Grant at Goliad, Jan. 20, 1836. Upon the arrival of Fannin and his men he enlisted, with others of his company, in Captain Duval's Company of Permanent Volunteers, and with it, on March 27th, shared the fate of Fannin's men.

In a memorandum, written in 1860, General Sam Houston remarked that he sent him to San Antonio with Bowie and Bonham on Jan. 17, 1836, with an express to blow up the Alamo, but the muster rolls clearly indicate that Charles R. Haskell was with Duval at Goliad on Feb. 29, 1836. [See Paralee Haskell to General Sam Houston, Jan. 30, 1860, Houston Letters, Archives, State Library.] It seems that Houston's messenger was Charles M. Haskell, a cousin, of about the same age.

AgeTicknor's Company

Hastie's sister, C. C. Tatom, widow of Memory B. Tatom, First Lieutenant of Ticknor's Company, wrote Lamar, March 6, 1837, an eloquent letter concerning the deaths of her husband, her brother, Henry Hastie, and her brother-in-law, Joseph B. Tatom. [Lamar Papers, No. 539.] She died a few weeks after this letter was written. It is worthy of note that almost 20 years elapsed after the issue of Tatom's certificates to his daughter's guardian before the Commission of Claims awarded bounty and donation certificates to the heirs of Henry Hastie; he having "Fallen with Fannin," on March 27, 1836.
