No further info for this company.

-----

There were Regiments 1,2,3,4, and 5, plus Independent Companies plus the 15th Regiment with Companies B,C,D,H, and I). Regiment 5 was officially called 2nd Regiment 2d.

There was no 6th Regiment of Ohio Volunteers in the Mexican War that I can find.

I hope that one of the above will match your William Charles Brown! Good luck!
