|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
