This genealogical history of American Crockett families features (1) descendants of Samuel Crockett, who emigrated from Ireland to America about 1715, and utlimately settled in Wythe County, Virginia, and his wife, Elizabeth Montgomer. (2) Descendants of Joseph Louis Crockett, who was born in Ireland in 1676, emigrated to New Rochelle, New York about 1708, and removed from there to Virginia about 1713. Descendants of this line includ the famous "hero of the Alamo." (3) Robert Watkins Crockett, who emigrated from Ireland to Virginia about 1740. (4) New England Crocketts. And (5) "Other" Crocketts, including Crocketts from Georgia, Tangier Island Crocketts, Tazewell Crocketts, Crocketts of Bogi Castle, Ireland, James and Robert Crockett of Ireland, and Scottish Crocketts.

The Digital Edition: Complete with two text files (2.1 Mb) and thiry-one images (5 Mb).
Enhancements: Though chock full of useful information, the volume, as originally published in 1928, sorely needed a competent editor. The editor of the Digital Edition has met some this need by supplying a table of contents with hyperlinks, by alphabetizing the index, and by supplying lingeage-tracking hyperlinks that both override the compilers' incoherent numbering system and show most of the many intra-familial alliances. The Digital Edition additionally features high resolution images in separate files, with hyperlinks from the text file.
