in the American Civil War

Regimental History
Sixty-second Indiana Infantry. — Authority was given William Jones, of Rockport, in the fall of 1861, to organize the 62nd regiment in the 1st Congressional district, with Rockport as the rendezvous. The attempt to raise the regiment was unsuccessful and the companies and recruits were consolidated with the 53d regiment on Feb. 26, 1862, serving with that regiment during its term of service. Col. Jones was made lieutenant- colonel of the 53d.
