My apologies -- I found the answer to my own question, thanks to Google Books David Dixon’s “Hero of Beecher Island"

Here is the page with the picture and listing of people in picture ... It turns out the guy behind Sheridan is C Ross Smith.

Carpenter priorly had been itendified as Emlen N. Carpenter of the 6th PA; however this is not possible as he was in Libby Prison at that time. Other Carpenter, other 6th.

Sources are the two aforementioned ones, the as always amazing MOLLUS identification and a little cross-searching for the details.
