Company G., 9th Ky Cav., CSA, was formed in Lexington, Ky, in September 1862, during Confederate Gen. Kirby Smith's invasion and occupation of Kentucky. Many of the men in this company were recruited from Henry County.
Lester Horwitz, the author of The Longest Raid of the Civil War, a book about Gen. John Hunt Morgan's raid into Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio advises that before the actual raid by Gen. Morgan about 80 men detached themselves from the 9th Ky Cavalry, and under the command of a Capt. Thomas Henry Hines made reconnaissance mission into Indiana for Gen. Morgan to determine the strength of the Home Guard forces in the area, and to determine the amount of support that could be expected from the Copperheads and others sympathetic to the Confederacy. Most of these men were taken prisoner on June 19, 1863 when they tried to return to Kentucky. It is not know if the many men listed below as "captured" were taken as part of this expedition or not. Its merely listed as possibility for those wishing to research the matter.
The followings is a roster of the newly-recruited troops who formed Company G provided by C. Marie Winburn of Henry Co., KY Historical Society. Eventually, this will be put into a table format similar to other units from Henry Co., KY, but I wanted to make the raw data available as soon as possible. If one of your ancestors is listed here and you would like to be listed as a contact in the table, please email Suzanne Shephard.
A "remarks" section of the report contains a brief statement of the disposition of most of the soldiers in the Regiment.
