Franz Ferdinand Albrecht Ludwig von Roeder was born 1811 in Prussia. From November 3 to December 13, 1835, Roeder served in the Army of the Republic of Texas. He participated in the Siege of Béxar and after the fall of the Alamo, during the Runaway Scrape, helped the settlers rather than rejoin the army. Roeder and his brother-in-law were among forty volunteers ambushed by Comanche Indians near Yorktown on Escondido Creek east of the San Antonio River. They both survived, but many of the volunteers, including Capt. John York, were killed. Roeder died on June 11, 1857.
