      Thanks Robert,

      I was aware about the 4th company when I believe that you told Don C. or Brian D. about the missing company.

      Thanks for the lead on the masters thesis; they are not usually on Proquest so I may have to contact Shippensburg library. Do you know if their library has a copy?

      Thank you,
      Larry

One reference I ran across helped a little: Christopher A. Newcomer, "Cole's Cavalry or Three Years in the Saddle in the Shenandoah Valley." I have other secondary reference which help, too. Perhaps you have other references which could help about the unit at HF? And if you had some time early next year you could look over my chapter on the HF breakout especially relating to Cole's Cavalry?
