A Revolutionary Patriot, Col. Crockett was the son of Irish immigrants. As a child he was given into service with his cousin Samuel Crockett when his parents died. At the age of 20, he entered the Continental Army as a private in Capt. Posey's company. Two years later he was promoted to Lt. and served in the Virginia troops under Col. George Rogers Clarke. He fought under Clarke in several of Clarke's engagement during the war. After the war, Crockett remained in service and helped to defend several towns in the West eventually settling in Kentucky. As a citizen of Franklin County, he served as a representative for Kentucky in the Virginia State Legislature then the Kentucky Legislature after it was granted statehood. For thirty years he was sargent at arms for the Kentucky Senate. With the war of 1812, Crockett raised a volunteer unit and commanded troops in several battles including the battle of the Thames where he was cited for personal bravery. He was married to Mary Robertson with whom he had 11 children. Crockett was reburied here from another location by some of his descendants.
