Brief History

The 1st Regiment, Ohio Heavy Artillery mustered in September 15, 1862 at Portsmouth, Ohio, as the 117th Ohio Volunteer Infantry. It mustered out July 25, 1865 at Department of the Cumberland[1].

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 Columbiana, Jackson County and Scioto County.

Company B - many men from Ross County.

Company C - many men from Franklin County and Pike County.

Company D - many men from Meigs County and Scioto County.

Company E - many men from Adams County.

Company F - many men from Lawrence County and Scioto County.

Company G - many men from Gallia County.
