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.

For the rosters below, H32 stands for the roster in History of the Thirty-Second Regiment and OR stands for the roster in Official Roster of the Soldiers of the State of Ohio.
