KERR, LEWIS H.Private
Age 33Llewellyn's Company
Philadelphia

In a list of the prisoners of the Johnson and Grant party confined at Matamoros in April, 1836, published in the Philadelphia National Gazette for May 5, 6 and 19, 1836, [Winston, Quarterly, XVII, p. 268,] is the name of Lewis H. Kerr, of Pennsylvania, aged 33. The name of "L. H. Kerr" also occurs on Pittman's muster roll of Llewellyn's Company.

Kerr was evidently one of the eight men under Pittman captured by Urrea at San Patricio on Feb. 27, 1836, and sent with three of Pearson's men, and three others of Llewellyn's taken at Agua Dulce, to become "Prisoners of Matamoros."
