Thanks for your suggestion, I found my gr gr grandfather on page 189, and his brother on 190. The book is a great reference. I also found they served with a number of others from Rusk Co. TX.

James and William's half uncle was Captain James Smith. Through their father's second marriage to Permelia Lusk whose mother was Barsheba Harrington Smith Lusk.

Barsheba was the only woman according to the Texas General Land Office to be awarded an unconditional land grant by the Republic of Texas.
