My great-great grandfather, William Staines was in Company C of the 26th. He was a native of England and came to Texas in 1840. He left no papers regarding his service in DeBray's company. Records show that he was killed "by accident" on July 22, 1864 in Louisiana. I haven't been able to find anything else regarding his death. At the time, he was assigned to the Regimental Teamsters.
I'd like to know where Debray's men were camped on that date and maybe I can track down my kinsman's burial location. No doubt it is long lost, but maybe not. I've done some sketches of the 26th's uniforms based on Adolphus research and can send copies, just don't post them anywhere or pass them off as your own. I have the copyright.
