I am NOT related to D.R., but thought my old notes might be of help to one of you. If you have any Civil War info on a James T., John Robert, or Francis McCullough, please email me. Thanks.

He is 62 (b. 1844-45) and has resided in Dallas Co. for 52 years (since 1854-55). Occupation: training and trading horses. Physical condition is feeble; has gallstones and has been operated on twice. Served for 3 yrs 9 mos, enlisting about Oct 1862 in Co. C, 6th TX Cav (Ross’s); discharged about Jun 1865. Has not previously received veteran donation land or a pension. Property consists of one horse worth $100. Not married; has no income and is indigent. Witnesses: Geo. B. Brown and John R. West, Sr, both of whom have known the applicant for 50 years and served with him in the 6th. They testify also that applicant served until the end of the war and never deserted. Physician’s affidavit: “Hernia of old standing & having recently undergone an operation for gall stones renders one incapable of manual labor at his age. At present time has open fratula from gall bladder. Military record shows that he was last reported on the roll for April 30, 1864.
