The only factual information that I can lend you is that several families from Union County, NC migrated to Union County, AR during the late 1800's. I don't know if any other members of the 37th were in that number. My father reports from his father's (Milus' grandson) account of the journey,was that "Milus was blind" (again reportedly from war injuries) when he left North Carolina and the family was in search of "good farm land". A Texas land grant was applied for and recieved but never claimed due to the purchase of 120 acres by his oldest son Henry Mentris Pyron who helped establish the first post office in that area of Arkansas and became it's first postmaster.
