Henry Wade, Capt. Co. B, 6th TX Cav Rgt

After organization of the 6th, Capt Dye had command of Company B. At regorzation in May 1862, Dye resigned and Capt. Henry W. Wade assumed command. Some time after Elkhorn Tavern (Pea Ridge for the Yankees) he was wounded (Possibly Corinth) and may have eventially lost his arm. It is possible that he went on the Holly Springs raid wounded and went home in January to recoup. He then returned to his company before the start of the Atlanta Campaign. At the end of the Atlanta Campaign he led a recon composed of surplus officers and it would be interesting to learn how a cavalry officer operated with one arm. His GGGGS is a Navy pilot in Afgan' is doing our duty, but after his long days in the air he un-winds doing history. We know Henry was out of the picture for about a year. Does anyone have any leads on this Captain. His two brothers were also in company B and ended up officiers.
ps: Does anyone have knowledge of the makeup of LT GEN Pemberton's staff during late '62 before the Holly Springs Raid? Where it was located and who the players were.
