There is a chapter on him in Lt. Col. Albert Webb Bishop's, 1863 book,Loyalty on the Frontier. My great grandfather, James F. Coatney was in Co. D in that unit. (He raised my dad.) GGrandfather James told my dad many times that Charles Galloway, Jesse Gilstrap, and John Worthington was the best officers that the unit had. Must be some truth to that as all three of those men has chapters written about them in Col. Bishop's book. Sadly, GreatGrandfather, James F. Coatney never had the chance to read the book, because he could not read or write. Great Grandfather, James though wounded on Brush Creek, near Fayetteville AR was one of the first to enlist in the First AR Cav., UNION and stayed in until it mustered out of active duty at the end of the Civil War at Springfield, Missouri. He was a rabid Unionist.
