PARKER, WILLIAM S.Private
AgeWyatt's Company

William S. Parker was paid only from Feb. 23 to March 27, 1836, indicating that he was a member of Wigginton's Company of "Louisville Volunteers" and did not enroll in Wyatt's company before the February date. Curtis M. Jackson, administrator, collected his pay. [CMSR No. 9507, State Library.] All sources agree that he was a victim of the general massacre of March 27, 1836.
 

PARKS, WILLIAMPrivate
Age"Fannin's Company"

"William Parks" is included here out of deference to Albert Sidney Johnston's certificate, as Secretary of War, that it appeared from muster rolls on file that he was entitled to pay as a private in "Fannin's Company" from Oct. 7, 1835, to March 27, 1836.

Henry Parker, administrator, collected his pay. [CMSR No. 8723, State Library.] It is likely that "William S. Parker" was the soldier meant, and that "Parks" is only an error in copying the roll.   [Ed: Bounty & Donation grants to "William Parks" for "having fallen in the Alamo" (Miller 1967).]
 

PARVIN, WILLIAMPrivate
AgeWinn's Company

Of William Parvin no more is known than that his name appears on LOMR and all versions of the T&TR roll as a private in Winn's Company who perished in the general massacre at Goliad, March 27, 1836.
