William R. Rhodes Pardon?

A descendant of the William Rhodes family sent this comment:

"William R. Rhodes was husband of Amanda Lindsey, youngest dau of Charles and Polly Lindsey... The story in our family is that Amanda Lindsey wrote letters to officials of Texas, and finally gained a pardon and acquittal for William R. Rhodes (sometimes spelled Rhoades and even Rodes)."

We would very interested to know if Amanda Lindsey Rhodes was granted a pardon and acquittal for her husband, William R. Rhodes. Anyone live in the Austin area that can do some research in the State Archives and report back?
