LEVENMAN, FREDERICKPrivate
AgeWyatt's Company

No name on Fannin's roster has given more trouble to students and copyists than this. It has been variously written "Sweman", "Seveman", and "Siebenman." I have followed his personal signature "F. Levenman" on the Convention Memorial, which seems perfectly plain, although the initial letter for the surname may, conceivably, have been intended as an "S".

[Ed: Three years later, in "THE MEN OF GOLIAD", Davenport said that there is substantial evidence that the name "Frederick Sevenman," should be "Frederick Seibenman." See Appendix A, page A37.]

LEVERETT, OSCAR F.Private
AgeTicknor's Company

Leverett's pay was drawn Oct. 3, 1854 by W. Stedman, attorney for M. Leverett, on certificate of James S. Gillett, Adjutant General, that his name appears as a private in the company of Capt. Ticknor who was massacred with Fannin, and that bounty and donation warrants had been issued to his heirs. [Public Debt Papers, State Library.]
 

LEWIS, ABRAHAMPrivate
AgeWinn's Company

Abraham Lewis was mustered into the service of Texas, with Winn's Company, Dec. 23, 1835, but the LOMR notation opposite his name is "Left Jan. 8th."
