*TMV -- Texas Mounted Volunteers
** SFNC: Santa Fe National Cemetery -- Santa Fe, NM

General remarks : Ref 5 states (p.32) that Lt Col Scurry, Confederate field commander at Glorieta, reported Confederate losses as 36 KIA and 60 wounded whereas Ref 9 (p.138) states , "The Confederates had 48 men killed and mortally wounded ... with an additional 60 less seriously wounded." Ref 7 (p.260) generally agrees with Ref 9. The above table shows 42 KIA and an additional 25 soldiers as mortally wounded (or died of sickness); most probably died in the Confederate Santa Fe hospital after 3/28/1862. These include soldiers KIA or mortally wounded at Apache Canyon (3/26/1862). Given the number of KIA-mortally wounded in the above table the webmaster believes that Refs 7 & 9 are more nearly accurate. The number of Confederate soldiers KIA-mortally wounded at Apache Canyon-Glorieta or died of sickness in Santa Fe, NM will likely never be determined with precision.

Some of the mortally wounded CS soldiers, notably masons, were buried at the Montezuma Masonic Lodge Cemetery (MMLC) -- located near the SFNC. Some of these interments in the MMLC were moved to the SFNC in 1895, notably Capt Adair, and perhaps some were moved to the Fairview Cemetery (Santa Fe, NM) ca. 1905.

In the above table soldiers known to have died in the Confederate hospital in Santa Fe are assumed by the webmaster to be buried in the SFNC (unless a reference states another location); therefore "SFNC, NM" is listed in the Burial Location column. Otherwise "Unknown" is listed.

Note 1: Maj Shropshire was buried adjacent to the mass grave of Confederate soldiers KIA at Battle of Glorieta (3/28/1862). His remains were re-interred on 8/5/1990 at his birthplace in Valley Forge, KY alongside his parents (Ref 1).
Note 2: Maj Raguet was buried at MMLC (Santa Fe, NM), then transferred to either Fairview Cemetery (Santa Fe, NM) or possibly back to TX (Ref 1). Maj Raguet's age (at commission) and muster location are extracted from Ref 5.
Note 3: Ref 5 (p.88) states, "He (Capt Buckholts) is buried near the spot where with his own hand he struck down the enemy of his country." This implies that Capt Buckholts is buried on the Glorieta battlefield. But Ref 1 states he was buried at MMLC (Santa Fe, NM) then moved to Fairview Cemetery (Santa Fe, NM) -- however, his burial location within the Fairview Cemetery is unknown. There is speculation that his remains were re-interred to Texas but, there is no evidence of this & if so, his remains would probably have been reinterred in Milam County, TX where he lived before the war; but there is no eveidence of a gravesite for him there (e-mail from James Williams of Milam Co, TX, dated 2/03/2005).
Note 4: Pvts Hanna and Cotton were buried in the mass grave at Glorieta, NM and their remains were positively identified as a result of matching forensic ages, nature of death wound, etc (Ref 1).
Note 5: Soldiers that were possibly buried in the mass grave at Glorieta, NM (3/28/1862). There are more than 31 names including Maj Shropshire and Pvts Cotton and Hanna -- however, the list can't be further reduced given the current data (Ref 1).
Note 6: KIA or mortally wounded at Glorieta, NM (3/28/1862) (Ref 2). Pvt Jones' second initial is "E" (Ref 3) or "C" (Ref 5).
Note 7: KIA or mortally wounded at Glorieta, NM (3/28/1862) (Ref 3). Pvt Riedel's (Reidel) age is cited as 18 (Ref 5).
Note 8: Soldiers mortally wounded at Glorieta, NM (3/28/1862) or became sick & presumed to have died at CS Army hospital in Santa Fe, NM and buried in SFNC, NM either in 1862 (Ref 1) or re-interred in 1895 from the MMLC (Ref 4).
Note 9: Died in Santa Fe, NM as Sibley was evacuating (Ref 3).
Note 10: One of five Confederate soldiers who were mortally wounded at Apache Canyon (3/26/1862) or Battle of Glorieta or became sick and buried at the MMLC (Santa Fe, NM) in 1862 and whose remains were re-interred at SFNC in 1895 (Ref 4).
Note 11: Ref 4 cites Pvt William Ohram as a Texas Ranger -- however, Ref 1 cites Pvt William Oram (Ohram) as being a member of Co B, 5th TMV and Refs 3& 5 show Pvt Oram (Ohram) as being a member of Co C, 5th TMV -- although he may have transferred to Co B later. Ref 5 cites Pvt Oram (Ohram) as died of illness in the CS Army (Santa Fe, NM) hospital.
Note 12: Ref 4 cites Pvt Thomas Cater as a Texas Ranger -- however, Ref 5 cites Pvt Thomas Cater as a member of the "Brigands." This unit was never mustered into the Confederate Army, instead, they were employed by Sibley's Quartermaster Department. Pvt Cator joined the Brigands in Santa Fe, NM on March 21, 1862 and his age as 24 (Ref 5).

Note 13: Mortally wounded at Apache Canyon (3/26/1862) (Ref 6).

Note 14: KIA at Apache Canyon (Ref 5).

Note 15: Believed KIA at Glorieta (Ref 5).

Note 16: Pvts Schultz & Cave died 3/26/1862 & 3/27/1862, respectively, both of illness before the Battle of Glorieta and are likely buried near Johnson's Ranch where the 4th TMV were camped (webmaster comment) (Ref 5 & 8).

Note 17: Died in Santa Fe, NM -- cause of death unknown -- buried 4/17/1862 (Ref 8). Likely buried in SFNC (webmaster comment).

Note 18: Died in Santa Fe, NM -- cause of death pnuemonia -- buried 4/16/1862 (Ref 8). Likely buried in SFNC (webmaster comment).

Note 19: Died in Santa Fe, NM -- cause of death unknown -- buried 4/13/1862 (Ref 8). Likely buried in SFNC (webmaster comment).

Note 20 : Died in Santa Fe, NM -- died of wound(s) 4/13/1862 (Ref 8). Likely buried in SFNC (webmaster comment).

Note 21: Died in Santa Fe, NM -- cause of death unknown (Ref 5). Likely buried in SFNC (webmaster comment).
