About Nathan Crockett

Nathan was named after his paternal grandfather, Nathan Hawkins.

There seem to be a couple of Nathan Crocketts under consideration:

Nathan Crockett (USDAR National Records 317473 & 524558) was "one of the first blacksmiths and skilled mechanics in the northern part of TN. his versatility having been so great, that his services as a mechanic were in great demand. All of his five children were reared in Robertson County, TN."

Father: John CROCKETT b: 1754 in Clark Co., Va Mother: Rebecca HAWKINS b: 1756 in Baltimore Co., MD

Marriage 1 Margaret UNKNOWN b: Abt 1780 in VA Married: 1808 in TN Children: John CROCKETT b: 1805 in Limestone, Washington Co., TN Samuel CROCKETT b: 1799 Martin CROCKETT b: 1801 William CROCKETT b: 1803 Louisa CROCKETT b: 1807

This is a different Nathan Crockett, probably not our immediate line, and hence has caused some confusion, but might be related since names carried long down the generations. This is from another researcher: "Some of Nathan and Margaret's children stated in census records that they were born in Alabama. Even the children of Nathan and Margaret's children stated in census that their parents were born in Alabama. This is the census for Nathan CROCKETT in Jackson Co., Alabama in 1830.

CROCKETT, Nathan 2 males under 5 2 males 5 - 10 1 male 15 - 20 2 males 20 - 30 1 male 40 - 50 1 female under 5 1 female 5 - 10 3 females 10 - 15 1 female 15 - 20 1 female 40 - 50 [Margaret?]

"From the above census it would seem that there were 6 daughters and 7 sons in the household. The only names I have of the possible children are John, Sampson, Nathan, and Louisa. I believe another child may have been Mary CROCKETT (called Polly), b. bet. 1811 and 1815. She was the first wife of my g grandfather, John SIMMONS. In the 1840 Weakley Co. TN Census, a Margaret CROCKETT (head of household) and family lived very near John and Mary CROCKETT SIMMONS.

1840 Weakley Co. TN Census CROCKETT, Margaret 1 white male 20 - 30 1 white female 10 - 15 2 white females 15 - 20 2 white females 20 - 30 1 white female 40 - 50

I believe that Nathan must have died before 1840 as I can't find him after that date. There is said to be a Hickman Co. TN marriage record for Mrs. Margaret CROCKETT c1848 to William BALDRIDGE. There's a possibility that Nathan's widow, Margaret, may have married William BALDRIDGE. Then William BALDRIDGE and wife, Margaret, appeared in the 1850 Weakley Co. Census in Dist. 3.

Next door is a possible son of William BALDRIDGE. BALDRIDGE, C.M. 40 TN Emily 30 TN Almus 15 TN Helen 14 TN Nancy 12 TN Daniel 9 TN Susan 4 TN William 2 TN

On Ancestry ( there is yet another Nathan Crockett, next generation, listed as b.1818, d.1875, married to a Frances (or Francis) Thomas: Name Francis Thomas Event Type Marriage Event Date 24 Sep 1845 Event Place Weakley, Tennessee, United States Gender Female Spouse's Name Nathan Crockett Page 101"

Their children are listed as John A Crockett (1846-1945), Nathaniel (1848-unk), Sarah (1853-unk) Alonzo (1854-unk), Buchanan (1859-unk). This is most likely an unrelated line.
