I found your posting on the Gleaves site and was most interested in the portrait of Maria Crockett that you mention.How did you come by this portrait?Do you have a digital copy that you can send to me?Also what is your line from James Turk Gleaves?
My line: James Turk Gleaves/Malvina Crockett Samuel Crockett Gleaves/Maria Crockett Charles Wythe Gleaves/Laura Keene Anna Maria Gleaves/John Robert Rich Anna Bob Rich/James V. Sampselle, Jr. then me.
You asked about the Davy Crockett relationship... Samuel Crockett Gleaves was descended from Malvina Crockett/James Turk Gleaves Samuel Crockett/Elizabeth Campbell Taylor John Crockett/Elizabeth Montgomary John Samuel Crockett/Esther Thompson
Maria Crockett was descended from Charles Lewis Crockett/Mary Harrison Bowyer Robert Crockett/Jane Lewis Stuart Samuel Crockett, Jr/Jane Steele John Samuel Crockett/Esther Thompson
So as you can see Maria and Samuel were distant cousins. John Samuel Crockett came to Wythe county and settled. He was the son of Robert Watkins Crockett and Rachel Watkins.They immigrated from Ireland. Robert was the son of Antoine Desaure Perronette deCrocketagne/Louise deSaix.
Davy Crockett's line back John Crockett/Rebekan Hawkins John Crockett/Margaret McClanahan Thomas Stewart Crockett/ ? Joseph Lewis Crockett/Sarah Stuart Antoine Desaure Perronette deCrocketagne/Louise deSaix.
My Robert was the younger brother of Joseph Lewis Crockett so the relation is VERY distant.
