    Notes 
    • On December 22, 1842, Jesse Yocum was accidentally shot and killed, while a member of the Mier Expedition, by John Christopher C. Hill, aged fifteen, when Hill's gun discharged as the two youths were climbing a bullrush fence on their way back to camp.
          From the "Journal of the Texian Expedition Against Mier" by Gen. T.J. Green, 1845:
          " The advance reached the river about dusk, when a melancholy incident occurred by the accidental discharge of a gun, and the killing of one of the smallest boys in the army. This youth, by the name of Yocum, aged fourteen years, was one of the very few troops we had from the county of Liberty, was in a high degree manly for his age, and deserved a better fate."
