Obviously Groneman did not research Lewis Johnson. He was my 3rd great grand uncle.. I am not an expert but easily found more information than Groneman. He was born in VA in 1813. He came to Texas with his family: James Johnson Sr, - father, Ann Mary Wilson, of VA, mother brother Francis and William, sister Sarah Jane. He was a Pvt in the Texas Army and had been trained at Cibolo, Tx. He and his brother Francis were at the Siege of Bexar. He was one of the first 13 Privates in the Texas Army, at the time of the Alamo, He was with the Texas Army from October 1835 till its fall March 6, 1836. The whole Johnson family came to Texas in 1829. Lewis was from the Justice District of Texas. His brother Francis was killed by Comanche in October 1867, and later many of his neice and nephews were killed
