eThis is the list as found in the original, but the spelling of some of the names
has been changed to conform with that found in Alex Dienst, "The Navy of the
Republic of Texas," Quarterly of the Texas State Historical Association, XII; and
Amelia Williams and E. C. Barker (eds.), The Writings of Sam Houston (8 vols.;
Austin, 1938-1943). The names starred have a brief sketch given in The Writings of
Sam Houston. Dienst also states that Mellus did not serve on the Brutus but on the
Independence and the Invincible; that Galligar, although in the navy, did not
serve on the Brutus; and that Purser Leving of the Independence was the same as
Lieutenant Leving of the Invincible.
