Civil War Soldiers from Washington County

[This transcription was contributed by Karen Souhrada in January 1998.]

Karen states:

I found the following in my civil war research file, but I am unsure of the exact title of the source ( I believe it is from a report held in the W. Virginia Archives. These names were copied along with the letter of the alphabet 'G' that we were searching for our Geho ancestors. Someone might be able to use them though to further research via the National Archives, for their Washington county ancestors.
