Our good friend Bryan Howerton referred to the service records for Davies' Battalion in the Arkansas records.
I couldn't find them there myself, but here is what I found in the Missouri Compiled Service Records from Fold3:
CSR for Davies Mo Bn in Missouri CSR’s

Camp Cane Hill, Ark
J F Davies Lt Col cdg Bn to Maj Gen Clark cdg Marmaduke’s Div-Reports sent up on yesterday are fully ample to show to your satisfaction that my Battalion is now ineffective; the men having […] gone home. Whether I can get them to this army in a body again, of course I cannot say; but with a view to that result I ask that the officers and men now [remaining] be sent to Greene and Craighead Counties to collect the absentees, deserters and details [together] with recruiting authority with instructions to report to the Army Corps at such time as you may deem [ample] [propose].
I further ask if this petition is granted full instructions, etc., etc. Promising the most energetic deportment upon my part to collect the men and enforce orders I have the honor to remain yours.
