These men were mostly from Hardy County West Virginia and gave their regiment the nickname of "The Hardy County Blues " during the Civil War. My grandfather Isaac N. Grapes was born in 1839 in Powder-spring Holler out by Fort Run, Hardy County, (W)Virginia. He is buried in a cemetery there and has a civil war tombstone. I recognized the names of several men buried in this same cemetery as being listed on the muster roll

Just a note. My source for the Muster Roll is the book called by H. M. Calhoun, a former Judge, Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia.
