CROCKETTS of SOUTH CAROLINA & VIRGINIA
CROCKETT FAMILIES


A genealogist dream cemetery is this cemetery in Lancaster, South Caroline. We do have ancestors buried here and oh the history that lies in this cemetery is awesome. From Andrew Jackson Sr and the folks who made their way down the great wagon road. I find myself researching the CROCKETT family since they do connect to the GRAHAMS who settled in NC/SC and made their way to WYTHEVILLE, VA. I have read copies of historian Nancy Crockett's works and I see a connection to these folks who were all living in Lancaster, South Carolina ; Jennet Robinson McCulloch Crockett is the 4th Great Grand Aunt of Janelle Morrow Walker, bet there are other connections as well ; Historian Nancy Crockett is the 2nd great grand niece of husband (Robert Crockett) of 4th great grand aunt

It seems only fitting to DEDICATE this page to Historian NANCY LOUISE CROCKETT. Yes we have found the connection of her Crockett family to my family traced back to Isaac McCulloch


Waxhaw Presbyterian Church and Cemetery

Tombstone inscriptions of the David Morrow and Andrew Crockett Family in the old Waxhaw Church - Yard as composed by Worth S. Ray with amendments by me Janelle Morrow as I got from the tombstones

  • Nancy L. Crockett second daughter of John M. and Levicey C. Crockett died January 9, 1843 aged 16 months
  • These are the members of the family of the famous DAVID CROCKETT who served in the U.S. Congress from Tennessee and died in the ALAMO in Texas in 1836. Did the name of DAVID came down from DAVID MORROW, the ancient Patriarch buried in the WAXHAW CHURCHYARD as thought by Worth Ray

    When I Janelle Morrow visited Waxhaw Cemetery in September 2007, I did not find the grave of David Morrow. "In memory of David Morrow who departed this life February the 18 1785 aged 54 years" I did find many of the stones of those mentioned above. After much research I believe David Morrow born 1731 and died February 18, 1785 in Waxhaw, Lancaster, SC & buried at Waxhaw is the Uncle of our David Morrow & great uncle of James McKnight Morrow ; most likely in the family of Daniel Morrow back to Alexander & Grace Smith Morrow

    Here is something about Crocketts who did pass through Pennsylvania: Joseph Crocket served on jury in Lancaster 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
