Seventh Texas Mounted Volunteer Cavalry Regiment
Company H from Houston County, Texas
Roster as of September 17, 1861

The following information was submitted by:  Tim Hashaw

This is only one cavalry company and does not include infantry companies, battery companies, etc which also came from Houston County. The roster reflects only those names which started with the outfit in 1861 and does not include later recruits from Houston County as the war progressed. A company was expected to maintain full-size in the aftermath of casualties and there were a LOT of casualties and many new recruits in this regiment. If your veteran from this company is not llisted, it may be because they became a part of the unit later in the war.

Four regiments accompanied Col Sibley in the New Mexico campaign:
2nd Regiment Texas Mounted Rifles
4th Regiment Texas Mounted Vol
5th Regiment Texas Mounted Vol
7th Texas Mounted Vol

In addition to the Houston Co company with the 7th Texas Mounted Volunteer Cavalry Regiment, Houston County also supplied a company for the 4th Regiment, and a company for the 2nd Regiment Texas Mounted Rifles.

Those looking for more information should refer to the source book "The Confederate Army in New Mexico" by Hall, Presidial Press University of Texas, Austin, 1967. It has personal stories of many of these Houston County men.
