|Birth: ||Jan. 9, 1676|
County Cork, Ireland
"After the death of King Louis XIV of France, in 1715, Joseph left Ireland and revisited France. Such was the hatred against all Protestants and persons who had changed their religion, that Joseph (whose family had become Protestants) gathered up all his friends and family in France and took them to America, where they settled in the French Colony of New Rochelle, in the Colony of New York. At New Rochelle was born William D. Crockett, the first child of American birth to Joseph and Sarah.
The other members of Joseph's extended family, who were still living in Ireland, and who were presumably also Protestants living in the midst of Catholics, soon left Ireland and settled in the Colony of Virginia, in 1716, 1718, and 1719. In 1718, John Crockett, son of Joseph Louis Crockett, Sr, removed from New Rochelle and settled on the Rapidan River, in present-day Madison County, VA, among the families of Fontaine, Maurey, and Guerants - other emigrants of French extraction via Ireland and Scotland".
