About Joseph Louis Crockett

Davy Crockett wrote: “The Indians wounded Joseph Crockett, a brother to my father, by a ball, which broke his arm; and took James a prisoner, who was still a younger brother than Joseph, and who, from natural defects, was less able to make his escape, as he was both deaf and dumb. He remained with them for seventeen years and nine months, when he was discovered and recollected by my father and his eldest brother, William Crockett; and was purchased by them from an Indian trader.” (David the Elder Crockett, 1 (c. 1730-1777)— Davy Crockett’s Own Story p. 17.)
