William Warrick Crockett was born on Feb 16, 1845 in Ralls County, Missouri, the son of Robert and Jennie [Cartmill] Crockett. His middle name was a variation of the family name Warwick - his father's grandmother was Mary Warwick, who married Thomas Cartmill. He married Mary Susan Slavens on September 1, 1865, at Troy, Lincoln County, Missouri. Her father, John Wesley Slavens, a Methodist Minister, performed the marriage cemetery. After their marriage, they lived in Bedford, Lincoln County, Missouri; Linn, Audrain County, Missouri; and Schell City, Vernon County, Missouri. Mary Susan's cousin Lucy [Nevitt] McCubbins and her husband Zachariah had moved out west to Oregon in the 1850s, and then on to Dayton Washington by 1880. They wrote to their family telling them what a wonderful place the west was and that homestead could be taken, so in February of 1887, William and Mary Susan they left Schell City, Missouri on an emigrant train to Dayton, Washington, where Zachariah and Lucy lived. They spent more than two weeks on the train on the trip west, surely a difficult trip with seven children. They took up a homestead and timber culture claim the following spring of 1888 in Wilbur, Washington. The area was dry and treeless, and the crops were poor, and in the early spring of 1897, they sold the farm, taking some cattle as part of the payment. In May of 1897, they started for Idaho, a journey which took about two weeks. William had visited Idaho about the time the Nezperce Indian Reservation had opened up for settlement, and had liked the area. William Crockett drove four horses with a wagon and trailer. His two sons-in-law, Will and Sam Gentry had teams with covered wagons. The women drove a hack, and two of William's children, his son Oren and his daughter Ada Elizabeth "Bessie" rode ponies and helped drive the herd of about 60 cattle. They settled first near Forest and Ferdinand, Idaho, where Josie McCubbins Feehan and another cousin of Mary Susan's, Will Slavens, lived. There was a school house on William Slavens property known as the Slavens School that Oren, Elsie and Dolly attended. The school, which still stands, is now called the Pine Grove School, and is located about three miles east of Forest, Idaho on Morrowtown Road in a grove of trees just off the road to the south. In 1899 the family moved to the area around Orofino, Clearwater [then Shoshone] County, Idaho, first settling on Crockett's Bench, upriver from town, where they farmed. One crop they raised was broadleaf tobacco. In the summer of 1899, they bought three lots on the hill in Orofino, and built a house that fall. It was one of the first houses built on the hill. William Warrick Crockett died on April 7, 1913, in Orofino, Clearwater County, Idaho, and is buried in the Hill Cemetery above Orofino, just inside the front entrance on the left side. His wife Mary Susan [Slavens] Crockett died on May 16, 1934, and she is buried next to him.
