FEBRUARY NEWSLETTER POSTED!!
Thanks to Tim Massey for our February newsletter! Tim and I did not gee/haw very well in our fall vacation plans, so the posting of the August and November newsletters was kind of off schedule. They can still be viewed, however, by clicking on the Newsletter Archives link at right.
NEW PAINTING BY DOUGLAS MOSES
(Temporarily removed - will return when "spiders" have reindexed the page again.) This giclee fine art painting of the Crockett Tavern by Douglas Moses was created from photos that Doug took of re-enactors at the tavern. A beautiful representation of every day life at the tavern in colonial times.

For genealogy issues
Among the items in the Crockett Store is "Crockett Cousins." This genealogy has been reprinted and copies are available for delivery. This is the most complete genealogy of the Crockett Family from David's grandparents to present day. The 200+ page book should be in anyone's library if they are researching the Crockett Family tree.
