This information was taken from a partial list of members of the 5th Kentucky (Mounted) Infantry. I was interested in these records since they included members from Lawrence County, KY where my McCormick and Thompson family ancestors lived.

In collecting this information on the unit in which my gg-grandfather served, I discovered that there were three different units which were referred to as the "5th Kentucky". I received a nice explanation of that from Geoff Walden who has a site on the " Orphan Brigade" of Kentucky. My ancestor's "5th Kentucky" was not part of the Orphan Brigade. The Orphan Brigade contained one of the other "5th Kentucky's" If you want to learn more about the Orphan Brigade, you should check out the site that Geoff runs along with Laura Cook.
