Alan and Mitchell-
Thank you for your help with 40H company Parrott Rifles. I've seen it listed as Parrot and Parrott. Do you happen to know how they come up w/ the name for each Company? Was it b/c they were using that weaponry or was it coincidental that it says it was formed by Capt. William S. Parrott-my ancestor- (same name as weapon inventor Robert P. Parrott)? I'm curious if it is mere coincidence or if they name each company whatever they liked. Thanks in advance for any insight.
