    Ennemond MEULLION was Spanish commandants of the Port of Rapides. He was
    a French surgeon of noble birth who came to Louisiana about 1770. Although at
    that time a Spanish province, he soon became prominent in its political
    affairs. He was born in Dauphiny, France, in 1737, and was the son of
    Ennemond MEULLION and Claudine BARRAL. He was first married at Point Coupee
    on September 3, 1773, to Anne STEPHEN, widow of Jacques DESAUTELS and daughter
    of Jean STEPHEN and Anne Francoise ROLAND. She died a few months after their
    marriage.

    In 1780 he married, as his second wife, Jeannette POIRET, the widow of
    Colonel LA MOTHE. She was the mother of Polycarpe LA MOTHE, after whom
    Lamothe's Bridge on Bayou Rapides is named. Jeannette POIRET was the daughter
    of Andre Claude Baptiste POIRET, the Chevalier de BRIE, who was commander at
    different times of Fort Chartres and Fort Kaskaskia. These forts were on the
    Mississippi River, near Cairo, ILL. Soon after his second marriage Ennemond
    MEULLION settled in Rapides and here his children were born.
    They were: Rosalie, who was born July 21, 1784; Jeannette, born May 13, 1786;
    Lucille, born April 24, 1787; Louis, born May 15, 1789; and Benoist, born May
    28, 1794.

    Of these children Rosalie MEULLION married William Willing WELLS, a
    brother of Samuel Levi WELLS. As her second husband she married Dr. John
    SIBLEY, and after his death she married William MARSHALL. She had children by
    the first and third husbands, and from them are descended the Branch TANNER,
    Alanson PEARCE, and MARSHALL families of Rapides.

    William Wells
    Age: 47
    Rank: Garrison Member
    Birthplace: Georgia
    William Wells, Alamo defender, son of Charles and Sarah (Lewis) Wells, was born at Hall County, Georgia, in 1789. He was the father of a son and daughter. He may have traveled to Bexar and the Alamo as a member of Capt. William H. Patton's company. Wells borrowed twenty dollars from Dr. John Sutherland to purchase a Yeager rifle, on his way to the Alamo. Wells died in the battle of the Alamo on March 6, 1836.

    The 1836 Battle

    On February 23, 1836, the arrival of General Antonio López de Santa Anna's army outside San Antonio nearly caught them by surprise. Undaunted, the Texians and Tejanos prepared to defend the Alamo together. The defenders held out for 13 days against Santa Anna's army.

    William B. Travis, the commander of the Alamo sent forth couriers carrying pleas for help to communities in Texas. On the eighth day of the siege, a band of 32 volunteers from Gonzales arrived, bringing the number of defenders to nearly two hundred. Legend holds that with the possibility of additional help fading, Colonel Travis drew a line on the ground and asked any man willing to stay and fight to step over — all except one did.

    As the defenders saw it, the Alamo was the key to the defense of Texas, and they were ready to give their lives rather than surrender their position to General Santa Anna. Among the Alamo's garrison were Jim Bowie, renowned knife fighter, and David Crockett, famed frontiersman and former congressman from Tennessee.

    The final assault came before daybreak on the morning of March 6, 1836, as columns of Mexican soldiers emerged from the predawn darkness and headed for the Alamo's walls. Cannon and small arms fire from inside the Alamo beat back several attacks. Regrouping, the Mexicans scaled the walls and rushed into the compound.

    Once inside, they turned a captured cannon on the Long Barrack and church, blasting open the barricaded doors. The desperate struggle continued until the defenders were overwhelmed. By sunrise, the battle had ended and Santa Anna entered the Alamo compound to survey the scene of his victory.

    While the facts surrounding the siege of the Alamo continue to be debated, there is no doubt about what the battle has come to symbolize. People worldwide continue to remember the Alamo as a heroic struggle against impossible odds — a place where men made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. For this reason, the Alamo remains hallowed ground and the Shrine of Texas Liberty.
