Fogle, Andrew

The Kemp Sketch (What is this?) | Download the original typescript

FOGLE, ANDREW -- The name Andreas Voyel on page 13 of the San Jacinto rolls printed in 1836 as a member of Captain Moseley Baker's Company. In Comptroller's Military Service Record No. 1797 Captain Alfred H. Wyly and Brigadier General Thomas J. Rusk certified that Andrew Fogle was recruited by Major Leander Smith on March 2nd, served in Captain Wyly's Company at San Jacinto, and was discharged July 27, 1836. On page 40 of the army rolls in the General Land Office in a statement signed by Adjutant General John A. Wharton in which he also said that Mr. Fogle participated in the battle. On December 9, 1837 Bounty Certificate No. 838 for 320 acres of land was issued in Mr. Fogle's name for his services in the army from March 2 to July 27, 1836. The certificate had been assigned.

Mr. Fogle probably left Texas shortly after being discharged from the army, since he did not apply for a headright or for the land due him for having participated in the Battle of San Jacinto.

Since neither headright, bounty or Donation Certificates were issued to Andreas Voyel the Compiler believes that Andreas Voyel and Andrew Fogle were one and the same and that he was transferred from Captain Baker's Company to Captain Wyly's Company without his name being removed from Captain Baker's Company.
