He acquitted himself creditably during the fighting at Bexar, Dec. 5th - 10th, 1835, and was chosen to command one of the new companies organized, after the capitulation of Cos, to garrison Bexar.

His company, in late December, joined the Matamoros expedition, and marched with Grant to Goliad, and, in successive stages to Refugio and San Patricio, he and Pearson being the only captains to continue with Grant.

On the morning of March 2, 1836, while returning with Grant from an excursion to the Camargo ranches for horses, their party of twenty-three Americans and three Mexicans was ambuscaded at the forks of the Agua Dulce, by the Mexican cavalry, commanded by General Urrea and Colonel Garay. The Texans were strung out over a great distance, leading and driving their horses. Grant, Morris, Llewellyn and twelve of their men were killed; Placido Benavides and five Americans escaped, and two Mexicans and four Americans were made prisoners.
