  Company A (Paineville Rifles) - many men from Amelia County

  Company B (Bedford Rifle Grays) - mny men from Bedford County

  Company C (Fluvanna Rifle Guard) - many men from Fluvanna County

  Company D ( Chesterfield Central Guards) - many men from Chesterfield County

  Company H (Meadville Greys) - many men from Halifax County

  Company  I  (Chester Grays) (Southern Braves) - many men from Chesterfield County
