JONES, DAVID J.Private
AgePettus' Company

David J. Jones was one of nine volunteers sent by the Council Advisory Commission on Feb. 9, 1836, to reinforce Fannin at Goliad. He transferred to Pettus' Company, and at the massacre was one of those who made his escape. The AGO certificate as to his fate is the most unusual to be found on the roll of Fannin's men. It is: "Escaped from massacre; was executed for murder, March 27, 1838." He was hanged at Houston just two years after having escaped from the massacre.
 

JONES, FRANCISPrivate
AgeHorton's Company

It appears from LOMR of Captain A. C. Horton's Company with Fannin's Goliad Command during the campaign of March, 1836, that Francis Jones was a private in that company who escaped capture on March 19, 1836, through being with Captain Horton in Col. Fannin's advance guard.
