certificate No. 989 issued to the heirs of Green B. Buchanan on January 2, 1840, for "his having been killed at Goliad under Col. Fannin."
CARLSON, WILLIAM S. - This name appears on the Almanac list but not on the Davenport list. The heirs of William S. Carlson were issued bounty warrant No. 921 for 1920 acres on September 2, 1851. No survey was made on this warrant and therefore there is no GLO File. On page 506 of "Court of Claims Bounty Register, Warrants Nos. 1 to 4499: 1-11-37 to 12-4-38," (MSS. in General Land Office) is a notation beside this name and number which reads, "Massacred with Fannin." GLO File Fannin Donation No. 1499 has donation certificate No. 378 issued to the heirs of William S. Carlson for "his having fallen with Fannin."
COLSTON, JOHN (alias WILLIAM S.), and/or COULSON, JOHN (alias WILLIAM S.) - This name is not on the Almanac list. Davenport lists a "William John Colston." GLO File Fannin Bounty No. 204 has bounty warrant 2852 issued to the heirs of J. (alias William S.) Colston for 1920 acres. The warrant was issued by the secretary of war on April 12, 1838, for his service "from the 15th day of February 1836 to the 27th day of March 1836 having been killed with Fannin." GLO File Bexar Bounty No. 1025 has bounty warrant No. 138 issued by the adjutant general on November 5, 1846, to the heirs of William S. Coulson for his "having been killed in the Massacre at Goliad with Col. Fannin." GLO File Fannin Bounty No. 204 shows that warrant No. 2852 was rejected by the Court of Claims on June 14, 1860, with the explanation that a bounty warrant had been issued in the name of William S. Coulson indicating that William S. Colston and William S. Coulson were one and the same person. Six hundred and forty acres already patented on rejected warrant No. 2852 were not cancelled as the Court of Claims could not cancel a patented survey. Donation certificates were issued to: (1) the heirs of William S. Carlson (see Fannin Donation File No. 1499), (2) to the heirs of John (alias William S.) Colston (see GLO File San Patricio Donation No. 143) and (3) to the heirs of John (alias William S.) Coulson (see Bexar Donation File No. 1026). All three donation certificates stated that they were issued for the
