Andrew Crockett III, 4th generation Crockett rifle maker, was born in 1793 and Catherine in 1798. Cousin Davy was born 7 years before Andrew; so they knew each other for many years.
The family lore tells us that in his frontier days, when Davy came to visit his Crockett cousins of Forge Seat, he smelled so bad they made him sleep in the barn. He cleaned up pretty well during his congressional years, however.
They say Davy came by Forge Seat to pick up a rifle before heading to Texas. By 1835, 1836, or thereabouts many rifles had been converted to percussion which used caps, an innovation not requiring powder. The advantage: no powder to get wet to prevent firing. Caps had to be purchased. In remote places like Texas in those years, caps were not readily available. So Davy probably came to Forge Seat for a flintlock and to say farewell.
Catherine lived some 50+ years after Davy's death (1836) and 40+ years after her husband's death (1852). She no doubt passed the family stories on to future generations.
