In the not too distant past, researchers at one time thought that the WIlliam Crockett that married Rebecca Elliott and the William Crockett that married Nancy Asher McNary Moss were the same man. However, much new data has come to light since this theory. William Crockett who married Nancy Asher McNary Moss is my direct ancestor. He was the son of William Crockett and Catherine Hawkins Crockett. William Crockett, Sr. was the uncle of Davy Crockett of Alamo fame. The other William Crockett was the son of John Crockett, the father of Davy Crockett of Alamo fame and the first cousin of the William Crockett who married Nancy. I think over the years researchers were confused due to these two Crockett brothers, William and John, marrying two Hawkins women, Rebecca and Catherine. These two families also had sons named William, David, and John. It is no wonder researchers get confused trying to figure out what line belongs to what father.I feel that Rebecca and Catherine were very likely first cousins and there is evidence to support this theory now. So I am actually a double cousin to Davy Crockett.
