Smith, Joshua G.

Joshua G. Smith, was born in North Carolina but moved to Bastrop, Tex., as a young man. He enlisted in the Texas army as a private and, in early 1836, accompanied a segment of the army to San Antonio de Béxar. Smith died during the defense of The Alamo. As a result of his sacrifice, his descendants received land grants in the Montgomery and Shelby land districts of Texas.
