reached Refugio and assumed command; and so were never regu-
larly enlisted in the service of Texas, nor became, except nomi-

4. Two companies, recruited by Captain Peyton S. Wyatt, of
Huntsville, Alabama, and at Paducah, Kentucky, and en route to
Texas, in November and December, 1835. Captain Wyatt left
Huntsville, November 8, with "fifty first rate U. S. Muskets," bor-
rowed by Captain Wyatt from the State of Alabama, and eighteen
men, and arrived at Nacogdoches, in December, with two com-
panies totaling sixty-seven men, being his own company, armed
with the U. S. muskets, and a "light company," armed with rifles,
nineteen men, commanded by Captain Amon B. King.
5. The four companies of the Georgia Battalion included:
(1) The "First Company," under Captain William A. O. Wads-
worth, enlisted at Columbus, Georgia, (home town of Colonel
Fannin, and of Mirabeau B. Lamar) but much enlarged by re-
cruiting at New Orleans and en route.
(2) The "Second Company," under Captain Uriah J. Bullock,
being one moiety of a very large company, enlisted at Macon,
Georgia, and vicinity, by Major William Ward. When this com-

measles and unable to travel, and he never thereafter rejoined it,
or exercised command.
(3) The "Third Company," under Captain James C. Winn, of
Gwinnett County, Georgia, being the second moiety of the large
company organized at Macon by Major William Ward. This com-
pany was also enlarged at the mouth of the Brazos, or en route;
the additions being, for the most part, Mississippi volunteers.
(4) The "Alabama Greys," under Captain Isaac Ticknor, re-
cruited by Edward Hanrick, at Montgomery, Alabama. This com-
pany arrived at the mouth of the Brazos only a few days before
Colonel Fannin sailed.
6. A company recruited by Captain Burr H. Duval, of Bards-
town, Kentucky; from which place he began his journey to Texas,

to more than twenty upon their arrival on the Brazos, the last
week in December, 1835.
