Volunteers; organized at Nacogdoches about December 10, 1835, for the fighting at Bexar, but which arrived there after the surrender of Cos.
(4) The "Louisville Volunteers"; Captain H. R. A. Wigginton; a Kentucky Company which consisted originally of thirty-six men, commanded by Captain James Tarleton, which entered Texas along with Captains Wyatt's and King's companies, but separated from them between Nacogdoches and Washington and pushed forward to Bexar, where, under Captain Wigginton, they joined Johnson and Grant. This company became dissatisfied at Goliad and was broken up. Several of its members returned to Bexar, under Bowie, as members of Captain Baker's Company. Others joined Pearson's and Llewellyn's Companies and went forward to San Patricio with Johnson and Grant. A few remained at Refugio under Captain Edward Fuller and eventually enlisted in Captain Wyatt's Company.
(5) A small artillery company; Captain Thomas K. Pearson. The nucleus of this company was enlisted at New Orleans by Captain Pearson, who was an actor, from Philadelphia. It landed at Matagorda in November, 1835, but was detained on its march to Bexar by the slow progress of the eighteen-pounder cannon from the wreck of the San Felipe which it was detailed to escort, and so missed the fighting with Cos.
