The names below comprise a very incomplete roster of Henry County men who served in the Confederate Army from Henry County. Many were obtained from an Index of Confederate Pension Applications (Commonwealth of Kentucky) compiled by Alicia Simpson. Mildred Carr excerpted Henry countians from this index. Additional names, biographical information, and service records were gleaned from sources such as Henry County Cemetery records, the Adjutant General's Report (Confederate), and Perrin's History of Kentucky.
