The Telegraph and Texas Register Roll

This 1936 Telegraph and Texas Register roll of Fannin's men is from the Texas Almanac for 1860, pp. 88-91, reprinted from a clipping supplied, with other information, by Captain John C. P. Kennymore, a Fannin survivor who was later an officer in the Army of the Republic of Texas. Symbols "$" and "%" are substitutions for the original symbols. (See also roll in alphabetical order.)



After a delay of several weeks, and incredible trouble, in order to render the following muster-roll as free from inaccuracies as possible, we present it to the public for the information of the relatives of the deceased.

The original muster and descriptive rolls of the different companies were destroyed with the other papers belonging to the executive department, on the conflagration of San Felipe; and we are aware that errors may exist, notwithstanding all our pains and trouble.

The subject of the massacre of Col. Fannin and his brave associates, has been so often the theme of discussion and universal animadversion, that we might be excused, on the present occasion, from offering further remarks; but the unprovoked, cold-blooded, unnecessary murder committed on those illustrious champions of Texas liberty can never be forgotten, nor exhausted in its narration. Veneration for the memory of the deceased requires it, and the interests of Texas demand it, because they were our friends, our relatives, and our defenders; and the reminiscence of the event serves as a stimulus to deeds of valor which will accomplish the salvation of Texas.

The * indicates those who were marched out to be massacred, but fortunately made their escape; the $, those who were detained as surgeons and laborers; and



the %, those who made their escape from Col. Ward's division, on his retreat, and did not fall into the hands of the enemy.
