"Ballentine, John J. (Pennsylvania)
Ballantine, Richard W. (Scotland)"
Is there any further information about these two Alamo defenders? The second one especially is probably a long lost cousin, though the only members of the family that I know of in the America at this time are Robert Ballantine (b1839 in Edinburgh) who worked as a cabinet maker in San Francisco, and George Knox Ballantine (b1846 in Edinburgh) who served on the USS Tuscarona. Richard W could possibly be acousin of their father Peter.
