Andrew M. Nelson
Birth: 1809
Jefferson County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Mar. 6, 1836
San Antonio
Bexar County
Texas, USA

"Andrew M. Nelson was born about 1809 in Jefferson County, Tennessee. He probably came to Texas with David Crockett, as they were living in the same area in Tennessee. As he had not married, after he was killed at the Alamo, his mother, Elizabeth "Betsy" Mansfield Nelson, received many land grants in Texas for his service at the Alamo. These grants resulted in the Nelson families coming to Texas. Had it not been for Andrew's death at the Alamo, I would not be here today, as my great grandmother Nelson would not have met my great grandfather Terry. Thank you for your service, Uncle Andrew." "

From Ralph Terry, A Nephew

His middle initial M. is said to have been Mansfield or Moses. Mansfield was his mother's maiden name. Moses was his uncle's name. I have no proof for either name.

Lay down your arms, close your ranks, Rest in eternal peace. Rest easy, sleep well, my brothers. Know the line has held, your job is done, rest easy, sleep well. Others have taken up the line where you fell; the line has held. Peace, peace and farewell."
