For James B. Hawkins, it's kind of hard to say. Without a pension or other documentation giving the regiment, it can be a shot in the dark. I see two in Texas:

James B. Hawkins
Age 19, enlisted 15 Nov 1862 at Georgetown (presume Texas) in Baylor's Texas Cavalry, a.k.a. 2nd Arizona Brigade. That's the extent of his record.

James B. Hawkins
Company A, Morgan's Texas Cavalry
Enlisted 26 Mar 1862 Dallas, TX for one year

Medical discharge dated 16 Aug 1862 Little Rock, AR states he enlisted at Georgetown, TX 10 Mar 1862 for period of one year; born in Macon County, AL; is 19 yrs old; height 5'-8"; fair complexion, blue eyes, light hair; occupation farmer; unfit for duty the past 40 (or 60?) days. Medical statement reports that he has paralysis of left side caused by typhoid fever.
