GAMBLE, D.Private
AgeShackelford's Company

D. Gamble was one of Shackelford's man carried on LOMR as having been massacred at Goliad March 27, 1836. This also appears from the original and all subsequent versions of the T&TR roll, and from the files of the General Land Office which show that bounty and donation certificates were issued by the Claims Commission to his heirs, he having "Fallen with Fannin."
 

GAMBLE, JOSEPHPrivate
AgeWadsworth's Company

Joseph Gamble was one of sixteen men detailed from Ward's Command, by the enemy, on March 22nd, to build a boat, all of whom subsequently escaped. He wrote Lamar from the Lavaca, Oct. 25, 1836, telling him that he had been ill and was badly off for clothing. But when he wrote he was apparently well and cheerful, and busily casting about for means of assigning his pay in order to meet his debts. [Lamar Papers, No. 470.] An account of his escape from the enemy is related under "A. J. Hitchcock."
