  • Notes 
    • *Twin to Rhesa.

      - At the storming of Savannah he was wounded and taken prisoner. In warding off a blow directed at his head by a British officer, his hand was nearly severed by the saber of the Englishman. While confined in Savannah his wounds were dressed by the patriotic women of that city, among whom was Elve Ap-Catesby Jones. They were married in 1782.

      - Rezin was "well known in the south-west by his many deeds of valor in its early history among the Mexicans and savages."
