Companies in this Battalion with the Counties of Origin
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 - Captains William M. McGown, and John P. Turner - Many men from Henry County
Company B - Captain Christian Hoover - Many men from Clinton, Hickory County
Company C - Captain Jeol E. Wright - Many men from Butler, Bates County
