Terry, went to Virginia, and was elected lieutenant colonel on the organization of Terry's Texas Rangers. After Terry was killed in the battle at Woodsonville, Kentucky, Lubbock was advanced to command of the regiment, but he was ill at the time and died shortly thereafter, possibly on January 23, 1862."
