The first class included members of the Old Three Hundred and soldiers, seamen, and citizens who could prove service in Texas between 1820 and October 15, 1836. The second class was made up of soldiers and sailors who could prove service between October 15, 1836, and November 1, 1837. The third class included those who had proof of service between November 1, 1837 and annexation in 1845.
