Welcome Back to Grave Matters

The Courthouse in Wytheville, Virginia.Image via Wikipedia

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.

 Andrew Crockett grave stone and marker   Lt. Andrew Crockett Patriot American Revolution Montgomery County, Virginia Militia, Signer of Cumberland Compact  B. 1745  D. May 28, 1821 Tn

 Sara Sally Elliott Crockett wife of Andrew Crockett  B. 1750 in Va.  Died June 28, 1821 Tn
 Charles Crockett  son of James and Martha Crockett  Born March 12, 1835 Died August 19, 1858
James Crockett Born in Wythe County  December 9, 1790  Died November 17, 1874
Martha Crockett   Born January 15, 1804  No Death Date on Stone

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.
