Asa Yeamans, was his administrator, and R. R. Royall, as his agent, collected his pay. [CMSR No. 9206, State Library.]

On Sept. 28, 1836, Asa Yeamans addressed to the First Congress of the Republic of Texas, the first of many petitions for relief filed by survivors of Fannin's men. He represented

"That he is now a very old man and is in indigent circumstances. That he had two sons, the hope and support of his declining years, youths aged 18 and 20. That the country called for the services of these in the field, and they answered the call. They were of the garrison of Goliad ... the humble dwelling which was once cheered by their presence is now occupied by their mother and father only, they are alone." [Memorial, No. 1, File Box No. 99, Archives, Dept. of State, State Library.]

AgeWinn's Company

William W. Yearly was duly mustered into the service of Texas with Captain Winn's Company, Dec. 23, 1835. He was, apparently, absent from the muster on Feb. 29, 1836, but there now appears on the LOMR opposite his name the notation "Cert. issued Jan. 18, 1855." He was returned as a deserter on another phase of Winn's roll.
