The Ritter Family of Garland County

I am researching my ancestors, the Ritters of Garland County. They arrived from Moore County, NC, during the 1850s. During the war, several sons served on either or both sides. Archibald J. Ritter served in the 11/17th Ark Inf (CSA), while John D. Ritter served in the 4th Ark Cav (USA). Thomas H. and Malcom S. apparently served in both regiments according to records.

I have gathered some records from the National Archives, but such information as death and burial are not available. I would appreciate any information that can be shared.
