of this roll was available until it was found (in Flag of the Union,
Tuscaloosa, Alabama, July 23, 1836) after the monument had been
engraved. Dr. Shackelford's roll shows that Brady [properly
Bracey], Gibbs, Humphries, and Penny, of Captain King's com-
pany, were with the "Red Rovers" on March 19 and could not
have been killed with Captain King on March 16. Dr. Shackelford
also notes that several men had joined his company only a few
days before its capture.
(b) Captured with Captain King, but not killed:
Ayers, Lewis Jenson, Charles
Dieterich, Francis Odlum, Benjamin D.
Fagan, Nicholas Osborn, Abraham H.
These were all spared by General Urrea, as colonists, except
Jenson, or Johnson, [Ehrenberg calls him a "Hamburger named
Gansen"] saved by Colonel Holsinger. John James of Refugio,
captured at this time, was spared for the time being, but was killed
at Goliad with Colonel Fannin's men.
