Robert Evans, ordnance chief of the Alamo garrison, was born 1800 in Ireland. After the Siege of Béxar he served as master of ordnance of the San Antonio de Béxar garrison. Susanna W. Dickinson stated that during the final moments of the battle of the Alamo Evans attempted to blow up the Texans’ remaining supply of gunpowder with a torch. He was shot down before he could do so. Dickinson also described him as being black-haired, blue-eyed, nearly six feet tall, and always merry.
