(What is this?) | Download the original typescript

BEEBE, JOHN N. -- Was a member of Captain Henry Teal's Company of Regulars at San Jacinto. On page 128 of the Army rolls in the General Land Office he is shown as a member of Captain Teal's' company, June 30, 1836 and is shown as having enlisted in the army February 4, 1836. On page ___ he is shown as a musician in Captain __________ Company. On page ___ he is shown as having died October 7, 1836, while a member of Captain Jacob Snively's Company.

The compiler does not know when Mr. Beebe came to Texas since his heirs did not receive the headright, bounty and Donation Certificates he was entitled to receive. Evidently he did not arrive before the year 1835 for had he done so he would most likely have received a grant of land from the Mexican Government.
