While she appears on no roster, Kady Brownell by most accounts served as “daughter of the regiment” and color bearer for the regiment at First Bull Run. Her husband Robert Brownell was in Co. H, and she joined him with the regiment in the field. Her pension record (see below) notes her as a member of Co. H.
