For more information on the history of this unit, see:

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.

County listing from Steve Ward's Buckeyes All, Part V Revised, is given on Larry Stevens' Ohio in the Civil War web page, 157th Ohio Infantry
