Notes for DAVID CROCKETT: David Crockett was fifth of nine children and the fifth son born to John and Rebecca (Hawkins) Crockett. The Crocketts were a self-sufficient, independent family. The elder David Crockett, Davy's grandfather, left the settled lands of North Carolina and crossed the mountains into present-day East Tennessee in search of fresh territory to settle. In 1777 Davy's grandfather and grandmother were two of a dozen or so settlers living near present-day Rogersville who were massacred by Creeks and Cherokees. Their deaths were the first of several family tragedies experienced by the Crocketts. Davy's parents, John and Rebecca, settled in what is now Greene County in sturdy log home built at the confluences of Limestone Creek and the Nolichucky River. Here, on August 17, 1786, Davy Crockett was born. On August 14, 1806, just before his twentieth birthday, Davy married Mary "Polly" Finley in Jefferson County. They lived for the next few years in a small cabin near the Crockett family, where their two sons, John Wesley and William, were born.
