PARROTT, C.W.--Name omitted from the official San Jacinto rolls printed in 1836. In Comptroller's Military Service Record No. 4428, Captain Robert J. Calder certified that Mr. Parrott served in his company from March 22 to June 20, 1836. He stated he was detailed April 21st as a stewart in the hospital and that his name was unintentionally omitted form the Rolls. He was issued Donation Certificate No. 75 for 640 acres of land for his participation in the Battle of San Jacinto. He received Bounty Certificate No. 269 for 320 acres of land for serving in the army from March 1 to June 1, 1836.
In an unnumbered Headright for one-third of a league of land issued to him by the Fort Bend County Board of Land Commissioners it is stated that Mr. Parrott came to Texas before March 2, 1936. The certificate was lost and a duplicate was issued. The land was surveyed in Karnes and Wilson Counties in 1840.
Mr. Parrott was a charter member of St. John (Masonic) Lodge No. 5 at Columbia, Brazoria County, May 15, 1838.
