Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin[edit | edit source]
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 - Men from Jackson County and Overton County.
- Company B - Men from Cumberland County and Jackson County.
- Company C - Men from Smith County and White County.
- Company D - Men from Jackson County and Putnam County.
- Company H - Some men from Putnam County.
- Company K - Men from Jackson County, Cumberland County and Overton County.
