Crockett Historical Markers

Just a note to let you know the Crockett Historical Markers will go in Monday starting with the Walkertown location adjacent to the Walkertown Church on Hwy 93 near Babbs Mill Road at 1PM. After our photo opts we will go to Still Hollow Farm for the second Crockett marker placement near the Crockett Mill Location. We will formally dedicate these July 16 & 17, 2020 during the reunion of the Direct Descendant’s and Kin of David Crockett. However we do need photos for the Greeneville Sun the SAR, and Crockett Newsletter. These markers would not have been possible without the dedicated work of Joe Swann and the support of the Descendants of the Battle of Kings Mountain, Sons of the American Revolution, Fort Watauga Children of the American Revolution, The Direct Descendants and Kin of David Crockett and the many Friends of Davy Crockett who for years worked tirelessly at the Birthplace state park. Wayne Conduff worked to identify and plat the layout of the Crockett property and the Walkertown marker will be on what was Crockett property. David McKay and the Walkertown Church have graciously allowed us to place the marker near their parking area so visitors would have a safe place to park to read and photograph the sign. This is truly a community project and one to be proud of. Thank you to all, Tim Massey
