His Compiled Service Record (CSR) file, presented on the web at Footnote, is under the name Elonza Rinehart, The file W. A. Rinehart refers to cards filed under the name Elonza Rinhart. He enlisted in Co. C, 2nd Virginia Cavalry [originally Radford's Regiment, Radford's Rangers, 30th Virginia Vols.] May 1, 1862 at Fincastle, wounded near Boonsborro, Md July 8, 1863, sent home thru February 1864 at least, recorded as sent to hospital Charlottesville March 20, 1864, last card dated December 27, 1864 is recorded, absent sick at hospital, $50 bounty due.
