There is a lot to research on these Texas cavalry organizations. I wish I knew more. My 3rd cousin has identified several in his family tree---which are distant cousins to me---who all served in Texas "cavalry" units. Some of the Texas cavalry were dismounted, so I get confused even more Are any of these units the same ones you listed?In addition, the 7 Texas regiments were consolidated into just two; 6th, 10th, and 15th Texas Consolidated under Colonel Roger Q. Mills of the 10th Texas; and 17th, 18th, 24th, and 25th Texas Consolidated under Colonel Clayton Gillespie of the 25th, later by Francis Wilkes of the 24th. Counting the 19th/24th Arkansas of the Fort Hindman Garrison
Major Henry Benjamin Cole, 10th Brigade Texas State Troops. Q: Is this the same 10th Texas?
Pvt William F. Cole, 17th Regiment Texas Cavalry (aka Moore's Regiment Texas Cavalry)
Pvt Pinkney T. Winn, 18th Texas Cavalry (aka Darnell's Regiment Texas Cavalry)
Other relatives served in the 3rd Regiment Texas Cavalry(aka the South Kansas Texas Regiment of Cavalry) and also 34th Regiment Texas Cavalry(aka 37th Regiment Texas cavalry and Terrell's Regiment Texas Cavalry).
