Its companies were recruited in the counties of Rankin, Quitman, Leake, Scott, Copiah, and Simpson. On April 26, 1865, it surrendered. The field officers were Colonels Robert Lowry and John J.

Regiment Companies with the County 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.
