seemingly refers to this soldier, but is in error both as to his company and his name. Bounty and donation certificates were issued by the Commission of Claims to the heirs of Charles Lantz, he having "Fallen with Fannin." [Bounty and Donation Register, General Land Office.]
 

LEDBETTER, SNEADPrivate
AgeKing's Company

Ledbetter's pay was collected Nov. 25, 1840 by C. Dean, administrator, on the usual War Department certificate that his name appears as private on Captain King's muster roll on file and that he was entitled to pay from Dec. 27, 1835 to March 27, 1836. He was killed with his comrades of King's Command, either on March 14th or March 16th. His signature on Convention Memorial is Snead, while CMSR No. 195, State Library, has his first name, Sneed.
 

LEE, GREERPrivate
AgeWinn's Company

This name is written variously on the several rolls of Fannin's men, as "Grier", "Greer", and "George". "Greer" is adopted as representing the balance of probabilities. CMSR No. 147 shows that he was paid as "George" Lee. Thomas G. Gordon drew his pay on the customary certificate from the War Department that his name appeared on Captain Winn's muster roll on file, and that he was killed with Fannin's men.
