Alamo Defender. He was a farmer who left for Texas in 1830 with his family and arrived in DeWitt's Colony on January 10, 1831. He registered for twenty-four labores of land on the Guadalupe River above Gonzales and also for one labor on a small creek that empties into the Guadalupe. In September 1835, he was one of the original "Old Eighteen", defenders of the Gonzales cannon. On February 23, 1836, he was mustered into service in the Gonzales Ranging Company of Mounted Volunteers. He entered the Alamo garrison with this unit on March 1, 1836 and died five days later in the Battle of the Alamo.
