[4 Or Jos6 Maria Mendez. This was a Mexican fifer boy captured at
San Jacinto by Monroe Hill, whose name appears in the list above. Mendez
was offered permission to return to Mexico if he chose, but he preferred to
remain in Texas rather than be forced into the Mexican army again, which
he feared would be the result if he went home. He lived with the family
of Mr. Asa Hill, Monroe Hill's father. Afterwards he became a silver-
smith in Houston, where he died of yellow fever sometime late in the 40's.
These facts are furnished by Mr. Monroe Hill.-G. P. G.]
