Alamo Defender. In 1829, he moved to Texas with his family. On September 24, 1835, being from the Trinity jurisdiction, he entered service as a volunteer in Captain Robert M. Coleman's First Company of the revolutionary army. He was one of the thirteen privates in that company at Camp Cibolo on October 17, 1835, and one of the eighteen noncommissioned officers and privates of that company in the First Division of Colonel John H. Moore's regiment at Camp Salado on October 21, 1835. He and his brother Frank participated in the siege of Bexar, after which his brother was honorably discharged and returned to his family in the Nacogdoches Municipality. Lewis, who was unmarried, chose on November 24, 1835, to remain at Bexar under the command of General Edward Burleson. On December 14, 1835, he volunteered to garrison Bexar under the command of Lieutenant Colonel James C. Neill. In February 1836 he entered the Alamo garrison and died in the battle of the Alamo. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
