One thing research has taught me is that just because people have adapted someone else's information, it doesn't mean it's correct. I've been sloppy in this regard myself. The 'One World Tree' project is rife with bad data duplicated across thousands of trees.
If there's a headstone or a book documenting the 120-123 (whatever the 29 people have agreed to) years of Sarah Crockett's life, you're probably good. Going off of someone else's tree is probably not solid enough. Given what we know now about medicine and the average lifespan of those centuries ago, it's a safe bet that the data is probably inaccurate.
I have a paf file my brother gave me and in it he has her death date of 1748 in Virginia....
This is in the notes...
"1. "Notable Southern Families-Volume V-The Crockett Family and Connecting Lines" by Janie Preston Collup French and Zella Armstrong. King Printing Company, Bristol, Tennessee; copyright, 1928
2. "The Crockett Family of Mansfield - A history and genealogy" by Valda Olive Crockett Benalla, Victoria, Australia October 1993. Published by Valda Crockett and William Osborne, Canberra, 1993"
I need to find these sources and see what they say. Also maybe I can find a town where she may be buried.
i didnt find a grave marker for her (yet) but i think you might want these to add in http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~walker/crocketts....
Thanks for looking Kathy... keep up the good work.... I will visit with my brother and ask him the source of the paf file he had and where he may have obtained it. 1748 is much more realistic of a date. Joseph Lewis Sr and Sarah had a daughter named Sarah and her death date is unknown. It is realistic that she very well could have died around 1800 as her birthdate was 1722.
I think this could solve alot of the Crockett tree mysteries
I see that is is really getting alot less conflicts
