RHORER, CONRAD - Wagonmaster at the camp opposite Harrisburg April 21, 1836. His name does not appear on any of the army rolls in the General Land Office and it was not on the San Jacinto rolls printed in 1836. Yet on November 4, 1848 Donation Certificate No. 135 was issued in his name due him for having participated in the battle of San Jacinto.

Mr. Rhorer died in 1848. Boutny Certificate No. 479 for 320 acres of land was issued in his name November 4, 1858 and delivered to his heirs for his services in the army for three months, dates of enlistment and discharge not being given.
