The Adjutant General's report of this company is shamefully reproduced. Some political lout who was too lazy to digest a good meal prepared it. Nearly all the names in this company have the post office or township omitted, and I am sure three-fourths of the men came from Lee county.

Many post offices or townships are omitted here too, so that I am sure several Lee county names are omitted.

To the uncertain ones I have added (?). There are several from Hermon I did not include. The spelling is fearfully bad in the record.
