About Colonel Robert Patton Crockett

Find-a-Grave Memorial #8393919


Birth: Sep. 8, 1816 Franklin County Tennessee, USA Death: Sep. 23, 1889 Hood County Texas, USA

Robert's father, David (Davy) Crockett was married to Miss Elizabeth Patton in Franklin county, Tennessee, about the year 1815. Their first child, Robert Patton Crockett, was born September 8, 1816. Elizabeth Crockett came to Texas in 1854 with her son, Robert Patton Crockett, from Gibson county, Tennessee. They located on the David Crockett head right, a league of land patented to Elizabeth Crockett bv the Republic of Texas as the surviving widow of David Crockett, which was situated between Rucker and Long Creeks in Johnson (now Hood) county. She lived with her son, Robert Patton Crockett, in his rude log cabin in Johnson county until 1860, when death claimed her. She was buried in the Acton cemetery on Walnut Creek, some five miles south of their home, and about six miles east of Granbury, and now a mound and stone slab mark her resting place. Note: This excerpt was written in 1911. Immediately after the fall of the Alamo in 1836 and the death of his father, David Crockett, Robert Patton Crockett left his home, came to Texas and joined the revolution, remaining in the service until the Independence of Texas had been secured. He returned to Tennessee in 1841, where he was married. In 1854, he moved his family to Texas, bringing his mother with him. Robert Patton Crockett died in Hood county, September 23, 1889, aged 73 years and eight days. He was also buried in the same lot of land in the Acton cemetery.
