William Scurlock was a early settler and participant in the Texas Revolution. He was the brother of Mial Scurlock that died in the Alamo. According to family tradition, he studied medicine for several years before moving to Texas. Although he did not work as a physician the training served to save his life. He participated in most of the early conflicts of the Texas War of Independence and became to be known as the "Man with the Charmed Life." He lived near here which is close to San Augustine Texas and he enlisted in Capt. Henry Augustine's company of the revolutionary army. He went to Bexar (San Antonio) where he fought in the battle of Concepcion in 1835 and also fought in the Grass Fight near Bexar. He then became a member of the Matamoros expedition and fought at Agua Dulce Creek. He then joined a company of men under Col. James Fannin's command in Goliad. After being taken prisoner at the battle of Coleto Creek he was made a medical assistant and spared from the Goliad Massacre. After the battle of San Jacinto, Gen Jose Urrea was ordered to withdraw his army from Texas. Scurlock and several other prisoners were to accompany the Mexican wounded. On the retreat to Copano Bay, Scurlock escaped and returned to San Augustine. Grave location N31.46676 W93.98524
