Roster - Company I



Cambridge and Easton

This Company was raised in Cambridge and the south half of Easton. These two towns sent many of her patriotic sons to the defense of the government - 84 men going in the 123rd Regiment, about 27 from Easton, and the balance from Cambridge.

At a special meeting held March 26, 1864, a bounty of $350 was authorized to be paid each volunteer by the Supervisor. At a special meeting held June 25, 1864, John L. Huntt, John H. Balch and Thomas Shiland were appointed a committee to fill the quota and pay bounties not exceeding $450 each volunteer. This was increased to $500 in August.
