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 E - see Roster.
Company H - see Roster.
Company I - see Roster.
Company K - see Roster.
The above Company rosters are 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 73-137.
