Company I
George A. Ford - Corporal   
Information about regiment and company was found on gravestone in Guildhall, Vt. George Ford mustered in as a private. He reenlisted and mustered out as a corporal. He was wounded at the Wilderness and captured at Petersburg; he was paroled out from his captivity. He was a farmer in Guildhall Vermont for the remainder of his life. He never talked about the war at all to his son, my grandfather, so no stories were passed on directly by Mr. Ford.
