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 - had many men from Wyandot County.

Company B - had many men from Huron County.

Company C - had many men from Huron County.

Company D - had many men from Seneca County.

Company E - had many men from Huron County.

Company F - had many men from Wyandot County.

Company G - had many men from Erie County.

Company H - had many men from Crawford County.

Company I - had many men from Seneca County.

Company K - had many men from Erie County and Seneca County.
