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  (Strasburg Guards) - many men from Shenandoah County
Company B ( Rockingham Rifles) many men from Rockingham County
Company C (1st) (Southern Grays)

Company C ( 2nd)  (Mauck's Company)  - many men from  Rockingham County
Company D (Bridgewater Greys)  - many men from Rockingham County
Company E (Peaked Mt. Grays) - many men from Rockingham County
Company F (Muhlenburg Rifles) - many men from  Shenandoah County

Company G  (Valley Guards) - many men from  Rockingham County;

Company  H (Chrisman's Infantry) - many men from  Rockingham County

Company   I ( Riverton Invincibles)  - many men from Rockingham and Alleghany Counties. See FHL book 975.581 H2m for muster roster for men from Covington, Alleghany County.
