Even though your ancestor was “said” to be in ie: Company “K”… it is wise to also check other Companies within that Regiment. If you have no luck finding him, broaden your search. Companies AND Regiments were ‘attached, renamed or disbanded with regularly.’ Frequently, a Volunteer would cross the county line from his county of residence to enlist. So, your soldier could be on an adjacent County’s Roster. Your ancestor may not be where logic would have you look!
