It has been a while since I posted any grave pictures for our astounding past. A few weeks ago I was on the corner of Wilson Pike Road and Crockett. This is the cemetery for some of the Crockett Family and Owen Family that moved to this area at the beginning of the nineteenth century.

If you remember, Charles Lynch and Robert Adams were seriously involved in running and guarding the lead mines in Wythe County, Virginia during the Revolution. Wythe County was Montgomery County until 1790. So it is totally possible that the Crockett family may have known the Ward family and Adams family.
