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

News from Rutherford

CROCKETT CABIN IN RUTHERFORD—Chapters in my district of Daughters of the American Revolution make annual donations to the cabin. Reelfoot DAR is the most active and in touch with the Cabin

I got permission to print this paragraph from a meeting report in the local paper. “Thank you Linda Lofton!“

Ms Lofton gave the TSDAR Historical site report about the David Crockett Cabin and Museum in Rutherford. It is a full-size replica of the Crockett family cabin restored with timbers from his mother’s cabin. All but a few of the logs from the original cabin were destroyed by fire before the cabin could be reconstructed on the site in Rutherford near the high school. If anyone is interested in visiting the cabin museum, they should contact Mayor Sandy Simmons at 731-655-7166 at Rutherford City Hall.
