CRAWFORD, LEMUEL (1814–1836). Lemuel Crawford, Alamo defender, was born in South Carolina in 1814. He enlisted in the service of Texas in early October 1835 and served until December 26 of that year as an artilleryman under Col. James C. Neill. He probably took part in the siege of Bexar. Crawford reenlisted on February 11, 1836, and served in the Alamo garrison, probably as a member of Capt. William R. Carey's artillery company. He died in the battle of the Alamo on March 6, 1836.
