WILLIAM P. MOORE was born in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1817. He arrived at Velasco, January 28, 1836 on the schooner Pennsylvania, having been recruited in New Orleans for the army of Texas by Captain Amasa Turner.
He enlisted for two years, or the duration of the war. He was twenty-three years old; was 5 feet, 4 inches high; of dark complexion; had grey eyes and dark hair. Third Sergeant William Moore fought at the Battle of San Jacinto , under the command of Captain Richard Roman.
Before volunteering to go to Texas, William was a printer by trade in New Orleans, although he never returned to his civilian life, as he died in 1837 still a member of the Texas Army. His heirs received 640 acres of land for his participation at San Jacinto, but the actual location of his grave is lost in time.
