About Albert Calvin Grimes

GRIMES, ALBERT CALVIN (1817–1836). Albert Calvin Grimes (listed incorrectly in some records as Alfred), Alamo defender, one of nine children of Martha (Smith) and Jesse Grimes, was born in Georgia on December 30, 1817. He lived in Texas near the site of present-day Navasota. He probably joined the Texas Army outside Bexar in late 1835 and fought in the battle of Concepcion and the siege of Bexar. On December 14, 1835, he volunteered for six months in the Corps of Artillery of the Army of Texas, serving as orderly sergeant in Capt. W. R. Carey’s company. While Grimes was besieged in the Alamo, his father signed the Texas Declaration of Independence, on March 2, 1836. Grimes died in the battle of the Alamo on March 6, 1836.
