  There were most definately native born Texans who died defending the Alamo. Among those agreed upon were:

Juan Abamillo of San Antonio

Juan Badillo of San Antonio

Carlos Espalier of San Antonio

Gregorio Esparza of San Antonio (An expert artilleryman).(His wife and children were present at the Alamo. They were spared, and his 12 year old son, Enrique ,was able to give an account of some of the battle).

Antonio Fuentes of San Antonio

Andres Nava of San Antonio

  Some accounts also include Toribio Domingo Losoya, a member of Juan Seguin's company.

  They were mostly locals, who could have sat out the event. But they felt that their rights were violated by the Mexican government, so they chose to fight.

  They were Texas heroes, and their place in history should not be overlooked.
