Antonio De Los Santos Coy was my Great-Great-Grandfather. He was a soldier in the Texas Revolutionary War. Records show that he petitioned the State of Texas in 1949 for a pension for his service in the Texas Revolution. He received a pension. He was the father of Juan Coy who was the father of Victoriano Coy who was my Grandfather. We also trace the father of Antonio De Los Santos Coy to be Jose Segundo De Los Santos Coy. My Grandfather, Victoriano Coy came to the Austin-Bastrop Texas area about 1912 and we have been here ever since. We know the story of Juan Coy, his life as an Outlaw and a Lawman. He was killed in a gunfight on South Laredo in San Antonio on January 25, 1892.In his 20's, records show, he was a soldier for the North durng the Civil War. We are also aware of the stories of his cousins Jacobo and Andres Coy who were Lawmen in San Antonio.
