Companies in this Regiment 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.

See the Regiment Roster, for listing of individuals, their company and their involvement.

Company A - principally recruited from Johnstown, Fulton County 

Company B - principally recruited from Mohawk, Herkimer County; and Palatine and Root of Montgomery County

Company C - principally recruited from Root, Glen, Florida and Charleston, all in Montgomery County

Company D - principally recruited from Johnstown and Mayfield of Fulton County

Company E - principally recruited from Minden and St. Johnsville in Montgomery County 

Company F - principally recruited from Oppenheim, Lassellsville, Ephratah, all in Fulton County;  Canajoharie, Montgomery County , and Clifton Park, Saratoga County 

Company G - principally recruited from Plattsburg, Mooers and Altona in Clinton County; and Essex, Essex County  

Company H - principally recruited from Galway, Greenfield, Milton, Clifton Park, Ballston Spa, Moreau, all in Saratoga County; Root, Montgomery County; and Wilson, Niagara County 

Company I - principally recruited from Champlain, Clinton County; Chesterfield, Essex County; Plattsburg and  AuSable in Clinton County
