Who was the Welshman at the Alamo?

For years it was claimed Lewis Johnson was from Wales. Research hasshown he came from Illinois. Also claimed is William Irvine Lewis, but he came  from Virginia. Early accounts list a W.T. Lewis, or a W.S. Lewis.Plus there is also a William S. Lewis who was a surveyor in the SanAntonio area in 1835. If anyone in the Lewis family has any details thatshow if they had a family member at the Alamo I would be very grateful to hear from them.See More
