"Scanland’s Squadron, Co. A., Texas Cavalry became Wells’ Battalion, Texas Cavalry, Co. A.  After the war, he served as a justice of the peace, sheriff, tax assessor and county commissioner. Graduating from the St. Louis College of Physicians & Surgeons in 1891 he went on to become a doctor.  He was married to “Rhoda C.” (b.6/17/1846; d.3/4/1908).

Editor's note:  Thomas R. Allen enrolled October 1861 in CSA Scanland's Squad, Company ’A’;  "... discharged 16 Jun 62 for not meeting age of conscript act."  He was then "transferred to [TST] Captain [Wm. H.] Shoemake's  [Militia] Company in the fall of 1863 and served one year. ..."  On Jan 30, 1864, T.R. Allen, age 18, was elected as 3rd Corporal.

          Also, since T.R. Allen said he served one year in [implied] militia, he probably first served in Capt. Birdwell's militia.

Wells' Texas Cavalry

by David L. Haimerl of Stover MO

David L. Haimerl  of Stover MO transcribed these records and stated:  "Here is a rough draft of a roster I'm creating of what I'm terming Well's Tx Commands. It is a transcription of the Confederate Service Records (CSRs) for Well's Tx Bn (which includes Scanland's Sqd & Gillett's Co.), Well's Tx Rgt and Good's Tx Bn. Unfortunately, the CSRs, especially for Well's Rgt and Good's Bn have a lot to be desired. One day I'm hoping to publish this material and if anyone feels like contributing information on any of the individuals I'd greatly appreciate it. Additionally, I have yet to go through the CSRs for the 1st Choctaw & Chickasaw Rgt which some of the men served in. Other projects are in the forefront. Also, I'll post the entire roster as my work schedule permits."

Well’s Texas Cavalry Regiment was organized from remnants of Well’s Cavalry, Good’s TX Cavalry, and Gilletts’ TX Cavalry. This regiment often used the designation 34th Texas Cavalry. It was assigned to the 4th Brigade in Early 1865. (March 6, 1865.)

 

Well's Texas Cavalry Battalion was organized in the fall of 1863 at the Spencer Academy, Doaksville, Indian Territory. Almost all the members of the unit were recruited in Northeastern Texas. The Battalion's commanding officer was Lt. Colonel John W. Wells., L. E. Gillett, Major, W. C. Jones Adjt. It was formed by consolidating Scanland's Squadron, Gillet's Squadron, and Capt. John Miller's Company, Texas Cavalry. It was evidently composed of six companies, "A" to "F" which subsequently formed Companies "A" to "F", Wells' Regiment Texas Cavalry,, formed by the consolidation of this Battalion and Chapline Good's Battalion Texas Cavalry.

 

Personal Papers of Major Gillett show that the companies were mustered as of this Battalion for September and October, 1864, and as of Wells' Regiment Texas Cavalry for November and December 1864. The letters are reported to have been forwarded in February, 1865. This indicates the Regiment was organized in in December, 1864 or early in 1865. No order found.


The captains of the companies in this battalion were as follows:
 

Co. A Captain John Scanland and Captain Jullius Harshaw

The battalion spent it's entire career assigned to higher commands located in Indian Territory. On Oct. 26, 1863, Wells' battalion was attached to Cooper's Brigade, Steel's Division, District of the Indian Territory, Trans-Mississippi Department. On Jan. 1, 1864 it became a part of the First Brigade and on March 16, 1864, a detachment was sent to both Fort Arbuckle and Fort Washita, District of Indian Territory, Trans-Mississippi Department.

Wells' Texans participated in more than fifteen various type engagements during it's career. These included:

Attack, Fort Gibson, Indian Territory, Dec. 16, 1863
Operations against Steele's Expedition from Little Rock to Camden Arkansas, March 23-May 3, 1864
Actions, Prairie D'Ane, AR, April 9-12, 1864

Action Fort Gibson, Indian Territory Sept. 18, 1864

In early 1865, Wells' Texas Cavalry Battalion was consolidated with Good's Texas Cavalry. The new organization resulting from this consolidation was designated Wells' Texas Cavalry. There is reason to believe that at least some of Giddings' Texas Cavalry Battalion also saw service in the regiment.   

Like almost all Civil War Units, Wells' Texas Cavalry was often by an alternate designation derived from the name of its commanding officer. Names of this type identified as having been used by or for the regiment are John W. Wells Cavalry, Chapline Good's Cavalry, and L. E. Gillett's Cavalry.

On February 14th 1865, the regiment was ordered south from Indian Territory and instructed to report for duty at Houston, Texas. During the short career of the regiment only one higher command assignment has been identified for this unit. March 31, 1865, Fifth Texas Cavalry Brigade, Second Texas Cavalry Division, First Corps, Army of Trans-Mississippi.

On April 24, 1865, the regiment was ordered to Camp Angeles, Texas. When the Confederate forces in the Trans-Mississippi Department surrendered, Wells' Texas Cavalry was included among them. The unit probably disbanded a short time before the surrender, however.

 Editor's note:  ...  Capt. W.A. Beard's Company I evidently received orders to stay in Indian Territory while the remainder of the Wells Battn were sent to the Texas coast.

From Thomas R. Allen service record entry above:  ....  “I enlisted in October 1861 and surrendered . . . to General Reynolds of the U.S. Army at Ft. Gibson in April 1865 and was released from custody at Fort Leavenworth, KS in June 1865. . . . I first enlisted in Captain Scantlin’s Company, which was Co. A. in Welles Battalion Cavalry . . . was transferred to [TST] Capt. Shoemake’s Company in the fall of 1863 and served one year and was transferred to Beard’s Company [W.A. Beard – Well’s Texas Cavalry Regiment; Co. I], with which I surrendered. . . . I was detailed to work in the hospital during the winter of 1862.”    (from Thomas R. Allen in his TX CSA Denton Co TX pension application  #38092) ..."

The unit sometimes was incorrectly known as the Thirty Fourth Texas Cavalry. There was an officially designated unit with this number and there appears to have been no relationship between the two regiments. Another Texas Cavalry Regiment - Terrell's - Was also incorrectly known by this numeric designation.
