Alamo Defender. He was a native Texan, who enlisted for six months service in the Texas Revolution under the command of Captain Juan N. Seguín. He took part in the siege of Bexar and served in the Alamo garrison as a member of Captain Seguín's company, known as the Tejandos. He was one of 24 native Texans who died in the battle of the Alamo. Nava's half-brother and sister, put forth a application for a grant of land for his service in the Revolution but on March 25, 1861, a note was placed in their file stating that they were too poor to carry the claim any further.
