    This pay record for a soldier in the Texas Army was used as proof for hundreds of Texas soldiers who later made land claims for 1280 acres each. James L. Vaughan used it to claim thousands of additional acres, taking advantage of the deal General Houston made with his soldiers. Family records, census records, army records, and land records indicate that the parts unknown where the Virginia-born James L. Vaughan vanished did indeed turn out to be Texas. The war records of the Army of the Republic of Texas show that James L. was another Tennessean who answered the call to fight against Santa Anna. Though an adoptive son of Tennessee, as he was born in Virginia, he did well in the fight and the new Republic gave him a lot of land for his help.

    ________________________________________________________________________________________________
    This second document, a scribbled, detailed record of the first transaction, addresses “Washington,” and also W.B. Travis is mentioned. “Washington” refers to Washington on the Brazos, near present day Navasota in Grimes County where JLV was probably present when the first government of Texas began on March 2, 1836 on the banks of the Brazos River.
    William B. Travis was Colonel at the Alamo in San Antonio. He died March 6 leading the defenders of the doomed mission, along with Davy Crockett and many other volunteers from Tennessee. Happily, James L. Vaughan’s pay sheet is dated March 8, Washington, proving him to be with his more fortunate fellow Texians as they began the call to, “Remember the Alamo!” in the continued fight against Santa Anna.

    Military services were actually rendered by James L. Vaughan at least from 17 Oct 1835 to 24 March 1836.

    During this period of time he probably fought in the Battle of Concepcion, 28 Oct 1835; the Battle of Goliad, 9 Oct 1835; the Battle of Gonzales, 2 Oct 1835; and attended the surrender of Mexico’s General Cos in San Antonio, 10 Dec 1835. His service is indicated by three original pay sheets, with transcriptions. This type of proof was later required in claiming the land President Houston offered his soldiers after the war:
