After being drafted into federal service for WW1 the 10th Ohio was divided between the elements of the 73rd and 74th Infantry Brigades, 37th Division.

A detachment of the 10th Ohio was also incorporated into the 62nd Field Artilley Brigade, 37th Division.

I'm not 100% sure on this point but I think Company H, 10th Ohio was based at Youngstown and had originally been Company H, 5th Ohio.  I think it was reassigned to the 10th Ohio after the 5th Ohio was mustered out of Federal service after serving on the Mexican border.

Hi,

 

National Guard units lost their state designations when they were drafted into federal service.  Some were kept together in new units (for example, the 4th Ohio Infantry was used as the base regiment to organize the 145th Infantry) while others were broken up with their personnel being scattered among a number of different commands.  The 10th Ohio Infantry fell into the latter category, with its personnel being distributed as follows:

 

Cos. I, K, L, & M: 136th Machine Gun Battalion

Cos. A, B, part of G, & Machine Gun Company: 135th Machine Gun Battalion

Co. C & part of Co. G.: 112th Trench Mortar Battery

Hq. Co. (less band), Sup. Co., & Cos. D, E, F, H, & part of G: 134th Machine Gun Battalion

Band: Camp Sherman, Ohio
