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.

Company A - many men from Hancock County; see Roster

Company B - many men from Hancock County; see Roster

Company C - many men from Hancock County; see Roster

Company D - many men from Hancock County; see Roster

Company E - many men from Hancock County; see Roster

Company F - many men from Hancock County; see Roster

Company G - many men from Hancock County; see Roster

Company H - many men from Hancock County; see Roster

Company I - many men from Hancock County; see Roster 

Company K - many men from Hancock County; seeRoster 

The above information about the counties is from Official Roster of the Soldiers of the State of Ohio in the War of the Rebellion, 1861-1866, vol. III, 21st-36th Regiments-Infantry, (Cincinnati, Ohio Valley Pub., 1886), pages 10-38. Internet Archive.
