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.
The above information about counties is from Richard L. Manion's book, Sandusky County, Ohio, Civil War Soldiers.
Short biographies of the soldiers in this regiment are in Homer Everett's book, History of Sandusky County, (Cleveland, Ohio: H. Z. Williams, 1882), pages 289-327, not in alphabetical order. Internet Archive.
