who had been Colonel Fannin's Commissary, was spared under the

All of these men came to Texas with Captain Peyton S.
Wyatt's Company, but were not returned as members of that com-
pany, nor of any other company, on Colonel Fannin's muster rolls
for February 29-March 1, 1836. Eadock, or Eddick, and
John Ward signed the memorial of the volunteers at Refugio to
the Washington Convention about February 5, after Captain
Wyatt's departure for the United States. The heirs of Chambers,
and of both Wards (not related) were granted bounty and donation
lands for their having been "Killed with Fannin," on proof that
these soldiers came to Texas with Captain Wyatt's Company;
never returned; and were never heard from by friends or relatives
after the killing of Colonel Fannin's men. Hamlet's heirs made
similar proof. Nothing has been found in the official records, or
elsewhere, to explain their fate.
