Subject: Ancestors of Samuel Crockett from PA
My line comes from Samuel Crockett (b 1759 Cumberland Co. PA, d 1841 Robertson Co. TN) whose wife was Sarah Wilson (1766-1847) also from PA. Does anyone have any information/speculation on Samuel and/or Sarah's parents? I would appreciate any insights.
Thanks,

Subject: Cumberland Co, PA Crocketts (Agnes McGovney et al.)
Date: Mon, 07 Apr 1997
For James McGovney & Agness ("Nancy") Crockett and the Cumberland Co, PA Crocketts,
I am not aware of any link to Anthony (Antoine). Is it documented? "Nancy" was once a nickname for women named Agnes/Agness. James Crocket(t), prob. born 1720s, one of three brothers residing on north bank of Yellow Breeches Creek (YBC), in Cumb. Co (from Lancaster Co 1750), SE of Carlisle. William Crocket, across YBC, was brother or relative.

LWT of James Crocket, Allen Twp, Cumberland Co, PA, Book E, page 205, dated 16 July (codicil 17 July) 1790 was proved 31 Dec 1790. It names wife: Margaret; son: John; daughters: Elizabeth (wife of Thomas McCormick); Agness (wife of James Magovney); Mary (Brodrick); Margaret (wife of Robert Thompson); Jean; Rebecka. Exec's: Wife Margaret, son John, and trusty friend Thomas Johnston. Wit.: George Dickie, James Crocket, Wm Scott.

LWT of Samuel Martin, of Allen, d 2 March 1781, p 2 July 1785: wife (name not shown); sons Samuel, Andrew, Thomas; dau. Margaret Crocket (and her son John) and Jean Bringham.

A query in files of Cum. Co. Hist. Soc. at Carlisle asks about Agnes and has 1750 for birth; 1778/79 for marriage; died Adams Co, OH. Other sources show Agnes had sister Elizabeth McCormick born ca 1759 who moved with Thomas McCormick [1754-- 1826] ca 1775 to Lycoming Valley in PA. Also, Rebecca (exec'd Margaret's LWT 1813) marr. Jacob Edelblute; Huntingdon Co.

George Crocket died 1782. LWT d 2 May 1782, p 31 Oct 1782 (D, 122) named brothers James and Andrew and sisters, nieces, and nephews. James McGovney was witness. James Crocket died in 1790, leaving a LWT described above. Andrew Crocket LWT d 15 Oct 1791, p 14 Nov 1791. Wife: Elizabeth. Minors: James, Sarah, Andrew ("three youngest"). Daughters: Elizabeth (McGowan); Alice (Keepers, mother of Andrew Keepers).

James, George, and Andrew had sisters Catherine Hasson (possibly w/o Jonathan); Margaret; and Martha (married whom?) who had daughter Betsey by 1791. Most of their lands were on the north bank of YBC opposite other Crocketts. Andrew warranted "Dalebrook" and "Springfield". George "Hopewell" and "Ringsend".  James "Allenbury" and "Fairfield", a little of which was on south side of YBC. Sometimes the heirs completed the patent process.

Norman Keefer, Hist. of Mechanicsburg, PA, p 93 (1976) says they got land in 1748, but I have not been able to find this.  
Also, that one brother "built Fairfield Hall and a modern brick homestead. Another built . . . Rose Balcony. The third brother erected a large stone home across from Allenberry." He then mistakenly tries to connect them with the Davy Crockett family.

In 1755 James, Andrew, and George were old enough to wit. deed for land by the Boiling Spring. It seems clear that the six were not children of William [d ca 1772] of south bank of YBC. Of whom then? One possibility is Alexander Crocket. The 1750 East Pennsborough Twp tax list has one Alex Crocket and one William Crocket. On 9 June 1750 Samuel Culberson bought land adjoining Alexander Crocket and Widow Rankin; his survey 7 May 1753 shows on west "James Crocket formerly Alexr Crocket". No tax list for 1751, 1752. The E. Pennsb. tax list for 1753 has one William, James, George, and William jr. Another 1753 list was made when Allen was formed from E. P.; it has three Williams, one James, and one George. So Alexander may have died between 1750--1753.
But why was no one named for him? Crocketts on both sides of YBC used William, James, John, and George as most frequent men's names. Explanation needed.

The William on the south side of YBC died ca 1772, ten years before George [died 1782] and so, even if he were a brother, would not have been named in George's LWT. William could have been the William junior of 1753. This is far too speculative!
William's children were James [d by 1806] m: Catherine Chestnut; George [1762/63--1835] m:Jane; Mary (John Graham); Martha (Wm Barber); Elizabeth (Jacob Miller); Catharine. The last to carry the Crockett name in Cumb. Co seems to have been James Crocket, William's grandson, buried Churchtown 1856. Outside PA, Wm's great-grandson, James R., s/o John [d 1728] and Keziah (Kurtz) was taken to Stark Co OH by guardian Adam H. Baughman by 1838.

Other James Crocket records:
(1) 1750 Lancs. Co, PA, James Crocket wit. LWT (J1-211) of John Rinkin 1 Feb 1749/50, proved 25 Feb 1749/50. Crockets were neighbors of Rinkin/Rankin/Renkin family. Richard Rankin had land on E of Crocketts.
(2) Richard Reinkin and James Crocket wit. LWT of John Dickey 1773.
(3) Richard Rankin and James Crockit wit. LWT of John McNeal in 1777.
(4) Martha Long (widow of John) and James Crocket exec's of LWT (1764) of James Long of Allen Twp, neighbor of Samuel Martin and others. Wm Crocket was a witness.
(5) 1771 James Crocket was exec of James Cragehed.
(6) 1771 James wit. LWT of James Reed. Did James marry first a Rankin or was he only being neighborly as witness?

YBC was site of iron works next to Crocketts. Boiling Springs was laid out 1845 on former Dickey land; later became vacation and tourist site. James's land on YBC was sold to George Beltzhoover by exec's in 1798, but area is still called Allenbury. A modern resort on land now has a "Crockett Room".

Some other Crocketts of original Cumb. Co went to Robertson Co, TN. In modern terms they were from Wild Cat Creek, Perry Co, PA.
I am very new to Internet and this list. Have been looking at Robert Crockett, arrived 1730, lived Lancaster Co PA 1730s, got land near Staunton, VA, some children to SC. Started sorting PA Crocketts and have mostly misc. notes. Can also be reached at

Subject: Crocketts in PA
Date: Fri, 02 May 1997
It may be difficult to connect William Crockett, born 1709, to James of Cumberland Co, PA. When you find the father of James, you will find also the father of George, Andrew, Margaret, Catherine, and Martha. Possibly of William [d ca 1771], too; but there is no formal proof that the Crockets who lived next to each other were related, as likely as it seems. Here are some PA data.
* Cumberland Co, Pa (CCPA here for short) was formed from Lancaster Co in 1750. The site chosen for county seat was named Carlisle. Tax lists survive for some but not all townships 1750--1753. After a gap, from 1762 on records are better. Deeds, wills, and Orphans Court records are in reasonably good shape. So far, no Lancaster Co records add anything of value about this line. PA land records before 1732 are not very good. Pennsylvania (including the three "lower counties" known as Delaware) was real estate owned by the Penn family (The Proprietors). Before Mason and Dixon surveyed, PA and MD  disagreed about the boundaries.
* There is no proof of a connection to any other Crockett family, at least not in CCPA or Lancs. Co. records examined so far.  
* Proof that Agness McGovney, wife of James, was a daughter of James Crocket, is LWT of James Crocket, of Allen Twp, Book E, p 205, dated 16 July (codicil 17 July) 1790, proved 31 Dec 1790.
Same LWT proves James's widow was Margaret. Sale of James's land 28 June 1798 in Book N, 305 by exec's refers to LWT. Not proved but most likely that Margaret was daughter of Samuel Martin named in his LWT dt 2 March 1781, pr 2 July 1785. No proof either way that Margaret was only wife of James. Very weak hint that James first married a Rankin, as he witnessed Lancs. Co LWT (J1-211) of John Rinkin, dt 1 Feb 1749/50, pr 25 Feb 1749/50.  
* LWT of George Crocket, of Allen, dt 2 May 1782, pr 31 Oct 1782 [No #88, D, 122] (wit. by James McGovney) proves James, Andrew, and George were brothers and had three sisters. Probate got complicated because executors of James and Andrew had to take over for them as executors George. Warrants, surveys, and patents at Harrisburg show Andrew chose land on west, George between, and James on east (adding to land once Alexander's); all three on west and north side of Yellow Breeches Creek.
* Deed of 17 April 1755, in Book 2A, 62: John Reed Senr, Middle Pennsborough, Middleton Twp, to son Robert, wit. by George, Andrew, James Crockett. So they were likely born late 1720s-- early 1730s, that is IF all were 21 when witnessing.
* Proof that James had land formerly owned by Alexander Crocket can be found in deed H-1, p 112 as part of the chain and on the survey of 7 May 1753 for William Culbertson. Alex. taxed 1750, not 1753 (no lists between). Nothing found yet indicates whether Alexander died 1750-1753 leaving land. He could have sold it or given it away, and moved. Maybe he was their father, maybe not.
OTHER PA CROCKETTS* Besides Boiling Springs Crocketts, there was one William Crockett on Wildcat Creek in what is now Greenwood Twp, Perry Co, PA (formed from CCPA in 1820). William applied for land 24 Dec 1771. He died after 1790 census. Let. Admin. dated 4 July 1792 in CCPA. He left widow Margaret [born 1734, Ire.]. They named children Samuel [1759, PA--1841, TN], James [d Sept 1795, PA], John, and William. Samuel was in militia there, not in Mass as has been claimed! Family moved to Robertson Co, TN, Samuel first, others later. Samuel says be was born at Carlisle in 1759. This line is in Chapt. X of Kathryn Jones's Crockett Cousins (1984). Bible records have been printed by French & Armstrong and others. No links to other Crocketts have been found.
* Another CCPA Crockett is Thomas, married to Esther Johnson, dau. of Alexander Johnson, by the Rev Robert Davidson, Carlisle First Presbyterian, 16 Nov 1797. About 1809 moved to Conneaut Twp, Crawford Co, PA. A history says he was "an Irishman". Sons
William (1811), Thomas B. (1820). 1800 census West Pennsboro Twp. Not ikely connect to other Crocketts.
* A puzzle is that a dozen or so miles down Yellow Breeches Creek, nearer the Susquehanna River, across the York Co line, formerly Newberry Twp, one William Crocket was taxed in 1765 (50 acres), 1768, and 1772 (surviving lists). He bought 20 March 1772 from James Nailor a 527-acres surveyed tract called "Nailery", and paid for the patent acres in March 1787 (Patent Book P-8, 367), but is not there on 1790 census.
* Here is something about Crocketts who did pass through PA. Joseph Crocket served on jury in Lancs. Co in August 1732. In 1734, Joseph Crockett, James Montgomery, and others were selected to lay out course of road in southernmost part of county to connect with Chester Co.
In 1736 the court recorded "recognizances" having to do with charges of assault:  
Joseph Crocket, Robert Crocket, James Montgomery, and Robert Montgomery were on one side (having as witnesses Joseph Long, Joseph Robison, Samuel Crocket, James McKurtle, and William Montgomery), while Alexander Moor and Robert Craig (witnesses James Tosh,  William Craig, and James Crawford) were on the other. In 1737, Joseph and Robert  served on jury together along with James Montgomery.
Early in 1738, Joseph and Samuel served on jury together. Later that year Samuel and Joseph got a small tract of land in what is now Harford Co, MD, south of PA line. Samuel had married Esther, dau. of Rev. John Thompson, minister at  Chestnut Level from 1732 in southern Lancs. Co. Samuel and Esther (parents of  Samuel b 11 Feb 1739 and Jean b 24 Feb 1741) and Joseph and Jean (parents of  Mary b 2 March 1739 and Samuel 9 March 1740) are found in St George's Parish,  once part of Baltimore Co, MD, now northern Harford Co. (So Samuel's son Samuel would not have been born in Pr. Edw. Co VA in 1735 as has been written.) Samuel and Joseph witnessed LWT of William Smith of Baltimore Co, MD, dt 18 March 1746, pr June 11, and Joseph was named guardian  of the Smith children along with one Alexander Hill.
On 10 Sept 1746, Samuel and Joseph were securities for Johanna Smith of Balt. Co, MD and Thomas Smith of Lancs. Co, executors. (Was Johanna a  Crockett?) Samuel and Joseph sold their property to three iron masters. Then  they moved to what is now Wythe Co, VA, joining others (Calhoun, Noble,  Wilshire, Montgomery) who had come from PA. Years later Joseph's son Hugh  referred to Lancs. Co PA and some Robinson neighbors there. Robert arrived at  Philadelphia in summer 1730; later he moved a few miles SW of Staunton, VA by  1740.* If there is more interest in PA, let me know. - Don Maring

RE: William Crockett of Greenwood Twp, Cumberland Co, PA (now Perry Co) and his family of Robertson Co, TN and beyond
Kathryn E. Jones, Crockett Cousins, Chapter X, Robertson County, Tennessee Crocketts, begins with these Crocketts in Cumberland Co, PA. William and Margaret Crocket are believed to have been parents of Samuel, James, John, and William. Possibly there were daughters, but no names have been learned. James died in PA.
Samuel, John, and William moved to Robertson Co, TN.  
Samuel (or someone in his family) wrote dates in a family Bible.
William [born perhaps ca 1730] and Margaret Crockett [July 1734, Ireland] can be found in Greenwood Twp, Cumberland Co, PA which was formed 1767. Greenwood has been divided into several townships and boroughs over time. Most of it went to Perry Co, formed 1820 from the northern part of Cumberland, though some went to neighboring Juniata Co. Wildcat Ridge runs several miles east-west through present-day Greenwood Twp. On its south is Perry Valley, formerly called Wildcat Valley, bounded on the south by Buffalo Mountain. Several branches of Wildcat Run are in the southwestern corner of the twp, east of the Juniata River. William paid for a warrant in 1771 and had the land surveyed in 1773. From 1773 to 1789, he was responsible for taxes on 100 acres, of which he only cleared 10 to 30 at any time. He had one or two horses and the same number of cattle, and some lists show a few sheep. There is a gap in the tax records until 1793.  
William was enumerated on the 1790 census. Apparently two of the sons (probably James and William Jr) lived at home as there were three males 16+. On 4 July 1792, Cumberland Co issued letters of administration on William Crockett to James Crocket and Samuel Utter. As administrators, they had the land patented in trust for the heirs of William Crockett. James Crocket was responsible for taxes in 1793, in which year William was taxed as a freeman (21 and single). In 1795, Margaret was taxed on 270 acres. The 1799 tax and 1800 census have no Crocketts in that region.Chronology:

Sons: Robert, Nathaniel Jr, Samuel, James (deceased). Wiseman, C. M. L. Pioneer Period and Pioneer People of Fairfield County, Ohio (1961) says that in Scotland one Nathaniel Wilson [ca 1660--1753] was a "Cameronian" Presbyterian and on the losing side at the Battle of Bothwell Bridge in 1679. He came to America where he died in 1753. His son Nathaniel -- Sarah's father -- moved in 1798 from Cumberland Co, PA, to Fairfield Co, OH, where he settled about three miles west of Lincoln. He was father of Nathaniel, William, Robert [1774--1844], James [d 1807], and Samuel. One daughter married a Mr. Larimer. "Another married a Mr. Crocket of Tennessee," (Page286)
* 1841, Apr 21: Samuel died at Robertson Co, TN.
* 1842, Feb 16: William Jr died at Robertson Co, TN
* 1856: John died at Humphreys Co, TN
Puzzles: Why does Margaret's date of birth appear in the "Samuel Crockett Bible" but not her date of death? Why is William Senior not mentioned at all? A descendant once claimed to know that Samuel acquired the Bible at Carlisle in 1805 on a trip back East. (Whom was he visiting? His in-laws had moved to Ohio by then.) Is there a lot of damage? Are the entries all in one handwriting as though inscribed at the same time to "catch up", or does the handwriting change? Samuel's death date appears; did Sarah do the writing?
One big question: Were these folks related to the Crocket family southeast of Carlisle on Yellow breeches Creek near present-day Boiling Springs, PA? There is nothing found so far to link them.--

He was father of Nathaniel, William, Robert [1774--1844], James [d 1807], and Samuel. One daughter married a Mr. Larimer. "Another married a Mr. Crocket of Tennessee," (Page286)
* 1841, Apr 21: Samuel died at Robertson Co, TN.
* 1842, Feb 16: William Jr died at Robertson Co, TN
* 1856: John died at Humphreys Co, TN
Puzzles: Why does Margaret's date of birth appear in the "Samuel Crockett Bible" but not her date of death? Why is William Senior not mentioned at all? A descendant once claimed to know that Samuel acquired the Bible at Carlisle in 1805 on a trip back East. (Whom was he visiting? His in-laws had moved to Ohio by then.) Is there a lot of damage? Are the entries all in one handwriting as though inscribed at the same time retrospectively, or does the handwriting change? Samuel's death date appears; did Sarah do the writing?
A big question: Were these folks related to the Crocket family southeast of Carlisle on Yellow breeches Creek near present-day Boiling Springs, PA? There is nothing found so far to link them.--

Sharon, Keith, and whoever may have been following recent postings re:
Crocketts of Obion Co, TN. (I have learned that the accent is on the second syllable, o-BY-un.)
The possibility for confusion in Obion Co, TN is even greater than you know because there are so many deeds which refer to other Crocketts. One branch of Crocketts, beginning in Cumberland Co, PA with William Crocket and Margaret[b 1734, Ire], included Samuel, James, John, and William. Actually, they were in what became known as Perry Co, PA. James died there in 1795.
Samuel, John, and William moved to Robertson Co, TN. In 1795,
Margaret Crocket was responsible for taxes. That is the last reference to them I've found in PA. Samuel's family Bible records have been published more than once. He died in Robertson Co, Tn in 1847. William died there in 1852. John died in Humphreys Co in 1856.

For whatever reason, probably investment, Samuel acquired land in what would become Obion Co, TN as early as 1812. Later his sons Samuel and Nathaniel bought land there. They don't seem to have lived there. John, Samuel's brother, had a son John M. Crockett, born in Humphreys Co, TN 1810 who did mover there and died in Obion Co, TN 1878. He was married several times. His second wife in 1843 was Grace Crockett, died 1845, buried at Troy, TN, where tombstone says "daughter of Isaac Crockett of York Co, SC". (I could explain why it says York not Lancaster but that's too long a story.) So here we have two distinct Crockett families meeting in Tennessee. As Gracey was buried with an infant, it is supposed that she died in childbirth and there are no descendants of this union. She was probably born ca 1821.

Subject: Isaac Crockett of Lancaster Co, SC (Part 2)

Part II: Crocketts of Lancaster County, SC

Isaac CROCKETT died in Lancaster Co, SC in 1831. Grace, his widow, died in 1837. Both made wills, but Grace's was mistakenly carried to Tennessee when the friend with whom it was left moved.
As it was unknown in SC, John P. CROCKETT petitioned the Court of Equity in 1839 for distribution. He became administrator of her estate but in time his letters of administration were revoked.
Isaac made John P. CROCKETT executor along with Gracey CROCKETT. Although Lancaster Co wills were burned by Sherman's soldiers, Isaac's had at least been abstracted into Court of Equity records. He left a wife and ten children not individually named in the will. The whole estate was left in Gracey's hands for her to maintain and educate the children until the youngest came of age 21 or married, directing her to advance to each child as they came of age or married property equal to two of his children who had already received advances from him. When all were of age or married, he directed, then his whole estate was to be equally divided amongst his children except that the one-third part which he devised absolutely to Grace. But Grace died before all had reached 21 or married, leaving Isaac's estate not fully distributed, and then there was a mixup over her will and a lot of arithmetic for the equity commissioner to do. She left to John P. Crockett the 1/3 which was her's from Isaac's will, though at first no one knew this. Isaac petitioned the court in 1839 for that sum. The will does not say which two had received advances, but elsewhere it says Archibald and Mrs Garrison (Jane M.). The estate of Isaac Crockett was valued at $6,619.78.
Guardian Reports were required annually in Lancaster Co, SC.
Every July the Commissioner listed which reports had been filed and which had not. John P. Crockett filed in 1841 as guardian of Elijah B. Crockett. Again in 1842. The July 1843 annual report: "The court further reports that John P Crockett Guardian of Elijah B Crockett, since the making & filing his return, has removed to the State of Tennessee taking his ward with him. The Estate of the ward the Comr. understands has been left with his securities to the Guardianship Bond & the Securities the Comr.regards abundantly solvent."
In 1844 he failed to make a return from Tennessee and the securities were to be informed. The July 1845 reports says that the securities have made the return. "They are very responsible gentlemen, & the Estate of the ward is well secured in their possession."
The July 1847 annual report says that "the ward after arriving of age . . . has been settled with on full" on April 5, 1847, by M. C. Heath and Thomas K. Cureton. Elijah B. Crockett lived 03/06/1826--02/02/1869 so this was around his 21stbirthday.
As for Isaac Crockett's property which was sold, 290 acres on Twelve Mile Creek, adjoining lands of J. P. Crockett, Jno R. Wright, and others, was bid off by Marcus E. Tuttle who assigned the bid to Allen Morrow. It brought just over $5.14 per acre.
It was auctioned at Bellair, a post-office village in the Lancaster Co, SC, panhandle, near Six Mile Creek. Adjoining land went to John P. Crockett as an inheritance through his mother, Gracy. There were several slaves sold: to John P. Crockett with Allen Morrow and James W. White on his bond, James McCulloch with James Robinson and Drury Morrow on the bond, Darling J. Childers with Lewis Gill and Leroy Secrest on his bond, and Richard Cousar with Simon Beckham on his bond. Also sold were one old bureau for $7.75 to James Robinson and bedstead and bedding to B. F.Davidson for $19.75.
A plat of Isaac's land was included showing 491 acres on Twelve Mile Creek adjoining William Delaney, Allen Morrow, James Gordon, James R. Rodgers, John R. Wright and others. A mill branch of Twelve Mile Creek and a mill appear on the plat. Six Mile Creek is also shown. Moses C. Heath and Allen Morrow were guardians of Harvey,  Gracey, and Elijah as of 1839. In July 1840, John P. Crockett became guardian of Elijah B. Crockett, having Thomas K. Cureton and Moses C. Heath on his bond.
(Allen MORROW's first wife Agnes Houston POTTS [1812--1833] was a daughter of William and Levica (CROCKETT) POTTS. I know of no CROCKETT connection for Moses Chappell HEATH other than that he married Allen Morrow's sister Mary. The Six Mile Presbyterian church was built on land donated by Allen Morrow, but that was some years before he purchased the Crockett land.)
The 10 children were as follows:
Archibald
Jane M, wife of Benjamin GARRISON Robert W
Caroline, wife of Dudley G REEVES
Louisa or Lavisa, wife of James ROBINSON
William
John P
Isaac Harvey
Gracey
Elijah B

In Lancaster Co, SC, in 1841 William Crockett was paid $150. In 1842, James Robinson collected $193.30 1/2 in right of his wife and the same for each as agent for Archibald Crockett, Isaac H. Crockett, and B. Garrison & wife. In 1844, William Potts collected as attorney for Archibald Crockett, B. Garrison and wife Jane, while Jno L. Robinson acted on behalf of James Robinson and wife Louisa (or Levica?). In 1846, William Potts acted as attorney to collect for Robert W. Crockett. In 1846 H. R. Price collected as administrator of Gracy Crockett's estate. The guardianship files (loose papers) of Lancaster County, SC, include mostly the material copied into guardianship books, but there is little more. There is a receipt signed by Elijah.
An heir whose name looks like "Louisa" in the book looks more like "Lavisa" in this copy. Perhaps she was a "Levica", a name not uncommon at the time, which became "Levicy" as a nickname.
Isaac may have had a sister of that name who married William Potts as his first wife.
There is a letter dated 16 Dec 1847 written in Obion ("Obine") Co, TN, by John P. and Phebe M. Crockett. The envelope is addressed to Frederick Ezzell of Belair, Lancaster County (a former post office in the panhandle, near Six Mile Creek). This was Phebe's family.
It begins:
"Farther brothers & sisters and frends onst more take my pen to hand to write you a few lines we are all well an has been well all this seson and hope that these few lines may find you all enjoying the same."
It is extremely difficult to read, mostly because of the ink bleeding through the paper. Under magnification, however, I have picked out phrases which indicate that the letter is about how well the crops have been, matters of health, and such. It got into the guardianship file because John P. Crockett disagreed with James Witherspoon's about who should be paid how much of the commission for the guardianship of Elijah B. Crockett. He asked the Ezells to show the letter to Witherspoon and they must have left it with him.
(These papers are now at the SC Archives.) The name Thomas J. Ezzell appears in this section of the letter.
John says, as far as I can make out,
"I went down to see charles legits and took all of my family an stade too weekes and found them all well and the friends well we was at charlott houston old Ester houston James and Jorge Bonds James dunes Jane morrison Eleck and John houston Ruben wethers Dred gayes I saw a letter from Jane ivy and from sikiel houston that give us ...from that contry".

I believe the names here are Leggitt, Houston, Bonds, Dunn, Morrison, Weathers, Ivey, and Gay.
There was one Charles S. LEGETT who married Mary "EZEL" in Mecklenburg Co, NC 6 March 1828 (source: the LDS/IGI). She may have been kin to Phebe, perhaps an aunt. However the 1850 census of Obion Co, TN shows one Charles Liggit 44 NC with wife whose name looks like Hixey 38 TN, and oldest child Minnerva born ca 1832 in TN. For now, it is not clear whom John and familyvisited.
It says that
"ther has been no deth amonst us som marriges Wm B robertson to malinda crockett A Cs dauter Jacky Brown to agnes reeves".
Elsewhere:
"our yongest we call her malinda crockett for A C daugter".
I believe "A C" referred to Archibald Crockett, John's older brother who had married Eleanor Weathers.

At #1049 was one William ROBERTSON (27, SC) with wife Malinda (23, SC) and son William (1, TN). The following household was Mary ROBERTSON (55, NC), Benjamin (25, SC), and Samuel (23, SC). Then came James ROBERTSON (36, NC), no wife, but several children, including one named Archibald. I cannot prove that William and Malinda were the couple named in John's letter, but I copied it in case.
Back in Union Co, NC (formed from Mecklenburg Co), Frederick IZZELL (45, NC) and Rebecca (45) were at dwelling #457. Next was Thomas J. IZZELL (25, NC) at #458, who is mentioned (with "Ezzell" spelling) in the John P. CROCKETT letter.
The EZELLs had as neighbors two aunts and an uncle of John Potts CROCKETT. At #452 was James ROBINSON (73, NC) with Margaret W. (65, NC). This was Grace (POTTS) CROCKETT's sister "Peggy" who married on 03/14/1803, James ROBINSON. At #456 was Wm POTTS (63, NC); he lived 09/10/1788--01/22/1856 and married 1st Levica CROCKETT (ca 1787--02/08/1827); both were buried at Providence Church (NC). William was a brother of Grace (POTTS) CROCKETT. At #460, Susan STITT (64). This would be Grace (POTTS) CROCKETT's sister Susan POTTS who married a STITT.
Did you know that Archibald Crockett, the oldest son of Isaac and Grace, was sheriff in Obion Co, TN and was hanged by outlaws inOct 1865?

Barb Peddicord,
No. The Rev Archie Crockett, 1792--1881, Mecklenburg Co, NC, and his wife Esther (Davis) moved first to northwestern Alabama (1830 census) and later when northeastern MS opened up they moved there. Eventually they settled in Chickasaw Co and are buried at the Prospect Methodist Church cemetery.
Also in northeastern MS was the family of John King Crockett and his wife Rachel (Gillespie) from Lancaster Co, SC area. John King is said to have been a son of Eli and Ann (Morrow) Crockett. One son was named Archibald Scott Crockett.
.........a fair amount has been done on these two branches of Crocketts. One unrelated William Cowan Crockett with roots in Jackson Co, GA and Coffee Co, TN who moved to Prentiss Co, MS.

Just yesterday I got a letter from a gentleman in Corinth who tells me that The Rev Samuel Agnew, an early minister of the Bethany Presbyterian church in Lee Co kept a diary which has been preserved, and a copy has been placed at the library in Tupelo. One of John K. Crockett's sons, Eli, belonged to Bethany. Agnew also wrote a church history with genealogical details of families. I know this is quite a way from your geographical area of research, but I thought I'd mention it in case you know someone else in MS who might be interested.

As for other counties, Kathryn Jones's Crockett Cousins mentions one Nathaniel Crockett who moved from Tennessee and was of Neshoba County when he sold Marshall Co land in 1838. His brother Samuel who was on the 1870 census of Marshall Co with wife Mary Ann. But these were sons of Samuel Crockett [1759--1841] of Cumberland Co, PA and Robertson Co, TN.
That's all I can write now. Questions are always welcome, though I am not organized enough to answer them all immediately.

Sharon,
I'm sure you are on the right track. Isaac Crockett signed the Mecklenburg Co, NC marriage bond on 12 Nov 1797 for Jennet Crockett and John Parks. She was very likely one of Robert Crockett's descendants,although, as has been said, who were from Robert and who from Archibald is a mess beyond sorting out.

French and Armstrong, page 430, included a letter from Mrs Edgar C Robertson of Mariana AR who claimed descent from John and Jane (Crockett) Park of NC. Son Isaac (born 25 Nov 1804) married Matilda Mooney. "They moved to Tenn., and died in Obion Co." Isaac had a brother Moses and named a son Moses.
We can only speculate that Isaac Park was named for Isaac Crockett. For what it's worth, Isaac Crockett's wife Gracey (Potts) had a niece Mary McCullogh (ca 1813--05/30/1838) who married James Parks.

All best,

I too am looking for the parents of my gre-gr-grandmother, ELNORA Malissa Crockett. She was born 28 Jan 1853 in Humphreys Co., TN, daughter of John Crockett and Rebecca Jane Bailey. At least I'm hoping that's the family into which she fits. They were in Humphreys Co., TN at the 1850 census (before Elnora's birth) with children William "Henry" Crockett b. 1846 and Emily J. b. abt. 1849. Rebecca Jane Bailey Crockett apparently had been married before as her ten-year-old son, Olivery Myrick was also living with them. They were in Jersey Co., IL at the 1860 Census-- Elnora married in New Madrid Co., MO in 1869, but her parents moved to Lincoln Co., MO and were there at the 1870 census on until their deaths. There have been several other women in this line named ELNORA in honor of Elnora Malissa.  
It's my belief that Elnora's father(?) descends from the Crocketts who were first found in Cumberland Co., PA and then Robertson/Williamson Counties, TN before they arrived in Humphreys Co. Any information would be much appreciated.

Lisa and David,
This reply is in reference to possible ancestors of SAMUEL THOMPSON CROCKETT.

SAMUEL CROCKETT I, son of JAMES CROCKETT and MARTHA MONTGOMERY of Ireland emigrated to America c1715 at age 21. He m ESTHER THOMPSON CROCKETT c1733. Their first child was b 1735 in Prince Edward Co., VA and then they moved to present-day Wythe Co., VA. They had 8 children b 1735-1749: SAMUEL II, ANN AGNES, JOHN, JANE, CATHERINE, ROBERT, ANDREW I, and JAMES.

Son ANDREW CROCKETT I m SARAH ELLIOTT and they moved to Davidson Co., TN (now Williamson Co. - not Williams) in 1799. Their children included SARAH, MARY, JAMES, SAMUEL III, JOHN HAMILTON, NANCY BAKER, ANDREW II, and ROBERT.

SAMUEL CROCKETT III, b 11-1-1772, m JOANNAH SAYERS, b 11-20-1772, and they had 11 children: ANDREW III, JOHN SAYERS, ROBERT, SAMUEL IV, SALLY ELLIOTT (m JOHN RAMSEY BAIN - my 2-great grandfather), LUCINDA JOANNAH, LOUISA, ESTHER THOMPSON, NANCY HAMILTON, MARY SAYERS, and DAVID.

ANDREW CROCKETT III, b 11-13-1798, m CATHERINE WALKER BELL 4-2-1818 (CATHERINE b 2-21-1798 in Davidson Co., d 2-14-1890 in Williamson Co.).  
Their second child was SAMUEL b 11-17-1821 but reported to have d 2-9-1822.
Could this have been your SAMUEL THOMPSON CROCKETT?

This information was obtained from "Vol V of Notable Southern Families -
The Crockett Family and Connecting Lines" by Janie Preston Collup French and Zella Armstrong (1928). The book has many mis-printed and incorrect dates (For example, on page 86 alone on the descendants of SAMUEL MC CUTCHEON BAIN there are 10 erroneous dates).

Hi Jack,
I have been led to believe that Samuel (Sr) was a son of James Crockett, who himself was married to Martha Montgomery and was the son of Antoine.  
I don't have any proof of this or the connection to the Steeles. The Steele connection sounds good because this Samuel Crockett Jr was born in Prince Edward County, Virginia 1735. I don't have a marriage date, but this Jane Steele was born in 1737.

Regards,
Rodger

Subject: [PACUMBER-L] land grant survey
Hello:
On a recent visit to the cumberland county historical society i was able to look through a collection of maps drafted in the 1950's-60's by a Dr. John Miller. I was looking for a way to locate the present- day boundaries of the land my ancestor was granted in the mid- eighteenth century; the land grants refer only to trees and rocks.
I located a map drawn by Dr. Miller that does exactly what i hoped for; it shows all the original land grant surveys overlaid on a modern map. The map that i copied depicts the area between Carlisle and Mechanicsburg...the northern boundry is about halfway between trindle road and rt 11...the southern boundry is the yellow breeches.
I realize this is a small fraction of cumberland county, but just in case this could help anyone else here is the list of grantees...
