Company A was recruited in the southern part of Jefferson county, PA., and was made up from the very best young men from Punxsutawney, and Perry and Oliver townships. The company was raised in three days, mainly through the exertion of Captain John Hastings, assisted by Lieutenants Neill and Morris. After the discharge of Captain Hastings for wounds received while gallantly leading them against the enemy at Bull Run, the command devolved upon Captain W. J. Clyde, who, while charging at their head into the very midst of the rebel host at the Wilderness, was killed. Then Captain John H. McKee assumed command, and, leading them through all the subsequent battles in which they were engaged, finally brought the remnant of the company home after final discharge. The subjoined rolls of the company give the record of every man who belonged to it. During their term of service they lost one officer killed and thirty-nine enlisted men killed and died. The company had on its rolls, from the time of its enlistment until its final discharge, two hundred and three men, of whom forty-nine were drafted men and substitutes.
