Davy Crockett had several first cousins named David Crockett after his grandfather. When he lived in Gibson Co., Tennessee, two other David Crocketts lived within 12 miles of him: David Crockett of Rutherford Co. and David B. Crockett, son of Davy’s uncle Robert. Davy’s father, John, and his uncles fought in the Revolutionary war in the Battle of Green Mountain. Goodspeed’s History of Tennessee (1887) lists a “Robert Puckett” settling near Lynn Point, Gibson County, in the 1820s.
