COMPANY F was recruited chiefly in the counties of Indiana and Clearfield, with a few men from Venango and Jefferson, and was composed of as good material as ever mustered in defense of freedom. The company went into service under the leadership of the gallant Captain Robert Kirk of Indiana county, and, losing him in the fiery holocaust at Chancellorsville, they were subsequently commanded by Captain John Daugherty, who led them gallantly into the different hard-fought battles in which the regiment participated, until the expiration of his term of enlistment, October 7, 1864, when the command devolved upon Captain William Kimple, who led them into all the subsequent engagements unflinchingly, until their final muster out of service. Company F, during its term of service, numbered in all one hundred and ninety-one men, sixty-four of whom were drafted men and substitutes. The loss of the company was one officer killed, and thirty-three enlisted men killed and died.
