Being a monumental event in the Texas Revolution, The Battle of the Alamo was a thirteen-day battle at the Alamo Mission near San Antonio. In the early morning of the final battle, the Mexican Army advanced on the Alamo. Quickly being overrun, the Texian Soldiers quickly withdrew inside the building.

Name Meaning

Altered form of French Rémy (see Remy ).

French: derivative of Old French ra(i)m ‘branch’ (from Latin ramus), hence a topographic name for someone who lived in a thickly wooded area.

History: This surname (see 1 above) is listed along with its original form Rémy in the (US) National Huguenot Society's register of qualified Huguenot ancestors. Many of its bearers are descendants of Jacques Rémy, born c. 1630 in France, who by 1672 lived in Westmoreland County, VA, where he died in 1721.
