The source for the D Company names is the Georgia Department of Archives and History. They are also identically listed on pages 118/119 of The History of Gordon County/War Between the States. There were numerous brothers, cousins and other relatives from the same families that answered the call to the colors during the Civil War. My ancestors, the Moss family, provided 6 family members; the Frix family provided 4; the Wilson family sent 6 members; the Wade family, 4 individuals; the Walraven family, 4; and various other families in groups of 2’s and 3’s joined the unit. The men of company D has been provided separately as this was the unit in which my ancestors served. I have provided a link to the entire unit at our links page.
