army during this period, I should note that the O.R.s provide numbers only for July 10th and July 31st. This is somewhat problematic, as July 31st is after Walker's Division is disbanded. In addition, I have no numbers for G. W. Smith's Militia. Thus, before I make my chart, I want to show what information I can glean from Castel's Decision in the West, Earl J. Hess' The Battle of Peachtree Creek, Craig Symonds' Stonewall of the West, and Daniel Sutherland's article on Daniel Govan, to give what information I can regarding details on Confederate units in this time.
Hess, in the Confederate OoB he lists, places the engaged strength of Hardee and Stewart at Peachtree Creek at 26000 men, with around 2500 casualties; he estimates Hardee had 15000 men while Stewart had 11000.
Hess gives troops strength for the following divisions, brigades, and even regiments:
-Mercer's Brigade: 2000 men engaged (23 total casualties)
-Loring's Division: 2550 men engaged (1016 total casualties)
-Featherston's Brigade: 1230 men engaged (626 total casualties)
-31st MS: 215 men engaged (164 total casualties)
-Scott's Brigade: 1320 men engaged (390 total casualties)
-57th AL: 330 men engaged (157 total casualties)
-12th LA: 318 men engaged (73 total casualties)
-Cantey's/O'Neal's Brigade: 1050 men engaged (279 total casualties)
-37th MS: 210 engaged (48 total casualties)
-D. H. Reynolds' Brigade: 540 men engaged (67 total casualties) (Reynolds fought a minor engagement on the 19th; Hess places Reynolds' strength at 600 men, with the brigade suffering 59 casualties that day).
In addition, Hess lists the casualties (though not the engaged strengths) for the following divisions and brigades:
-Maney's/F. M. Walker's Brigade: 11 lost
-Strahl's Brigade: 21 lost
-Vaughan's/Magevney's Brigade: 122 lost
-Wright's/Carter's Brigade: 122 lost
-French's Division: 19 lost
-Cockrell's Brigade: 15 lost
-Ector's Brigade: 4 lost
-Quarles' Brigade: 24 lost

For the Battle of Bald Hill, thanks to Daniel Sutherland's article, I have the strength for Dan Govan's Arkansas Brigade as 1221 men "effectives", and suffered 86 killed, 322 wounded, and 91 captured, ending up with just 722 men as of July 23rd (Sutherland 294). J. A. Smith's Texas/Tennessee Brigade would have had around that number, while Lowrey probably had a thousand men, of whom 578 were lost at Bald Hill. Cleburne's Division, having not been engaged at Peachtree Creek, suffered 1388 casualties, a third of the division and a third of Hardee's total casualties, 3299. The remainder comes from Maney's Division (619 casualties), Walker's Division (no direct report, except for Mercer's brigade's report of 168; Castel notes that most of the remaining casualties probably came from Walker's division, "if for no other reason than that it had more men to lose" (Castel 412)), and Bate's Division (again, no division report, but the Kentucky Brigade lost 135 men). Meanwhile, Brown's Division lost around 1000 men, according to Manigault and Castel, while Clayton suffered around 600 casualties (Stovall's Brigade lost 298, and Holtzclaw 128). Stevenson probably suffered the majority of the remaining corps casualties of around 2000 men. G. W. Smith lost 50 killed and wounded. Thus, Castel brings the total casualty estimate for Atlanta at around 5500 men.

As for Ezra Church, I have only Castel's book to reference. He gives no brigade or division strengths for the forces engaged; however, he does note the casualties. Walthall reported the loss of 152 officers and 1000 men of which 514 came from Quarles' Brigade alone; Brown suffered 807 casualties; Gibson's Brigade suffered 480 casualties, the rest of Clayton's Division (apparently not counting Bushrod Jones' Brigade) contributing 120 casualties. Castel places total Confederate losses at Ezra Church at around 3000 (Castel 424).

If someone gets more information on the forces in this period, I invite you to post. I may try getting Hess' Ezra Church book, and maybe fish out a book about Bald Hill.

Update, just bought Hess' Ezra Church on Google Books, gleaned through the OoB real quick and updated the original post thusly.
I'll need to read more in depth with it though.

Thomas B Smith has a very sad story. He was beaten by a Federal soldier and suffered brain damage that cause him to be institutionalized.
Not just a Federal soldier, but Colonel William McMillen, an incompetent drunkard, who somehow got away with abusing a POW needlessly. One of the more despicable acts of the entire war.
