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 Pittsburg, Allegheny County

Company B - many men from Allegheny, Allegheny County

Company C - many men from Fredonia, Berks County

Company D - many men from Pleasantville, Berks County

Company E - many men from Allegheny, Allegheny County

Company F - many men from Pittsburg, Allegheny County

Company G - many men from Reading, Berks County

Company H - many men from Boalsburg, Centre County

Company I - many men from Lewistown, Mifflin County

Company K - many men from Pittsburg, Allegheny County

  • Pennsylvania in the Civil War describes many sources, specifically for Pennsylvania, and how to find them. These include compiled service records, pension records, rosters, cemetery records, Internet databases, published books, etc.
  • United States Civil War, 1861 to 1865 describes and explains United States and Confederate States records, rather than state records, and how to find them.
