BLOUNT, STEPHEN - The compiler is responsible for Mr. Blount’s name being omitted from the bronze plaque in the San Jacinto memorial monument on which are inscribed the names of the names of the Texans who were detailed to guard the battage at the camp opposite Harrisburg, April 21, 1836. The name should be added to the list.

Mr. Blount’s name appears on page 43 of the army rolls in the General Land Office as one of the men of Captain William H. Logan’s Company who were detailed to guard the baggage at the camp opposite Harrisburg, April 21, 1836. He was a member of Captain Andrew Briscoe’s company of Liberty Volunteers, November 21, 1835.
