William Sanders Oury is an eyewitness to survive the Alamo. He was 15 at the time and Travis let Oury go to as a courier to seek aid from Sam Houston. All defenders of the Alamo perished. Oury married Inez Garcia in Durango Mexico and later moved to Tucson, Arizona and lived his life. He did not publish his experiences from his days with Travis at the Alamo. What we know was related later in his life. He is an Arizona Pioneer.
