There is an old but often useful Crockett genealogy done by French and Armstrong in the 1920s as part of a Notable Southern Families series. The following is a by-product of a an efort being made to account for a prominent clergyman and historian named George Louis Crocket who lived primarily in San Augustine Co, TX. He turned out to be the son of George Fulton Crockett whose father and grandfather were mamed George.
What got my attention was the assertions in F&A that, "One of his brothers was governor of the Territory of Arkansas before the state was admitted to the Union." "His" refers to George Crockett born 1772 who married Mary Fulton.
I have a correction to make to that error. Change to read "One of his brothers-in-law". . . .

Let's start with William Savin Fulton.
REFERENCE 1: Arkansas Encyclopedia (selected sentences only) "Arkansas Territory was a historic, organized territory of the United States from July 4, 1819 to June 15, 1836, when it was admitted as Arkansas, the 25th U.S. state." "William Savin Fulton (2 June 1795 - 15 August 1844) was a Democratic member of the United States Senate and Territorial Governor of Arkansas." "At the outbreak of the War of 1812 he enlisted in a company of volunteers at Fort McHenry. He was admitted to the bar in 1817 and practiced law at Gallatin, Tennessee. He was military secretary to General Andrew Jackson during the First Seminole War in 1818. In 1820 he settled in Florence, Alabama and became county judge in 1822." "Served as Secretary of Arkansas Territory from 1829 to 1835. Was appointed Governor of Arkansas Territory and served from 1835 to 1836 when Arkansas was admitted to the Union. Served as United States Senator from 1836 until his death in 1844." "William Savin Fulton died in Little Rock, Arkansas. He is buried at the historic Mount Holly Cemetery in Little Rock." "Fulton County, Arkansas is named for William Savin Fulton."
REFERENCE 2. Biographical and Pictorial History Of Arkansas, Vol 1, Chapter 8 "Mrs Elizabeth R Wright". Daughter of William Savin Fulton. David Fulton, from Ireland in his youth to Maryland. William Savin Fulton married Matilda Frances Nowland, of English descent, Eastern shore MD. In 1815 William Crockett merchant of Gallatin TN m: Mary, eldest daughter of David Fulton. Eliza m: Dr Elmore Douglass, Rebecca m: Alfred Douglass. Governor William Savin Fulton, son of David Fulton, to Gallatin in Nov 1815.
I am suggesting that that William Savin Fulton was the brother of Mary Ann Fulton who married George Crockett. Hence it was George's brother-in-law who was the Territorial governor.
Obviously it was George, not his brother William, who married Mary Ann, eldest daughter of David Fulton, born 4 Jan 1797 in MD. Why did she died in Canton, Madison Co, MS as is stated? George died in TN in 1847.
Immigrant George Crockett taught is said to have taught math at William and Mary. Later married Mary Ann Fulton in April 1815 in MD and moved to Gallatin, Sumner Co, TN. Prominent citizen. Named a son George Fulton Crocket (who was the father of the clergyman of San Augustine Co TX). George and Mary (Fulton) Crockett also had sons William Henry Crockett b 1833 TN) and David. And several daughters.
George Crocket and L Fulton together witnessed the LW&T of James Trousdale (2 Sept 1818, proved and recorded Feb 1819), in Sumner Co, TN.
Just a little, but I hope someone finds it of interest. And, of course, if this is in any way needful of correction, that too is welcome.
