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 Madison County[2]

Company G - Many men from Madison County, Fayette County and Pickaway County[2]

County listing from Steve Ward's Buckeyes All, Part V revised, is listed on Larry Stevens' Ohio in the Civil War web site for the 113th Ohio Infantry .
