P.S. The Waco- McClennan County Geneaology and Regular library also has
Ranger records and is on line If he served in the 1845 era in Mexico, the
Texas Stete Library in Austin may list him as a deserter. There have been
several PBS tv program , one telling how the Rangers in Mexico who were
skilled at shooting 10 or 12 shots with both hands struck terror in the
hearts of Mexican Indians and Comanches and Apaches and saved a pistol
company from bankruptcy, ewhen Taylor and others returned to Washington
saying Indian fighting soldiers should have 2 revolvers each, after the
Rangers saved his neck more than once.
