The Thirty-Fifth (Likens') Texas Cavalry was organized in late 1863 by the consolidation of two Texas cavalry battalions, Likens Texas Cavalry Battalion and Burns' Texas Cavalry Battalion. The unit was organized at Galveston and Hempstead, Texas.
More detailed information has been found on eight of the regiment's companies. This material is listed below.

A Brief History of the 35 TX Cavalry, CSA
Submitted by Lars Gjertveit
In 1863, James B. Likens (former commander of the short-lived 6th Texas Infantry Battalion) organized a cavalry battalion in the Western Sub-District. On October 23, 1863, his battalion was consolidated with James R. Burns' battalion and designated the 35th (Likens') Texas Cavalry Regiment. The regiment served in the lower Rio Grande Valley until March 1864, when called to Louisiana. According to my sources, the 35th was attached to Brig. General. Hamilton P. Bee's brigade, but was not engaged at Mansfield (in reserve). To fill vacancies after heavy casualties at Mansfield and Pleasant Hill, the cavalry was reorganized into two divisions under Bee and James P. Major. The 35th Texas ended up in Arthur P. Bagby's Brigade of Bee's division, and joined in the pursuit of Banks' forces in the Red River Valley. Bee was relieved from command on May 14. In late fall of 1864, the 35th Texas was pulled back to Texas, and dismounted in March 1865. The regiment apparently disbanded at Harrisburg about May 27, 1865.
