Thank you, John. It is good to hear from you also.
I am trying to better define the infantry company structure. In the Army I served in, we defined platoons, squads, and fire teams with specific numbers of lieutenants, sergeants, and corporals. I have not ever found that level of definition for Confederate companies. That is the information I am looking for. I will review the reference you provided.
Here is the information I have:
The following regulation defining the organization of troop units, without date, was probably issued about the middle of February, 1861.
Regulation for Organization of Troops, issued by Confederate States of America
I. Organization of Troops
. . .
3. A regiment is composed by law of ten companies, neither more nor less, which must all be of one arm. A battalion cannot be accepted as such with less than five companies, and is entitled to but one field officer unless the number of companies exceeds five.
4. A company must consist, if infantry, of at least sixty-four privates: . . . but no company shall contain more than 125, rank and file.
5. . . . The officers of the regimental staff – assistant quartermaster and commissary, surgeon, assistant surgeon, chaplain, and (when not already a lieutenant of the regiment) the adjutant . . .

The following information from a letter dated June 30, 1861, further defined the organization of troop units.
. . . each company to be composed of 1 captain, 1 first lieutenant, 2 second lieutenants, 4 sergeants, 4 corporals, 2 musicians, and from 64 to 100 privates.
Note: the above letter was addressed to the Governors of the States of Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama and Georgia. . .
