Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin[edit | edit source]

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.

Company A - enrolled in Lee County

Company B - enrolled in Jefferson County

Company C - enrolled in Washington County

Company D - enrolled in Jefferson County

Company E - enrolled in Lee County

Company F - enrolled in Louisa County

Company G - enrolled in Louisa County

Company H - enrolled in Van Buren County

Company I - enrolled in Van Buren County

Company K - enrolled in County

Information about the companies and their counties comes from Iowa. Adjutant General's Office, Report of the Adjutant General and Acting Quartermaster General of the State of Iowa, (Des Moines [Iowa]: F.W. Palmer, 1863), pages 682-717. FHL book 977.7 M25ag.

Rosters are also listed in this book.
